wandered into t.j.maxx after my 5th or 6th set of headphones this year decided to RIP on me. somehow got lost in the handbag section and spotted the coolest bag ever by rachel roy: the quilting bee backpack. it has an asymmetrical zip, two sectioned pockets, chain straps, and a zipper to create the backpack straps. quilted faux-leather (sigh) but studded with an incredible silhouette. for $35. debated for literally an hour whether i should get it or not and decided to postpone decision to today... my only problem with it is its size - 9" L x 5" W and 3 1/2" D [slightly small for my taste]. i am SUCH a sucker for backpacks/bumbags.....if only it were real leather, too! thoughts?
anyway, decided that since the backpack was so amazing, i should take a look at her fall collection again. didn't really pay that much attention to it previously. oh my god. incredible. the prints (peacock, wall print, midnight crushed silk) are beyond mesmerizing. an impeccable crocheted sweater dress. rich & vibrant "nile" and "pomegranate" jersey bodysuits & dresses, knit cardigans and tailored trousers. amazing coats... ethereal gowns. please please PLEASE take a look at the collection for your own sake. so stunning. http://www.rachelroy.com/
