Fashion & Finance Friday!

Sunshine plus the end of the week = giddy fashion blogger!

DSquared2 (the beyond brilliant line by twin Canadian brothers Dan & Dean Caten) is about to open a store in the U.S., finally in my humble opinion, on Rodeo Drive.

reversecommuter has loved/obsessed over these designers since waaaaaaaay back to my very first job, retail shop girl for Ports International when Dan & Dean were the head designers.

DSquared2 presented their Spring 2015 show yesterday in Milan and it did not disappoint! They are mad geniuses (or is that genuii?) for denim – their jeans are the truest form of beauty that no other denim designer has ever touched.

Add to that their shoes, bags, hats, dresses, trenches, not to mention leather and this line is truly one to be VERY excited about.  Not to mention, all the models were sporting eyewear that matched the twins – adorbs!

Etro and Missoni presented at Milan Fashion Week today and reversecommuter is now dreaming in technicolor gorgeousness!

Even in Fall Collections both of these houses work in bright rich tones, a perfectly timed reminder to embrace the rainbow as we slowly enter the colder months.

Nothing makes black, grey and blue pop more than a hit of brilliance!

Stella does it again!  Stella McCartney presented her Green Carpet Collection, highlighting a sustainable evening capsule collection and it not only makes the world a better  place, it also for quicker heart rates amongst fashion lovers!

“The green carpet is the most sought-after validation in the fashion world for sustainability and excellence,” and this collection is so pretty it is easy to forget it is all eco too!  Like falling into a decadent bowl of highlighter bright sorbet!

In a time of mass production, copying and reproductions and disposable fashion, Stella McCartney has once again risen to the tippetytop of designers.  FAB FAB FAB!!!!!!!!

Celebrate that which makes you pop like a champagne cork this weekend – but do it in a Milan Fashion Week worthy outfit!

Floods!

High waisted, flared leg pants are the hot ticket this fall.  Big Puddles Beware, the wardrobe is ready for you.

Acne Studios reversecommuter.com

Sort of the perfect antidote to sosickofmyjeans-itis.  AND you can keep wearing your sandals with these for a few more weeks, (good rule is to put them away when you can’t feel your toes from the cold – you will know when this happens as you will probably make a dumb face like the one below…)

Paired with flats, white tank top, jean or leather jacket, and the day is already looking SO BRIGHT!

The Row reversecommuter.com

The Row has created the epitome of an everyday pair of flared cropped denim that would work at work or at play.

Veronica Beard’s carrying white into fall with these gorgeous creatures – how much fun would all the black in your closet have with these?

Fashion PS – If you are going to rock the high waisted flare, make sure you tuck or crop your top!

O.W.O. (One Weekend Outfit) “Scarfing It!”

Best creative addition to the wardrobe in early fall?  Un cravat. ( translation: a little neck scarf).

Adds a fun pop of color and fun flair to even the most basic of outfits – hello white t-shirt and ripped jeans, meet fancy scarf!

A little chill in the air but the sun is still blazing – so of course reversecommuter is going to squeeze a little more time out of the shorts season.  Top a pair of shorts and a t-shirt with a blazer and a scarf et voila!  Zippier than a Vespa!

Alexander Wang’s paisly ascot is a current fashion have, but Hermes is still the house of classic silk prints.

Excuse me, do you speak FASHIONWEEK?

Living the dream in the ‘burbs?  Up at 6am, down at 11pm, nonstop giggles filling the hours?

Desperate Housewife clinging to your style and love of fashion, yet as a “Real Housewife of SOMEBURB” you are uncomfortably friendly with your yoga pants?

Have no fear, reversecommuter is here to provide a quick translation of the New York Fashion Week Spring 2015 designs that are walking the runway up until Friday September 12.  Parlaying the fashions into ‘burbspeak, an everyday interpretation directly into your wardrobe!

Veronica_Beard_014_1366

Veronica Beard Spring 2015 reverse commuter.com

Wide leg culottes – buy them now.  Wear them now with sandals, flip flops or heels.  Parlay them into fall with ankle boots, brogues and a denim jacket.  Winterize them with boots.

The_Row_012_1366

The Row Spring 2015 reversecommuter.com

Navy Blue.  Classic, cool, rich, navy blue.  (full disclosure, this is reversecommuter’s all time fave color!!)  Invest in a great piece worthy of this color.  Think navy blue blazer (so good with ripped jeans, shorts and patterned pants).  Maybe a navy blue jumpsuit.  Something meaningful, significant and navy.

Cynthia_Rowley_015_1366

Cynthia Rowley Spring 2015 reversecommuter.com

Lace has invaded the runway in a Valentino pleasing manner!  Veronica Beard, Jonathan Simkhai, Oscar de la Renta, 3.1 Philip Lim, Cynthia Rowley and more, all offering gorgeous, light, airy, lace detailed pieces.

Rosie_Assoulin_005_1366

Rosie Assoulin Spring 2015  reversecommuter.com

 

Light blue.  Think robin’s egg and invest in it.  Rosie Assoulin and Jonathan Simkhai (who’s dress was inspired by broken glass shards), delivered my personal favorites.

Jonathan Simkhai Spring 2015 reversecommuter.com

Start lightly with a t-shirt or sweater, test drive the light blue color, fall in love deeply before a heavy investment.  This is a great color to break up the grey winter blahs!

 

 

 

O.W.O. Extending Summer

That “fall” feeling is in the morning air.

No need to run inside and plug in that sun lamp.

Just adjust the wardrobe to reflect the temperature.  Long sleeves with shorts, still warm enough for sandals.  Hold on tight to the last remnants of summer 2014!

Patent leather is huge for Fall 2014, so start incorporating it into your outfits now.

Sorry.  Late posting.  I blame the weather.

Jason Wu just presented a beyond-beautiful Spring 2015 Collection that was all about mules, navy blue *reversecommuter’s all-time-fave-color*, crisp whites, gorgeous tailored lines and rich suedes.

KIM_4874

Seemingly the perfect collection to launch on the day he announced he had sold a majority share to Interluxe.  CEO Gary Wasner has long been a Jason Wu fan, and the influx of cash will help him polish up his online business as well as build a flagship store.  Congratulations on a banner day!

Better pop the champs, raise the flute and smile for everything that makes you look taller, thinner and more fashionable!

Things Are Looking Up!

That was the view from the W Hotel Boston‘s rooftop.

reversecommuter had the pleasure of doing Tara Stiles‘ yoga class, on the ROOFTOP of the W Hotel Boston (cool right?!).

photo 2

You don’t even know cool until you take The Yoga Rebel’s yoga class, on the rooftop of the W Hotel in Boston, listening to funky tunes, bending your body into contortions and being a rooftop warrior while watching planes fly by, all the while drooling over Tara’s UBER fab striped pants & cow face pose tank which she designed for REEBOK.

reversecommuter was barely able to contain herself and not start online shopping on her iphone while on her yoga mat I was SO in love with this outfit -the pants sadly are not available, but the tank is mine!  OMMMMMMMM!
