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.

Last night we attended one of our favorite fashion events of the year: Fashion Night Out Tel Aviv, the kick start event for Tel Aviv Fashion Week. This is only the second year the event takes place in our city, last year’s event was such a success that it was bound to become an annual fashion tradition!

IMG_04592

As in last year’s event, FNO was held at Kikar Hamedina, Tel Aviv’s central square of luxury shopping.

IMG_62682

The square’s luxurious boutiques opened their doors to fashion enthusiasts, society ladies, models, journalists, and innocent passers-by enjoying the celebrations.

This year’s event was extra special though, as it featured a modern art exhibit by artist Eran Shakine, held at the square’s Zemack Gallery.

IMG_04281 IMG_04301 IMG_04441 IMG_04351
We really enjoyed this exhibit; you know how much we love our art, and especially art inspired by fashion. The bronze heels sculptures could be likened to three dimensional fashion illustrations.

IMG_04311

“John Galliano trying on one of his creations” Genius!IMG_04331 IMG_04411 IMG_04361 IMG_044011

We browsed the amazing sales the boutiques had to offer. We were obviously blinded by all the Gucci, Burberry, Lanvin, Prada, etc, but our favorite boutiques were the ones selling local labels, from the well-known to the obscure, and really unique clothing.

We sipped some bubbly (Well, Rony sipped bubbly while pregnant Vera enjoyed her soda). and developed a serious sugar high from all the amazing sweets!

IMG_04541

Vera wore a maxi button-down flannel dress with a rhinestone studded denim jacket, fringe booties, thin waist-cinching belt, gold jewelry and a leather tote.

IMG_6266 IMG_04181

Rony wore a vintage bow tied blouse with a striped skirt, asymmetrical cut studded leather jacket, high heeled booties, striped quilt bag and a hair bow.

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?!

IMG_78702 IMG_78711

IMG_78662

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.

IMG_79743

We both wore spiked headbands, which we are absolutely obsessed with at the moment!

Matching sets and suits have always been elegant and classy but have lately taken on a new role and became more interesting and unexpected. The modern woman’s suit is one that should be suited to the many activities of her day. A perfect set could be made up of matching patterns or prints, colors, or cuts.

IMG_76171 IMG_76181

Vera wore a vintage pink silk and lace set composed of a button down blouse and maxi skirt.Vera matched her set with a skinny belt, and cut out kitten heels.

IMG_76921 IMG_76231 IMG_76581 IMG_76591 IMG_76691 IMG_76701

IMG_76681

Vera’s outfit is breezy and comfortable yet extremely chic and classy.

Rony wore a green set composed of green shorts and a green blazer. Rony wore her set with a flower print blouse and leopard print mary janes.

IMG_76291 IMG_76332 IMG_76371 IMG_76382 IMG_76451IMG_76512

Rony’s outfit is perfect for a full day of chic and can go from day to night.

Welcome to suburbia. Although we are city girls at heart there’s something nice about waking up to a white picket fence and lots of green.

As architects, there’s nothing that inspires us more than an open plaza overlooking the city’s buildings – the square shapes, the different proportions, the geometries. As fashionistas, there’s nothing we love more than mixing prints and wearing things our own way.

IMG_73734

Geometric prints have ruled the fashion scene for the past couple seasons and show no sign of slowing down. Whether it was checkered dresses at Vuitton or rhombus print suits at Prada, this trend is everywhere you look! We particularly loved the pop art qualities of the lavish prints and decided to paint a picture of our own:

IMG_73632 IMG_73642

Rony wore an Escher-esque print puffy sleeved dress with a checkered Prada bag, studded moccasins and lots of big and bold geometric jewelry.

IMG_74661 IMG_74691

IMG_74702IMG_74711 IMG_74671

Quick fix up for a bad hair day: tie your hair up in a tight ponytail and braid it for a look that is chic, classy and pulled together.

IMG_73702 IMG_73712

Vera wore a Lichtenstein-esque star printed cut out tunic with red high waisted trousers, black blazer, big and bold geometric silver jewelry, leopard print glasses and studded flats.

IMG_74731

IMG_74811 IMG_74821 IMG_74851 IMG_74881

Vera’s tunic is so versatile – it can be worn as a dress or tucked in as a blouse and can be casual or office ready with a fitted blazer.

The ultimate city girl isn’t afraid to wear attention-grabbing bold prints and stop traffic!

Happy anniversary to our blog! What We Wear is a year old, and what a year it has been!!

What started from an idea of posting random pictures of our daily outfits here and there became an amazing worldwide fashion community! It all happened thanks to you, our amazing followers and readers! All the support gave us the motivation to build up a platform of fashion for “real people”, which expanded with forays into art, design, travel and culture all through our personal point of view.

What We Wore

How it all started!

We may attempt to pose like we’re gracing the pages of Vogue, but we never take ourselves too seriously. For this very special Blogaversary post we decided to share with you the “behind the scenes”, some of the funniest and most awkward moments from some of our posts over the past year:

Flower Children

We have so much fun we tend to forget ourselves; the camera can keep rolling and rolling.. More from this post here.

Blue Jeans

We try to reinvent posing. Vera: Horse face is the new duck face! More from Blue Jeans here.

Summer sunshine in a Winter Wonderland

Tongues are The Thing in our post Summer Sunshine in a Winter Wonderland

IMG_32491

Balloons do wonders for your hair!Makeup Your Mind

We too have to brave the elements: sun in our eyes and wind in our face in Makeup your Mind

Fashion Playground

We don’t always look graceful in high heels. Rony’s high heeled platforms sinking in the sand in our post Fashion Playground.

Hitchcock Heroines

We get really silly. Vera gets a bit too into the horror movie theme in Hitchcock Heroines

Hot Pants!

We pay for buying cheap! Vera in Hot Pants

Who runs the World? Girls!

We get really possessive. “That’s my necklace! No, mine!” 

Midriff Barers

We can somehow magically switch haircolor. Vera being the blonde: “Wait, what..??”

Color Blocking

We are afraid of big bad monsters. Rony: “OMG is that a bee?!”

Midriff Barers

We’re great at multitasking, even while shooting our post Midriff Barers. Uber-fashionable pool cleaner anyone?

The Skirt Chronicles

We get really really tired. Rony takes a nap while shooting The Skirt Chronicles ZzzzZZZzzZzzzz.

But in all seriousness, our blog has given us an “excuse” to visit and document some of the most wonderful sites Tel Aviv has to offer.

Cut it Out

…and attend some exclusive fashion events.

And at the end of the day we always have fun because we are, afterall, best friends!

Casual Glam

Having a silly moment while shooting our post Casual Glam

This is the perfect opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us over the past year: our friends and families, those who allowed us to style them, those who allowed us to photograph them, the photographers and collaborators, the city of Tel Aviv and Israel in general for being the perfect backdrop, and most of all our amazing readers!

So what’s coming up next you ask? A lot of fashion of course, more cooperative work with the most amazing local designers, soon to come our own fashion column in a popular British website, full coverage of the local fashion events, more Street Style stars, personal styling tips and much more!

Getting Inspired

With hopes of delivering amazing content in the future,

This was a very fun and inspired week for What We Wear as we attended “Flash”, a fashion event that promotes young up and coming designers.

Flash Fashion Event

The event featured the latest collections in clothing, jewelry, outerwear and even tights. All the gorgeous creations on sale were definitely a sight for sore eyes!

Flash fashion event

Among our favorite collections on display at the event:
Petitaureau: A jewelry and accessories label designed by the talented Mayan Hazan which features ultra feminine and delicate items with admirable attention to details. Everything from the pendants (or pin) to the clasps is adorned with hearts, stars, skulls, etc. Adorable!

Itay Gonen Accessories: An eponymous label offering serious statement making jewelry made from a variety of materials. This is the kind of jewelry that could make an entire outfit, no need for anything else!

Ida Nudel: Remember our lavish photoshoot with fashion designer Adi Ashur? Ida Nudel was her classmate at Wizo Design Academy, and is just as talented. On display were feminine and adorable tops, dresses and pants. We were really impressed by the craftsmanship of Ida’s collection, particularly the hand-sewn jackets! Gorgeous works of art!

Some other designer highlights were Guapa, a collection dedicated to leggings, in every color and every print! The designer was just as cool as her pieces.

Guapa collection and designer

Miki B‘s collection offers beautiful clothes in so many colors and prints. Our favorite was a fluffy, sparkly, multicolored number that we wish we would’ve found before New Year’s Eve; it would’ve been the perfect piece to wear!

The event took place at the cool and trendy Polaroid bar and was joined by cool beats courtesy of Dj Lomp & Joe.
