As I type this, I am using the power of the Internet, something I no longer take for granted. Plenty of people across the Northeastern region are still devastated by the effects of Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath. The destruction and disruption to countless lives is beyond belief. My heart goes out to everyone affected by the storm.
And all I want to do is help in any which way I can.
Global warming continues to fool us making us humans more vulnerable to extreme weather conditions. That said, l know we have to build an organizational and technological superstructure to be able to better respond to storms and rebuild after they have hit. I think the emergency response team is on that. Which leaves us the question, “WTF do I wear? Yesterday I spent the day purchasing food, purging my winter wears, and collecting supplies for the millions of people without homes. I will spend today and most of my time in the coming days on giving to those in need.
With life on hold, and everybody drying out and scrambling to figure out their next move, I pulled together this collage of what I will be living in this month that you might find helpful. Take that Mother Nature.
From left to right, top to bottom: Alice and Olivia Infinity Scarf, Mango biker jacket, get BCBG one here, Rag and Bone quilted driving gloves, Nasty Gal neon shades because whether its sunny or not, it will make people smile.
J. Crew flannel shirt, J Brand Denim Aiden low-rise boyfriend jeans. After the past few years of wearing nothing but skinny jeans and dark jeggings, I find myself obsessed with looser fit, beat-up boyfriend jeans of my youth. Plus, they allow for all sorts of forgiveness.
Linda Farrow day-glo square sunglasses for the same smile, in a different color. Balenciaga bracelet, Chanel Lip color because it’s almost winter and you are probably pale-faced like me. Ermanno Ermanno Scervino fabric bag. Call me crazy, but I love these Nike blazer sneakers, my other obsession.
Let’s not take for granted that most of the 7 billion people on this planet do not have access to the energy that we have here in the U.S.
Unlimited power is a good thing, when you have it.
