Inspiring NOT Stealing.

When I go get these done…

It’s Essie Tour de Finance.

Anywho, when I find myself stuck at the spa I notice that I actually take the time to see the details in a magazine.  Which leads me to adding to this little pile of ripped bits of inspiration.  Kinda like a hardcopy Pinterest board.

It isn’t stealing if it inspires me right?

ps I find that a decent fake cough almost completely covers up the ripping noise.  Just saying.

Blazers & Blossoms

Spring brings blossoms and blazers.

There is nothing in the world like a good blazer.  It compliments any outfit and hides a multitude of sins!

B2

It is the perfect piece to add to jeans and a t-shirt.  It is the perfect date night piece to wear over a slinky-spaghetti-strapped-this-date-is-promising kind of top.  It is the perfect piece to wear when traveling (not too hot/not too cold).

Classic navy and black basic blazers have some fun company this season.  Brilliant pinks, stripes, florals and metallics.  Click on the pics to go directly to the source!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Benvenuto Friday!!!!!  WHOOP WHOOP WEEKEND!!!!

Oooh La La! Quel dommage!  Luxury brands are being robbed in a tres grand manner!  Chanel, Celine and Dior’s Parisian boutiques have all been victims of robbery this week.  The bandits drove a stolen Audi into the front window of the Chanel boutique and stole approximately 25 bags.  The Dior boutique was robbed in the early hours of Wednesday morning and lost over $100,000 worth of inventory.

Have you played with the PORTER Magazine app yet?  It is dangerously fun!!!!!  Download the net-a-porter app (free) and then in the settings hit the Scan PORTER Magazine option. Then the real fun begins – scan the pages, hit the “concierge” option that pops up and shop your happy little heart out!  layAR technology is powering the interactive print technology and flipping through a magazine is never going to be the same.

This has been keeping reversecommuter quite busy while recovering from the Boston Marathon this week (apparently so much so that I need to charge my phone!!)  Theraputic retail therapy – LOVE!!!

Slap on something pretty, make an effort to feel pretty and believe it all weekend!

Goldilocks and the 3 White Jeans

ah, my ubiquitous search for the perfect white jeans…reversecommuter has been giving these near impossible perfect white jeans considerable thought.  (see how my eyes are shut – serious concentration level!)

First up was Rag & Bone as my love for their jeans is a proven, long lasting denim affair (click here for proof)

Rag & Bone Skinny whites

Alas Rag & Bone’s skinny white jeans offered up for Spring 2014 had too much lycra, not enough denim.

MOTHER denim white jeans are super pretty and reversecommuter LOVES MOTHER!!!!!!!!!! Seriously there are a like a kazillion postings to prove it so click here or here or here).  Unfortunately I cannot find a retailer that sells the patchie in mirror mirror (uh hello, cuter names only found on OPI bottles!!), so alas I will reserve my too-hot-too-cold-just-yummy-oatmeal-metaphor comment for these lovelies!

AG white capri rollups

Never one known for her patience (understatement), reversecommuter bought a pair of AG stilt rollup white jeans that are just right!  As a rule of thumb reversecommuter ALWAYS buys up a size in white jeans because as unattractive as camel toe is, white jean camel toe is just that much more FUGLY!

MULE-ing It Over…

reversecommuter is resting & recovering her tootsies (click here to see why).

In the meantime what else would I be obsessing over…SHOES!

Specifically White Mules.  Nothing says “mama gear” more than white shoes…but you only live once, so buy the white ones!  🙂

Boston Strong!

What a day! reversecommuter was one of 36,000 participants in the 118th Boston Marathon. Blue skies, incredible supportive screaming onlookers, and unlimited stories of inspiration.
