Rachel Roy Retail Therapy

When life gets you down, what does one do?

If you’re me and get an email from Rachel Roy offering 30% off during their Friends and Family sale (November 19 – 23), you ignore the inner voice screaming rationalities about your spending and splurge.

Luckily, the splurge wasn’t too bad. Rachel Roy, an amazing designer who specializes in elegant uptown clothing for women, has created a new line for Macy’s called Rachel Rachel Roy. The line is full of young, fresh looks with a downtown edge for girls like you and me who aspire to wear her high price fashions (some pieces in her fall 2009 collection are well over $1,000). Prices for Rachel Rachel Roy dresses, which are of higher quality than something you would find at Target, top out at $129 while blouses and pants are up to $70 and $90.

So what did I end up getting?

This one shoulder dress with awesome detailing. There was a graffiti element in Ms. Roy’s first collection for Macys that you see in the red paint strokes all over the dress (I’m trying to insert more color in my mostly black wardrobe).

Some other options?

Love the sheer cutout details

Obsessed with this vest!

If you’re having the worst week ever or want to satisfy your craving for of the minute fashion for less, go to Rachel Roy’s site to check it out for yourself. And the code is rrfriend. Don’t say we never did anything for you.
