Another weekend has come and gone (sad face). I never know if I'm going to be an ultra homebody hermit or lady about town. This particular weekend I seemed to be the latter, which is great because I got to check out two places on my "hey check this out" list. Both happened to be downtown. Convenience. First up was The Well. A very cool store, salon, and event space all wrapped into one. I played a little game of dress up which completely back fired in my face because now I can't stop daydreaming about a dress. My bad. Next up on the list was the new Ace Hotel that just opened up. I've never been to the Ace in Palm Springs so I was very excited to take a peek. As expected it's equal parts über cute and über hip. Lovely place to spend a Sunday. Did somebody say BRUNCH?! Especially pleasant since southern California decided to skip winter this year. I had no idea that was possible but boy are we doing it.

It's pretty easy to find kimonos these days. Maybe a little too easy. But to find an amazing one is a whole other story. I'm very picky when it comes to wearing one of these oh-so-drapey, might as well be a bathrobe, garments. I often find with kimonos that the material is too sheer, the sleeves are too short, and the fringe is, well, cheap looking. I'm definitely not balling out of control over here but I would rather go for quality or nothing at all. Ya feel meh? This has all been a very roundabout way of saying I really dig this kimono! Four words for you: brocade floral burnout velvet. I mean. If you're in the market for some dreamy gypsy goods, Saltwater Gypsy is where it's at. And when it comes to killer kimonos, there's just no contest!
