One thing that I quickly learned about sisters Erin and Sara Foster is that they have a wicked sense of humor.
Their punchy personalities and unique bond as sisters were first revealed on the small screen when they had their own show, Barely Famous, on VH1. Since then, the gorgeous duo are constantly tapped for business ventures, bringing their infectious personalities and brains to the forefront. Most recently, they’ve been tapped as the heads of creative for the social and dating app Bumble, which requires a lot of traveling. If you’re single, you’ve probably given it a swipe—guilty.
“When we travel together, Sara will be harassing the pilots and the flight attendants and pushing her way into the cockpit (in a safe way) to get information about the flight pattern and the weather. She’s a real psycho. I will be enjoying myself in a different seat, not next to Sara because she is uncompromising about having a window seat. And I’ve decided so am I,” Erin adds. “Erin’s usually passed out with a face mask on. I, on the other hand, haven’t slept on a plane since the ’90s. I hate flying,” Sara says.
The sisters also always make sure to carve out Hamptons time during the summer. They’re looking forward to spending time out East this August, eating delicious food paired with their favorite Cointreau original margarita (I recently attended a margaritamaking class hosted by the girls in NYC for Bumble’s collaboration with Cointreau), wearing lots of Hamptons stripes, and according to Erin, trying to look less pale. “A Hamptons girl wears a lot of white and monochromatic outfits,” Erin says on how Hamptons style differs from L.A. style, where she and Sara are based. “I channel Carolyn Bessette when I’m there. The L.A. girl wears sweats, workout clothes and skinny jeans.”
As for how they pack for said adventures? The girls, who always look effortlessly chic, swear by packing their shoes at the bottom of the suitcase, and keeping the latter in mind: “This idea that we think we’re going to dress differently on vacation is not true. If you’re not wearing something at home, don’t think you’re going to be wearing it on vacation. Also, someone just told me rolling your clothes makes a Erin and Sara Foster at the huge difference, but don’t take my word for that as I have yet to try that tactic,” Sara adds.
The girls are also jetting off to Europe this summer for a couple of weeks, including the birthplace of Sara’s husband, who hails from Germany. “He is convinced that if our kids spend six weeks a year in Germany, they will be fluent in the language. I’m no Albert Einstein, but I don’t think that’s enough time,” Sara says.
“I plan on getting engaged, although no one has hinted that’s a possibility,” Erin says laughing. Ahh… Bumble, anybody?
