This week the petite and adorable Alice+Olivia designer, Stacey Bendet, occupies the Hampton Style spotlight, dishing on the Hamptons/L.A. commuters, and Petrón Silver margaritas, and who has the best vegan chefs. While I love and lust after her cocktail dresses, I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed in some of her recommendations.

Dinner at Nello's? Really? (p.s. did anyone else hear about Nello being arrested this Saturday night?!)

And sure, Sant Ambroeus has great gelato, but can't she think of anywhere less bromidic? And how can John Keegan's History of Warfare (her current bedside buddy) be both "brilliant" and "an alternative to ambien?" And lastly, while she looks lovely in most of her photos, what (and why) is this? And this?
