As if I didnâ€™t love my job already, Stylesight is sending my BFF/co-worker Alex and me to the Hamptons for one glorious weekend! Weâ€™ll be prowling the streets with our cameras in hand, shooting pictures of well-dressed folks for Stylesightâ€™s Street category, and generally trying to fit in with the wealthy. Itâ€™s not till the end of the month, but weâ€™re obviously super-excited and already planning our wild work weekend, right down to the clothes weâ€™re bringing. Unfortunately, my largely thrifted wardrobe wonâ€™t score me any points with the kind of people who frequent the Hamptons, but Iâ€™m ready to change. How can I go from fashion-blogging indie-rocker to party girl photographer? Keep reading, and donâ€™t forget to click â€˜moreâ€™!
Iâ€™m obsessed with these duffel bags from New Yorkâ€™s Feral Childe. One of these bad boys would be the perfect vessel for all my Hamptons gear. Iâ€™ll take the yellow, and charge it please.
I lose and re-buy sunglasses so often, the guys who sell them for five bucks in Soho actually know me. For my Hamptons weekend Iâ€™ll be looking for knock-offs of these lovelies from Gucci and Marni.
If Iâ€™m going to be outside in the sun all day taking pictures of the rich and fashionable, Iâ€™ll need a hat, if only so my mom canâ€™t say â€œI told you to wear a hatâ€ when I inevitably burn off practically my entire face (like I do every summer). Chaikenâ€™s fedora would be perfectly Hamptons, but Cantaâ€™s straw visor is way more my style.
Iâ€™ll need a perfect summer dress to wear all around town. Oh thanks, Alberta Ferreti cruise collection! Just right!
Iâ€™ve had the same bathing suit for so many years, itâ€™s kind of sad. Kelly green and dark blue, itâ€™s served me well all over world. But the Hamptons will require something a little nicer than my beat-up Roxy bikini, like one of these multi-printed be-ribboned wonders from Rio’s Salinas.
Perhaps Alex and I will score an invite to a garden party, or a gala or something else grown-up sounding. If so, this maxi dress from Etro would be perfect.
My $12 Marc by Marc tote is already getting busted, and might not be beach-worthy enough for the Hamptons. Anyone want to buy me this Luella Bartley tote as a replacement?
What bouncer wouldnâ€™t crack under the sheer weight of this dress? You can find me in the clubs, snapping pictures of good-looking drunk people, wishing I were wearing this Burberry stunner (a celeb fav).
My going out makeup here in New York tends to look something like this. I donâ€™t think Iâ€™d fit in very well in the Hamptons. And soâ€¦
Iâ€™ll be going for glowy skin and orange lips during the day, and rocking pale lips and strong brows at night. More Hamptons love to come, complete with pictures!
