Mama Knows Best ~ Steph

30 Jul

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.”

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

Fashion Icon ~ Sarah

We’re debuting our new “Fashion Icon” Series this week.
All of the Rapunzel Girls are dishing on who inspires our daily duds!

Sarah’s Fashion Icon: Sienna Miller
blog Sarah has spent a lot of time around celebrities and their style. Having lived in New York City for ten years, she has tried and tested all kinds of different trends before finally settling on her signature style—bohemian chic. At the forefront of Sarah’s list of style inspirations is English actress, Sienna Miller. Known for her flower-child threads and earthy beauty, she has helped create the style that is mimicked across the world. We had Sarah put together an outfit of her favorite Rapunzel’s styles that she could see Sienna sporting on any given occasion.
blog
Sarah’s creation consists of the Free People Forest Nymph Tunic, a Fig & Bella Fringe Scarf, the Joe’s Jeans distressed Easy Cutoff Short and then topped off by one of the newest pieces by CC Design.

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
