Feathers make any outfit frivolous and fabulous!

Easy example is this DKNY skirt, add a white t-shirt, jean jacket and a pair of nude pumps – perfection.

Lela Rose’ feather embellished blouse is a perfect topper for the season, and works with anything to take it up a notch, even a pair of plain dark colored pants.

Lanvin’s gorgeous feathered riding hat makes me believe in all Christmas magic – pretty please Santa I have been the perfect combination of naught & nice!

Speaking of lovely feathery embossed Lanvin lovelies, take a looksie at this dress and it’s feathery trimmed swishiness!  Yes Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enough about me and my Santa list (ongoing in it’s development as it is), let’s focus on the feather adorning Elizabeth and James’ blazer.  Fa La La just got bumped by OOOH LALA!

O.W.O = One Weekend Outfit.

Went into Boston’s South End yesterday for a little promenade, lattes and a red velvet cupcake for the little dude (big siblings out at various play dates).

SE3

The THAW has officially begun, which in Boston means the snow begins to melt and the salt is still inches deep on the streets – do not wear the good boots out!

Now that winter is on the way out, reversecommuter is getting all reved up about Spring Collections and a big ol’ dose of retail therapy!!  Jonathan Simkhai’s quilted pony hair bomber from Fall ’13 reminded me of his incredible Spring Collection.  There really is no simple explanation of how reversecommuter’s mind works!  :)

SE6

Bought an awesome new cookbook on my walk – have to share as it is meatless Monday, and this cookbook is vegetarian deliciousness!  Click here to get it!

Usually the beginning of Lent means Spring has sprung.

Slightly sprung Spring at least by now….

reversecommuter is not known for patience – understatement!   Clearly drastic measures are necessary.

Coat off, bare legs, enough with the winter!

FXKN

Tall boots, pleated skirt = more versatile looks while winter takes it’s sweet time finishing up.

Suburban Kale

Sub Urban Riot is a so-Cal label that is getting a ton of press right now for their celeb favorite KALE sweatshirt.

Their Cali-Casual attitude is reflected in their line and their Downtown L.A. shop.  They instruct their customers to “Ditch the car, lose the big box retail, forget the suburbs…ride a bike.”  It is like music to reversecommuter’s ears!

Personally reversecommuter is digging the men’s collection, especially the RIOT zip up hoodie, the KALE sweatshirt and the KWay Fleece Jacket (hello old school!).  Click to “add to basket!”

Sweatshirts are the new hottest oldest thing to wear right now.  They have been aroundsince grade school but are enjoying a redefined moment as a fancy dress up item.  Who saw that coming?  Click here for that answer (hint…reversecommuter).

What is better than a versatile, patterned or phrased piece that adds an element of unexpected fun?  A piece that can be dressed up (add a blazer) or down (cut off jeans & flip flops after a day at the beach).  A piece under $50.  SAY WHAT??!?!!?!?

 

 

k6reversecommuter has a little surprise waiting for you – check in later today for a new posting related to Kale….

And The Winner Is…

Last night was a fun night in complete with hair up, glasses on, sitting in front of a fire in my fave Marni sweater, and reversecommuter building a spreadsheet, copying & pasting 146 names into little cells, printing, cutting and folding (must confess a glass of chardonnay was my assistant!), and a final draw occurred….

Congratulations Kendall Maggi, you are the winner and new owner of a pumpkin turban hat from The Third Piece!!!!   Ping me your 411 so I can send it to you!
