Festival Diaries | Welcome to Palm Springs


Angela Pham



I never got to experience the poolside raucousness that is Spring Break, so imagine my glee when the Steve Madden team approached me about bunking at their Coachella property in Palm Springs! Without hesitation, I packed my most magnificent caftans and bikinis in a suitcase, flew to Orange County (where my momma resides) and arrived at the Palm Springs residence around sunset yesterday.

I was so elated to find my own immaculate room, and waiting for me, the perfect pair of Steve Madden platforms, and a Survival Kit filled with beauty and food festival essentials. I was the first guest to arrive (yes, very The Real World), so admittedly, I snooped. And I liked what I snooped -- a very generously stocked fridge, fanned issues of Steve Madden Mag and my fav zine Galore, the perfect pool to tan besid, and, it goes without saying, lots of Steve Madden shoes. I didn't waste any time after unpacking -- I slipped on a red dress, some lip stain, and my Steve Madden SHEREEN platforms, and headed off to a friend's poolside gathering down the block for some serious weekend planning.

Stay tuned all weekend long, and keep up with me as I make my way through the Palm Springs festival scene!
