Passing the crown: An Intro to Rapunzel’s Newest Princesses

14 Nov

When we learned of two of our Rapunzel’s princesses were going to be leaving the kingdom of Rapunzel Closet, we couldn’t help but be a little disappointed. But once our tears dried, we realized the silver lining. That meant that we were going to have a new princess joining our Rapunzel Family!

With that, we would like to introduce the newest member of our team. This beautiful brunette is named Christina and she has joined us just in time  for the holidays and to bring a new personal style and fresh fashionable viewpoint to our Palm Beachers.

“I love clothes with sophisticated tailored lines with a dash of edgy jewelery,” says Christina. 

Christina’s Fave Brands: J Brand Jeans and Bourbon and Boweties.

Now that you’ve met Christina, we think it’s time that Christina met you! So come stop by Rapunzel’s and meet her! She might just might be your fashion soul sister!

Bye for now!

We Can’t Stop, We Won’t Stop

13 Sep

If you follow any of our social media you know that we’ve been on the road shopping for our upcoming busy season since since mid-July. It’s been a great team effort with staffers from NYC, Palm Beach and San Francisco pitching in to help us out. We’ve also had our fair share of fun – half nekkid cowboys anyone?? Here is a little recap of the past couple months of buying trips! We’re concluding our seasonal buying with a trip to Coterie in NYC next week – we’re sure there will be a lot more laughs and fashiony (is that a word?) pix to come!

Mama Knows Best ~ Hallie

Mama Knows Best: Hallie’s Mom
blog

Style seems to run in the families of all of our girls at Rapunzel’s Closet, and our buyer, Hallie, is no exception. Hallie’s mother, Beth-Anne, has obviously taught Hallie the importance of personal style; lucky for us, Hallie has landed herself a job where she can share this natural knack for style with all of us here at Rapunzel’s Closet.

“My mother has always stayed close to the trends of the season but likes to purchase classic pieces that are wardrobe mainstays and mix trends in as they come and go. I can definitely say that I take a similar approach to my personal style.”

This awesome picture of Beth-Anne has greatly inspired us—we find it hard not to imagine what her day in San Francisco was like when she had this picture taken! Exciting times and even more exciting styles!
blog

To re-create this look we decided to play up the wide-leg flare with some Hudsons! The Mia Five-Pocket Flare is essential in this look. To duplicate her layered look, we paired the Vince V-Neck in Eggplant with a white Equipment Signature Blouse. Accessories include a pair of Rapunzel’s Jewelry Box Hoop Earrings and a retro, crochet Missoni Scarf! We are loving this look!
Thanks for inspiring us, Hallie’s Mom! Peace and Love!

Hudson Mia Five Pocket Flare-$50.00 SALE!
Vince V-neck: $ 325.00
Equipment Signature Blouse: $208.00
Rapunzel’s Jewelry Box Silver Hoops: $38.00
Missoni Scarf: $233.00

Mama Knows Best ~ Steph

Mama Knows Best: Stephanie’s Mother

blog

They always say, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” In the case of Stephanie’s bohemian, flower-child style, it seems that this theory is quite true.

When Stephanie forwarded me a picture of her mother, Alexandra, on her wedding day to her dad back in the late seventies, her crochet sleeves and gauzy wedding dress looks like something a modern bride could be seen wearing while walking down the aisle. A soon-to-be-bride herself, Stephanie had nothing but praise for her mom’s signature style.

“With my own wedding coming up, I’m finding a lot of inspiration in my parent’s wedding albums. It’s funny how as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to relate to my mother in so many new ways—especially when it comes to our similar taste and style.”
blog

To duplicate Stephanie’s mom’s wedding day look, we took a new arrival from one of our favorite brands, Free People. The Slip Away Pullover dress in ivory is perfect with its crochet detailing on the bottom. This gauzy dress is fairly sheer, so we layered it over the Velvet Andi Lace Tank Dress. To pull the outfit together, we added the Gorjana Barrington Belt in Gold and added another touch of gold with the Palm Beach Lately Arrow Necklace.

What does your mom’s wedding album look like? Maybe Rapunzel’s Closet can help you re-create the iconic look just like Stephanie!

Free People Slip Away Pullover: $148.00
Velvet Andi Lace Tank Dress: $150.00
Gorjana Barrington Belt: $58.00
Palm Beach Lately Arrow Necklace: $78.00

Steal This Look ~ North West’s Mama

17 Jul

Steal This Look: Kimmy K

We have to be honest. We kind of miss Kim Kardashian. The new mom has been in hiding since the June 15th birth of her and Kanye West’s daughter, North West. Sure, they named their child after an airline, but we still can’t deny that even though Kim had a few misses in the early stages of her pregnancy, she definitely has set some trends for both expectant mothers and Kardashian fans around the world.
blog

This week, we took a look from the Kardashian archive. Kim has never been shy about showing off her killer curves, and regardless of how you feel about the family empire, you cannot deny that they have mastered their signature style and never disappoint with their outfit creations.
blog

To mimic Kim’s daytime look, we chose one of the newest additions to Rapunzel’s Closet. With our latest shipment of Keepsake came the What You Got Peplum top. This white, figure hugging piece is perfect for many body types and can be worn during any season. For the bottoms, we chose the new Current/Elliott Ankle Skinny with Studs. These pants are a favorite among all of the Rapunzel girls and we are looking forward to continuing to style them in various ways when Fall comes around!

To add some color to this black and white construction, we added the CC Design Heart Necklace in hot pink. Feeling stressed after a night out with Kanye West? Light one of our XIEA Heart Candles and relax. Never underestimate the power of a lit candle!

So come visit us at Rapunzel’s Closet and make your own “Kardashian Kreation!” Come on, you know you want to!

Keepsake What You Got Top  Peplum Top: $114.00
Current/Elliott Ankle Skinny Jeans with Studs: $218.00
CC Design Heart Necklace: $55.00

Spotlight Item ~ Ashley

Spotlight Item: Ashley
blog

Ashley is not shy about her love of accessories. I wasn’t too shocked that out of all the Rapunzel’s ladies, Ashley was the only one to choose one of our trendy accessories as her Spotlight Item. After all, every girl knows no outfit is complete without accessorization!

“The CC Design Tassel is definitely my favorite necklace that we’re carrying at the moment. I love the different color wooden beads Christine uses and most of all, I’m obsessed with the turquoise. The hints of gold don’t hurt either!”

What’s your favorite piece? Come into Rapunzel’s Closet and see what your Spotlight Item says about you!

Steal This Look ~ Marilyn Monroe

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

Rachel’s Spotlight Item: Show Me Your Mumu Sarah Swing Tank
blog

It didn’t take me more than two seconds to pick out my Spotlight Item. The Show Me Your Mumu Sarah Swing Tank is, hands down, my favorite item we have in the store!

While pink is not a color that you’ll often find in my wardrobe, this Barbie-like top is definitely something I can see myself picking to wear for a night out with the girls. I’d choose distressed cut-off shorts or perhaps my favorite white jeans to pair with it. Since the top by itself makes quite a few statements, I would keep my accessories minimal. The less outfit choices I have to make, the better off I am!

Stop into Rapunzel’s Closet and see what your Spotlight Item says about you!

Show Me Your Mumu Sarah Swing Tank: $118.00

Spotlight Item: Stephanie
blog

Stephanie had a particularly easy time picking out her Spotlight Item. Just the day before I asked her to pick out her favorite item, we had received a brand new line at the store called Goddis. Known for their knitwear, Goddis is what’s on all the girl’s minds. It’s no surprise that our Store Manager Stephanie, called dibs on the Indie Shorts for her item!

“As soon as we got these shorts, I immediately put them on display in the front of the store. They’re so different and unlike anything we have in stock right now. Everybody can appreciate a classic jean short, but these Indie Shorts are something I can definitely justify buying for my summer wardrobe!” –Stephanie

Come in and pick out your Spotlight Item and see what they say about you!

Goddis Indie Short-$123.00
