When you know that you are about to spend your summer weekends running all over the east end of Long Island covering the hottest events and happenings, packing for the summer is no small feat. This is GO TIME. I have to set up my GofG AMAGANSETT OUTPOST. Therefore, I have spent the last month cultivating what I feel is the perfect summer wardrobe: choice items of clothing, skincare, make up, jewelry, accessories, bags and shoes to help me keep up with the fast-paced chic of Long Island’s own Monte Carlo – Los Hamptons.
While most can pack a t-shirt, jeans, bathing suit and Havaianas to relax in for the weekend – I’ll actually be working. It’s not just my job to play ‘I Spy’ with the who’s who set on the social register and rush home to write about it – it’s really my job to look good while doing it. I consider REPORTING while LOOKING GOOD to be party camouflage – I blend in with the social landscape while watching your every move and calculating my next one.
Here is SINGLE threat’s Packing Roster for Summer Look ‘08:
Cropped Thom Brownish Seersucker pants with cuff
