Alice and thePirates; Scent of Rapunzel (Reserve)

Scent of Rapunzel reserve went up recently, slated to start on 2/25/2011 Which would be... probably just enough time for me to decide whether I want to go for it or not. Because... AatP is quickly becoming my favorite brand for prints (Mary Magdalene will remain forever stylistically, my favorite). I love fairy tales, and I love fairy tale inspired prints. I passed on Cinderella Jewelry because it was a little too sweet, Scent of Rapunzel, barring the slightly OT name is a nice balance.

It's definitely got it's roots in Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella Jewelry that was released last year. An interesting design twist is the braid running along the bottom, I think it's a really excellent detail.

I'm in love with this JSK design. The side lacing, the ribbons, the cut- it's gorgeous. The only thing that has me wavering about this is the colorway. My top picks would be ivory or black, but in general all the colorways are a little ehh. Something is just a tad off about them.

I do have to say though, the scissor accessories are gorgeous! If I pass on the print itself, I still might have to get the earrings.


  1. im in love with this print, i love the black/pink colorway ..there is a possibility i might get it

  2. Ohh, this is really beautiful!
    It's ironic that this is coming out, when Disney's Tangled just came out earlier this past year. Though I don't think I'll be getting it, it really is a gorgeous print~

  3. I like the print with the tower and the red roses, I'd like to see more illustrative prints like that

  4. The print is quite cute, but the accessories! They are simply amazing!
