FLATIRON—Home goods store Fishs Eddy has set up a makeshift hurricane message board. Writer and Jezebel founder Anna Holmes tweeted the photo above. [@AnnaHolmes/Twitter]

SOHO—If you work for a high-end label and you've got a sample sale planned the week after a devastating hurricane, what do you do? It's a question as difficult as "Should we still have a marathon?" (Yes, because it's good for morale! No, because it uses too many resources!) and so far, it seems like clothing lines are splitting the difference. Alexander Wang is currently still on for Tuesday; watch this space for updates if the situation changes. As for Manolo Blahnik, which was also due to kick off next Tuesday, Madison Avenue Spy reports that it's been postponed. [Previously; Madison Avenue Spy]
