O.W.O. City Spitter Style

From beach to city.

spit3Traveling means fashion that rolls up into a suitcase, then rolls out unwrinkled, and works no matter the weather.  Darker colors are always a good idea when a tourist!  James Perse, Alexander Wang, Jonathan Simkhai and Diane von Furstenberg are all masters at this.

Chicago’s Millenium Park has the coolest art installation/fountain, the Crown Fountain, created by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, and funded by a multimillion dollar donation from the Crown Family…thus the name.  It consists of two LED walls that run 1000 videos of a variety of Chicagoans, all of whom were instructed to smile, frown, and then pretend to blow out a candle.

When that happens a spout sprays out a canon of water – much to the delight of anyone close enough to get sprayed!

Beach Bag and Beyond!

reversecommuter is on the beach for the month of July…so really there is no better time to post about finding the perfect beach bag.

Sail bags are obviously on the list (made out of recycled sails) – gorgeous (fyi reversecommuter has it on a very good source that you can now order sail shower curtains CLICK HERE!!!!!)

The $20 L’Occitane straw bag gets me more compliments than I can count – kinda funny as it was originally an accidental purchase.  reversecommuter was buying a few delicious smelling goodies for a friend and asked if I could buy the straw bag that L’Occitane encourages shoppers to use as a basket in the store.

And my summer IT bag was born – as obviously I had to buy one for myself too!

reversecommuter bought a Louis Vuitton “never full” bag five years ago as a diaper bag for baby boy.

EVERYONE has one now which is precisely why I now bring it to the beach.  Sand, lotion, leaky juice box – fine by me.  Unfortunately this thing will last longer than Keith Richards!
