Classy Classic

Classic is in!


That is the message delivered in New York this week by a majority of the presenting designers.


Proenza Schouler rejigged the double breasted blazer, opening their show with a sleeveless jacket wrapped up in a Pussy Galore meets the KFC Colonel’s skinny black bow tie.  Nothing represents classic fashion more than black and white.

Click here to watch the Proenza Schouler Spring 2016 show – it is a lesson in fashion magic.


The spectacularly sexy cool white designs found in Jonathan Simkhai’s Spring 2016 Collection should make every woman deliriously happy!  The cut and style flow and ooze with style.

This could get dangerous!!!!


Michael Kors is THE gentleman of classic clothing.  His Spring 2016 Collection is clean, forever fashion that glided across the runway and made buyers, editors and fashion lovers drool! The simplest design with the cleanest of lines in the very best of fabrics and colors.


Kors also brought out a bouquet of decadence in brocade floral pieces.  The richness in their design and material is beyond compare, and an investment in his clothing guarantees a healthy roi!

Budget wise Michael Kors also offers a lower priced line, Michael Michael Kors which is always influenced by his ready-to-wear designs.  So these fashions will easily translate into mall shopping!

Tomas Maier aka Mr. Miami, is all about linen, full skirts, maxi dresses, shirt dresses, pinks and reds.  Simple one piece dressing – perfection in ease  and style.

Now if we can all just ride out the 70’s vibe for Fall 2015…

Red White Blue & You!

Happy Almost July 4th Weekend!


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


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


(reversecommuter’s red Rosie Assoulin pants are from the Spring 2015 Collection)


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!!!!


Slap on a pair of pull-on sneakers with a fun ruffled red skirt and a white t-shirt by J Brand + Simone Rocha


Or a pair of stiletto sandals and a cutout crop top with a perfectly peachy flared midi skirt from Jonathan Simkhai


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.

Cut It Out!

Designers are slicing and dicing…


and the results are sexy, summery and spectacular!


Alexander Wang sliced up the back of his stretch crepe mini dress in perfect summer sky blue.


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!


Donna Karan New York’s cutout jersey top smacks of eighties’ roller skates and disco, updated perfectly for today.


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.


Everyone in celebrityland is wearing his and it is no wonder why!


Fashion & Finance Friday!

Springtime Weekends – potential patio openings, tulips a plenty & gorgeous outfits come out from beneath big winter coats!


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!


Today is the first day to pre-order your Apple Watch.  But it is backordered 4-6 weeks.

Good news is that the prices range from $349 to $10000, thus fitting every budget and with the backorder you have enough time to properly deliberate which style is right for you!


Net-a-porter and Chanel have teamed up for the very first time to launch Coco Crush, a collection of fine jewelry that will be available online at for a three week period.  Click here to sign up for shopping, and mark your calendars for April 15th.

Speaking of Chanel – and what prettier, quiltier, chain-strapped topic is there?  Chanel shoppers in China are very pleased with the price adjustments Chanel made on April 8th.  Click here to read more about this from an earlier post.


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!
