Tropical Polish

It is snowing again. Dumping obscene amounts of snow across New England. Boston’s suburbs are blanketed, school is shut down and the record books are quivering with delight at the new heights reached with the freezing cold white stuff.
reversecommuter could choose to wax on about Snowmageddon 2015, but instead I’ve chosen to zero in on tropical nail Polish offerings.

What’s better than a brilliantly cute named, beach friendly OPI nail polish to take the brrrr out of February?

Isn’t it amazing the power of a good pedicure? Practically transports you to a beach!

Full Disclosure – reversecommuter has escaped the snow for the next couple of weeks…and brought the polish for touch ups!

Fur Snow Repeat

Even in the after glow of the Pats Superbowl Win (YAYZIES!!!!), the snowstorm that is currently dumping mega inches of white stuff is affecting my fashion thoughts.

Winter freakin’ wonderland chez moi

 

Trending in the mind of reversecommuter today…Fur Boots.  Mukluks with sass if you will.

Manola Blue Wedge Boot

 

Manola blue fox wedge boot over at Gorsuch (who doesn’t squeal out loud when that catalogue arrives?!) is beyond description.  Navy.  Fur. Boots.  !!!!!!!

Maybe it is the Canadian in me but I couldn’t not include Manitoba Mukluks in this list.  The Tall Wrap Mukluk with rabbit fur is a little more budget friendly but still furry and fabulous.

OMEM

For the Faux Fans how about this $45 deal for faux mink mukluks?

Now if you will excuse me, three awesomely mischievous children just DARED to challenge me to a snowball fight!

 

 

 

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…

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.

Snow Day!

This is what my reality is today…

So in between building snowmen and making cocoa, obviously reversecommuter is going to do a little pre-vacation planning…

Happy Snow Day!

How do you say CashCash in Italian?

When would there be a better time to oooooh and awwwwwww over cashcash than during yet ANOTHER snow storm?!  (click here for a cashcash explanation/definition)

reversecommuter went to Italy and discovered an incredible jewel…Chianti Cashmere.

cc7

Nora Kravis came to the Chianti region from the US, over 35 years ago, and luckily for all of us, she and the cashmere goats settled in the most beautiful hills in a rustic farmhouse, and created “the Louis Vuitton of cashmere”.

reversecommuter is the ridiculously lucky owner of quite a few pieces from Chianti Cashmere (quelle surprise!) and I can vouch for the luxurious softness of their scarves, blankets and wraps.  Click here to shop!  (what a gorgeous phrase that is!)

CCA

Chianti Cashmere just gave their website a major overhaul – which in itself is amazing as Nora was over in Hong Kong at an international convention then jetted over to Iran and Kashmir to educate the farmers on sustainable cashmere practices.

cc4

Oh, and did I mention the U.S. government contracts that she is working on in regards to sustainable farming.  Nora = Superwoman…and I am not just saying that because I LOVE her cashmere!
