So I guess I am officially hooked on Rachel Roy and Rachel Rachel Roy. The quality of both lines can’t be beat. This outfit is an example of wearing the two lines together. This Rachel Rachel Roy Aphrodite Top is great because it can be rolled into a ball and doesn’t wrinkle. I tested it on a recent vacation! You can wear it under a jacket for work and then you are ready for a party later! These Rachel Roy wool slim pants are made of the most beautiful fabric, too, with impeccable detailing. There is a wonderful leopard print finish – in the lining! When I met Rachel Roy for an interview, she told me fabrics are of great importance to her. Even in her Rachel Rachel Roy line, I can tell! Since I am such an expert now, I have a sizing tip: Rachel Roy is cut very generously, so you can go down a dress size, but for Rachel Rachel Roy, order your true size or even go up one size.
Top: Rachel Rachel Roy The Aphrodite Top, now $49, or if one shoulder is not your thing, see Rachel Rachel Roy Top, The Mariposa Cowl Neck Short Sleeve Draped Tie, $65, in a similar color.
Jacket: Black Leather Blazer, no longer available. This Forzieri Women’s Black Italian Leather Blazer, $789 is similar
Bracelets: My own vintage and costume mix. I got the idea from these Mixology NYC Cassandra Square Bangles, $35 for thick and $50 for a trio of skinny ones!
Handbag: Zac Posen, no longer available. This Z Spoke Zac Posen Zac Sack Shoulder Bag, is now $367.50
Shoes: Charlotte Ronson Hayworth Studded Heels, no longer available. These classic Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Sandals $795 are a great investment.
Hair: Sasoon Salons
