Fashion & Finance Friday!

First day of Spring and it falls on a Friday!  WHOOOP!!!!!!!!!!  

(reversecommuter will not even comment on the fact that it will snow here in Boston later this evening…)

Cavalli trumps Pucci – it is ON in Italy!  Roberto Cavalli announced this week that Peter Dundas will return to the casa de Cavalli after a hiatus from the house of animal-print-body-hugging-plunging-cleavage designs, where he worked between 2002 through 2005.

Dundas was the creative director of Pucci from 2008 through to this February’s Milan Fashion Week.

Pucci moved quickly to report that MSGM’s Massimo Giorgetti will be Dundas’ replacement.

Should be interesting to see what happens to the rest of the ahem…collection.  If you cannot fight the urge to purchase, Barney’s just announced they will be carrying all the yeeziness!

Put that black turtleneck in the very back of your closet, pull out the brilliantly bright stilettos and celebrate the end of winter with a click of your heels and a clink of your champagne flute!

Donating to charities is always a great idea for unwanted clothing.  But what about the big ticket items that are unloved by you, but could totally rock someone else’s world?
