Poolside At The Saguaro

Romper from H&M, leopard wedges from Target,  UO sunnies, Betsey Johnson purse

Last week I went to Palm Springs for a little vacation and to work on my tan…FINALLY. People usually run from Palm Springs during the triple digit weather but you know this B likes to live dangerously.  I had big plans to do some vintage treasure hunting but ended up staying by the pool most of the time with a drink in hand and Motley Crue’s The Dirt in my lap. I’ve had that book for over a year and finally found the perfect setting to read it. It’s SO trashy and amazing. Right now I’m at the part where Nikki Sixx marries Donna D’Errico so it’s funny to see what that cuckoolicious is up to now. Anyway, who could blame me for doing some serious maxin’ and relaxin’ especially since I was staying at The Saguaro, which just opened up at the beginning of this year. Once I saw pictures of this technicolor paradise, I knew it was the one for Rie Rie. It was like staying inside of a RAINBOW!

Always got to have serious neon nails when I go to Palm Springs. Yes that is a Babysitter’s Club pin. The burger was given to me and Tavi by the always cool Karlito at one of the Rookie Strange Magic events. I’ll post about those fun times soon too. I PROMISE BABYS.

Ooooooh that hotel looks truly magical.
You’re actually making me forget about how hellishly horrid it was when I went to Palm Springs summer before last and almost died of the heat and haaaated pretty much every second of it (except for going to visit the Cabazon dinosaurs)… and now I’m actually thinking it would be fun to go back, at least if I got to stay at this place!
But yeah, it looks like it was made for you! Looking at the picture of you in front of it, I would totally believe it was your own swanky rainbow mansion.

You cutie! I love the romper and your nails. Have you finished The Dirt? There was one part that had me bawling my eyes out, but I won’t go into detail in case you’re not finished it yet.

Oh, my gosh. I’ve driven past that hotel a million times and did not know all of that was behind it. I guess I’m going to have to go check it out.

I had to stop in and tell you that your blog made me start blogging again. You have so much energy and creativity in your work that it somehow trransported through the computer, through the keyboard, into my fingers, and made me interested in continuing my blogging! Awesome, awesome work!
