Simkhai Spring 2018 NYFW & A Party Too!

Jonathan Simkhai presented his Spring 2018 Collection on Saturday at Skylight Clarkson Square in New York City, as part of NYFW.


Pastels, light breezy chambrays, lacework cascading through delicious black, cream and navy dresses – yup, that is still my fave color.  Rose jumpsuits, pinstripes and black strappy dresses, and a one sleeved ruffly top that I have actually dreamt about for the past two nights, it is just that perfect.


The Collection had a strong softness, a romantic element (the models hair and makeup was magical) that celebrated the strength of femininity.  Ruffles, diagonal cut skirts, lace and denim all combined for a show not to be missed.

Simkhai also collaborated with Reebok and brought back the Hi Top, originally sported by none other that Jane Fonda in her workout videos!  


This time round the Reebok Hi Tops are catering to the Simkhai collection.  Lace, soft blue and rose colored complimenting the distressed denim and various other bananas-good pieces Simkhai sent down the runway.

  * Full disclosure, the runway was actually a square but the gorgeous clothes were still sent “down”. *


When I started reversecommuter I had two personal goals.  One was to go to NYFW.  Jonathan Simkhai has invited me three times (so far) and it means the world to me.  Undeniably I am a mad fan for his clothing, but what is truly incredible is the person he is, he is THE example of the getting what you deserve.  


But wait, there’s more.  After the show, Jonathan Simkhai had an after party, held at Made Hotel.  An incredibly, appropriately gorgeous crowd complete with crazy beautiful djs, custom cocktails and a phenomenally powerful happy vibe. 


But don’t take my word for it, read all about it in Vogue!

Beach and palm trees one day, snow drifts taller than me the next.  OLE!

oleBest way to beat the winter blahs is to continue the brilliant hues of the tropics. ¬† ¬†House of Holland’s brilliant purple jersey sweatshirt¬†begs for a drink with an umbrella in it:

Old Man Winter get ready for a pop of color and a show of leg!  Wear this sunshiny yellow skirt from J Crew with a turtleneck, a jean jacket and a simple tall boot to completely shock the cold!

Wear a sweater to keep warm but brighten up the outfit with¬†Jonathan Simkhai’s multicolor sweater,delivering¬†a hint of blue sky no matter what is going on outside!

Better than an extra large dose of vitamin D (although reversecommuter highly recommends that as well!).

Things Are Looking Up!

That was the view from the W Hotel Boston‘s rooftop.

reversecommuter¬†had the pleasure of doing Tara Stiles‘ yoga class, on the ROOFTOP of the W Hotel Boston (cool right?!).

You don’t even know cool until you take The Yoga Rebel’s¬†yoga class, on the rooftop of the W Hotel in Boston, listening to funky tunes, bending your body into contortions and being a rooftop warrior while watching planes fly by, all the while drooling over Tara’s UBER fab striped pants & cow face pose tank which she designed for REEBOK.

reversecommuter was barely able to contain herself and not start online shopping on her iphone while on her yoga mat I was SO in love with this outfit -the pants sadly are not available, but the tank is mine!  OMMMMMMMM!

Street Cred Mama

Cool factor seeps out of my pores daily.

I live in the suburbs.  Not cool.   I am a mother of three, (that part is ABSOLUTELY REALLY COOL), but being a mama means that daily there is a potential that I could be dealing with all kinds of scary gross bodily things, from other bodies!  Boogers & Poop РNot cool.

bo10

That is why when I stumble upon something really genuinely cool and hip, a really big young thang smile spreads across my face.

boa

Bodega in Boston is responsible for my latest smile.

It is not a easy store to find, or get into, but once in you will have a ridiculously hard time deciding on any one pair of shoes, or remembering that you live in the burbs. ¬†Bodega is filled with color, style and cuts in running shoes that your imagination hasn’t even come up with yet.

Rap beats fill the room, rich beautiful wood coats the walls, complete with an old English library ladder on wheels to reach the bags and hats way up high.  The clientele is understated in that manner that screams to everyone else that the cool quota has been reached.  Like in a Pharell manner when he was just in the Nerds.

And yet when reversecommuter squeals really loudly “I just had a major Cinderella moment” they all just stop and smile knowingly. ¬†‘Cause I am cool. ¬†And so are my awesome new kicks.

Alicia Keys just signed a deal with Reebok to design a line, and as a celebration she performed a private concert in Miami for Reebok execs Saturday night!

Granted Alicia has designed shoes for Reebok (click here to buy a pair), this new deal is a direct affilitation with Reebok’s Live with Fire focus (click here to learn more).
