What to Do in the Hamptons...
When your dress rips, the party runs dry and you forgot the hostess gift
The Hamptons--with its manicured lawns and immaculately coiffed crowd--is no place for hostess mishaps or ill-fitting garments. Nip any problems that may arise in the bud with this handy East End SOS guide, from what to do when your dress rips to what to serve the 20 surprise guests who show up at your next party.
Your Favorite Dress Ripped
When the NYC fashion set needs their Marchesa gowns and Chanel tweeds dry-cleaned, there is only one place they'll go: Madame Paulette. Now the dry-cleaning mecca has launched a Hamptons-based "VIP Traveling Unit," i.e., a Mercedes sprinter that will come right to your house to handle stains, rips and hem-length issues. Heaven forbid you wear a dress that causes SJP to trip.
You Need That Last Minute Designer Outfit or Hostess Gift
Net-a-Porter, The Outnet and Mr Porter have recently extended same-day delivery to the Hamptons, meaning designer wears from the likes of Alexander Wang and Alaia are a mere click away. NAP also launched its first-ever Hamptons Concierge service. Call 877-799-0627 and get help sourcing the perfect summer outfit, selecting host/hostess gifts or finding that specialized sunscreen, all to arrive on the same day, 24-7.
20 Extra People Showed Up And You Need Booze
Now you can get wine, spirits, mixers and beer delivered to your door in an hour or less, thanks to Minibar. The best part? All you have to do is spend $25 or more and the delivery is free (the on-demand app charges vendors a percentage of each order).
You Need A Massage Now
Well, well, well… Ain’t life grand when you’re in dire need of a deep-tissue? Lucky for you there's Zeel, a smartphone app that lets you book same-day in-home massages with licensed and vetted therapists. Just choose what kind of massage you want (soothing Swedish, invigorating deep tissue or sports), appointment length (60 or 90 minutes) and your preferred therapist, and they'll be at your door (table and all) in as little as an hour.
