    Thanks for stopping by sweetfrenchtoast!

    I'm Sabrina, and I love to make pretty things, visit inspiring places, eat really good food, and take lots of photos along the way. Though I live with my husband in Atlanta, GA, I consider the world my home, and I can't wait to see more of it.

I met rachel roy!

A few weeks ago, as RH came in from checking the mail, he sang “I’m about to make someone really happy!”

I, having had a pretty rough day and being incredibly skeptical that a piece of mail could reverse my grumpy mood, asked, “Did someone send us a check for a million dollars?”

He handed over a postcard, which looked like another sales flier from Macy’s. Except this one was different. It said “Look who’s here!” and had a photo of my absolute favorite designer, Rachel Roy.


I squealed like a 12-year-old girl who’d just been given front row seats One Direction.

And backstage passes.

I swoon over every piece in her collections when they debut, and about 80% of my closet is from the RACHEL Rachel Roy collection. Seriously. See for yourself on “my closet” Pinterest board.

I guess that’s why I got the postcard inviting me to see her launch the RACHEL Rachel Roy fall collection at my local Macy’s store.

The evening of the event, I showed up in one of my favorite RACHEL Rachel Roy dresses, along with some of my favorite jewelry from the collection. I nibbled on hors d’oeuvres and listened to the cute DJ spin some tunes while I waited in line for my turn to meet Rachel.

When I finally got to chat with her and tell her how much I adore her, she was so very humble, kind and down-to-earth. She signed a postcard for me and took some photos. I proceeded to buy a couple of pieces from the fall collection to wear to work. I’ve already received compliments on them!

And to top off my dreamy Rachel Roy experience, just a few days later, I snagged one of the dresses from her Resort 2013 collection using a Rue La La credit I’d been hanging onto. Score!

Here’s a photo of Rachel wearing the dress on Project Runway. Bella!

Check out this post with more photos from the evening’s host, Mattie of Mattieologie. If you look closely, you will see me — and RH, in his usual stance. (Hint: there’s a smartphone involved.)

If you had a chance to meet one of your fashion or style icons, who would it be?

Diane @ Vintage Zest - That’s so amazing! If I had the chance to meet a fashion or style icon, I would have a hard time deciding. I definitely waver in my styles from vintage to modern and in between.

Maybe I would pick Michael Kors only because I feel like I know him from Project Runway! He’s just hilarious, and the few pieces (and many purses) that I own of his always get tons of compliments. 🙂

Sabrina - Meeting Michael Kors would be awesome! One of my favorite dresses is a Michael Kors dress. I love Project Runway, and I think Tim Gunn is also way up there on my list of fashion/style celebs I’d like to meet.
