Towel Me Off!

Beach Time is quickly approaching!


OBVIOUSLY that means Beach Towels must be purchased…

First up is the CUTEST frilliest funnest beach towel ever!



Missoni classic beach towel stripes are always in style.



Hermès offers the ULTIMATE luxe beach towel option.


 True Story: reversecommuter has a friend who has a vacation home in the South of France and loaded up her towel basket with these incredible towels…only to have an assortment of guests take them as souvenirs!!!


reversecommuter’s ride turns into a beach buggy in the summer…


so naturally this towel needed to be mine!

As always, click the pictures to start your retail therapy session.

Winter 2014 is a wicked long cold one, no argument (as this posts yet another storm is spanking New England).

Powder Hues and Powder Play!

Trying to find a ray of sunshine after your football team loses the AFC?  No Superbowl this year Patriots 😦


Why not enjoy Martin Luther King Day playing outside?  (even if you aren’t in the US, it is a really good birthday to celebrate!)


Bright sunglasses make a big difference in any weather.  It is like adding some instant sunshine and happiness!  Spring 2014 forecast is trending powdery pastel hues, might as well start preparing!  🙂


Oliver People’s Sheldrake in mint is a great find!  Click here to go to Barney’s.

Not So Underground Velvet

Tis the season to run around from 5:30am through till midnight – OY!


What to wear to take you from School Party to  Girls’ Luncheon, to Afterschool Celebration to Christmas Pageant to Drinks & Dinner with friends?   (besides coverup under the tired eyes?!)


In a word – VELVET.  It’s big this year, everyone from Banana Republic to Victoria Beckham Denim is offering it!  Click the blue to go shopping!  I have a friend that even bought two pairs (one dress pant and one jeans version…wonder if she kept them both?!).

V4Throw a scarf on & interchange flats, boots & heels to help carry the outfit through the busy day & night!



Velvet pants Prada, shearling Miu Miu.


No Edit!

reversecommuter was born without an edit button….


at least when it comes to packing (among other times…)


Heading off to a sunny beachy place with my yummy family for a vacation….but apparently packing for a month or two!   10 bikinis, 8 pairs of shorts, 14 dresses etc etc etc.  Oh well, a girl’s gotta have options!

What I am really craving is a new frilly girly sun dress but alas have not found exactly what I have in mind (don’t you hate that?!).  This is the closest to what I envision but isn’t quite it… (click here to go to net-a-porter to check it out)


Big Red Elf Stuff

Ski Jackets are key to winter happiness, even when not shushing down the slopes!


This time of year, hustling, bustling, ramping up on the BIG RED ELF responsibilities…


a stylish cute jacket will help you get through it all…or at the very least INSPIRE you to ask said BIG RED ELF for a fab jacket as a present! (Click the blue to see some FAB jackets on sale at net-a-porter right now!)


Moncler jacket, Mother Jeans (I am LOVING my Mother Skinnies), Lanvin flats, Loewe sunglasses.


I bought this necklace in Venice, Italy in 2008.
It reminded me of Gustav Klimt’s paintings.
I love wearing pieces that have meaning & memories. Usually those from a vacation as I love shopping when traveling.
To be honest I love shopping when not traveling too!


Velvet pants Prada, Coat Loro Piana, Shoes Lanvin, Bag Celine, T-shirt Club Monaco, Sunglasses Loewe.
