#OOTD: Maxi Dress | Styled 2 Ways

16 Jul

This week Steph and Christina are styling the Pink Stitch Resort Maxi Dress two different ways. Take it away Girls!

Steph:
Coastal Chic

I am in love with this Pink Stitch Resort Maxi Dress in Azure Blue. It’s the perfect flowy maxi for a hot summer day at Rapunzel’s.

During the day at work my “must haves” are  an arm full of Bourbon & Boweties Bracelets (coins & a sea of blue are my favorites) & TKEES on my feet. These days I can’t get enough of TKEES in Coco Butter and Sea Snake. I completed my mermaid look today with a pair of Sea Snake.

After work I can throw on a chunky beaded belt for a sunset cruise on the boat! (Margaritas are a non-negotiable!) I added an Annie Fischer Pineapple Pouch for my cell phone, lip gloss, sunnies & keys and I’m ready to go!

Christina:
A Preppy State of Dress

There is this little old saying that goes; you must always have the perfect little black dress. Well, on Palm Beach the perfect little black dress actually translates into the perfect little summer dress. When I set my eyes on the new Pink Stitch Resort Maxi Dress I just knew I had to have it. I went for an effortless chic look without all the fuss that goes into making an outfit.

Sometimes, it really is better to go with the saying, less is more. I made sure to keep the jewelry to a minimum only accenting it with Bourbon & Boweties Bracelets and a Zacasha tassel necklace. I knew I would be spending the day running errands around Palm Beach, so I made sure to keep the shoes simple. You can often catch me rocking my TKEES or some other fashionable flat around town. So leave all the fuss at home, grab your favorite clutch and aviator sunglasses and you’re good to go!

#DIY | Flower Pot Baby Shower Gift

23 Jun

Calling all moms, sisters, friends and grandmas! This is a fun and easy project you can do to add a spin to your loved one’s baby shower gift.  Follow along as we take you through a simple step by step process in creating the most one of a kind gift that she is sure to love.

Materials needed:

1)      Jammies (We recommend Jammies Pret-A-Porter) sold at Lil Rapunzel’s. These adorable onesies are perfect for adding color for your “flower pot” and we have sizes ranging from 0-3, 3-6, 6-9, and 9-12 months, all great for that growing baby.

2)      Ribbon – have fun with this. Feel free to pick a color related to the gender of the baby. You can also keep it simple with a neutral ribbon to create a more subtle look.

3)      Flowers – the only thing we recommend is that you don’t pick a flower that will over power the flower pot. Make sure you choose a flower that will balance it out. We went ahead and picked the Penta’s flower. But you could also pick from the following options too! Feel free to  keep all the flowers the same or you can mix it up so it looks like a real flower garden!blog

Let’s get started!
blog Select your onesie
blog Lay Flat

blog Begin to roll the onesie up – start at the bottom and and work your way up
blog Keep the onesie rolled, tie your ribbon around it

#OOTD: Camo Pants | Styled 2 Ways

20 Jun

When you work with a bunch of fashionable girls who like to snap things up at the store the second they arrive, there are a lot of times where we come to work in the same items! This was the case the other day with Christina and Hallie who both recently purchased the Current/Elliott Drawstring Lounge Trousers in the camo print. Because we all clearly have such different style this was the perfect opportunity to show how to wear these pants 2 different ways!
blog

Christina (pictured on the left) paired her pants with a navy tee tucked in. We’ve officially decided that we are loving the Navy/Camo combo she’s got going on here. What a great way to jazz up a very classic color! Christina completed her look with her favorite pair of TKEES in Cocobutter.

Hallie (pictured on the right) combined a few trends into one outfit. She paired her pants with a “trend of the minute” racer back crop top and a pair of strappy metallic sandals. Birkenstocks (another trend of the minute) would be super cute with this look too!

Both girls kept their jewelry simple – just a few Bourbon & Boweties bangles and sunnies of course!!

A couple of other tips:

  • Keep the top simple when you are wearing a print pant. Solids work best but if you are a risk taker/trend setter an easy print would work here too!
  • Make sure to balance out your look – if the pant is slouchy you want something a little sleeker on top.
  • Choose the correct shoes! Flip flops and flat sandals always work well and cute strappy wedges will dress up the look for evening.

Back to the kids, we again picked some of our newest and best selling items for you to check out! Let’s start with the little ladies…

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!

xoxo Rapunzel

Stache and Shop!

13 Nov

Stache and Shop
Have you noticed a stark increase in local guys checking out their facial hair in every mirror they pass? Yes, us too!

That must mean one thing-it must be “Movember”! Every man’s favorite month of the year! Where they are allowed, and expected, to grow a mustache to show support for men’s health.

blog

But the fun wasn’t just for the boys anymore, Rapunzel’s Closet decided to get in on the fun by hosting our very own Stache and Shop event! And lucky for us, our lovely lady customers somehow managed to still look gorge even with some full-on, facial fur! Only in Palm Beach!

Some of our favorite customers stopped by and received 20% off of their purchases, just for being good sports!

blog

“My boyfriend is having way too much fun “manscaping” his stache–I can’t wait to show him a picture of me with this on so he can see what I go through,” said one of our favorite shoppers while sporting a bright purple handlebar mustache. “And by then he wont have the heart to be mad at me for bringing home a pair of these Hudson jeans!”

Esther Knows Best!

Mama Knows Best-Our Store Mama! Esther!

blog

This week’s “Mama Knows Best” is a particularly special one. For those of who you frequent our kid’s store, you will most definitely know (and love) our very own Esther Evans! Recognize that last name? She’s Rapunzel’s mother! And as you can see from her retro chic pictures, style certainly runs in this family!

A California girl at heart, Esther knows the importance of a great outfit. We couldn’t help but be envious of her Groucho Marx sweater layered with a collared shirt—so easy to picture this same exact look in one of our favorite fashion blogs. I guess great style really is timeless!

While we don’t have any Marx Brothers memorabilia in our store at the moment, we decided to recreate this preppy look with some of our newest additions to our sales floor! On top, we have the Margaret O’Leary Petit Collared Crew sweater—the best part? It’s a two-fer! No layering necessary!

We thought the Splendid Circle Skirt would be perfect on the bottom. Notice our signature Tkee Flip Flops missing? Have no fear; these shoes are still by our favorite brand! The Tkees Senny’s are our new favorite shoe for the fall and winter months! We think they complement this look by adding to the prepster style!

blog

What do you think? Did we capture the “Essence of Esther”?

Margaret O’Leary Collar Crew Sweater: $150.00
Splendid Circle Skirt: $88.00
Tkees Sennys: $115.00
Rapunzel’s Jewelry Box Spike Cuff Bangle: $38.00
