Shareen Mitchell of Shareen Vintage fame arrived at LAX yesterday trying to board a flight to New York, but was turned away because the power at the airport was out. Last night she posted to Facebook: "I went to LAX and found it completely dark. It was eery. A police officer suggested that I go home. He said.......'If you do not have to travel tonight, go home and relax.' I took his advice. I just feel so dumb because two hours later the power is back and my flight is on the runway."
