Lacy racy frilly bits are all over the runway, Spring & Summer 2016 Collections.  reversecommuter is obsessing huge for Dolce & Gabbana’s pajama party ad above.

Celine has dedicated it’s Spring ad campaign to a gorgeous, simple black and white slip dress and patent ankle boots.  Who couldn’t rock that outfit?  Who doesn’t love simple?

Celine’s entire Summer 2016 Collection is a veritable cornucopia of lingerie inspired deliciousness that delivers images of patios, cocktails and heat waves!

Not ready for a full frontal slip dress?  Baby steps people.  A camisole under a blazer with jeans or wide leg culottes during the day, then va-va-va-voom it up you little vixen for an evening look without the jacket.

Lace making too bold a statement?  Equipment has a streamlined slip dress that borrows from the tank dress.  Jean jacket, clutch and go!

YIKERS!

reversecommuter has just discovered an interesting fact…

My wardrobe is not exactly up to code in the Muslim world.

Normally that would not be of particular concern, living in boston and all…but I am traveling to Dubai later today!

Tune in next Wednesday for my next posting!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Happy Happy Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not only are the holidays upon us, so is earnings season!  JC Penney delivered some extremely disappointing (yet unsurprising) numbers.    But investors love a good comeback kid situation, so the honest reporting by the company (numbers are down because of a massive clean up operation from Ron Johnson’s merchandise selections while CEO) resulted in a spike in the stock price of over 9%.  reversecommuter’s guess is that JC Penney will return to what the retailer built itself on, a solid lower price department store.

T J Maxx is on a serious upswing and delivered some WOWZER numbers – apparently digging for designer bargains is a very popular pastime…shocker!

Got a spare $700?  There is nowhere better to spend it than at the Four Seasons Hotel Georges V on December 2nd.  UNICEF, for the 11th year, has invited designers such as Chanel, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton and many more, to create a doll.  The dolls are displayed at the Petit Palais and then auctioned off at the Hotel Georges V.  This year the campaign is directed towards the children of Darfur.  How can these dolls not be on every fashionista’s list?!?!

1.7 MILLION euros have been raised in the first 10 years, all going to vaccines for 300,000 children.   reversecommuter adores this campaign, as this is what Christmas should be about.

get a great coat and you look FAB!  Even when racing for the school bus, running behind schedule and wrapped up with a dog’s leash.

Jeans, t-shirt, ballet flats or heels and an amazing trench…

Ba-Da-Bing!   But only until the warm weather arrives, then the outfit needs to count just a little more.

J.Crew is a FANTASTIC option for a gorgeous trench at a wallet-friendly price (LOVE THAT!).  Joe Fresh offers a bright print option on the trench and at $49 it is a no-brainer!!!  Click the blue and buy one of them!

Toque Right Off

Really really really seriously cold.  New England is in a big bad freeze.

Time to pull out the toque, this kind of cold doesn’t take pity on underdressed fashion fools!  (the cold weather apparently brings out the Muhammed Ali in me).
