GET THE LOOK: back to winter

Miami... What a gorgeous place to visit in the winter! It was warm, like beach warm.
But now it's back to the surprisingly sunny but still cold Tel Aviv. 

Anyways, here is a pretty accurate look at what is being worn over here. 

Oh, don't forget stockings... My favorites are made by GAP here

Yes. Everything really is on sale just now. Happy shopping. xx

HAUTE COUTURE: Chanel Spring 2015

Chanel Spring 2015 Haute Couture

It's been a while since I've posted a Chanel collection on the blog. Sadly I've been feeling less inspired by Karl's vision for the brand, as I'm too big a fan of the classic Chanel look of the eighties and nineties. I love the fantasy element that Karl gives us, but I wish I could look at the collection and see Chanel in it, instead of net fantasy. And then this collection comes around, as though Karl took serious note of what we've been recently criticizing.

The show was, very traditionally, held in Paris and the venue was transformed into a gorgeous, vibrant,tropical greenhouse filled with these huge, colorful oversized flowers blooming throughout the show. 
The looks were equally as vibrant and colorful as the venue, or perhaps, even more... This collection was filled with so much life, and almost an eerie happiness that comes with spending time in nature. There were some delightful frocks and skirts with silk flower appliqués, princess like tulle dresses with embroidery from head to toe, sparkles were spread out, and the classic tweed suits came in bright colors and had fringed ends. 

The wedding dress which closed the show featured a full length, and train of, handmade fabric flowers. This being one of the more wearable dresses I've ever seen from more recent Chanel couture collections, I love it. Also, notice instead of traditional flower girls, we have flower holding male models to escort the bride - this too, I love. xx

HAUTE COUTURE: Christian Dior Spring 2015

Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring 2015

From the very first look I already knew, there is something new, fresh for Dior this couture season.
Instead of giving us the New Look we're used to seeing at Dior, we here received something inspired by the same era, but so fresh. Raf has went into such a vibrant, fun time in fashion history and mixed it with his trademark casual yet futuristic touch.
I mean, shift dresses, psychedelic knits, and kinky boots at a Dior couture show! Oh happy days.  

The collection is obviously filled with sixties nostalgia. Almost an ode to Yves Saint Laurent's incredible "Beat" collection, which did in fact get Mr. YSL fired from Dior... But with Raf, times are new and the brand is open to it. 
The florals, sequins, lace, plastic details have all been done to perfection. Soft where it's really not meant to be, by the book. Highlights are the short, heavily embellished frocks complete with strategically placed cut-out details paired with over-the-knee patent leather boots... J'adore. 

Taking guesses on who'll be wearing what from this collection at the Oscars. 
Thoughts? xx

Kenzo Fall 2015 (Menswear)

Kenzo Fall 2015 Men's - visually so damn good (as expected), I just had to share. 

I got to follow this collection on Instagram - my first time primarily following a collection this way. It was a very easy going, interesting experience so big thanks to the editors covering it, especially.
 My first thought was 'wow, hello London-in-the-seventies-punk' which went to a place of fantasy, space odyssey. It was a bit random. Random with a great flow to it. Collection features strong outerwear, parkas, sweaters; a variety of colors spread out throughout. And as usual with Kenzo: superb styling. Perfection in layering, matching these pieces I don't think just anyone would think gos.The accessories, my favorite part of viewing the men's collections, because really, they are even more fun to shop. The heavy boots, with those oversized stitches... Coolest ever. Thoughts? xx

GET THE LOOK: Miami Beach

I'm in Miami! Finally! And yes, the weather is slightly cooler than the norm due to the harsh winter up north, but it's still good enough to walk down Ocean Drive in shorts and a tee. 
Shorts and a tee though - it's so easy to look sloppy like this, I mean, it can happen without you even trying! It's sunny, and you're on the beach. A tiny bit of sweat can actually ruin your look, which is why it's so important to choose the right tee, and the right short. Also remember this vital rule: no flip flops. 
For some this may sound funny, I know. But growing up in this weather makes you start seeing this as a challenge... excepted. 

Jess Hart does it so right  - here's how to get her look:
(just a reminder: first option is affordable VS. second option is designer/inspirational)
SHORTS: H&M Denim Shorts, $17.95 $10 / Blank Denim Shorts $88
SANDALS: Nine West Sandals, $49 $19.60 / Joie Sandals, $135
ACCESSORIES: J. Crew Sunglasses, $175 

Guys, please stay warm this winter. xx
