Fashion & Finance Friday!

Spring has Sprung, and so has the weekend!

reversecommuter’s jaw has hit the floor!  Jeff Bezos’ Amazon has set it’s fashion goal WAY high with news this week that Amazon might be trying to buy net-a-porter.  THAT IS RIGHT, amazon is trying to BUY net-a-porter.com!

The deal has Natalie Massenet’s website of fashion deliciousness valued at 2 BILLION euros.

Massenet chased her dream to be the ultimate online luxury fashion site starting in her apartment (the luscious net-a-porter packaging was stored in her London flat’s bathtub!), and twelve years later sold the company to luxury goods group Richemont for 390 MILLION euros in 2010.

If this deal goes through, Jeff Bezos will truly earn his title as visionary within the business world.  First books, now luxury fashion, online all the time.  Mr. Bezos, reversecommuter is a little bit in awe.

Planning on a little cooking this weekend?  Why not take a recipe from the brand spanking new Bergdorf Goodman cookbook?

Berdorf’s released the cookbook this week and the food ideas are nearly as scrumptious as a visit to the second floor shoe boutique – trust me, it is THE closest thing to heaven!

The recipes include a ton of yummy cocktail ideas (WHOOP WHOOP!),

loads of salads – ladies who lunch on the 7th floor of Bergdorf’s LIVE for salads, salivate-worthy fish and meat entrees and desserts that include butterscotch brownies – I mean COME ON!!!!!!!!!

Salmon_v1-350x423

Needless to say, you can buy it on Amazon for a mere $25.

Put the boots in the back of the closet, slip into the strappy sandals and pop the champs – it’s Friday!!!!!!

Inspiring NOT Stealing.

When I go get these done…

It’s Essie Tour de Finance.

Anywho, when I find myself stuck at the spa I notice that I actually take the time to see the details in a magazine.  Which leads me to adding to this little pile of ripped bits of inspiration.  Kinda like a hardcopy Pinterest board.

It isn’t stealing if it inspires me right?

ps I find that a decent fake cough almost completely covers up the ripping noise.  Just saying.

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Benvenuto Friday!!!!!  WHOOP WHOOP WEEKEND!!!!

Oooh La La! Quel dommage!  Luxury brands are being robbed in a tres grand manner!  Chanel, Celine and Dior’s Parisian boutiques have all been victims of robbery this week.  The bandits drove a stolen Audi into the front window of the Chanel boutique and stole approximately 25 bags.  The Dior boutique was robbed in the early hours of Wednesday morning and lost over $100,000 worth of inventory.

Have you played with the PORTER Magazine app yet?  It is dangerously fun!!!!!  Download the net-a-porter app (free) and then in the settings hit the Scan PORTER Magazine option. Then the real fun begins – scan the pages, hit the “concierge” option that pops up and shop your happy little heart out!  layAR technology is powering the interactive print technology and flipping through a magazine is never going to be the same.

This has been keeping reversecommuter quite busy while recovering from the Boston Marathon this week (apparently so much so that I need to charge my phone!!)  Theraputic retail therapy – LOVE!!!

Slap on something pretty, make an effort to feel pretty and believe it all weekend!

But if you download the app “I Am Porter”, you might just give her a run for her money!
