Palm Springs Vision Quest

And I'm back. For various reasons I decided to take a break from posting, but now I'm back and will do my best to post at least a few times a week. First things first, the pictures from my Palm Springs Vision Quest trip from January. This trip was so amazing. The Ace Hotel was awesome and we spent much of our time by the pool. We also went to Joshua Tree and The Integratron, and we were visited by a Shaman, who took us on a journey in our imaginations to find our spirit animal (mine was a parrot, which represents trying to find my voice in life.) Here are some of my favorite shots:

And here are some shots some of the other girls took:

Desert Pangs

This gorgeous spread featuring the highlights of the Spring Collections is soooo making me long for the sun and desert landscape of Palm Springs. The sun finally graced Portland with it's presence today and yesterday but it has been super cold and windy, so it kind of does not count (at least to me.) I think the California girl in me is starting to come out more and more lately. This spread is also reminding me that I need to post the pictures I took while I was in Palm Springs, hopefully will get to that tomorrow. Until then...

This picture, both in dress and pose, totally represents my weekend in Palm Springs. Very Vision Quest.
