Happy Valentine’s Day to our loved ones around the world!

We love celebrating love, and every celebration for us is a great excuse to experiment with our style. This year we decided to focus on the color Red, as it is the ultimate color of romance and passion. Here are some of our tips for a red hot Valentine’s outfit.

When looking for a dress for a big occasion the first thing we look for is the right cut. The most important thing about a party dress is that it suits your figure and that you feel your best in it. If you’re not sure what cut suits you the best, go for a shape that flaunts the best parts of your body, what you are most confident about. Rony has a very feminine figure and a small waist so she went for the princess cut- This cut keeps everything cinched in and put together while flaunting Rony’s figure.

We like to dress understatedly sexy, there’s a fine line between seductress and trash. Rony decided to show a bit of skin in the back and kept the rest of the dress covered, yet form fitting.

Choosing the right fabric is as important as the cut of the dress.

Accessorizing : Rony’s dress was so attention grabbing, she decided to keep the rest of her outfit solid and classy. She wore drop rhinestones earrings that complimented the retro style of the dress, sheer black tights and black nail polish, and black high heeled pumps.

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!

Happy Monday loves!

This past weekend we visited a beautiful and inspiring fashion exhibit and had to share some photos and thoughts with you!

IMG_29732 IMG_29271

The exhibit took place at the Holon Design Museum, you may recognize the name from previous exhibits we visited, such as Stephen Jones’ fabulous hats exhibit, or Yohji Yamamoto’s amazing exhibit.IMG_29281 IMG_29301 IMG_29371 IMG_29691

Every item on display was crafted out of recycled plastic bottles. The designer said the exhibit addresses relevant social and cultural issues – “The 21st century is a time of uncertainty in terms of population overgrowth and a depletion of resources. While fashion and trends are temporary, designers must think of the long run.” Miyake’s way of deleopment and innovation is producing clothes that will have long term usage.

IMG_29411 IMG_29451 IMG_29501 IMG_29511
Miyake’s designs were inspired by and crafted with techniques taken from Origami, an ancient craft from his native Japan.

IMG_29631 IMG_29621 IMG_29601 IMG_29331 IMG_29351
Rony wore a print kaftan dress with orange ankle boots and a leather satchel.

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.

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!

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

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.

We’ve been nominated for blogging awards before and never really did anything to participate (don’t hate us!), but this time we were nominated by a blogger we particularly love, the adorable and fabulous Vivian of atouchofvivian, and we just couldn’t resist.

100_33262

Here are Vivian’s questions for us:
When and why did you start blogging?

We started blogging in february 2012, in our senior year of university, after having shared design and fashion ideas with each other for so many years.
We both had so many ideas we wanted to express and share with the world and decided to do that together.

What do you love most about blogging?

We love getting fashion inspiration from interesting people around the world and the amazing feedback we get from our awesome readers! There’s nothing better after all the hard work we put into making our blog interesting.

What’s the story behind the name of your blog?

We were inseparable in university and everyone always used to make fun of us for wearing matching outfits. The funniest thing about it though, was that we did it unintentionally! We just have style telepathy and therefore decided to name our blog “what we wear”.
The url whatwewear was already taken so we had to settle for “Watt”, which is Vera’s last name. So clever, we know 😉

What type of camera do you use for your blog?

We use a Canon Powershot SX 40 HS, which is a good quality camera and certainly good enough for us. We also use a professional tripod so we rarely use photographers. The tripod is like the third lady on our blog, it’s present at all our photo shoots; although we sometimes look a bit silly posing with the timer 🙂

Where do you find inspiration for your blog posts?

Inspiration is everywhere, in fashion magazines, in movies, in shops, but mostly we are inspired by street styles and by other bloggers.

Who is your fashion inspiration?

We can’t say that we have a single fashion inspiration because we love to combine different looks rather than stick to one style. Some very fashionable women whose styles we love are Olivia Palermo, Anna Dello Russo, Miroslava Duma, and Solange Knowles.

What is your fashion statement?

Dare to wear!

What is your current fashion obsession?

Our current fashion obsession is midi skirts, they are so feminine and ladylike and we love that they are making such a huge comeback. In fact, they’ll be featured on our next post!

What are three things you can’t live without?

Fashionably speaking, mascara, a hot pair of heels and chic dresses. Practically speaking, our families and loved ones are the only thing we absolutely cannot live without.

What is your biggest fashion regret?

We don’t believe in fashion regrets! If you think something is wearable then go for it!

Where do you see the future of your blog going?

Hopefully expanding, working with more designers. We’d love to showcase more of our favorite local talents, as well as work with designers from around the world. And who knows, maybe one day we’ll have our own column in a fabulous fashion magazine!

As per the rules of the blogging awards, we are supposed to nominate 11 other bloggers. We thought it wouldn’t be fair to play a popularity contest and chose only 11 bloggers, especially because there are hundreds who we love and feel inspired by! So we nominate all of you wonderful readers and wish you lots of success and fun on all your blogs!

Thanks again for all your love and support, and thank you Vivian for actually getting us to participate in this 🙂
