Steal This Look ~ Amanda Seyfried

7 Aug

Steal This Look: Amanda Seyfried
blog

Maybe it’s the intense heat that has befallen Palm Beach, but we find ourselves looking forward to Fall fashions. Now don’t get us wrong, we are loving corals and neon’s just as much as the next Island girl, but for some reason, we are finding ourselves drawn to darker shades and boyish trends.

For this week’s Steal This Look blog we are looking to the beautiful, Amanda Seyfried, for our inspiration. Amanda’s casual style tends to drift more towards basics, jeans, and sneakers—which are trends that Rapunzel’s Closet is known for!

To re-create this look, we paired our new Joie Pinot Plaid Blouse with our new brand, Anine Bing Jean Shorts. Though Amanda wears pants in the inspiration shot, we realized that it may be more realistic for a Florida girl to wear a jean cut-off—at least until you can no longer fry an egg on the sidewalk!

Like Amanda, we added a pop of red with a Love Quote Scarf in True Love. With hints of red in the plaid of the shirt, this addition brightens up the look and takes it a step above casual!

Whose look would you steal for a day? Let Rapunzel’s Closet help you pick it out and put it together!

Steal This Look ~ Jennifer Aniston

Steal This Look: The Aniston Effect
blog

This marks the second time that Jennifer Aniston has made it to our “Steal This Look” feature. The first blog focused on Jen’s casual, comfortable style—but this week, we’re looking at what the forty-something star wears that keeps her on almost every guy’s list of celebrity crushes—leather!

Sure, Florida’s Summer isn’t the most ideal time of year to wear leather, but we have taken Jen’s look from the People’s Choice Awards and made it an ideal choice for a night out in South Florida!
blogWe paired the Patterson J. Kincaid Polly Flirty Skirty with a sheer Vince Tank to mock Jen’s Dior dress. Because the top is see-through, we thought our Top Secret Lacey’s Secret bralette would be a perfect way to not only prevent any wardrobe malfunctions, but also accessorize and add some edge!

To top off the look, we added a Leighelena genuine anaconda wide cuff bracelet and a Lauren Merkin Eve leather clutch.

So take a fashion risk and add a little leather to your closet…trust Jennifer, she’s obviously doing something right!

Patterson J. Kincaid: Polly Flirty Skirty: $348.00
Vince Muscle Tee: $195.00
Top Secret Lacey’s Secret Bralette: $50.00
Leighelena Wide Cuff Bracelet: ON SALE for $72.00

Kid’s Korner ~ Outfitting a Prince

25 Jul

Did you happen to hear that there was a new member of the Royal Family born this week? I spent the better part of Monday and Tuesday in the Palm Beach airport trying to get back to New York City after the Miami Swim Show so I watched every second of coverage of this historical event. Funny side note – I spent the Royal Wedding in a Florida airport too. I guess that’s mah thang. Maybe I should say “thanks” to LGA for having so many issues this week because if it wasn’t for flight delays – I would have missed all the action. :/

All this baby talk got us thinking about outfits that we’d pick out for Prince George if his Mom Kate came to shop at Lil Rapunzel’s. Here’s what Esther and Ashley came up with!

Steal This Look ~ North West’s Mama

17 Jul

Steal This Look: Kimmy K

We have to be honest. We kind of miss Kim Kardashian. The new mom has been in hiding since the June 15th birth of her and Kanye West’s daughter, North West. Sure, they named their child after an airline, but we still can’t deny that even though Kim had a few misses in the early stages of her pregnancy, she definitely has set some trends for both expectant mothers and Kardashian fans around the world.
blog

This week, we took a look from the Kardashian archive. Kim has never been shy about showing off her killer curves, and regardless of how you feel about the family empire, you cannot deny that they have mastered their signature style and never disappoint with their outfit creations.
blog

To mimic Kim’s daytime look, we chose one of the newest additions to Rapunzel’s Closet. With our latest shipment of Keepsake came the What You Got Peplum top. This white, figure hugging piece is perfect for many body types and can be worn during any season. For the bottoms, we chose the new Current/Elliott Ankle Skinny with Studs. These pants are a favorite among all of the Rapunzel girls and we are looking forward to continuing to style them in various ways when Fall comes around!

To add some color to this black and white construction, we added the CC Design Heart Necklace in hot pink. Feeling stressed after a night out with Kanye West? Light one of our XIEA Heart Candles and relax. Never underestimate the power of a lit candle!

So come visit us at Rapunzel’s Closet and make your own “Kardashian Kreation!” Come on, you know you want to!

Mama Knows Best ~ Sarah

Mama Knows Best: Sarah’s Mom

Every girl should know that there is no trend is an original. Nothing is new and sometimes the best way to be fashionably inspired is to look at old pictures of our moms, aunts, grandmothers, and even our dads! (In case you didn’t know, our dads were definitely the original hipsters.)

Here at Rapunzel’s Closet we respect all things fashion, so we decided what better way to pay homage to the fashionistas before us, then to create some looks inspired by our mothers—our first ever style icons.

Sarah is currently the face of Rapunzel’s Closet. When we asked her to bring in a picture of her mother, PJ, we weren’t too shocked that she presented us with one of her mom’s original test shots from her early modeling days! Good looks definitely run in that family!
blog With this gorgeous shot of PJ as our inspiration, we put together a couple things that Sarah’s mom would definitely be sporting during her modeling days! blog PJ is wearing a men’s style button-down; we thought the Equipment Signature Blouse would work perfectly to help us re-create this mom-inspired look.  And since the skinny jean had yet to make a splash, we thought the Joe’s Visionaire Boot Cut Jean would give the retro look the finish it needs. Throw on some TKEES or even better, some high platforms and you’ve got the look!

Way to go, Sarah’s mom! Thanks for inspiring us!

In order to recreate this iconic look, we chose the Goddis Liv Wrap Sweater in the soft neutral tones.. Whether you throw this sweater over a bathing suit after a day at the beach, or choose to pair it with a tank and linen pants, it’s soft tones and comfy shape make this Goddis item an ideal addition to any Rapunzel shopper’s collection.

Spotlight Item ~ Rachel

24 Jun

Rachel’s Spotlight Item: Show Me Your Mumu Sarah Swing Tank
blog

It didn’t take me more than two seconds to pick out my Spotlight Item. The Show Me Your Mumu Sarah Swing Tank is, hands down, my favorite item we have in the store!

While pink is not a color that you’ll often find in my wardrobe, this Barbie-like top is definitely something I can see myself picking to wear for a night out with the girls. I’d choose distressed cut-off shorts or perhaps my favorite white jeans to pair with it. Since the top by itself makes quite a few statements, I would keep my accessories minimal. The less outfit choices I have to make, the better off I am!

Stop into Rapunzel’s Closet and see what your Spotlight Item says about you!

Steal This Look ~ Whitney Port

19 Jun

Steal This Look: Whitney City

blog
Whitney Port started her career as Lauren Conrad’s co-worker in MTV’s, “The Hills.” However, it was Whitney’s chic threads and laid-back attitude that got her noticed against the backdrop of the loud, Hollywood drama. Once MTV gave Whitney her own show, “The City,” the spotlight was now solely on her and she had the stage she needed to make her fashion statements. With that, Ms. Port will be our inspiration for this week’s Steal This Look!

blog

As a frequent attendee of rock festivals, Whitney has got her casual style down to a T. We chose this pic of Whitney in a top that looks shockingly similar to our Generation Love Vinnie Animal Print Tee. While Whitney pairs the black and white printed top with a pair of Aztec printed shorts, we chose a more basic bottom by adding the Rae Francis Jace Short. The scalloped hem adds a feminine touch to the navy and royal blue shorts and is a nice contrast to the printed top.

Add a pair of Black Tie Tkees and your Whitney-inspired duds are complete. Now buy that concert ticket and get your summer started! Live your life like the cameras follow you! After all, that’s what Whitney does!

Generation Love Vinnie Animal Print Tee: $128.00
Rae Francis Jace Shorts: $222.00
Tkees in “Black Tie”: $50.00
