Be Bold

Tara explains her bold choice in fashions and why she doesn't need Wilson's advice.

Oh I love a good road trip! This episode cracked me up.

It was the first time Mr. Fabulous twirled his way into The Hamptons, giving his unsolicited opinion about my bright and cheerful beach frock. But I'll take the compliment from fashion legend Jackie Rogers as I walked into her home, "Oh I love that. That’s wild," over his disapproval.

Listen, it takes confidence to wear something so bold. Yeah, perhaps it's not the best piece to flatter one's shape, but that was not the point in wearing it. I originally bought it for summer trips to Cannes because I was attracted to its festive pattern and because the fabric is light, airy, and loose-fitting, which is what you want in the heat.

Jackie was very hospitable with sharing her cozy beach cottage, amazing stories and gorgeous gowns with us, and it certainly was touching to learn that her earnings will be donated to Green Chimneys, since the real gift is in the giving.

From lunch at Pierre's to the small little beach house where we ended our trip, the two Amys had enough fashion fabulosity to satisfy Ambria's grasping enthusiasm. Though it was a close call, I'm so thrilled we walked away with the Alberta Ferretti skirt, which is quite the stunner. And I was clearly wrong about Amy Number 2's house. No hitting the jackpot there, as she wasn't prepared to part with much.

Visiting the Wolffer Estate was a highlight. Joey Wolffer is a smart woman with a novel idea. What a life, shopping the world to find fashion that speaks to her and then hosting exclusive shopping parties in her Styleliner.

Actually, the real highlight was my morning surf lesson, which had me in a chill headspace so I was able to go with the flow and maneuver around Wilson's negative assessment of my fashion sense. I'll start paying him alright -- for him to keep his opinions to himself because I certainly don't need his fashion two cents.

And for all you designate drivers, preggers or non-alcoholic drinkers, be sure to try the Wolffer Verjus!
