Fashion & Finance Friday!

Friday, you freakin’ rock!

Tom Ford is launching fancy schmancy sneakers for Fall 2014 – sign me up!  Sending a message that the current sporting line obsession of the fashion industry is still going strong.  Prices range from $690 to $990, for sneaks that have been hand made in Italian workshops, where the leather is hand polished for three days for the deep patina.  If cost is a concern for these norm core creations, go for the velvet low tops with the modest $690 price tag.


reversecommuter LOVES all things Tom Ford (click here to revisit the love), and wonders when the women’s sneaks will be unveiled…and for how much.


DIOR Secret Garden Part 3 has returned to the intoxicatingly beautiful Palais de Versailles.  I love these videos, shot by wonder duo Inez and Vinoodh.


The bags, the dresses, the shoes, Depeche Mode still singing and OBVIOUSLY the palace and grounds – c’est règal pour les jeux!  reversecommuter is loving the tease Dior has put up on Instagram:

If possible drink pink bubbles while wearing pink at some point this weekend – it’s good to have goals!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Hellllloooooooo Friday!

Facebook has it’s day in finance today – it’s IPO (initial public offering aka it’s stock is listed and goes live today) is rumored to potentially raise $16.4 BILLIO .  Maybe Mark Zuckerberg will buy himself a new hoodie and a pair of jeans to celebrate…that dude needs a personal shopper…just saying’.

Barney’s New York is going to relaunch their website on Monday – totally renovated and apparently easier e-commerce capabilities (I can honestly say I have never had any shopping problems on that site!).

Chanel held it’s Cruise 2013 fashion show at the Palais de Versailles this past Monday – BEYOND DIVINE!!!!!  Karl Lagerfeld is a frickin’ genius, or as a more eloquent individual dubbed him, “The Sun King”. Long Live the Sun King!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mental note – wedge sneakers are here to stay (Isabel Marant, you were so ahead of the pack launching them this Spring!).
