Matching sets and suits have always been elegant and classy but have lately taken on a new role and became more interesting and unexpected. The modern woman’s suit is one that should be suited to the many activities of her day. A perfect set could be made up of matching patterns or prints, colors, or cuts.

Rony’s outfit is perfect for a full day of chic and can go from day to night.

Welcome to suburbia. Although we are city girls at heart there’s something nice about waking up to a white picket fence and lots of green.

Hello loves!

We absolutely love vintage. As far as we’re concerned, the more antique the better! We especially love romantic lace that makes you feel like a starlet from a different era. Lace has always been such an important part of fashion – from outerwear to knickers it is the ultimate symbol of femininity and grace. Worn with a certain jacket or shoe, lace can become a bit gothic or more soft and romantic.

While vintage and retro are beautiful, overdoing the style can get a bit.. well, granny-ish. To make our vintage pieces more current we spiked our outfits with a bit of punkish modern attitude. Here are the results:

Modern vintage outfits Modern vintage outfitsRony wore a Chanel-esque vintage crochet pullover and a black lace chiffon blouse.

Rony modernized the look with a black studded mini skirt, greenish gray tights, studded cuffs and Victorian peep-toe booties.

What better location to photograph these outfits than at one of Tel Aviv’s most beautiful old buildings, the Beit Heseg building, located on one of Tel Aviv’s most beautiful streets, Rothschild Boulevard.

IMG_68991 IMG_69011 IMG_69052 IMG_68891 IMG_68941

This building was originally planned and built in 1924 by prominent Israeli architect Yehuda Megidovitch, is under preservation and has undergone restoration by important Tel Aviv architects such as Yaski architects. We just love the way this eclectic building blends with its modern surroundings!

Hello fashion darlings!

Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, and many other huge designers all sent their models down the runway in black and white and proved once again that classy is never boring.

Black and white patterned pieces were huge this season, and continue to rule the fashion forecast as spring approaches; the infinite colors of elegance are back in a new way!

Black and White outfits

This trend leaves so much room for mixing and matching and twisting! From Vera’s cape to Rony’s necklace, to Rony’s T-Shirt tunic, to Vera’s purse to Rony’s quilt bag, we were definitely texture happy!

Black and White outfitsVera wore a color blocked black and white frock with an oversized vintage black and white African-patterned cape, pleather leggings, gray pumps, gold chain necklace and a black and gold checkered purse.

Vera’s purse, whose print is reminiscent of 20’s glamour, somehow goes perfectly with her more ethnic inspired cape; the prints complement each other and the different textures give a new twist to the outfit.

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.

Last weekend we threw a fashion fundraiser which featured a vintage sale, music, bubbly, and lots of beautiful people!

Fashion fundraiser at re:LoftAs you all know as the seasons change so does our wardrobe; all the summer clothes get replaced by winter clothing and vice versa, which is a great opportunity to get rid of all those clothes you don’t wear anymore.

The initial idea behind the event was a closet cleanout: we all have clothes that just sit there in our closets and collect dust and that, no matter how much we try to convince ourselves otherwise, we will never wear again. We encouraged some of the best dressed fashionistas, bloggers and boutiques to get rid of all that clutter and donate it to our event.

Clothing donations

Besides demonstrating bold acts of recycling both by those who donated and by those who bought secondhand, all proceeds from the event were donated to an organization supporting children living in southern Israel, who have been subjected to acts of terrorism and who are emotionally and physically scarred.

Everyone pitched in and donated! Fashion bloggers, shops and boutiques, our families and friends, fashionistas, and other people just looking to do good. The amount of clothes we received was unbelievable, as was the support and positive feedback! The event was a great success, in attendance were women of all ages and sizes looking to find treasures for their wardrobe and at the same time offer their support for the future of our children.

In accordance with the theme of recycling for a better future, the event was held at re:Loft, an art and design loft studio which deals with recycling in art and design. The owner of the loft, Danielle Dafni, is a multitalent: video editor by profession, as well as an artist, designer and event planner.

Danielle’s loft was the perfect backdrop to the eclectic mix of items in the sale; its spacious terrace offers panoramic views of Tel Aviv and it is filled with amazing furniture, some designed by herself and her father, others by world renowned designers such as Ron Arad and Charles and Ray Eams. The beautiful art was painted by Danielle herself.

Hey there fashion people!

From Prada to Victoria Beckham, color blocks are big in all the hottest collections this season. For this edition of What We Wear we did color blocking the way we do best: chic, stylish, and casual yet cool.

We’re sure that each one of you has a statement making bright colored item that you just don’t know how to wear and with what. Here’s an unexpected suggestion, wear it with another bright colored statement making item to make your outfit truly stand out!

Vera wore a hippy maxi purple skirt, turquoise collar top, studded belt, a worker’s black vest and checkered Converses.

Combining the romantic skirt and feminine top with a sporty look made Vera’s outfit edgy and unique.

I wore a bright colored striped plise skirt with a lacy vintage top, velvet plum jacket, men’s grosgrain belt, color block bag and color block strappy sandals.

Mixing different colors and textures kept my outfit unique and unexpected, and putting them together with pulled back hair and calmer accessories kept the outfit from getting too crazy.

While it seems that layering should be saved for the in between seasons, it’s actually important for summer as well. Going from hot humid days outside to air conditioning inside and cool evenings, it’s important to dress practical. Pieces such as vests and light short sleeved jackets are perfect for outfits that last from day till night.

Wearing too much of a certain style or trend can make the outfit look too costumey; a great way of keeping it interesting and cool is mixing different styles and textures. Vera for example mixed her ultra feminine top and flowy hippy skirt with a super masculine, bodyguard-like vest.

To keep from going too “pop star”, I mixed my bright 80’s colored skirt with a romantic vintage top and a men’s belt.

Conclusion is, don’t be afraid of mixing styles, everything goes as long as you act your fabulous self and wear your style with confidence!

Until next time!
