Mama Knows Best ~ Sarah

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!

Steal This Look ~ Mrs. Ryan Reynolds

13 Feb

Every one of us knows a girl who seems to have it all: career, looks, style…former “Sexiest Man Alive” husband. Blake Lively is THAT girl for us! For this week’s Steal This Look feature we borrowed one of the Gossip Girl’s street style looks and did our own Closet Gossip spin on it.

The outfit that got our wheels turning was when Blake wore a form-fitting dress that hits well above the knee, with an oversized boyfriend blazer in a soft neutral color. With the dress being as fitted as it is, Blake was able to successfully tone down the look by pairing it with this blazer. Topping it off with a chunky necklace and neutral shoe makes this ensemble perfect for daytime. Remove the blazer and you’re ready to for a night out.

Challenge accepted. blog

Our version of Blake’s outfit consists of one of our favorite brands-Finders Keepers. Their pieces are bright, edgy, affordable and a little sexy—which was exactly what we needed for this look. As opposed to Blake’s basic navy dress, we opted for the fun print of the Finders Keepers, “Know You Now” dress. The pop of geographic pink against the nude sheath makes this dress versatile—a plus for any woman.

Next we added the Vince Blazer in Coastal Blue. Unlike Blake’s oversized boyfriend blazer, this Vince piece is cropped and makes it more wearable for any shape or size. The classic navy tones down the brightness of the dress.

We then added a few of our CC Design beaded necklaces to create the look of Blake’s chunky necklace. All you need to complete this look are some neutral heels or flats, and you’re set for a date with your sexiest man alive.

See you at Rapunzel’s!

XOXO, Closet Gossip Girl
