By Regina Kravitz
On Sat. July 17, Jill Zarin and her retinue of trendy friends, influencers, fellow “Housewives” and tons of eager party goers, sassed out in up to the minute summer dresses, took over historic Halsey House in Southampton on a steamy Saturday afternoon! The event was actually a very serious benefit for Jill’s late husband, Bobby Zarin (Zarin Memorial Trust) who passed from thyroid cancer.
This annual fun event is packed with a myriad of pop up vendors, by many female founders which include Hemphera, a CBD skin care line, Beachwaver hair tools, Modern Picnic, chic lunch carryalls which look like exoensive handbags, Coola quilted fun bags , Kendra Scott fashion jewelry, One Ocean Beauty, skin care, Oat Haus Granola Butter, a delicious spread from eating disorder advocate, Ali Broder, Nippies, camouflage nip covers , Grande Cosmetics, lash and brow enhancers, brain child of Alicia Grande and many more.
“Jill and Ally”, Jill Zarin’s and Ally Shapiro, Jill ‘s vivacious daughter, own life style brand of colorful accessories and elegant rugs, all inspired by the Real Housewives series was packed.
Guests munched on hamburgers and light fare from Zach Erdem’s standout SH fixture restaurant, 75 Main while imbibing Rose (too much) ROCKAVAKA Vodka, The Pale by Chateau D’Escalans, elegant PRESS Alcohol Seltzer and Ketel One Spritz. Of course, as summer hydration is mandatory, you could grab a La Croix, Voss or Eternal water while getting your hair Beach Waved or even a nurse injected B 12 shot from Alchemy 43.,
There was plenty of eye candy milling around the canopy covered area. Flowers, fresh and display, were everywhere and the entire feeling was oh so, feminine!!
Celebrity guests came all out and mingled with the crowd. Many Real Housewives showed up: Kara Alloway (Toronto), LeAnne Locken (Dallas) Caroline Brooks (Dubai) and Barbara Kavovit, New York and Vicki Gunvalson (Ultimate Girls Trip). Handsome Jason Tartick from The Bachelorette, Philip Bloch, celebrity stylist and Aliana and Dina Lohan could be seen lolling about. Isaac Boots, frequent Hampton fitness star was there too…and gorgeous model, Flaviana Matata. Julia Haart, TV star of My Unorthodox Life who stood out in bright emerald green and jeweled pumps of her own design.
Guest left reluctantly at 4 as a DJ spun super tunes!!A great time for a worthy cause!
