The week before last we were in Palm Springs shooting our Spring GMG Collection. We wrapped up in four days (with one cut short due to heavy rain and some flooding) and got some beautiful sunny California weather. It was so fun having both Kristina and Venita modeling for us and we can’t wait to share everything we captured along with all of our new styles coming April & May. Afterwards, Thomas and I had the weekend to enjoy before we flew back to the NYC winter. We stayed at Holiday House, which is located in downtown Palm Springs, whose interiors were designer by Mark D. Sikes, one of my favorites in both fashion and home.
Since we had some down time after the shoot, Thomas and I took it easy and roamed around downtown, biking (with these adorable polka dot bikes from the hotel) to lunch at Grand Central, then milkshakes at Great Shakes, followed by popping into some home shops along our path. The warm California sun felt amazing, especially after being huddled up inside for most of December and January.
I brought with me some of my newest pieces by MDS Stripes (Mark D. Sike’s clothing line), this rainbow checked skirt and paired it with this oversized white Madewell shirt that I tied up. The skirt also had a matching tied top, along with a shirtdress version that’s available here. And true to my warm weather style, I had my espadrilles with me- this new light yellow pair by my favorite brands, Castaner.
