Leather for Christmas…

Or at least for Day 4 of reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Parties (or Holiday Parties = whichever floats your festive boat)

Could it be any easier than  a leather dress?   Miu Miu has just the pièce de résistance! Add heels, clutch and beware the mistletoe!

A leather top, adorned with a peplum waist or open back can be the perfect topping to your Party Outfit tree!   Veronica Beard’s leather top even delivers a surprising lace back detail.

Leather pants complimented with a stunner of a blazer (think back to Day 3’s tuxedos) make a mommy outfit a YUMMY MUMMY outfit!  Acne Studios does things to leather that most fashionistas simply dream of touching…

 

Fly Me to the Moon

2nd day of reversecommuter’s 12 days of Outfits for Christmas Parties / Holiday Parties (whichever floats your seasonal boat), is dedicated to plumage.

Feathers make any outfit frivolous and fabulous!

Easy example is this DKNY skirt, add a white t-shirt, jean jacket and a pair of nude pumps – perfection.

Lela Rose’ feather embellished blouse is a perfect topper for the season, and works with anything to take it up a notch, even a pair of plain dark colored pants.

Lanvin’s gorgeous feathered riding hat makes me believe in all Christmas magic – pretty please Santa I have been the perfect combination of naught & nice!

Speaking of lovely feathery embossed Lanvin lovelies, take a looksie at this dress and it’s feathery trimmed swishiness!  Yes Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Elizabeth-and-James-Feather-Trimmed-Crepe-Blazer

Enough about me and my Santa list (ongoing in it’s development as it is), let’s focus on the feather adorning Elizabeth and James’ blazer.  Fa La La just got bumped by OOOH LALA!

Lest we forget the original site of ostrich feathered adornment, get a load of Sophia Webster’s ostrich sandals – purrrrrrrrrrrrr or whatever an ostrich says.

Blushing Bubbles POP!

And now it begins – reversecommuter’s 12 days of Outfits for Christmas Parties / Holiday Parties (whichever floats your seasonal boat)

Day One is focused on all things pink.  Because reversecommuter loves a good blush.  This is a phenomenal color to work over the holidaze as it is soft, subtle and is an actual flavor of champs!

Cut-It-Out!  This Philosophy piece deserves a place in your closet.  Wear it now, covet it always.  This will never ever ever go out of style and every single time you put it on you will sparkle and tinkle and look like a goddess.  Not to mention your daughter will count the days down until she can borrow it!

Suit.  DKNY rocks that double entendre like nobody’s business.  This would look ba-NAN-nas with a simple tank or a sexy little cami.  The investment would carry on looooooong after the holidaze as ANY blazer + jeans +t-shirt = perfect solution to whatshouldIwear?

Skirt.  Gucci Gucci Goo delivers THE perfect pink skirt.  Buy now, rock those body hugging curves at all your office parties then wear it forever with a comfy comfy pair of slip on fat sole sneakers, a cropped jean jacket and a simple tank top.  Crazy how easy it is!

Ah please…your making me blush!

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…..

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!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

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!
