Weak.  Again.  🙂

reversecommuter is powerless against JOSA Tulum.

The black and white rustic – why yes please.  The navy and white striped deep v halter – obviously.  The hot pink long sleever – um, yeah, I TOTALLY need that too!

JOSA Tulum is THE ONLY boutique I hit when on vacation here – I know, that is one loaded statement!

After a loooong and arduous day on the beach, a stroll into JOSA Tulum invites you into a rainbow of design, color, style and creativity.  Urban beach cool lingering ever so quietly amongst the palms and salty sea air.

One other tidbit – JOSA Chiquita has launched and OF COURSE reversecommuter had to buy a bunch of it for my daughter.  Only worry I have now is how I am going to get her out of it – complete loveathon!!!!!!!!!

Checkmate!

Perhaps it is my background – working in the financial sector makes a girl yearn for glencheck and houndstooth patterns, especially when considering her fall wardrobe, even though it is DEFINITELY still summer.

Black and white checks are huge this season, but the really great news is that classic patterns never go out of style.

British Vogue just profiled this outfit from Marks & Spencer…Yes, I did just use British Vogue AND Marks & Spencer in a sentence!

Net-a-Porter has some fab options such as this fun TIBI sweatshirt.  FYI the word sweatshirt has been altered this season, think style piece not ripped old grey thing put on when needing comfy clothes!

10 Things I LOVE about TOM FORD

reversecommuter has a SERIOUS man crush.

It’s nothing new, ever since Tom Ford was the lead designer for Gucci, I have had a mad love for this sexy talented gorgeous man.

Update, Gucci is happy with Frida Giannini – as are a lot of Gucci clients (me included).

Now back to Tom.  PURRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

So #1 was his Gucci role.  #2 is his lipstick – seriously how can you pull out any other tube. LUXURIOUS.

#3 is his eyewear.  Julianne Moore was quoted in a recent Elle Decor as saying his reading glasses were one of the things she could not live without.  (click the blue to read).  I am right there with that uber fab red head, and I don’t even wear reading glasses, yet…but that doesn’t mean I can’t stock pile a pair or two!

#4 would be the black booties carried at Bergdorf.  BE-YOND.   Salivate for yourself, click here.

#5 – #10 are from his current Collection.  Specifically looks # 7, 10, 12, 13 & 16.

I cannot pull the pictures from his website (oh, Tom, maybe we can work on sharing a little?)  but click here in a  comfy chair and be prepared to salivate!  Leopard, leather, tassels, rich delicious purples, patterns that literally vibrate with movement, sequins and lace and make up OH MY!!!!!!!!

IKAT is way cool.

Seriously cool.

Cool as in Thakoon IKAT jumpsuit (found here at Barneys)

Cool. Cool. HellaCool.

Cool as in Theysken’s Theory IKAT silk maxi dress (found here at net-a-porter.com)

Not many fabric patterns can ease past the seasonal barriers that limit most.  Think leather, skins, wool.

Case and point, here I am in early August lounging by the pool in a maxi a la IKAT, and yet it is on the menu for fall fashion from numerous designers.
