Steal This Look ~ Marilyn Monroe

26 Jun

Steal This Look: Sweet Norma Jean
“I’m very definitely a woman and I enjoy it.” –Marilyn Monroe

blog One of the most iconic women of all time, Marilyn Monroe, will be the inspiration for this week’s Steal This Look blog. Although Ms. Monroe passed away over fifty years ago, her timeless style and beauty has kept her at the forefront of modern popular culture.

With countless images to choose from, we chose one of the last images of Marilyn ever taken. During a photo shoot by photographer, George Barris, Marilyn surprised us by covering up a bit by wearing an oversized sweater as she frolicked along Santa Monica Beach. blog
In order to recreate this iconic look, we chose the Goddis Liv Wrap Sweater in the soft neutral tones.. Whether you throw this sweater over a bathing suit after a day at the beach, or choose to pair it with a tank and linen pants, it’s soft tones and comfy shape make this Goddis item an ideal addition to any Rapunzel shopper’s collection.

Not enough pop culture for you? We’ve also started selling coffee table books which are perfect additions to any living space! Since Marilyn is our featured inspiration, we are including two of our Marilyn-based books that are currently on sale!

Goddis Liv Wrap Sweater: $229.00
An Evening with Marilyn: $60.00
Marilyn by Bert Stern and Norman Miller: $69.99

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!

5 Things We Love About Joie

8 Mar

If you are not already on the Joie “Bandwagon” it’s time to jump on. Here are the 5 things we love about Joie:

  • The Timeless Prints – pretty florals and dots will make you want to pull these pieces out of your closet for years to come. The Felix Floral Tank will take you through multiple seasons – wear it with pants and a blazer or cute jean shorts.
  • The Effortless Body Styles – If you haven’t tried on The Masha Top – you are missing out. Repeated each season in a fun print – this top is age appropriate for all women and classic enough to be worn year round.

  • SOFT Joie – Joie’s lower priced little sister offers your favorite Joie body styles in a casual fabric and great colors. Don’t have the budget for regular Joie?  You will most likely see the body you coveted last season on SOFT Joie’s current line.
  • Joie A La Plage – to the beach you will go in these chic dresses that are so sexy – you’ll even get away with hitting the Tiki bar later in the same outfit.
  • Updated basics – Joie doesn’t offer your average short sleeve tee shirts. Their basics are fashion forward enough that you’ll roll with the season’s trend and but not get bored with just another plain white tee!
