Hey Sailor

Navy and white stripes.  Simple. Classic.  Clean.  Always in style.


There is a reason the French line Saint James is constantly being “discovered”, even though the fisherman sweater was first created in the 19th century.  The line is currently being touted at J Crew, as well as their own online shop.


This is a great look year round, not just summer.  Add a jean jacket on top of this dress and it can work up until the leaves change and fall off the trees.  


By far my favorite bag right now is my tiny little Chloe mini Marcie bag.  Cross shoulder, holds my phone (barely), keys, a couple of credit cards and my Kiehl’s tub of lip balm.  The best part of free hands is allowing more hand holding!

O.W.O. Skin

Traffic Jam in the ‘burbs!

O.W.O. this week is all about the simplicity of a dress.  One piece = easy peasy outfit!

Leather is big for Spring 2014 AND for Fall 2014.  Balenciaga, Gucci, Yigal Azrouel, Fendi, Akris, Chanel, Jonathan Simkhai  – all the cool kids have skins in their collections!

Translation – buy now, wear now and later!  Amortize that purchase peeps!

I am throwing down the gauntlet. A fashion challenge if you will….

Wear a dress one day a week for the next month.

It is THE most versatile piece in your closet. Plus it makes getting dressed a snap!

Triple dog dare you!

Don’t Blink

Summer officially ended on Labor Day.

HOGWASH!
As long as it is warm enough, wear the sleeveless, the sun dresses, the open toes, the shorts (Oh! don’t get me started on the shorts, again!), and anything else that resembles summer wardrobe pieces.

Celebrating the ‘end’ of summer means one thing for reversecommuter – hit a patio!

P.S. margaritas help keep away any chills quite effectively 🙂

Row Row Row Your Closet…

Corny title – I know, but the only reference I could muster up for The Row, a line that I am just a little bit obsessed with!  The Olsen Twins are the talent behind this line, and continue to win awards and clientele based on superb design and creativity.

Charlize Theron looked phenom in The Row‘s pre-fall leather dress at the Snow White and the Huntsman premiere in Tokyo.  That movie is so on my summer must see list.

I just watched “Young Adults“.  Charlize’s character was such a tragic hot mess, and she delivered such a convincing portrayal of a hangover that I found myself in search of some diet coke too!


I spotted a gorgeous The Row sleeveless leather dress at Barney’s, tightly secured by a chain and alarm wire (might have had something to do with the $2600.00 price tag).  It felt like butter!!!!!!!!!

Summer Boobies 911

How’s that for a title?  🙂

As noted, I have a little love affair going on with Acne.  Their designs, materials and cuts are gorgeously clever and unique!  This is my newest acquisition.

The silk is quite sheer and the open slit back is a little bit of a challenge, especially regarding lingerie accompaniments.

Problem Solved!!!!  Top Hats!  No need for a pesky bra, just slap these nipple concealers on and off you go to a patio, a party, a dance, whatever, without worries, they stay in place without any petal outlines or straps.

Went to a charity dinner last night, with quite a few of my favorite friends.  One fab friend wore a bustier made entirely out of recycled ties!

Attention Charlie, all of your angels are waiting for your telephone call!
