BACK AT IT:


Did you miss me?







Woohoo! I am back on The Rachel Story! 

It's been quite an intense quarter at school so far and the thought of posting on my blog was honestly the last thing on my mind. However, I didn't want to neglect something I actually enjoyed doing (plus writing an entry is a bit of a stress reliever). I have been busy, but I'm still so thankful to God for the many things He's blessed me with. So, here I am with another OOTD post that my lovely friends help me shoot.

The weather is finally cooling down and despite the harshness of the sun, I can still wear my fall/winter clothing like my trusty ol' Dr. Martens boots and this lacy black dress I've been saving all summer. This dress was actually bought on sale for less than $15...The Rachel Story strikes again!

How have you been styling your outfits for this season? Any style steals?

MODELMANIA:


What's fashion 
without its models?










Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss. Anyone familiar with the fashion world can, without a doubt, attribute these names to four amazing models of their era. Of course, these four women are only a few of the many influential bodies that moved with great force and prestige during fashion weeks (and let's not forget those editorials either). Some of my personal favorites from both the 90's supermodel era and the more recent pool of runway must-haves include: Devon Aoki, Beverly Peele, Gemma Ward, Kelly Mittendorf, Christy Turlington, Malaika Firth, Daphne Groeneveld, and honestly the list can go on and on...

But lets get into the outfit shall we?

I paired this awesome supermodel tank with my new floral "kimono" (still not sure about the use of the word kimono, but we'll go with it for now). Since the fall weather is slowly approaching--emphasis on the slow--I decided to bring on the jeans and wore this distressed black pair I recently bought on sale at Cotton On. I accessorized a bit with an amethyst necklace, gold hoops, and heeled sandals to lean out my legs and give me that extra height. 

OUTFIT:
Tank-Love Culture
"Kimono"-Marshalls
Jeans-Cotton On
Sandals-ASOS
Necklace-Anthropologie

Who's your favorite supermodel or model? Let me know in the comments below!

Best wishes, 

Rachel

P.S.- I'm finally going back to school tomorrow to start my sophomore year!! So excited for what God has in store for...stay tuned for some exciting blog post on campus! 

OPINION: SKECHERS


Let's take a little trip
down memory lane...








Remember the good ol' days when all of life's troubles consisted only of trying to color within the lines or making sure the kid behind you wouldn't cut in front of you in the lunch line? Better yet, remember running around in your awesome new Skechers sneakers during recess? 

Many folks may be over the whole Skechers phase, claiming the style is a thing of the past and should only remain on the little soles of elementary school children. Stop. Right. There. The folks at Skechers have not forgotten the ever-changing fashion trends of their aging customers--they've got a whole collection of boots this fall that are sure to have your sartorial mouths drooling. The pair I'm wearing in this post, the Girl's Club-Sisterhood boots, is the ultimate summer-to-fall boot that can be worn with virtually every outfit during both seasons.You can see how easily I styled the shoes for the changing temperatures by layering different pieces of outwear either around on my waist or simply worn as it should be.

Fun fact: this particular boot is cushioned with memory foam. That's right, memory foam. So not only did the folks at Skechers keep in mind what's trendy, they also added comfort into their designs making sure each wearer is at his or her maximum level of convenience and satisfaction. Even though it's heeled, the cushion will cancel out any future worries of aching and blistered feet. I will definitely be wearing these all throughout the upcoming fall/winter season when I'm back at university!

Skechers has tons of different styles lined up so make sure you check out the rest of their collection HERE.

Thanks for reading, 

Rachel
