Erin & Sara Foster’s Social Media Rules to Live By

Your (hilarious) guide to an Instagram-ready lifestyle

Erin and Sara Foster, the comedic sisters behind VH1’s hit show Barely Famous are teaming up with Gilt to bring you the ultimate guide to living like an Instagram celeb. You can now shop the sisters’ picks for a (picture) perfect life on Gilt and see their Gilt City guide to Instagram-approved spots in Los Angeles. Check it out here.

From how to nail the perfect #OOTD to mastering a chic gym selfie, the Fosters show us how it’s done in this rollicking Gilt-exclusive video. And below, the sisters share some of their favorite accessories that are guaranteed to bring in the likes.


#1. Oscar de la Renta Backgammon Set

“When someone asks you what you do in your spare time, it’s important to lie. You can’t say you search the internet for unflattering pictures of celebrities. You have to say you do crossword puzzles and play backgammon. The best way to make this seem believable is to own a beautiful backgammon set like this one. Anyone who comes to your house will think you are chic and sophisticated.” – Erin Foster


#2. Saint Laurent Candy 85 Lace Platform Sandal

“It is extremely important to appear taller than everyone else in photos. These shoes not only give you more height then you can dream of but allow you to outlast everyone on the dance floor because they’re more comfortable than a sneaker. Hedi Slimane is a genius!”   – Sara Foster 

#3. Louis Vuitton Duffle

“If you’re going to post that cheesy picture in front of a private plane, you better be standing next to some nice luggage. Also, traveling with black luggage is just tempting someone to accidentally take your suitcase home with them and wear your underwear. At least if you swap with someone else’s Louis Vuitton at the airport, you know they’re rich and you’re getting some good stuff.” – Erin Foster
