Navy and white stripes. Simple. Classic. Clean. Always in style.
There is a reason the French line Saint James is constantly being “discovered”, even though the fisherman sweater was first created in the 19th century. The line is currently being touted at J Crew, as well as their own online shop.
By far my favorite bag right now is my tiny little Chloe mini Marcie bag. Cross shoulder, holds my phone (barely), keys, a couple of credit cards and my Kiehl’s tub of lip balm. The best part of free hands is allowing more hand holding!
Easiest way to brighten up a look? Add a shock of neon a la Andy Warhol.
Pompoms, currently found on everything from dresses, rompers, scarves and bags. Misa’s Camille dress (Recently spotted on Olivia Palermo) is a budget friendly fun example.
Miami Swim Week. What part of that statement doesn’t deliver excitement?
One event reversecommuter was lucky enough to attend was Coast’s rooftop party presenting a handpicked lot of designers and their incredible lines. Designers included Acid NYC, Luxchillas, YannaK and Style Mafia.
Style Mafia is a Miami based line of beautifully designed clothing, incredible craftsmanship and seriously ridiculous-in-the-good-way pricing.
Valeska and Simmonett Perera are the mother/ daughter masterminds behind Style Mafia. Creating a line that didn’t break the bank yet still delivered trend on fashion was the absolute goal.
Valeska (on the far left), having just returned from traveling abroad to Lebanon and Columbia, was not exhibiting any jet lag at the party, but rather was warm and friendly towards the crowd of Mafia Style fashionistas!
Heat waves mean getting creative at minimal dressing. Naked only works in certain circles.
What is better than a one piece wonder? Iro’s georgette playsuit works perfectly well at keeping it cool during the day and then adding a little heat at night with a pair of gladiator sandals and a fun clutch.
Rompers are the equivalent of an adult onesie. Why should the little ones get all the perks? James Perse linen playsuit is a perfect example of simplistic pleasure. And it doesn’t get much better than having it called a “playsuit” – it’s practically a dare to have fun!
For a more budget friendly option Tart’s strapless cotton romper (with a great price of $ 128) represents what just might be the single best piece of clothing you own on a disgustingly sticky hot humid day!
Summer weather is supposed to be sticky and uncomfortably hot but with rompers the biggest dilemma will be which one will you wear first?
Pirates love this detail.
Sailors too. Luckily land-locked designers are fully embracing this too!
Monroe’s white lace up gives a major refresh to the perfect white tee.
Apparently Alexander Wang is all about this trend with this entertaining Spring 2016 cotton sweater. Is it just me or is this THE ultimate baseball sweater?
Equipment’s cotton lace up blouse (ahem – totally on sale right now!) is a fantastic addition that will carry right into the Fall!
Alexander McQueen’s mini dress has a sporty take on the lace up detail that screams summer!
Clearly this dress would be THE one piece wonder packed in that holiday suitcase, slap a pair of gladiator sandals and run from the beach to cocktails to dinner!
All that laces up doesn’t go in the front. Take Red Valentino’s flirty black coat with the lace detail in the back.
This coat would look phenomenal all dressed up OR paired with a favorite pair of jeans. That sounds like a perfect purchase!
Jonathan Simkhai’s Pre-Spring lace up sleeved blouse is beyond on trend – it is everything.
Slip off the blazer in the middle of the meeting – yup, even if it is a bake sale meeting, PTO meeting or an actual board meeting – these sleeves will Tie It All Up!
Spring 2016 is the East is chilly, as in freezing cold!
Allow reversecommuter to turn chilly lemons into lemonade.
Spring collections are seconds away from going on sale. No need to feel blue about your frozen baseball bleacher trapped body parts. Warmer weather is (hopefully) just days away.
Retail is a strange business. Fall 2016 collections will be on store floors & websites by mid June.
Coveted designer labels such as Marysia Swim are already dropping prices online.
Dresses, on sale too. Alexander Wang just sent out their VIP private sale announcement yesterday, and this awesome striped racer back dress is 40% off. Ahoy there!
Yup, even the tassels magical unicorn of shoes (sexy, high heeled and comfy!), Aquazzura‘s wild thing!
A clever strategy right about now would be to go to all your favorite online shopping spots and fill up your wishlist basket.
Don’tcha just love a happy ending?!
