RACHEL Rachel Roy Collection Now At Macys

RACHEL Rachel Roy Collection Now At Macys

Back in April, I had a chance to preview designer Rachel Roy's new affordable fashion line, RACHEL Rachel Roy, which is sold exclusively at Macy's stores and online at I haven't had a chance to shop the collection yet in person (I'm currently camping in a remote part of Quebec, Canada) but I've browsed the online offerings and they are delicious but pricey, ranging in price from $59 for a chain-embellished tee to $129 for a jersey two-in-one dress (above right). Whether or not I end up buying anything from this collection will depend on the fit and that magical word: Sales.

Has anyone else seen the new line in stores? Thoughts please!

I happened to check out this line while browsing in Macy's. I agree it's still a lil pricey for a budget babe. Also I only saw one peice I REALLY like; the rest were just ehhh.

I was SUPER bummed to learn that only a few Mpls Macys will carry this line, and not all pieces would be stocked. When you posted about it in spring, I was just floored ... especially by the jewelry, which I think I'll have to bribe a New Yorker to purchase on my behalf!

I actually bought a dress from the line for a trip to Vegas (I was ready and willing to splurge). It's a shorter dress, with a deep cut and pockets. It came in black, silver and a marbled pink/purple/charcoal. I went with the marbled color, and I LOVE it. It was $99, and I felt like I had purchased something that cost way more. My mom loved it so much, she purchased the black version of the dress to wear as a top (it's short enough) for her 30th class reunion (she was ready and willing to splurge as well). PLUS, it looked like the other clothes were SUPER cute too. I'm a fan.

Love, love, LOVE the jumper! I will have to check the Macy's locations in the DC metro area to see how much of line, if any, they're carrying.

Welcome to Canada, BB! :-)

If you get a chance, a place you MUST stop at is the Simon's department store in Montreal. It has a trendy house line (Twik) that is affordable and chic. It also sells other brands like Mexx.

If you do nothing else in Canada, stop at Simon's! :-)
