This week’s pick was actually taken when we were Architecture students in design university, but is still relevant and continues to inspire us today.

It’s so gray outside and the sun is barely showing itself. All this grayness is definitely effecting our moods so there’s nothing better than flashing some color in our outfits!
As students, and to this day, we love wearing colorful tights to brighten up our cold weather outfits!

More ideas on how to wear coloful tights here, here, and here.

Follow us as we report on our favorite fall/winter trends, fashions and must haves!

As the temperatures drop and the weather gets rainier and colder, we love taking advantage of the last bit of warm sunshine to travel and explore. This weekend’s choice destination was Rosh Hanikra, a beautiful geological site on the Mediterranean coast in northern Israel.

ImageIn order to access the geological site, one must take a cable car into the site and on the way enjoy stunning scenic views. The first stop to visit is the old railroad built by the British during the British Mandate in Israel. This railroad was built in attempt to create train access from Israel to Europe that would travel from Tel Aviv to London through Lebanon, Turkey and other countries.

The idea of a railroad that travels from the Middle East into Europe seems like a wonderful dream that in today’s reality seems impossible due to the Middle Eastern conflict.

The next stop are the beautiful grottos: cavernous tunnels formed by sea friction on the soft chalk rocks. We took a stroll inside the grottos and enjoyed the stunning views, some of the world’s most beautiful views in our opinion! The turquoise Mediterranean water was splashing everywhere and sunlight that crept in through the openings made this place appear even more magical.
ImageImageImageImageImageA nice ending to the trip was a long walk in the old city of Acre (see Acre travel guide and recommendations here) and lunch at one of the local seafood restaurants.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and wishing you a great week ahead!

We’re a bit behind on this but it’s finally fall!!! It is only now starting to get colder in Tel Aviv and we couldn’t be more excited about our cold weather wardrobes!

In fall the weather can be a bit fickle. The days can still get warm but the evenings and nights get colder and there’s always a chance of rain. The best bet then, is to wear layers. We personally love the layered look; the more textures, colors and prints you pile on, the more cool and interesting the look. The only thing to beware of is looking like a bear!

We love layering because it allows us to wear our favorite pieces from summer, like adorable summer dresses we’re having a hard time letting go of.

Vera wore a flower print velvet top over an Aztec print dress, striped cardigan, masculine black booties, beaded collar necklace and see through tights.

IMG_06101 IMG_06021

Vera’s velvet top adds a wintery touch to the outfit. She wore the top above and over her belly to either accentuate or conceal her pregnant belly a bit.

IMG_06351

Rony wore a flower print dress with a men’s suit vest, long cardigan, waist cinching belt, knee high socks, velvet rhinestones and gold necklace and a studded tote.

IMG_06431 IMG_06521 IMG_06472 IMG_05152 IMG_05211 IMG_05311 IMG_05381 IMG_05431 IMG_05801 IMG_05821 IMG_05901 IMG_05841

In this layered look, the belt accentuates Rony’s figure and gives the masculine vest a feminine look.
More ideas on why every girl needs a waist cinching belt and how to wear them here.

IMG_06501

We are obsessed with knee high socks at the moment, they are perfect with both flats and heels!

Green, gray, brown, and black and white are the perfect colors for fall. A great way to add a pop of color to any fall look is with bright lipstick. We did so with bright red and bright pink lip colors.

These photos were taken on a particularly windy day and the wind gave quite cool effects to the shoot. Thank you mother nature!

Happy almost-weekend fellow fashionistas!

We chose this week’s picture because it really reminds us of fall. You can almost feel the cold wind blowing through the tree. Where we are fall is just starting to show face, so we’re getting very excited about our fall wardrobes. Next week we’ll be sharing our fall essentials and tips for fabulous fall styling!

This photo was taken at Edith Wolfson park, one of the most beautiful parks in Tel Aviv, where the architecture was designed by artist and architect Dani Karavan. We love this place so much we shot two posts here: Black Swans and Ladies in Trousers.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, enjoy the romantic weather!

Last month we were in Madrid for architecture week, a wonderful series of exhibits and conventions celebrating the city’s architecture and looking towards the future of architecture. Of course we took advantage of our visit to explore this beautiful city! IMG_98941

Architecture

Madrid has a beautiful range and mix of traditional European and contemporary, Hi-tec architecture. One of the most intriguing events of architecture week were tours exploring the city’s most prominent buildings, and seeing the progression of the city’s architecture throughout its history. IMG_4238

Madrid airport: inspiring first steps in Spain.IMG_4219

Gran Via

The city’s most hustling and bustling main street is filled with all the must have shops (Zara, H&M, Pull & Bear, etc) as well as some of the city’s most beautiful traditional architecture.

IMG_11651 The detailing on the buildings is so beautiful that we couldn’t stop taking pictures!

Caixa Forum

Caixa Forum is a museum and cultural center located on Madrid’s beautiful Paseo del Prado boulevard and one of the city’s most interesting contemporary buildings. IMG_13301 IMG_18251

The beautiful geometric structure was built by architects Herzog & de Meuron. It was built on the foundation of an old abandoned electrical station and the architects incorporated the steel aesthetic into the interior design as well. IMG_13541 IMG_13601 IMG_13661 IMG_13671

We loved the Caixa Forum’s museum store and spent hours going through the architecture and fashion books. IMG_13741

Next to the Caxia Forum is a building covered with a vertical garden: a green wall designed by botanist Patrick Blanc.

IMG_18231 IMG_18301 IMG_13311 IMG_13711 To us this really signifies the future of architecture and landscape design, especially as urbanization develops and cities get more and more overpopulated.

Reina Sofia Museum IMG_18451

This museum underwent modern renovation and expansion by architect Jean Nouvel and now has a beautiful rooftop overlooking the city, as well as a wonderful courtyard and sculpture garden.

IMG_18341 IMG_18591 IMG_19041 IMG_19111 IMG_19472 IMG_6190IMG_19551IMG_19651 IMG_19671Besides its design, it was definitely our favorite museum in the city. It houses important pieces by Spanish artists such as Picasso, Dali, and Miro, as well as modern art and photography exhibits. IMG_18531

Hide and seek among the Richard Serra.IMG_18791 IMG_19601

The Royal Palace IMG_99271

Beside the beautiful architecture of the palace and its lavish interiors, we loved the royal gardens.

IMG_14692 IMG_14711 IMG_14501 IMG_14771 IMG_99522 IMG_99401 El Retiro IMG_12411

A beautiful park which sits on the Paseo del Prado, it is a wonderful place to relax, have a picnic, or go for a nice stroll. IMG_12391 IMG_12511 IMG_12641 IMG_12841 IMG_13101 IMG_13201 IMG_13241

A pleasant surprise: a modern art exhibit at the park’s gallery.

Salamanca

IMG_21261 IMG_21311

El Retiro park leads up to Salamanca neighborhood, one of Madrid’s most expensive areas.

IMG_21411 If luxury shopping is what you’re after, this is the place to go. From local labels to international designers, the boutiques in this area are beautiful. IMG_21431 IMG_21451 IMG_21461

Cool display at Camper.IMG_21481 IMG_21711

Chueca

This is a central neighborhood which has become well known for being a gay friendly neighborhood. This area has some of the coolest restaurants, bars, cafes, and boutiques, as well as very cool street style. IMG_15161 IMG_15331 IMG_15371 IMG_15861 IMG_15971 IMG_15911 IMG_15951 IMG_15901

Markets

As in every traditional European city, some of our favorite attractions are the markets. Madrid has an abundance of them, some offering food and drink and some clothes, home goods, etc. IMG_13252

Mercado San Miguel IMG_98971

This hip market and architectural gem has a delicious assortment of food and drink and seems to be the place to be at all times of the day and night. IMG_11152 IMG_11162 IMG_11183 IMG_11221

El Rastro

IMG_16441 This giant market spreads along several streets and reminds us a bit of London’s Camden Market. Here you can find everything from authentic high quality leather goods to graphic T Shirts, to 3 euro shoes (!!!). We clearly had to be dragged away.

IMG_16431 IMG_16422IMG_16502 IMG_16571 IMG_16531 IMG_16361 IMG_16382 This market only opens on Sundays and showing up early is a must, to avoid the huge crowds.

Nightlife

Spaniards sure know how to party! They spend morning to night in bars, restaurants, cafes, drinking all day long! Don’t miss out on the city’s fabulous nightlife. IMG_14321 IMG_16201

One particular must visit are the flamenco shows. We of course had to go for the best and visited Corral de la Moreria, a gorgeous traditional venue which also serves dinner and drinks and features the most prominent dancers in the country.IMG_17351 IMG_17371 IMG_17251 IMG_17471

The smartest thing to do when traveling is to check for any special events or attractions that take place during the visit. We were lucky enough to attend a special Hermes exhibit featuring the fashion house’s luxurious leather goods.

IMG_21111 IMG_20201 IMG_20272 IMG_20291 IMG_20381IMG_20721IMG_20961 IMG_21021 IMG_21042 The only downside is the insatiable craving we now have for the Birkins and the Kellys!

What to wear

This time of the year the city is getting colder and starting to get more rain. The most wise thing to do is wear layers that you can peel off and pile back on towards the evening and night.

Hello fellow fashion lovers!
In honor of the next Tel Aviv Fashion Week we decided to feature our favorite designers, ones that have completely unique designs and who seem to exist in their own unique universe in the fashion world. The first designer was Liat Ginzburg and this time it is Adi Ashur.

IMG_95832

The designer only graduated with a degree in fashion design two years ago and already has impressive range and experience under her belt. We’ve worked with Adi in the past (see post here), every time we see a new collection of her design we are awe-inspired. It’s very rare to see such a young designer with the level of talent, creativity, and craftsmanship that she has.

Adi’s inspiration comes from the circus: everything is about the “show”. The outfit must create a lasting impression that is part of the performance and the drama. There’s no doubt that Adi’s designs leave a lasting impression.

IMG_95092 IMG_95123

IMG_95142 IMG_95812

Black and white are the perfect colors for any occasion and every season: from office to evening to casual wear. We love that while Adi’s collection was based on these basic, accessible colors, she made a couture extravaganza out of them.

The first dress Vera wore was actually designed to be a bridal gown, in Adi’s very modern and unique take on what bridal gowns should be. It was hand woven from silk threads and then the designer unraveled the threads in the upper body to create a cut similar to that of a corset.

IMG_95952 IMG_95941 IMG_95972 IMG_96002 IMG_96032
Vera accessorized with a headband and collar necklaces in silver and pearls.

IMG_96341 IMG_96372 IMG_96391 IMG_96413 IMG_95313

Rony wore a backless knit top with a high waisted layered skirt with jewel and lace overlay.

Rony accessorized with a bejeweled turban, chain necklace and studded clutch.

For Rony’s second outfit she wore a form fitting dress with a bow tied tulle cape.
