TGIF! The weekend is finally here. Time for some big decision making, like which party to attend and what hot dress to wear… the life of a fashionista can be so hard!

In all seriousness though, when life gets a bit tough the best thing to do is just to have a great laugh! We immediately thought of this silly photo when planning the post:

We don’t know what this chicken was doing in the middle of the busy road but it definitely stopped traffic!

We wish everyone a delightful weekend with lots of parties, lots of quality time with your loved ones and lots of fun and laughs!

Happy Monday everyone!

We like to lead a healthy lifestyle, we eat healthy and take care of our figures by exercising regularly. We try not to compromise our style, and stay fashionable even while sweating at the gym. If we make an effort to infuse fashion into our sportswear why not do the opposite as well: infuse comfort into our fashion wear! We did so by turning some of our favorite sportswear items into chic wardrobe staples that can be worn just about anywhere!

Sportswear and ready to wear have been mixing a lot recently, from designer collaborations at the big athletic clothes brands (case in point Stella McCartney for Adidas), to sneakers that sport the trendiest prints and colors. What’s not to love about a trend that doesn’t only look good but is also so easily wearable, flattering and comfortable!

Rony wore vintage pink running shorts with a striped button down blouse, gray oversized jacket and beige and pink flats.

Rony’s super short shorts look great with oversized items on top, so as not to reveal too much skin.

We’ve posted about our love for vintage clothes many times and we often wonder what it is about vintage that lures us in so much. We think it must be the fantasy and the romantic aura of vintage pieces, that makes us feel like we’re playing a part in an old Hollywood movie.

A similar effect we’ve grown obsessed with lately are ethnic prints. April is the month of international concepts of style! How do we know? Pick up any of the latest issues of fashion magazines and immerse yourself in a sea of beautiful prints and cuts with traditional wear vibes.

Clothes can often make you feel like you’re living in a fantasy of your own making; maybe that’s why we love them so much! The trick is not letting the “role” turn into a full on costume. Ethnic prints should therefore be worn intelligently, and why not make the outfit more interesting by throwing in inspirations from around the world?!

Vera wore an authentic Chinese gold and green blazer with a white buttoned down shirt, dark skinny jeans, golden toe flats, a gold and rope necklace and a frog ring.

IMG_69311 IMG_69261 IMG_69291 IMG_69431 IMG_69451 IMG_69511

Vera’s gorgeous blazer with its bold colors and intricate detailing is so attention grabbing that the rest of the outfit can be kept more minimalistic.

A white shirt and dark jeans make this outfit office ready.

Rony wore an Eastern European-inspired patterned dress, South American-inspired wool poncho cardigan, 70’s inspired heels, studded and patterned cuffs and a vintage gold necklace.

IMG_69232 IMG_69242 IMG_69391 IMG_69381 IMG_69371

Mixing different prints both in Rony’s accessories and clothes made her outfit unique and interesting.

IMG_69351 IMG_69573 IMG_69593 IMG_69621

Wearing Rony’s dress with a knit pullover rather than a jacket or blazer dresses it down and makes it more day to day ready.

Even a plain white T Shirt can go amazingly well with that poncho that you got from Peru and never dared to wear!

Wide clothes and loose items were very big in the 1970’s to the 1980’s and made a serious statement about how femininity can be interpreted and how fashion could be worn. All of a sudden, chic could be comfortable! As an ode to our revolutionary sisters who back then made changes for all of us and for generations to come, this post is all about going wide and playing with proportions.

Our style

Wide pieces can be used to conceal body parts you are not so confident about and can allow you to draw attention to what you do feel like showing off. While the overall loose outfit worked for the hippies, we are big believers in creating contrast in an outfit – wide top with slim trousers or slimming top with wide trousers. This keeps the outfit flattering and practical.

Vera wore camel wide leg trousers with a rose patterned turtleneck and two-toned camel kitten heels. 

Vera's outfit

 

 

The wide lower part of the outfit made Vera’s upper body look very slim and toned and the wide trousers made her legs look very long.

Vera’s look is very 70’s inspired office wear and is the perfect mix of presentable work outfit and comfort.

Rony wore a vintage sailor cropped blouse with black legging and black and white Oxfords.

IMG_63813 IMG_63711

Wearing an oversized top allows Rony to wear leggings without looking like she was on the way to the gym and keeps the outfit from looking too tight or revealing while at the same time showing off Rony’s toned physique. IMG_64331

IMG_64111 IMG_64131 IMG_64141

These outfits got us through a day at the office and after the photoshoot we strolled through the streets for the whole rest of the day. We felt completely comfortable and at ease!

Tel Aviv Living – Hashoftim St.
This quiet and charming street is populated by minimalistic apartment buildings separated from the street by beautiful gardens. Each building has its barrier of bushes and shrubs which allows for privacy, a noise buffer and green space.

IMG_63691 IMG_63681

We loved the architecture of this particular group of buildings – minimalistic and open, allowing the outside to blend into the building’s lobby.

IMG_64181The play on geometries was a nice background to our play on proportions.

IMG_63742 IMG_64001

So really, proportions aren’t just in clothing and fashion but in architecture and design as well!

Hello loves!
This weekend marked the Jewish holiday of Purim, a holiday that celebrates the Jews’ deliverance from massacre and destruction in the ancient Persian Empire. In order to commemorate their salvation, Jews around the world celebrate in a day of feasting and rejoicing which includes dressing up in costumes and public celebrations.

We absolutely love costumes and dressing up so needless to say this is our favorite holiday!
Rony dressed up as a red-hot devil, wearing a red tutu, red corset, bright red wig and red horns.

Devil may care

Besides hundreds of parties everywhere you look, the biggest party of all took place in the streets!

As in every year during Purim, the city of Tel Aviv organized a huge street party which took place on a main road and included performances by the hottest DJ’s around, parades, headphone parties and most importantly, dancing in the street!

What We Wear was honored to attend the opening of international artist Grimanesa Amoros’ exhibit at Tel Aviv’s Litvak gallery.

IMG_6031
The exhibit, titled Light Between the Islands, consists of installations of “islands” of bubble forms of various sizes with varying drawings imprinted on them.

The bubbles are arranged in modular units and layers scattered around the space with changing light scenes achieved by LED lighting that deeply change the feeling of each island of bubbles – from solid forms that seem to permanently occupy the space to floating ethereal bubbles. The reflective concrete floor of the gallery intensified the visual effects.

Visitors of the exhibit took an active part in it, walking around the islands and creating their own shadows in the space and changing their own appearance as the lighting changed.

We absolutely loved Amoros’ exquisite work and the play on lights and shadows and prints on different forms. The rhythmic organization of the forms in the space truly made us feel as if we were walking on dark water between islands of magical light.

The exhibit is currently on display at Litvak Gallery, a gallery with special focus on glass art. Litvak gallery has featured international glass artists such as Dale Chihuly, Howard Ben Tre and Vaclav Cigler, as well as other world renowned artists.

An additional exhibit on display at the gallery was Czechoslovakian artist Vaclav Cigler’s Spheres, part of his exhibit Light and Space. Cigler’s exhibit features geometric forms made from cut solid optical glass of various transparency and translucency.

What we always find interesting in these exhibits is how each visitor has their own take and perspective on the art. As fashion bloggers who have been disciplined in architecture, we saw the forms as beautiful jewels nesting on beautiful architectural structures.

Fashion imitates Art

Present at the opening were international artists such as Amoros herself and Israeli London-based designer/architect Ron Arad, whose works we have reported on in past posts.

To achieve classy looks we both chose modern LBDs for this opening. Here’s what we wore:
Vera wore a strapless bow tied taffeta dress with a leather jacket, black high heeled mary-janes, and print tights. Vera accessorized with gorgeous jewelry by one of our favorite local jewelry designers, Ariversa.

Rony wore a studded collar dress with a black cardigan, black tights and studded slipper flats. Rony accessorized with an oversized studded cream clutch and gold cuffs.
