It is hard to believe I was wearing this only 24 hours before Sandy’s devilish wrath hit Manhattan, and everyone was forced indoors to reside in sweatsuits with gallons of wine. At least that’s how I’ve spent the past 48 hours. Seriously, though, the storm was no joke. Luckily, Lola and I were able to seek shelter with a friend in Williamsburg, as it seems my neighborhood is still sans power, and apparently semi-flooded. Not fun.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was affected by the hurricane. So happy that the worst is over, and the city is in recovery mode. Stay safe and dry, y’all!

    I wish to show some thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from such a instance. As a result of browsing through the online world and obtaining thoughts that were not beneficial, I was thinking my life was gone. Living minus the strategies to the issues you’ve solved by means of your main review is a critical case, and the ones which could have badly affected my career if I hadn’t noticed your blog post. The competence and kindness in dealing with all the details was precious. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come across such a subject like this. It’s possible to at this time relish my future. Thanks for your time very much for this impressive and sensible guide. I won’t think twice to propose your blog post to anybody who wants and needs support on this subject matter.

    Love the combination of the neon dress with the chunky scarf and tan booties! I would probably look at this dress for special occasions only but love how you styled it here for a more casual day look!

    Who knew khaki and fluoro yellow could work? Such great styling!

    This outfit is SO fabulous!! Could you tell me the name of the PLV sunnies? They are the perfect shape I’ve been looking for! Your F&C clutch is gorgeous — does it wear well as a crossbody? I’m contemplating buying it for my new purse!

    Laura Reply:

    Thanks Courtney!! The PLV sunglasses are actually samples that unfortunately were never made. :(

    As for the F&C clutch, I have only worn it as a clutch but am sure it would be great either way!! Don’t you just love their bags?!

    I totally love those boots! Do you know if they still make them?
    I’m glad you & Lola are safe and sound. Keep dry, indeed!

    Laura Reply:

    Thanks, Bruna!! I got them over 2 years ago, but it may be worth searching around on eBay?! Good luck! xoxo

    So sorry to hear you had to evacuate the LES! We have some friends caught in similar positions who also sought refuge in Williamsburg. Hope Brooklyn is taking care of you, and here’s wishing your apt a speedy recovery!

    Glad you and your cutie of a dog are safe!
    Love this outfit! I have a Madewell dress that’s pretty much the same color and I’ve been trying to come up with an outfit or two to “winterize” it somewhat. I’ve toyed with pairing it with gray, but I’ll definitely try it with browns after seeing your outfit.

  22. Alba 31. Oct, 2012 at 12:53 pm #

    cool dress! I love the color!


  23. Lindsey Griffin 31. Oct, 2012 at 11:09 am #

    Thank you, Susie!! Yes, I was lucky to head over to Brooklyn before the power went out. It is amazing how so much of Manhattan is still dark…

    That bright green is awesome, and looks great with the darker brown tones! I love the pop of socks peeping out from under the booties, too.
