Tennis Love

I literally stopped playing in the middle of a tennis clinic because I couldn’t read the logo on a girl’s cute outfit.  


Believe me, I am a genius of discretion but I didn’t recognize the logo and I really needed to know what this fabulous outfit was!

Tennis clothing is a fairly tight family.  There are the behemoths Nike, Adidas, my personal obsession adidas by Stella McCartney and some others such as Lucky in Love, Monreal London, Fila and Chrissy by Tail.  


Attention please – there is a new kid in town and she is not messing around!  Yaffa Activewear, founded by Laura Preskin, is an entrepreneurial fashion startup that is delivering tennis gorgeousness, courtside and then off the court.
Influenced by ready to wear fashion, designed by a former fashion executive, Yaffa brings clever additions and unexpected details that absolutely set their clothes apart from the competition.  Blues, greys, brilliant whites and even spf treated pieces that reduce skin exposure to the sun.


Ruching is such a flattering addition to design, especially for the tennis set made up predominantly of women who have had children – there is only so much a daily plank can do, am I right?

Yaffa is available online and in various tennis and country clubs across the USA.  It can also be found in my closet…quite a few pieces actually, as I am a big fan!

Cropped Knitwear & The Polar Vortex

Cropped Knitwear and leggings?!  GOOD GRIEF reversecommuter has completely lost it!

No need to panic – I can explain.

Ever wake up in the winter and think “I really have nothing to wear, it’s cold, dark and cold!    Leggings and a black top, good enough.”

 NOOOOOOOO!  Not good enough, but a great base to build on.

Add a fun skirt on top of the leggings – go short!  Then add a sweater to the ensemble et voila!

Ta-Daaaaaaaa!

Here are a couple of skirts that would totally work over leggings (and then later after the THAW without leggings too!)

pssst – all on sale right now at net-a-porter.com (click the blue!!)

Not Slacks Nor Trousers

Leggings.

Thems’ is fighting words!

Leggings love boots, ankle boots, and ballet flats, long blouses, sweaters, tunics and jackets.

Don’t be afraid of them, embrace them…just remember they are not pants, so cover up the cheeks!

Mui Mui blouse, Susana Monaco leggings, YSL bag, Lanvin ballet flats.

p.s. Thank you all SO very much for your concern during Hurricane Sandy.  Happy to report my family and I are safe & sound & slightly addicted to room service at a hotel while awaiting power to be restored to our home.

Cinderella Cinderella

So I woke up at midnight, as soon as it was officially March 15, like any fashion obsessed person would do, to get online to gap.com to get some of the DVF Kids Collection for my daughter.

As has been already recognized, February 26 WWDP?, I love me some DVF!  Naturally I wanted to get a sampling of the stuff for the kiddos!

I managed to get four pieces, but most of the collection was already sold out!  Bananas!!!!!

I cannot wait to get the delivery and see if the same amazing, vibrant colors, patterns and quality are present.
