Fashion & Finance Friday!

Polar Vortex and unlimited snow storms will not lessen the level of AWESOMENESS that accompanies Friday!!!!!!!!!!!

OOOH LALA!  Paris Fashion Week has begun and so far so fabulous!  Lanvin delivered reversecommuter’s current favorite collection for Fall 2014, with a sea of luxury, fur, satin and predominantly all in navy blue (my favorite color!!).

Alber Elbez designs are oozing with sex appeal, feminine grace and the structure of a true Parisian fashion house.  Purrrrr!

Isabel Marant brought forth a Mayan influenced patterned in knitwear, as well as military green – which interestingly is quite the trend across most runways for Fall 2014.

H&M delivered it’s very first PFW show and it was rockstar clothing appropriate with plumes of ostrich feathers, lots of leather, studs and thigh-high boots.  Fingers crossed these looks are readily available!

Nicholas Ghesquiere’s inaugural show for Louis Vuitton is scheduled for March 5th, and noone is getting to him before that – la maison du Vuitton est tres calme (which means “quiet” not “calm” in French!!).

reversecommuter is SO curious to see this collection, as Balenciaga’s loss of Nicholas was one that I felt personally!

Chill the champs for Sunday’s Oscars – the red carpet is a fashion watching must that is best accompanied with bubbles!

No lie.  $12 H&M pants.

In a salute to Sharon Stone, the queen of High/Low Fashion – at the 1996 Oscar’s she wore a black Gap turtleneck with a Valentino skirt, and at the 1998 Oscar’s she donned a Vera Wang skirt and a Gap button down (that she borrowed from her husband’s closet!!).

Kind of empowering to mix it up and respect the budget too!
