Best Shorts!

Fashion needs to meet life at least in the middle – J Crew TOTALLY understands that.


Children drop approximately 6 KAZILLION things daily – which means mamas need to be able to bend down and pick up those 6 KAZILLION items, ideally without flashing the world!  But that doesn’t mean giving up fashion, style and great designs.


Price is user friendly too!  Click here to see all of the J Crew shorts currently available.

pic1 and Mr. Porter started carrying J Crew a few years ago, and reversecommuter was confused!  So I contacted the company to see exactly why the GREAT & ALL FASHIONABLE Natalie Massenet would want to bring in the catalogue company’s clothing.  The answer was simple – great design at a great price.  TRUE!


O.W.O. (one weekend outfit) is all about summer black…


Sounds like an oxymoron but it isn’t.  Just keep the fabrics light, such as the silk in the Jonathan Simkhai slit godet top.  AMAZING staple in the wardrobe fyi.


This top has such great swing, kind of a great choice for date night!  But I think I will refrain from the goofy facial expressions…

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Thank the powers above, the weekend has arrived!!!!!!!!!

Bergdorf Goodman (aka my mecca) is about to get a facelift, starting with the 6th floor.  Rumor has it the space will be transformed into an emerging talent incubator, replacing sportswear and lingerie.  Shopping will not be affected nor will hard hats be mandatory.


With up and coming talents like Jonathan Simkhai, Public School and Rosie Assoulin (reversecommuter’s crazy big fashion crushes), an area dedicated to emerging talent is a BRILLIANT idea.


Top Bloggers are raking in the dough-ray-me!  According to an article this week,the tippy-top of the blogosphere aka Bryan Boy, man repeller, Elin Kling etc, can command up to $50,000 for a personal appearance and even get up to $3000 for a sponsored instagram posting.  Bryan Boy’s quote = a great definition of fashion happiness to the NTH degree: “I’ve made enough to live comfortably and be able to not wear samples and buy my clothes retail.”


Designers & Sponsors, In case you need to track me down to initiate negotiations… instagram is reversecommuter and twitter is reversecommutr (when you wish upon a star…..)

CELEBRATE every single moment this weekend and raise the champs flute to all the little things in life that bring love.  HKT I am talking to you my friend.  MWAH!

 True Story: reversecommuter has a friend who has a vacation home in the South of France and loaded up her towel basket with these incredible towels…only to have an assortment of guests take them as souvenirs!!!


reversecommuter’s ride turns into a beach buggy in the summer…

reversecommuter was in a bikini or a cover-up all weekend.

Attacking the monster water slide (all day long!!!), made me appreciate investing in a well made bathing suit!
