Two friends. Two opinions. Desert Guide contributor Nick Marcucci and Editor Ebony March discuss their favorite happenings and places in the Coachella Valley. We call their dance … The Cha Cha.
Ebony: Palm Springs is known for its awesome vintage shops.
Nick: And its vintage people.
Ebony: So true. There’s a great vintage clothing store called the Frippery. (457 N. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs. 760-861-9747).
Nick: Weren’t they recently at Coachella?
Ebony: Yeah, they had a pop-up shop there. What’s interesting is that the Frippery carries one-of-a-kind looks that you’re not going to find in chain stores.
Nick: I’m looking at the website right now. I see a lot of cool looks. I think it’s great to find a girl who’s in the know with her individuality.
Ebony: Oh really? You’re kind of sweet-talking me in my good ear. A great place to rock your new vintage finds is at Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day, an all-volunteer event for male, female, and juvenile cancer survivors.
Nick: What an awesome way to celebrate life in Palm Springs.
Ebony: Not only in Palm Springs. It’s in all 50 states. Survivors can partake in a free day of beauty donated by folks in the industry. It’s held on the first Tuesday in June — that would be June 4.
Nick: Travel to Bloch Cancer Survivors Park in Rancho Mirage for some quiet meditation on your way to your appointment.
Ebony: Wow, look at you! You’re my new favorite cancer guru.
