#OOTD: Maxi Dress | Styled 2 Ways

16 Jul

This week Steph and Christina are styling the Pink Stitch Resort Maxi Dress two different ways. Take it away Girls!

Steph:
Coastal Chic

I am in love with this Pink Stitch Resort Maxi Dress in Azure Blue. It’s the perfect flowy maxi for a hot summer day at Rapunzel’s.

During the day at work my “must haves” are  an arm full of Bourbon & Boweties Bracelets (coins & a sea of blue are my favorites) & TKEES on my feet. These days I can’t get enough of TKEES in Coco Butter and Sea Snake. I completed my mermaid look today with a pair of Sea Snake.

After work I can throw on a chunky beaded belt for a sunset cruise on the boat! (Margaritas are a non-negotiable!) I added an Annie Fischer Pineapple Pouch for my cell phone, lip gloss, sunnies & keys and I’m ready to go!

Christina:
A Preppy State of Dress

There is this little old saying that goes; you must always have the perfect little black dress. Well, on Palm Beach the perfect little black dress actually translates into the perfect little summer dress. When I set my eyes on the new Pink Stitch Resort Maxi Dress I just knew I had to have it. I went for an effortless chic look without all the fuss that goes into making an outfit.

Sometimes, it really is better to go with the saying, less is more. I made sure to keep the jewelry to a minimum only accenting it with Bourbon & Boweties Bracelets and a Zacasha tassel necklace. I knew I would be spending the day running errands around Palm Beach, so I made sure to keep the shoes simple. You can often catch me rocking my TKEES or some other fashionable flat around town. So leave all the fuss at home, grab your favorite clutch and aviator sunglasses and you’re good to go!

Introducing ~ GIVESCENT

15 Feb

While we’ve never been into the bodycare and fragrance genre at Rapunzel’s Closet, we were presented with an opportunity to offer fragrance to our customers. Recently I had the chance to meet Alexandra Lyon Perelman one of the creators of GIVESCENT. She gave me a bottle of the GIVESCENT Fragrance and it’s been a big winner with everyone who I’ve tested it with! I’m not personally a big lover of fragrance for my lifestyle but, this one is light enough to wear to a play date or a date night, and it doesn’t make me or my kid sneeze! The 5ml roll-on bottle fits perfectly into a makeup bag, but is also cute enough to decorate your perfume tray at home.

blog“After living two years in Italy, celebrated yoga teacher, Elena Brower, fell in love with the culture, the pace, and especially the scents. She discovered a Sicilian almond oil blend that inspired her to create a scent of her own. In collaboration with Alexandra Lyon Perelman, they recreated the blend in New York City, paired it with summery citrus, and GIVESCENT was born. Wherever they wore their irresistible scent, women and men alike fell in love with it.

GIVESCENT was created to share the beauty of our intoxicating scent, and in turn empower women and give them voice. By purchasing a bottle of GIVESCENT, you are helping to support women worldwide. A portion of GIVESCENT’s proceeds benefits Women for Women International.”

Introducing ~ Bourbon & Boweties + a Giveaway!!

1 Feb

blog Bamboo Mix Bracelets

After traveling around the world, Florida Girl Carley Ochs came home and began hand crafting a unique jewelry line called Bourbon and Boweties. (her two favorite things) The jewelry line was inspired by Carley’s gypsy traveling lifestyle and love for all things made in the South. She wanted to create something fabulously unique, but also something that appealed to women of all ages.

Carley says “My grandmother has always told me: Things that you do, do with all your might because things done by 1/2’s are never done right.”  So she puts her heart and soul into each bracelet. The Bourbon and Boweties motto is “Made by proud Southern hands” and it envelops all that Carley is and has become in her 27 years. Carley loves what she does and it shows in each piece.

Line We Love ~ Letarte

29 Jan

We admit that it’s hard to not love all things beachy when you live and work in a resort town. Recently our obsesession with Letarte has multiplied by volumes. Not only are the designs fabulous but the fit is amazing too! We love the little details like beading or sequins that adorn the garments. The colors and body styles dance the fine line that bridges bohemian and chic. We pair this line with our favorite bathing suits or throw on one of the tunics over crisp white jeans for a finished look! As an added bonus – they design for our little ones too.
Island chic never looked so cute!

Stacked for Success: Hobby Becomes Business

 Two Palm Beach locals,  Liz Evans and Annie Johnson have teamed up to create a unique jewelry line called Stacked. The young entrepreneurs decided to turn what was once a hobby of making bracelets into a business with a goal to make fun and affordable custom jewelry.
 blog

“Sharing a passion for fashion, we both fell in love with the idea of using accessories and mixing lots of bright colors in one’s wardrobe,” says Johnson.

Liz majored in fashion merchandising and has worked at three major fashion houses in New York and Florida since she graduated from University of Alabama. “Having a background in production and buying, as well as the love for jewelry, has made this business adventure very exciting” says Evans. blog

The name Stacked came easy. It defines the idea of layering the bracelets with different styles, charms, colors, and especially other pieces of jewelry. The next step is to incorporate necklaces and different and new styles of jewelry. blog

For the latest designs check out  Stacked on Facebook and follow them on Instagram at stackedbracelets.

“Lindsey Berns is a luxury children’s clothier reminiscent of the past with a modern and fresh perspective. Inspired by a perfectly broken-in pair of vintage blue jeans and a soft white tee, Lindsey’s designs reflect a classic sensibility, an effortless style, and an artistic and imaginative spirit.

Swiss Eyelet Blouse

Standout designs include ric rac tunics elaborately hand-appliqued with colorful ric rac trim, Swiss eyelet ruffle blouses, and her signature ultra suede flower peasant tops. All the little details–colorful beads, suede fringe & french grosgrain ribbon–makeup a look that is youthful, cheerful, unique, and just plain fun.”
