Girl Crush: Rachel Roy

Have you met Rachel Roy?

I must admit, two months ago, I had no idea who she was. That is, until I stumbled upon a few of her beautiful dresses while wasting time at Macy's... I tried some on, drooled, took pictures and sent to my friends and Boyfriend for their approval, all of whom told me they loved the dress but reminded me that I'm trying to save money... so, I have yet to purchase one butttttt I don't plan on being able to say that much longer.

In fact, you might remember this little temptation of mine:

Burlesque Dress - $129.00

Basically, since I "met" her, designer Rachel Roy has been the one that got away. It's as if she took me out, we had a great night and then she never called me back... that elusive departure from my life has locked me in a full-blown obsession. I wonder who she is, what her Spring collection is like and who in God's name does she style?

This online stalking isn't helping to curb the obsession either. Her designs are trendy, fun, youthful, artful, demure and sexy and I pretty much want all of them...especially because they're the perfect price range of a little more expensive so you know it's good stuff but not so exorbitant that you are selling eggs to buy a dress.

I mean, how about these apples? Especially with the special scenarios I envision as I look at them (you're welcome)!

Porcupine Ring
Because I like my rings like I like my boyfriends: cute and protective.


Kimi Sparkle Pump
Because the heel takes Dorothy to a whole new level (seriously, click the link and check the heel)


V-Neck Oversized Dress

Because, sometimes nothing is sexier than looking like you spent last night with a boy and didn't get much sleep and you really can't be bothered to put on much to grab your coffee the next day at the cafe around the corner from his place (besides, this feeds into my American Apparel fetish quite well).


Slick Trench
Because Nancy Drew's look is darling but in dire need of an update.


Gold Spike Ring
Because it is a dash of bad ass for your finger.


Low Draped Top
Because the color and style makes me swoon, as does the model's bun.


The Michelle Dress
Because often sexiness is a dish best served conservatively.


The Rucksack Trouser
Because Women do Menswear better than the Men.


So I could go on and on and a nutshell- she's definitely worth a look and I can't wait to sport whatever piece I choose, I'll be sure to show it off on here.

Here's how to find her:

I think I like the slick trench and the michelle dress best =) But yes, I also love RR and also own nothing from her! Do you read the(chloe)conspiracy? She is always having the best RR items in her outfits!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I must tell you, I am OBSESSED with Portland, OR!!! Only I have never actually been there. I moved to WA in July 2009 and it is my goal to make it to Portland sometime in the next year. You'll have to tell me all the great places to go.
