Rapunzel's Closet Spring Style by Not Daydreams

Hey guys! Not Daydreams styled the windows for Palm Beach boutique Rapunzel's Closet (again!!) for early spring. I focused each window styling on three very unique types of women in Palm Beach.

Window 1: Hello, Jakie O
The young modern/classic lady. Contradictory? No! This girl loves the classic icons and is inspired by their style but she is flirty and modern thus the shorter hemlines ;)
*Photo's were taken at night due to the sun's strong reflection during the day. 

From Right:
1) Finders Keepers, Know Your Know Dress, biscotti/pink, $185
2) Finders Keepers, Distant Dreamer Dress, white, $143 (sold out by the time photo was taken)
3) Keepsake Jane Dress, silver, $165
Finders Keepers, Distant Dreamer Dress, white, $143

Window 2: Gallery Girl
Middle window channels an artistic girl. She loves to paint and the arts in general. Her style is simple, chic and youthful. From buying arts supplies to attending gallery openings she doesn't compromise taste  to be fleetingly trendy (nor does she need to wear all black). 

From Left:
1) Chaser Hi/lo Slub tee, $62
AG Stilt Roll Up Jeans, white, $165
Julie Pueblo Scarf, $ 160

2) Finders Keepers, Mood for Love Dress, $130

3) Jen's Pirate Booty Goodness, $176
Patterson J. Kincaid Rickey leather vest, $298

4) Minnie Rose Cashmere Powowo top, $275
AG Stilt Jeans, femme $172

Window 3: Catch Me If You Can
Final Window is for the traveling girl. Jet setting or sailing she likes to be on the go. She is confident, traveled and intelligent. 

Minnie Roes Cotton Crochet V-Neck, $279
JBrand Twill pants, coral, $169

Patterson J. Kincaid Handlai dress, $228

Joie Basla Denim tank, $108
Joie Alexandra B Twill shorts, $138
Love Quote scarf, $88

I had a blast working with this awesome boutique and the lovely ladies there. Here's a few "behind the scenes" shots.

ya'll know I love flowers! ;)

Lace Romper and Lavender Hair

I always gravitate towards shorter hemlines since moving from Toronto, Canada to Palm Beach, Florida. I belted the boxy romper to create a waist line that was missing. The pop of color comes from my purple/ lavender layer of hair that blends really well with the blonde hair when all curled together. I love the colored hair trend. I love Frederic Fekkai Technician Color Care conditioner to preserve my color and repair my hair. 

romper: BCBG
belt: Gucci
shoes: Michael Kors
bag: Cole Haan
coat: vintage

Love Story for Valentine's Day

Eurydice and Orpheus were young and in love. So deep was their love that they were practically inseparable. So dependent was their love that each felt they could not live without the other. These young lovers were very happy and spent their time frolicking through the meadows. One day Eurdice was gaily running through a meadow with Orpheus when she was bitten by a serpent. The poison of the sting killed her and she descended to Hades immediately.
Orpheus was son of the great Olympian god Apollo. In many ways Apollo was the god of music and Orpheus was blessed with musical talents. Orpheus was so sad about the loss of his love that he composed music to express the terrible emptiness which pervaded his every breath and movement. He was so desperate and found so little else meaningful, that he decided address Hades. As the overseer of the underworld, Hades heart had to be hard as steel, and so it was. Many approached Hades to beg for loved ones back and as many times were refused. But Orpheus' music was so sweet and so moving that it softened the steel hearted heart of Hades himself. Hades gave permission to Orpheus to bring Eurydice back to the surface of the earth to enjoy the light of day. There was only one condition--Orpheus was not to look back as he ascended. He was to trust that Eurydice was immediately behind him. It was a long way back up and just as Orpheus had almost finished that last part of the trek, he looked behind him to make sure Eurydice was still with him. At that very moment, she was snatched back because he did not trust that she was there. When you hear music which mourns lost love, it is Orpheus' spirit who guides the hand of the musicians who play it.
