I decided to celebrate early to give you a last minute chance to overnight a cute outfit for the loooooong weekend.

Look+04+Rosie+Assoulin+R16

RED is for Rosie.  Rosie Assoulin’s red for Resort 2016 is available now at Moda Operandi and practically begs for sparklers!

White belongs to Jonathan Simkhai (the SIGH is silent in his name but OHSO there in his clothes!).

His white cutout oxford dress is the perfect piece to take you from picnic to pier to fireworks!

Blue is all about ALC’s Santo Sleeveless Dress.  Can’t you just see yourself zipping around the corners in your antique convertible, scarf tied hair, racing to get to the party?!  Classic elegance and ease wrapped up in a sale price!

Raise the champs flute to the Red White and Blue, and while you are at it, celebrate you!!!!!!!

A Nice Bit of Skirt

Skirts are a girl’s best friend once the snow melts.

Easy to pair with a simple t-shirt during the day, especially when the skirt is Yigal Azrouel’s print jersey skirt with an embellished waist.

Add a sexy spaghetti strap top for evening.  How insane is this Dolce & Gabbana printed brocade midi skirt?!  MAMA MIA!!!!

Skirts are the perfect Spring piece – fun, flirty, swingy and sexy!  Stella McCartney’s Jordan skirt delivers all four adjectives with a side of bias cut.

ps did you know the word “skirt” is slang for a girl?  How absolutely perfect is that?

Dress Me Dolly

Mother’s Day is only 5 more sleeps!  Girls it is time to plan your Brunch outfit.

Mother’s Day Brunch means getting everyone else clean, dressed and wrestling the boys into the dreaded blazer!  Doesn’t leave a lot of time for preening and primping.

Solution – the dress.  One piece.  Pull it on over your head and go.  This is good.  Here are a few front runners in reversecommuter’s humble opinion.  Click the pic to buy it.

Stella McCartney got her hands on a pair of scissors and snipped up a cotton ribbed-knit dress in a champagne yellow that begs for a heatwave, but is so simplistically perfect reverscommuter would wear it now!

Jonathan Simkhai’s Spring 2015 Collection shatters the definition of cool with pieces that combine skillfully designed clothes with clever textures perforated, cutout and resembling shards of shattered glass.

Coachella isn’t just about music, fashion is coming to the dessert in a BIG way!  CFDA will be present for the first time, and reverse commuter favorite designer Jonathan Simkhai (also a member of the CFDA) will be playing int he dessert too.  H&M, PopSugar and Trina Turk will also be at the festival.

Coachella, which started in 1999, has evolved into a fashion statement as much as a music festival, so it really does make perfect sense for the fashion world to start paying attention! Click here to see what a Coachella Mama wears!

A 20% price drop is WAY significant and it might just seem like Chanel is having a sale in Shanghai today!

Enjoy the weekend – go get a pedicure and wear those fabulous strappy shoes (that have been buried in the back of the closet all winter), while sipping champs on a patio!

Colorfully Cold!

What a difference 24 hours makes.   #understatement

Beach and palm trees one day, snow drifts taller than me the next.  OLE!

oleBest way to beat the winter blahs is to continue the brilliant hues of the tropics.    House of Holland’s brilliant purple jersey sweatshirt begs for a drink with an umbrella in it:

Wear a sweater to keep warm but brighten up the outfit with Jonathan Simkhai’s multicolor sweater,delivering a hint of blue sky no matter what is going on outside!

Better than an extra large dose of vitamin D (although reversecommuter highly recommends that as well!).
