Winter 2015 will go down in the record books.  Snow Snow and more Snow!

Getting sick of wearing dark blacks & greys?  Why not embrace the white stuff?

Mix up the wardrobe and sport Winter White.  Who knows, it might work as reverse psychology and brighten things up!  Just be sure to add one colorful element – if nothing else, they will be able to find you in the snow!!

O.W.O. Turtle What?

O.W.O. (One Weekend Outfit) is all about a conundrum of mine…

Why is it called a turtleneck?

Granted it delivers warmth but why the testudine reference?  What does the rolled neck sweater style have to do with a hard shelled slow moving turtle?

And do not even get me started on all the lumps & bumps that come seemingly attached to  sweaters!!

 

How do you say CashCash in Italian?

When would there be a better time to oooooh and awwwwwww over cashcash than during yet ANOTHER snow storm?!  (click here for a cashcash explanation/definition)

reversecommuter went to Italy and discovered an incredible jewel…Chianti Cashmere.

Nora Kravis came to the Chianti region from the US, over 35 years ago, and luckily for all of us, she and the cashmere goats settled in the most beautiful hills in a rustic farmhouse, and created “the Louis Vuitton of cashmere”.

reversecommuter is the ridiculously lucky owner of quite a few pieces from Chianti Cashmere (quelle surprise!) and I can vouch for the luxurious softness of their scarves, blankets and wraps.  Click here to shop!  (what a gorgeous phrase that is!)

Chianti Cashmere just gave their website a major overhaul – which in itself is amazing as Nora was over in Hong Kong at an international convention then jetted over to Iran and Kashmir to educate the farmers on sustainable cashmere practices.

Oh, and did I mention the U.S. government contracts that she is working on in regards to sustainable farming.  Nora = Superwoman…and I am not just saying that because I LOVE her cashmere!
