Post-Sandy Retail Update: More Stores Open; Alex Wang and Nicolas Ghesquière Shopped Barneys Yesterday

It's day two of Sandy's aftermath and the picture of how this disaster is impacting retail and the industry is becoming a little clearer (though, power outages and transportation problems will continue to complicate things at least through the week). A lengthy report in today's WWD details Sandy's effect thus far as well as updates from the city's biggest retailers. Read on for a rundown.

How is this worse than past natural disasters?

This storm "stretched over 900 miles, impacted about a third of the U.S. population and lasted longer than most storms," WWD reports. Plus there are the 8 million power outages and lack of transportation options.

In other fashion-related Sandy news, dogs and cats dressed up real cute to weather Sandy and its after-effects; the Village Halloween Parade has been cancelled, so no opportunity to show off your fashiony costume/get trampled by drunk people; and the sun is coming out so you can wear cute sunglasses.

How are you doing post-Sandy? We hope you're all safe and sound!
