Keep On Trucking!

Maybe it is because of the serious case of Beach Brain reversecommuter is currently enjoying.

Maybe it’s because of the seriously bad case of Beach Wave Messiness currently located on the top of my head.  YEESH!

FYI this Quicksilver hat has fringe - I mean REALLY??!?!?  HOW exactly did I live without this?  Truth be told my son bought this in a surf shop…and mama took it over pronto!

Maybe it is just because reversecommuter LOVES a good hat.  Really, reversecommuter loves any fashion item that compliments and makes life easy.  Easy as in throw it on and go!  This ROXY number is super duper cute and has a drop down hot pink mesh visor.

When was the last time you spent $30 or less and scored a happy addition to the wardrobe and protecting your skin from the sun?  Truck On!

O.W.O. Beach Buggy Bliss

Summer simplicity.

Sundress, flip flops, sunglasses, sun kissed.  Happiness.  Done and Done.  James Perse is the master of cotton dress deliciousness.  Well worth the investment as his dresses last – just keep them out of the dreaded dryer!  Not to mention mommy friendly fashion – wake up, shower, put on sundress, GO!

carid

James Perse online is currently hosting a sample sale – CLICK HERE!!!!!  Not only can you stock up on sundressses, you also start to plan your attack on Fall 2014.  Apologies on mentioning the impending cooler weather.   Now back to the beach and P.S. is that yellow beach buggy not just THE BEST??!?!?!?

O.W.O. & Summer Hours…

School’s out for summer!

reversecommuter is about to clock some MAJOR Mama hours, so blog posts will be Monday Wednesday and Friday until the banditos are back in school…this shot may very well be the last time I am sitting until September.  But at least my summer uniform is SHAN!  (Click here to revisit the absolute adoration reversecommuter has for this swimwear designer.)

OWO

…unless of course I find myself BURSTING to post about some little bit of fashion that has me completely obsessed!  As in the super amazing trend at Pitti Uomo of terry cloth blazers – can that please translate over for women please?

Now imagine how perfect the world would be with a combination of a SHAN bikini and a terry cloth blazer – who needs a towel?  Straight from the beach to dinner!  (admit it, you were thinking it too…)

Sandal Overload!

Indecisiveness is not necessarily a bad trait to have…

p4

Saks Fifth Avenue’s ridiculously helpful Locator service went a little bit crazy in the search for my sandals (which I almost returned after a friend of mine was wearing the same ones at a party this past weekend – THE HORROR!!!!!!!!!!!)

p3

Imagine my surprise when Saks Locator sent me an email announcing they had found my size in both the blue and the tan!  Decisions Decisions…

p2

It gets worse…Saks also found them in black for me.

Fashion & Fitness Friday!

Happy Dance Friday!!!!!!!!!!

Tom Ford is frowning.  Or at least he could if he wants to.  The newly married daddy has decided to stop getting Botox and fillers and just age naturally, and he is blaming it on his son and the lack of time in his schedule now that he is a dad.  Yet another reason reverse commuter LOVES Tom Ford!!!  (see reversecommuter’s original Top 10 here)

Tom received the lifetime award at the CFDA awards on June 2nd.  And as everyone knows, Rihanna showed up in a completely transparent dress.

Diane Von Furstenberg - Runway - Spring 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Diane von Furstenberg really loves Google Glass.  She first unveiled the über-cool optics on her runway during the DVF Spring 2013 show.

ob-jq887_magazi_g_20100823114840

DVF Made for Glass collection will launch on June 23 on Natalie Massenet’s net-a-porter.com and Porter.com for the men’s collection.  The goal is to deliver wearable tech to the fashion and technology advanced clientele.  Wearable tech is an area that industrial and fashion companies are extremely focused on, and Google Glass is truly the groundbreaker.

 

Glasses will be $1725 and sunglasses will be $1620, and please note that this is a limited collection!

 

bikinis and champs is the order for the weekend – enjoy!!!!!!

O.W.O.

Work Work Work…

OWO1

staining the teak furniture in the backyard really builds up a thirst!  YAY iced coffee!  YAY awesome family for working so hard!

OWO2

Equipment shorts are almost as amazing as their shirts.  Comfy, cool and cute – the three Cs!  Clearly qualifies as O.W.O.

Happy Monday!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Friday, you freakin’ rock!

Tom Ford is launching fancy schmancy sneakers for Fall 2014 – sign me up!  Sending a message that the current sporting line obsession of the fashion industry is still going strong.  Prices range from $690 to $990, for sneaks that have been hand made in Italian workshops, where the leather is hand polished for three days for the deep patina.  If cost is a concern for these norm core creations, go for the velvet low tops with the modest $690 price tag.

reversecommuter LOVES all things Tom Ford (click here to revisit the love), and wonders when the women’s sneaks will be unveiled…and for how much.

DIOR Secret Garden Part 3 has returned to the intoxicatingly beautiful Palais de Versailles.  I love these videos, shot by wonder duo Inez and Vinoodh.

The bags, the dresses, the shoes, Depeche Mode still singing and OBVIOUSLY the palace and grounds - c’est règal pour les jeux!  reversecommuter is loving the tease Dior has put up on Instagram:

If possible drink pink bubbles while wearing pink at some point this weekend – it’s good to have goals!

Playing Doctor

Spring arrived with a resounding heat wave!

ST2Which apparently means one last round of stomach flu chez reversecommuter.

ST5

So fashion blogger/doctor/mama is working full time healing the little one.

ST8

No need pulling out the designer duds on a day that really calls for a hazmat suit…

ST3

Bring on the head to toe J. Crew.

ST6

Accessorized with Peter Pan collar, Celine espadrilles, Gucci bag and a toy stethoscope naturally!

ST1

 

Burn My Jeans!

Holy Cr*p that was a ‘challenging‘ winter!

pj3

Now that the great golden orb has resurfaced (aka the sun), it is all about prints, colors, and fun clothes.

pj1

Not jeans.  Done and Done with denim.

pj5

Pajama pants are a great option to mix it up.   Equipment has some gorgeous silk options, Kirna Zabete has fantasy worthy options from Prabal Gurung and Peter Pilotto – swooooooon!

White Stuff

Here we snow again… while I run around groc shopping and filing my home with exotic fresh flowers (my answer to yet another snow storm)…

Why not ooooh and aaaaaah about some gorgeous white stuff – like this shirt dress with an exposed back from Rosie Assoulin, a designer reversecommuter is mildly obsessed with.  What Rosie does with material is deconstructed magic!  Click here to buy it now on ModaOperandi.com (speaking of reversecommuter obsessions….)

Alexander McQueen has another drool worthy dress on net-a-porter.com that definitely has a spot inside my fantasy shopping cart!

One selection for the shopping cart of reality is the Abby dress from Club Monaco

Obviously Jonathan Simkhai’s eyelet dress – which interestingly is in both shopping carts with an amazing design and equally friendly price!
