Closet Gossip: Gift Guide Part 6 ~ Hallie

7 Dec

Here at Rapunzel’s Closet, the girls have started to find themselves wondering who will be on their lists this year and what the perfect gift for that special someone may be. For “Rapunzel’s Gift Giving Guide,” we had a few of our most thoughtful selling associates narrow down and pick two of their favorite items that they hope to be giving holiday season. Yesterday we featured Ashley’s picks. Today is all about Hallie. Hallie has logged the most years out of all of us at Rapunzel’s Closet and loves being able to work on the sales floor when she visits from our corporate office in NYC!

Our store buyer, Hallie functions as Rapunzel’s eyes and ears in the New York fashion scene. She is the one who sifts through countless vendors and merchandise to make sure our store is always stocked with the hottest trends. Hallie continued used her expertise in product selection when she chose our new Equipment button-downs and Chewbeads necklaces as her top picks for our Holiday Gift Guide.

The brand Equipment’s French origin is apparent in the slick lines and rich fabrics they use in their clothing. Rapunzel’s just received some great new pieces for the holiday season and the French sophistication is consistent throughout the different styles. With that, Hallie chose the Slim-Fit Signature button-down blouse in the star print as her favorite.

“My newest obsession is shirting – I feel like no matter what – a blouse always looks good. My Equipment blouses have become my go to pieces for everything and it’s an easy wearable gift for basically any body type.” 

Keeping in mind the new moms we may be shopping for this year, Hallie also chose the Chewbeads Hudson necklace as her second choice in our Gift Guide. Like their name suggests, these necklaces are made from 100% silicone are safe for babies and toddlers to chew on. Not only are these necklaces easy to keep clean, but they also make a fun fashion statement, at the same time.

“What I love about Chewbeads is that they are not only functional but fashionable too! It’s the perfect holiday gift for any new mom. They are soothing for the teething baby who chews on everything – but mom can still wear these big, chunky, bright necklaces after the teething is done.”

Equipment Signature button-down: $248.00
Chewbeads Hudson necklace: $40.00

Here at Rapunzel’s Closet, the girls have started to find themselves wondering who will be on their lists this year and what the perfect gift for that special someone may be. For “Rapunzel’s Gift Giving Guide,” we had a few of our most thoughtful selling associates narrow down and pick two of their favorite items that they hope to be giving holiday season. Yesterday we featured Rachel’s picks. Today is all about Ashley who is one of our two sales associates who have been on our selling team the longest!

Ashley is the quintessential Palm Beach girl—with a heavy emphasis on “beach.” When Ashley isn’t at work, you can usually find her catching some rays at the beach or catching some fish out on the boat! So, it’s no surprise that Ashley plans on giving her fellow beach combing friends and family some beach-chic pieces this holiday season: a pair of TKEES flip flops and one of our new coolchange maxis.

TKEES are a staple in any South Florida girl’s shoe collection. Their classic thong style make them an easy present for all ages. They can be easily dressed up or dressed down and come in a variety of colors to match any wardrobe. And their reasonable price of $50 makes this gift idea only that much sweeter.

“I fell in love with TKEES a couple years ago. My friends and I were always on the hunt for the perfect nude shoe. Most of us only live a five minute walk from the beach, so being barefoot is like a second-nature for us. Having a shoe that gives that look is so our style. I know any one of my girlfriends would love these and would probably start to collect all of the colors!”

Rapunzel’s recently welcomed the brand coolchange to our sales floor, and these bright, bohemian prints are quickly becoming a favorite for some of our most fashionable customers. This Bali-inspired brand of resort-wear comes in great colors and will likely be making appearances all over Palm Beach this holiday season.

“I love giving CoolChange dresses as gifts—not only is every single piece gorgeous, but they are light-weight and super comfortable. Every girl needs a dress that’s easy to throw on after a long day out on the boat or at the beach. You don’t need to sacrifice style for comfort, and I’ll definitely be putting this maxi on MY wish list this year!”

TKEES: $50.00
CoolChange maxi: $205.00

Palm Beach Prep is the theme of my holiday gifts. Now that the winter weather forcing us to cover up a bit more than usual, the perfect sweater may just be best gift to give this holiday.

Minnie Rose makes a second appearance in our Gift Giving Guide with my choice the cotton Shaker striped sweater. The bright orange, lime and periwinkle blue stripes (among other colors) combine beautifully to make this comfy knit.

“When I first saw this sweater, I immediately thought of about 8 people who would love to get it as a gift. I can see it with a pair of white jeans and cute sandals or maybe even with a fun maxi skirt. While I usually go for more muted colors, these bright colors will catch anybody’s attention. I’m a little tempted to buy it for myself!”

The Oxford loafer has made big waves in fashion this season. And these Del Toro loafers add a new flavor to the classic shoe. The brand was started in Miami and is quickly becoming a major trend, even far beyond South Florida.

“These soft pink patent leather loafers are the epitome of retro girly-girl. I can definitely see my girlfriends wearing these with cute dresses or a cropped pant. They are simple enough that they’re understated and chic, yet different enough that they are unique. And as the brand gets more popular, I can see them showing off how they had them before everyone else started wearing them!”

Minnie Rose sweater: $165.00
Del Toro loafers: $325.00
