After 4 weeks of vacation (#spoilt) reversecommuter is back…
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.
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!
I have decided that I want to live inside a Dolce & Gabbana ad for a few days.
In a seaside Italian village.
With an extended family of strictly gorgeous people.
In a continuous rotation of flower laden, richly embroidered, body flattering, lace embellished clothing and bags.
Ideally during the summer months as I think my Dolce & Gabbana ad fantasy would totally stink if it was snowing and I couldn’t feel my toes.
Actually there is so very little difference between reverecommuter’s everyday life and my imaginary Dolce & Gabbana ad life…
Every single favorite retailer of reversecommuter’s is on sale!
Decided if I am going to blow the budget for the month, why not spread the love?
We can collectively look gorgeous in all our new purchases, while hiding from our husbands until the credit cards stop smoking!
Someone needs to bring bubbles or rosè or tequila…
Why are you still reading this (although obviously I totally appreciate it)? Start clicking the pics and get your retail therapy on!
Sunshine, Derby Juleps and the Weekend! Trifecta!
Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) has been printing fashion news daily since 1905. Until April 24, 2015 that is. WWD has now morphed into a weekly publication that launched Wednesday April 29th. To celebrate this HUGE publication, WWD Weekly dropped SIX different covers with some extremely fascinating fashion stars!
THE MOST beautiful picture of Alexander Wang gracing one cover,
The Olsen Twins (aka The Row) on another cover,
Proenza Schouler gorgeousness on another cover,
Scottish designer Christopher Kane,
Sacai’s Chitose Abe and
J.W. Anderson (with possibly THE best profile picture ever).
#WWDWeekly has caused quite the murmur amongst those in the fashion world who start each day with an expresso and a read of the daily. Fret not Fashion Pets, there is a new digital daily edition that will be emailed to existing subscribers, and now there is yet another reason to celebrate Hump Day as that is when the weekly will come out!
Lucky Magazine (*full disclosure – reversecommuter is a contributor) has announced that their social media maven of an editor, Eva Chen, has announced she will be leaving the magazine. There is also an unconfirmed rumor that the magazine will be going completely digital!
As a result of the editor and possibly editorial changes at Lucky Magazine, the upcoming May 7th Lucky FABB bloggers conference is postponed – bummer as reversecommuter had just booked a equally FAB hotel room at the W and was planning outfits…
File under Fun Fact: Did you know that John Paul DeJoria (handsome dark haired owner of Paul Mitchell hair products) is also the owner of Patron Tequila? His annual income of 2.8 BILLION is a testimony to an awe inspiring drive – he started Paul Mitchell with a $700 loan.
reversecommuter not only loves the smell of Paul Mitchell’s awapuhi shampoo (seriously, give it a whiff) but I am officially obsessed with the work ethic of this man – I have a new hero!
Enjoy the weekend – slip those perfectly pedicured piggies into something open toed and raise your silver julep cup to all the drop-dead hats and outfits at the Kentucky Derby!
Designers are slicing and dicing…
and the results are sexy, summery and spectacular!
Alexander Wang sliced up the back of his stretch crepe mini dress in perfect summer sky blue.
Stella McCartney got her hands on a pair of scissors and snipped up a cotton ribbed-knit dress in a champagne yellow that begs for a heatwave, but is so simplistically perfect reverscommuter would wear it now!
Donna Karan New York’s cutout jersey top smacks of eighties’ roller skates and disco, updated perfectly for today.
Jonathan Simkhai’s Spring 2015 Collection shatters the definition of cool with pieces that combine skillfully designed clothes with clever textures perforated, cutout and resembling shards of shattered glass.
Everyone in celebrityland is wearing his and it is no wonder why!
