Hello boys and girls!

Winter is striking hard, even for us in Israel, where we usually enjoy warm weather year-round. The gray skies and cold winds make it so hard to get out of bed and start the day. All we want to wear are our biggest and warmest sweaters!

Big winter sweaters

Oversized, masculine clothing is very in right now and shows no intention of disappearing from the fashion forecast. Oversized pieces could be anything from jackets to skirts; from your boyfriend jeans, to your boyfriend’s never-worn sweater or some plus sized tunic that can be worn as a dress! Everything goes!
Over sized pieces can be quite tricky though; If you don’t wear them right you might look a bit… well, ridiculous! Whenever wearing something really big remember to put it together with something more form-fitting to create some contrast: a tight dress or skirt, skinny jeans or leggings will do the trick. When wearing an oversized dress or tunic a belt will do the job.

Winter outfits

Vera wore an oversized striped sweater over a striped black and white mini dress with black sheer tights, red flats, glass and metal necklace and a black and white knit scarf.

Happy Winter fashionistas!

The mini? the maxi? what skirt length will it be this winter? We vote Midi! Midi is the perfect length to keep covered up, but not all the way: not too revealing and not too concealing; perfect for every occasion, from office to dinner party, and flattering on every figure! The great thing about the midi is its versatility, it all depends on how you wear it!

In case you’re not yet convinced, this skirt was the star of the hottest winter collections and was seen on the most fabulous fashionistas!

Vera’s tight denim pencil skirt was form fitting to create feminine curves so she set it off with an oversized masculine cut sweater over a long top. Vera completed her outfit with striped tights, cowboy boots, flower print scarf, long coat and a cap.

Rony put her A-lined midi together with the biggest trend of the year, peplum. She wore a red midi skirt with a lace peplum blouse over a button down shirt. She wore high heeled leather boots, a flower print scarf, felt and leather oversized coat, and an oversized canvas bag.

Both of our handmade vintage scarves were given to us by our grandmothers as a souvenir from their Russian ancestry, we love them!

Another one of our cold weather favorites is layering: pile on the tights, skirts, tops, knits, coats scarves and hats to create a warm and chic look.

There’s nothing more romantic than a stroll through the woods after a rainstorm, the forest looks almost magical like a place out of fairy tales.

Lately fashion has been all about the opulent, the festive and glamorous, the excessive, the Baroque. Designers everywhere have been sending their models down the catwalk in clothes, shoes and accessories rich enough to suit 19th century duchesses.

While we adore this trend, not all of us regular day fashionistas have the guts, the confidence, the money and the body to pull off head to toe baroque like certain Vogue editors (ehemm Anna Dello Russo).

For us, practicality is usually the top priority and we must find a way to put together an outfit that -while never neglecting bon chic- works around the clock for our hectic schedules. While over the top always makes a statement, it must also be accessible.

Vera’s favorite Baroque pieces in her wardrobe are a knit golden threaded pullover and a purple rope and gold necklace.

Vera went for the cool biker chic look, choosing mostly blacks to offset the dramatic pieces. Under the knit cardigan she wore a sheer top which made the outfit more romantic, leather jacket, dark jeans, and faux-fur trimmed booties.

Vera’s necklace is such a show maker she didn’t need any other major accessories.

Rony’s favorite Baroque pieces are a brownish gray lace dress and gold and emerald earrings.

Rhinestones, gold and emeraldPeplum and lace

Rony’s dress, with its feminine lace and curve hugging shape is too provocative to be worn during the daytime. Rony made the dress more demure by wearing a peplum rhinestones-adorned blouse.

The glamorous look can be achieved with just a few key items that keep everyone on their toes, yet don’t look overdone.

Hello fashionable people!

Great fashion designers are not appraised only for the trends they create but first and foremost for the detailing of their creations. A designer piece doesn’t have to be “fashionable” per se or scream the latest trend but rather must have unique qualities all its own, whether in the fabrics, the craftsmanship, the sewing, the cuts, etc.
We love to discover and support young rising stars in the fashion industry, and one of our favorite promising young designers by far is Adi Ashur; and let’s just say we are deeply impressed! The multitalented Ms. Ashur expresses her penchant for all fields of design: jewelry, textile, structural design, in her clothes and accessories creating very interesting and unique pieces.

Adi Ashur Designs

Adi’s latest collection is a theatrical yet lavish fete of upholstery, chiffon, canvas, satin, linen, organdy, and lace, as well as feathers, metal, beads, glass, and cotton weaving.

Evening Gowns

The first dress Rony wore was a maxi satin flower print dress with sheer lining in the front. The delicate A shape of the dress is flattering on every figure and gives the illusion of a long body and never-ending legs.

Adi designed the print of the dress using graphic design softwares and then dyed the fabric herself.

Rony wore the gown with an oversized canvas flower necklace, rhinestone cuffs and rhinestone adorned briefs (all designed and created by Adi).

Rony felt like a major diva in this red carpet-ready gown!

Vera wore a pink layered skirt sewn out of upholstery, buttoned up blouse, and an 18th century-inspired flower print canvas waist coat with appliqués. The look was completed with a bright pink cuff and pastel colored leggings.

The voluminous skirt was perfect for a slim body like Vera’s, it accentuated her waist and hips and made her legs seem even slimmer.

Rony’s second dress was a hand-printed yellow collar mini dress which she wore with hand-printed leggings and a chain and glass necklace that attaches at the back of the dress.

This is the ultimate party dress: it has a sexy waist-cinching cut, it flows when you move and is so unique you don’t need to wear any accessories.

However fun, this dress does not disappoint on the craftsmanship; it is a gorgeous couture creation!

Clothes like these require a very unique backdrop. And so we visited Tel Aviv’s Florentine neighborhood, a bustling center of design studios, workshops and furniture shops.

Out and About in Florentine

Florentine, Tel Aviv

The walls of most streets in this neighborhood are adorned with graphic designs, ads, writings and graffiti. This isn’t like any graffiti we’d seen before though, the graphics in this neighborhood are true works of art!

Needless to say we felt like real stars walking down the streets of Florentine in Adi’s amazing creations! Thank you Adi!

What We Wear and Adi Ashur

What We Wear and fashion designer Adi Ashur

The inspiration for Adi’s latest collection came from old circus posters and the retro graphic quality they had. The posters announced the arrival of a new circus and the feeling of a magical phenomenon filled with lights and colors. Adi wanted to create in her collection the effect of walking placards, prints patterns and textures that become three dimensional, come alive and assume a life of their own. In her prints, cuts and techniques Adi brought the old circus into the 21st century.

It's a wrap!

Tel Aviv Fashion Week is in full force and while the city is filled with super fashionable people and designer runway shows, the boutiques are celebrating as well!

You know those boutiques that are so beautiful you just have to stroll through them even if you can’t afford to buy anything? Such is Razili, a boutique selling all the biggest names in Israeli fashion and design innovation.

Of course we were thrilled to attend the boutique’s Fashion Night event, as part of Fashion Week.

Razili has a very unique approach to fashion and works hard on promoting young and promising Israeli designers. Their clothes are made from top notch fabrics and innovative sewing and cuts. Even better, if you ask us, are their accessories! One of our favorite jewelry labels is Noritami. If you recall, Rony rocked their wood and gold necklace at Tel Aviv’s Ready to Wear event. Noritami design accessories using a mix of unconventional materials, such as wood, polymer and fabric with all kinds of metals. The designs themselves are very architectural, which we are of course drawn to.

We loved seeing how the girls in the store put together their outfits, each giving the beautiful clothes and accessories their own twist!

The event was joined by a very romantic rainstorm that marked the much awaited official start of fall in Israel!

Rony wore a maxi asymmetrical navy skirt with a cream knit turtleneck, brown leather jacket, camel booties, golden lace necklace, and a Coach bag.

Vera wore forest green skinny jeans with an oversized gray sweater, green men’s cardigan, gray scarf, oversized necklace, satchel, and the Fly Foot booties we got during Fly Foot’s collection launch party.

Rony felt very artistic that night…

We hope you’re enjoying a very romantic autumn!

What We Wear visited the Yohji Yamamoto exhibit and came out feeling inspired!
The exhibit featured pieces designed by Yamamoto over the past two decades and included a variety of garments, from coats to dresses to pieces designed for his Adidas collection, to menswear.

We were absolutely in awe of each and every piece and the thought and craftsmanship that went into creating Yamamoto’s masterpieces.

The exhibit was held at Holon Design Museum, quite the masterpiece in its own right. The museum was designed by Israeli architect and designer Ron Arad and was the perfect backdrop for Yamamoto’s creations.

Rony’s day at the museum outfit: romper with cutouts, slipper flats, and leather satchel.

Hello fellow fashionistas!

Us modern women are always busy – whether we juggle family, studies, work, supporting our men, a million errands and running a household and of course try to leave a little time for shopping. We don’t always have time to plan our outfits and really think about what to wear on certain occasions. What’s easier than wearing a matched set?! Minimum thought is required, 100% fabulousness achieved.

The return of 80’s and 90’s fashion brought back the perfectly matched sets. The modern take on this trend is much more exciting though: sets that are made effortlessly by putting together similar prints, colors, fabrics, etc. This goes hand in hand with the current fashion attitude of making the outfit all your own and letting your confidence and creativity shine.

Rony wore a sheer owl print chiffon blouse with sheer chiffon overlay shorts, gray fedora, gray peep toe booties, and leather satchel.

The matching fabrics and similar patterns and colors of the pieces Rony wore made this a perfect set and the masculine hat together with the ultra trendy booties made Rony’s outfit uber cool.

Vera wore a flannel button down shirt, turquoise denim skirt and green blazer with checkered All Stars.

Vera’s layered outfit is perfect for the in between seasons. While the jacket and skirt are all modern business woman, Vera’s slap-on-and-go shoes will make this outfit comfortable for any girl’s hectic day.

So when choosing what to wear for the busy day ahead of you we suggest using your creativity to put together your perfect set. One way you could always change it up and keep the matching interesting is with your makeup and nailpolish.
