Closet Gossip: Randi’s Style Obsessions

18 Mar

Contrary to popular belief, not all princesses love pink dresses and diamond tiaras. Randi, aka Rapunzel, is more likely to rock edgy looks comprised of ripped jeans; band t-shirts and Chuck Taylors than her fairy-tale namesake.

Camouflage is no longer for the rugged duck hunter. The Equipment Sloane Crew Sweater in Desert Storm has just enough of a feminine touch be appealing for even a girly-girl. With the Hudson Krista Crop in the Blondie wash on bottom, this look only needs a simple, dark-toned Love Quotes Scarf. We chose the Espresso color to amp up the “camo” trend.

For the sake of style, we did a quick-change on top. We replaced the Equipment sweater with the Cotton by Autumn Cashmere Crochet Skull Sweater in Tangelo. The simple front of the sweater is made up by the intricacy of the skull design on the back. If you’ve spent any time in New York recently, you’ll know that this skull design is EVERYWHERE and Randi wanted to make sure that this style was available for her customers. If orange is too far out of your comfort zone, this sweater also comes in Black and Dark Navy.

So if you’re like Randi and would rather be rocking out to Bon Jovi than partaking in preppy princess duties, come pick up some of Randi’s style obsessions. You’ll be the belle of the ball rock show.

1.       How did you get the nickname Rapunzel?
RES: My dad gave it to me when I was born.  I think he really liked the name Rapunzel and to this day, still calls me by it.

2.       How did you decide on the Rapunzel’s Branding? The RC logo, bag/tissue colors?
RES: My grandma’s favorite color was purple, and when I was little she had a gift shop in the front of my grandpa’s postcard company’s warehouse.  So I wanted a purple store.  And I thought the lime green was a good accent color to go with it.
3.       What was your favorite part about owning the gift shop?
RES: My favorite part of the shop was merchandising.  I loved moving things around, cleaning and reorganizing. (It’s still my favorite part today)

4.       What gift item was your favorite to sell?
RES: My favorite gift item to sell were the wooden animal clocks.  They were so unique, and handmade in the US. I loved selling them and sometimes I was even able to customize them.  We once made a blue pelican for the Palm Beach Day School auction.
