Palm Springs and Vegas Trip

Here's What I Wore on the plane to Palm Springs...White denim Ralph Lauren pants, gingham shirt and cardi from J Crewlet, 'Spike the Punch' tote from Lilly Pulitzer, and  pink Tory Burch 'Miller' sandals.

We stayed at the Agua Caliente Resort in Rancho Mirage, California.  Nice!  Very nice.

Room Service is a must for Miss Janice!

For a long day of shopping, I wore a comfy Lilly skort in the 'Fried Catfish' pattern, with a pink Lilly polo and green J Crewlet cardi.  My flip flops are pink and green gingham and monogrammed, as is my pink gingham coozie and my pink Bermuda Bag.

I rode by our old house...I really liked that house.  We had a beautiful pool and jacuzzi in the back.  The new owners have torn out all my pink and green flowers and gone "desert."

Road by my old church...St. Margaret's.  Loved this church.

Of course, I couldn't go to Palm Springs without shopping on El Paseo...the Rodeo Drive of the desert.  It was in the triple digits during our entire stay, so I tried to limit my time outdoors.

I just had to have a Sammy's Woodfired Pizza chopped salad with pepperoni. This salad is a must-have if you visit the area!

Comfy outfit...again.  I wore the 'Malibu Vintage' shorts by Lilly with a with monogrammed white tee, and aqua Lilly cardi, with aqua Lilly thongs.

I've been wanting to see "Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's" but it's not playing in my small Florida town, so off I went to the cool theatre in Palm Desert.  I really liked this movie...very interesting.  I think I should have aspired to be a saleslady at Bergdorf's!

Fish Tacos...a must in Southern California!

Wednesday I wore my Lilly 'Hotty Pink First Impression' dress with gold Ralph Lauren sandals and my gold Tory Burch purse.

We had a great evening with our friends Nicoletta, Mary, John, Jeff, and Nicole.  They all understand my obsessions!

Thursday, it was off to Vegas Baby!  We stayed at Caesar's...this is where we always stay and I wouldn't stay anywhere else.  I love the place.  I love the location, the customer service, the Forum Shops.  I even love the  fragrant scent they pipe into their air vents.

There are so many restaurants to choose from at Caesar's, but husband and I are both hooked on Gordon Ramsay's Pub & Grill!  The best!!!!!  We are addicted to those sliders.

Payard's Patisserie is my favorite spot for sweets, espresso, and watching the people go by at Caesar's.

As I mentioned before, I love the location of Caesar's on The Strip...easy walking distance to the Fashion Show Mall, Bellagio Shops, and all the other fabulous shopping areas.

Showgirls on the sidewalk...Only in Vegas on The Strip!  The girl on the right is wearing stockings with high heeled open-toe sandals.  Lord have mercy, fashion faux pas!  I guess when you have a fabulous figure like hers, you just don't care about those things.

I did some shopping at Louis Vuitton and LOVE their window display!

I prefer that my ashes be "Scattered At Neiman Marcus" thank you very much!

I love shopping and lunching at Neiman's!

Saturday, I wore the Lilly 'Chin Chin' dress with the Lilly derby hat.

My "Accessories of the Day" Louis Vuitton 'Eva', Lilly Pulitzer monogrammed Derby hat, pearls, white Bonanno sandals, monogrammed 'Chin Chin' coozie, 'Chin Chin' iPhone cover, and pearls, and Chanel sunglasses.  I cannot tell y'all how many people commented on my matchy matchy outfit.  I don't think these outfits are worn much in Vegas!

Next, I'm off to Georgia to visit with Mama.  Not a whole lot of glitz and glamour, certainly no fancy stores there, but just as exciting to be with my Mama!

Miss Janice,
Thanks for the 'blog vacation'. We always stay at Ceasar's....the pool is my favorite pool in the world. Cabana, please. Although, I've never been to the pool at the Ritz in Paris....a dream to be fufilled, when renovations are complete. You must have turned some heads, looking so pretty in pink and green. You made us all proud.

Warmly, Kathleen

I didn't realize you use to live in Palm Springs! One of my best friends was born and raised there and is now the Communications person for the Mayor and city. She's always meeting fabulous people and doing fabulous things :) Looking good Miss J!

It certainly looks like you're having a wonderful trip, thank you for taking us along :)
