February is a long ways away, and that's when the first presidential primaries take place. Yes – that means five more months of debates before anyone casts a vote!

If you want to take your mind off that for a while, here's another thing to look forward to in February – Modernism Week in Palm Springs.

The winter event is so large that organizers have a preview of it starting Oct. 9 that includes tours of the Sunnylands Estate, furniture sales and more (basically, it's a mini-version of its big sister).

Michelle Dalton Tyree from Fashion Trends Daily explains how Palm Springs modernism has catapulted to one of the top styles in fashion and, at the same time, infused excitement and energy into the local area.
