Fancy Flip Flops

Running across the pool deck to stop the five year old from jumping in fully clothed for the 8th time today – no problem, no slipping, and still styling.  RHEA’s fancy flip flops. IMG_8562 Booting it across the gravel driveway before your daughter wipes out on her skateboard ramp?  Fear not superhero mama, RHEA has your back with their patented micro channel treads.  Cool to look at and even more cool knowing you won’t wipeout wearing these. IMG_8564 RHEA was founded by Cornell students who were slipping and sliding all over Ithaca New York – have you been there?  It is really cold, wet and slippery up there! 31a6c2627a0a26f7eb0dee03ec1caa8c_original Microtread Griptech soles are what make RHEA flip flops so unbelievably fantastic – you cannot slip on these.  RHEA is named after the Greek Goddess of Comfort, and they are cute too!  The scientific technology that is built into the soles and treads are what make them fancy, not to mention the rainbow assortment of sole colors options. IMG_8565 Brilliant yellow, gorgeous black and gold, spumoni green, patent white, single or double strap – whatever outfit you are trying to compliment RHEA flip flops have it.  The really great thing about buying a pair of RHEA flip flops right now is that you are supporting this start-up AND saving some money!  The shoes are available exclusively on Kickstarter.com.  Go shop and stop wiping out! IMG_8563 **full disclosure – please note that reversecommuter received a sample pair of RHEA flip flops but was not paid for this review, nor for the numerous times worn since!**

Seriously, what else would be the end result with these on your feet?!?!?!  (parrot not included)

Buttery suedes, sexy silhouettes, exciting, unique colors and ridiculously fabulous names…

Wild-Thing-105-Poppy-Red

allow me to properly introduce you to the “WILD THING”.  Currently sold out but the Florence, Italy based designer told me next week a new shipment arrives at Matchesfashion.com.  Run, don’t walk and get yours!

In The Navy

Spring is weird.

One minute it is sunny and warmish, the next minute the sky is bleakly grey and the wind is  cruel.  How exactly does one dress successfully for that insanity?!

IMG_8036

Answer: the navy blue blazer.  Classic and ridiculously versatile!

03171_BL8133

T-shirt, jeans and slip on jeans, culottes and stillettos, cigarette pants and kitten heels + navy blazer = perfect Spring outfit options!

Price points are just as varied, from $3190 for Saint Laurent’s wool gaberdine gorgeousness to a sweet $138 deal at J Crew.

reversecommuter invested in a Ralph Lauren Collection blazer a few years ago and it was worth every single penny!  A classic fine tailored piece will last for almost ever, and every single time it is worn it makes me smile.

T1042B Peaked Lapel Blazer

Smythe (a Canandian jacket designer) offers up a multitude of styles and interpretations of the navy blazer every single season.  LOVE!

 Theory has a clever take on the classic this Spring.  Rag & Bone’s genius blazer design stuns and introduces fun elements such as piping and gorgeous big buttons.

The navy blazer is the ultimate unknown element piece that makes for the perfect airplane item, warm enough for the inevitable airplane air conditioning arctic blast (WHY do they do that?!?!?) and yet is warm enough to not melt you en route to your oceanfront hotel!

Obviously Veronica Beard’s dickey blazer would be THE ultimate piece for this journey – just zip off the dickey before the plane lands!

Sunshine & Scales

Animal prints, a basic addition to any wardrobe.  Why not bring out the animal instinct with the Sunshine?

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!!!!!!
