Vanity Fair’s Contributing Editor heads to Panama.

WHERE I’M GOING…
Pedasi in Panama
WHAT I’M PACKING…
My Wolford Fatal dress and Eres bikini. My Calvin long-sleeve silk jersey dress. I wear it everywhere I go, from a beach cover up to the Academy Awards. My Hermes canvas tote and my Prada gold t-strap sandals — I am either wearing these or I am bare foot. My favorite Pucci towels always make the room brighter! My gold Cartier chain which never leaves my neck! Frederic Fekkai Sun Bandana for my hair. A great book… I love How Wall Street Created A Nation by Ovido Diaz Espino. And my Blackberry and iPad 2.
DURING THE DAY I WILL…
Surf, surf and surf some more…. Horseback ride and hike.
AT NIGHT I WILL…
Lie on my back, stare at the stars and read a book.
GAME I LIKE TO PLAY…
Perudo, Scrabble, Truth or Dare and, of course, Backgammon.
FAVORITE FALL BEAUTY SECRET…
Tom Ford’s nude lipstick and lip-gloss — keep it simple. Less is always more.
FAVORITE FALL DRINK…
It always has to be fresh fruit or vegetable juice of whatever is in season.
TRAVEL TIP…
Eat and drink on the time zone of where you are going, as you’re getting on the plane to go there.
SECRET ONLY A LOCAL WOULD KNOW…
Where Pedasi is!
ON MY PLAYLIST…
Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele, Bruno Mars, Jean-Philippe Rio-Py and Charlie Siem.
