We may be a month behind weather-wise this year, but that doesn’t mean June isn’t right around the corner.
June being a highly popular month for weddings, it seems fitting to introduce to you the reversible dress by Durga-Kali. There are several to choose from, but my dress has one black side, for evenings, and a peach side, perfect for daytime. Clearly this economizes—in suitcase space, overall wedding expenditures, and in brain-power put into the whole “what to wear” predicament. Other Durga-Kali reversible dresses transform from a knee-length cocktail frock to a full-length gown. Amazing, right? Take a look at all the various colors and styles at durga-kali.com.
Dresses checked off that list, how about shoes? I’m a big fan of finding Louboutin, Manolo, Jimmy Choo and Roger Vivier at Collette. Barely worn and sold for a fraction of the original price, they make every outfit look extra stylish. Collette Designer Consignment is located at 22 Main Street in Southampton. Call 631-287-5100 or visit their new website, colletteconsignment.com.
If you’re looking for a very specific wedding shoe, might I suggest Jildor. They have an entire section devoted to those special-occasion satin ones. Try not to get sidetracked with the newest selection of cute flats and summer sandals! Jildor is located at 30 Jobs Lane, Southampton. Call 631-283-2450 or visit jildorshoes.com.

Makeup just might be the most fun of all, but it all depends on whom you ask. If you’re not entirely comfortable with doing your own makeup, a must on your to-do list is a visit to Trish McEvoy. The makeup artists have a special technique for teaching self-application, in keeping with McEvoy’s mission of empowering women. Believe me, after mastering the McEvoy method for applying eyeliner, you’ve got it forever. Life skills, people. They also offer full makeup application for special occasions along with purchases. New for the 2014 season is the Smokey Emerald shade of 24-Hour Eye Shadow and Liner. It’s a creamy eye shadow pen that glides smoothly onto the lid or lash. You might also love the Eye Essentials Collection “Simply Chic.” The palette includes eye base upper-eye brightener, a shadow primer, intense gel eye liner and eight shadows that work from day to night. They’re back for the season now at 28 Jobs Lane in Southampton. Call 631-488-4880 or visit
