Needles, Eggs, Roses & Stripes

Day started with a double dose of cortisone shots – big needle for each foot – as a preemptive approach to Monday’s Boston Marathon (psychosomatic healing works for wimps!)…

needlesThen home on doctor’s orders to put my bandaged feet up, just relax and smell the proverbial pre-race roses…

Never one to actually sit in one place for more than 5 minutes…my plan was to boil up a bunch of eggs, gather up the banditos and have them sparkle, tie-dye and create some fab Easter eggs…

stripes

Stomach flu has derailed the plans.  Very sick little banditos in the casa.  Nothing but popsicles and apple juice on the horizon.  Poor babies.  Rumor has it the Easter Bunny is shopping overtime online (while resting her feet) to bump up the Easter basket fillings…

Mother Nature, game on!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

FINALLY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!  Can you hear the cork popping?

Neiman Marcus announced strong profits – must be a relief in this economy that they found a buyer (click here to read about the crazy cash rich Canadians!).

Milan Fashion Week has brought the big dogs onto the runway – Prada, Gucci, Fendi, Max Mara and DSquared to name a few impressive names!  Next up Paris…

Speaking of Fendi (reversecommuter is LOVE LOVE LOVING the furry fabulousness of Fendi’s Fall Collection), the fashion house has opened a palatial palazzo in Milano.  This is a great move as the flagship in Rome is less than awesome.  I was recently in Rome and was SO excited to go get myself a little furry piece of deliciousness and was so disappointed with the store and selection.  Mental note to self – next trip go North to Milan!

Hope you have a stylishly spectacular weekend – slap on heels to go buy the grocs & mimosas for absolutely no reason!

 

No Shorts in January

But absolutely okay to keep wearing them through the fall.  The mornings are brrrrr cold but the day heats up so just add a layer or two…

(it is SO cold in comparison to the heatwave I was enjoying in Europe – but happy to be back blogging!)

Max Mara makes this top, and every couple of years I replace them.  Light enough for the warmer months, and one of my fave layering pieces in the winter.  Click here to get some.
