This week’s pick is a photo we took while modeling for designer Adi Ashur in the post Belles of the Ball in Tel Aviv’s Florentine neighborhood. Many of the walls in this neighborhood are covered with paintings that take graffiti to a whole new level of street art. We found this wall painting particularly moving and clever, with the Braille writing and the figure’s deep expression.

Florentine neighborhood is home to many locksmith, wood and artist workshops so we find it so beautiful that the very buildings serve as canvas for street artists to express themselves!

August is coming to an end this week and soon the weather will start to cool down and fall will arrive. Where we are it’s too hot to even start thinking about a fall wardrobe so we like to take advantage of this time before the seasons change and wear some of our favorite summer trends and staple items.

1. Tropical prints: These colorful prints are summery and fun and will always remind us of our favorite tropical get away. They can be worn during colder months with tights and a darker palette.

2. Sea-inspired fashion: We could live at the beach and love fashions that reminds us of the sea. More ideas on how to wear sea-inspired and nautical fashion here.

3. Gladiator sandals: The gladiators in their many versions have ruled the sandals scene in the past several summer seasons. Both practical and chic for the hot and humid summer months, our prediction is that the gladiators are not going anywhere anytime soon!

4. Cropped tops: While this is a trend that isn’t for everyone and isn’t so easily wearable, we absolutely love it for day and night. The crop top can go retro and romantic with a high-waisted midi skirt or sleek chic with wide legged trousers. Our little bit of advice is: don’t show your belly button and don’t wear the crop top with anything tight on bottom; no one wants to look like a 90’s teeny bopper!

5. Oversized, colorful jewelry: The fashion world has been taken over by lavish statement making jewelry. Our favorite designer is Liat Ginzburg; she makes unique one of a kind creations that can go with anything from jeans and a T-shirt to cocktail dresses.

6. Fancy slipper flats: The pointy slipper flats are so elegant and sexy that we would wear them for evening as well!

Rony wore a backless cropped top with tropical print high waisted shorts, Liat Ginzburg necklace, yellow clutch, and pointy-toed slipper flats.

As much as we love the hustle and bustle of the city, there’s no better surprise than finding a gorgeous garden with a fish pond to get away to! This little urban jungle not far from our offices  allows us to get away for a bit and take a break from our busy schedules.

We may not be professional photographers but we are pretty proud of our photography skills! Here we will share with you some of our favorite photos from our instagram page, many of which were taken on the locations of our fashion photoshoots!

Spatial Origami

Tel Aviv Museum of Art

Our pick of the week is a photo we took while visiting Tel Aviv’s Museum of Art’s new addition which was designed by American architect Preston Scott Cohen. Pictured is the intriguing interior space and play on light the architect created. We love how the concrete structure appears to be paper origami!

This museum was the location of our photoshoot for the post Shades of Gray.

Hey friends,

We have wonderful news to share with you, Vera is almost five months pregnant and we couldn’t be more excited! Her baby bump keeps growing and is starting to show on our latest posts so we decided to share the exciting news!

Image

We’re certain whatever is growing in Vera’s belly will undoubtedly be a majorly fashionable creature!

So until the “big day” we will continue posting as usual and will report on the latest trends and styles. Our future posts, however, will also explain how these trends can be worn when expecting!

During pregnancy the female body changes a lot and other than gaining weight, the chest area and the stomach grow increasingly every day. Changes in the wardrobe are required, but we propose making these changes without comprising style.

Vera is in the middle of her second trimester, which is considered the fun part of pregnancy; it is the part when the woman can enjoy her little bump and sexy curves without any inconveniences. Cute little dresses that are fitted in bellow the belly area are a total must have! Slightly fitted dresses will do the job as well. Basically the rules remain the same during pregnancy:  whenever wearing a tight item mix it with something wide and whenever revealing some skin be sure to keep the rest covered so as not to reveal too much.

Here are some celebs who make pregnancy look great:

Miranda Kerr

A huge pregnancy no-no as far as we’re concerned are huge tent-like dresses! Despite what many women think, these dresses are very unflattering and end up making you look really big. These kind of dresses work only if they are short and reveal a bit of leg. Another little tip we’ve discovered, if you are looking to conceal the belly before officially breaking the news to everyone: colorful prints are not only fabulous but do a great job obscuring the belly!

Here are some celebs whose example you dont want to follow:

Kim Kardashian

Many more tips on how to dress fabulously when expecting coming soon!

**Styling Tip** Just because you’re stuck in an office all day doesn’t mean your outfit should be boring. Another way of spicing things up is with your nail polish! Rony chose attention-grabbing bright blue!

IMG_86082 IMG_86251 IMG_86271 IMG_86281 IMG_86401

Since these trousers are loose and oversized, we recommend wearing something more form fitting on top, for a slim look.

Startup Nation
Israel is known worldwide for its success in high-tech development and business. The country is ranked 3rd in the region and 38th worldwide on the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index, as well as in the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report. It has the second-largest number of startup companies in the world (after the United States) and the largest number of NASDAQ-listed companies outside North America. That’s quite impressive for a country with a population of 8 million!

The Israeli economy was ranked as the world’s most durable economy in the face of crises, and was also ranked first in the rate of research and development center investments. Israel is well known for its innovation and development of cutting-edge technologies. For example, it is a leading country in the development of solar energy and water conservation. Some Israeli startups invented products that billions worldwide can’t live without. Case in point: Waze, the GPS application that has become a household name.

What this means for local architects like us is that more and more office towers are getting built to house all those creative minds. Innovation is apparent in the architecture as well: modern high-technology designed, ecological buildings are being built all over the city.
Photos taken at Millenium Building Plaza, Tel Aviv.
