Fashion Icon ~ Stephanie

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

Fashion Icon ~ Hallie

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

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!
blog
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.”

Outfit One:
Jen’s Pirate Booty Padang top: $264.00
AG Pixie Cutoff short: $154.00
Love Quotes Scarf in Espresso: $88.00

Outfit Two:
Free People Lima cardigan: $168.00
Minnie Rose Cotton Tank Dress: $118.00
Gorjana Barrington Belt: $58.00
CC Design necklace: $88.00

Also pictured:
Dogeared Tote: $30.00
Fresco Towels 24×24 pillow: 128.00

Decade: Looking Backwards and Forward!

19 Dec

We finish up our “Decade: Where It All Began” series with the final questions in our interview with Rapunzel herself, Randi Evans Siegal. We hope you have enjoyed this walk down memory lane as much as we have enjoyed putting it all together! blog

1. What has surprised you the most about the business in the last 10 Years?
RES: In the last 10 years I’ve seen a lot of stores go in and out, but there is a good group of us who have been consistent and are on the Island to stay. I’m most surprised that my not-so-typical Palm Beach style has been so attractive to the locals. blog

2. Where do you envision the business 10 Years from now?
RES: In 10 Years I envision the same, though I would like a larger children’s store. I just need to find the right “space.” I love how the adult store merchandise changes with the times but is still consistent to the core. blog3. What is your favorite thing about the business today?
RES: Definitely the employees! Everyone pitches in and the store + the merchandise really represents all of our individual style.
blog
4. If you were a customer what would your favorite items in the store be?
RES: I love the skinny cords in bright colors that we have right now from Citizens of Humanity, Hudson Jeans, J Brand and AG Jeans. The concert band tees from Chaser LA are my favorite go-to casual tees. Last but not least TKEES flip flops. I wear them every day, even on a day in NYC where it’s in the 50s.

5. What is the funniest thing that has happened in the past 10 Years that maybe wasn’t funny at the time but now you can look back and laugh?
RES: I once had a customer come in with a parrot on her shoulder. The parrot pooped in the store. Looking back it’s pretty funny!

We Shoot Rain or Shine or Blazing Heat

12 Oct

blog

Our most recent photo shoot was met with its fair share of challenges. We had to brave the blazing heat while we were trying to showcase Fall’s finest. It was pouring of course because it’s hurricane season in Florida. We put on our prettiest faces and did our best to “not melt” in the down pours and made the proverbial lemons out of lemonade.  Here’s a sneak peek behind the scenes!

blog Stunning Gia with her hair up waiting to dash out and do a quick shot in this fabulous Elizabeth and James Lori Chiffon Tank and Nichole Skirt.
 blog We always like to showcase pieces from our Jewelry Selection. How great does this CC Design  necklace look with the Joie Purine Leopard top? Sarah looks gorg too.. we promise!

blog We found a bit of shelter in a gazebo in a public park. Gia is waiting for our amazing photographer Rob to get setup for the shoot. We’re loving Splendid’s Baby Cord Button Down in Swan paired with AG Stilt Jeans in Smitten and an Auburn Pigment Short Sleeve Tee From James Perse.

Love that tote in the first picture? It’s Dogeared and we’re obsessed!

Have You Heard About the Neon Trend For Spring?

27 Feb

blog

Unless you live under a rock you are probably “glaringly” aware that Neon is a huge trend for Spring 2012. Those of us that were old enough to actually remember the 80s and partake in this trend the first time around are excited because it’s a throwback to simpler times. If you don’t remember the 80s – then you’ll definitely want to ride the Neon Wave this time around. You can’t not smile while you are sporting neon, and come on let’s face it – we ALL need to smile more right?

We’ve got some easy suggestions for wearing Neon whether you are a seasoned trend setter or a “Neon-ophyte.”

The cLaeson Tie Shoulder Tank looks great with just about any pants in your closet. Pair it with white jeans or cute white bermudas for a fresh springy look.

Feeling BOLD? Rock a pair of Neon AG Stilt Cigarette Skinny Jeans with your favorite printed or solid tops and sky high heels.

Love the Neon but don’t think you can pull it off? Hide your inner Neon Diva and try on some Neon Signature Lace Hanky Pankys. You’ll be right on trend and only you will know!
