Hale Bob Romper

As I mentioned here, we were in Palm Springs this past weekend for opening night of El Paseo Fashion Week. After our big night out, we spent the next day sleeping in, having breakfast at my favorite breakfast place, getting massages and then had a nice casual night out on the town. BTW, this romper was MEANT to be worn in Palm Springs if you ask me. The print is fabulous…it has a drawstring waist (to hide the GINORMOUS amounts of food/drinks I consume whenever I’m there)…AND it has pockets. SO good.

P.S. If rompers aren’t your thing but you love the print, you are in luck because Hale Bob also has THREE different styles of dresses and a top in this exact print.

Ok, wait…how is it ALREADY Wednesday?!? I had a bit of a scare last week and my hard drive on my computer went missing. I had the spinning rainbow “wheel of  death” (I’m a Mac user) and then my screen just went blank and gave me the ol’ folder with a ? flashing screen. The last time that happened, I ended up having to buy a brand new computer. Thankfully this time I was able to salvage my computer. Although as I am typing this, I am having a bit of a panic attack knowing that I still haven’t backed it up yet. Gasp!

El Paseo Fashion Week 2015

This weekend I was invited to attend El Paseo Fashion Week in Palm Desert. I went last year and had SUCH a fun time that my husband and I are making it a tradition to attend annually now. I missed opening night last year so it was a treat to get dressed up and get a front row seat to all of the fashion/action. I brought a few different dresses with me and I’m so glad I went with the dressier option. People were dressed to the nines and some women even wore full length gowns!

El Paseo Fashion Week 2015

We arrived early for the cocktail reception and just as I was about to go in to grab my spot in the media section, I realized I had left my camera’s battery STILL PLUGGED IN charging at the hotel. We scoured the place for ANYONE who shoots with a Nikon to see if anyone had an extra battery available and EVERY single person had a Cannon. So after having a major minor panic attack, I thanked my lucky stars that I had a full battery on my iphone and made the best of it. The tenth anniversary celebration kicked off with eight designers but my top three faves were Anthony Franco, Eduardo Lucero and Oliver Tolentino.

Anthony Franco El Paseo Fashion Week

There was a major buzz in the room as soon as the Anthony Franco collection started down the runway. There was a boxing theme throughout but what caught my eye were the beautiful prints and stunning chic suits.

Eduardo Lucero El Paseo Fashion Week

The Eduardo Lucero collection had a bit of a sexy matador feel to it. That is just my interpretation…but I loved each look that came down the runway even more than the next.

Oliver Tolentino El Paseo Fashion Week

The dresses by Oliver Tolentino were BEYOND gorgeous. The crowd was ooohing & ahhhing in delight. I’m pretty sure that every woman in the room mentally checked off her dream gown that first night.

And here are just a few of my favorite random shots from opening night. My husband and I immediately recognized Karen Barone who we now know is a renowned artist. After the show, a live band had the crowd dancing. Me and my hubby snapping a selfie. After the show, we walked over to Mastro’s and ran into the legendary James Goldstein. What an interesting life that man has led. His business card really does say Fashion, Architecture and Basketball. I’d sure love a tour of his closet!

Fashion Week El Paseo is going on now through March 28th. Click here for more details or to purchase tickets.

I am a Taurus and a TOTAL creature of habit. So remixing is not a real easy task for me. I wear an outfit one way and then I typically reach for the same pieces each time I wear it. But since I can’t (well, I could but why) wear the same exact outfit on the blog twice, I made just the slightest change to this outfit and called it a day. See the previous ways I’ve worn this top and these shorts here, here and here.

I don’t know what has happened but I can no longer skip a day of washing my hair. I used to be able to wash my hair and wear it straight and then day two I would curl it. Now…I get a greasy scalp and dry ends. Throw in a windy day and here is what you get! One of…actually…a couple of my besties can go DAYS without washing their hair. One of them can go a whole week. I won’t tell ya who (not that you would know her…lol) because she may kill me but it is NOT fair.

P.S. I am LOVING these new quilted vegan leather shorts I picked up on a recent Anthro shopping trip! They are very well made and less than $100. Oh, and they also come in a cute moss color too!
