T-shirt, espadrilles or flip flops and GO Beach Baby GO!
Designers are slicing and dicing…
and the results are sexy, summery and spectacular!
Alexander Wang sliced up the back of his stretch crepe mini dress in perfect summer sky blue.
Stella McCartney got her hands on a pair of scissors and snipped up a cotton ribbed-knit dress in a champagne yellow that begs for a heatwave, but is so simplistically perfect reverscommuter would wear it now!
Donna Karan New York’s cutout jersey top smacks of eighties’ roller skates and disco, updated perfectly for today.
Jonathan Simkhai’s Spring 2015 Collection shatters the definition of cool with pieces that combine skillfully designed clothes with clever textures perforated, cutout and resembling shards of shattered glass.
Everyone in celebrityland is wearing his and it is no wonder why!
Suburban mommy life can be…monochromatic at times.
POP a little color into the outfit for an unexpected splash of happiness to add to soccer practice, baseball games, swim meets, car pooling etc etc etc…Make it a good purchase, use it and love it for a few years – case in point, Ralph Lauren espadrilles.
And if orange shoes aren’t your thing, absolutely invest in a tube of Dior’s Addict Fluid Stick – easiest, sexiest, vampiest, most brilliant color addition to your wardrobe!
Confession Time – reversecommuter returned to the Dior makeup counter 2 days after I bought my Dior Addict Fluid Stick, to get the lovely salesperson to explain how to open the lipstick part…DUH!!! The lipstick is just a decoration!!!
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!
Technically the jeans item is a jean jacket, but updating the jeans & t-shirt look for Spring is a great excuse to bring out the skirts. Swing style is big for Spring 2014. Movement is the key word. Cue silly video…
Jonathan Simkhai’s flirty swing skirt is one of my new fave staples – it can be dressed up or down – like way up with stilettos and a silk tank or way down with flip-flops and cotton tank. That is the sign of an incredible piece! Click here to go get one! J Crew has a couple of fun flirty skirts in solids & florals, all at an easy price point too. Click each picture to go get some retail therapy!
ps TOTALLY loving ZekeStringer’s medallion necklace which arrived as a fabulous surprise! Many Thanks!
He** Yeah! Break those old fashioned fashion rules!
Especially if the linen is found in a t-shirt. It’s my new fave thing
And as an added bonus my husband thinks its huggable soft!
And as another added bonus most of the J Crew linen tees (Long and Short sleevers) are on sale – click here!
J Crew linen tshirt, Mother boyfriend jeans (YUMMMAROOOO) and Celine espadrilles.
Just another dull day in the burbs…
Or is it perhaps THE perfect day for a pirate fight?
Note the dastardly swashbuckling sword coming at me through the playhouse, er, I mean, the scurvy worthy pirate ship…
Despite the easy movement provided by my J Crew pleated shorts, I succumb to my injuries….
Don’t worry, I am a tough fashion obsessed pirate who will live to see another day, another Fashion Week, another Fall Collection….
J Crew pleated shorts, Burberry linen jacket, Alexander Wang tank, Celine espadrilles.
After a few dedicated hours shopping on Saturday, (thanks for coming with me awesome, handsome husband), the cut off shorts dilemma has been solved! PHEW!
I tried on a bunch of different pairs (Seven for All Mankind, AG, etc…) and the winner was…..
Rag and Bone. The Mila Short was the one I bought, and it was exactly what I was looking for – washed out denim and a relaxed cut. Sort of sits on the hip, very comfortable and easy to match with a plain white t-shirt. Great Summer Uniform!
Cut-offs can be particularly challenging…although Daisy Duke rocked them best, there is really no need for me to go too short! A rear-view review was key in the change room!
