Street performanceAs girls who have travelled and partied around the world, we can vouch for the fact that Tel Aviv has parties like nowhere else in the world.

The latest one we got to experience was a daytime street party which featured live dj and rock band performances, a runway show and some serious street dancing.

Rock star performanceWe loved what the singer of this band wore! So Couture!

Shenkin Street, a center of young and hip designer and vintage boutiques and a focal point for some of the city’s hottest individuals, had been undergoing renovations for the past few months. As the construction on the street ended, the city of Tel Aviv decided to throw a sort of “relaunch” party to celebrate the culture and fashion of Shenkin.

Ladies and Gents, we are thrilled to introduce our new Tel Aviv Street Style column! Tel Aviv is an up and coming fashion capital with its own say and unique quirky style. Some of the city’s more inspiring fashion stars are just the people walking down the street. Since we love to people watch so much, we decided to start documenting as well!

Come find us out and about in Tel Aviv or on one of our photo shoots and you may become the city’s brightest fashionista!

Who: Sandra, 26, works in Fashion Networking.


Wore: Peplum pale pink dress by Sandro, studded leather jacket by Bec & Bridge, high heels by Zensu, studded leather satchel by Zadig & Voltaire, gold bracelet by Sass & Bide, and oversized stone ring by Israeli designer.


Sandra, who is constantly travelling between Tel Aviv, Paris and Sydney, loves to wear steeper brands but will never buy their products at full price; rather, she has a way of finding all the hottest sales!

Who will be our next Street Style Star??

Dear friends,
The situation in Israel has been pretty scary in the past week, with violence emanating from the Hamas organization in Gaza towards Israel. Over 1500 missiles were launched in the past week alone, causing deaths and injuries on both sides. Needless to say, it was a very hard, stressful, and tense week! Such hard times call for unity and good deeds.
Israel Defense Forces soldiers and reservists were enlisted to the ongoing struggle and were based along Israel’s southern border with Gaza, putting their lives at risk to protect the citizens of the country.
Our close friend Sofie, who was tired of not being able to aid in the struggle, decided to do an amazing deed and raise money to show the soldiers how much their country appreciates them. In just two days Sofie raised over 7000 NIS ($1700), donated by friends and family in Israel as well as other countries such as the US and England. The money was used to buy the soldiers supplies they desperately need like adequate clothing for the cold desert nights, sanitary items, warm food, and lots of sweets and treats to keep their morale and energy high. Sofie drove all the way to the front lines in order to personally deliver all the goods to the soldiers.

Our soldiers are working hard and doing an amazing job keeping us safe. They were thrilled to have received all the goods donated by amazing people around the world.
Thank you everyone for your generous donations and thank you Sofie, you are amazing!!
Love,
V&R

Israel’s Beresheet boutique hotel and spa was recently named one of the world’s sixty best hotels. Of course, we had to check out what all the fuss is about.

Beresheet sits atop a cliff overlooking Ramon crater in the southern Negev desert of Israel. Ramon crater is part of Israel’s biggest national park, the Ramon Nature Reserve.

The aptly named Beresheet (named after the Hebrew word for Genesis) appears to have risen from the sand in its primeval landscape like the beautiful rock formations surrounding it. The architecture was designed by Israeli architecture office Faigin Architects in cooperation with the British ARA Design.

We were deeply impressed by the architectural attempt to blend into the desert landscape and create something inherent to the site rather than something foreign.

The hotel offers top quality facilities and dining, a pool overlooking the crater, and a spa complete with amazing massages and treatments with which to spoil yourself.

What to do in the area:
The vast desert area offers lots of beautiful trails to hike through, whether above and around the Ramon crater or further north into the desert.

You’re sure to run into some mountain goats or the local ibex.

By the northern part of the hotel, right along the crater is a sculpture garden which you can hike through and enjoy breathtaking views of the Ramon crater.
If you crave a bit of fashion and style, the nearest town, Mitzpe Ramon has some very cool (and very cheap) vintage and second hand shops you can browse through to take a break from the hot desert sun.

On our next travel guide we will be covering some beautiful and exciting destinations in South America. Follow us for some more travel, styling, fashion, what to do and what to see, and of course, What We Wear!

Tel Aviv Fashion Week is in full force and while the city is filled with super fashionable people and designer runway shows, the boutiques are celebrating as well!

You know those boutiques that are so beautiful you just have to stroll through them even if you can’t afford to buy anything? Such is Razili, a boutique selling all the biggest names in Israeli fashion and design innovation.

Of course we were thrilled to attend the boutique’s Fashion Night event, as part of Fashion Week.

Razili has a very unique approach to fashion and works hard on promoting young and promising Israeli designers. Their clothes are made from top notch fabrics and innovative sewing and cuts. Even better, if you ask us, are their accessories! One of our favorite jewelry labels is Noritami. If you recall, Rony rocked their wood and gold necklace at Tel Aviv’s Ready to Wear event. Noritami design accessories using a mix of unconventional materials, such as wood, polymer and fabric with all kinds of metals. The designs themselves are very architectural, which we are of course drawn to.

We loved seeing how the girls in the store put together their outfits, each giving the beautiful clothes and accessories their own twist!

The event was joined by a very romantic rainstorm that marked the much awaited official start of fall in Israel!

Rony wore a maxi asymmetrical navy skirt with a cream knit turtleneck, brown leather jacket, camel booties, golden lace necklace, and a Coach bag.

Vera wore forest green skinny jeans with an oversized gray sweater, green men’s cardigan, gray scarf, oversized necklace, satchel, and the Fly Foot booties we got during Fly Foot’s collection launch party.

Rony felt very artistic that night…

What We Wear was in attendance as Maya Negri showcased her new collection for an intimate and exclusive crowd of celebs, fashion people, and internationally renowned bloggers.

The clothes and accessories were gorgeous, the music was awesome and the vibes were fun!

Maya Negri is an Israeli fashion designer whose unique line incorporates design, innovation and top quality all natural fabrics. True to the Israeli minimalist look, the collection featured a lot of monochromatic pieces -black, gray, cream and brown. The shapes and cuts of the clothes, however, make them very feminine and delicate.

This event was part of “Vibe Israel”, a blessed project launched as part of the effort of Nonprofit organization Kinetis. Kinetis is an organization dedicated to promoting the recognition of Israel internationally as a vibrant and inspirational source of creativity. As part of “Vibe Israel”, Kinetis invited five bloggers who are extremely influential in the fashion and design world, to learn, experience and document the creative side of the country. We were honored to take part in this project as we too believe that while it isn’t recognized as a fashion capital, Tel Aviv is progressive, innovative, and inspiring.

During the event we mingled with local fashion people and of course with the fashion bloggers.

One very important tip we got from one of our favorite fashion bloggers, Daniel Dykes, was that success in this kind of media comes from doing your own unique thing and knowing the right people, like lot of other things in life! Hopefully someday the “right people” will take a chance on us

Rony even got herself a goodie: Gray felt cropped vest!

Here’s how we dressed to impress:
Vera wore a flapper style shift dress adorned with stones, knit cardigan, leather satchel, and mustard kitten heels.

Rony wore an asymmetric shift dress, print scarf, men’s hat, vintage heels, woven clutch, and golden cuffs.

Keep it simple and stay fabulous!

Happy Halloween everyone!

Every year costumes get crazier and more creative. This year Vera decided to really go crazy and dress up as a sketch she drew day before!
The inspiration for the sketch was Clockwork Orange meets Tim Burton characters meet Kill Bill, and throw in the mix a bunch of horror movies!
