Exposed Skin

Usually the beginning of Lent means Spring has sprung.


Slightly sprung Spring at least by now….


reversecommuter is not known for patience – understatement!   Clearly drastic measures are necessary.


Coat off, bare legs, enough with the winter!


Tall boots, pleated skirt = more versatile looks while winter takes it’s sweet time finishing up.


Kirna Zabete (purrrrrrr) has a couple of super cute skirt options – buy now, wear throughout Spring & Summer too!  Click here to get into the swing of Spring!

Brighten Up!

Oh the snow…..


Boston schools are still closed, snow drifts are crazy high, lots and lots of snow all over the place.  Sounds like the perfect excuse for a wintery Monday GNO!


Always dressed in black & blue like a bruise?  Pop a little color into your outfit – it will brighten up your mood faster than downing 4000 IU Vitamin D drops!

Did you know that the Pre-Fall DVF Collection will mark the return of DIANE von FURSTENBERG as the solo designer of her label?!?!?!?!?  MUCH MORE on that in a later post!

The Thigh’s The Limit

Football season is officially over.  The Taco Bell seniors commercial was brilliant (click here to watch!!) and Beyonce proved she can dance like nobody’s business (loved the hair flicking and leather bustier!).


Leather Thigh High Boots and Basketball – that is where it is at now!


Thigh High Boots are fab for many reasons – adds a phenomenal touch to the everyday jeans outfit, cankles be gone, & extends the life of both skinny jeans and leggings.


Rock the thigh highs, sharpen up the trash talk (just in case the game is a little rusty because those 8 year olds are unforgiving)…


you know where this is going, don’t you?!?!?!…


SWISH – Nothin’ but net!

Fiorintini & Baker boots, Chanel jacket, Neiman Marcus sweater, Gucci scarf, MOTHER jeans.

Gobble Gobble Boots!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am grateful for my family & friends.
And by friends I most definitely include reversecommuter followers – Thank You!

Between all the preparations, baking, chopping, cooking, parade watching, champs drinking, family & friends time, reversecommuter hopes to find a smidge of time to hunt down the elusive perfect black riding boot.

reversecommuter is in Italy – and the time is a little different from the Easter Time Zone. Apologies for the tardy posting!

Fur vests are a great option for the fall weather – not quite cold enough for a winter coat, a little too cool for a simple trench or cardigan.

Just layer and go!

Now to find that elusive perfect cashmere winter coat….


Red in the Morning Sailor’s Warning

Frankenstorm, pahshaw!

Sunshine is right around the corner.  Give or take a day or two.

In bidding adieu to the tropical storm season why not pop on a nautical striped something to celebrate?

Atleast until the first Nor’Easter spanks us silly and buries all our cars with snow!

Have Boots, Will Pick

Apples, will pick apples.

Once again proving that when trapped in the burbs, one must acclimatize…reversecommuter went apple picking, for the VERY FIRST TIME EVER!

Wore Fiorintini & Baker boots.  Fiorintini & Baker makes incredible, delicious, stylish boots made out of ridiculously luxurious Italian leather.  They just opened their one and only store in the US in SOHO, otherwise you can pop into their shop in Milano, or shop online.

Click the  picture and go to a REALLY COOL BOOT SITE!

Accompanying the Fiorintini & Baker boots was a little Alexander McQueen (scarf), and The Row (long sleeved t-shirt).

suburbanly challenged yes, but still fashionable.

oh, and scattered amongst the apple orchard there were pumpkins too.


Love the boot look in the summer, especially when one purchase can stretch all the way into November!

(as always, please just click right on the blue highlighted wording to buy the item!)

Linen Leather combo…uh, hello brilliance, please slide on.

Cream leather ankle biker, yes you do look delightful under a tank dress (and then later on with jeans).

Obviously these brown ankle booties are begging for a whole bunch of months to be worn!  Now with white jeans, later with a sweater and some jean cut-offs….purrrrrrrrrrr.
