Mama Knows Best ~ Hallie

Mama Knows Best: Hallie’s Mom
blog

Style seems to run in the families of all of our girls at Rapunzel’s Closet, and our buyer, Hallie, is no exception. Hallie’s mother, Beth-Anne, has obviously taught Hallie the importance of personal style; lucky for us, Hallie has landed herself a job where she can share this natural knack for style with all of us here at Rapunzel’s Closet.

“My mother has always stayed close to the trends of the season but likes to purchase classic pieces that are wardrobe mainstays and mix trends in as they come and go. I can definitely say that I take a similar approach to my personal style.”

This awesome picture of Beth-Anne has greatly inspired us—we find it hard not to imagine what her day in San Francisco was like when she had this picture taken! Exciting times and even more exciting styles!

To re-create this look we decided to play up the wide-leg flare with some Hudsons! The Mia Five-Pocket Flare is essential in this look. To duplicate her layered look, we paired the Vince V-Neck in Eggplant with a white Equipment Signature Blouse. Accessories include a pair of Rapunzel’s Jewelry Box Hoop Earrings and a retro, crochet Missoni Scarf! We are loving this look!
Thanks for inspiring us, Hallie’s Mom! Peace and Love!

Vince V-neck: $ 325.00
Equipment Signature Blouse: $208.00

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
Lauren Merkin Eve Leather Clutch: $200.00

Steal This Look ~ Mrs. Ryan Reynolds

13 Feb

blog
Every one of us knows a girl who seems to have it all: career, looks, style…former “Sexiest Man Alive” husband. Blake Lively is THAT girl for us! For this week’s Steal This Look feature we borrowed one of the Gossip Girl’s street style looks and did our own Closet Gossip spin on it.

The outfit that got our wheels turning was when Blake wore a form-fitting dress that hits well above the knee, with an oversized boyfriend blazer in a soft neutral color. With the dress being as fitted as it is, Blake was able to successfully tone down the look by pairing it with this blazer. Topping it off with a chunky necklace and neutral shoe makes this ensemble perfect for daytime. Remove the blazer and you’re ready to for a night out.

Challenge accepted. blog

Our version of Blake’s outfit consists of one of our favorite brands-Finders Keepers. Their pieces are bright, edgy, affordable and a little sexy—which was exactly what we needed for this look. As opposed to Blake’s basic navy dress, we opted for the fun print of the Finders Keepers, “Know You Now” dress. The pop of geographic pink against the nude sheath makes this dress versatile—a plus for any woman.

Next we added the Vince Blazer in Coastal Blue. Unlike Blake’s oversized boyfriend blazer, this Vince piece is cropped and makes it more wearable for any shape or size. The classic navy tones down the brightness of the dress.

We then added a few of our CC Design beaded necklaces to create the look of Blake’s chunky necklace. All you need to complete this look are some neutral heels or flats, and you’re set for a date with your sexiest man alive.

See you at Rapunzel’s!

XOXO, Closet Gossip Girl

New Feature: Steal This Look

18 Jan

Our guest blogger Rachel has been home sick with the flu so we thought we’d share her latest post to brighten her and everyone’s day!

Steal This Look: Duchess of Cambridge ~ Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton is the subject of our first “Steal This Look” post. A very fitting choice, considering that here at Rapunzel’s Closet we are inspired by all things “Princess.”

As soon as Kate first starting appearing in the media, we were been fascinated by her natural beauty and classic-cool style. Over time her style has transformed from sporty school girl to royal chic—always remaining a style icon to many.

This week we decided take one of the Duchess’ classic looks and put our own Palm Beach twist on it using some our favorite pieces from the store.

Of all of Kate’s looks, we loved her choice of threads when she visited Olympic Park back in March.  She stood out wearing bright colors while mixing in her signature timeless pieces. We tapped into our new Selling Associate Monica’s modeling skills to show how a few simple pieces can make you feel like a princess for a day.
blog

From head-to-toe Monica is wearing the Elizabeth and James Crepe Heather Blazer, Vince Double-Layer Long-sleeve striped shirt, and the Hudson Collin Skinny in Suede Rose.
If you look closely, you can see Monica is sporting one of Rapunzel’s new Palm Beach Lately Arrow necklaces—an understated accessory that we definitely can see Kate adding on to any of her outfits.

Elizabeth and James Crepe Heather Blazer: $495.00
Vince Long-sleeve Stripe Shirt: $125.00
Hudson Collin Skinny in Suede Rose: $165.00
Palm Beach Lately Arrow Necklace: $78.00

Nifty Gifty

11 Sep

blog Every year we head to the gift show and eagerly anticipate our favorite booth – the EGG booth. What do they do with all of these egg crates? Who sells them? What are they used for? These are the same questions we ask ourselves each year. But we digress – we don’t come to the gift show to shop for egg crates we come for more important things like ballerina tutus, socks and stuffed animals!

Our first stop at the show was the Chewbeads booth.
blog
If you are a mom and you have a teether you will love Chewbeads. The colorful beaded necklaces and bangles are both stimulating and soothing for your teething tots. Completely BPA free and child safe, this is the perfect gift for any new mom. The on trend color palatte and the fashion forward designs make these necklaces and bracelets a “must have” for all the IT Girls too! (No teething baby necessary!)blog

After Chewbeads we headed over to the Trumpette Socks booth. blog
No trip to the gift show would be complete without placing an order for socks that are designed to look like shoes! Our personal favorites are the ballet shoes for the ballerinas and the checkerboard skaters for the cool lil dudes.

We capped off our day with a visit to the JellyCat booth. blog
Although it appears that Esther is standing in the zoo, she is actually checking out the new additions to the JellyCat family.

 We didn’t just spend time in the Kid’s section of the show – we visited our personal fav Jonathan Adler who has a line of candles and soaps called “Palm Beach” (fab!)

We also started our collection of fancy coffee table books which you will see featured and for sale at Rapunzel’s Closet this holiday season. We’re obsessed with gorgeous books and we know some of you are too!

We hit the fancy food aisle for our mid-day snack – the big winner here was the caramel and pretzel corn. (We went back twice to this booth!)

What we wore:

Randi: David Lerner Leggings, Joie Sweater
Hallie: Joie Shorts, Vince Tank, Joie Boyfriend Sweater
Esther: 7 For All Mankind Jeans, Joie Sweater

Clearly a big day for Joie!

A Jolly Vince Holiday

20 Jul

It’s hard to get into the sweater buying spirit when it’s 100 degrees in the middle of July in NYC, but we did our best when we visited the Vince Showroom last week. The gorgeous color palatte and the cozy sweaters made us completely forget the sweltering subway rides we had just taken to get to the showroom.blog Greens, Hot Pinks and Cobalt blues were definitely big players in our holiday season selections.blog The Vince shirting options were abundant. We loved the green blouse pictured above and also bought a white silk blouse with some back pleating for the Holiday 2 delivery. Sorry no pix of the white blouse.

A big seller last year was this sweater in the carrot color. Vince brought it back in crimson for holiday and we love it just as much as the carrot. blog Last but definitely not least is the drape back blouse with beaded trim at the arms. Our lonely hanger shot totally does not do this blouse justice but we bought it in black and this taupe pictured here.
blogIt’s a great “going out” top and even though it’s not the most bra friendly, we’ll be pairing it with a Top Secret Sexy Back lace bandeau and hitting the town. This blouse has the perfect amount of drape at the back and the hem. Vince really hit the mark with this piece!
