reversecommuter & her FRB (fabulous running buddy) at the half way mark – just about to run into a phenomenal cheering crowd of friends and family!

3 miles to the finish line the race was cancelled due to a bombing.  Prayers go out to the families who lost a loved one.

Thank you all SO VERY MUCH for all the emails checking on me and my family – it meant the world!

Fashion & Finance Friday

Friday before a long weekend – WHOOP WHOOP!!!!!!!!!!

Friday before Marathon Monday too – TRIPLE WHOOP WHOOP!!!!!!!!!

J.C. Penney is one busy company, on the executive side, sadly not on the retail side.  Click here to read about the dream launched a year ago to save the retailer.

Ron Johnson is out, Mike Ullman III is back as CEO, and Wall Street doesn’t think the prognosis is good for the patient.  The pop ups, shops-in-shops mini boutiques, rebranding and cool new lines were not enough.  Bummer, as reversecommuter thought this held massive potential – if the turn around happened it would have been the stuff of retail legend!

Lanvin has lost it’s managing director, Thierry Andretta, due to “personal reasons” aka not playing nicely with Shaw-Lan Wan, the majority owner, Chairman and CEO of Lanvin.  Huge loss to the company, but as long as Alber Elbaz is still the design head, reversecommuter is deliriously happy!

Over 27,000 people will run the Boston Marathon on Monday April 15th, including reversecommuter (#23448).  Fingers crossed & good luck fairy dust please!!!!

Have a sensational weekend and wear a bright Spring trending color while doing a mundane chore just to feel fabulous!

Boston Marathon Here I Come…naked?

No, not really! I just don’t know what I am going to wear on April 15th for 26.2 miles.

boston2013 So on occasion between now and race day, I am going to work through some selections.
The BEST part is that I have to wear the outfits first to make sure it is comfortable…shopping time!!!!!!

The tricky bit about workout wear is the dreaded wedgina (click here to learn more).

First up, adidas by Stella McCartney. Simply crazy gorgeous! The materials, colors, textures, the little unexpected details, the design…uh, the fact that STELLA did it!!!!!!!!!!!!

reversecommuter is the giddy happy owner of the light blue & tangerine spotted 3/4 length running tights (LOVE) and the white windbreaker (equally LOVE!).

If I have to pound out 26.2 miles on April 15th, I might as well have a STELLA-R (punn intended) workout wardrobe to get me there!
