Snow Love Set!

There is a winter weather advisory posted for reversecommuter’s suburb.  Champs anyone?  Bubbles really are the absolute perfect answer to any question or situation!

Naturally that triggered an intense online retail therapy session, for tennis gear!

M34397_21_hover_modelYup, sleet and snow and freezing cold temps cannot stifle a fashion addict’s love of sport and sportswear!  How is that for a warm-up jacket?  Putting a real slice into the wardrobe!

My current obsession is anything adidas by Stella McCartney creates.   Sporty, functional, unique and creative in design = “in basket”!!!   These tennis shorts offer the flair of a traditional skirt with the flexibility and sportiness of shorts – stellar offering Stella!

This dress was worn out at the U.S. Open, looks super cute on a multitude of body types and comes in earth hues that flatter every skin tone – like I said, “IN BASKET!!!!”

Monreal London is a tennis line created by a fashion industry warrior, and is a line that reversecommuter is in absolute LOVE with (isn’t the tennis lingo SUPER fun to throw into sentences?).

The sticker shock is real but the design and fabric selection is truly divine!

Look at that jacket and skirt combo – that would absolutely have a positive impact on my serve!!!!!

Pheel is another workout clothing label that would bring MAJOR PIZZAZZ to the court or the gym!  Speaking of snow and exercise and fabulous clothes – Leopard leggings would be THE cutest snow shoveling outfit ever…..

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!

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!

Pinks, reds, rich leather, vibrant pulsating floral patterns, cool textured stockings and big buttoned coats that beg for an Easter basket!  The makeup is exceptionally delicious in this campaign, think pink baby girl cheeks and doe like eyelashes that go on for ever.

 

Levi’s just announced it is laying off 500 employees.  So Weird considering there are denim designers enjoying huge success selling reformatted men’s Levi’s 501 jeans to women.

RE/DUN out of Los Angeles is the leader of this pack and the jeans are phenomenal!

The back pocket of these jeans have a light outline of a wallet impression – kind of a fun story to share on the next GNO (girls’ night out)!

26RS1014B_grande

RE/DUN limits the size of each campaign, currently it was 100 pairs, and there are only a few left online, a testimony to the fit, wash and design of these green jeans.  Cool Cool Cool!

Pop the champs, apply the pink blush, glue on the eyelashes, slip into the dress and walk glamorously in those heels – the holidays are coming and it is time to dress up just because!
