I’ve only just recently become slightly obsessed with Raquel Allegra; I mean, what’s not to love – the modern tie-dye, subtly patterned silk, layering pieces and artful shredding. While I love it, I’ve yet to buy a piece, because I honestly don’t get the price. I “get” it, but I guess I haven’t found a piece I’m willing to pay the big bucks for yet. You know? I’m constantly looking for her stuff on ebay, as a way “in” to the brand, but I’ve found that the pieces available there are in the super-small sizes, and still REALLY expensive. Seriously? What are these ebay sellers smoking lately???
Anyway, I’m a huge fan, and hopefully someday I’ll find a piece I’m willing to pay for (there are lots of pieces on sale right now, Forward has an especially good selection). The layering pieces (tank dresses, skirts, etc.,) actually seem on par with James Perse in terms of price/quality – they seem like a worthwhile investment.
