Palm Springs Weekender

Palm Springs is the mecca of mid-century and a great place for a Time-Warp Weekender. The Del Marcos hotel is a boutique hotel located in the epicenter of the city's vintage shops, restaurants, and lounges. Built in 1947 by William F. Cody, this desert oasis sits between California's glorious mountains and palm trees, making for a beautiful poolside view. 

With 17 rooms, this darling historic hotel makes for the perfect private party as it has just the right amount of rooms for those who come to the weekender. With the entire place rented, The Del Marcos goes out of their way to make sure the group has a wonderful time and truly makes you feel like you're in the year 1947. 

It was a whirlwind weekend, as we visited places like Bootlegger Tiki, Lulu's, Melvyn's (where Mr. Sinatra had his wedding party) Tonga Hut & so much more. What made this weekender even more memorable, was that it was Pride week! It was quite the party, not only at The Del Marcos, but on every street. We also got to see The Psychedelic Furs, which was really amazing. Our Platinum Pal Lindy Sue caused quite a stir with her Poodle Do! There were also so many poodles, and I made it a point to pose with a few <3

One of my favorite parts of the trip was the Pajama Party, as each room had a designated cocktail to make for their guests. We made "Suffering Bastards," which I thought were amazing! Everyone did such a wonderful job of hosting and dressed beautifully in authentic 1940's-1960's sleepwear and robes. I wore my black 1950's peignoir with marabou trim and pink satin bows, paired with my lucite pink marabou boudoir heels. I hated to leave 1947 and go back to reality! It was the most nostalgic experience ever, with so many people who share the same interests.
