Daisy Dukes For Mamas?

Nope, not a typo. ¬†And not a blog posting on milfs either… just a mommyblogger’s love of fashion and the necessity for fashion to fit life.

As in Daisy Dukes that aren’t quite too short, but still qualify ūüôā ¬† ¬†Mamas need to bend over ALL the time! ¬†Click here to find a great on sale selection at Rag & Bone.

Gotta go get it and the wilting veggies home…

Goldilocks and the 3 White Jeans

ah, my ubiquitous search for the perfect white jeans…reversecommuter has been giving these near impossible perfect white jeans considerable thought. ¬†(see how my eyes are shut – serious concentration level!)

white3

First up was Rag & Bone as my love for their jeans is a proven, long lasting denim affair (click here for proof)

Rag & Bone Skinny whites

Rag & Bone Skinny whites

Alas Rag & Bone’s skinny white jeans offered up for Spring 2014 had¬†too much lycra, not enough denim.

MOTHER denim white jeans are super pretty and reversecommuter LOVES MOTHER!!!!!!!!!! Seriously there are a like a kazillion postings to prove it so click here or here or here).  Unfortunately I cannot find a retailer that sells the patchie in mirror mirror (uh hello, cuter names only found on OPI bottles!!), so alas I will reserve my too-hot-too-cold-just-yummy-oatmeal-metaphor comment for these lovelies!

AG white capri rollups

AG white capri rollups

Never one known for her patience (understatement), reversecommuter bought a pair of AG stilt rollup white jeans that are just right!  As a rule of thumb reversecommuter ALWAYS buys up a size in white jeans because as unattractive as camel toe is, white jean camel toe is just that much more FUGLY!

Cropped WHAT?!?

crop1

Memo to designers – Not all women’s stomachs are created equal.

crop3

Some are in their early twenties and have washboard six packs. Others are a teeny bit older and have had some babies, and are now the proud owners of tummy-Shar-Peis.

crop8

Hence the Spring fashion conundrum concerning crop tops & the need for Fashion Translation!

crop2

There are some wondrous collections out this spring, most of which are offering crop tops. What’s the owner of a muffin top to do?

crop10

Option One Рthe layered look.  This is a great option for Spring (and almost Spring), as layering is key to survival when it is freezing in the morning then scorching in the afternoon.

crop7

Wear a longer tee short or blouse underneath the crop. But don’t tuck!

Option Two – ¬†Tune in tomorrow…… ¬†ūüôā

Not The Boss of Me!

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

IMG_8951

How low the temperature goes…I am powerless. ¬†ūüė¶

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!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

F-R-I-D-A-Y Where Have you Been All This Week?!?!?!?

That is a lotta cheese to lose!  reversecommuter is referring to the Q1 results announced for JC Penny.  $ 348 MILLION Рneed I point out that a Quarter is a mere 4 month period of time!!!!!

Rue La La partnered with Boston Children’s Hospital for a PHENOMENAL fundraising event last night in Boston.

rue11

With a spectacular view of the city and the harbor, models showed off the best in jeans, t-shirts, handbags and shoes from designers such as Hermes, Bottega Venetta, Celine, Tom Ford, Gucci, Chanel, Louboutin, Balenciaga and more!

Nothing like a pile of orange boxes and a bevy of Cha-Cha to make a girl smile!  (click here for the Cha-Cha reversecommuter relationship).

reversecommuter was beyond excited to be invited to the event, dubbed “Rue With A View”, and WOW did it ever live up to it’s uber clever name! ¬†Special Thanks to ST!

rue1

Shopping is rarely a challenge for me, but when the proceeds are directed towards aiding sick children, my shopping skills really shone!  Luckily there were some fab Tom Ford sunglasses to help!!

rue7

Enjoy the weekend – dress up and wear the special stuff!!!

Doctor’s Orders

I am truly lucky.  Only injury as a result of the Boston Marathon (click here for more) is a neuroma on my foot (aka really angry nerves as a result of a lot of miles).  Needless to say, my heart goes out to all of those affected.

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?!
