Mama Knows Best ~ Hallie

Mama Knows Best: Hallie’s Mom
blog

Style seems to run in the families of all of our girls at Rapunzel’s Closet, and our buyer, Hallie, is no exception. Hallie’s mother, Beth-Anne, has obviously taught Hallie the importance of personal style; lucky for us, Hallie has landed herself a job where she can share this natural knack for style with all of us here at Rapunzel’s Closet.

“My mother has always stayed close to the trends of the season but likes to purchase classic pieces that are wardrobe mainstays and mix trends in as they come and go. I can definitely say that I take a similar approach to my personal style.”

This awesome picture of Beth-Anne has greatly inspired us—we find it hard not to imagine what her day in San Francisco was like when she had this picture taken! Exciting times and even more exciting styles!

To re-create this look we decided to play up the wide-leg flare with some Hudsons! The Mia Five-Pocket Flare is essential in this look. To duplicate her layered look, we paired the Vince V-Neck in Eggplant with a white Equipment Signature Blouse. Accessories include a pair of Rapunzel’s Jewelry Box Hoop Earrings and a retro, crochet Missoni Scarf! We are loving this look!
Thanks for inspiring us, Hallie’s Mom! Peace and Love!

Mama Knows Best: Stephanie’s Mother

blog

They always say, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” In the case of Stephanie’s bohemian, flower-child style, it seems that this theory is quite true.

When Stephanie forwarded me a picture of her mother, Alexandra, on her wedding day to her dad back in the late seventies, her crochet sleeves and gauzy wedding dress looks like something a modern bride could be seen wearing while walking down the aisle. A soon-to-be-bride herself, Stephanie had nothing but praise for her mom’s signature style.

“With my own wedding coming up, I’m finding a lot of inspiration in my parent’s wedding albums. It’s funny how as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to relate to my mother in so many new ways—especially when it comes to our similar taste and style.”
blog

To duplicate Stephanie’s mom’s wedding day look, we took a new arrival from one of our favorite brands, Free People. The Slip Away Pullover dress in ivory is perfect with its crochet detailing on the bottom. This gauzy dress is fairly sheer, so we layered it over the Velvet Andi Lace Tank Dress. To pull the outfit together, we added the Gorjana Barrington Belt in Gold and added another touch of gold with the Palm Beach Lately Arrow Necklace.

What does your mom’s wedding album look like? Maybe Rapunzel’s Closet can help you re-create the iconic look just like Stephanie!

Free People Slip Away Pullover: $148.00
Velvet Andi Lace Tank Dress: $150.00
Gorjana Barrington Belt: $58.00
Palm Beach Lately Arrow Necklace: $78.00

Mama Knows Best: Sarah’s Mom

Every girl should know that there is no trend is an original. Nothing is new and sometimes the best way to be fashionably inspired is to look at old pictures of our moms, aunts, grandmothers, and even our dads! (In case you didn’t know, our dads were definitely the original hipsters.)

Here at Rapunzel’s Closet we respect all things fashion, so we decided what better way to pay homage to the fashionistas before us, then to create some looks inspired by our mothers—our first ever style icons.

Sarah is currently the face of Rapunzel’s Closet. When we asked her to bring in a picture of her mother, PJ, we weren’t too shocked that she presented us with one of her mom’s original test shots from her early modeling days! Good looks definitely run in that family!
blog With this gorgeous shot of PJ as our inspiration, we put together a couple things that Sarah’s mom would definitely be sporting during her modeling days! blog PJ is wearing a men’s style button-down; we thought the Equipment Signature Blouse would work perfectly to help us re-create this mom-inspired look.  And since the skinny jean had yet to make a splash, we thought the Joe’s Visionaire Boot Cut Jean would give the retro look the finish it needs. Throw on some TKEES or even better, some high platforms and you’ve got the look!

Way to go, Sarah’s mom! Thanks for inspiring us!

Equipment Signature Blouse in Shark: $208.00

Stephanie’s Style Icon: Jessica Alba

blog
Our store manager Stephanie has a style of her own. Her relaxed, beach-girl style has remained intact throughout all the passing trends at Rapunzel’s Closet. But every once in a while, Stephanie likes to draw inspiration from her favorite fashion icon—Jessica Alba.

Jessica Alba is your classic California girl and her style mirrors her laid-back, West Coast upbringing. Being a mother of two, it wouldn’t make sense that Jessica has a lot of time to focus on her style. Yet in every paparazzi picture, we can’t help but notice that Jessica looks like she’s walking straight off of a movie set. So with that, Stephanie decided to create her own Alba-inspired look using some of her favorite brands (::: cough :::Jen’s Pirate booty :::cough:::)
blog
Denim shorts are a must-have for any Florida (or California) girl. They can easily go from day time errands to a casual beach-bar at night. The AG Jeans Hailey Ex-Boyfriend cut-offs are a store favorite. Stephanie chose the Jen’s Pirate Booty Peace Tank with the Monrow Military Trench to go with the cut-off. The femininity of the tank is off-set by the masculine look of the trench—together making an outfit worthy of a Jessica Alba street-style look. Add a CC Design Tassel Necklace and you’re ready for a sidewalk runway!

Come check out our other styles at Rapunzel’s Closet and become your own style icon! We’ll see you soon!

AG Jeans Hailey Ex-Boyfriend Cutoff in 15-year wash-$187.00
Jen’s Pirate Booty Peace Tank: $154.00
Monrow Military Trench: $220.00
CC Design Tassel Necklace – Black: $110.00

Hallie’s Style Icon ~ Jennifer Aniston
blog“I feel sexy in my jeans and wearing my boyfriend’s T-shirt”-Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston has been molding her casual-sexy style since she was immortalized as Rachel Green on Friends. Most people find themselves in the category of either wanting to marry her, wanting her as a best friend, or wanting her style—our store Buyer, Hallie, considers herself the latter group.

Jen has started a revolution for the girls who feel their best in jeans and a t-shirt—as her quote above states. Hallie can’t help but appreciate Jen’s effortless style that always seems to flatter and impress—and with that, we had her create an outfit as “An Ode to Aniston.” blog

As of late, Jen can be seen in her signature boyfriend crops, basic tees, and oversized-yet tailored blazers. We re-created her styles by throwing our Elizabeth and James Heather Crepe Blazer over a basic James Perse tee and paired it with a pair of the distressed AG Ex-Boyfriend Crops. Never one to over-accessorize, we continued to channel Jennifer by adding a CC Design Buddha necklace and a pair of  TKEES Duos in Burnt Toast.

So take a cue from Jennifer and create your own sexy, yet simple outfit at Rapunzel’s Closet! Maybe bring a “Friend” or two! 😉

Elizabeth and James Crepe Blazer-$495.00
James Perse Casual V-neck Tee-$64.00
AG Ex-Boyfriend Crop in 19-year wash-$205.00
CC Design Buddha Necklace-$78.00
TKEES Duos in Burnt Toast-$50.00

Rachel’s Style Icon: Michelle Williams
blog

When I asked the girls to pick their favorite style icon, my mind immediately began toiling over who I would choose. I like Kristen Stewart’s chaotic style, but also can appreciate Dianna Agron’s consistency of flirty, flowy dresses. However, when I finally realized that it was Michelle Williams who made the most appearances on my Pinterest Inspiration board, I knew I had my answer.

It wasn’t until the recent years that Michelle Williams began molding her signature style. A lot has changed since her arrival to the Hollywood scene in the late nineties. Gone are the denim overalls and plaid shirts, and the shadow of Katie Holmes on Dawson’s Creek, Michelle Williams is a bona fide style icon.
blog

I chose the Ella Moss Lucie Clip Dot Dress as the staple piece in my Michelle Williams creation. The halter style is perfectly retro and the fact that it can be dressed up or down is a plus. To complement the simplicity of the dress, I added a Bourbon and Boweties Agate Tassel Necklace. Whether you choose a dressy sandal or strappy heel, this look is complete and is worthy of any fashionable event.

So whether you preferred Dawson Leery or Pacey Witter, we can all agree that it is Jen Lindley that is at the forefront of today’s modern fashion trends—showing us that even the cheesiest of teen icons can make a stylish comeback!

Ella Moss Lucie Clip Dot Dress: $248
Bourbon & Boweties Agate Tassel Necklace: $55

Kristen’s Fashion Icon: Reese Witherspoon
blog

America’s Sweetheart, Reese Witherspoon, has been winning over audiences since she arrived on the Hollywood scene in the late nineties. Her signature blonde hair and pearly white smile has helped make her the classic girl-next-door. As if that’s not enough – she is an Academy Award winning actress and mother of three!

Her casual look is comfortable and stylish—which is why Kristen chose Reese as her style icon. Kristen, being a huge fan of scarves and comfy-cool pieces, considers Reese’s style as one to be coveted. To prove how simple it is to dress like your favorite fashion muse, we had Kristen put together a look that she can see Reese in. Let’s see what she came up with…
blog

On top, she chose the SUSS Elin Henley in white. The fitted style is offset by the drawstring James Perse Cargo Pant. These pants are a staple in any wardrobe. They look great with a pair of TKEES Flip Flops or even with a cute espadrille. To add some color, Kristen added a Love Quotes Scarf in the color, Hermes Orange. The bright orange compliments the basic colors of the outfit and adds a preppy twist.

Stop by Rapunzel’s Closet and create your own icon-inspired look so you can become your own fashion icon!

Suss Elin Henley: $79.00
James Perse Cargo Pant: $195.00
