Mom Speak Fashion Translation

Versace’s Fall Couture 2015 was etheral.  The best dressed rockstar fairies ever!

Chanel’s Fall 2015 Couture was terrifically tweedy and fantastically luxe.

But what exactly are moms’ supposed to wear to go pick raspberries?

We deal with runny noses, messy love filled hugs and toppled ice cream cone sticky kisses.  Donatella and Karl don’t really design for these.

reversecommuter adores high end fashion, and loves translating it into everyday speak.  Fashion is fun, not intimidating.  Fall Couture’s message thus far is a softer color palate and a more classic take on clothes.  But it is summer now, so brighten up your outfits with some color and a smile!  Slap on a pair of silk shorts and a tank top, grab a cute pair of sandals and a floppy hat and work that runway of life like nobody’s business!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Holy Toledo what a week – reversecommuter thought it was Friday on Tuesday!!!

Prada is all over the Great Gatsby!  Yet another reason to go see that amazing looking movie – the costumes!  Prada opened an exhibit of the Gatsby costumes at the Soho Prada boutique (reversecommuter knows it well if you need directions!).

40 costumes will be on display until May 12th.  How cool a weekend package would that be – go to NYC, see The Great Gatsby movie then visit the Prada Soho boutique to see the costumes…and maybe squeeze in a little shopping!

THE fashion event of NYC (other than Fashion Week) is the Met Ball, to be held Monday May 6th.  The theme is PUNK and the uber upper class crowd is all in a tizzy as it just isn’t a haute couture style of dress.  Rumor has it the Versace pin number Elizabeth Hurley wore is the type of vibe most will attempt to channel….maybe even in Chanel.  🙂

Have a BRILLIANT & Fashion Filled Weekend – wear some fabulously heeled sandals to go to the groc shop!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Hello End of the Week!

Lord & Taylor logo

Is nothing sacred?  Lord & Taylor’s 5th Avenue flagship store is going to open for business on Thanksgiving!  Let’s hope the Macy’s parade doesn’t drop off it’s employees by float to work a shift or two to compete…

reversecommuter used to live in Toronto, and Sundays were retail non grata days, it was a family day.  Then a couple of retailers fought hard enough and soon Sunday was just another day to hit the stores.  Let’s hope major holidays don’t become a thing of the past!

Coach logo

Coach & The Jones Group both released very positive numbers for Q3 – let’s hear it for the  non-luxury goods sector kicking it!

And now back to luxury…

Versace opened a cool new store, Versace Vibe this past week in SOHO – big BIG party! Dior opened up two STELLAR boutiques in as many weeks – one in Milan and one on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.  Louis Vuitton opened it’s first Brazilian boutique this week.  Alexander McQueen opened it’s first men’s only boutique in London, and there are creative plans to launch new retail for men and women and McQ!

Happy Happy Weekend!
