NYFW a la ‘burbs

There was a pity party happening in the suburbs. 
Fashion blogger and style editor couldn’t go to NYFW. Too many commitments in my other role as a mom. 
Luckily Vogue.com, instagram and the grooviest online fashion feeds allow me the super human combination of being super mama and fashion obsessed blogger all in a day’s work!


Truly all my technological fashion feeds are in direct thanks to Christopher Bailey, the CEO and design director of Burberry.

Christopher changed fashion forever when he permitted a live feed of his fashion show in February 2010.  Before this landmark event fashion shows were strictly for buyers and editors and certainly NOT for suburban moms!

The greatest luxury is being able to watch live video feeds of the shows (hello phenomenal new playlists!!!), translate the fashions into suburban mom-speak and write posts for the blog, news sites and magazine, all while running the corporation of home, husband and children!


This was Alexander Wang’s gift to his New York audience, along with his return to street wear FIERCE collection, British rapper Lady Leshurr.

Seriously add it to your workout playlist NOW!

Other designers tapped it back in the form of nineties artists, Willie Nelson and of course using the appropriately titled “begging for threads” tee hee!

Tune in tomorrow for a posting dedicated to the simplicity of Spring 2016 Fashion.  Imagine that!

E. I. E. I. Woah!

Summer dressing just got a lot easier!

O.W.O. & Summer Hours…

School’s out for summer!

reversecommuter is about to clock some MAJOR Mama hours, so blog posts will be Monday Wednesday and Friday until the banditos are back in school…this shot may very well be the last time I am sitting until September.  But at least my summer uniform is SHAN!  (Click here to revisit the absolute adoration reversecommuter has for this swimwear designer.)

OWO

…unless of course I find myself BURSTING to post about some little bit of fashion that has me completely obsessed!  As in the super amazing trend at Pitti Uomo of terry cloth blazers – can that please translate over for women please?

Now imagine how perfect the world would be with a combination of a SHAN bikini and a terry cloth blazer – who needs a towel?  Straight from the beach to dinner!  (admit it, you were thinking it too…)
