hey everyone!
Winter is upon us, it’s raining and cold and the air gets windy and dry. For some people the dry air does wonders for their skin but to the unfortunate like us, it makes our skin look red and dull and feel dry. We have tried all kinds of facial creams, from baby creams to high end brands, and unfortunately were unable to get lasting results. Last week we received a lovely little pink package from L’Oreal Paris, with their new ‘Skin Perfection’ facial cream.
The Cream
We were so excited that we tried it out on the same day. After a week of applying the cream, we must admit that we already notice great change in our skin. It feels that the skin is much tighter, smoother and softer.

The cream itself is not oily like other creams we’ve used and gets absorbed in the skin quite quickly so you can apply make up straight away without worrying that the make up will smear off. Also, the cream deals with those annoying little wrinkles and smoothens the skin. 
So, ladies and gents, if you’re looking for the perfect winter cream to indulge your skin in, we highly recommend trying the new ‘skin perfection’!
Love it!
Wishing you and warm and jolly winter season!

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.

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.

Long time no see darlings! It is so good to be back, and what better outfit to make a comeback in than retro, the style that keeps coming back?!

IMG_28112

We love feminine and ladylike fashions and the 50’s is one of our favorite fashion eras! High waisted, A-lined, midi length, all cuts that are super pretty and chic and very flattering too.

Rony wore a polka dotted crop top with a high waisted red midi skirt and blue peep toe heels.

IMG_28411 IMG_28451 IMG_27961 IMG_27981 IMG_28141 IMG_28151 IMG_28171 IMG_28182 IMG_28161 IMG_28191 IMG_28481 IMG_28491
We love mixing ladylike with more sexy edgy pieces. Rony’s crop top is the perfect mix of sweet and naughty!

IMG_28471

Vera wore a polka dotted A-lined mini dress with blue ballerina flats and a blue satchel.

IMG_28341 IMG_28321 IMG_28371 IMG_28381 IMG_28511 IMG_28021 IMG_28031 IMG_28221 IMG_28251 IMG_28271 IMG_28281 IMG_28291
Vera proves that wearing one color from head to toe can be refreshing and classy!

Hello blogging world, we’ve missed you! We pulled quite a disappearing act due to impossible schedules (which are tough to coordinate between the two of us), but we are back and so happy about it!

You all know how much we love to dress girly and sexy but at the same time we love to steal some styling ideas (and clothes) from our men. Wearing an oversized top, masculine cut jacket and a cool hat can make a very feminine look more accessible, casual and hip. We always feel more comfortable when we balance out our sexy pieces with more loose items. And remember, confidence is key to looking your best!

IMG_7712

For this post’s sexy staple items we both turned to Tmart, a cool website offering trendy and hip clothes, shoes, and accessories at amazing prices. For us this website is a very convenient one stop shop, as we hardly have time for shopping.

We picked out baroque printed miniskirts (find them here and here) which are flirty and fun and at the same time very comfortable! What more could a girl ask for?!

Vera wore her skirt with an oversized striped T-shirt, blue ballerina flats, and a checkered hat.

Rony wore her version with a denim button-down shirt, Perspex oversized necklace, high heeled sandals and a camouflage hat.

IMG_74971 IMG_75672

IMG_74771 IMG_74861 IMG_75312 IMG_75371 IMG_75381 IMG_75461

We accessorized with bright lip color.

We hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a wonderful week ahead!
