Holding the phone a little too far away from your face?  Tired of contact lens early morning eye pokes?

How about updating your look with a new pair of designer glasses?


Tom Ford is my current obsession.


Totally asking Santa for Cèline’s tortoise shell round frames…oh yes, THE list is already being prepped!


Earlier this year in Italy I came across Micromega, “the most exclusive eyewear in the world”.

The designs are extraordinarily unique, and their prices are clearly living up to the description!   The first picture shows a pair for 1070 euros, and the ones below are a cool 840 euros.   A visit to the website is highly recommended, the creations are so incredibly artistic!
A new pair of designer specs is a faster fix on your total look that a great fitting pair of jeans (yup, going there in an upcoming post…)

Classy Classic

Classic is in!


That is the message delivered in New York this week by a majority of the presenting designers.


Proenza Schouler rejigged the double breasted blazer, opening their show with a sleeveless jacket wrapped up in a Pussy Galore meets the KFC Colonel’s skinny black bow tie.  Nothing represents classic fashion more than black and white.

Click here to watch the Proenza Schouler Spring 2016 show – it is a lesson in fashion magic.


The spectacularly sexy cool white designs found in Jonathan Simkhai’s Spring 2016 Collection should make every woman deliriously happy!  The cut and style flow and ooze with style.

This could get dangerous!!!!


Michael Kors is THE gentleman of classic clothing.  His Spring 2016 Collection is clean, forever fashion that glided across the runway and made buyers, editors and fashion lovers drool! The simplest design with the cleanest of lines in the very best of fabrics and colors.


Kors also brought out a bouquet of decadence in brocade floral pieces.  The richness in their design and material is beyond compare, and an investment in his clothing guarantees a healthy roi!

Budget wise Michael Kors also offers a lower priced line, Michael Michael Kors which is always influenced by his ready-to-wear designs.  So these fashions will easily translate into mall shopping!

Tomas Maier aka Mr. Miami, is all about linen, full skirts, maxi dresses, shirt dresses, pinks and reds.  Simple one piece dressing – perfection in ease  and style.

Now if we can all just ride out the 70’s vibe for Fall 2015…

NYFW a la ‘burbs

There was a pity party happening in the suburbs. 
Fashion blogger and style editor couldn’t go to NYFW. Too many commitments in my other role as a mom. 
Luckily Vogue.com, instagram and the grooviest online fashion feeds allow me the super human combination of being super mama and fashion obsessed blogger all in a day’s work!

Truly all my technological fashion feeds are in direct thanks to Christopher Bailey, the CEO and design director of Burberry.


Christopher changed fashion forever when he permitted a live feed of his fashion show in February 2010.  Before this landmark event fashion shows were strictly for buyers and editors and certainly NOT for suburban moms!


The greatest luxury is being able to watch live video feeds of the shows (hello phenomenal new playlists!!!), translate the fashions into suburban mom-speak and write posts for the blog, news sites and magazine, all while running the corporation of home, husband and children!

This was Alexander Wang’s gift to his New York audience, along with his return to street wear FIERCE collection, British rapper Lady Leshurr.


Seriously add it to your workout playlist NOW!

Other designers tapped it back in the form of nineties artists, Willie Nelson and of course using the appropriately titled “begging for threads” tee hee!

Tune in tomorrow for a posting dedicated to the simplicity of Spring 2016 Fashion.  Imagine that!

Fortuna for Us!

Fortuna is the Roman Goddess of luck, and is the inspiration for Diane von Furstenberg’s Spring 2016 Collection just unveiled at NYFW.


This was the first painting Diane ever bought, it hangs in her bedroom and represents freedom, nature, beauty and individuality, and luckily for us brought forth this dazzling collection.


The Spring 2016 DVF Collection delivered bright colors (hot pinks, turquoise, white, gold, navy blues, cherry pinks and golden yellows), textures and tassels a plenty and flowing goddess worthy dresses, crop pants and jumpsuits.


The greatest part of DVF is the woman herself.


She inspires greatness, she delivers beautifully crafted clothing that is approachable in price and her sexy effortless pieces are easily wearable in everyday life.


Move over Fortuna, there is a new goddess in town and her initials are DVF!

Jet Lag Plan

After 4 weeks of vacation (#spoilt) reversecommuter is back…

armed with THE best plan to combat jet lag!

Olive You Man!

As in “I Love You Man”, as in “I Love You Rick Owens, and your olive and earth tone clothes!”


California dude relocated to Italy and built an incredibly sexy line of arguably the most sensual body hugging clothing.


Look at this top – seriously, how could you not want to completely envelope yourself in this?


Rick Owens single handedly redefined the biker jacket.  reversecommuter is lucky enough to own a brown leather one…


but clearly the suede version is quite delicious and perhaps needs to find it’s way to my closet.


Not to mention those crazygood wedge boots that are oh-so-obsession-worthy (trust me on this, two years in and still absolutely on my mind as fall 2015 potential ankle wedges…)


The Rick Owen creation is limitless in life span and (here comes the fabulous part…) a Rick Owens piece is an easy peasy addition that makes an outfit.  Gorgeous clothing that doesn’t need directions.  What. Is. Better. Than. That.?  Nada.


Girl Crush with a side of Ruffles!

Rosie Assoulin is my designer girl crush.


reversecommuter has coveted from afar her designs, her creativity and her crazy cool ruffles since she launched her line in 2014.


The 2015 CFDA WINNER earned her fashion wings under such designer legends as Oscar de la Renta and Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz.


Are you beginning to appreciate the master level of the ruffled wonder?


Brilliant colors, cuts that flow and billow, pants that beg for a surfboard while simultaneously sashaying down a runway.  The elements Rosie incorporates into her clothing illustrates her ease in identifying the women who she designs for – moms, wives, professionals, busy whatevers with complicated lives who LOVE fashion.


Rosie’s bff is none other than Leandra Medine, übererest of all über fashion bloggers.  Leandra wears Rosie beautifully, by incorporating the high end line into low priced pieces from her closet.


reversecommuter is willing to share a teeny tiny fraction of Rosie’s wonderfulness with you.  Invest in a piece or two or twelve and be confident knowing your Rosie will look fantabulous now, next year and the years after that!
