Happy Monday everyone!

We like to lead a healthy lifestyle, we eat healthy and take care of our figures by exercising regularly. We try not to compromise our style, and stay fashionable even while sweating at the gym. If we make an effort to infuse fashion into our sportswear why not do the opposite as well: infuse comfort into our fashion wear! We did so by turning some of our favorite sportswear items into chic wardrobe staples that can be worn just about anywhere!

Sportswear and ready to wear have been mixing a lot recently, from designer collaborations at the big athletic clothes brands (case in point Stella McCartney for Adidas), to sneakers that sport the trendiest prints and colors. What’s not to love about a trend that doesn’t only look good but is also so easily wearable, flattering and comfortable!

Rony wore vintage pink running shorts with a striped button down blouse, gray oversized jacket and beige and pink flats.

Rony’s super short shorts look great with oversized items on top, so as not to reveal too much skin.

We’ve posted about our love for vintage clothes many times and we often wonder what it is about vintage that lures us in so much. We think it must be the fantasy and the romantic aura of vintage pieces, that makes us feel like we’re playing a part in an old Hollywood movie.

A similar effect we’ve grown obsessed with lately are ethnic prints. April is the month of international concepts of style! How do we know? Pick up any of the latest issues of fashion magazines and immerse yourself in a sea of beautiful prints and cuts with traditional wear vibes.

Clothes can often make you feel like you’re living in a fantasy of your own making; maybe that’s why we love them so much! The trick is not letting the “role” turn into a full on costume. Ethnic prints should therefore be worn intelligently, and why not make the outfit more interesting by throwing in inspirations from around the world?!

Vera wore an authentic Chinese gold and green blazer with a white buttoned down shirt, dark skinny jeans, golden toe flats, a gold and rope necklace and a frog ring.

IMG_69311 IMG_69261 IMG_69291 IMG_69431 IMG_69451 IMG_69511

Vera’s gorgeous blazer with its bold colors and intricate detailing is so attention grabbing that the rest of the outfit can be kept more minimalistic.

A white shirt and dark jeans make this outfit office ready.

Rony wore an Eastern European-inspired patterned dress, South American-inspired wool poncho cardigan, 70’s inspired heels, studded and patterned cuffs and a vintage gold necklace.

IMG_69232 IMG_69242 IMG_69391 IMG_69381 IMG_69371

Mixing different prints both in Rony’s accessories and clothes made her outfit unique and interesting.

Wearing Rony’s dress with a knit pullover rather than a jacket or blazer dresses it down and makes it more day to day ready.

Even a plain white T Shirt can go amazingly well with that poncho that you got from Peru and never dared to wear!

Today marks Israel’s 65th Independence Day! For such a small and young country, Israel is home to a beautiful variety of landscapes and a beautiful diversity of people all united by their patriotism and love for life. Independence Day is celebrated with huge parties, barbeques and general joy and happiness.

Everyone dresses in the colors of the Israeli flag to celebrate. In honor of this beautiful country we love so much, and in honor of its flag, we too chose outfits in the colors of blue and white.

IMG_69982 IMG_70023 IMG_70011

Vera wore a vintage sleeveless blue button down blouse with loose white jeans, red ballerina flats and a red long cardigan.

Rony wore a white zip front blouse, blue high waisted skirt, gray tights, silver gold and rope necklace, and gray patent stilettos.

This photoshoot took place at a major center for Israeli arts and film: Cinematec Tel Aviv. The Cinematec features films by the most prominent Israeli filmmakers as well as by the most anonymous, independent ones. We love the architecture and the use of glass and graphic design to create a truly beautiful space.

Hello loves!

We absolutely love vintage. As far as we’re concerned, the more antique the better! We especially love romantic lace that makes you feel like a starlet from a different era. Lace has always been such an important part of fashion – from outerwear to knickers it is the ultimate symbol of femininity and grace. Worn with a certain jacket or shoe, lace can become a bit gothic or more soft and romantic.

While vintage and retro are beautiful, overdoing the style can get a bit.. well, granny-ish. To make our vintage pieces more current we spiked our outfits with a bit of punkish modern attitude. Here are the results:

Modern vintage outfits Modern vintage outfitsRony wore a Chanel-esque vintage crochet pullover and a black lace chiffon blouse.

Rony modernized the look with a black studded mini skirt, greenish gray tights, studded cuffs and Victorian peep-toe booties.

Vera wore a very babydoll-like vintage lace overlay mini dress.

Vera made the outfit modern punk with her black leggings, layered chain necklaces and tough-as-nails booties.

What better location to photograph these outfits than at one of Tel Aviv’s most beautiful old buildings, the Beit Heseg building, located on one of Tel Aviv’s most beautiful streets, Rothschild Boulevard.

IMG_68991 IMG_69011 IMG_69052 IMG_68891 IMG_68941

This building was originally planned and built in 1924 by prominent Israeli architect Yehuda Megidovitch, is under preservation and has undergone restoration by important Tel Aviv architects such as Yaski architects. We just love the way this eclectic building blends with its modern surroundings!

Happy spring loves!
Our favorite time of the year is here – Warm enough to parade around in your lightest, most colorful dresses, yet cool enough in the evening to still be able to flaunt your favorite blazers, cardigans, and tights!

Here are some of our favorite ice-cream colored outfits to welcome spring with.

Colorful spring outfits

Cherries and bubblegum – Vera wore a patterned pink minidress with a bright pink oversized jacket, burgundy tights, waist cinching belt, pearl and glass necklace, vintage Adidas quilted pink bag and brown brogues.

IMG_67121 IMG_67451 IMG_67491 IMG_67521 IMG_67551 IMG_67701 IMG_67321 IMG_67251 IMG_67241

Vera’s tip for super short dresses is to wear short shorts or Sophies underneath so that everyone will enjoy your long legs and not your knickers!

IMG_67711 IMG_67731 IMG_67752 IMG_67741

Peach and pistachio – Rony wore a turquoise A-shaped dress with a turquoise cardigan, asymmetrical cut jacket, peach tights, cutout high heeled oxfords, pink belt and gold V-necklace.

IMG_67013 IMG_67042 IMG_67051 IMG_67402 IMG_67431 IMG_67421 IMG_67392 IMG_67072 IMG_67091

An A-lined dress allows you show off all your best parts: If it’s your legs you want to emphasize, this cut will nicely frame and blur your upper body. If it’s your waist and chest you want to draw attention to, adding a thin belt will do the trick.

IMG_67633 IMG_67641 IMG_67651 IMG_67761

We love how everywhere you turn in Tel Aviv there’s a lovely surprise just around the corner! We found this beautifully painted wall just between a main street and a major construction site and just loved how well it went with our outfits!
