the Rachel Parcell Collection & RP Everyday: a.dose.of honest review

***FOR THIS REVIEW: All photos in this post were taken ourselves on an iPhone, so you are getting ‘authentic mom/ NON model/ can’t pose/ omg-my-face-looks-crazy/ tripod-in-a-weird-spot’ real photos. We are not photoshoppers & face tuners, so nothing has been altered (which should go without saying) so this is really what the clothing looked like while wearing it***

Hello & thank you for stopping by today! We are so happy to be bringing you a.dose.of honest reviews and our honest-to-goodness opinion of the clothing we purchased ourselves  (over several transactions) from Rachel Parcell Collection, as well as the RP Everyday Shop. Hope you enjoy!

Best, N+K

Who Are We Reviewing?

With what can only be described as a massive following, Rachel Parcell is the founder of the blog,Pink Peonies, and has branched out into curating and designing her own line of women’s clothing. There are a few differences between her two lines. The ‘RP Everyday Shop’ is filled with items that she and the RP Team hand select, while the ‘Rachel Parcell Collection’ is filled with limited edition pieces which are custom designed by Rachel Parcell and the RP Team.

Shopping Experience

Let’s start with the how beautiful Rachel’s website is & how pleasant is was to search for items & make a purchase. We often balk at how long Saks Fifth Avenue’s website takes to load and process (because those Choos don’t buy themselves!), but none of those problems were found during our transactions with Our orders qualified for free shipping & items arrived quickly and well packaged.

 What We Ordered & How The Clothing Fits 

Below you will find all of the items we ordered- some from the hand curated RP Everyday Shop & some from the custom designed Rachel Parcell Collection. We were pleasantly surprised with the fit, quality & style of both, and we can’t be more excited to report that the quality of the Rachel Parcell Collection is on par with some of the most exclusive brands we’ve worn from major designers. The clothing was comfortable, washed well (we air dried most pieces) & we felt good in it. Nothing pulled, itched or felt cheap. These items will work for women of any age and for a variety of body types. We LOVE sleeves, so we never felt overly exposed, and on the flip side, we never felt matronly or dowdy either. We did order some pieces a size larger because we like a draped fit in some flowy tops, but check out the size guide before purchasing. We received plenty of compliments. Not only that, but the items we purchased are versatile and go with several things we have in our closets already.

Final Thoughts

We can wear pretty much any brand we like, and have many recognizable designer labels hanging in our closets…and the Rachel Parcell Collection will be hanging next to them. Yes! We highly recommend the RP Everyday Shop for it’s cute, comfortable, easy to wear, upgraded mom friendly pieces and we will continue to purchase pieces from the Rachel Parcell Collection because the quality of her feminine frocks feels really elevated. We definitely see ourselves purchasing from Rachel’s brand on a regular basis AND in place of other exclusive designers. This brand is our new favorite! 

*The Rachel Parcell Collection for Spring just launched and we are excited about our plan to pick up the Paris Garden Skirt, the Provence Lace Dress AND we’re anxiously awaiting the restock of the already SOLD OUT Paris Garden Top. So sad we missed it the first time around!
