We have buttoned down the hatches getting ready for hurricane Sandy to hit New York today. Preparing for a tropical storm has become an annual tradition. We waited in lines at least 20 people deep at various stores in Brooklyn to make sure that we had enough food, water, fruit and vegetables to last us if we were to loose power. We even got to squeeze in a trip to the dog park, since our dog Mickey probably will not get the long walks that she loves if the winds really do get up to 70 miles per hour. I really hope this storm isn't as bad as they say it will be. It always scares me a bit when they close all mass transit.
Anyways, now back to fashion. I love a black leather dress. It is sophisticated and can be dressed-up or dressed-down. I love how in this look how she did the latter by layering a black tee underneath and added black ankle boots. I absolutely love the Rag & Bone boots I choose below - they are the perfect combination of bohemian glamour. Just add a trench coat and this is the perfect look to hit the town.
