Dreamin’ of Route 27 East

I was on the phone the other night with my friend Linda when she asked if I’d like to go out to her uncle’s place in The Hamptons…HELLS YEAH!!!  For those of you who don’t know, have been living under a rock, or maybe aren’t from the East Coast, The Hamptons (on the eastern-most tip of Long Island) is the absolute “ish” during the summer months.  Hanging in The Hamptons is the epitome of being sheshefroufroula. All I’m saying is it is the best.

Maybe you’ve heard of Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs’ summer white party or Star Jones-Reynolds’ (wait, didn’t she put Miss Al out of the house? Well, whatever) opulent home. There are parties, great places to eat, heated swimming pools, and wonderful beaches just 2 1/2 hours outside of Manhattan. Cute boys???!?!? Looking fierce is a must!

If you are going out east, what will you be wearing?
 

 Fendi Circle Pattern Dress, $2,480, Luella Smithy Shoulder Bag, $1,195, Alexander McQueen Mesh peep-toe Sandals, $1,540; Chloe Filao Sunglasses, $330; Louis Vuitton Cruiser Bag 45, $1,730

Ok, $7,275 for a weekend outfit for the Hamptons???!?!?! Well… YEAH!!

I’m a Bag Whore… Didn’t I tell you?

I swear I am. I will do ANYTHING for a bag. I love high end bags, bags that are worth more than a mortgage payment, and even bags bought on the sidewalk in Soho. I LOVE LOVE LOVE handbags! I think it was Wendy Williams who said one time on her nationally syndicated radio show that bags and accessories are a fat girl’s true vice when it comes to fashion. Why? Since we can’t fit the clothes and maybe even the shoes, we buy up everything else.

That is so true about me. Before I got Lasik surgery I wore Chanel glasses and carried an authentic Chanel wallet.  I have all of the Burberry fragrances along with the matching travel case that was “the free gift” with purchase.  I even own a pair of pink, Chanel double “C” earrings that were all the rage about 5 years ago. This, all because I couldn’t walk into Chanel and purchase couture in my size.

Slowly but surely, designers are coming around. Norma Kamali has put out a few plus size pieces such as this red, side drape dress made out of polyester and spandex. It goes up to 3x, but I’m not sure if it’s worth $298. We’ll just have to see… you know I ordered it! But until more designers go beyond standard sizing, I’ll continue to be a bag whore and lust after the following:

or maybe this… Chloe Paddington Tote - brick red from Chloe.  And finally, no fashionista’s bag game is correct without a little something from LV. This tote would look perfect on my trip to Paris and Provence this summer!
