O.W.O. (one weekend outfit)

“Dirty Little Driving Secret” is my attempt at a Public Safety Message to help others avoid wedge-affected driving!


 

reversecommuter can drive in stilettos without a problem, but these rockstuds are driving duds!

So slap on a pair of Havianas, drive safely, then pop on the gorgeousness before exiting the car!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Sunshine, happiness and fashion – all on a Friday no less!

Zacky’s back!  File under strange bedfellows, Zac Posen is now the Creative Director for Brooks Brothers, in an attempt to “modernize” their women’s line.

Good Luck Zac, you might need to call in Nina Garcia & Heidi Klum to tap some of the creativity from Project Runway!

Oh Solo Mio!  That is a little reversecommuter joke, as Brunello Cucinelli’s head office is located in a small Italian village called Solomeo (insert hysterical laughter here!!).  Brunello Cucinelli recently created a trust in his 2 daughters’ names and transferred the entire company’s money into the trust.

Brunello created the trust to “ensure unified management” within his company but also to ensure the philanthropic and environmental focus of the company continues into the next generation of leadership.  Click here for more on Brunello and how much reverse commuter LOVES his luxe cashcash.

Wishing you a stupendously fabulous weekend filled with amazing outfits and endless champs!

A Great White (T-Shirt)

Holy Moly I do love a good t-shirt, almost as much as I love gardenias.

T3

But not when they dissolve into a pile of holes – the t-shirts, not the gardenias.

T5

And I don’t want to break the bank – especially as white tees need to be a new annual purchase, so as to avoid the dreaded yellow pits.

T4

I am loving J Crew linen t-shirts again – click here to read about the love.  The short sleeve crew neck t-shirts come in a rainbow of colors and are on sale CLICK HERE!!!!!

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…)

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Is it just me or are Summer Fridays are WAAAAAAAY better than Winter Fridays!

There is a theory on the street that Olivier Theyskens is about to leave Theory (redundant humor, tee hee!).  He came, he redesigned the brand and the blazer (ooooh lala did he ever!), and now he will leave.

If you are a fan, the final collection is slated to be Spring 2015.

Milano is hosting the Mens Fashion Week aka Pitti Uomo, and the coverage of the clothing, models and trends is enough to keep a fashionblogger up all night!  Thank you GQ and Tommy Ton for this awesome pic!

 

Zegna presented on June 20th – YUMMMMMAROOOOOO!!!

Even landmark architecture is getting into the play.  Pucci dressed the Baptistery of San Giovanni, and the impact is wondrous!

The Battistero sketch, actually drawn by Emilio Pucci in 1957, has shrouded the Baptistery.  Ridiculously cool, colorful and creative!

In the spirit of Pucci, throw on something bright and gorgeous and CELEBRATE the weekend, with champs and fashion!

Summer Do!

reversecommuter is a commit-a-phobe.

doA

I would love to have the guts to change up my hair every season, but I don’t.

do3 Annually in May & June I toy HARD with the idea of cutting my hair drastically – usually a la Bardot (click here to review last year’s BIg Change…NOT!).  Is Bridget Bardot ridiculously perfect in this shot or what?!

Think I might have struck gold this year with my 2014 Summer Do and it is short…and pinned up.  Queue the chicken noise…

Twitter allows GIFs as of 06/18/2014 so here is reversecommuter’s vlog-a-bration!  Whoop Whoop!


 

 

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.
