New Feature: Steal This Look

18 Jan

Our guest blogger Rachel has been home sick with the flu so we thought we’d share her latest post to brighten her and everyone’s day!

Steal This Look: Duchess of Cambridge ~ Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton is the subject of our first “Steal This Look” post. A very fitting choice, considering that here at Rapunzel’s Closet we are inspired by all things “Princess.”

As soon as Kate first starting appearing in the media, we were been fascinated by her natural beauty and classic-cool style. Over time her style has transformed from sporty school girl to royal chic—always remaining a style icon to many.

This week we decided take one of the Duchess’ classic looks and put our own Palm Beach twist on it using some our favorite pieces from the store.

Of all of Kate’s looks, we loved her choice of threads when she visited Olympic Park back in March.  She stood out wearing bright colors while mixing in her signature timeless pieces. We tapped into our new Selling Associate Monica’s modeling skills to show how a few simple pieces can make you feel like a princess for a day.

From head-to-toe Monica is wearing the Elizabeth and James Crepe Heather Blazer, Vince Double-Layer Long-sleeve striped shirt, and the Hudson Collin Skinny in Suede Rose.
If you look closely, you can see Monica is sporting one of Rapunzel’s new Palm Beach Lately Arrow necklaces—an understated accessory that we definitely can see Kate adding on to any of her outfits.

Elizabeth and James Crepe Heather Blazer: $495.00
Vince Long-sleeve Stripe Shirt: $125.00
Hudson Collin Skinny in Suede Rose: $165.00
Palm Beach Lately Arrow Necklace: $78.00

We Shoot Rain or Shine or Blazing Heat

12 Oct


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 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!

Elizabeth and James… and RAPUNZEL’S!!!

12 Jul

blogRandi and I were in buying heaven as we carefully selected our favorite pieces from the Elizabeth and James Resort and Pre-Spring deliveries this week! As a blazer aficianado, I can honestly say that when I put on the Crepe Heather Blazer with the ruched sleeves while in the showroom I wanted to run out the door and all the way back uptown to the RC offices and stare in the mirror for the rest of the day. Who cares that it was 86 degrees out and I was planning my getaway in a crepe blazer.

While our official Elizabeth and James launch will be this coming September when we introduce the holiday collection, nothing excites us more than when we start buying for Resort and Spring because that means our season is right around the corner.blog

The Jazlynn Dress with the open back and ruching at the waist was definitely one of our favorite resort pieces. It hardly needs much more than a strappy metallic stiletto or a nude peep toe pump. Don’t forget to pick up a pair of fabulous earrings while you are browsing around Rapunzel’s Closet.

blogIf the Resort 1 collection is the white story then the Resort 2 collection is singing the blues – blue pinstripes, robin’s egg blue satin and of course my coveted navy Crepe Heather Blazer. We just had to throw in the fabulous Bella Silk Tank and the Copper Jeweled Blouse!

We’ll leave you with one last tease of our Elizabeth and James Resort preview – we tried it all on and we can’t wait for you to love it as much as we do!
