The price you pay for trying to be fashionable following a Thunder Blizzard


Of all the wonderful photos I've seen from this week's snowstorm, this is my favorite. So much to take in... It's the work of Lindsay Wengler via her website — Single Linds Reflex. (Reprinted with permission!)

Agreed, WB.I love the store across the way selling UGGs and other boots...And I'm going to start the rumor that this is Anna Wintour. Actually, I should change the headline to Anna Wintour has fallen on hard times.

like Walter Matthau said: "now, it's garbage"

NYers seem to think weather doesn't apply to them - and for the taxi to work to bar to home crowd, it really doesn't. Lots of people wearing still sneakers, but some people can't afford 2 pairs of shoes I sadly realize.

Such a fabulous shot - EVG what would we do without your snow coverage this Winter?

There are still a lot of workplaces where women have to wear heels. She looks less like a fashionista and more like she's dressed for a strict corporate dress code. I know a handful of people who hate doing the sneaker/heel juggling act all day, so they just stick with heels.

No, Sarah. Only an idiot would choose vanity over wearing boots/protective footwear in a storm such as this. It's simple enough to change at the office. Wearing heels in this dangerous ice/snow puts her OWN safety in jeopardy, maybe you don't get that.

@Anon 9:54 - agreed. It's just stupid to walk around in the ice and snow in high heels. I cringe just looking at this photo - she's not wearing a coat either!
