In the fickle world of fashion, where trends are constantly changing, we are being told to “keep up” and wear the latest whims of the fashion forecasters and designers. We personally pick and choose which trends we embrace and which ones we ignore. Every once in a while there comes a trend that is so “us” that we don’t want it to ever go out of style! The midi skirt is one of those trends. This mid-length (hence midi) skirt cut is feminine and classy, reminiscent of our favorite Old Hollywood starlets, and is also extremely flattering on almost all shapes and sizes!

Here’s how we styled our midis:

IMG_21651

Vera wore a vintage lace overlay pink midi skirt with a striped top, asymmetrical cut blazer, kitten heels, gold necklace and a vintage tote.

IMG_22771
Vera offset the retro feminine vibe of the skirt with the ultra modern and cool blazer.

IMG_22731 IMG_22801 IMG_22821 IMG_22861 IMG_22881The vintage tote perfectly complimented Vera’s feminine outfit.

Rony wore an asymmetrical pleated midi skirt with a keyhole blouse, stone studded peep toe heels, head band, and piled on the colorful jewelry.

IMG_22613

The great thing about wearing a predominantly white outfit is that it makes a great blank canvas for piles of fabulous accessories.

These outfits have a “city girls Blair and Serena go to the Hamptons” look. That’s Gossip Girl, for those of you who aren’t as obsessed with the show’s styling as we are! The skirts are perfect for the office but also perfect for leisure.

The most fun thing about these skirts? they’ll make you feel like breaking out into dance in the middle of the street! So go ahead, do a little twirl!

The flowers are starting to bloom, the sun is coming out to play, spring is coming!! This transition period between winter and spring can be tricky to style because it’s still chilly, especially in the evenings, there are high chances of rain, yet the days get gradually warmer.
Our favorite items to rock during this transition weather are light coats, preferably in our favorite colors and patterns that will be relevant this coming spring season.

IMG_18433 IMG_18421

Rony wore a peach trench coat over a cream playsuit, gray tights, loafer wedges and a gold necklace.

IMG_18671 IMG_18681 IMG_18641 IMG_18601 IMG_19061 IMG_19091 IMG_19111 IMG_19181

Vera wore an ethnic print trench coat over a black puffy skirt, striped top, studded loafers and gold necklace.

The fabulous thing about these coats is that they can be a chic cover up both for day and for evening.

Being the busy, hard working girls we are, we appreciate every second of leisure that we get. Weekends are almost a holy practice to us; we like to take advantage of our weekends by spending time with our loved ones, stocking up on inspiration in museums and exhibits and in the theater, and traveling in Israel and abroad.
As you know, we don’t like to ever compromise our style, but that doesn’t mean we have to compromise our comfort. So what does weekend wear mean for us, you ask?

IMG_17243

Vera wore a flannel shirt with a high waisted peach puffy skirt, knit cardigan, patterned tights, cowboy boots, and ray ban glasses.

IMG_18301 IMG_18321 IMG_18341 IMG_18351 IMG_18241 IMG_17612 IMG_17561 IMG_17621 IMG_17641 IMG_17701 IMG_17731

IMG_17481 IMG_17721

What’s better weekend wear than flannel? make it more stylish by mixing colors and put it together with more feminine pieces, like Vera’s puffy skirt.

IMG_18331

Rony wore a burgundy sweater over a green dress with a patterned scarf, patterned tights, knee-high boots, and a men’s fedora.

IMG_18171 IMG_18192

IMG_17791 IMG_17781 IMG_17841 IMG_17851

No one said that travel wear has to be boring, make it interesting by mixing vibrant colors and patterns in your clothes and accessories.

IMG_17222

Every outfit has a story: The flannel shirt Vera is wearing is actually a men’s shirt. Vera got her boots on sale in Eilat, a tourist favorite.

IMG_17911

Rony’s tights are from a cool boutique in Jaffa’s flea market, one of our favorite weekend destinations. Her hat is a traditional fedora she got in Ecuador.

IMG_18051

Layering is always a great tip for travel, the layers allow you to be prepared for any weather and any activity.

IMG_17321

The most important item, however, are the shoes. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes so that you can really enjoy your weekend excursions.

Traveling in Israel? Here are some of our favorite destinations and travel recommendations:
Beautiful Rosh Hanikra, Acre, Alexander River, Golan Heights, Ramon Crater in the desert.

If you’re exploring Tel Aviv, here are some must-visit destinations:
White City sculpture garden seen here and here, Tel Aviv Museum of Art (also seen here), Florentine neighborhood for its beautiful street art, Lev Hair Quarter and Chelouche Gallery for beautiful architecture and contemporary art, Litvak Gallery for unique glass art and installations by international artists, Holon Design Museum seen here and here (about 20 minutes outside the city and definitely worth a visit), and of course the beautiful Mediterranean shore.

If you’re here before June 2014, check out this must see street art exhibit. If it’s shopping you’re after, check out Kikar Hamedina.

Have a wonderful rest of the week everyone!

Now that Vera is a mommy (what a MILF), we’ve been getting very nostalgic about our childhoods and how our mothers used to be, and how they used to dress. We love digging up old photos of our mothers and seeing how glamorous and stylish they were, and still are today.

Since we were born in the eighties, we decided to do a post inspired by eighties fashion, and how it can be relevant today.

IMG_16392

IMG_16412

Rony wore a vintage velvet and leather top with pleather leggings, peep toe wedges, a turban, and piled on the jewelry.

IMG_15882

IMG_16151

IMG_16421 IMG_16481 IMG_16501 IMG_16811 IMG_16831 IMG_16841 IMG_16861

Rony’s look is very bold and fierce so to keep it from looking too over the top she added some oriental inspired touches, like the turban and the hand-made coral bracelet she got in Thailand.

IMG_16921 IMG_16941 IMG_16951

IMG_17151

Good styling is all about proportions. The big broad shoulders and masculine cut of Rony’s top goes best with a skinny proportion on the bottom. Adding a waist cinching belt gives the top a feminine, sexy touch.

IMG_16962

Vera wore a colorful print sweater, patterned hip hugging skirt, patterned tights, leather moccasins, and oversized earrings.

IMG_16712IMG_16741 IMG_16751 IMG_16761IMG_16791

Next time, instead of wearing plain black tights mix it up with patterned ones to make the outfit more bold, interesting, and fun.

IMG_17091 IMG_17061 IMG_17081 IMG_17121

In case you hadn’t noticed, Vera’s post baby makeover included a fabulous new haircut, which actually suited our 80’s theme perfectly!

IMG_17031

Our outfits included items that we so happily inherited from our mothers’ wardrobes: Vera’s statement earrings and Rony’s bold top.

Capes were all the rage in the fall collections, and for good reason; what’s more fun than feeling like storybook heroines while braving the rain and the cold?!

We decided to give capes a go in one of our favorite colors – Red. Red is a very powerful, feminine, eye-catching color; exactly the kind of mood lifting color we need for those dreary cold winter days!

IMG_06601

IMG_06612

Rony wore a hooded Urban Outfitters cape with an Asos faux fur stole.

IMG_08282

Under the cozy coverup she wore a button down feather print blouse, print skirt, rhinestones necklace, earrings, rings and cuff, and Steve Madden velvet peep toe wedges.

IMG_08351 IMG_08371 IMG_08411

IMG_08661

Rony’s faux fur and piles of accessories made this outfit lavish and fit to impress.

IMG_06902 IMG_06992 IMG_07151 IMG_07251 IMG_07331 IMG_07501 IMG_08091 IMG_08181 IMG_08221

Vera wore a knit turtleneck cape.

IMG_08461

Under her cozy coverup she wore an asymmetrical top, velvet leggings, blush red flats and a gold geometric necklace.

IMG_08551 IMG_08561 IMG_08582 IMG_08641

The great thing about Vera’s cape is its versatility: it can be worn as a cape or a scarf and create different looks.

IMG_06671 IMG_06711 IMG_06782 IMG_06811 IMG_07621 IMG_07731 IMG_07851 IMG_08001 IMG_07981

Velvet is coming back in a big way this season. We suggest wearing little touches of velvet here and there for a cool wintery effect.

IMG_08611

One of our fun joys in life is makeup. We love playing around with it as much as we love playing with our outfits. Being the busy girls we are, our makeup routine is usually very basic. We recently received a wonderful gift: the book Makeup is Art by the Academy of Freelance Makeup, a book filled with amazing ideas and inspirations. We decided to take this opportunity and really get inspired and explore looks we don’t usually wear.

IMG_6448

Vera went for earthly tones of brown, gold and light pink. These are the perfect makeup colors for fall and they beautifully compliment her red cape.

IMG_08701

IMG_08522

Rony decided to mix colors and went for turquoise and antique pink on her eyes and bright pink on her lips. These colors bring out Rony’s brown eyes and give her outfit an edgy flair.

IMG_08731

IMG_08321

Along with the fabulous book, we also received a massive package of Joy treats (oh the perks of being fashion bloggers). Joy treats are a new product launched and manufactured by Strauss Group, an international food and beverage company based in Israel.

IMG_6447

The idea behind “Joy” is to give consumers just that – a big joy they can enjoy for breakfast, on their break at work, or when they get home from a busy and exhausting day. The treats come in awesome flavors (our favorite is the chocolate with coconut bits) which include fruit chunks and chocolate sprinkles and other delicacies.

Strauss also launched a Joy %0 fat treat so we can enjoy all that chocolaty taste without feeling guilty.

IMG_10291What we like to enJOY when we get home: Fashion magazines and Joy treats!

IMG_10331Besides fashion, sweets are definitely some of our greatest joys in life, especially when they come packaged in such pretty fall colors! Yes, we see fashion in everything!

More tips for makeup that can transition from day to evening here and here.

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.

IMG_6199

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.

IMG_88551

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_88623 IMG_87541 IMG_87581 IMG_87591 IMG_87602 IMG_88051 IMG_88083 IMG_88322 IMG_88333 IMG_88373 IMG_88383 IMG_88403

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.

Hello fellow busy fashionistas of the world!

Our favorite kind of fashion consists of clothes that are not only chic but also comfortable and wearable; Clothes that are flattering without having to skip a meal and practical throughout a busy day. We introduce the item of the season: The slouchy trousers!

IMG_6097

These pants meet all the aforementioned categories and also come in gorgeous prints you can mix and match for a unique look. These are great pants to transition into fall season with: Practical and breathable.

Vera wore colorful flower print trousers with a white T-Shirt, studded moccasins, piled silver necklaces and geometric drop earrings.

IMG_87022IMG_87171 IMG_87141 IMG_87122
**Styling Tip** Casual Fridays at the office are a great opportunity to wear your favorite comfortable T-Shirts and flats!

IMG_87181 IMG_87062

IMG_85521 IMG_85591IMG_85971 IMG_85981 IMG_86002IMG_86061 IMG_86532IMG_86662 IMG_86682 IMG_86721 IMG_86742 IMG_86761

Rony wore black and white print trousers, embroidered peplum top, multicolored satchel, peach slingbacks, and a rope and beads necklace.

IMG_86842 IMG_86961 IMG_86971
**Styling Tip** Just because you’re stuck in an office all day doesn’t mean your outfit should be boring. Another way of spicing things up is with your nail polish! Rony chose attention-grabbing bright blue!

IMG_86951 IMG_86931 IMG_87231 IMG_86863

IMG_84972 IMG_84981 IMG_85001 IMG_85141 IMG_85252

IMG_85912

IMG_86082 IMG_86251 IMG_86271 IMG_86281 IMG_86401

Since these trousers are loose and oversized, we recommend wearing something more form fitting on top, for a slim look.

Startup Nation
Israel is known worldwide for its success in high-tech development and business. The country is ranked 3rd in the region and 38th worldwide on the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index, as well as in the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report. It has the second-largest number of startup companies in the world (after the United States) and the largest number of NASDAQ-listed companies outside North America. That’s quite impressive for a country with a population of 8 million!

The Israeli economy was ranked as the world’s most durable economy in the face of crises, and was also ranked first in the rate of research and development center investments. Israel is well known for its innovation and development of cutting-edge technologies. For example, it is a leading country in the development of solar energy and water conservation. Some Israeli startups invented products that billions worldwide can’t live without. Case in point: Waze, the GPS application that has become a household name.

What this means for local architects like us is that more and more office towers are getting built to house all those creative minds. Innovation is apparent in the architecture as well: modern high-technology designed, ecological buildings are being built all over the city.
