It’s so inspiring to see an artist’s work process and to see them in their element.
We were invited to Hagar Satat’s studio to experience some of her work process as she launches her new collection. As two girls who live and breathe fashion sometimes we feel that we’ve seen all. Satat’s work, however, surprised and excited us!

Hagar Satat is a celebrated Israeli jewelry and accessories designer. She graduated from the prestigious Bezalel Academy of Art and Design and soon after opened her first design studio and launched her first collection. She has her own stores in Tel Aviv and sells her designs at retailers across the country, as well as in North America and Europe.

While Hagar’s education focused mostly on jewelry, she also explored different areas of fashion and textile. These different disciplines are displayed nicely in Hagar’s creations, her accessories are focused on creating the perfect dialogue between the materials she uses – silver and gold, leather, plastic, and fabrics.

We were lucky enough to have been treated to a private tour of the studio, while Satat herself explained her design process in each collection. We then snooped around every shelf and nook of the studio, trying to take in as much design as possible!

We are big fans of Hagar’s designs and were delighted to get a glimpse into the behind the scenes of the designer’s work. Satat’s jewels have the capability not only to upgrade an outfit, but even to make the outfit and become the main attraction rather than the background piece.

Our favorite pieces:
We are absolutely in love with Hagar’s gold, PVC and leather cuffs!

They slip on the wrist, no need for annoying clasps that scratch your skin. they come in gorgeous colors, perfect for summer. They make a statement all on their own but also look amazing piled up! These are definitely going on our birthday wish list!

Satat recently launched a new collection, Perlin, offering jewelry that can be suited for younger clients and is more accessible and day-to-day ready.

The best part of the event was that Hagar treated us to our own leather and gold bracelets! We got to pick the color of the leather braid, both of us picked a gorgeous green color, and are now proud owners of a limited edition Hagar Satat bracelet!

Have we mentioned how much we love being fashion bloggers?!

Hagar looked lovely in an oversized print tunic, minimalistic sandals, and her own leather and gold drop necklace.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Last night we went to Asaf Avidan’s concert in Caesaria’s amphitheater and are still enchanted by Avidan’s spell!

IMG_5558

Asaf Avidan is an internationally renowned Israeli musician and multitalent. He sings, writes songs, plays the guitar, electric guitar and harmonica and casts a spell on his bewildered audience. We’ve always been big fans of his music but nothing could’ve prepared us for such an incredible, nearly three hour live show!

IMG_5549 IMG_5550 IMG_5553

The concert took place in Caesaria, home to one of the most beautiful archeological sites in the world, dating back to the Roman Empire. The performance was held in a Roman amphitheater, adding to the dramatic effects and powerful acoustics.

One of our favorite songs from Asaf Avidan’s latest album (Different Pulses), Love it or Leave it.

Visit Asaf’s website here for more info and tour dates. We highly recommend listening to his music and going to his concerts!

You know those days when you’re fed up with all the clothes you own and feel like wearing something new and refreshing? Both of us get in that kind of a mood every once in a while and instead of buying something new each time, our solution is to mix items in a new, unexpected way!

Our favorite combinations are made by putting our party dresses to good use and making them more day-to-day ready while giving them an extra kick of cool . What’s better than putting together your favorite T-Shirts with your hottest dresses and piling on accessories?!

Rony wore a pink dress with a men’s T-Shirt she got in Peru. Clothes we buy while traveling around the world are always our favorite part of the outfit – they bring back wonderful memories from our travels!

Matching sets and suits have always been elegant and classy but have lately taken on a new role and became more interesting and unexpected. The modern woman’s suit is one that should be suited to the many activities of her day. A perfect set could be made up of matching patterns or prints, colors, or cuts.

Vera wore a vintage pink silk and lace set composed of a button down blouse and maxi skirt.Vera matched her set with a skinny belt, and cut out kitten heels.

Rony’s outfit is perfect for a full day of chic and can go from day to night.

Welcome to suburbia. Although we are city girls at heart there’s something nice about waking up to a white picket fence and lots of green.
