In the fickle world of fashion, where trends are constantly changing, we are being told to “keep up” and wear the latest whims of the fashion forecasters and designers. We personally pick and choose which trends we embrace and which ones we ignore. Every once in a while there comes a trend that is so “us” that we don’t want it to ever go out of style! The midi skirt is one of those trends. This mid-length (hence midi) skirt cut is feminine and classy, reminiscent of our favorite Old Hollywood starlets, and is also extremely flattering on almost all shapes and sizes!

Here’s how we styled our midis:

Vera wore a vintage lace overlay pink midi skirt with a striped top, asymmetrical cut blazer, kitten heels, gold necklace and a vintage tote.

Vera offset the retro feminine vibe of the skirt with the ultra modern and cool blazer.

IMG_22731 IMG_22801 IMG_22821 IMG_22861 IMG_22881The vintage tote perfectly complimented Vera’s feminine outfit.

Rony wore an asymmetrical pleated midi skirt with a keyhole blouse, stone studded peep toe heels, head band, and piled on the colorful jewelry.

The great thing about wearing a predominantly white outfit is that it makes a great blank canvas for piles of fabulous accessories.

These outfits have a “city girls Blair and Serena go to the Hamptons” look. That’s Gossip Girl, for those of you who aren’t as obsessed with the show’s styling as we are! The skirts are perfect for the office but also perfect for leisure.

The most fun thing about these skirts? they’ll make you feel like breaking out into dance in the middle of the street! So go ahead, do a little twirl!

This weekend marked Tel Aviv’s annual T-Market event, a fashion event that celebrates local young talents in design. Although the central idea behind this event started as a T-shirt market, it has expanded beyond and now features clothes, accessories, shoes, bags and even art, as well as cool live music and cheap booze.

The whole layout of the event had a very market place feel, which we loved. It made the atmosphere cool and laid back and allowed the designers to get really creative with their displays. Not to mention that the designs on display were sold at (almost) market prices. The sales were insane and we just couldn’t resist. The accessible prices and fun young atmosphere made this a kind of fashion event for the masses.

Here are some of our favorite designs:
Shani Jacobi‘s interesting geometric jewelry incorporates leather, gold and Swarovski crystals for a look that is sure to make a statement.

IMG_23271 IMG_23281Rony picked out Jacobi’s minimalistic gold rings.

T-Market sold amazing clutches in just about every color, size and texture.

IMG_23301 IMG_23311 Rony picked out an oversized wicker clutch.

Punchaos is a jewelry and accessories label with girly and retro designs. It is clear that designers Jessica and Yuval love to experiment with material and color and the results are beautiful.

IMG_23171 IMG_23161 IMG_23191We love seeing how designer Odelia gets better and better each time we see her designs. Her beautiful nature-inspired display caught our attention and we loved the designer’s new rings collection.

IMG_23481 IMG_23491 IMG_23511 IMG_23551 IMG_23521You may remember Odelia’s chic clutches from last year’s event. Rony scored Odelia’s delicate and beautiful gold heart bracelet.

IMG_23731

Sackpack had a very chic adult version of that sack pack we used to have as kids, in various materials, textures and colors.

IMG_23611 IMG_23631

One of the coolest displays by far were by Dima Gorbachev, who had his super cool T-Shirts taped to the walls.

IMG_23591

Natalie Motlis, the designer behind jewelry label Lilla My, is one that never fails to make us feel a serious sugar rush because her designs are so sweet and creative.

IMG_23641You may remember the label from this post and this post. From the adorable creatures adorning her jewelry (bulldogs, kitties, fish, rocking horses and many more) to the unique pieces they are made of, to the gorgeous display, Lilla My is always a treat!

IMG_23651 IMG_23671 IMG_23691

Rony wore a houndstooth print crop top with high waisted long shorts, peep toe bow pumps, blue and orange clutch, colorful necklace from Madrid and hair tie.

We love the holidays because to us they always mean big celebrations, big holiday dinners and lots of quality time with our families. Another great thing about the holidays is that they’re an awesome excuse to dress up and feel ladylike in our favorite dresses.

Vera wore a lace overlay mint cocktail dress with bow tied kitten heels and silver jewelry.

IMG_7197Rony wore a layered dark gray halter dress with metallic heels and an oversized gold necklace.

We’ve been nominated for blogging awards before and never really did anything to participate (don’t hate us!), but this time we were nominated by a blogger we particularly love, the adorable and fabulous Vivian of atouchofvivian, and we just couldn’t resist.

100_33262

Here are Vivian’s questions for us:
When and why did you start blogging?

We started blogging in february 2012, in our senior year of university, after having shared design and fashion ideas with each other for so many years.
We both had so many ideas we wanted to express and share with the world and decided to do that together.

What do you love most about blogging?

We love getting fashion inspiration from interesting people around the world and the amazing feedback we get from our awesome readers! There’s nothing better after all the hard work we put into making our blog interesting.

What’s the story behind the name of your blog?

We were inseparable in university and everyone always used to make fun of us for wearing matching outfits. The funniest thing about it though, was that we did it unintentionally! We just have style telepathy and therefore decided to name our blog “what we wear”.
The url whatwewear was already taken so we had to settle for “Watt”, which is Vera’s last name. So clever, we know 😉

What type of camera do you use for your blog?

We use a Canon Powershot SX 40 HS, which is a good quality camera and certainly good enough for us. We also use a professional tripod so we rarely use photographers. The tripod is like the third lady on our blog, it’s present at all our photo shoots; although we sometimes look a bit silly posing with the timer 🙂

Where do you find inspiration for your blog posts?

Inspiration is everywhere, in fashion magazines, in movies, in shops, but mostly we are inspired by street styles and by other bloggers.

Who is your fashion inspiration?

We can’t say that we have a single fashion inspiration because we love to combine different looks rather than stick to one style. Some very fashionable women whose styles we love are Olivia Palermo, Anna Dello Russo, Miroslava Duma, and Solange Knowles.

What is your fashion statement?

Dare to wear!

What is your current fashion obsession?

Our current fashion obsession is midi skirts, they are so feminine and ladylike and we love that they are making such a huge comeback. In fact, they’ll be featured on our next post!

What are three things you can’t live without?

Fashionably speaking, mascara, a hot pair of heels and chic dresses. Practically speaking, our families and loved ones are the only thing we absolutely cannot live without.

What is your biggest fashion regret?

We don’t believe in fashion regrets! If you think something is wearable then go for it!

Where do you see the future of your blog going?

Hopefully expanding, working with more designers. We’d love to showcase more of our favorite local talents, as well as work with designers from around the world. And who knows, maybe one day we’ll have our own column in a fabulous fashion magazine!

As per the rules of the blogging awards, we are supposed to nominate 11 other bloggers. We thought it wouldn’t be fair to play a popularity contest and chose only 11 bloggers, especially because there are hundreds who we love and feel inspired by! So we nominate all of you wonderful readers and wish you lots of success and fun on all your blogs!

Thanks again for all your love and support, and thank you Vivian for actually getting us to participate in this 🙂

Happy Spring beautiful people!
To welcome spring in style we decided to post outfits composed of our favorite trends that ruled the runways at the Spring 2014 shows. Check out our review of our favorite trends this season if you haven’t already.

We loved the flower prints and pastels and particularly loved the bejeweled pieces seen at the hottest shows. As girls who love to accessorize and sometimes take more time to pick out jewelry than the outfit itself, what could be better than clothes that come with their own jewelry?!

IMG_19691

Vera wore a jewel encrusted loose top with a pleated pleather miniskirt, knit cardigan, gray tights, brogues, and a silver and perspex necklace.

IMG_20942 IMG_21041 IMG_21061 IMG_21091 IMG_21471

A light cardigan is an absolute must in every closet as the seasons change.

Rony wore a rhinestones encrusted blouse over a button down shirt with a flower print skirt, gray tights, thigh high boots and a neon clutch.

IMG_21181 IMG_21402 IMG_21422 IMG_21451

Not ready to wear short sleeves just yet? Layering is a great way of breaking out your favorite warm weather clothes.

Wishing you all a wonderful spring!
