Saint Laurent’s Lace-Up Saddle Pump (on sale fyi!!) -pair this puppy up with a french stocking and a slit skirt (aka Day 5 on reversecommuter’s 12 Days of Christmas Party Outfits) and Santa will be one happy red suited elf!

Tassels, really need I say more?

Charlotte Olympia’s Fantastic Dolly Suede Fan Tassel Pump is a phenomenally fun shoe – what says party season better?

Fringe is another relative of the flirty dangly-bits family and needs to be in the party wardrobe this season!  Aquazzura makes a sexy beast of a shoe any day of the week, so add a fringe and mistletoe Ho-Ho-Ho!!!!!!!

2nd day of reversecommuter’s 12 days of Outfits for Christmas Parties / Holiday Parties (whichever floats your seasonal boat), is dedicated to plumage.

Feathers make any outfit frivolous and fabulous!

Easy example is this DKNY skirt, add a white t-shirt, jean jacket and a pair of nude pumps – perfection.

Lela Rose’ feather embellished blouse is a perfect topper for the season, and works with anything to take it up a notch, even a pair of plain dark colored pants.

Lanvin’s gorgeous feathered riding hat makes me believe in all Christmas magic – pretty please Santa I have been the perfect combination of naught & nice!

Speaking of lovely feathery embossed Lanvin lovelies, take a looksie at this dress and it’s feathery trimmed swishiness!  Yes Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enough about me and my Santa list (ongoing in it’s development as it is), let’s focus on the feather adorning Elizabeth and James’ blazer.  Fa La La just got bumped by OOOH LALA!

Lest we forget the original site of ostrich feathered adornment, get a load of Sophia Webster’s ostrich sandals – purrrrrrrrrrrrr or whatever an ostrich says.

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!
