Rachel Roy at Macy's

I'm not a frequenter of Macy's, but I do find good stuff there when I do make my bi-annual trip. Today at lunch I thought I'd stop by and see what's going on...and holy cow I met Rachel Roy! Okay, so I didn't meet her but my eyes met her clothes and I'm impressed with Macy's. They have an exclusive line from this woman who I have never heard of but most likely gets mistaken for Rachel Ray, which is unfortunate. But check out these items and stop by a store if you can b/c there's a lot that isn't on the site.

Home girl does jewels too.

This dress is cute and there is a similar one at the store that is black and white and all things that dreams are made of.

I actually bought this coat. And I did the open up the credit card thing so I would get 15% off. I'm a cheapskate people. So what.

Wool Coats For Under 110 Bones

You know you wanna look like crazy Jesse from NYC Prep. Now you can for only $92!

For $79 everyone could use a lime green coat.

I made the limit $110 because this Quicksilver coat is all kinds of cute for only $109!

And for $40 you probably want a greenish "trapeze" coat as well...whatever that means.

$98 bucks at Fred Flare!

Falling Into Fall...isn't that a cute headline?

Fall is coming and that means cute sweaters, a light jacket and scarves! Everyone looks good in the Fall because they are covered up. Those girls on the subway who wear tights in July no longer have to be self-conscious about whatever it is about their legs that they are self-conscious about. It's a good thing for everyone. Here's what my closet will look like this Fall:

Get yer coat on. No, seriously, it's gonna get chilly outside!

One jumper is all you need - also an investment but I swear you'll wear it at least once a week. I know the people I work with must think I am a serious dirtbag, but I can't help it that jumpers are easy and comfortable and flattering and look different depending on what you wear underneath it. Here is one option.

This year I think I'm finally going to invest in some Sven boots. You can get them any way you want (it's call customizing) and you can get them resoled every year for a mere $30. So while they are a big cost up front, they will feel brand new every year. AND they are water proof and lined in something soft and warm that comes from a farm animal most likely. TRANSLATION: worth every penny.

This is called the Green Point Dress and I live in Greenpoint so I figured it was a sign and so I bought it and when I get it I'm gonna wear it. Done.
