So Many Cool Girls Attended This Chic Desert Retreat

Created with VS PINK

Miley Cyrus wasn’t kidding — the party does in fact start when you hop off the plane at LAX. This weekend, 15 of our CollegeFashionista Style Gurus from across the country convened in L.A. with little detail, except that they knew they were in for the road trip of their lives!

They boarded the VS PINK bus (that was, in fact, pink and as chic as you would imagine) for the ultimate road trip to the PINK Nation Motel. Stopping at can’t miss spots like the Cabazon Dinosaurs and Venice Beach, Style Gurus journeyed to their secret end location, a PINK paradise in Palm Springs.

Style Gurus soaked up some serious desert vibes at PINK’s ultimate pool party. In addition to hanging out with PINK model, Grace Elizabeth, Style Gurus showed off their sporty side on an ATV adventure, scavenger hunted through downtown Palm Springs, and bonded over a late-night movie session (and their shared #StyleGuruLove, of course).
