I just got back from a trip to Palm Springs, CA. It was a great trip and I hope to write a quick post about it later for you all. Something that Palm Springs is known for, is there amazing thrift stores and old mid-century feel to the town. It was totally a getaway for Hollywood folks in the 60s.
I went to 3 different places for vintage shopping, I swept those three places clean, but I think my favorite find is this beach turban. It is so Barbie pattern/colors, it reminds me of being a little girl. I wore this to the pool on Saturday and felt so cute. Like *I was a Barbie in Palm Springs in the 60s.
Funny story…I later was chatting with a guy at my friend’s party and he asked if I had been to the pool yet, and I said “yes! i was there today. i was the one in the turban.” I totally was just joking and didn’t think he’d have noticed me. And he said “Oh yeah! I saw you! My girlfriend was making fun of you! She was looking at you and saying ‘who wears that?’.”
Haha. My friend and I were speechless. Actually, maybe we weren’t. Is giggling considered speech? Because that is what we were. Giggling. Anyway, it was funny, because wearing the turban had never crossed my mind as something so weird.
Do you like my beach turban? Don’t you think we should start accessorizing with lots of hats like the Britts do? And the fancy people from the 60s? I do.
*In high school I was voted “Barbie Look Alike” for my senior superlatives. This is something I’m still very proud of.
