The first weekend of July Fourth shopping has gone out with a bang! On Saturday, I found myself at the pre-event kickoff party Festive in Flip Flops 2 – Hamptons Summer Bash at Christopher Fischer in East Hampton. Christopher was there with his wife Joni, who was wearing a crochet linen top – the same one preferred by Beyonce! She’s “Crazy in Love” with the store, and is one of their regular customers.
Sunday was spent on Cooper’s Beach in Southampton, and I was approached by a nice gal from C. Wonder who told me that the store was giving away free flip flops as a part of their Star Spangled Celebration! I had to check it out. The music was popping on Main Street, and I was bobbing my head, as I grabbed a pair of magenta sandals and browsed the rest of the brightly colored fabulous finds. I snagged a beachy rope bracelet to wear to my next summer gala. Week Two of Fourth of July is here. Let’s get shopping!
