No To The Beach, But Yes To The Beach Bag

In Accessories, Hamptons on May, 30 2011

Last night was full of parties in the Hamptons.  Everything from movie premieres, to magazine parties, to store events, and more.  I attended The Hamptons Magazine Party, and a shopping event at Southampton store, Tenet.  The Hamptons Magazine Party (at The Southampton Social Club) never fails to disappoint with its A-list crowd, yummy hors d’oeuvres, great DJ, and fabulous giveaways.  Attendees included Chelsea Handler (the cover star of the May issue of Hamptons Magazine), Beth Ostrosky Stern, Katie Lee Joel, Jonathan Cheban, and more.  Lacoste had a large table full of giveaways that attendees could choose from: sandals, watches, hats, etc.  The party at Tenet was chill and fashionable with its young crowd, and ability to shop the great selection of clothes, shoes, and accessories from brands like Gryphon, Whit, and more.

Luckily, the sun was shining all of last night for those who were out and about; however, not today.  The weather is incredibly unpredictable.  Today was supposed to be the warmest and sunniest day of Memorial Day Weekend on the East End; however, as I am currently looking out my window, it’s pouring.  For those in the Hamptons, I don’t think it’s going to be a beach day, but don’t worry, because we have the whole summer ahead of us.

Even though this won’t come in great use today, it will for the next three months.  Mar Y Sol just came out with a fabulous ‘Leather Handled Straw Tote‘ that is chic, cool, and reasonably priced.  Perfect for the beach, this tote is big enough for all of your needs: beach towel, sunscreen, light reads, sunglasses, ipod, phone,  popchips, you name it.  I love the combination of colors, natural with green detail, because it’s simple yet with a pop of color.

The tote can be worn with lots of different outfits and suits, but here’s a suggestion: a sexy cheetah one-piece bathing suit, black Burberry jelly sandals, round tortoise shades, a brown oversized fedora, and brown feather earrings.  Check out the tote on for $98.
