Rand Luxury continued their summer brunch series in Bridgehampton in a $9.995 million dollar estate that is currently on the market. Aston Martin supplied the gorgeous cars while guests enjoyed brunch and cocktails poolside, while several guests opted to relax in the mansion itself given it was 95 degrees outside.
Revolve held their fourth and final weekend in the Hamptons with Nicole Richie of House of Harlow 1960. This relaxing poolside cocktail party has become a favorite out East with celebrities, bloggers, and influencers. Patron and Moet provide the Rose and Cocktails while guests lounged poolside and some took an inevitable dip in pool amidst the heat wave. The @Revolve girls were dressed in Nicole’s House of Harlow 1960 Collection.
