Fashion & Finance Friday!

Sunshine plus the end of the week = giddy fashion blogger!

DSquared2 (the beyond brilliant line by twin Canadian brothers Dan & Dean Caten) is about to open a store in the U.S., finally in my humble opinion, on Rodeo Drive.

reversecommuter has loved/obsessed over these designers since waaaaaaaay back to my very first job, retail shop girl for Ports International when Dan & Dean were the head designers.

DSquared2 presented their Spring 2015 show yesterday in Milan and it did not disappoint! They are mad geniuses (or is that genuii?) for denim – their jeans are the truest form of beauty that no other denim designer has ever touched.

Add to that their shoes, bags, hats, dresses, trenches, not to mention leather and this line is truly one to be VERY excited about.  Not to mention, all the models were sporting eyewear that matched the twins – adorbs!

Etro and Missoni presented at Milan Fashion Week today and reversecommuter is now dreaming in technicolor gorgeousness!

Even in Fall Collections both of these houses work in bright rich tones, a perfectly timed reminder to embrace the rainbow as we slowly enter the colder months.

Nothing makes black, grey and blue pop more than a hit of brilliance!

Stella does it again!  Stella McCartney presented her Green Carpet Collection, highlighting a sustainable evening capsule collection and it not only makes the world a better  place, it also for quicker heart rates amongst fashion lovers!

“The green carpet is the most sought-after validation in the fashion world for sustainability and excellence,” and this collection is so pretty it is easy to forget it is all eco too!  Like falling into a decadent bowl of highlighter bright sorbet!

In a time of mass production, copying and reproductions and disposable fashion, Stella McCartney has once again risen to the tippetytop of designers.  FAB FAB FAB!!!!!!!!

Celebrate that which makes you pop like a champagne cork this weekend – but do it in a Milan Fashion Week worthy outfit!

“Not As Flat As Her” – O.W.O.

Yup, some lady in a shop actually pointed to me and said that, LOUDLY, when describing to a salesperson the shape of her daughter.  Stellar Moment.

reversecommuter responded in an appropriate manner for a fashion blogger…

Nothing like a teeny weeny Italian bikini to make a girl grateful for her “limitations”.

O.W.O.

Peter Pilotto has arrived at Target!   Naturally a curious creature like reversecommuter would have to hit Target at 7:30am on a Sunday morning.  Rumor has it that the collection arrived online at 3am, but the only way to purchase was to go through Twitter, as the Target link was down.


Expectations were low, based on previous capsule collections offered by high end designers and Target.  But the hype on this was beyond ignoring!

Even Natalie Massenet was excited about this one.  For the first time ever, net-a-porter.com is selling the combined collection from Target – will wonders never cease?!?!?! Click here to see for yourself!

The price point was 19.99 thru 79.99, and the quality was so-so, but the prints were Oh So Pretty!    Click here to go get some – quickly as it is selling out!

Maybe it was the launch date of February 9th that can be blamed for the success of this line, all of us suffering from winter blahs, then suddenly taunted by gorgeous bright florals and prints.

The O.W.O (click here for definition) for this week is my 19.99 Peter Pilotto for Target long sleeve floral t-shirt & MOTHER boyfriend jeans – perfect to wear on a sunny winter Sunday!
