The knit pant trend a la Chanel and Marc Jacobs was prevalent on the runway, as were bullhorns for a rambunctious closing in the form of a fashion protest!

Now Stuart is going for #ROCKROLLRIDE über fashion-focused wild abandon weekend away gorgeousness in the form of a video directed by Julia Restoin Roitfeld, a model and daughter of Carine, former editor of Vogue Paris and absolute fashion muse.  Poppy Delevingne, sister of model of the moment Cara, and Dylan Penn, model and daughter of the ultimate Princess Bride, Robin Wright, star in the video.  reverse commuter is beyond LOVING this video, the fashion, the music, the editing, it all just works seamlessly, barely noticeable is that you are being sold a pair of boots!

Design your very own pair of the Lowland online here, and obsess over the video all day long – you are very welcome.

Pack a picnic, including a flute and a bottle of champs, wear amazing boots, throw in a little fringe, and make your own version of the video this weekend!

Iman, reversecommuter and Shoes!

Last time I hung out with Iman (how fun is that as a sentence?!?!  click here to revisit), she made a point of apologizing for her choice of shoes.  “It is always about the shoes…except today, for medical reasons.”

Well said Iman…(insert sympathy shot here)….

Suddenly I find myself in the land of forbidden heels, as in reversecommuter is forbidden to wear heels.  I KNOW!  IT’S DOWN RIGHT CRUEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (it’s just a running injury but it does affect shoe selection)

Pretty decent reason to pull out the over the knee boots.  Lemons, lemonade, yaddah yaddah!

J Brand jeans, Fiorini + Baker boots, Boy London flannel houndstooth shirt (warm option instead of a sweater).
