Daytime Wedding

I got invited to a cute daytime wedding in a public place - yes, above a theater, with curious civilians taking pictures and a bride in a mini.  I had this suit divided over two continents - the skirt in my Californian closet, the shirt - in my mom's closet in Israel. The wedding was a good chance to unite the two.

Suit - vintage
Shoes - Zara
Sunglasses - Erroca

There's something very exciting about a silky, matchy-matchy suit. A little bit first lady, a little preppy, but so luxurious - I made the skirt shorter, but the loose top is going to stay the same. A chunky golden necklace was my choice to "toughen things up" and the retro sunglasses, courtesy of Erroca Israel, added the California touch. Do yourself a favor and try a suit this summer - the put-together feeling is refreshing and, ironically, pretty adventurous. Discuss.

Retro Time

Fancy parties. I don't go for those mostly - give me a living room and some improvised speakers, and I'm good. But a website I write for, BeinIsrael, had one, and I went out of simple curiosity.

The dress code was "flowers" - I wore my vintage dress with flats and a snake skin bag. This armchair with the fluffy pillow worked into the retro look as I was photographed by a friend, Katya Shepelyavaya. I fall in and out of love with the vintage look, especially as my life takes interesting turns. Stay tuned.

It's Tel Aviv Fashion Week: Day 2

Life moved on, but I still want to show you what I wore for TVFW (a pretty cool abbreviation, if you ask me). The second day I featured two different looks, which entailed going home and changing. Dedication. That's all I have to say.

Jeans - Insight
Headpiece - H&M
Vintage shirt, bag and shoes

I got most of this pre-planned, pre-loved look at Captain's Helm, a really cool vintage store in Oceanside, an otherwise unremarkable (albeit cute) Californian town. My fashion critic and life partner surprised me with the bag, the rest - my own doing. two more words - wear those headbands. You'll get compliments.

Vintage dress and shoes
Bag - Banana Republic
Cuff - Ruby Star

And for the evening - this truly gorgeous dress I found and made much shorter. I love the golden trim and the "proper", closed cut. So Funky. And we're almost done.

It's Tel Aviv Fashion Week: Day 1

I know, I've been absent. Buy hey, given the fact I flew across the ocean to come home I deserve a break. I landed straight into the buzz of Tel Aviv Fashion Week, which is nothing like the NYFW. Nobody snobs me out here (they wouldn't dare!) and the general atmosphere is of lesser importance and more of a fashion celebration - this fashion week doesn't have a "season" to be ahead of, which can't put Israel on the international circuit, but the intentions are good and everyone is friendly and happy to dress up to the nines. This is what I wore for the opening night.

Skirt - custom made
Shirt - Forever21
Jacket - H&M with a vintage fur trim

I love the idea of a cropped top and a maxi skirt, especially with such a fine print. A lot of guests mixed up "fashion-forward" and "festive" and showed up in beaded, sparkly and floor-length numbers (one had a train, like at the Oscars, no less) but I don't like to overdo it. s hey say, "a fuchsia lipstick completed her look". I wore more cool stuff yesterday and the day before, so stay tuned and follow my Instagram for maximum updates!
