Our final Sunday Girl in the Winner’s edit is the lovely Rachel, all the way from the USA. Rachel went all 50 shades for her shoot in this faultlessly festive grey combo. Perfect against the New York backdrop.
Oasis – Hi Rachel, what is your perfect Sunday?
Rachel – My perfect Sunday is a crisp, sunny fall day. It starts off productive, getting some errands & shopping done, then I love to meet friends for brunch – which always leads to making new friends.
Oasis – Sounds perfect! Which was your favourite part of your Sunday Girl outfit?
Rachel – My favourite piece from the shoot might have to be the coat. Every part of the outfit is uber comfortable and still super chic but the coat is a relaxed statement piece and the light pink/grey combination is just perfection. I just can’t stop wearing the sweater too! I’m obsessed with the entire ensemble.
Oasis – Us too. What are your plans for Christmas?
Rachel – For the holidays I’ll be travelling back to Atlanta to spend time with my family and my dog. I miss them so much and the holidays are a really special time to see everyone – I’m also singing in a friend’s wedding on New Year’s Eve, which is always an honour.
Oasis- Oh wow! So what is your favourite Christmas memory?
Rachel – One of my favourite memories is sneaking downstairs Christmas morning before anyone else was awake to see what Santa had left for us. Then I’d go wake up my brother (often against his wishes) and bring him downstairs to look. Then finally we’d wake up my parents & pretend we hadn’t already scoped out everything. We still laugh about this every year, how I thought I was so sneaky.
Oasis- Naughty! Will you be wearing anything special on Christmas day?
Rachel – On Christmas, I’ll be wearing a cosy scarf, chunky-knit, black leggings and boots. I’ve got to be comfy so I can keep up with my dog and all my nieces and nephews.
Oasis – Sunday Girl is inspired by a Blondie song, but what’s your favourite song right now. Christmas ones are allowed.
Rachel – I LOVE Christmas music! And I appreciate all kinds, my favourites are:
– Happy Xmas by John & Yoko
– River by Joni Mitchell
– All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey (a classic)
– Last Christmas by Wham!
– Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee
Oasis- Some excellent choices. What’s your must-have fashion item for Winter?
Rachel – Honestly in the winter I really cherish my scarves. They are so snuggly and warm and they really complete an outfit.
Oasis – Did you enjoy your Sunday Girl photo shoot?
Rachel – We had a blast doing the shoot, the high-line is such an amazing NYC destination and it was a beautiful sunny day. Plus it was all fantastic, talented women – I’m all about the girl power!
Thanks Rachel, we just cannot wait for Christmas now. Go see (and more importantly, shop) Rachel’s full look here. You can catch up with all of our other Sunday girl’s too!
