Earthquake

Earthquake 3{Blouse: Thrifted; Midi-Skirt: Thrifted; Belt: Love Brigade; Cuff: H&M; Heels: Target}

I’m alive!  No need to worry about me!  Yes, we experienced an earthquake yesterday and no, it wasn’t that bad.

I was at my office working on a project when my desk started rumbling.  I had thought it was an 18 wheeler truck passing by, which is not uncommon considering I work in an industrial area.  Then I noticed it was taking the truck a really long time to pass!  Didn’t take long for me to realize I was actually experiencing an earthquake.  Our cubicle walls were shaking and framed photos shaking all over the place.

Myself and the rest of our staff all ran outside while everything was still shaking, and then before we knew it, it was over.  Before my west coast buddies say anything, I’ll let you know I know now you’re supposed to take cover under a desk or something and not run outside.  We very rarely ever have any type of earthquakes over here, so I’m very thankful that it was a minor one considering no one here knew the best procedures for during one.  Hopefully we’re all a bit more educated about what to and not to do.

So this is what I wore during the great NYC earthquake of 2011.  Practically everything is finds from my recent “fall thrifting” trip this past weekend.  I really scored on a lot of awesome stuff, I’m stoked.

Did anyone else experience the earthquake here in the Northeast?  What were you doing during it?

      Thank you! I wasn’t sure about the blue belt initially but now know I made a good choice based on everyone’s comments, haha! It’s a great example of how personal style blogging can help you in your fashion choices 🙂
