Polar Vortex be damned – It’s Friday!!!!!!!

Miu Miu has brought in a cutie patootie foursome to star in the Inez & Vanood shot Spring Campaign.  It is a visual vacation into gorgeousness!

Tour through the imaginary bedrooms of Elle Fanning, Bella Heathcote, Lupita Nyong’o, Elizabeth Olsen, while enjoying one of the BEST collections for Spring 2014.

Pinks, reds, rich leather, vibrant pulsating floral patterns, cool textured stockings and big buttoned coats that beg for an Easter basket!  The makeup is exceptionally delicious in this campaign, think pink baby girl cheeks and doe like eyelashes that go on for ever.

 

Levi’s just announced it is laying off 500 employees.  So Weird considering there are denim designers enjoying huge success selling reformatted men’s Levi’s 501 jeans to women.

RE/DUN out of Los Angeles is the leader of this pack and the jeans are phenomenal!

The back pocket of these jeans have a light outline of a wallet impression – kind of a fun story to share on the next GNO (girls’ night out)!

RE/DUN limits the size of each campaign, currently it was 100 pairs, and there are only a few left online, a testimony to the fit, wash and design of these green jeans.  Cool Cool Cool!

Pop the champs, apply the pink blush, glue on the eyelashes, slip into the dress and walk glamorously in those heels – the holidays are coming and it is time to dress up just because!

Green is the New Black

Pharrell happily does it with bionic yarn and G-Star.


The plastic garbage in our ocean (6x more than sea life) is transformed into bionic yarn’s denim – actually fibre that can be made into clothes – gorgeous, cool, style that does way more good than ANY designer denim EVER has.  Shop the collection here!

Stella McCartney does it with a lifelong commitment to sustainability, no fur no leather no suffering just green.  Highlighted recently by reversecommuter, Stella’s Green Carpet Collection was inspiring, beautiful, clean and pretty.  Despite all of those attributes it was also green!

Über-fab Australian accessories line LouenHide uses polyurethane PU and it looks like leather, feels like leather and the price is silly – as in good silly!

FYI Their cosmetic pouches make a phenomenal evening clutch.

Our planet is such a delicate, amazing place filled with unlimited inspiration for fashion, art and imagination.  Making a small difference individually can result in a monumental change for the good.

 

 

 

 

O.W.O. DenimSquared

O.W.O. (one weekend outfit) is all about denim.

reversecommuter used to steer away from denim on denim for fear of being one acid wash accident away from tragic.  Picture it.  Shudder.

Designer’s have upped the denim game, the cuts, the colors, the styles, the textures, the rips and whiskers, all have cured me and now the possibilities are endless.

Think about it – overalls, denim jackets, jean shirts, layered, interspersed with accessories to play up the look and deepen the blues’ hues.

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Sunshine plus the end of the week = giddy fashion blogger!

DSquared2 (the beyond brilliant line by twin Canadian brothers Dan & Dean Caten) is about to open a store in the U.S., finally in my humble opinion, on Rodeo Drive.

reversecommuter has loved/obsessed over these designers since waaaaaaaay back to my very first job, retail shop girl for Ports International when Dan & Dean were the head designers.

DSquared2 presented their Spring 2015 show yesterday in Milan and it did not disappoint! They are mad geniuses (or is that genuii?) for denim – their jeans are the truest form of beauty that no other denim designer has ever touched.

Add to that their shoes, bags, hats, dresses, trenches, not to mention leather and this line is truly one to be VERY excited about.  Not to mention, all the models were sporting eyewear that matched the twins – adorbs!

Etro and Missoni presented at Milan Fashion Week today and reversecommuter is now dreaming in technicolor gorgeousness!

Even in Fall Collections both of these houses work in bright rich tones, a perfectly timed reminder to embrace the rainbow as we slowly enter the colder months.

Nothing makes black, grey and blue pop more than a hit of brilliance!

Stella does it again!  Stella McCartney presented her Green Carpet Collection, highlighting a sustainable evening capsule collection and it not only makes the world a better  place, it also for quicker heart rates amongst fashion lovers!

“The green carpet is the most sought-after validation in the fashion world for sustainability and excellence,” and this collection is so pretty it is easy to forget it is all eco too!  Like falling into a decadent bowl of highlighter bright sorbet!

In a time of mass production, copying and reproductions and disposable fashion, Stella McCartney has once again risen to the tippetytop of designers.  FAB FAB FAB!!!!!!!!

Celebrate that which makes you pop like a champagne cork this weekend – but do it in a Milan Fashion Week worthy outfit!
