Snow Flake!

Seriously, a sense of humor, cute winter accessories and a solid supply of champs are all absolute necessities when buried under 4+ feet of snow (and more coming later this week!!).

A fur pompom is THE hat this season, from the yoga studio to the grocery store to the school bus drop off, the pouffy fluffy pompom has been sported on tons of yummy mummies.  Eugenia Kim, the milliner mistress, allows her pompom to speak for itself.

With snowdrifts taller than me at 5’9″ that brilliant colored pompom is a hugely appealing selling feature!

Canada Goose jackets seem to be more visible than the actual honking feathered geese themselves.  The hat on the other hand is less recognizable but fabulous and WARM!

Who can’t love a hat that is furry and comes in hot pink, among other choices?

Rolling the perfect snowball takes more than just skill.  The perfect furry mittens need to help mold the arsenal.  Moncler’s leads the pack and knows just how to handle the packing snow too.  reversecommuter’s favorite winter activity is the surprise snowball attack as the children get off the school bus #mommieshavefuntoo!!!

No snow day is complete without a pair of metallic moon boots!

This classic boot has withstood the test of time, let’s see how these babies handle a toboggan ride!

Blinding snow is no match for Fendi’s cats eye glasses made of acetate.

Now get out there and embrace winter…I will be right here making sure the champs is perfectly chilled, hot chocolate is so overrated!

12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits Conclusion!

Merry Christmas Eve!  Time to bang out the last 4 days of reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits (or Holiday Party Outfits, whatever floats your festive boat!).

On the 9th day of this list we all wore Fur Tops.  Nothing says snuggle better than fur or faux.  Moncler offers furry pockets…

Alice and Olivia’s furry vest would be a spectacular statement piece that would be magical at Christmas dinner (and then equally phenomenal throughout the winter with jeans for GNO or date night!).

Day 10 is dedicated to the onesie – specifically Jumpsuits.

Tibi’s gold jumpsuit delivers the ultimate Holiday spectacular – nothing missing but a bow!

The 11th Day of reversecommuter’s Christmas Holiday Outfit list is a White Christmas.  White is a color that is taking winter by storm (are you appreciating all these double entendres?!?).

White pants equal luxury.  White pants are worn by someone who doesn’t cook all day and wear the meal, or get drooled on, or dirty little hands wiped on, or dog paws jumped on.  Gucci’s white pants really are the quintessential luxury piece, and on sale – yayzies!!!!!

The final item on the list is all about tunics.  Beaded, bright and beautiful!  Pucci’s beautiful blue tunic and Missoni’s stripey poncho tunic are beyond delicious!!!!

Wear it on top of a gorgeous skinny silk or wool pant (see directly above) then enjoy it on a beachy vaca!

I want to wish you and yours the very best for the Holidays, and a very Merry-Well-Dressed-Christmas!

Furry, Short & Pumpkins

reversecommuter is toying with the idea of boots.  Denying the arrival of fall is useless, it is getting cold, feet need to be adorned in an assortment of leather loveliness.  Still in complete, mad, deep love with my Celine boots but there is nothing wrong with adding a new pair or two this season.

Variety is key to happiness after all.

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Greetings to the Friday!  All hail the Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Maybe it’s because school is out and children are on my mind but here are a couple of interesting items children focused:

Moncler Enfant is going to be a major push for Moncler – and really, is there anything more adorable than an itty bitty puffy jacket?!?!?

Unknown-1

Vince has announced Vince Kids and the design house is going to try to translate the simple lines and minimalist vibe into pint size adorableness.

And now back to adult land!

Jason Wu’s fall ad campaign features Christy Turlington and it is GORGEOUSNESS reincarnate!  reversecommuter is slightly obsessed with the red dress, and needless to say still hearts The Wu big time (click here for more).

christy-turlingtons-jason-wu-campaign

Neiman Marcus has filed for an IPO (as suspected here….)  should be interesting to see what they value the shares at…perhaps a little retail therapy over at Needless Mark-up is in order (to help the valuation process of course….)

Enjoy the weekend – pull the tags of the new stuff, don’t save it – wear it and celebrate with a glass of champs!!!!!!!!

Sun, Sorels & Sleds

My family.  Yummmy!

And they let me dress them, because they know I love all things fashion.

I am SO a fan of Canada Goose outdoor clothing. Jackets, hats, puffer jackets, vests. Bright pink, yellow, black, blue, turquoise, white. With fur, without. Anyway you choose, deliciousness!  This hat is uber cute and warm too – nothing better than that combo in January in Boston!
I have it on good authority Canada Goose is a family owned company, third generation running it now. Reinvented itself by sending out complimentary jackets to the crews of movies filming up in Toronto. Smart!  (don’tcha love a little scoop?)  Click the blue to visit Canada Goose.

This is in my backyard.  Great park for snowshoeing, tobogganing, running and hiking, and renting the fantastic party space too!house

reversecommuter is always waxing on about investing in good pieces.  My jacket is a perfect example, and I am a total wimp in the winter, so it was a smart investment too.  Moncler.  Click the blue to visit and drool!
sillysnowA fabulous fashion friend of mine exclaimed that it is easier to drive in 6 inch Jimmy Choos than it is in these Sorels.  TOTALLY AGREE!!!!!

snowsuit But if it is cold and wet outside, save the Choos and keep the feet warm.  Click the blue to check out Sorel website.sorels
