Spec-ulating

Holding the phone a little too far away from your face?  Tired of contact lens early morning eye pokes?


How about updating your look with a new pair of designer glasses?

Tom Ford is my current obsession.

Totally asking Santa for Cèline’s tortoise shell round frames…oh yes, THE list is already being prepped!

Earlier this year in Italy I came across Micromega, “the most exclusive eyewear in the world”.


The designs are extraordinarily unique, and their prices are clearly living up to the description!   The first picture shows a pair for 1070 euros, and the ones below are a cool 840 euros.   A visit to the website is highly recommended, the creations are so incredibly artistic!
A new pair of designer specs is a faster fix on your total look that a great fitting pair of jeans (yup, going there in an upcoming post…)

Boyfriend’s Back

The boyfriend cut is BIG this spring!

Distressed, sloppy, sexy jeans – nothing better.  J Brand’s distressed Sonny is reversecommuter’s current LIVE IN choice.

Dress it up with heels and a silk top or down with a t-shirt and a leather biker jacket and ankle boots.  Once it really warms up this style of jean BEGS for a tank tops and flip flops – perfect patio wear.  Acne’s POP Light Vintage screams summer nights – why not start warming up now?

Want to cheat on your boyfriend (jeans)?  MOTHER Denim’s The Overall Dropout (best name ever!!!!) allows you this extra curricular item.

Santa’s Boots

Actually, Day 8 of Day 4 of reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Parties (or Holiday Parties = whichever floats your festive boat) is all about Mrs. Claus’ boots!

Fringe worthy or what?  MEOW these Aquazzura’s would make anyone slide down the chimney!  We must all be on the NICE list as these gorgeous boots are now on sale at Bergdorf Goodman!  FALALALALAWOAH!

Ho-Ho-Horsebit Python Boots.  Oh Santa Baby pretty please put these in your big red sack for reversecommuter!  Absolutely not on sale but still available at Gucci.com.

 

 

Culotte Me Some Slacks!

Culottes cut the fall transition a lot of slack (get it?).  Cropped, wide leg and even with a hint of pleating!  A wide cropped leg with a gorgeously flattering waist, what  a perfect wardrobe piece to wear while bidding adieu to a ridicunculously great summer!

This is going to be my main look for 2014 fall – maybe even investing in cream, navy and gray as I already own 3 pairs of black.

Culottes from The Row

Not quite banishing the ankles and calves behind bolts of fabrics quite yet.

Acne Culottes

Culottes even allow for a little extended life for sandals, mules and kitten heels.

DKNY Culottes

So UGGS, mukluks, and snow boots hold off a little, bring on the culottes and let that tan fade away slowly…..

Alexander Wang Culottes

Sweater by any other name…

One hot pink rose left in the garden in November in New England.   It made me think of Shakespeare,  “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”

So naturally reversecommuter re-worked it into a fashion quote:  “A Sweater by any other name could be a coat.” (granted it is a stretch…)

But it does allow for a lot of flexibility in the wardrobe choices by including sweaters in the mix for outerwear!

It’s Coming…

Spring that is.

Rumor has it that the snow storms in the North East are almost done – almost.  Clearly that means it is time for a little white jean shopping!

All of the above?  Why not?  The season is right around the corner – don’t get caught with your white jeans down!  (tee hee)

FYI it is ABSOLUTELY okay to start wearing those fab white jeans right this very minute – mix it up!

Need Want

Kind of obsessed with these pants from Acne.  Click here to buy.

As you know, reversecommuter is loving the stripes for Spring 2013 in a BIG way, (click to see posting) and with the ankles slit open these are just a little different and super cute!  Could be fab dressed up with strappy heels or just with flats.

Orange-You-Glad There’s Champs?

reversecommuter is a big fan of the Boston Wine Festival.  (click the blue to learn more about the festival).  It is now in it’s 24th year, and Chef Daniel Bruce created this event and has grown it bigger and better every year.

200-boston-wine-festival-2

Chef Bruce single handedly sources out the vintners and then creates the menus to compliment the wines.  It is such a treat to attend one of the these dinners!

The Grand Opening Gala was held over the weekend.  Fun evening – lots of fab wine, food, people and champs!

nails

Great reason to get a bright orange manicure in January!  OPI Tansmanian Devil Made Me Do It.

Acne dress, Louboutin shoes.

Tickled Hot Pink!

Hot Pink is the new black!

Literally, it is THE color of Fall 2013.

Stella knows it  (click here for Stella McCartney’s website)

Brian Atwood knows it (click here to be taken to Brian Atwood’s website aka Shoe Heaven!)

Acne knows it (click here to be taken to ACNE, mild obsession for reversecommuter!!!!)

Alexander (all hail!!!) McQueen has it locked in with a bootie that will make you NUTSO!!!!!!!! (click the blue to be taken to Alexander McQueen)

More importantly, Michael Kors (and reversecommuter) knew it in Spring 2012…..

(that is my dress) and now all I have to do is find the perfect black patent platform pumps to update it for Fall!

Anchor’s Away!

A good shirt is truly a wardrobe’s anchor.  It works stand alone, under a blazer, piled under gobs of chains or with a fab scarf twisted about it.  It can be worn throughout the year, under sweaters, on top of cut-offs, dressing up the holiest of ripped jeans, even covering up a bikini!  How versatile is that?  Sounds like a stellar purchase to me!

Lanvin’s white silk blouse is too much for words!  Just click here and buy it – it is worth skipping those lattes at the corner shop for a week or so….

Or if that latte is just too darn important (and perhaps a big price tag is not what works for you right now) how about a little cutie pattootie from J. Crew?  Just click here and charge it!

Acne of course knocks it out of the park with this luscious purple sheer crepe number that will most probably end up in reversecommuter’s closet – yummy!  Click here to buy it (just leave me one please!).

Anna Sui’s sweet ruffles in that amazing raspberry is too much!  And by that I mean YES PLEASE!!!!  Click here to make a smart purchase!

All these phenomenal shirts and images are courtesy of Net-A-Porter.  If you haven’t ordered something off the site yet, do it!  You deserve not only the gorgeous piece that arrives but also the sheer excitement of untying the black ribbon and lifting off the rich box lid…it is like a private birthday party every time!  PURRRRRRRRRR.
