…Are always better when great shoes are involved!
I’m always proud when I achieve a great bargain, and when the bargain is on shoes the pay off is that much better! My frugal fashionista hunts often drive me to spend hours scouring the racks at T.J. Maxx and Marshals, but (call me old-fashioned) my favorite deals/discounts are those god-sent sale days at Macy’s.When you combine an almost 55% discount plus brands like Material Girl, Rachel by Rachel Roy, and our newest fave- Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s it’s the equivalent of sartorial heaven.
This past weekend by some act of God, I happened to stumble upon one of these divine sales and an associate was kind enough to spot me a 20% coupon. Needless to say, not only did I score the bridal shower gift I originally ventured into the store for, but I also scored two fabulous pair of shoes.
So today, on this manic Monday, I decided to debut my favorite pair- my Material Girl, Alli Platform Pumps. Paired with black skinnies, a silk blouse and my signature shades they not only motivated my morning but won me raving compliments from my co-workers!

Everyone knows her story. A tale of hard work and dedication, Rachel Roy’s career has been one of intern to “it” girl. From her humble beginnings at Rocawear to the launch of her two namesake brands and a collaboration with Jones Apparel Group INC., her climb is one that is envied by every girl who ever dreamed of working in fashion.
I have been a follower of the Rachel Roy brand since it took off in 2005, and have always wanted to sport one of her coveted sophisti-chic looks… but alas, on a poor girl ‘s salary there was no hope in sight- until 2008 that is, when word of the RACHEL Rachel Roy diffusion brand hit the street.
The equally chic/stylish line hit Macy’s stores exclusively in August 2009, and because of its lower price point has alloted income-deficient style mavens, like myself, the opportunity to jump on the Rachel Roy style wagon.
What we love most about the brand is its versatility and ability to transcend the generational gap. The pieces in each collection can transition from day to night with ease; and look equally as ravishing on the budding twenty-somethings as they do on the well marinated but stylish thirty-somethings.
I recently had a gander at the online store on Roy’s website and am absolutely obsessed with the Spring/Summer collection which, in short, is a compilation of every hot trend predicted for the season. Rachel’s recipe for temporal style combines soft fabrics and rich colored jumpsuits/rompers, brightly colored mini dresses and energetic prints, and a dash of ruffles and draped material. Feast your peepers on some of the looks below!
So what more could a devoted consumer ask of a designer?…… Why- adorable accessories of course. No worries ladies, the creative genius has that market covered as well! From strappy sandals and embellished handbags, to statement jewelry and printed scarves, the RACHEL Rachel Roy collection has an arsenal of fashionable products that will have you looking youthfully edgy yet uptown-chic from head to toe! My virtual closet on RachelRoy.com is full to the brim with essentials that I just can’t wait to purchase.
EXTRA!- Check out the behind the scenes footage from the Spring 2010 lookbook which features two of our favorite Latinas, Nina Sky. Always on the cutting edge of fashion, we can’t say that we’re surprised that they were chosen to model the collection!
