Consignment Clothing & Blogging Buddies in Palm Springs


Next door to The Estate Sale Company is this amazing consignment clothing store.


It's full of the most incredible selection of vintage items I've ever seen!


From luggage to sunglasses, footwear, handbags, couture, designer, furs, swimwear, scarves, jewelry, accessories...


for both men and women.


It's stuffed to the rafters and well, pretty overwhelming to say the least.


Love this photo!  
Both Eddie & Jaithan did end up scoring some killer shoes!


As you can imagine, E+J caused quite a stir in the desert!
Their good looks didn't go unnoticed :)



Eddie thought this couture number was pretty amazing.


Love the feathers!


I was on overload and just snapped photos without really taking time to check out the merchandise.


We all agreed that this number had Charlotte Moss written all over it.



Eddie found a rack of Trina Turk shorts and slacks for men.



I love Jaithan's expression!




After our long day we arrived back at the villa to meet up with Ashlina, the gorgeous blogger behind Secrets of Domestic Bliss, and her gorgeous boyfriend Clark, and equally gorgeous cousin Rico, for an amazing meal of fish taco's made by my wonderful husband Chris.



Here's Clark showing off the delicious fish taco's!
Isn't he adorable?  He's an aspiring actor and I'm sure he's going to make it big in Hollywood!  Not only is he good looking (half Egyptian) but has great taste (Ashlina) and a fabulous personality!


Ashlina is even more beautiful (inside and out) in person, if you can believe that!


It felt like we'd known each other forever!

 

Love this photo!!


 Ashlina's cousin and roommate, Rico, is not only gorgeous but funny as hell!  He had us in stitches all night long!  It was a fun and fabulous evening!


Blog On!

I miss you terribly! I haven't been visiting any of my blogs. I've been a slave to my working madness. I'm hoping to be able to breathe again soon! So sorry I haven't visited in so long...

red ticking said...

looks sooo fun... love those kind of stores... the buried treasure to be had is amazing! xx

Privet and Holly said...

Wow, Mom and I ALSO went in that store and thought it was great! There was a dress in the window that initially caught my attention....It is overwhelming inside.

Just wanted to let you know that all this talk about estate sales got me thinking about my husband's cousin, who owns an estate sale company here....We went to one of his sales this morning and I'm thinking of helping him out and learning the biz. It really is so much fun to prowl for treasures and I thought it might be cool to be on the other side of the fence. We'll see. Thanks for the PS memories and for inspiring me in this direction. xx P&H
