Smoldering Shoulders

One of THE biggest and funnest trends for Spring 2016 is shoulder baring clothing.


Jonathan Simkhai Off Shoulder Knit Dress $495

The simplest piece in any wardrobe is a great dress.


Rosie Assoulin $2695

Insert the shoulder baring option et Voila –  Sexy Spring Style!!


See by Chloe Off-the-Shoulder Maxi Dress $515

Budgets need not beware.


MICHEAL Michael Kors $89 @ Nordstrom

The trend is delivered on both sprectrums of the dollar sign.  #rejoicingbudgets

Purchase a shoulder showing top NOW!  Add jeans or a great pair of shorts – mine are from H&M, top is from the incredible Tanya Taylor.

Next time you find yourself carrying groceries, working out at SoulCycle or lifting a child – remember to do a couple of extra reps as this style is all about exposing the shoulders!


reversecommuter has left urban civilization, and is headed to Northern Maine (aka Moose country).

What is a nice fashion obsessed girl like me doing in a place like this? Enjoying a little R&R at the lake house of some VERY good friends!

reversecommuter has a speed demon reputation that precedes her up here (last year I was the, ahem, “lucky winner” of a $340.00 speeding ticket!!!).

Thus explaining the flavor of my outfit (I am planning on fooling the local authorities into thinking I am a country gal!)

What better way to say “I am here for the moose hunting” than a cute little See by Chloe dress, (on sale on Zappos – just click here), patent wedges from Prada and a hat devoid of appropriate description or sadly, a link to buy(apologies).

Clearly there will be some very fun postings in the next few days…….

Procrastination at it’s Best

UGH! I need to edit my closet, aka clean it out.  I don’t mind the purge once I am in the actual process, but the mental preparation is exhausting!

What to keep?  What to ditch?  What is the ideal length of time to not wear something where it becomes disposable?  

Tricky at best!  Especially when you invest in designer pieces.  Hate the regret of mistakes.

White tee-shirts – easy peasy – replace every year.

Blazers, jeans, skirts and dresses….so much more of a challenge.

Read a great article today (while procrastinating…)

The only bright part of closet editing is …..Shopping once it is done!  YAY!!!!!!!!!!!  (not too predictable am I?)

My little Spring 2012 wish list, so far…..
