Ding Dong Bell Bottoms

Bell Bottom denim is THE investment for Fall 2015.

Add a little secret height with a great pair of boots or clogs if you think Bell Bottoms are only for the tall types.  Isabel Marant Etoile Crisi boots even hide the heel for you shy ones :)

Stella McCartney naturally has THE best bells around.  Must be the Beatle association that helped her create the most flattering 70’s cut available!

Level 99 has long been a brand reversecommuter has loved – I even tried to convince them to design a maternity jean for my boutique in another life!  Anywho…Level 99’s Evelyn Gaucho is beyond adorable and could be the funnest piece of fall denim available! Picture them with adidas Stan’s or strappy sandals or ankle boots and a simple t-shirt.

MOTHER Denim’s high waisted cruiser is in a wash MOTHER calls ‘bushwhacked’ and that is just what you will be if you don’t invest in a pair of these!

Wondering what to do with your distressed jeans…

  

Boatload of Bikinis!

Living on a boat for a week demands a fairly specific suitcase.

MARELLA - Aft Deck

Bikinis.

That is all.

But a serious selection so as to avoid repetition.

Shan is reversecommuter’s absolute favorite, as has been demonstrated on numerous occasions!

Australia’s Triangl is set to hit $60 MILLION in sales this year.  Not too shabby for a newly engaged couple who started the neoprene bikini biz after their second date!

Triangl bikinis are only about $90 US and come in a neon rainbow of styles and colors!

Marysia Swim is a new line on reversecommuter’s bikini radar.  Scalloped details and brilliant styling make this designer someone to watch!

Marysia Swim’s founder,  Marysia Dobrzanska Reeves is also a surfer so it is safe to assume that her designs will stay on in the water!

E. I. E. I. Woah!

Summer dressing just got a lot easier!

Overalls + whatever you want underneath!

IMG_9481

Bikini, tank top, white t-shirt, flip flops, strappy heels, clogs…Mix it up!

MOTHER denim total drop out overalls (reversecommuter has been obsessing over these) the perfect wash, just the right amount of distressed denim and the perfect boyfriend cut capri combo.

Not to mention how much fun it will be to style these with suede and fringe in the fall!

Time to embrace that salt lick as a Sunny Summer Season Trophy!

Grab a chopstick – adorned or free with the delivery food – twist your hair and stab that sucker right in!

Hair clip a la J Crew?  Don’t mind if I do!

Perfect twisted bun holder for a bike ride or anything else a fantastically fun summer day requires.

Nothing better than a ponytail whipping around in the wind of an open car window!

Hairbands.  Put on and go.  End of story.

seriously – end of story.

Mom Speak Fashion Translation

Versace’s Fall Couture 2015 was etheral.  The best dressed rockstar fairies ever!

Chanel’s Fall 2015 Couture was terrifically tweedy and fantastically luxe.

But what exactly are moms’ supposed to wear to go pick raspberries?

We deal with runny noses, messy love filled hugs and toppled ice cream cone sticky kisses.  Donatella and Karl don’t really design for these.

reversecommuter adores high end fashion, and loves translating it into everyday speak.  Fashion is fun, not intimidating.  Fall Couture’s message thus far is a softer color palate and a more classic take on clothes.  But it is summer now, so brighten up your outfits with some color and a smile!  Slap on a pair of silk shorts and a tank top, grab a cute pair of sandals and a floppy hat and work that runway of life like nobody’s business!

Red White Blue & You!

Happy Almost July 4th Weekend!

IMG_9208

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!).

K1016-O_large

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!!!!!!!

Sales Put the GLAD in Gladiator!

Gisele rocks them. stuart_weitzman_spring_campaign_a_l

They are on sale (finally). SALE_PLP_BANNER_6.29_50

Secretly I have been coveting these Stuart Weitzman gladiator sandals for a couple of months.  Despite the fact that I live in Boston, a city where summer, aka sandal season, is only a few weeks long.

IMG_9196

Nothing like a happy ending!  #gottalovesaleseason IMG_9195

ps they are SUPER comfy!!!!
