If you’ve ever been to Ricky’s in the city or in East Hampton, you know it’s full of shampoo, moisturizers and various other sundries. Well, I was in there buying my favorite hair wax (DeFi – you don’t think my look just happens do you?) the other day when I stumbled upon one of Ricky’s more unusual items; the SVEDKA VODKA WALK OF SHAME KIT!! For $25 bucks the kit includes, deodorant, flip flops, folding sunglasses and dry shampoo among other items to mask incriminating behavior. I personally love this idea but it’s not as much fun as seeing cocktail dresses, wrinkled suits and high heels at 7am.
Apropos of nothing, I’ve had tons of house guests this past week and I don’t even want to begin counting the numbers. But I need to look stylish when new guests come to town. My Canadian guests, Alan and Eva are arriving from Toronto tomorrow. Damn, what will I wear!? Well low and behold, If you’ve been in the village of East Hampton lately you may have noticed lots of bags that say “JOE FRESH.” No, Trader Joe’s hasn’t arrived on the east end (wishful thinking) but rather a chic affordable Canadian apparel company. Now,
I’m sure Fresh Joe won’t like this but I kind of think of them as a Canadian H&M. Located at the site of last years Tumi store on Main St., the company’s web site describes their designs as “stylish, fresh and affordable apparel and accessories for all seasons…. featuring more than 400 items, from chic footwear to the latest in outdoor fashions.” Upon reading their information, I think they may have started their stores in conjunction with grocery stores. Either way, it’s a Wednesday afternoon and the store is jumping. See, there is more to Canada then Celine Dion.
