    Palm Springs P.S. I Love You

    Attracted to its year-round sunshine and relative seclusion, Palm Springs has been a playground for A-list celebrities since the 1930s. This once rustic outpost and hideaway experienced a post-war housing boom driven by Hollywood's elite, transforming it from a sleepy desert town into a mecca for experimental modernist design and architecture.

    Claiming the world’s largest concentration of mid-century modern architecture, today, its premier event, Modernism Week, attracts over 100,000 visitors from around the globe to celebrate its uniquely modernist aesthetic and cultural offerings.

    This week we have a vintage Palm Springs fling in mind as the VFG gets ready for some hot summer fun in our coolest retro resort wear.

    while looking for something COMPLETELY different, I ran across this story in Forbes titled "Living Like Sinatra: The Ultimate Rat Pack Weekend in Palm Springs" which reminded me of this parade, of course, so thought I'd share it here...his lead in hooked me:

    "I was a pretty lucky kid. I remember growing up in the casino business where my father worked, and being surrounded by a lot of legendary people. From family gatherings with Frank Sinatra, to hanging out backstage with Sammy Davis Jr. at every one of his concerts, it was an exciting life for a freckled faced, innocent kid. I would come to meet the members of the Rat Pack purely by the company we kept. As a wide eyed teenager I got to know them fairly well; Dean Martin never really drank, Sammy Davis was more spiritual than you could imagine and Frank was always entertaining beautiful women."

    Thanks for that Mary! (I love Yul Brynner's shoes in the article!)
