Fashion & Finance Friday!

What A Week!!!!!!!

Hurricane Sandy was one destructive storm, taking New York and the fashion world with it!

Hearst, Condé Nast, Corporate head offices such as J.Crew, malls such as reversecommuter’s favorite, The Americana Manhasset, all shut down – some still shut down as of today.  Malls and shops throughout the East Coast black and empty.    Barney’s re-opened Tuesday afternoon and although Fred’s (awesome restaurant – BEST people watching ever!!!) was still closed, the fab fashion peeps at Barney’s were spoiling shoppers with pb&j sandwiches and coffee.  Yet ANOTHER reason (on top of the shoe department!!!) to love love love Barney’s!

Spanx is opening stand alone boutiques – women and men throughout the US are shouting HURRAY!!!!!!!!!!  Spanx is privately owned by the founder, smarty pants Sara Blakely, and has annual sales of approximately $230 MILLION.  That number will definitely grow as the Spanx stores do!

Evian & DVF (click here for my earlier post on this awesome collaboration!) have released their bottle – is there nothing La Grande Dame Diane cannot knock out of the park?!?!  It is the very first time that Evian has invited an American designer to participate.  And the bottle is PHENOM!

Have a fantastic, hurricane free, champs infused weekend!

Storm Residue & Cute Shoes

yard work bores me

Checked out of the hotel yesterday, returned home to survey the damage – clearly I took the job very seriously…

not too bad, thankfully!

Now reversecommuter can focus on more important things…

like shoes  🙂


jacket Kill City, t-shirt Club Monaco, jeans J Brand, belt Hermes, shoes Roger Vivier

Eloise…

reversecommuter is not much of a camper.  Insert shocked reaction here…HAHAHA!

Hurricane Sandy is scheduled to hit New England today.  Supposed to be a big one that knocks out power for days.

Which is exactly why I checked into a hotel yesterday.  (don’t you love my serious, pre-storm facial expression?!)

Nothing says hurricane like room service!  (that’ll put a smile on my serious face)

Lot’s of questions coming in requesting a great t-shirt line.  One of my favorites is Kristensen Du Nord, from Copenhagen, Denmark.  It is rather difficult line to find, but when you do…load up!  (click here to go to the Kristensen Du Nord website & store listings)

Hope you are all safe & sound & storm free!

Burberry blazer, Balenciaga boots, J Brand jeans, Hermes belt, Kristensen Du Nord t-shirt.
