Hello fellow fashion lovers!

We find that there’s no more inspiring fashion scene than the one found on the streets. The styles found on the streets of New York during the latest New York Fashion Week were no exception! From Olivia Palermo to Miroslava Duma, the ladies of New York fashion wowed us! One theme we particularly loved on the ladies were the different modern takes on flower prints.

Here are some of our ideas:

Flowered Romance
Vera’s version, a romantic pleated frock in subdued fall colors, is perfect for evenings as we transition into fall.

IMG_92851
Vera wore a one shoulder pleated flower print dress with a vintage Prada bag, peep-toe kitten heels, gold chain necklace with leaf pendants, and a link cuff.

**maternity styling tips** The empire cut of Vera’s dress is a comfortable and flattering shape for maternity, because it is sewn above the belly and from there flows down.

This dress can be worn during the day with a cardigan and ankle boots, or in the evening with high heels.

For those of you who are having trouble letting summer go, as we are, bright colors and mismatched prints are still in style and sure to raise the mood of any fall day.

Rony wore a pop art inspired flower print top by Blueberry, flower print peplum skirt, vintage pumps, pearl and satin flower earrings by designer Lee Kodo, and oversized bright colored cocktail rings.

The Fall 2013 collections boasted accessories and jewelry that were as colorful and intricate as the clothes.

The fun advantage of being architects is that we have access to cool construction sites!

August is coming to an end this week and soon the weather will start to cool down and fall will arrive. Where we are it’s too hot to even start thinking about a fall wardrobe so we like to take advantage of this time before the seasons change and wear some of our favorite summer trends and staple items.

1. Tropical prints: These colorful prints are summery and fun and will always remind us of our favorite tropical get away. They can be worn during colder months with tights and a darker palette.

2. Sea-inspired fashion: We could live at the beach and love fashions that reminds us of the sea. More ideas on how to wear sea-inspired and nautical fashion here.

3. Gladiator sandals: The gladiators in their many versions have ruled the sandals scene in the past several summer seasons. Both practical and chic for the hot and humid summer months, our prediction is that the gladiators are not going anywhere anytime soon!

IMG_88811

4. Cropped tops: While this is a trend that isn’t for everyone and isn’t so easily wearable, we absolutely love it for day and night. The crop top can go retro and romantic with a high-waisted midi skirt or sleek chic with wide legged trousers. Our little bit of advice is: don’t show your belly button and don’t wear the crop top with anything tight on bottom; no one wants to look like a 90’s teeny bopper!

IMG_88722

5. Oversized, colorful jewelry: The fashion world has been taken over by lavish statement making jewelry. Our favorite designer is Liat Ginzburg; she makes unique one of a kind creations that can go with anything from jeans and a T-shirt to cocktail dresses.

IMG_87723a

6. Fancy slipper flats: The pointy slipper flats are so elegant and sexy that we would wear them for evening as well!

IMG_88791

Rony wore a backless cropped top with tropical print high waisted shorts, Liat Ginzburg necklace, yellow clutch, and pointy-toed slipper flats.

IMG_88732 IMG_88771 IMG_88672

Vera wore a tropical flower print dress with a thin plaited belt, seashells necklace, and metallic gladiator sandals.

IMG_87501 IMG_87521 IMG_87781 IMG_87871 IMG_87941 IMG_88182 IMG_88261 IMG_88271 IMG_88451 IMG_88471 **Maternity styling tips** The wide A shape of the dress is a perfect fit for comfort. The bright print blurs the developing pregnancy bump while showing a bit of skin as well!

IMG_88571 IMG_88581 IMG_88542

As much as we love the hustle and bustle of the city, there’s no better surprise than finding a gorgeous garden with a fish pond to get away to! This little urban jungle not far from our offices  allows us to get away for a bit and take a break from our busy schedules.

Summertime is here! The perfect time to go sailing and spend as much time by the pool or at the beach as possible! Us working girls don’t always have the kind of time to sunbathe all day so what’s better than wearing the perfect summer dress to make you feel like you are at sea?!
Nautical-inspired clothing is the kind of the trend that comes back every summer season and leaves us feeling like the coolest skipper in town!

Rony wore a wave print T Shirt dress with a striped quilt bag, rope and gold necklace, patterned and studded cuffs and cage high heeled sandals.

Vera wore a cut-out striped dress with a rope belt, layered charm necklace, gold plate necklace and vintage cat heel sandals.

IMG_83982 IMG_84351 IMG_84281 IMG_84301

The great thing about these dresses is that they could be worn with heels to a party on a yacht or can be worn over a bikini for the hottest look at the beach. All it takes is the right shoes and accessories!

Summer is officially here, and what a way to kick summer off with the month of July, the month of both our birthdays!

Days and nights are getting warmer and the humidity is getting more intense. Time to break out some easy breezy, comfortable summer wear!
Our favorite summer uniform is long loose dresses, classy ones that labels such as Oscar de la Renta and Diane Von Furstenberg have been perfecting each season. Ones that you can wear all day in sandals or slip on a pair of heels and wear in the evening.

IMG_82521

Here are some of our favorites:
Rony wore a midi strapless print dress with a waist cinching belt, gold leather sandals, rope and gold woven clutch, wide brimmed hat and lots of vintage jewelry.

IMG_83601

Rony’s outfit is perfect for long days in the sun. The right accessories keep it stylish and chic.

Vera wore a loose fitted print baby doll mini dress with cork wedges and a large beaded necklace.

IMG_83752

Vera’s dress is so comfortable it can last you through an entire hot day. Vera’s accessories offset the cuteness of the dress and make the look more grown up – ready to tackle business as well as pleasure!

We found the most amazing location for this photoshoot: a section of Herzlia park that was recently remodeled with a wooden walkway surrounded by tall reeds and trees. The perfect spot for a picnic or a summer stroll!

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.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Last night we went to Asaf Avidan’s concert in Caesaria’s amphitheater and are still enchanted by Avidan’s spell!

IMG_5558

Asaf Avidan is an internationally renowned Israeli musician and multitalent. He sings, writes songs, plays the guitar, electric guitar and harmonica and casts a spell on his bewildered audience. We’ve always been big fans of his music but nothing could’ve prepared us for such an incredible, nearly three hour live show!

IMG_5549 IMG_5550 IMG_5553

The concert took place in Caesaria, home to one of the most beautiful archeological sites in the world, dating back to the Roman Empire. The performance was held in a Roman amphitheater, adding to the dramatic effects and powerful acoustics.

One of our favorite songs from Asaf Avidan’s latest album (Different Pulses), Love it or Leave it.

Visit Asaf’s website here for more info and tour dates. We highly recommend listening to his music and going to his concerts!

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.
