Molly Sims: 10 Hamptons Favorites

Molly Sims is having a busy year. Between her recent engagement to producer Scott Stuber and a burgeoning jewelry collection, Grayce by Molly Sims, the powerhouse has her hands full. Although this model-turned-actress-turned-designer splits her time between coasts, her first home purchase was in Wainscott. Here, she shares the things she loves most about Hamptons living.
1. My backyard. I don’t get to enjoy it enough, but some of my fondest memories are at that outdoor picnic table with friends just reminiscing and sharing stories for hours.
2. Nick & Toni’s (136 N. Main St., East Hampton, 324-3550) is a classic that needs no explanation. But, two words: zucchini chips!
3. Gary Friedman took Restoration Hardware (69 Main St., East Hampton, 907-1300) to the next level. I’ve always been a fan, but now I’m a fanatic. As a design junkie, I love the direction this company is going.
4. Twice Upon a Bagel (358 Montauk Hwy., Wainscott, 537-5553)—what better way to treat myself after a good workout (or when I blow off the workout in lieu of being lazy). The egg-white salad is my favorite; I keep trying to make it at home, but it is never the same.
5. I love shopping at all the stores in East Hampton, but I’m dying for the amazing beachcomber bike they’re selling at Juicy Couture (17 Newtown Lane, East Hampton, 324-2843). It is adorable and perfect for the Hamptons.
6. Sunset Beach (35 Shore Road, Shelter Island, 749-2001) reminds me of summertime in Europe. It is both chic and relaxing at the same time, and quite amazing for people watching.
7. Every summer I find home decór, including accessories, furniture and candles, at Mecox Gardens (66 Newtown Lane, East Hampton, 329-9405; 257 County Road 39A, Southampton, 287-5015). It is perfect for beach houses and your real home, as well.
8. Main Beach is truly gorgeous. The sand is supple, and the horizon is breathtaking.
9. Eres (55 Main St., East Hampton, 604-5544) is a new arrival to the shopping scene that will quickly become an East Hampton favorite. Gorgeous swimsuits and lingerie? Yes, please!
10. Wellnest in Sag Harbor (125 Main St., Sag Harbor, 899-4600)—eco has never looked so chic. With beautiful items for your home and delicious organic juices, how can you go wrong?
