Nothing But Hurricane Talk on Twitter

With Labor Day and Fashion Week just days away, Hurricane Irene barreling up the coast has thrown a giant wrench into final summer plans and, of course, show prep. Here, fashion peeps on Twitter share their thoughts, to-do lists, and survival plans (lots of booze, obvs)…


@OscarPRGirl
I wish I had over the knee wellies with a heel

@MarcJacobsIntl
Don’t forget to stock up on the essentials – bread, water, MJ umbrellas & rainbows! Come on Irene!

@Ladyfag
Thank god for the hurricane; I didn’t really know what I was going to do with the year supply of vodka I have stored under my bed.

@PRConsulting
There won’t be any NYC public transit, but will WorldNet still be delivering? #fashionproblems #hurricaneirene

@COACD
Call ur dealer! #todolist

@jadabird
Reminded of blackout, when NYMag staff walked down 13 flights w only Joanna Coles’ $90 Carolina Herrera scented candle to guide us #irene

@dkny
Dear Grace, if Resort look 40 is not on your rack by Monday am, please call #Irene. Thank you, DKNY PR GIRL

@BarneysNY
My weekend (hurricane) plans: Hot cream mani & chocolate pedi @BlissSpa, online shopping @BarneysNY & a delightful dinner on the town…

@refinery29
Overheard: “What are you doing for the hurricane?” “Ryan Reynolds.”

@Peter_Som
C’mon Irene! Good excuse for a baking weekend. Carb time!

@MilkStudios
We stocked up all of our whiskey bottles and beer kegs in Milk Digital’s whiskey bar. We are officially prepped for a hurricane.

@JLJablonski
Guess #Irene isn’t going to let me move into my apt this weekend. Escaping the city.. Heading home to Jerzzz

@Krupp_Cake
Survival kit: @makersmark, eyeliner and @popchips

@PaulWilmotComm
Spending last Summer Friday hightailing it out of NYC.  #Irene #thanksbutnothanks

@FACTORYPR
Overheard in the office: “Are you sure we don’t still have those life vests in storage?” #Irene #hurricane

@MichaelKors
How do they come up with the names of these hurricanes?

@MarianoVivanco
Eco friendly, battery free flashlight and new panini machine! We are set!!!

@naagofficial
Go to karaoke this weekend – there’s plenty of windowless rooms to hide out in.

@AnnabelTollman
Egg whites and spinach is a rather un-delicious start to the day. A poor excuse for breakfast especially if it is your last before the Hurricane

@Bergdorfs
Oh grand. @target has water. No flashlights but there are LED-candles. Told the pr girls to take our @NEST_Fragrances stash… #irene

@Equipment_FR
Looking forward to getting through the #hurricane with Kate Moss (aka just bought the giant September issue of @voguemagazine)

@vmagazine
NYC! before your zone gets flooded into oblivion, check out waterworks of a different sort in Beyonce’s new video.

@narcisostudio
#hurricane irene is a blowhard. She is really putting a dent into the show prep this weekend.
