It took me a while to process how I felt about RACHEL Rachel Roy. There wasn't anything to dislike about it, but the collection just didn't seem very cohesive to me. I couldn't find an obvious common theme that carried throughout the line to make it really stand out. I was confused - it happens. So I had to break it down and study every look individually.
Turns out, this may be the collection I identify with the most. The characteristic the outfits share isn't a particular color or pattern or silhouette - it's a lifestyle and attitude. It's all city chic. It's essentially the same person, styled for difference occasions. She's going to wear that orange jumpsuit for a night out with the girls, then throw on these fabulous trousers for work the next morning. And she likes hats (me too).
I get it. I dig it. I want most of it.
