Rachel Lindsay spills on how her outfits were really chosen on 'The Bachelorette'

When we sat down with sort-of-newly engaged Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo on Wednesday afternoon, not even 48 hours had passed since they announced their engagement.

"Yesterday was long," Bryan admitted.

The two hopped on a red-eye to New York City shortly after the three-hour show in Los Angeles on Monday night, dove right into interviews and haven't stopped. Regardless of the understandable exhaustion, they looked bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

The couple was visiting Lord & Taylor's flagship store in New York City to kick off the store's enhanced price matching program -- and they certainly dressed for the occasion. Rachel looked stunning in a black and white, floral, lace dress ("I love what she wears," Bryan said of his lady love's style), while Bryan looked dapper in a fitted black suit ("He wears a suit so well," Rachel gushed. "I love to see him in a suit.")

"I grew up going to Lord & Taylor in Dallas," Rachel told AOL Lifestyle of why she was excited to partner with the store. "And it's always been a brand that I loved. And now we're here, and I'm out and about, free with my fiancé, so we're here celebrating their enhanced price-matching program."

Essentially, shoppers who find a lower, advertised price for any item that Lord & Taylor has in-stock will qualify for price matching. What's more is that the retailer's expanded price-matching program now includes Amazon, in addition to qualifying US-based department stores. And here's the best part: each customer who price matches in any Lord & Taylor location is presented with a rose -- so naturally, Rachel was the perfect person to help spread the word.

"She loves doing that," Bryan joked about his fianceé handing out more roses. According to Rachel, it just never gets old.

One thing that the engaged couple agrees has gotten old, though? Rehashing her relationships with the other men.

"I'd say I'm over talking about the other men, you know? All that was three months ago. I found my guy. We just want to relish." And Bryan couldn't agree more. "Same," he said simply.

We had a more important topic to talk about anyway: fashion. If you're anything like us, you're dying to know how all of the Bachelor or Bachelorette's outfits are chosen each season -- and Rachel totally spilled.

"I work with Cary Fetman, who's the stylist for the show, and we got along so well. I'm not kidding, I consider him like a best friend. And so we spent a week picking out clothes for the entire season. He [couldn't] tell me what the dates [were], but we go through it, talk about the weather, all of that. Since we got along well, we really had the same style, which was great. But I'll say, he made me a little girlier than I normally am. I'm more of a tomboy -- a little rough around the edges."

With that said, she wouldn't trade a single one of her breathtaking gowns.

"I really like that he pushed me out of my comfort zone when it came to the dresses. I had gorgeous dresses, and that's all a credit to him."

Yet, that doesn't mean she beat around the bush about her preferences -- and because of that, watching it back, the former "Bachelorette" has no regrets about what she wore.

"I really was vocal," she admitted." I was like, 'That is not me, I'm not wearing that.' I think the biggest fights we had were over turtlenecks." [Laughs]. She's not a fan.

And while Bryan acknowledged that dressing for the season was "a lot easier" for the guys (who brought their own clothes), he did make one admission:

"I was the guy with an extra suitcase. [Laughs]. "I literally planned for two months."

Sixth sense, much?

The best part is that Rachel's fans have the opportunity to share some of the star's favorite outfits! She's selling some of her clothes on thredUP, the world's largest online thrift store, where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the ACLU.

And we're eying it all.
