Sheer clothing is so hot right now! What we love about this trend is how versatile it is: it can have a romantic, delicate look, it can go more sexy and bold and it can also be totally right as office wear! It’s all a matter of layering the fabric and putting together the outfit.

Vera wore a dotted sheer fuchsia blouse over a camisole with sheer overlay shorts, strappy wedges, and a gold and lavender rope necklace.

Both of us rocked one of our favorite hot accessories of the moment – the see through clutch. Vera chose a neon yellow version and Rony a clear one.

The funnest thing about summer is that you can get away with wearing and mixing almost any colors! If you’re not comfortable with wearing bright colors in your clothes, incorporate them into your accessories as we did: Vera’s purple necklace and neon yellow purse and Rony’s multicolored necklace and bright orange ring.

One rule of thumb we always like to follow is to either reveal on the upper body or to reveal on the lower body, never both. With this trend we feel it is especially true, so that the outfit doesn’t become too over the top. And if you decide to go bold and show some skin, don’t forget to wear your best under garments!

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!

Flowers in the forest

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!

Winter Fashions

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.

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.

Hello friends!

We have recently noticed that Vogue magazine, in its fashion spreads, has been noting not only which designer the clothes featured were designed by, but also the models wearing them. This goes to show that the model wearing the clothes matters; She (or he) is no longer just a hanger but a personality that is just as important in making the outfit what it is. Anyone can buy the latest trends, if not by the designer who made them then by the million stores that imitate them. However, not everyone can wear the latest trends and own them and make them all their own. In a world where the most successful pop stars are the kookiest (case in point Lady Gaga and Nikki Minaj) and fashion bloggers become style icons, we are entering an era of personal style where the statement matters more than the clothes.

In that spirit, the current rage in the fashion world is prints: the more the merrier, bold prints mixed together against all rhyme or reason. In this trend all rules go out the window; forget what you’ve been told before about what “clashes”, now it’s up to you to put together whatever you see fit and whatever makes you happy! What an exciting time!! Mixed Prada prints at London fashion week. Photo courtesy of vogue.com.

We decided to dedicate a post to this because we’ve always believed that it’s all about the person wearing the clothes and how they put their outfit together. Vera Watts is a Russian Born fashionista who was raised in Israel, grew up on punk rock, loves cats and has a background in modeling. Ever the punky funky chick, Vera always likes to put together outfits that keep everyone on their toes. This time she chose a totally unique look by putting together prom queen chic with punky accessories. Vera wore a sheer polka dot blouse over a print dress. She accessorized with a plastic and metal necklace, studded belt, and studded leather moccasins. Rony Shapira was raised in the United States, has been putting together outfits for herself and others since the age of three, collects fashion magazines obsessively, and has a background in art which won her nationwide awards and recognition. Always a lady, Rony has always been into the retro feminine look. This time she chose retro 70s, a look that is very big right now, and put a girly twist on the flower children chic. Rony wore a toucan print peplum blouse with heart print cropped pants. She accessorized with a rope and gold necklace, big cocktail rings, silk hair tie, and peep toe booties.
Besides being fashion fanatics, Vera and Rony aspire to open an architecture firm together. What about you? Tell us about yourself and your personal style statement!

Go on and shock everyone with your most plentiful and print-full outfit! Don’t forget to dare and let your personality shine!

Hey all!

What is fashion without makeup?! The right makeup combination can do wonders for your look! We’re usually no-effort-required-makeup girls; the most we put on when we leave the house is mascara. However, when we really feel like bringing out our inner divas we like to wow them with our makeup!

For this post we paid a visit to our favorite eye makeup store, The Eye Shadow Store, for tips and guides on how to use your make up wisely to upgrade your daily and nightly looks with the help of the right products! We recently discovered The Eye Shadow Store on the internet and were thrilled to find a makeup collection with an incredible range of beautiful colors, high quality powder shadows and brushes and amazing tips on how to apply makeup like a pro!

http://www.eyeshadowstore.com/

So here’s the step by step guide on how to get that smoky eye effect we’ve been lusting after!

1. Apply some primer or a concealer on your eye lid.

2. Choose a base color eye shadow and apply on the eye lid and a bit under the corner of the eye.

3. Choose a color a bit darker then the base and apply from the corner of the eye to the middle of lid and blur with the “Fluff’ brush.

Image

4. Choose s dark tone and apply just like before but a little closer to the brow

5. Choose an even darker tone, black for evening, and apply on the tip of the corner towards the brow

6. Apply the base tone again on the middle of the lid and towards the inner corner of the eye.

7. Apply a concealer under the eye

Image

8. Apply a very thin line with a dark tone eyeliner and a thick dose of mascara!

9. You are ready for the makeup foundation.

10. Don’t forget some blush and a touch of rouge!

Another amazing tip we got from The Eye Shadow Store is: when using the smoky eye effect you want all the attention to go to your eyes so use a nude lip color to keep from looking like the circus clown!

Eye Shadow Store products used to achieve our looks:

Day look – Lavender, Surprise, Devotion, Purity.

The brushes used to apply the eye shadows were: C213, C138, C209, C200, SS006, AC009, C153.

For the day look, Vera wore a patterned sheer envelope blouse with a cloth aquamarine skirt and gladiator wedges. Vera’s top made the outfit feminine summery and fresh and the skirt kept it office appropriate. She kept to the same theme in her makeup with very settled and calm, yet feminine pink and purple shades.

For the night look, hemlines can get shorter and the makeup can get bolder! Rony wore a neon sheer blouse, high waisted black skirt, high heeled oxfords and accessorized with a purple clutch. For her night out look the makeup upgrades her outfit and gives it another party boost! The marine green palette of eye shadows not only compliments the color of her top but also Rony’s large brown eyes. Whether rocking out on the dance floor or having drinks at the coolest newest bar, Rony’s makeup is perfect for the chic nightowl.
