this folks, is how i spent most of day two.
i woke up early and had snagged two lounge chairs by 830! not only did i hear that the pool area fills up fast and gets super crowded, but apparently you’re not allowed to get up early, reserve chairs and head back to bed. no siree…staff members were picking up towels, books, magazines and the occasional flip-flop, left and right!! it was crazy. people were pissed. but hey…you snooze, you lose.
it was so nice. i lounged, read my book, drank coffee…WrW finally came out around 11…we ordered lunch, (more than) a few drinks and simply relaxed in the 100+ heat!
i even made a few friends! :)
around 3, we left the pool side to head into town for some thrifting!
boy did we score big. (more on that in part three.)
from there, we headed back to our room to freshen up and head to dinner.
stripes and florals! WrW dug it. i did, too. it’s quirky and cute!
you may recognize the red envelope purse in the pics. yep! it’s for sale in the shop! buy it…it’s only $18! in fact, if you mention that you saw it in this post, i’ll take $5 OFF! hurry though…it could be snatched up by someone else!
for dinner, we headed over to palm desert to castelli’s, an adorable little hole in the wall italian restaurant. think east coast/sopranos meets member’s only wearing retirees in california.
the lighting was dim, a piano was playing in the background, the wine was flowing and the food was great!
needless to say, i had a few glasses of wine which led to lots of silliness once we got back to our room. WrW got a few shots of me goofing around before i petered out and started yawning.
stick a fork in me, i’m done.
minutes later, i was snoozing the night away.
part three (the final part) is coming tomorrow! stay tuned…
couple other things before i go -
1. please check out the shop! i’m adding new items this week and even relisted a few pieces that have been in the shop for a long time. also, i’m thinking about having a big SPRING CLEANING sale! (i’ll let you know…)
2. BIG NEWS: today, i’m getting a double dose of exposure in the blog world from two very lovely ladies!! thank you kristin (of leproust vintage) and rachel (of mousevox vintage)!!! i am truly honored that kristin is wearing one of my finds and that rachel mentioned me on her blog, as well. :)
side note: i’ve been advertising on kristin’s blog since the beginning of may. it’s certainly helped with sales, so if you found me via leproust…cool! and thanks for stopping by and/or making a purchase. the best part though, has been getting to know kristin. we’ve emailed back and forth several times and i’m learning a lot about this very stylish, business savvy, super intelligent woman! thanks for all your help and support kristin! i hope you’ll come visit california soon!
alright my dears, i must be going.
