Fashion & Finance Friday!

Friday always feels SO good!

Remember the post about Hudson’s Bay Co. offering an IPO? (click the blue to revisit). Well, it launched on Monday up in Toronto and sold over 21.5 Million shares at $16.80. KA-CHING!!!!!!!!!!

Neiman Marcus announced their profits are up 2.5% in Q1. That number will surely shoot up after December 1st – that is when the 50 LEGENDARY gifts created by 24 of the hottest designers launch at Target.

This is the inaugural combined collection shared between Neiman Marcus and Target. Some of the pieces are TRES ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (click the blue & see that it’s true!)

Happy Happy Weekend – it is officially the Holiday Season so drink champs & dress up!

Bad Behavior

Nothing to see here Mr Art Gallery Security Guard…

Took the bambinos to the ICA for a little cultural infusion, (The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston – click the blue to go to the ICA website).

Nice View!

Never miss an opportunity to be the cheese…

This marble bench, an installation at the ICA, says it all.

Sitting Pretty


With a chair.

A chair named “The Blogger” found at Roche Bobois, made of beyond delicious leather in the happy happy yellow color.  (click the blue phrase to visit Roche Bobois’ website – be prepared to drool!!)

As if that wasn’t enough, check out the new Roche Bobois video -TOOFRICKINCOOL!!!!!

Prada pants & sweater, Hermes belt, Car Shoe boots.

Biker Chic

Jacket choices are key this time of year – finding fashion and staying warm!

Such a great investment. Classic, fun and seriously unexpected!

The key to happiness is to aim for Biker Chic, as opposed to Biker Chick.

Biker jacket Barbara Bui, Mother jeans, Ralph Lauren sweater, Balenciaga boots, YSL bag.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am grateful for my family & friends.
And by friends I most definitely include reversecommuter followers – Thank You!

Between all the preparations, baking, chopping, cooking, parade watching, champs drinking, family & friends time, reversecommuter hopes to find a smidge of time to hunt down the elusive perfect black riding boot.
