Trend Watch Wednesday: {Rachel Gilbert}

Another day, another fashionable gal named Rachel.

What is it with these Rachels and their fabulous style?

Anywhoodle, I’m not exactly certain of why I hadn’t heard of Rachel Gilbert until very recently, but whatever the case, I’m glad we’re getting acquainted now. For the past few days, I’ve been swooning over every collection on her pretty, pretty website and wishing I had a spare $2,000 to spend on evening dresses.

Rachel’s work has been seen on such celebs as Guiliana Rancic and Taylor Swift, and on shows like Gossip Girl.

And you know you’re big timin’ it when GG features your dress.

You may also remember Princess Beatrice’s beautiful white gown at Kate and Will’s wedding back in April. Yup, that was a Rachel Gilbert, too!

Her trademark is luxurious embellishments and princess-style silhouettes on her dresses. Her necklines typically feature shiny gems, stitching and intricate bead work, making them truly one-of-a-kind.

And ‘spensive.

It’s darn near impossible to replicate such a uniquely made dress, but you CAN emulate her style for a fraction of the price.

These dresses from ASOS.com feature a few of the same cuts and embellishment work seen on Rach Gib’s gowns and the price tags are working-girl friendly.
