Hurricane Irene is approaching and everyone is preparing for her arrival. Like Dorothy in The Wiz (yes that’s correct Barry Gordy’s version), I clicked my heels 3x with the excitement of getting caught up in a whirl wind of new trends for the coming Fall/Winter season.From flirtatious ruffles with feminine flair; the baroque warriors and ice queens; eye-catching over-sized cocktail rings; creative designs with minaudieres and furs; to ladies of the jungle in survival mode getting down to business to suit up.
So while Mayor Bloomberg announces the city will be shut down by noon tomorrow. It sucks I am unable to go out to take photos of what I see in the streets and stores, I will be sharing what I’ve come across reading my emails, fashion magazines and fashion blogs.
