End of the week is THE best reason for bubbles in a flute!
Christie Brinkley is launching her own skin care line.
Christie is 60 years old, looks atleast 25 years younger and is an established successful business woman with not only modeling and Cover Girl on her resume but also perfume and costume jewelry. Her skin line, Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare will launch on HSN (brilliant move uber successful super model) and be distributed through Kohl’s in March 2015.
Tomas Maier and Diptyque have launched a collection of candles inspired by Palm Beach.
Gorgeous scents and pretty pretty palm trees combine on the black glass containers offering three scents, Old Mantauk Highway, Palm Beach and West District Road. Salt water, firs, wild iris, jasmine, lemon and lime are just some of the inspirations richly entwined in these candles. Happy to report reversecommuter has bought two of the three…need to leave something for Santa to put in my stocking!
Art Basel is December 4-7 in Miami. Fendi is already planning their pop-up shop,
Harper’s Bazaar is hosting a pop-up at the Soho Beach House (yummmaroooooo location!)

Can you feel the artsy fartsy fabulousness?!!?!?
Test drive your Art Basel outfits this weekend, hit a gallery and sip some more bubbles – it is the weekend after all!
O.W.O. (One Weekend Outfit) all about keeping warm but not too warm!
Vortex Schmortex. Weather radar had predicted a freezing cold weekend and didn’t deliver. reversecommuter was not disappointed, although running around prepping my little princess’ birthday party (complete with photo booth props that I clearly had to test drive!) kept me so busy I barely noticed the weather!
Shearling, fur and denim made for a perfect weekend outfit. Layering a long sleeve t-shirt with a boyfriend cut sweater under a cropped jacket can carry you through the day. J Crew has some great boyfriend sweaters at budget friendly prices – did you know that their cashmere sweaters are made with the same wool as Loro Piana? Psst – 25% off the regular price today with the code “SHOPNOW”.
O.W.O. (One Weekend Outfit) is all about the Fringe!
Fringe is in Cool Cats, and a little goes a long way.
This detail will make a party outfit FABULOUS…
Fringe makes a simple gorgeous Proenza Schouler’s PS1 something that NEEDS to be in the wardrobe…
Aquazurra’s fringed boots could make winter a favorite season. Seriously. And that is a VERY strong statement!
Click the pics to get your fringe on!!
BOOO!!! It’s Friday & Halloween!
Pharell has once again CRUSHED IT in regards to what everyone has attempted to do.
Adidas has launched the collection by Pharell and equality is the name of the game, and it is delivered in exquisite fashion.
Price points vary reflecting material choice, for example a satin jacket is considerably less than the leather version.

Diane von Furstenberg is hyping the wrap dress once again and this time in California. As a direct result of her IMMENSELY successful wrap dress exhibit in Los Angeles (click here for a refresher) she is going to open three new California boutiques. One shop will be dedicated to the wrap dress – such a fun cool concept!
reversecommuter ALWAYS grabs a DVF wrap dress when I have a “i-don’t-have-anything-to-wear moment of crisis!
Nike obliterates the competition with their technology and reverse commuter is the proud owner (and creator) of possibly THE SICKEST b-ball shoes ever thanks to NikeID.
Nike brand president Trevor Edwards has pushed the technology envelope since joining Nike in June 2012, and one of the company’s target areas is women.
reversecommuter is proud to be a willing victim – the technology on the website decimates anything else currently on the market and it is SO fun to use! Make your own here!
Pop the champs, get the costumes on and enjoy the ghouliest of Halloweens!
Wasn’t it just Monday? No Complaints here – Welcome to the Weekend!!!!!
Bottega Veneta knows a good thing when it has one, and it has for 13 years and counting!
Tomas Maier has been the (ridiculously handsome) creative director at the luxe leather weaver, as well as carrying his own line and boutiques.
Maier’s designs for his own label are all about classic form, streamlines and structure. Investing in his pieces is a wise play as there is very little trending about his clothing other than classic design.
Tomas has just opened a shop in NYC, to compliment his East Hampton and Palm Beach locations, and reversecommuter knows exactly where she is headed next New York jaunt!
Harvard Business Review just released it’s list of the Top 100 Performing CEO‘s, and retail has a huge positioning! Please keep in mind reversecommuter’s background is finance, so this merging of my two worlds (fashion & finance) makes me a little giddy!
Luxury fashion houses were not on the list at all but there were a few solid retail representations nonetheless.
Jeff Bezos, amazon.com’s leader is #1 / Japan’s Fast Retailing is #11(J Brand, Uniqlo, Theory are some of their better known lines) / TJX #51 (Maxxinistas everywhere rejoice!) / Nordstrom #54 / Macy’s #66 /Adidas #73 / Nike #76 / and closing up the rear in a most sparkly form, Tiffany #92. HBR’s list is a great read, hit the link to see for yourself!
Happy Weekend – raise that flute, enjoy the bubbles and wear something special just because!
reversecommuter is toying with the idea of boots. Denying the arrival of fall is useless, it is getting cold, feet need to be adorned in an assortment of leather loveliness. Still in complete, mad, deep love with my Celine boots but there is nothing wrong with adding a new pair or two this season.
Variety is key to happiness after all.
No collection is complete without a horse bit or two.
