Lirone Glikman, a young and hip Personal Branding and Networking Consultant who is currently building her own business turned to What We Wear to style her for a new website she’s launching.

Lirone Glikman is a Personal Branding, Networking and Marketing specialist, who has worked in leading international corporate and media bodies across Australia and Israel for the past 12 years. Lirone provides tips and techniques on how to network and define one’s personal brand in effective ways, both on and offline. One of her goals is to help her clients understand the power of their clothes and appearance as a way of controlling the impression they leave on others.

Lirone works with entrepreneurs, business owners, students and anyone who is looking to get more out of their life and career. She helps these individuals identify the personal assets that are unique to them and teaches them how to use these assets to their advantage.

Lirone turned to us at What We Wear to help her choose the best outfits to express her sparkling and vivid personality, and at the same time her professional and business oriented mind. Our goal was to achieve the “business look” but with a little twist- adding something fashionable, young, fun to her outfits to express her personality. We went for looks that exude professionalism but also style, chic, and confidence. Since Lirone’s business involves office time, meetings in and out of the office and a dynamic schedule, we put together outfits that could take her from office meeting to business lunch to client dinner.

Outfit number 1: suit jacket, silk top, pink ruched high waisted skirt, vintage purse, large gold jewelry, crème peep-toes

Outfit number 2: belted high waist skirt, print mesh button down blouse, silver chains and necklaces, canvas “biker” jacket

Outfit number 3: bright blue layered puffy high waisted skirt, bright orange top, cropped Sgt. Pepper jacket with golden cuffs

Outfit number 4: flower petal mesh tunic, cropped leather vest, leather waist belt, leggings, high heeled sandals

Lirone used the tools and confidence we gave her to put together an outfit which she used for a photoshoot at Freezer Photography Studio.

“Freezer” is a studio that specializes in photoshoots for fashion, jewelry, industrial design, portraits and performances. “Freezer” gives you the opportunity to freeze a given moment, whether inside the studio or outside of it without ever compromising the quality of the image.

We truly hope that spring has arrived to your home town because it surely hit ours!

The lovely warm weather and all the flowers that are blooming right now make us crave flowy dresses, hats and of course our favorite accessory- vests. So of course we decided to go boho chic on this post and show you how the look can be achieved.

Rony wore an  A-lined collar navy and white checkered dress. The layers of the dress along with the striped brownish gray vest looked fabulous on Rony and really flattered her shape. She wore nomad-like suede flat booties and a men’s straw panama hat. Sometimes it’s fun to steal from the boys, masculine accessories give feminine dresses a cool twist.

I wore a long floral dress sewn by none other than my mother and moi! The short puffy sleeves of the dress flatter my arms and the high waisted shape combined with the long length would give anyone a beautifully long silhouette. My strappy camel wedges probably helped with the long silhouette 🙂 But flats will look fabulous as well!

Oh the bohemian life… flowy dresses, cool jewelry, awesome music and art and a chilled lifestyle.. sound good? Sounds amazing to us!

So take a walk on the beach, enjoy the sand and the breeze and the sun! But don’t forget to stop for some refreshments in the hot weather!

We may call ourselves “fashionistas” but that doesn’t mean we like to take ourselves too seriously. We love fooling around and even acting immature sometimes; age is but a number!

Since we were pretty much style obsessed as soon as we came out the womb, for this photoshoot we decided to revisit our little girl selves. The wooden playground we visited happens to also be an absolutely gorgeous backdrop for our fabulous outfits.

A true girl’s girl, Vera always loved tutus and lots of pink. The pink tutu miniskirt she wore here is cute and girly, but also has romantic and antique qualities. With it she wore a knit net blouse over a button down shirt. She put her hair up in little buns just as she did when she was little. To complete the look she wore a pearl and flowers necklace and black and cream patent flats.

The print knit vest I wore looks exactly like the one I had in preschool, fashion does repeat itself! I wore the vest over a striped button down shirt with peach shorts and leopard print booties. I completed the look with a large pastel stones drop necklace, big rings and of course my oversized bow hair tie.

A styling tip we borrowed from our kid selves is wearing lots of pastels. They don’t even have to “match”, but lots of light candy colors are eye catching and flattering, and totally right for summer.

An interesting way of layering clothes is wearing long over short, like Vera did with her cropped vest over a long button down shirt over her short skirt. This creates beautiful volume in the outfit and makes it unexpected.

So when life gets a little too serious, we recommend making a play date with your friends and having lots of childish fun! We played so nice we even got a lollipop treat!

Hello boys and girls,

On a recent episode of 90210, AnnaLynne McCord’s character Noami wore my necklace!!!
Well the one she wore wasn’t mine per say but was the same as the one I have 🙂
I got this H&M necklace in Bracelona last fall, which of course adds a cool factor.

I wore it first Naomi!
What can I say, the show’s stylist has a great taste in jewelry 🙂 and this goes to show that even on a  television series that can afford designer clothes for the stars to wear, sometimes low budget can be even more fabulous and fashionable!

Until next time,

xoxo

Spring is in the air: The birds are chirping, the air is getting warm and the flowers are in bloom. What a romantic time! Now is the perfect opportunity to wear your most romantic, hippy clothes and be sure to wear some flowers in your hair 🙂

Lace, flower prints, flowy fabrics, embroidery, light vests should all be part of your fashion vocabulary this season. Spring time is great time to wear closed shoes and booties without the need for tights and before it gets too hot and balmy.

Vera was hot in 70’s chic with an embroidered handmade blouse from the Ukraine which she wore with a denim jacket, boot cut dark jeans, brown braid belt, two-toned faux croc heels and gold jewelry.

I wore an embroidered flower print dress with a vintage lace vest, waist cinching belt, colorful scarf which I wore as a head band, high heeled booties and a vintage gold necklace.

Now is a great time to get in touch with nature, explore and hike. Or if you’re a city girl/guy like we are, look for a spot of nature in the city where you can find your serenity.

Let’s be nice to planet Earth and be environmentally friendly; after all it is our only home!

Hello friends,

We love you so much we decided to take you shopping with us! Summer is fast approaching so we decided to go scavenge some wardrobe staples for the upcoming hot weather.

From Dior to Urban Outfitters, flowy dresses in cool prints are going to be big this season. We found layered mini dresses in cool zig zag prints for only $10!

Cool sheer tops can get you a long way – breezy enough to be worn during the day with shorts, dressy enough to be worn in the evening with a smart pant or high waisted skirt. We particularly liked the ones we spotted in black and hot pink, a color that is always big in summer and looks great with sun kissed skin.

As all you fashionistas must know, accessories can really make the outfit. We loved this orange faux leather bag, it will definitely give any outfit a serious color boost. Jimmy Choo’s summer collection offers a few citrus colored croc bags, as does Blugirl. But guess what, the bag we found was only $15!!

We love retro, going retro is always a great way to be unique and feminine. These polka dot high waisted skirts have just the right fix of 50’s chic and are breezy and light so will be great in the hot summer months. Kate Spade’s summer 2012 collection featured a similar skirt, and polka dots in general were big in the resort collections. For more accessible prices, Topshop has some cool 50’s inspired skirts in flowery prints.

Just because summer means bathing suits and being half naked doesn’t mean we can neglect our style and good taste! There are plenty of accessories that we can play with and plenty of cool options of what to wear over the swimsuit.

The hats we tried on, for example, are very St. Tropez. Similar ones were seen at Blumarine’s resort collection and at Alice + Olivia.

Take advantage of time you have off for spring break and go shopping with friends, mom, or by yourslef! Remember, money can’t buy taste and good style can be found even at low prices.
We would love to hear about your summer staples and what you plan to wear when it gets hot!

The upcoming holidays are the perfect opportunity to spend festive quality time with your family.
Vera and I decided to share our outfits for our families’ celebrations of Passover.

Vera wore a sheer chiffon button down blouse with a polka dot 50’s inspired high waisted skirt and bow belt with stiletto heels.
I wore a form fitting dress with a white collar and puffy sleeves. I wore peach heels and gold necklace and bangles.

What do you wear to family celebrations?
Happy Passover and Easter and happy spring everybody!
