Tucked away in a magical shop in Palm Springs, aka The Shops at Thirteen Forty Five, lies a room filled with the most BEAUTIFUL vintage scarves I have ever laid eyes on! The first time I walked in was true love at first sight! Bold colors artfully matched with patterns of flowers and shapes, I couldn’t help but feel transported to another world. I’m gushing about Candice Held of course!
When you visit desert looking for a piece of vintage Palm Springs Style you absolutely must visit the Candice Held Boutique. There are two locations, one in Palm Desert’s El Paseo Shopping District and the other inside of The Shops at Thirteen Forty Five. If you’re lucky and you visit the Palm Desert flagship store you might even run into the artist herself.
For the West Elm Girl’s Trip powered by Acme House Company I had the honor of being styled by Candice herself! Never have I worn a piece of clothing that felt so light and breezy. The Palm Springs climate is notorious for being hot and sunny but wearing these silk scarf pieces felt like a cool breeze. I loved the way that every piece had fashionable ties that helped to custom fit every piece to my body. The scarf tunic was one of the most amazing of the pieces because of it’s ability to more from one style to the next being completely reversible!!! (No joke I must have worn this 4 different times in 4 different styles because I loved this one so much.) Going on a vacation? Take this piece with you and instantly and effortlessly rock a resort chic look.
Can you tell that I am in love with the entire Candice Held line yet? Elegant silhouettes, breezy silks, beautiful vintage inspired prints, custom fits?! Should I keep going on or are you ready to run over and pick up one of your own.
