PSST! - Uptown Palm Springs vs. El Paseo, Palm Desert

Or, colorful and fun vs. sophisticated and polished



UPTOWN PALM SPRINGS

The Look: Flirty and fun, our Uptown Palm Springs gal is energized by poolside colors and midcentury designs and is the splash of daytime parties. Geometric accents and vintage-inspired accessories lead the way, while more classic Hollywood silhouettes are at the base.

The Details: Marc Jacobs sunglasses and geometric pea coat from Wil Stiles; sheer neon blouse and safari-style shorts by Trina Turk; necklace by Angela Valente Romeo from Stephen Archdeacon Gallery. Antique turquoise ring from Galleria; coral and turquoise bracelets by Michael Weems Collection; sculpted fabric pumps from K. Berwick at Raymond Lawrence; and purse handcrafted from vintage fabric
at Bolsa.

EL PASEO, PALM DESERT

The Look: Sophisticated and polished, the Palm Desert woman is put together and watchful for the next trend. Driven by social gatherings and private events, she is dressed appropriately yet comfortably for the night’s festivities. Though traditional, she desires Euro labels and heavy metal gems that electrify her wardrobe.

The Details: Metallic basket weave cape, jacquard woven pencil-cut skirt, and emerald silk blouse from Escada; sheer toner-top nylon pantyhose from St. John; Flora by Gucci fragrance with notes of gardenia and patchouli; gold bracelet and semiprecious stone earrings, mirrored clutch by Jimmy Choo, and suede and gold beveled skinny wedge shoes by Prada at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Model: Krista Coyle. Hair: Jamie Lyn Anderson for J. Russell! The Salon. Makeup: Erica Levish for Cos Bar. Photographed at Sherrill & Associates Studios in Cathedral City. Talent provided by Desert Models.
