Steal This Look ~ Coachella

17 Apr

Steal This Look: Festival Threads

Music festivals are a classic part of American culture. You pack up your tent, toothbrush, and music fanatic friends for a weekend-long camping trip—all for the sake of music. Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California is just as famous for its fashion trends as it is for its musical line-up. While Palm Beach is a few thousand miles away from the festival of flower children, there’s no reason why we can’t sport some trendy Coachella looks for everyday wear. Afterall, SunFest is right around the corner. blog

Mixing patterns, fabrics, and styles is completely acceptable, if not necessary, when dressing for a music festival. Add a flower headband and you’re front-row ready. We mixed some of our favorite items to create a look that is just as much at home in South Florida as it is in the lawn seats of Coachella.

On top we chose the Joie Natesa Eyelet Short Sleeve Top. The eyelet print is soft and feminine and the loose fit is ideal for sunny Spring days. On the bottom we went for a darker pair of J Brand Cord Shorts in the color Vintage Basin. These sexy cut-offs offset the shirt’s volume and are an ode the classic corduroy styles of the sixties and seventies.

To finish off the look, we added a Daydreams, Not Dreams Flower Headband and two layered necklaces. The Coachella rule is: “When you think you’re wearing enough, add another accessory.”

Come into Rapunzel’s and create your own festival look. And make sure to get a good seat to the show!

Joie Natesa Eyelet Top: $218.00
J Brand Cord Cut-Off in Vintage Basin: $154.00
Daydreams, Not Dreams Flower Headband: $77.00
Rapunzel’s Jewelry Box Wrapped Lapis Geode Necklace: $58.00
Palm Beach Lately Arrow Necklace: $78.00

Decade: Looking Backwards and Forward!

19 Dec

We finish up our “Decade: Where It All Began” series with the final questions in our interview with Rapunzel herself, Randi Evans Siegal. We hope you have enjoyed this walk down memory lane as much as we have enjoyed putting it all together! blog

1. What has surprised you the most about the business in the last 10 Years?
RES: In the last 10 years I’ve seen a lot of stores go in and out, but there is a good group of us who have been consistent and are on the Island to stay. I’m most surprised that my not-so-typical Palm Beach style has been so attractive to the locals. blog

2. Where do you envision the business 10 Years from now?
RES: In 10 Years I envision the same, though I would like a larger children’s store. I just need to find the right “space.” I love how the adult store merchandise changes with the times but is still consistent to the core. blog3. What is your favorite thing about the business today?
RES: Definitely the employees! Everyone pitches in and the store + the merchandise really represents all of our individual style.
blog
4. If you were a customer what would your favorite items in the store be?
RES: I love the skinny cords in bright colors that we have right now from Citizens of Humanity, Hudson Jeans, J Brand and AG Jeans. The concert band tees from Chaser LA are my favorite go-to casual tees. Last but not least TKEES flip flops. I wear them every day, even on a day in NYC where it’s in the 50s.

5. What is the funniest thing that has happened in the past 10 Years that maybe wasn’t funny at the time but now you can look back and laugh?
RES: I once had a customer come in with a parrot on her shoulder. The parrot pooped in the store. Looking back it’s pretty funny!

We Shoot Rain or Shine or Blazing Heat

12 Oct

blog

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 Stunning Gia with her hair up waiting to dash out and do a quick shot in this fabulous Elizabeth and James Lori Chiffon Tank and Nichole Skirt.
 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!

Vegas: FUN!

28 Aug

While I’d like to tell you that we had our fabulous best on for both nights of our Vegas partying – that was not the case. We went from the airport to the ENK Show and hit up the Hudson Jeans/ENK Cocktail party directly after the show. While our airport attire is chic (of course) there isn’t a whole lot of new “what we wore” to discuss. Here are a few snaps of our visit to Surrender Night Club at the Encore Hotel. Note the cheesy poolside glamour shots!

blog blog Night 2 we were able to do a wardrobe change post show for our fabulous dinner at STK. Loved the booming 80s soundtrack, loved the company and loved the truffled fries even more! YUM! We were joined by our friend Erica and her man Tal who were also attending the shows in Vegas. Erica is a huge advocate for Save the Garment District – something near and dear to us too! blog

Here we told Erica and Randi to give us their sassiest STK cool girl pose. blog

Here’s a snap of Kristin and I right before our burrata and heirloom tomato salad is served! Worth every calorie. blog

Our evening didn’t end at STK but we can’t show you those pictures because we left those good times in Vegas! 

Until next year – we’re counting the days already!!

What we wore: J Brand, Lanston, Citizens of Humanity, Nanette Lepore (shout out to Erica) Love Quotes and of course our favorite heels from Louboutain and Gucci
