Happy friday ladies and gents! Man are we happy it’s the weekend!!
After the hard and stressful week we had, all we feel like is putting on our most fabulous dancing shoes and going out for a girls’ night out on the town!
This week’s pick was taken at a gallery opening we attended as part of Tel Aviv Fashion Night Out event. The gallery featured an exhibit by contemporary artist Eran Shakine whose pieces were very much fashion-forward.
Case in Point: painting of John Galliano modeling his own creations!
Wishing you all a wonderful, restful and happy weekend!

We love being girls and we love being girly girls and dressing the part! We can also, however, really appreciate a sexy masculine look.
While we’ve explored the masculine power dressing before – see post here and here – this time we decided to unleash our inner bad boys, with a little biker chic, a lot of classic Black+White and a whole lot of winter must haves!
Our inspiration for this post was Diane Keaton’s effortless elegance as Annie Hall in Woody Allen’s 1977 film.

Vera wore a button down white blouse and black leggings, patterned knit vest, black hat, masculine leather moccasins, and layered chain necklaces.
***Pregnancy styling tip*** When pregnant, all you want to wear are leggings, but that doesn’t mean you have to look like you’re going to the gym! Style up your leggings with a nice blouse, cardigan, and lots of fabulous accessories.
Rony wore a white button down blouse and pleather shorts over tights, embroidered vintage vest, wide brimmed hat, leather ankle boots and layered necklaces.
***Styling tip*** Wearing a high waisted cut and black tights makes your legs look super long and sexy!
Hats are very big right now and are the perfect way to add a bit of a hip twist to your outfit.
In motion: We always try to deliver great content that is more than just fashion. Here’s our little attempt at artistic fashion phototgraphy.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Capes were all the rage in the fall collections, and for good reason; what’s more fun than feeling like storybook heroines while braving the rain and the cold?!
We decided to give capes a go in one of our favorite colors – Red. Red is a very powerful, feminine, eye-catching color; exactly the kind of mood lifting color we need for those dreary cold winter days!
Rony wore a hooded Urban Outfitters cape with an Asos faux fur stole.
Under the cozy coverup she wore a button down feather print blouse, print skirt, rhinestones necklace, earrings, rings and cuff, and Steve Madden velvet peep toe wedges.
Rony’s faux fur and piles of accessories made this outfit lavish and fit to impress.
Vera wore a knit turtleneck cape.
Under her cozy coverup she wore an asymmetrical top, velvet leggings, blush red flats and a gold geometric necklace.
The great thing about Vera’s cape is its versatility: it can be worn as a cape or a scarf and create different looks.
Velvet is coming back in a big way this season. We suggest wearing little touches of velvet here and there for a cool wintery effect.
One of our fun joys in life is makeup. We love playing around with it as much as we love playing with our outfits. Being the busy girls we are, our makeup routine is usually very basic. We recently received a wonderful gift: the book Makeup is Art by the Academy of Freelance Makeup, a book filled with amazing ideas and inspirations. We decided to take this opportunity and really get inspired and explore looks we don’t usually wear.
Vera went for earthly tones of brown, gold and light pink. These are the perfect makeup colors for fall and they beautifully compliment her red cape.
Rony decided to mix colors and went for turquoise and antique pink on her eyes and bright pink on her lips. These colors bring out Rony’s brown eyes and give her outfit an edgy flair.
Along with the fabulous book, we also received a massive package of Joy treats (oh the perks of being fashion bloggers). Joy treats are a new product launched and manufactured by Strauss Group, an international food and beverage company based in Israel.
The idea behind “Joy” is to give consumers just that – a big joy they can enjoy for breakfast, on their break at work, or when they get home from a busy and exhausting day. The treats come in awesome flavors (our favorite is the chocolate with coconut bits) which include fruit chunks and chocolate sprinkles and other delicacies.
Strauss also launched a Joy %0 fat treat so we can enjoy all that chocolaty taste without feeling guilty.

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!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

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!

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.
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.
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.
Rony wore a backless knit top with a high waisted layered skirt with jewel and lace overlay.
For Rony’s second outfit she wore a form fitting dress with a bow tied tulle cape.
If you thought that we always look as fierce as when we’re posing, well… of course we do!
All clothing and accessories: Adi Ashur designs, studded clutch, Jeffrey Campbell shoes.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Another recent fashion graduate, Mayan Levi Alentek, exhibited hand-knit watermelon heels, very humorously named “kitchen wear”.
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.
Rony wore a bustier blouse, pinstriped skort, cage heels, layered rhinestone necklaces, and a vintage Chanel bag.
The exhibit was held at an amazing gallery, a beautiful space with a gorgeous garden.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The exhibit went further to discuss the possibility of jewelry becoming a game or a toy rather than just an object of aesthetics.
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.
