Even if you do not live on Long Island or even in the New York City area, you are certain to be aware of The Hamptons. The area has come to be a place where many financiers to celebrities call home...in the summer. And, it often makes various "news" outlets because of that. Of course, that is one side of The Hamptons. The side that I enjoy the most is that I have come to appreciate by getting to know the locals.
As a road cyclist, one of my favorite summer Hamptons activities is going for a ride while there is still dew on the grass. The country roads offer beautiful scenery, and there is something special about being on the road without cars, taking in the fresh air and enjoying the sites. Of course, doing this with friends is always a plus.
A way to end a good bike ride is to stop at a roadside fruit and vegetable stand. I'm a fan of eating local so what better way than this. Southampton also offers a nice Farmer's Market, which if your timing to the area aligns, is always a good stop.
Another must-do for me when I'm in The Hamptons is to stop at a Hampton Coffee. They roast their beans in Southampton, and even if you are just passing through, you can pick up some of their beans to go. They have multiple locations throughout Long Island.
Of course, summer in The Hamptons is not complete without a visit to the beaches. We haven't had trouble finding a spot on the beach, although, parking can be challenging. So, be sure to make a day out of it, as you are there surely to relax and get some downtime.
Lastly, be sure you explore the towns of The Hamptons too, as they all offer something special. Whether it is the pop-up shops in Southampton or the museums in East Hampton or the lighthouse in Montauk, there is more to The Hamptons than meets the eye. There is a community of individuals that live there that make it a pleasure to come back year after year.

Now, let’s take a close look at what is one of the most important features of the Marmont. The short answer is: PRIVACY. The hotel never publicly discusses its famous guests or reveals the names of those currently staying there. In other words: zippered lips are stage center.
When the first Monday in May rolls around, all eyes in the fashion world look to The Met. That is when New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts its fundraising gala for its Costume Institute. The gala's theme coincides with that year's fashion exhibit, which runs for a limited time. This year, the theme is "Notes on 'Camp'". Here's a brief description of that theme, courtesy of The Met.
For this week’s blog, and the next, I read three books about the famous Chateau Marmont Hotel, located at 8221 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. All three books, (that I will list at the end of next week’s blog) were written at different times. This means the information goes from 1929 when the Marmont opened to the present day. Some things may have changed – but not many.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
