Leather Jacket Replaces The Puffer

“Puffer coats make me look slim”, said no one ever.  Winter coats are necessary, warm and usually wide.

Now that March is here the outerwear options expand instead of your appearance!

Leather jackets layered underneath with cashmere sweaters, scarves and long sleevers allow for a new rotation in the closet – YAHOOOOZIES!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Exactly what I needed – FRIDAY of a loooooong weekend.  While sipping the champs this weekend (as we do) let’s recall and respect Dr. King’s speech and vision.

Levi’s is about to preach and teach!  net-a-porter will launch a limited collection, Levi’s 501 CT, and across the land skinny jeans will weep. The CT in 501 CT stands for Customized and Tapered, which is what most anyone with any sense of style does to their 501s now.

Yup, higher waist, looser fit, and let’s be real people, no other jeans make the a*s look better than a beat up pair of 501s.  Set the reminder on the smart phone and get online to buy early March 2nd.  

Tommy Tommy Tommy.  You all know how I feel about the man, the myth the fashion legend Tom Ford.  Click here for a refresher!

Rumor on the cobblestone streets of Firenze is that Gucci might be bringing Tom back to run the fashion house of all things sexy.  #fingerscrossedfingerscrossedfingerscrossed!

Frida Giannini left early this week, despite a previously announced exit after the Fall 2015 show in February.  reversecommuter thinks that the Fall 2014 Gucci collection was her best but too little too late apparently.

The python, the bit boots, the shearling pink jacket – pity she released-the-beast right at the end.

Enjoy the loooooong weekend – dress up, wow your audience, and yourself!

Not The Boss of Me!

You (winter) cannot make me (reversecommuter) wear a coat anymore!

How low the temperature goes…I am powerless.  😦

IMG_8956

How much snow falls on the ground…again, completely devoid of any say.  (Needless to say, that hurts!)

IMG_8957

Number of snow days where me and the bambinos are trapped indoors – apparently I am powerless on that count too!

IMG_8953

Whether I wear a coat or not...HA! THE DECISION IS MINE ALL MINE!!!!!!

A vest with a couple of layers underneath allow the bobble-head-chauffeurs of the ‘burbs (aka mommies) to bounce around in style even in the deep dark days of winter!

Puffy Fatique

Puffer jackets begin to tire me by February – get it, puffer jacket, tire me, Michelin Man reference?  HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Why not wear what makes you happy in the summer, in the winter?  Jeans, t-shirt = happiness.  Just add a couple of extra layers to deal with the cold.

Layer it on, BIG time!  Cotton long sleeve t-shirt, leather jacket, fur vest.

Boston is getting spanked silly with snow this winter, so a hat is necessary too…

snow1

and BIG SOREL BOOTS (which are a serious nightmare to drive in fyi)!

Now if you will excuse me, I have some serious snow playing to do!

MOTHER jeans, Rick Owens leather jacket, Beaver vest, Prada hat, Sorel Boots.

A Rain Hat & Facebook

Umbrellas are as passe as Facebook.

hatA

Read somewhere that FB was sooooo 2011.  Kinda love that – feel free to use in a sentence.

So get a hat and don’t worry anymore if the wind pops the runner on your umbrella (those are the arms inside the umbrella & yes, I did Wikipedia that one!).

hat1

Burberry hat, Chanel sunglasses, MOTHER jeans…FYI shoes & top came from Zara…KA-CHING!!!!!!!!

Coachella Bella Bottoms

Skinny jeans are fab, no argument.

But once in a while it is fun to mix it up.  Bring on the bell bottoms!

bel2

Just be aware of proportions – identify the waist with shorter jackets, tucked in tops.

bel3

It is guaranteed that there will be bell bottoms at Coachella & Lollapalooza this year (click the blue words to see the line ups for each music festival). So why not start the trending right in the burbs?!

bel6

J Brand jeans, Miu Miu cropped shearling, Equipment shirt, Gucci belt, Lanvin flats, Celine bag, Tom Ford sunglasses.

It’s Coming…

Spring that is.
