fall in love with the fine art of design…

…for the Easter weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to head out to Palm Desert to enjoy some time with his family and get in some much needed R&R. Who knew I was about to meet my new crush – The Fine Art of Design! This amazing store (on Highway 111) caught my eye as we drove home one night and, in true romantic fashion, it was love at first sight…

get ready to fall in love


With a love of vintage and obvious amazing taste in fashion, this Parson’s grad, Nicolas Delgado, is sitting on a pretty little vintage gold mine! Opening The Fine Art of Design last July in his home town of Palm Desert, Nicolas purchases and consigns both vintage and high end designer labels.  Merchandised by garment type, it is beyond easy to get lost in all of the beautiful pieces…


vibrant designer blazers, jackets, and tops


vintage dresses from chanel, ysl, christian lacroix, and more


little gems from chanel




gowns and suiting


one of many amazing things


mcm, gucci, fendi, prada, dior...

The Fine Art of Design also hosts a great little book shop (the store actually started with books and then added in the fashion) which has amazing vintage paperbacks, coffee table books, and even old albums. I met both Nicolas and Katherine Martinez (book shopkeeper) while I was there and they truly couldn’t have been more adorable. It made me fall in love with this store even more.

something for everyone


Very similar to when I first met my boyfriend 4 years ago, I took an instant liking to The Fine Art of Design and couldn’t stop talking about it the rest of the weekend. Needless to say, I am anxiously awaiting my second date!
