Dumb Down the Price

Celine’s Fall 2014 Collection had a long knit turtleneck that made reversecommuter crumble, drool and stutter.  It was ❤️at first sight…right up to the $2000 price tag.  

  
I justified that it was too limiting a piece for that type of investment.  Point on revelation but I still really, really loved it.  

Fast forward to now.  In the ‘burbs, armed with a rake.

Yeah, that’s pretty much how it feels!

Classy Classic

Classic is in!

That is the message delivered in New York this week by a majority of the presenting designers.

Proenza Schouler rejigged the double breasted blazer, opening their show with a sleeveless jacket wrapped up in a Pussy Galore meets the KFC Colonel’s skinny black bow tie.  Nothing represents classic fashion more than black and white.

Michael Kors is THE gentleman of classic clothing.  His Spring 2016 Collection is clean, forever fashion that glided across the runway and made buyers, editors and fashion lovers drool! The simplest design with the cleanest of lines in the very best of fabrics and colors.

Kors also brought out a bouquet of decadence in brocade floral pieces.  The richness in their design and material is beyond compare, and an investment in his clothing guarantees a healthy roi!

Budget wise Michael Kors also offers a lower priced line, Michael Michael Kors which is always influenced by his ready-to-wear designs.  So these fashions will easily translate into mall shopping!

adidas by Stella McCartney is an all time have of mine, and the Spring 2015 collection thus far is responsible for keeping this love affair going stronger than a January snowmageddon!  Spain’s Garbine Muguruza worked the new separates against Serena Williams.

Nike is all about bright yellow, neon green and pink.

Both Nadal and Serena were perfect models.  How fierce is that dress accompanying those muscles anyway?!?!?  The dress is not yet available through NIKE,  although the arms are attainable…at the gym!

Sharapova’s daring red OZ nike dress with that fantastic open back has single handedly (and back handedly…teehee) answered the what to get for Valentine’s Day question!

Twitter, Instagram and Facebook were all temporarily down today, but happily TennisExpress.com held strong and I was able to “in basket” like a tennis pro!

Last night was a fun night in complete with hair up, glasses on, sitting in front of a fire in my fave Marni sweater, and reversecommuter building a spreadsheet, copying & pasting 146 names into little cells, printing, cutting and folding (must confess a glass of chardonnay was my assistant!), and a final draw occurred….
