Slide Show: A Stylish Weekend in Palm Springs
Welcome to Palm Springs!
Take a 30 minute drive past the wind turbines to Cabazon's Desert Hills Outlet Mall.
The mall boasts designer discounts from some of the biggest names in fashion (next slide), and is currently adding 50 more names to the huge compound.
Neighboring Palm Desert boasts some of the best vintage destinations, including this little mini mall with Angel View thrift shop among others.
Grab yourself some serious deals (this bracelet was a mere $25) with loads of items donated by the area's chic and often Hollywood connected residents.
Vintage Mizrahi, $15
A Saks Fifth Avenue number for $12
The Fine Art of Design boasts high end collector vintage pieces that'll have any fashion lover utterly drooling from Bill Blass leather to five decade old Chanel.
All racks are separated neatly by category.
As the clerk told me, all prices are negotiable at The Fine Art of Design.
Cruise down the main drag to dinner at one of a billion patio-perfect restaurants.
On Saturdays, visit the Palm Spring Open Air Market, which is similar to our own Saturday Market—with more sun!
Vintage shopping happens everywhere. This early 90s Miu Miu by Miuccia Prada was at the bottom of a pile for a mere (wait for it) $45.
After a long morning of shopping, hit the Palm Springs Ace Hotel pool for a day of lounging.
The pools (yes, there's secretly a second) boast a full California cuisine menu, a DJ blaring tunes, waiters that bring frosty cocktails, and pretty people all around.
Downtown Palm Springs
Don't forget to stop and get your picture taken with the Marilyn sculpture.
...or take a tour of their Walk of Fame with boot icons such as this.
Just know that the whole thing will be over too soon, and when you touch down in PDX, that bag full of fashion scores will be the only thing to remind you it wasn't just a dream.
