White Stuff

Here we snow again… while I run around groc shopping and filing my home with exotic fresh flowers (my answer to yet another snow storm)…

Why not ooooh and aaaaaah about some gorgeous white stuff – like this shirt dress with an exposed back from Rosie Assoulin, a designer reversecommuter is mildly obsessed with.  What Rosie does with material is deconstructed magic!  Click here to buy it now on ModaOperandi.com (speaking of reversecommuter obsessions….)

Alexander McQueen has another drool worthy dress on net-a-porter.com that definitely has a spot inside my fantasy shopping cart!

One selection for the shopping cart of reality is the Abby dress from Club Monaco

Obviously Jonathan Simkhai’s eyelet dress – which interestingly is in both shopping carts with an amazing design and equally friendly price!

Street Cred Mama

Cool factor seeps out of my pores daily.

I live in the suburbs.  Not cool.   I am a mother of three, (that part is ABSOLUTELY REALLY COOL), but being a mama means that daily there is a potential that I could be dealing with all kinds of scary gross bodily things, from other bodies!  Boogers & Poop – Not cool.

That is why when I stumble upon something really genuinely cool and hip, a really big young thang smile spreads across my face.

Bodega in Boston is responsible for my latest smile.

It is not a easy store to find, or get into, but once in you will have a ridiculously hard time deciding on any one pair of shoes, or remembering that you live in the burbs.  Bodega is filled with color, style and cuts in running shoes that your imagination hasn’t even come up with yet.

Rap beats fill the room, rich beautiful wood coats the walls, complete with an old English library ladder on wheels to reach the bags and hats way up high.  The clientele is understated in that manner that screams to everyone else that the cool quota has been reached.  Like in a Pharell manner when he was just in the Nerds.

And yet when reversecommuter squeals really loudly “I just had a major Cinderella moment” they all just stop and smile knowingly.  ‘Cause I am cool.  And so are my awesome new kicks.

O.W.O.

Kinda digging the O.W.O. posting every Monday (click here for the definition!)

Busy first weekend of Spring.

Funny how fast those two days fly by!

Saturday morning was my last long training run before the Boston Marathon (just one little tiny month away!!!!).  It is an amazing experience training on the Marathon route with hundreds of other runners, you see some incredibly inspiring individuals, are greeted with a ton of happy smiles (despite the miles), and on occasion even get a high five!    Boston Strong INDEED!

Still chilly in Boston so reversecommuter’s shearling is still getting used.  Rumor has it there is yet ANOTHER snowstorm coming on Wednesday – so not in Vogue!
