If, like us, you rely on
's addictive fashion news, chances are you're already familiar with the work of Rachel Strugatz. The stylishly intrepid accessories news editor and social media news editor is constantly churning out fascinating stories on the worlds of (you guessed it!) accessories and social media. Strugatz's dual beats keep her in tune with some of fashion's hottest players (think Man Repeller and the DANNIJO girls, to name a few), so, naturally, we turn to her whenever we're on the hunt for accessories on the brink of #trending.
Luckily, she managed to carve out time between countless showroom visits and interviews to let us put her under the microscope—and play dress up, of course. Play voyeur as Rachel shows off her favorite to-die-for ensembles, and teaches us a thing or two about the art of high-low dressing. If you've ever wanted to know how much ice is too much, she's got your answer. Hint: You can never have too much bling!
