vintage mustard blouse: thrift store
vintage 1950s Guatemalan hand embroidered skirt. I'm selling a black version
and a pinkish version
at the shop (but kept the teal for myself, I couldn't resist!)
Worishofer sandals: Amazon
Last Friday Grant and I took a short trip up to Palm Springs in order to see a band,
The Thee Oh Sees, play at Pappy and Harriets. We flirted with the idea of driving back and forth just for the show but...just no. Instead we grabbed a room at The Ace and enjoyed the desert while we could. We did a bit of thrifting that afternoon and usually I have awful luck at the stores in Palm Springs because I feel like they get really picked over from all of the desert treasure hunters but I did manage to find a few things for the shop--hooray!
After dinner at Jakes
(get the meatloaf and mac 'n' cheese. TRUST.) we drove over to Pappy and Harriets
which is near Joshua Tree. Both Grant and I had never been to this venue but had heart great things about it. Well, it truly did not disappoint. It's essentially a saloon and it's decorated with Western ephemera and show fliers but what's great about it is that it doesn't feel like a hokey and weird wild west themed bar. The place just has a special vibe, and I'm sure the smell of mesquite when you first walk in doesn't hurt either!
Finally, after a few opening acts,
The Thee Oh Sees went on. They kind of reminded me of The Cramps. They were good!
PS: If you're in SF, you should try to make this! Come check out Grant's work
, laugh at his captions, drink free beer, and peruse the shop! Also, he'll be selling prints and zines so nows the time to be emptying out those piggy banks if yaknow what I mean ;-)
