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!

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.

**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!

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.

“It’s the time of the season when the love runs high…”

We love this time of year, it’s starting to get warm and you can just feel the promise of the coming summer, the temperature is just right and the evenings get breezy and romantic!

The time is right for what we like to call cross-seasons pants. Every girl needs a pair of cotton pants she can wear all year long, ones that are stretchy and comfortable, that’ll keep your legs warm in winter but won’t stick to your skin in the summer. Besides, who wants to wear boring jeans when all our favorite brands are selling pants in all colors of the rainbow?!

Pants are THE staple item for the office, school, or just for running errands but are also fashionable and sexy for a night out!

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

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.

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

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!

We love being feminine, and being the girly girls we are, we can greatly appreciate a good skirt or dress.

However, there’s nothing sexier than a woman who can carry off a good pair of trousers, the more masculine the better.  Pants can be elegant and dressy in a very cool, non-obvious way.

What better way to display our pants than with an architectural, metropolitan backdrop?!

Unfortunately the strong wind knocked down my camera and we had no choice but to continue the photo shoot with our iPhones. But don’t despair! The fun continued as we played on the beautiful concrete sculptures.

Vera wore wide legged pants that with all the wind and volume looked like a very cool maxi skirt. She put together an edgy look with a striped top, gray vest, studded belt, ballerina flats, silver chain necklaces and a massive rhinestone ring.

I wore jockey-like balloon pants, one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing I own, with a button down shirt, high heeled oxfords, vintage Ray Bans, big rings, and peachy necklace and earrings.

While we did decide we wanted to post about some of our coolest trousers, we never agreed on color, and somehow we ended up coordinating our color palettes. What can we say, great minds think alike!
