After a two-month semi-sabbatical [as I like to have named it], I was looking forward to today.  Having stayed away from my daily blogging on all things [affordably] fashionable, I had planned to begin again this week, now that the East to West Coast move is behind me, and all things have semi-settled into routine.  However, with Hurricane Sandy now one week behind us, here comes the learnings of the financial and emotional devastation left in its wake.  Of course New York is near and dear to my heart.  A born and bred New Yorker, my family still lives in the state, with my sister in the city.  Along with all my friends. And really, all the people in my life I care about.  I am so lucky that no one I know was affected too badly by the storm.  Sure, my sister lost power for a week, and my boyfriend's parents had three trees fall on their property, narrowly missing their house, but I am so lucky to say all is safe and sound within my own network.  Unfortunately, not everyone can say so.  Which is why this week, my blog is 100 percent devoted to Hurricane Sandy.  I urge you to make a fashionable donation to a charitable clean up cause such as the American Red CrossMy heart goes out to all those along the Jersey Shore, Staten Island and all those other coastal towns where people lost everything.  If New Yorkers [and Jerseyians?] are known for anything, it's their resilience!

The Red Cross has provided more than 23,000 overnight shelter stays since Saturday to those communities in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast suffering from widespread power outages, wind damage and significant flooding from Superstorm Sandy. Financial donations help the Red Cross provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by disasters like Hurricane Sandy, as well as countless crises at home and around the world.  Please donate today.
