Little did I know that when I stepped out, two days ago, that the streets would be filled with gaggles of folks lining up happily, and donning funky glasses on their head, which were pointed to the sky!
Exclamations of wonder punctuated the otherwise normal Manhattan ambient noise.
I found myself wearing an intense coral-orange that mirrored the vibrant orange of the crescent moon, the part of the moon that was not eclipsed. Also my Lederer bag was the same orange, you will see below. So after I got some photos of the eclipse that I share below, my friend snapped some shots of me in the streets a bit later, after the happy crowds dispersed.
IT WAS A WINDY DAY. I LOVED HOW MY SKIRT, FROM NY AND CO., BLEW IN THE WIND, SHOWING THE PURPLE UNDER LAYER,. IT IS STILL AVAILABLE HERE , AND ON SALE. WITH THE PURPLE UNDERLAY, IT IS A NATURAL FOR LATE SUMMER AND FALL, TOO WITH BOOTS.
MY SHOT OF THE ECLIPSE IS NOT TOO IMPRESSIVE ON THIS PLATFORM, BUT WHEN I SAW I WAS THRILLED AS A CHILD!
