Happy Thursday fellow fashionistas, it’s almost the weekend!
Being the girly girls we are, we love to offset our girly outfits with masculine pieces! Some of our favorites, especially in colder months, are blazers. What’s better in the midst of winter grayness than jackets that are colorful and attention-grabbing?!

Colorful blazers
Bright colored jackets are a bit more casual, which allows you to dress down a very dressy outfit and make it more day to day ready.

Here are some of our favorite colorful blazers:

Vera wore a bright green corduroy blazer with a cream dotted sheer blouse, denim button down skirt, gray tights, brogues, layers of silver jewelry and an oversized frog ring.

Vera’s blazer has a very Victorian feel, which nicely offsets her outfit’s retro and modern accents.

Rony wore a blue cropped blazer with a bright pink patterned cardigan, studded A-lined mini dress, print blue tights, leopard print platforms and lots of big rings.

Another way of wearing Rony’s outfit is by adding a waist cinching belt – making the look less loose and more put together.

Rony’s jacket is very light so layering allows her to wear it in all seasons.

Hello loves!
This weekend marked the Jewish holiday of Purim, a holiday that celebrates the Jews’ deliverance from massacre and destruction in the ancient Persian Empire. In order to commemorate their salvation, Jews around the world celebrate in a day of feasting and rejoicing which includes dressing up in costumes and public celebrations.

We absolutely love costumes and dressing up so needless to say this is our favorite holiday!
Rony dressed up as a red-hot devil, wearing a red tutu, red corset, bright red wig and red horns.

Devil may care

Besides hundreds of parties everywhere you look, the biggest party of all took place in the streets!

As in every year during Purim, the city of Tel Aviv organized a huge street party which took place on a main road and included performances by the hottest DJ’s around, parades, headphone parties and most importantly, dancing in the street!

What We Wear was honored to attend the opening of international artist Grimanesa Amoros’ exhibit at Tel Aviv’s Litvak gallery.

The exhibit, titled Light Between the Islands, consists of installations of “islands” of bubble forms of various sizes with varying drawings imprinted on them.

The bubbles are arranged in modular units and layers scattered around the space with changing light scenes achieved by LED lighting that deeply change the feeling of each island of bubbles – from solid forms that seem to permanently occupy the space to floating ethereal bubbles. The reflective concrete floor of the gallery intensified the visual effects.

Visitors of the exhibit took an active part in it, walking around the islands and creating their own shadows in the space and changing their own appearance as the lighting changed.

We absolutely loved Amoros’ exquisite work and the play on lights and shadows and prints on different forms. The rhythmic organization of the forms in the space truly made us feel as if we were walking on dark water between islands of magical light.

The exhibit is currently on display at Litvak Gallery, a gallery with special focus on glass art. Litvak gallery has featured international glass artists such as Dale Chihuly, Howard Ben Tre and Vaclav Cigler, as well as other world renowned artists.

An additional exhibit on display at the gallery was Czechoslovakian artist Vaclav Cigler’s Spheres, part of his exhibit Light and Space. Cigler’s exhibit features geometric forms made from cut solid optical glass of various transparency and translucency.

What we always find interesting in these exhibits is how each visitor has their own take and perspective on the art. As fashion bloggers who have been disciplined in architecture, we saw the forms as beautiful jewels nesting on beautiful architectural structures.

Fashion imitates Art

Present at the opening were international artists such as Amoros herself and Israeli London-based designer/architect Ron Arad, whose works we have reported on in past posts.

To achieve classy looks we both chose modern LBDs for this opening. Here’s what we wore:
Vera wore a strapless bow tied taffeta dress with a leather jacket, black high heeled mary-janes, and print tights. Vera accessorized with gorgeous jewelry by one of our favorite local jewelry designers, Ariversa.

Rony wore a studded collar dress with a black cardigan, black tights and studded slipper flats. Rony accessorized with an oversized studded cream clutch and gold cuffs.

Happy anniversary to our blog! What We Wear is a year old, and what a year it has been!!

What started from an idea of posting random pictures of our daily outfits here and there became an amazing worldwide fashion community! It all happened thanks to you, our amazing followers and readers! All the support gave us the motivation to build up a platform of fashion for “real people”, which expanded with forays into art, design, travel and culture all through our personal point of view.

What We Wore

How it all started!

We may attempt to pose like we’re gracing the pages of Vogue, but we never take ourselves too seriously. For this very special Blogaversary post we decided to share with you the “behind the scenes”, some of the funniest and most awkward moments from some of our posts over the past year:

Flower Children

We have so much fun we tend to forget ourselves; the camera can keep rolling and rolling.. More from this post here.

Blue Jeans

We try to reinvent posing. Vera: Horse face is the new duck face! More from Blue Jeans here.

Balloons do wonders for your hair!Makeup Your Mind

We too have to brave the elements: sun in our eyes and wind in our face in Makeup your Mind

Fashion Playground

We don’t always look graceful in high heels. Rony’s high heeled platforms sinking in the sand in our post Fashion Playground.

Hitchcock Heroines

We get really silly. Vera gets a bit too into the horror movie theme in Hitchcock Heroines

Hot Pants!

We pay for buying cheap! Vera in Hot Pants

Who runs the World? Girls!

We get really possessive. “That’s my necklace! No, mine!” 

Midriff Barers

We can somehow magically switch haircolor. Vera being the blonde: “Wait, what..??”

Color Blocking

We are afraid of big bad monsters. Rony: “OMG is that a bee?!”

Midriff Barers

We’re great at multitasking, even while shooting our post Midriff Barers. Uber-fashionable pool cleaner anyone?

The Skirt Chronicles

We get really really tired. Rony takes a nap while shooting The Skirt Chronicles ZzzzZZZzzZzzzz.

But in all seriousness, our blog has given us an “excuse” to visit and document some of the most wonderful sites Tel Aviv has to offer.

And at the end of the day we always have fun because we are, afterall, best friends!

Casual Glam

Having a silly moment while shooting our post Casual Glam

This is the perfect opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us over the past year: our friends and families, those who allowed us to style them, those who allowed us to photograph them, the photographers and collaborators, the city of Tel Aviv and Israel in general for being the perfect backdrop, and most of all our amazing readers!

So what’s coming up next you ask? A lot of fashion of course, more cooperative work with the most amazing local designers, soon to come our own fashion column in a popular British website, full coverage of the local fashion events, more Street Style stars, personal styling tips and much more!

Getting Inspired

With hopes of delivering amazing content in the future,
