What I Wore: Rachel Roy in Toronto

rachel-roy-dress-toronto

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting the incredibly beautiful and oh-so-lovely designer Rachel Roy, while she made a quick stop to sign autographs at The Bay in Toronto. Wearing on of her RACHEL Rachel Roy dresses, I was instantly smitten with the brainy beauty, but she quickly put me at ease with her sweet and approachable manner. She seemed genuinely interested in finding out what people thought about her line, and seemed relieved that so many of us had only rave reviews to share with her.

Take this dress for example…it’s literally the comfiest, yet most flattering shift dress I own. The fabric looks like tweed, but is super stretchy, and the awesome zipper/pattern details on the side make my silhouette appear slimmer, yet somehow curvier too. This dress (as well as the rest of her Fall 2012 collection) is truly a winner. And to top it off, my friend Sharon also turned up to the event in the same exact dress! In the words of the fab Anna Dello Russo, we “did the right choice”!

New York Fashion Week: Continued

NYFW is commencing today, and I have yet to post about my faves so far. I will try to do a summarizing post around the weekend, but in the meantime, I have a few photos of the collections that caught my eye. I promised myself, that next year I won’t be writing from the sidelines, but will be front and centre in NYC, smelling the perfume and watching the models strut their stuff at Bryant Park. One more New Year’s resolution to add to the list.
