Now go cheer on that baseball /  soccer / lacrosse game Super Mom…but don’t forget the SPF – only the clothes are snake like, not your skin!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Spring has Sprung, and so has the weekend!

reversecommuter’s jaw has hit the floor!  Jeff Bezos’ Amazon has set it’s fashion goal WAY high with news this week that Amazon might be trying to buy net-a-porter.  THAT IS RIGHT, amazon is trying to BUY net-a-porter.com!

img-jeff-bezos-met-gala-2012_160846316382.jpg_carousel_parties

The deal has Natalie Massenet’s website of fashion deliciousness valued at 2 BILLION euros.

ob-jq887_magazi_g_20100823114840

Massenet chased her dream to be the ultimate online luxury fashion site starting in her apartment (the luscious net-a-porter packaging was stored in her London flat’s bathtub!), and twelve years later sold the company to luxury goods group Richemont for 390 MILLION euros in 2010.

If this deal goes through, Jeff Bezos will truly earn his title as visionary within the business world.  First books, now luxury fashion, online all the time.  Mr. Bezos, reversecommuter is a little bit in awe.

Planning on a little cooking this weekend?  Why not take a recipe from the brand spanking new Bergdorf Goodman cookbook?

51Ft9DGieaL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_

Berdorf’s released the cookbook this week and the food ideas are nearly as scrumptious as a visit to the second floor shoe boutique – trust me, it is THE closest thing to heaven!

IMG_2288

The recipes include a ton of yummy cocktail ideas (WHOOP WHOOP!),

PoolsideMargarita_v1-350x424

loads of salads – ladies who lunch on the 7th floor of Bergdorf’s LIVE for salads, salivate-worthy fish and meat entrees and desserts that include butterscotch brownies – I mean COME ON!!!!!!!!!

Salmon_v1-350x423

Needless to say, you can buy it on Amazon for a mere $25.

Put the boots in the back of the closet, slip into the strappy sandals and pop the champs – it’s Friday!!!!!!

Clogged

One thing with fabulous fashion trends and styles is that they eventually repeat.

AA2X0120

Clogs are back this Spring with a solid wooden-heeled thunk!

IMG_7690

Marc Jacobs clogged up his Spring 2015 runway with color coordinated Dr. Scholl-esque shoes that are SO cute…ranging in price between $2000 – $2300, and selling out fast as per NYC boutique!

AA2X0208

Gold, Military Green, Navy Blue (obviously reversecommuter is SUPER happy about that!), velvet, satin twill and suede – take your pick and stomp all over town owning that wooden statement!

504296_e1_xl

Gucci has a heeled version with all the stomping power needed to get through the day.

IMG_7696

Bits, leather and wood – yummy…and $850.  Worth the investment – reverse commuter bought a pair of Gucci clogs in the late nineties (I KNOW!!!!) and they are still every bit as gorgeous now!

Dr. Scholl (as in the original clog meister) still delivers a collection in plain and stripes!

3098417-p-MULTIVIEW-1

Super duper delightful and budget loving at a modest $55 – seriously.

Whatever your spending limit, run like a little Dutch girl to pick up a pair of wooden clogs for Spring 2015!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

First day of Spring and it falls on a Friday!  WHOOOP!!!!!!!!!!  

(reversecommuter will not even comment on the fact that it will snow here in Boston later this evening…)

Cavalli trumps Pucci – it is ON in Italy!  Roberto Cavalli announced this week that Peter Dundas will return to the casa de Cavalli after a hiatus from the house of animal-print-body-hugging-plunging-cleavage designs, where he worked between 2002 through 2005.

CAV_0105

Dundas was the creative director of Pucci from 2008 through to this February’s Milan Fashion Week.

_MON0010

Pucci moved quickly to report that MSGM’s Massimo Giorgetti will be Dundas’ replacement.

CAV_0945

“Dramma” – that is drama in Italiano!

“Pavement Cracker” Kanye has done it yet again, and Choupette is pissed!  Kanye West X Adidas out clicked Chanel and any other collection during the fashion weeks, the closest second was Chanel by 1 MILLION!!!!!!!!

klagerfeld_choupette_v_20dec12_pr_b_426x639

Naturally the Yezzy Boosts are all sold out.

adidas-yeezy-boost-detailed-images-1

Should be interesting to see what happens to the rest of the ahem…collection.  If you cannot fight the urge to purchase, Barney’s just announced they will be carrying all the yeeziness!

01_Yeezy_season1

Put that black turtleneck in the very back of your closet, pull out the brilliantly bright stilettos and celebrate the end of winter with a click of your heels and a clink of your champagne flute!

Boyfriend’s Back

The boyfriend cut is BIG this spring!

Distressed, sloppy, sexy jeans – nothing better.  J Brand’s distressed Sonny is reversecommuter’s current LIVE IN choice.

IMG_7589

Dress it up with heels and a silk top or down with a t-shirt and a leather biker jacket and ankle boots.  Once it really warms up this style of jean BEGS for a tank tops and flip flops – perfect patio wear.  Acne’s POP Light Vintage screams summer nights – why not start warming up now?

Want to cheat on your boyfriend (jeans)?  MOTHER Denim’s The Overall Dropout (best name ever!!!!) allows you this extra curricular item.
