Irene

WISH blouse; Current/Elliott jeans; Marc Jacobs rainboots; Vintage necklace; Burberry sunglasses

Hey East Coast-ers, how are you guys doing after Hurricane Irene? Manhattan managed to get by with very little damage, but I know other places got it much worse than us. I hope you're all ok!

I took these pictures on Sunday afternoon when we were still getting giant gusts of wind from the hurricane. It was pretty intense down on the Hudson River, the waves were bigger than I've ever seen them! There was also a few tree branches that had fallen down, but all-in-all the Upper West Side escaped pretty much unscathed. The question now is, what am I going to do with all of these flashlights and gallons of water I've stockpiled?

I also want to draw your attention to the shirt I'm wearing - it's the Sevier Blouse from WISH's summer collection titled
"Smokey Shadows". WISH is an Australian brand that has been around for 10 years, but only recently came to the US. If you're like me and you love beautifully designed bohemian pieces, be sure to check out the WISH website!

YAYYY!!! I love Wish!! Being an Aussie shopper I have quite a few samples in my wardrobe. With Aussie Youth fashion going the way it has lately I starve to find something i adore but Wish always pulls through!

Gorgouse top and I love the necklace. Irene was indeed a scare, but I made it out without a drip or leak.

Have a great weekend!
