Red White Blue & You!

Happy Almost July 4th Weekend!


I decided to celebrate early to give you a last minute chance to overnight a cute outfit for the loooooong weekend.


RED is for Rosie.  Rosie Assoulin’s red for Resort 2016 is available now at Moda Operandi and practically begs for sparklers!


(reversecommuter’s red Rosie Assoulin pants are from the Spring 2015 Collection)


White belongs to Jonathan Simkhai (the SIGH is silent in his name but OHSO there in his clothes!).


His white cutout oxford dress is the perfect piece to take you from picnic to pier to fireworks!


Blue is all about ALC’s Santo Sleeveless Dress.  Can’t you just see yourself zipping around the corners in your antique convertible, scarf tied hair, racing to get to the party?!  Classic elegance and ease wrapped up in a sale price!

Raise the champs flute to the Red White and Blue, and while you are at it, celebrate you!!!!!!!

Jean Jacket Love

Nothing like a Memorial Day long weekend to remind you of the importance of the ultimate American wardrobe staple – the denim jacket.


Quite possibly THE best piece for the summer.  Easy, quick, goes with absolutely everything.  Like wide leg linen pants, and Superga running shoes.


Oh and the price. that also helps to make it THE best staple.  J Crew has a couple of great choices, each for about $100.00.  Click the pic to go straight to shopping happiness!

Hope everyone had a great long weekend!



Fashion & Finance Friday!

How is it ALREADY Friday?  LOVE when that happens!!!!


Amazon is continuing it’s quest to become the fashion world’s one stop shopping site.  Really.  The online behemoth has just added luxury make-up and skin care to its line up.  Click here to buy a jug of LaPrarie then jump over regular ol’ Amazon and pick up some grocery supplies and maybe a book.  Didn’t anyone ever mention to Jeff Bezos that it is not ideal to be all things to all people in the world of retail?  Click the blue for more…


Speaking of luxury shopping and make-up (clever segway huh?) there was a flurry of gossip surrounding reversecommuter’s favorite site,  WWD had a story run earlier in the week that suggested that was planning on buying net-a-porter.


HAPPILY Princess Natalie (the UBER gifter fashion visionary that created net-a-porter & mr. porter) is not reliquishing control of the kingdom anytime soon.  Net-a-porter quickly shot down the rumors and the most luxurious of all luxury shopping sites is not for sale, thank you very much!  (can you hear my exhale of relief? net-a-porter is my happy place!!!! – click the blue if you don’t believe me!)

Enjoy the looooooong weekend and feel free to pack a fashionable something and an extra bottle of bubbles for the trip!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Looooooooong Weekends are the BEST!

Lots of fantastic numbers being reported this week!  Gap Inc leads the way with 42.9% Q1 growth in profit – that is a lot of t-shirts (such good basic tees!).


Armani enjoyed another stellar year, announcing 20% profit gain for 2012.  Apparently Giorgio is going to be putting some of that right back into his company in the form of a new boutique in Cannes.  Guess the pop up was convincingly profitable!


Somebody is interested in buying Sak’s…or atleast that is the rumor on the street and it is so convincing that the stock is up 20% in the past two days!  Sak’s Fifth Avenue just announced it’s Q1 income as 20 MILLION – so whoever is potentially shopping around will obviously have deep pockets!



Enjoy the Loooooooooong Weekend – slap on a party outfit, get a blow out and feel like the  fierce fabulous fashionable creature you are meant to be!!!!!!!!!!!!!
