Fashion & Finance Friday!

Exactly what I needed – FRIDAY of a loooooong weekend.  While sipping the champs this weekend (as we do) let’s recall and respect Dr. King’s speech and vision.


Levi’s is about to preach and teach!  net-a-porter will launch a limited collection, Levi’s 501 CT, and across the land skinny jeans will weep. The CT in 501 CT stands for Customized and Tapered, which is what most anyone with any sense of style does to their 501s now.


Yup, higher waist, looser fit, and let’s be real people, no other jeans make the a*s look better than a beat up pair of 501s.  Set the reminder on the smart phone and get online to buy early March 2nd.  

Tommy Tommy Tommy.  You all know how I feel about the man, the myth the fashion legend Tom Ford.  Click here for a refresher!


Rumor on the cobblestone streets of Firenze is that Gucci might be bringing Tom back to run the fashion house of all things sexy.  #fingerscrossedfingerscrossedfingerscrossed!


Frida Giannini left early this week, despite a previously announced exit after the Fall 2015 show in February.  reversecommuter thinks that the Fall 2014 Gucci collection was her best but too little too late apparently.


The python, the bit boots, the shearling pink jacket – pity she released-the-beast right at the end.

Enjoy the loooooong weekend – dress up, wow your audience, and yourself!

Worth Every Penny

reversecommuter has a new man in her life…the cobbler.


Perhaps one too many struts across the cobblestone streets of Boston is to blame, but some of my heels need some love!


Ironically the cobbler visit made me realize that investing in great quality, designer pieces really is a wise choice.  Proper care (ie new lifts on the heels) only extends the life and encourages the same type of investments.

Good Shoe Rules:

1. NEVER be the girl who goes “TICKTICKTICK” across the floor (it means the nail head is exposed & you need new lifts)

2. When the red wears off the soles, it’s time to replace the Loubies!
