What I like about Long Island (for I do not live in what is technically termed ‘The Hamptons’) can be summed up in these pictures…..Image

and well, I’m just going to say it – though it does me no favours whatsoever…..

the second hand Hermes bag store in Southampton – yes they really are Hermes (and Chanel and Celine and Bottega) and yes these guys source them from everywhere – no website yet – why? Because they are TOO DAMN BUSY to build one…I know it’s shallow, but visit if you can, because it’s a wonderful historic treasure trove of bags (as they used to be….)Image
