Steal This Look ~ Penny Lane

6 Feb

Penny Lane is in our ears and in our eyes…

blog
The 70’s seem like a downright trippy time. During this decade the Vietnam War came to an end, the pet rock was invented, and Farrah Fawcett was posted on nearly every teenage boy’s bedroom wall.  The rise of the “flower child” also took place during these years. It is within these eccentric times that we find our inspiration for our next “Steal this Look” blog.  We are digging the character made famous by Kate Hudson’s Penny Lane from Almost Famous.

As she follows her favorite rock band throughout their tour, Penny Lane is constantly rocking the quintessential hippie trends. At Rapunzel’s Closet we have everything you need to play up your inner groupie goddess, minus her famous suede shearling jacket!

We pulled some of our favorite items from the store to show how easy it is to create an ensemble that is just as at home in modern day South Florida as it would be riding the Stillwater tour bus in 1973!

Jen’s Pirate Booty is our first pick. The Padang backless top in ivory looks great with light wash denim. The AG Pixie Cutoffs pictured here are a staple in every South Florida girl’s wardrobe. For a touch of color we added the Love Quotes linen scarf in Espresso. To complete this look, we suggest a pair of nude boots. Flip flops may not be the best choice when you never know what kind of venues your favorite rock band will be playing at!

Our favorite part about our second outfit is the Free People Lima hooded cardigan. The Southwest-inspired print looks great over a body-con dress or even with a pair of distressed denim jeans. For a dressier look, we put the cardigan over a cotton Minnie Rose Tank Dress in black. Because we love our accessories, we added the Gorjana Barrington belt around the waist. To top off the look we added one of our CC Design Stone Necklaces. The earthy look of these accessories is ideal for any flower child look.

Also pictured is a Dogeared tote with the phrase “Eat Bread,” perfect for the everyday vegetarian, and even the every-other-day vegetarian. The comfy pillow next to it is the Fresco Towels 24×24 pillow. These terry cloth cloth pillows are perfect for indoor or outdoor use and are a necessity after a long day of fun in the sun.

So check your local concert venues and come into Rapunzel’s to get your outfits ready. And remember in the words of Penny Lane, “You’re not a groupie, you’re a Band Aid.”
