Tee Time!

The ultimate wardrobe staple, rivaled only by the coveted pair of flattering jeans.  Behold, the T-SHIRT!

T2

Last year J Crew had a linen t-shirt that was luxurious.  Not a normal adjective for a t-shirt. Sadly it is not offered this year and so the search begins…

T by Alexander Wang

T by Alexander Wang

T by Alexander Wang maintains the standing of BEST T-SHIRT available.   Pure cotton, silk blend, linen blend, plain colors, striped – go get the variety!

James Perse

James Perse, the über cool California king of cotton, has a relaxed v-neck t-shirt that is light enough to convince you that you aren’t wearing anything!

The Row

The Row (how did the fashion world exist while the Olsen Twins were Full Housing it?!) has the perfect accompaniment to distressed jeans.

Kate Moss

reversecommuter has yet another dilemma (click here for the battle between bellinis and bloody marys!).  Kate Moss or Bridget Bardot?

The Big Bang!

What is it about January that begets BIG change in the hair department?

Every January, like clockwork, reversecommuter decides to mix it up.  Let’s keep in mind that this means DRASTIC change like…a trim…or maybe a few curls…or a side part.  WOAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Easy does it Marcia Brady!

Blaming the cold weather is the perfect answer.  It’s SUPER cold, days are short, kinda trapped indoors like a poorly trained hibernator, if that doesn’t cue hair cut I don’t know what does!

Sienna Miller has bangs…

Jane Birkin arguably had THE best bangs…

With a very close second place going to Bridget Bardot…

Unknown-2Adding bangs is a big change but at least it has been historically recognized as a lasting hair trend!

reversecommuter now has bangs.  Or as my 5 year old has dubbed them, “BING BANGS”.  Length is now a few inches shorter too – did you know that long hair should be trimmed every 8-12 weeks?

If nothing else, mixing up the order apres shower has made this frosty January fun and different – who knew you have to dry bangs quickly so as to avoid crazy hair?!?!?!?

 

 

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!


 

 

Blue Nails, Bangs and Bandaids

After debating the big haircut for a little bit, (translation “after OBSESSING for 3 months), I decided to take the plunge!
Bridget Bardot’s picture that was the inspiration is a permanently burned bookmark on my iPad, it was visited so often!

I’ve always seen clients at the hair salon enjoying a glass of liquid courage, but up until Operation Bardot Bangs, I’d never tried it….not a terrible option FYI!
My hairstylist sacrificed herself for the bangs – got a cut wielding those sharp scissors – and was sporting a Bandaid at the end. Poor gorgeous girl!

All About Bridget

I Adore / Love / ADORE / LOVE Bridget Bardot. To me she is THE fashion icon, in a very elite group of maybe three or four (Coco Chanel, Jacquie O, Audrey Hepburn would be the others on my list).

Maje (a clothing line out of Paris) just announced they are launching a line of Bridget Bardot t-shirts. Hot Diggity!!!!!!

To help celebrate my giddy state of pre-t excitement, I am wearing my Saint James striped L/S t, tres BB influence.

And, I am toying with the idea of BB inspired bangs for the summer……..
