Rock The Hamptons For $50!
By: Rachel McCord.
It was the kind of evening you see in movies: car services and hair stylists, socialites and iron chefs.
We are talking about my first night in The Hamptons!
When I first got the invite from some of my East Coast best friends to come to New York for an exclusive party in Southampton, I was immediately in!
With family in Long Island and a bunch of meetings and events in the City, a week long trip to New York sounded like the perfect thing!
Our day in Southampton began with shopping, lunch and some amazing gelato!
After kissing it up on the beach
We freshened up at the stunning 27 Hampton Salon, where the owners, Bianca Lefferts and James made us feel right at home!
And, Rosie did my hair like a pro!!
Afterwards, we grabbed a car and headed over to our party. (#excitement!)
And, what a spread it was!
The 40 million dollar house was decked out with iron chefs, a gorgeous bar, servers with trays of hors d’oeuvres.
And the friends, it was all about the friends!
Old ones and new ones, it was a night of fun!
But, especially, the hosts! The beautiful Janice & her handsome husband, Bobby.
When asked where I got my dress from, the partygoers where shocked that my entire outfit cost less than $50!
The dress was $11 (no joke) and my shoes were $30 from a store called Fox’s in Long Island.
The necklace came from Loehmann’s for only $6!!
And, I borrowed the vintage bracelets from my gorgeous Aunt Kim!
I loved this evening (for many reasons), but, especially because it shows that you can live the red carpet wherever you are and at any budget.
How do you live the red carpet within your budget? Let us know in your comments below!
