Holding the phone a little too far away from your face?  Tired of contact lens early morning eye pokes?

How about updating your look with a new pair of designer glasses?


Tom Ford is my current obsession.


Totally asking Santa for Cèline’s tortoise shell round frames…oh yes, THE list is already being prepped!


Earlier this year in Italy I came across Micromega, “the most exclusive eyewear in the world”.

The designs are extraordinarily unique, and their prices are clearly living up to the description!   The first picture shows a pair for 1070 euros, and the ones below are a cool 840 euros.   A visit to the website is highly recommended, the creations are so incredibly artistic!
A new pair of designer specs is a faster fix on your total look that a great fitting pair of jeans (yup, going there in an upcoming post…)

Back to the Future Jacket

Futuristic Metalics are changing outerwear.

Outerwear needs to be warm.  Obviously.  But why not add a little color, texture or shine?

adidas by Stella McCartney has a fun metallic crop jacket that is ridiculously warm and efficient as a wind breaker.  Safe to say my hair speaks to the wind factor.


Click here to buy the jacket on net-a-porter.com

The fact that it resembles the delorean silver car in Back to the Future is the perfect reason to profile it on Back to the Future Day!

Sleeveless Wonder!

Fall is one crazy season!

 Jacket, no jacket, layers, stripping off the layers, OY!

Invest in a sleeveless vest.

Put a tank top underneath.  Pair it with a long sleeved t-shirt.  Add a thin cashmere layer. A tailored shirt works too.
Jeans, leggings, even a tailored knee length skirt works with this piece.  Add a pair of statement boots and vamanos mamacita!


Budget friendly options available if your name isn’t Amal Clooney or Gwyneth Paltrow.  Current faves include Trouvè at Nordstroms for $78 and  ASOS for $72.

Who Needs Sleeves?!?!

Bergdorfs Meets Lycra in the Burbs

Bergdorf’s in the burbs?  Dare to dream!


First thought that popped into my head when I experienced LEGIT activewear, an online and retail boutique in Wellesley, MA, a suburb just west of Boston.

reversecommuter has been upfront honest about my dislike of the unimaginative yoga pants suburban mom uniform.  Legit is here to change it up.

Owner Lisa Goldberg (warning, she will instantly seem like your super fab sophisticated city girlfriend) single handedly tracks down the most intriguing design lines that will shake the lulu lemons right out of their tree!

LEGIT activewear is like the legitimizer of workout clothing.  Designer clothing for actual workouts…it is like the directions on how to wear lycra are found right in the name of the store.  Take what you worked out in off after the activity, but feel free to wear the gorgeous jackets, outerwear, cashmere, etc all day long.

Tennis lines such as Monreal London and Adidas by Stella McCartney, brilliant colors and the necessary tennis white all included.

Banging out those pre-marathon miles just got a whole lot sexier.  Leggings from Lucas High, Michi, Charli Cohen with mesh, neon, ribbing, cutouts, seriously these are the clothes that make you jump out of bed and want to hit the pavement!

Spinning class outfits just got so real you are going to ask them to keep the lights on so your outfit gets appropriate admiration time.  Snakeskin prints by Human Performance Engineering, and Ultracor’s Camo crops and leggings with a shock of brilliant yellow neon beg for a SoulCycle diva showdown extra long class!

Yoginis rejoice!  More Spritual Gangster than you thought possible and Out Incorporated’s mesh side leggings will make the most stylish zen bendy in town!

Pheel blends lycra with metaliics to deliver a superhero feel to any workout, and let’s face it, carving out time to workout is a superhero feat with our schedules ladies!

Cool down jackets and wraps from lines such as Nesh, Vimmia and Alala will make it imperative to run a couple of errands after your workout, too luxurious a statement not to make.

See you at the checkout line…or is that the now Chic-out line?

Brogue Nation

A Rogue Nation is defined as a renegade state.

Try to find a more renegade state than suburban moms!  United in a lack of sleep, an overflow of mommy guilt, an excess of baby bragging capabilities (irregardless of the child’s age), and a daily challenge to find the perfect uniform that works while running, chasing, laundry, cooking, cleaning, dodging body fluids and still managing to look hot.  woah. 

Suburban moms, it is time to celebrate and WHOOP it up!  Brogues are THE shoe for Fall 2015. 

Flat.  Leather. Comfortable. Stylish. Cute. Work with jeans, shorts, leather pants, skirts, whatever.  Dress them up or down.  Just wear them.


As an added bonus brogues allow you to wear those super duper silly adorable itty bitty no-see-um socks.  Seriously, the inventor of those babies needs to win some sort of serious award.

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.
