Futuristic Metalics are changing outerwear.
The fact that it resembles the delorean silver car in Back to the Future is the perfect reason to profile it on Back to the Future Day!
They don’t really.
This classic cream colored knit sweater needs to be added to your closet.
Or with ripped jeans and rain boots.
Or on top of your favorite dress with a pair of ankle boots.
Or with leggings (as long as your caboose is covered) and a pair of slip on sneakers in leopard pony hair (yummmmm).
Bell Bottom denim is THE investment for Fall 2015.
Add a little secret height with a great pair of boots or clogs if you think Bell Bottoms are only for the tall types. Isabel Marant Etoile Crisi boots even hide the heel for you shy ones :)
Stella McCartney naturally has THE best bells around. Must be the Beatle association that helped her create the most flattering 70’s cut available!
Level 99 has long been a brand reversecommuter has loved – I even tried to convince them to design a maternity jean for my boutique in another life! Anywho…Level 99’s Evelyn Gaucho is beyond adorable and could be the funnest piece of fall denim available! Picture them with adidas Stan’s or strappy sandals or ankle boots and a simple t-shirt.
MOTHER Denim’s high waisted cruiser is in a wash MOTHER calls ‘bushwhacked’ and that is just what you will be if you don’t invest in a pair of these!
Wondering what to do with your distressed jeans…
Springtime Weekends – potential patio openings, tulips a plenty & gorgeous outfits come out from beneath big winter coats!
Coachella isn’t just about music, fashion is coming to the dessert in a BIG way! CFDA will be present for the first time, and reverse commuter favorite designer Jonathan Simkhai (also a member of the CFDA) will be playing int he dessert too. H&M, PopSugar and Trina Turk will also be at the festival.
Coachella, which started in 1999, has evolved into a fashion statement as much as a music festival, so it really does make perfect sense for the fashion world to start paying attention! Click here to see what a Coachella Mama wears!
Today is the first day to pre-order your Apple Watch. But it is backordered 4-6 weeks.
Good news is that the prices range from $349 to $10000, thus fitting every budget and with the backorder you have enough time to properly deliberate which style is right for you!
Net-a-porter and Chanel have teamed up for the very first time to launch Coco Crush, a collection of fine jewelry that will be available online at net-a-porter.com for a three week period. Click here to sign up for shopping, and mark your calendars for April 15th.
Speaking of Chanel – and what prettier, quiltier, chain-strapped topic is there? Chanel shoppers in China are very pleased with the price adjustments Chanel made on April 8th. Click here to read more about this from an earlier post.
A 20% price drop is WAY significant and it might just seem like Chanel is having a sale in Shanghai today!
Enjoy the weekend – go get a pedicure and wear those fabulous strappy shoes (that have been buried in the back of the closet all winter), while sipping champs on a patio!
reversecommuter spent Easter in Paris and as a result I have come to conclusion that French women love their lingerie. Like really love their lingerie. As I am quite sure the French men do as well ;) Maybe even like lingerie more than les patisseries (bakery).
It is truly everywhere in Paris. Walking about the Parisian streets one is suddenly in possession of a burning desire to buy MANY lacy, frilly pieces of lingerie in a great variety of colors and styles. A neutral t-shirt bra did not make the shopping list AT ALL!
Printemps is a gorgeous, huge, designer stocked department store that has dedicated an entire floor just to frilly bits. Beautiful, florals, bright hot pinks, seductive blacks, lacy, racy, frilly, sexy, sumptuous lingerie.
Aubade is one of reversecommuter’s favorite lingerie lines, and whenever I am in Europe I try to stock up due to better selection and price. Their trademark lace up design is trés coquette (very flirty).
La Perla is another crowd pleaser that held major real estate in the Printemps store. DROOLWORTHY lingerie.
La Perla’s Everyday Essentials is a new line, softer pricing and ridiculously soft cotton. reversecommuter has numerous pairs of the drawstring pants and tanks – makes for great post bubble bath hangout wear, comfy with a subtle side of sexy (and less than a pair of yoga pants).
There is also Princess Tam Tam, which has stand alone stores plus is in Printemps. Great selection and even better prices.
Sort of a sexier version of Victoria’s Secret, imagine that!
So here is a golden nugget of knowledge. Lingerie makes the outfit. It reminds you that you are STILL the sexy little vixen you were before becoming a mother, a chauffeur, a cook, a laundress and a nose wiper extraordinaire. So take a moment to tour the links littered throughout this post, and treat yourself (and the one you love) to a quick Parisian update to your wardrobe.
