Ding Dong Bell Bottoms

Bell Bottom denim is THE investment for Fall 2015.

Add a little secret height with a great pair of boots or clogs if you think Bell Bottoms are only for the tall types.  Isabel Marant Etoile Crisi boots even hide the heel for you shy ones ūüôā

Stella McCartney naturally has THE best bells around.  Must be the Beatle association that helped her create the most flattering 70’s cut available!

Level 99 has long been a brand reversecommuter has loved – I even tried to convince them to design a maternity jean for my boutique in another life!  Anywho‚ĶLevel 99’s Evelyn Gaucho is beyond adorable and could be the funnest piece of fall denim available! Picture them with adidas Stan’s or strappy sandals or ankle boots and a simple t-shirt.

MOTHER Denim’s high waisted cruiser is in a wash MOTHER calls ‘bushwhacked’ and that is just what you will be if you don’t invest in a pair of these!

Wondering what to do with your distressed jeans…

  

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!

But once in a while it is fun to mix it up.  Bring on the bell bottoms!

Just be aware of proportions – identify the waist with shorter jackets, tucked in tops.
