The Ones that ALMOST Got Away

Salesperson at Barney’s almost didn’t sell me these…

despite my LOVE for all things YSL,  she thought they were too small for me.

Luckily reversecommuter can be VERY persuasive – especially when it comes to shoes and clothes that I really really really want – like these Rebecca Taylor pinstripe pants & MuuBaa leather t-shirt (click the blue to shop away!)

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Nothing in the world better than a sunny, blue skied Friday!

Unless you are the CEO of J C Penny, then George Soros buying 7.9% of the beaten up retailer totally trumps the sunshine!  George’s investment caused an impressive 7% increase in J C Penny’s stock price last night – Joe Fresh I am sure was doing a happy dance too!  Click here for more on J C Penny.

Unknown-2

Louis Boston’s leader extraordinaire Murray Pearlstein passed away this week.  Prior to the UBER talented Debi Greenberg leading the helm, it was her father that truly built Louis Boston into the iconic fashion retailer it is today (click here to read about reversecommuter’s girl & style crush).  Here is Debi with Jason Wu – by the way, he recognizes her as one of the first real breaks he got in fashion!

Murray was the second generation to run Louis Boston, but he was a trailblazer who dictated how fashion and retail should be.  He went to Italy, he worked with designers, he had designers work for him in house (Joseph Aboud for example) and Debi grew up under an exceptional eye for fashion.   Boston is grateful, as is the fashion world.

 

 

Doctor’s Orders

I am truly lucky.  Only injury as a result of the Boston Marathon (click here for more) is a neuroma on my foot (aka really angry nerves as a result of a lot of miles).  Needless to say, my heart goes out to all of those affected.

All in My Head

I am in search of the perfect white shirt.

DSC_0112

Not too structured, no lycra, no detail, just a plain, crisp white shirt.   I have a few in my closet, a variety of styles and price points, everything from DVF, Calypso to Fendi and Dolce & Gabana.  And you can click here to see a bunch at net-a-porter.com…but it’s still not THE one I am dreaming of.

It’ll be just perfect with washed out boyfriend denim, flip flops and a little gold jewelry…..

Small Window Flash!

Trench coats allow a small mercy…

get a great coat and you look FAB!  Even when racing for the school bus, running behind schedule and wrapped up with a dog’s leash.

Jeans, t-shirt, ballet flats or heels and an amazing trench…

Ba-Da-Bing!   But only until the warm weather arrives, then the outfit needs to count just a little more.
