Well the kids are back at school, and luckily the weather is now holding strong despite a bit of rain and high winds last week. But the foul weather didn’t deter me from checking out the local version of Fashion’s Night Out. As I was strolling through Southampton all day, I scooted over to Alex + Ani on Jobs Lane and enjoyed the festive atmosphere while I (surprise, surprise) shopped! My purchases netted me a free gift of my choosing, and I went with a fleur de lis gold bangle. Love it when fashion is both eco-friendly – they’re made from recycled materials – and fashionable! Then it was off to Brahmin and J. Crew to check out some of their fall fashions. Many Hamptonites have taken out our fall wardrobes in anticipation of the cool weather, and both these stores are worth a looksee! There is much excitement happening on the East End this fall and lots of great shopping as well. Here are some places to check out on the East End.
