Closet Gossip: Gift Guide Part 4 ~ Rachel

5 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 Kristen’s picks. Today is all about yours truly – Rachel the newest member of the Rapunzel’s Closet team!

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

Trade In Your Heels For Slippers!

10 Oct

blogAs a Buyer who lives in NYC, I’m constantly stalking people on the street to find out what they are wearing. As I rode the subway downtown a couple weeks, I found myself staring at a girl standing across from me. I wanted her outfit from head to toe – and mainly the toe part. She was wearing the Del Toro Smoking Slippers that I had been dying over for months. I’m sure the girl was relieved when I finally stopped staring and asked her if she was in fact wearing the Del Toro Smoking Slippers. Silly me – I didn’t notice the signature grosgrain ribbon at the back heel.

When I got back to the office and did some more research on my new obsession, I was pleased to find out that the Co-Founder and Creative Director Matthew Chevallard spent part of his childhood in Palm Beach, FL. What a perfect match for our stores! We love “local” talent on our fashion floor! Needless to say – our first shipment of Del Toro Smoking Slippers has arrived and they are already a hit!
blogThese shoes embody the term “feminine menswear.” They are a great alternative to the ballet flat you’ve been wearing for years and they are perfectly tailored to go with your favorite skinny jeans, pencil skirts and little dresses. Trade in your heels for a pair of these slippers, you won’t be disappointed! (I’m not!)
