O.W.O. (One Weekend Outfit) all about keeping warm but not too warm!
Vortex Schmortex. Weather radar had predicted a freezing cold weekend and didn’t deliver. reversecommuter was not disappointed, although running around prepping my little princess’ birthday party (complete with photo booth props that I clearly had to test drive!) kept me so busy I barely noticed the weather!
Shearling, fur and denim made for a perfect weekend outfit. Layering a long sleeve t-shirt with a boyfriend cut sweater under a cropped jacket can carry you through the day. J Crew has some great boyfriend sweaters at budget friendly prices – did you know that their cashmere sweaters are made with the same wool as Loro Piana? Psst – 25% off the regular price today with the code “SHOPNOW”.
I found this turtleneck in a nondescript little store in Florence and it is my all time fave. Super lovely inexpensive holiday treasure. Ridunculously thick too…purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
The best thing about cashcash is that there are so many options available, at many price points. Did you know that J.Crew’s cashcash is made out of the same fine material as Loro Piana? (click the blue to shop J. Crew’s cashmere shop). And Joe Fresh sells cashcash sweaters for $40! So layer layer layer and purrrrrrr all day!
Not for nothing but a condo in the city does not include snow shoveling.
Mother jeans, Burberry vest, Rocco P. for Barneys boots, Hermes belt, Chanel 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.
OOOOPS! These long weekends can really confuse a girl! I totally overlooked that yesterday was Friday, which is normally Finance & Fashion Fridays on reverse commuter.com. So, let’s pretend it doesn’t matter just for today!
Glenn Murphy, CEO of Gap Inc. clocked in a modest $9.7 million compensation in 2011, a 63.3% jump from 2010 – that is what I call a STELLAR YEAR OF JEANS & T-SHIRT SALES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GO J. Crew GO….the photography and bookings director of Harper’s Bazaar (love that mag) just jumped ship over to J. Crew as V.P. of Brand Design. The building momentum of J. Crew makes me think this company is preparing to launch big things. Bigger than their current coo of manufacturing their cashmere sweaters at the same plant as Loro Piana in Italy – which, by the by, is HUGE considering the cost of a J.Crew cashmere sweater is a fraction of a fraction of the cost of Loro cash-cash, (and let’s face it – it all comes from the same type of goat!!).
Tommy Hilfiger is inspiring!!!!!! He started his business in High School, chipping in $150 with a friend of his to buy 20 pairs of bell-bottom jeans and selling them to schoolmates. Last year Tommy Hilfiger Inc. had $5.6 BILLION in sales, world wide. Obviously his line has expanded. 🙂
I love this quote of Tommy’s, in fact I have it on my desk –
