If you’ve been following us, you already how much we love to travel, see and explore. Like the Coco Chanel quote in our blog’s header says, we believe that fashion is in everything. Throughout the history of design, designers got inspired by nature, by world heritage, and by their surroundings. So here’s a glimpse of what inspires us.
Our latest travel destination was England, we traveled the country from north to south, and here we will share with you some of our favorite places and travel memoirs.
First stop: Canterbury, Kent.

This year was very meaningful for both of us, but especially for Vera, whose pregnancy was documented on the blog. It’s not easy to be a fashionista while pregnant but Vera never gave up her style.

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!

534260_450032261772096_1327778101_n

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!

IMG_64601

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.

IMG_09621

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!

IMG_09081

Hats are very big right now and are the perfect way to add a bit of a hip twist to your outfit.

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!

IMG_06601

IMG_06612

Rony wore a hooded Urban Outfitters cape with an Asos faux fur stole.

IMG_08282

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.

IMG_08351 IMG_08371 IMG_08411

IMG_08661

Rony’s faux fur and piles of accessories made this outfit lavish and fit to impress.

IMG_06902 IMG_06992 IMG_07151 IMG_07251 IMG_07331 IMG_07501 IMG_08091 IMG_08181 IMG_08221

Vera wore a knit turtleneck cape.

IMG_08461

Under her cozy coverup she wore an asymmetrical top, velvet leggings, blush red flats and a gold geometric necklace.

IMG_08551 IMG_08561 IMG_08582 IMG_08641

The great thing about Vera’s cape is its versatility: it can be worn as a cape or a scarf and create different looks.

IMG_06671 IMG_06711 IMG_06782 IMG_06811 IMG_07621 IMG_07731 IMG_07851 IMG_08001 IMG_07981

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.

IMG_08611

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.

IMG_6448

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.

IMG_08701

IMG_08522

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.

IMG_08731

IMG_08321

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.

IMG_6447

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.

IMG_10291What we like to enJOY when we get home: Fashion magazines and Joy treats!

IMG_10331Besides fashion, sweets are definitely some of our greatest joys in life, especially when they come packaged in such pretty fall colors! Yes, we see fashion in everything!

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.

IMG_63771

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!

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!

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.

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.

IMG_94561 IMG_94461

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