So a few days ago we were notified that hurricane “Sandy” would be hitting NYC. About one day ago we were told that this hurricane would be hitting us BAD. So whilst most people yesterday, in New York were running around frantic, getting essentials such as: flashlights, eggs, milk, and water etc. My boyfriend and I were out strolling Madison Avenue, buying some clothes, and falling in love with shoes (ok, that part was me) but they were flawless to say the least! After our little shopping spree, we then nonchalantly sat in the “library” at the Regency hotel, went for lunch at Serafina, and then went into Godiva. Which may or may not have been the end of my skinny jeans.

Once finally returning to the island, I was informed that my building does not have a generator, and that everyone should stock up on flashlights and emergency supplies. Thank you doorman, for this notification less than 24 hours before a HURRICANE HITS. At this point its 9 pm, raining, windy and HORRID outside. I’m about to slap my boyfriend for dragging me to Loro Piana, and Brunello Cucinelli earlier on in the day, and venting that instead of strolling down Madison Avenue, we should have been at Home Depot, and Whole Foods preparing. Probably like the rest of the tri state area.

So now our emergency supplies consist of left over food in the pantry such as: Special k, Strawberry Poptarts, frozen Rolos, Pretzal m&m’s, Grapes, Carrots….and thats about it. To last us however long as sandy decides to stay.

Long story short: Never disesteem when a hurricane is headed your way, and if you want your skinny jeans to fit..avoid going into Godiva.
