Now that we are fully addicted to the wonderful world of online shopping, we wanted to share with you an online store we particularly love: (Shop at your own discretion, you might get obsessed!!) Gusta.

We don’t know about winter where you are but in Israel the weather gets pretty fickle, sometimes very cold and rainy and sometimes sunny; temperatures can change drastically, especially when going from indoors to outdoors. For all these reasons, layering is a must, with certain basic staple items that can go from day to evening, from the office to the gym.

We recently discovered Gusta’s basic tanks, %100 organic cotton, with the kind of fabric and slouchy cut that make your body feel really good. Needless to say they are now a must in our closets.

IMG_3055

Here are some ideas on how to make your favorite tank a basic part of every outfit:

Day to Day:

IMG_31091 IMG_31141 IMG_31171 IMG_31181
Layer a loose tank over a shirt dress for a look that is classy yet effortless. Sheer tights and booties with a bit of heel add an extra flair of girliness. Knit hats are the perfect cold weather accessory!

Office:

IMG_31241 IMG_31281 IMG_31301

Wearing a classic cut tank tucked into a pencil skirt with a tailored jacket makes for a chic and classy office look that is still comfortable and not too dressy.

Gym:

IMG_31441 IMG_31411 IMG_31031
Sweating it out at the gym is the best way of getting rid of the day’s stress, but that does not mean we can’t look fabulous! While comfort is top priority, we like to make our workout look more interesting by adding bold colors.

Evening:

IMG_31331 IMG_31351 IMG_31381 IMG_31371
Tucking your tank top into skinny pants with an edgy jacket makes for a cool and sexy evening look. Maroon is always in style in the cold seasons, wear it on your lips, in your clothes and in your underwear! Want to know where we got these pants? Find out here!

One of the great perks of ordering from Gusta’s online store is that the clothes arrive in a fabulous fabric tote with a graphic design we loved!

Remember the online shopping event we told you about? Well we decided to really take advantage of the event and stock up on some must haves for our winter wardrobes.

IMG_81801

Here are some of the items we got.
Skinny stretch jeans from 1item in maroon and in flower print. These are comfortable and practical and can go from office to evening.

IMG_30421

Patterned sweater from 1item, flower appliqué crepe skirt and leather bag from Niti Chic Boutique. We were in love with this skirt the moment we saw it, it is so romantic and versatile and really flattering! This is the perfect skirt for all seasons. A practical black bag is a must.

IMG_30431 IMG_30441

Because we have every intention of wearing short dresses and skirts throughout winter, tights are a must. Tights don’t have to be worn just for practical reasons, we like to play with patterns and colors, and find that sheer tights (with lower denier numbers) are a very sexy addition to the outfit. We picked out these fun patterned tights.

IMG_81811 IMG_30531

In colder months the cold weather leaves our skin dry and chipped and e find that we have to take extra good care of our skin. While we try to moisturize more, a good facial cleanser is a must. We got Vichy’s purete thermale cleanser from the fabulous Medi Link online pharmacy; it leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh without drying it.

IMG_30491

We just had to accessorize our iPhone with this fabulous Marylin Monroe phone cover from 1item!

IMG_30511

We weren’t the only ones who got to enjoy this shopping experience, little Ms. Watts scored this adorable striped sweater from Castro. Cute and cozy!

Winter is slowly creeping in on us and any change in seasons is the perfect excuse to renew our wardrobes. Being the super busy ladies we are, juggling families, full time jobs and our blog, online shopping is the ultimate shopping experience for us. This is why we were thrilled to find out about Shopping IL, an exciting online shopping extravaganza hosted by Google Israel, taking place on November 11-12.

Long time no see darlings! It is so good to be back, and what better outfit to make a comeback in than retro, the style that keeps coming back?!

IMG_28112

We love feminine and ladylike fashions and the 50’s is one of our favorite fashion eras! High waisted, A-lined, midi length, all cuts that are super pretty and chic and very flattering too.

Rony wore a polka dotted crop top with a high waisted red midi skirt and blue peep toe heels.

IMG_28411 IMG_28451 IMG_27961 IMG_27981 IMG_28141 IMG_28151 IMG_28171 IMG_28182 IMG_28161 IMG_28191 IMG_28481 IMG_28491
We love mixing ladylike with more sexy edgy pieces. Rony’s crop top is the perfect mix of sweet and naughty!

IMG_28471

Vera wore a polka dotted A-lined mini dress with blue ballerina flats and a blue satchel.

IMG_28341 IMG_28321 IMG_28371 IMG_28381 IMG_28511 IMG_28021 IMG_28031 IMG_28221 IMG_28251 IMG_28271 IMG_28281 IMG_28291
Vera proves that wearing one color from head to toe can be refreshing and classy!

Hello blogging world, we’ve missed you! We pulled quite a disappearing act due to impossible schedules (which are tough to coordinate between the two of us), but we are back and so happy about it!

You all know how much we love to dress girly and sexy but at the same time we love to steal some styling ideas (and clothes) from our men. Wearing an oversized top, masculine cut jacket and a cool hat can make a very feminine look more accessible, casual and hip. We always feel more comfortable when we balance out our sexy pieces with more loose items. And remember, confidence is key to looking your best!

IMG_7712

For this post’s sexy staple items we both turned to Tmart, a cool website offering trendy and hip clothes, shoes, and accessories at amazing prices. For us this website is a very convenient one stop shop, as we hardly have time for shopping.

We picked out baroque printed miniskirts (find them here and here) which are flirty and fun and at the same time very comfortable! What more could a girl ask for?!

Vera wore her skirt with an oversized striped T-shirt, blue ballerina flats, and a checkered hat.

Rony wore her version with a denim button-down shirt, Perspex oversized necklace, high heeled sandals and a camouflage hat.

IMG_74771 IMG_74861 IMG_75312 IMG_75371 IMG_75381 IMG_75461

We accessorized with bright lip color.

We hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a wonderful week ahead!

Picasso said that “The purpose of Art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”.
We couldn’t agree more; we can get so caught up in our day to day lives that we sometimes need to get away from it all and find art to be a perfect form of escape. Art allows our minds and imaginations to wonder and go wild. It gives us inspiration and new ideas.

IMG_7603

Last weekend we visited It is and it isn’t, an exhibit by American artist Nick Kuszyk at Saga, a modern art gallery in Jaffa. Kuszyk, aka RRobots, became well known for his colorful robot-themed street art which has now become a gorgeous part of New York City’s urban landscape.

IMG_7589

While we loved Kuszyk’s robots and other adorable creatures, we were really taken with the geometric and architectural turn his art has taken.

IMG_7591 IMG_7601 IMG_7586 IMG_7597

We loved the colors the artist uses in his work and how the graphic qualities made the paintings look three dimensional.

IMG_7571 IMG_7577 IMG_7600

All this was especially beautiful and powerful when set against the gallery’s heavy exposed concrete architectural style.

We’d love to see your favorite artists and styles, share them on our facebook page!

As Aerosmith sings, “Pink it’s my new obsession”. Well we’ve actually been obsessed with pink for as long as we can remember; since we were babies our mothers have been dressing us in the color of all things girly, and it has followed us into our adult lives.

IMG_7395

We decided to go full on Legally Blonde style on this one and indulge in all Pink everything!

IMG_24831

Vera wore a knit cardigan over a one shoulder frilly dress with canvas flats and layered silver jewelry.

IMG_25111 IMG_24991 IMG_25041 IMG_25062IMG_25081 IMG_25171

Rony wore a patterned knit cardigan over a cowl neck dress with patent high heeled pumps and an oversized stones necklace.

IMG_24781 IMG_25201 IMG_25282 IMG_25292 IMG_25322

We like to have a good cardigan wherever we go in this transitional weather.

IMG_24852

Mix things up by adding another bright color nail polish, like Rony’s light blue.

The big question on everyone’s lips is how to look fashionable and trendy at the office while staying office-appropriate.
We put together some of our favorite office-cool outfits with our must-have staple item: A patterned button-down.

IMG_27072

Rony wore a patterned button-down shirt with a tweed skirt, green patent bag, red patent mary janes, and a multicolored statement necklace.

IMG_27411 IMG_27451 IMG_27531
The secret to successfully mixing prints is all about the colors: Mix prints with similar shades of a certain color or with complimentary colors. This will allow the prints to go well together and not clash.

IMG_27541

Vera wore a sheer snakeskin print button down shirt over a tank top with a high waisted skater skirt, thin studded belt, patent leather moccasins, patent leather bag, and sheer tights.

IMG_27631 IMG_27661 IMG_27701

If you wear a sheer top to the office make sure to wear it with a top underneath; you want people to be talking to your face, not your bra.

IMG_27721

The bold print of Vera’s top is best worn with classy solid pieces on the bottom so as not to look too flashy.

The accessories are where you can get really creative, mix colors and add bold pieces.

IMG_27571 IMG_27751

Our suggestion is to wear comfortable shoes and not go crazy with the heels; you don’t want to be limping by the end of the work day!

IMG_27821 IMG_27801

More cool office appropriate styles here and here.
