Who Do You Love?

Everyone has a favorite designer...or several! My favorite designers fall into a number of categories: 
  • Those in my price range (Target, Zara, Anthropologie, Modcloth)
  • Those that fit me well (Chanel, Kors, Kate Spade)
  • Those whose designs I simply admire (McQueen, Balmain, Rick Owens)
  • Those who inspire me (Norma Kamali, Proenza Schouler, Vivianne Westwood)

Sometimes, though, we can get lucky and find all of the above. Which is why I absolutely love Rachel Roy. A California girl, she launched her line in the spring of 2005, and later, in 2009, her diffusion line RACHEL Rachel Roy at Macy's. I find both her lines to be extremely wearable and fashion forward at the same time. Her designs are comfortable and well made, and, particularly her RACHEL Rachel Roy line, priced in ways that real people can afford. 

My dress and one of my necklaces in this outfit are RACHEL Rachel Roy, purchased off her website, which is user friendly and easily navigable. I like how this zebra dress could be worn alone for a hot date, or be thrown on under a jacket for every day wear. I think it could also end up looking somewhat demure under a simple black cardigan and some pearls. And! The wrap at the waist gives your shape great curves. 

She makes cute jewelry, too! This chunky lucite and chain necklace could go with anything! How about you - who are your favorite designers? Whose designs are you drawn to, and whose do you wear?

  6. @Michele Check out the RR website - I think you will really like her stuff!

  7. @wishful nals Thanks! I've really been enjoying the photos from France on your blog - gorgeous!

  8. I'm drawn to J. Mendel and Chanel, but obviously those guys aren't in my budget. I have a few brands that I know will almost always fit me perfectly: Trina Turk, Milly, Kay Unger, and Tahari.

    Love that zebra dress!

  9. @The Blonde @ Stylish3 Thsoe are good pics! I am currently crushing on a Milly dress right now with a beetle print (I know, it sounds weird. It's cute!)...

    Theat dress is fab! I love how, with the scarf and jacket, it almost looks like a skirt. But on it's own, it would be quite the hot date number!

    I have only one RR piece but I love it!

  11. How did I miss this amazing outfit post. Love your dress and your boots are fierce doll.
