Intermezzo: Ode to Minnie Rose

15 Aug

blogIf you haven’t tried on one of Minnie Rose’s luxurious cashmere sweaters you are really missing out. That’s how our love affair of all things Minnie Rose began a long time ago! The Resort Collection is always our favorite to see! The color palatte is sprinkled with happy pinks, greens and blues. Our old faithful favorites like sand and white always come back for Resort too. There were a few new additions to the line that we absolutely died for. blog Why not take our favorite Cashmere Pow Wow 3/4 length sleeve sweater and add buttons to it and make it a cardigan. Genius! We want one in every color! (no joke) blog Can you see that gorgeous Gold Metallic Vest on the MR rep? Yep – the one that is fabulously styled over the white tank and the jeans. We’re going to copy that exact look for our own closets. It’s a Resort MUST for 2012!

Some of our other favorites were the really fun Zig Zag Tank Dresses and Ruana Ponchos – we bought just about every color. For those of you who are Minnie Rose die hards, the Long Sleeve Striped Crew Neck Dresses are back and there are Solid Tank Dresses available in all the gorg Resort colors… sigh! blog Our ode to all things Minnie Rose just wouldn’t be complete without a shout out to our favorite Minnie Rose Rep Denise. Here she is pictured with Rapunzel herself. We love gabbing with her, we love when she calls us weekly and we love playing Scrabble and Scramble with her! Denise you rock!

Intermezzo: Ella Moss and Enza Costa

14 Aug

blogHow cute is this floral display at the Ella Moss booth? We are for sure going to do our own version of this as soon as busy season starts! A wardrobe staple for all Rapunzel Girls – the Ella Moss Resort Collection didn’t disappoint. We ordered romantic blouses with smocked details in Linen (off white) and Persimmon.(Resort’s pop color Red)
blogI am a blazer freak as I’m sure you’ve gathered from reading past posts. I love them and want them all. So you can imagine how excited I was to try on this Ella Moss Blazer with zig zag lining – adorbs! blog We also hit up the Enza Costa booth. This is a fairly new line for us – but we’ve had a lot of success with it in the past year. You want to wear these tops and tanks – they are as soft as they are chic. The luxurious fabrics will make you keep coming back to their layering tanks, oversized tees and cashmere sweaters. blog Always a fan of a cute skirt in a cool print Randi is modeling the snakeskin mini skirt. She’ll wear this over tights with boots and a black long sleeve top while it’s cool out this winter and come summer it will look great paired with a white tank and a cute pair of sandals!

Fringe is a great additon to any outfit.

30 Jul

Our Palm Beach storefront definitely makes us long for the beach daily. Our love of all things coolchange gets us through those days when we just can’t get to the beach. With dresses for all occasions we can go from work to the beach and then to town to dance the night away with just a few simple accessory changes.blog New for resort is this cold shoulder tunic. While it’s definitely a beachy coverup, we wouldn’t be opposed to trying this tunic over a pair of skinny white jeans for a casual evening out. blog The newest additon to the coolchange family are these super cute toddler dresses. We can’t wait to show these to our local moms. We want them for our little ones – we know they will too! blog Want to see more from our trip to coolchange? Visit our Facebook Page here!
