Did you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend? I hope so. I spent mine barbecuing with great friends visiting from San Francisco and playing in the Mojave desert at the Rock Reach House. Oh, and by going wild with my new obsession: Hipstamatic. If you love Polaroids and are mourning the loss of Polaroid (sniff, sniff), or are just a vintage photography junkie, then you’ll love Hipstamatic too. For only $1.99, you can download the iPhone app and then take photos with your iPhone and they’ll “develop” like these, making anything look super cool — even my feet! You can select different lenses and frame styles and impress your friends on Facebook. These snaps are from the Rock Reach House (which you can rent nightly and enjoy your own stargazing and rock-climbing and cowboy tub-soaking adventures) and from our “summer house” in Palm Springs. I love how Hipstamatic makes everything look so vintage California-cool.
And one more snap that I just had to share (not taken with Hipstamatic, but altered in Photoshop)… My fab friend Helen in her desert-perfect Marc by Marc Jacobs dress and me in gingham jumping for joy in Pioneer Town. We had to do something to work off lunch at Pappy & Harriet’s! Here’s to a summer filled with joy xx.
