Ding Dong Bell Bottoms

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…

  

Sarong SO Right!

  
The next time you find yourself longingly stroking a scarf or sarong

  
thinking that yet another purchase would be “so wrong” (tee hee)

 
think lovingly of THE easiest, chicest beach outfit option, and swipe that credit card like a boss! 

T-shirt, espadrilles or flip flops and GO Beach Baby GO!

  

Mom Speak Fashion Translation

Versace’s Fall Couture 2015 was etheral.  The best dressed rockstar fairies ever!

Chanel’s Fall 2015 Couture was terrifically tweedy and fantastically luxe.

But what exactly are moms’ supposed to wear to go pick raspberries?

We deal with runny noses, messy love filled hugs and toppled ice cream cone sticky kisses.  Donatella and Karl don’t really design for these.

reversecommuter adores high end fashion, and loves translating it into everyday speak.  Fashion is fun, not intimidating.  Fall Couture’s message thus far is a softer color palate and a more classic take on clothes.  But it is summer now, so brighten up your outfits with some color and a smile!  Slap on a pair of silk shorts and a tank top, grab a cute pair of sandals and a floppy hat and work that runway of life like nobody’s business!

Sales Put the GLAD in Gladiator!

Gisele rocks them. stuart_weitzman_spring_campaign_a_l

They are on sale (finally). SALE_PLP_BANNER_6.29_50

Secretly I have been coveting these Stuart Weitzman gladiator sandals for a couple of months.  Despite the fact that I live in Boston, a city where summer, aka sandal season, is only a few weeks long.

Nothing like a happy ending!  #gottalovesaleseason IMG_9195

ps they are SUPER comfy!!!!

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!

La Dolce Gabbana Vita

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…
