You know that time of the week when you can almost smell the weekend approaching and all the stress of work and errands and all the things on your mind seem to just fade away? We love that time!

The weekend is finally upon us! We like to use our weekend time to relax and rest from our crazy week, and get our bodies and minds ready for another one.

This picture, taken during a spontaneous stroll through the beautifully rural Givat Ada in northern Israel, is the image of relaxation and peace of mind.

Stay tuned for a post on our favorite weekend wear, coming up next!
Enjoy your weekend everyone! We’d love to hear about your weekend plans, share them on our facebook page!

Now that Vera is a mommy (what a MILF), we’ve been getting very nostalgic about our childhoods and how our mothers used to be, and how they used to dress. We love digging up old photos of our mothers and seeing how glamorous and stylish they were, and still are today.

Since we were born in the eighties, we decided to do a post inspired by eighties fashion, and how it can be relevant today.

Rony wore a vintage velvet and leather top with pleather leggings, peep toe wedges, a turban, and piled on the jewelry.

IMG_16421 IMG_16481 IMG_16501 IMG_16811 IMG_16831 IMG_16841 IMG_16861

Rony’s look is very bold and fierce so to keep it from looking too over the top she added some oriental inspired touches, like the turban and the hand-made coral bracelet she got in Thailand.

IMG_16921 IMG_16941 IMG_16951

Good styling is all about proportions. The big broad shoulders and masculine cut of Rony’s top goes best with a skinny proportion on the bottom. Adding a waist cinching belt gives the top a feminine, sexy touch.

Vera wore a colorful print sweater, patterned hip hugging skirt, patterned tights, leather moccasins, and oversized earrings.

IMG_16712IMG_16741 IMG_16751 IMG_16761IMG_16791

Next time, instead of wearing plain black tights mix it up with patterned ones to make the outfit more bold, interesting, and fun.

IMG_17091 IMG_17061 IMG_17081 IMG_17121

In case you hadn’t noticed, Vera’s post baby makeover included a fabulous new haircut, which actually suited our 80’s theme perfectly!

IMG_17031

Our outfits included items that we so happily inherited from our mothers’ wardrobes: Vera’s statement earrings and Rony’s bold top.

This week it rained in Israel. This may seem like a ridiculous statement to those of you who have been enjoying snow storms and a real winter. The weather has truly been all over the place this year, one day will be warm and spring-like and the next very cold and then rainy.

One thing is for sure though, we don’t intend on letting the weather stop us and neither should you!

This photo was taken on a particularly romantic rainy winter evening. We loved the weather so much that we had to step out into the rain and sip some champagne. More from this photoshoot here.

We hope you all enjoy what’s left of your winter!

Love is in the air, everywhere I look around. Love is in the air, every sight and every sound.

We know it’s so cliché to wear red on Valentine’s Day, but it is the holiday of everything red: hearts, blushing, etc.

To give Red a bit of a twist of our own we decided to dress it up with denim, leather, lots of spikes, and a bit of a funky punky flair. Because you know, sometimes love hurts but it’s definitely worth all that trouble.

IMG_15081 IMG_15051

For a cool Valentine’s date at a concert, a stroll through the park or dinner and a movie, Vera wore:

IMG_15521
Rolling Stones T-Shirt over a layered polka dot dress, studded jean jacket, rhinestones collar necklace and bow-adorned pumps.

IMG_15571 IMG_15591 IMG_15631 IMG_15871
Vera’s outfit says: I’m cool enough to hang with your buddies and still look super chic.

IMG_15021 IMG_14991 IMG_14931 IMG_14971 IMG_15351 IMG_15441 IMG_15481

For a sexy Valentine’s date at a cool wine bar or a night of dancing, Rony wore:

IMG_15661

Patterned pink crop top, high waisted vintage puffy skirt with studded belt, studded leather jacket, patterned tights, leather and gold necklace and studded mary janes.

IMG_15712

IMG_15741 IMG_15792 IMG_15821

Rony’s outfit says: I’m confident and fun and not afraid to show it.

IMG_15132 IMG_14771 IMG_15141

***Styling tip*** Always leave room for a bit of spontaneity on the date and wear shoes that you can walk in for more than a few feet!

IMG_14721 IMG_14731

We like to celebrate love every day of the year; we don’t need a special occasion to show the ones we love how much they mean to us. Spread the love you fabulous people!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

A revised version of bingo helps you plan your outfits!

Transitioning to a new season is always tough, especially for people who live and breathe fashion. New seasons mean new trends to keep up with, new items of clothing to invest in, and new outfits to plan; It can get pretty overwhelming. Luckily, BooHoo.com has come up with a little game of Wardrobe Bingo to help with all that hard work.

It might seem like bingo has no place in the fashion world, being the drab, boring game that senior citizens play in stuffy bingo halls, but the game seems to have sprouted a sense of fashion in recent years. Not only have the most fashionable people of the world started to take up the game (case in point Kate Moss and Catherine Zeta-Jones, unashamed lovers of bingo), but the game itself has started blooming into a colorful experience.

Not your average game of bingo at RebelBingo.com

No longer confined to calling out numbers in boxes, bingo has also seen powerups in the form of Greek, Roman and Egyptian gods in Bingogodz, and wild bingo competitions in Rebel Bingo. BooHoo.com has taken bingo further into the fashion world by creating a simple game that allows the stylish to make full use of their bursting wardrobes.

Screenshot 2014-02-09 14

The principles of Wardrobe Bingo are simple: gather five items that fall under the following categories: tops, bottoms, shoes, and accessories, and label each item with a number from 1-5. Participants then pick a random number for each category, put on all the corresponding clothing items, and take a photo of the final outfit.

As spring approaches, now is the perfect time to start looking for some of the key pieces that will make up your wardrobe. A quick edit through BooHoo.com’s Wardrobe Bingo can help you plan what items of clothing to invest in next, especially when working on a budget. To play, grab a bingo card template off the internet (or create one yourself — just a 5×5 grid on a piece of cardboard), and mark each row as Tops, Bottoms, Shoes and Accessories, and each column with a number from 1-5. In each box, take down a key Spring 2014 trend that corresponds to the clothing group.

Here are some of our favorite trends to rock this season, courtesy of Elle.com:

For tops, off the shoulder shirts and dresses are all the rage this coming season.

Color: Orange is the new black, and pinks are perfect for spring.

Orange dress, shoes, and makeup at DKNY.

elle-karen-walker-spring-2014-rtw-11-de-Se6lk0-xln

Pink trousers for a full day of chic at Karen Walker.

Flowers always bloom in spring.

elle-rebecca-taylor-spring-2014-rtw-40-de-xln

Romantic florals at Rebecca Taylor. More ideas on how to wear florals here and here.

We love fierce and lavish gem embellishments.

elle-00-jewels-opener-xln

Beautiful bejeweled Kenzo top.

For bottoms:

Crisp wide white trousers were seen on all the hottest runways.

elle-daks-spring-2014-rtw-012-de-xln

Geomteric and minimalist cuts and prints rule this season.

elle-edun-spring-2014-rtw-01-de-xln

Gorgeous prints and cuts at Edun.

Metallics make a strong statement.

elle-tory-burch-spring-2014-rtw-023-de-xln

Metallic from head to toe at Tory Burch.

Board shorts are effortless and chic.

For shoes:

Curved heels are the newest rage in shoe trends.

elle-01-curved-heels-walter-steiger-floral-pump-v-xln

Walter Steiger printed curved heel pumps.

Pumps and high heels worn with socks. This trend is fun and bold, don’t be afraid to mix colors!

elle-perfect-pairs-socks-opener-h-xln
Mules (that’s right, the mules are making a serious comeback this spring), and for comfort look to skater shoes, as seen on uber fashionista Jourdan Dunn.

elle-skate-shoes-opener-joan-smalls-v-xln

For accessories, our favorites of the spring collections were the big, bold, colorful, and DIY-inspired pieces.

elle-nyfw-spring-2013-trends-orange-is-the-new-black-prabal-gurung-lip-1-xln-xln

Funky sunglasses at Prabal Gurung.

Now before you go out on a shopping spree, roll the dice for each clothing group, and take note of the corresponding trend. For example, rolling a 3 for bottoms means you’re going out on a quest to find the perfect board shorts, and a 5 for accessories will send you on a lookout for bright gems. When you roll a 6, pick out your trend of choice from the list.
