Winter White Out

If you can’t beat ’em, turn it into a fashion statement!

Winter 2015 will go down in the record books.  Snow Snow and more Snow!

Getting sick of wearing dark blacks & greys?  Why not embrace the white stuff?

IMG_7455

Mix up the wardrobe and sport Winter White.  Who knows, it might work as reverse psychology and brighten things up!  Just be sure to add one colorful element – if nothing else, they will be able to find you in the snow!!

Fashion & Finance Friday

Greetings fabulous Friday!  Love it when you get here so quickly!

Louis Boston, only bastion of fashion in the city of Boston, just announced that after 85 years and three generations of Greenberg leadership, will close it’s doors July 2015.

reversecommuter is heart broken.

Debi Greenberg has an incredible eye for talent within the fashion world.  Boston was beyond lucky to have her store situated here, as were the customers – and yes, no huge surprise she is a bit of a fashion industry icon for reversecommuter!

deb

She single handedly broke the city’s reputation as being somewhat fashion challenged.  Whatever will up and coming talents do when hoping to find a buyer with a trained eye and natural instinct for incredible fashion?

psme

Just ask Jason Wu, Proenza Schouler and Jonathan Simkhai what Debi and Louis Boston did for their careers when first launching their lines.

Today is a really bleak day for Boston fashion.

What do Palm Beach and Minnesota have in common in April?  Certainly not weather.  Answer: Lily Pulitzer is partnering up with Target for a 250 piece collection of clothing and housewares, dropping April 19.

Would the grand lady of pink & green palm tree shifts be excited about this?  reverse commuter thinks not.

10 years and counting – adidas by Stella McCartney Spring 2015 will be a big gorgeous birthday of loveliness (yes, I am excited!).

Look at what this brilliant British rock royalty designer does to workout wear!

Start saving those pennies because the better the outfit the harder you workout – that is my purchasing excuse and please don’t try to put holes in it!  Click here on January 15th to get the new collection!

Get outside, ignore the weather and enjoy the weekend!  Winter boots, skinny jeans, thick turtleneck sweater and a camel coat – walk into your favorite brunch spot, order a flute of pink champagne and pretend it is summer!

Guccio Gucci (great-grandson of The Original Guccio Gucci, who founded Gucci) is under house arrest after being found guilty of fraudulent bankruptcy.  Guccio no longer works for the family firm (he left in 1989).   Rather he attempted to launch his own line of handbags, which didn’t work and he filed bankruptcy…and apparently syphoned the assets in an attempt to save a little money.  Not so buono Guccio.

Enjoy the last remnants of summer this weekend.  Champs o’clock!

The Forbidden Fruit

Fall 2013 reversecommuter was under self-imposed exile from the color grey.

Armani Grey Gorgeousness Fall 2014

I mean pahleeeze – how can one fashion obsessed blogger stay away from all this depth, richness, texture and blatant cashmereness?!?!?

_ON_0358.450x675

Celine Stylish ComfyWomfy Grey 2014

Could not wear it, buy it or even think about it.  Fall 2012 I kinda sorta went grey overboard.  Cold Turkey, self-instilled.

_ARC0537.450x675

Ralph Lauren Grey Goddessness Fall 2014

New year, new shopping lust list!  WHOOP WHOOP!

Row_012_1366.450x675

The Row Grey Blanket Coat & Dress Fall 2014

Clearly in Fall 2014 there is a severe risk of Overdosing on Grey Gorgeousness!!!

Proenza Schouler kindly designed reversecommuter’s new coat!!!! DROOL DROOL!!!

 

O.W.O. City/Beach Style

Ever been to a busy bustling city that has a sandy beach one block away from your hotel?

chi

reversecommuter is experiencing this strange phenomenon right now in Chicago…and liking it!

Perfect outfit to take you from surf & sand straight to shopping at THE coolest shop in Chitown?  Shan bikini, 100% Capri linen oversized shirt, Rag & Bone cut offs, Havaiana flip flops and a Panama hat to cover up the post-swim hair!

IKRAM is a women’s boutique, art gallery and restaurant all tied into one tidy luxe red ribbon of fantastic!

Exterior

Click here to peruse the boutique, and all the phenomenal designers that live there.

P.S. Completely addicted to the contents of this bottle.  Harmless Harvest’s Pink, raw, delicious coconut water (did you know it is better than sports drinks to replenish and rehydrate?).  Can you think of a better way to recover from the beach and strengthen up for shopping?!?!?
