Happy Valentine’s Day to our loved ones around the world!

We love celebrating love, and every celebration for us is a great excuse to experiment with our style. This year we decided to focus on the color Red, as it is the ultimate color of romance and passion. Here are some of our tips for a red hot Valentine’s outfit.

When looking for a dress for a big occasion the first thing we look for is the right cut. The most important thing about a party dress is that it suits your figure and that you feel your best in it. If you’re not sure what cut suits you the best, go for a shape that flaunts the best parts of your body, what you are most confident about. Rony has a very feminine figure and a small waist so she went for the princess cut- This cut keeps everything cinched in and put together while flaunting Rony’s figure.

We like to dress understatedly sexy, there’s a fine line between seductress and trash. Rony decided to show a bit of skin in the back and kept the rest of the dress covered, yet form fitting.

Choosing the right fabric is as important as the cut of the dress.

Accessorizing : Rony’s dress was so attention grabbing, she decided to keep the rest of her outfit solid and classy. She wore drop rhinestones earrings that complimented the retro style of the dress, sheer black tights and black nail polish, and black high heeled pumps.

Remember the online shopping event we told you about? Well we decided to really take advantage of the event and stock up on some must haves for our winter wardrobes.

IMG_81801

Here are some of the items we got.
Skinny stretch jeans from 1item in maroon and in flower print. These are comfortable and practical and can go from office to evening.

IMG_30421

Patterned sweater from 1item, flower appliqué crepe skirt and leather bag from Niti Chic Boutique. We were in love with this skirt the moment we saw it, it is so romantic and versatile and really flattering! This is the perfect skirt for all seasons. A practical black bag is a must.

IMG_30431 IMG_30441

Because we have every intention of wearing short dresses and skirts throughout winter, tights are a must. Tights don’t have to be worn just for practical reasons, we like to play with patterns and colors, and find that sheer tights (with lower denier numbers) are a very sexy addition to the outfit. We picked out these fun patterned tights.

IMG_81811 IMG_30531

In colder months the cold weather leaves our skin dry and chipped and e find that we have to take extra good care of our skin. While we try to moisturize more, a good facial cleanser is a must. We got Vichy’s purete thermale cleanser from the fabulous Medi Link online pharmacy; it leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh without drying it.

IMG_30491

We just had to accessorize our iPhone with this fabulous Marylin Monroe phone cover from 1item!

IMG_30511

We weren’t the only ones who got to enjoy this shopping experience, little Ms. Watts scored this adorable striped sweater from Castro. Cute and cozy!

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.

IMG_7250

IMG_23142

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.

IMG_23322

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.

In a world where fashion is accessible anywhere and everywhere on the web, every designer item has a knockoff and when a trend becomes trendy every self respecting fashionista wears it (case in point: the Zara skort), we want unique!

It has always been our goal, and we know that many girls share these feelings, to wear something that not everyone has, something more special and rare.
In comes jewelry designer Liat Ginzburg.

IMG_00931 IMG_03161

Ginzburg jewelry can best be described as works of art. All pieces are hand made by the designer and no two pieces are exactly the same.

Liat creates her jewelry using unique components, from vintage pieces from the 70`s and the 80`s, which she collects on her travels in streets and markets around the world, to various plastic, perspex, rubber and wood components, combined with pieces created by laser cutter.

IMG_00841 IMG_00871

IMG_03131

Ginzburg’s unique jewelry has been featured in the most prestigious fashion magazines around the world, from Italian Vogue to French Grazia, to Spanish Harper’s Bazaar, to Belle Mode. She has become the darling of stylists and celebs and women from across the world. While we were photoshooting at Liat’s studio, jewelry was getting picked up for Trinny and Susannah’s Tv show, currently being shot in Israel.

That’s pretty impressive for a designer who doesn’t even have a PR or marketing team. She must not need one, her stunning jewelry speaks for itself.

Some of our favorite Ginzburg Jewelry pieces:
We admit it was very hard to pick because we loved everything!

What we wore

The styling idea behind our outfits for this post was to create a blank canvas for Liat’s beautiful jewelry. After reading our friend Diana of Manhattan Image and Style‘s post on colors that go with your skin tone, we realized we love clothes in light yellows but never actually wear them because we always assumed they would look bad with our fair skin! Diana inspired us to give these colors a try!

Vera wore a plaid yellow strapless dress with a sheer banana blouse and light beige sweater on top.

IMG_02182

Vera is now starting the third trimester of her pregnancy so she has quite a big belly, which by now is pretty difficult to hide.

IMG_01282

Vera likes to show off other parts of her body, like her legs which have stayed skinny throughout her pregnancy (some girls are just lucky!).
Vera’s outfit, composed of layers, knits, and tights, is perfect for fall and as the weather gets colder.

Rony wore a cream sheer top with Topshop banana tweed shorts and a vintage beige masculine blazer.

IMG_02561

IMG_01971Rony’s shorts do a great job showing off her long legs; since they are so short, wearing them with oversized pieces on top keeps the outfit elegant and interesting.

We do believe opposites attract when it comes to fashion so to set off our sexy outfits, we both rocked masculine flat booties, perfect for fall!

This photoshoot was taken at Liat’s studio, a wonderland in its own right, rich with colors and textures and adorable animals that model jewelry!

IMG_03181IMG_04101IMG_02061 IMG_02032 IMG_02001 IMG_00791
We had so much fun playing in Liat’s studio, we really felt like little girls in a candy store!

Thank you for everything Liat Ginzburg!!

For the last in the series of exhibits we attended as part of the educational and inspiring Holon Fashion Week, we had the great pleasure of visiting world renowned Milliner Stephen Jones‘ hat exhibit.

IMG_6239

Mr. Jones is one of the most important milliners of the 20th and early 21st century. He has designed hats for the likes of Dior couture and Vivienne Westwood, as well as icons like Grace Jones, Diana Ross, Lady Gaga and Boy George. His designs have been exhibited at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum (more from the museum here), and was invited as a guest of Holon Fashion Week, to educate the local fashion community on iconic fashion-making.

The exhibit showcased a collection of some of Jones’ favorite hats, in varying materials and styles.

IMG_00031

IMG_99871 IMG_99891 IMG_99912

We were really impressed with the craftsmanship and design behind the hats but what we loved the most was the humor and fun that Mr. Jones infuses into each and every single one of his hats. And that’s what fashion should be, no? Fun and never taking itself too seriously.

IMG_99941 IMG_99921

Some of our favorites:
A matador inspired hat adorned with a silk flower, the perfect match between strong and bold and feminine and pretty.

IMG_00061 IMG_00081

Oversized metal eyelashes.

IMG_99961 IMG_99981

We wished there was more on display, Jones’ stunning creations left us craving more!

The exhibit was held at the Holon Design Museum which always houses intriguing design exhibits. You may remember this museum from the awe-inspiring Yohji Yamamoto exhibit we attended.

While we were there we decided to visit another exhibit, this one by Ron Arad, the industrial designer/architect who designed the museum itself.

IMG_00222

What’s so interesting about Ron Arad is that in everything he designs, whether it’s architecture, furniture, or art, he employs what we like to call “new age artisanship”.
Computer softwares and technologies are employed at every stage of the work process, from planning to design to implementation and production. This becomes very interesting with the different materials Arad uses, from metals to plastics to video projected onto silicon cables.

IMG_00541 IMG_00531

Rony wore a feather print blouse with an oriental flower print maxi skirt, studded high heeled mary janes, Marni for H&M necklace, and leather oversized clutch.

Holon fashion week is going at full force and after visiting intriguing jewelry and shoe design exhibits, up next on our busy schedules was New Love: an exhibit featuring the concept “new love”, as seen and expressed by fashion people, artists, photographers, and designers.

IMG_6135

Tamar Karavan, the stylist and fashion photographer curator of the exhibit, said that she chose artists and designers to feature in the exhibit who all share the same sentiment; that “new love” is something that gives you a “high” of happiness, euphoria and curiosity and at the same time makes you apprehensive and unsure.

IMG_93161 IMG_93222

White dress by designer Dorin Frankfurt, with painting and installation by artist Yoav Hirsh: the perfect “marriage” between fashion and artIMG_93312

IMG_93591 IMG_93322

One of Karavan’s pieces were featured in the exhibit as well: A one-piece bathing suit where the stitching is a medical drawing of the heart with its arteries and blood canals, and by it a photo of Tamar Karavan, modeling the bathing suit.

IMG_93331

Another beautiful and inspired piece was a dress made out of paper by young designer Odelia Arnold, as inspired by poetry written by famed stylist Mayan Goldman.

IMG_93413

Our favorite piece in this exhibit was Fontaine de Sang (French for Fountain of Blood), a stunning hand-sewn silk couture piece with a bleeding heart. This piece was designed by Mor Kfir, who recently graduated with a degree in fashion design.

IMG_93383 IMG_93473 IMG_93522

Another recent fashion graduate, Mayan Levi Alentek, exhibited hand-knit watermelon heels, very humorously named “kitchen wear”.

IMG_93171

We’re sure we’ll see a lot more from these two creative minds in the future.

Vera wore a layered midi skirt, striped top, silver chain necklaces, red ballerina flats, black tote and knit cardigan.

IMG_93481

Rony wore a bustier blouse, pinstriped skort, cage heels, layered rhinestone necklaces, and a vintage Chanel bag.

IMG_93534

The exhibit was held at an amazing gallery, a beautiful space with a gorgeous garden.

IMG_93621 IMG_93711

This gallery is very aptly named The Farm, it is a bit of rural land in the middle of the city. While the place was a bit hard to find, it was definitely worth our efforts!

Hello fellow fashion enthusiasts!
Fashion weeks from all over the world are filling up our schedules and all the fashion websites we come across. The Israeli fashion weeks won’t disappoint either, from the more conceptual fashion week in Holon to the fashion extravaganza in Tel Aviv! We bring you reports with the inside scoop!

Fashion Week is a very exciting time because, other than runway shows and celeb sightings, each city hosting fashion week also opens a series of fashion and design exhibits for all the public to enjoy. These amazing exhibits show a new and different look into the Israeli fashion industry.

Couple Of

IMG_93762

We attended From Sketch to Shoe, a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the design process that goes into the creation of shoes at fashion house Couple Of, one of the most unique shoe-makers in Israel.
The exhibit featured beautiful illustrations that designers Shelly Satat and Eilon Combor develop and perfect as part of designing their “perfect shoe” – one that is both unique and functional, and the technology used to create the final product – CAD tools and laser cutting.

IMG_93861 IMG_93832 IMG_93903 IMG_93931 IMG_93952

The exhibit was held at Holon Institute of Technology, one of the best design schools in the country, where the courtyards are decorated with innovative projects.

One of our favorites: a garden chair made out of old CD’s, bringing together recycling, design and innovation.

IMG_93982 IMG_94012

From Jewel to Practicality

Our next stop was an amazing jewelry exhibit inspired by puzzle games. The exhibit was divided into four groups of puzzle games, each group exhibiting different variations of jewelry styles.
The idea behind the designs is simple yet very sophisticated and allowed designer Yael Fridman to create beautiful pieces that any girl would love to wear.

IMG_94061 IMG_94402

The exhibit went further to discuss the possibility of jewelry becoming a game or a toy rather than just an object of aesthetics.

IMG_94312

Fridman’s jewels were designed and developed using computer technology and 3D printing machines both during the research process and while creating the final product. This was intriguing to us because, much like in the field of architecture, computed aided production and manufacturing is the way of the future and is sure to change how we think and create as designers.

More fashion exhibits coming up next, stay tuned on our blog, facebook, twitter, and instagram!

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!

IMG_80371IMG_80401

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.

IMG_80412 IMG_80421 IMG_80433 IMG_80441

IMG_80921 IMG_80621 IMG_80642

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!

IMG_80461IMG_80601

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!

IMG_80681 IMG_80392 IMG_80671

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!

IMG_80722 IMG_80732

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.

IMG_80941 IMG_80451

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!

IMG_80852 IMG_81101 IMG_81012 IMG_81032
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.

IMG_81063What We Wear and Hagar Satat

Vera wore a sparkly graphic print T Shirt with a layered midi skirt, mustard cardigan, studded moccasins and collar necklace, and a knit bag.

IMG_81131 IMG_81161 IMG_81172

Rony wore a toucan-print peplum top with a layered miniskirt, gray patent stilettos, vintage silk and Perspex purse and a layered necklace.

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?!

Vera wore a collared Little Black Dress with her cheeky “No Silicon” T-Shirt.

IMG_79881 IMG_79961 IMG_79991 IMG_80011That’s right boys and girls, this girl is all real! Vera accessorized with red velvet bow pumps, red clutch, and cuffs she made herself out of magazine cutouts!

IMG_80051

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!

IMG_79731 IMG_79811 IMG_79821 IMG_79832

Rony accessorized with checkered peep toes, multicolored satchel and a pearl collar necklace.
