DIY Tutorial – Corset Belt

Latest on my Youtube Channel! This time I really wanted to make a corset belt- I’ve been seeing them everywhere. Here I used a faux leather fabric but you can use any fabric that you want, I think denim will be the next one I try to make because that looks really cool, too. You also really don’t need a sewing machine to do this. Even though I’m using one in the video you can definitely glue the seam down and sometimes you won’t even need to hem if you are going for a distressed look. To style the corset belt, you can wear it over an oversized tee as seen on the Kardashians and Kylie Jenner, but it also looks really good on a summer dress or anything flower print because its a nice contrast. Hope you loved this video and until next time!! xx Karen

Suburbs in Cali

shoes Zara // dress ASTR // hat Shein

I always thought the growing up in Sunnyvale, California that it was such a boring place and so un-stylish. I wished I lived in New York or Europe where the streets are cobblestone and the buildings were tall. But actually it was this visit that I realized that there is a real beauty to the openness and emptiness of the suburbs. Especially after following blogs like Always Judging and Peace Love Shea, I fell in love with the retro, California vibe photos that evoked such coolness. So anyway, I decided I was going to take advantage of what the suburbs had to offer and find some awesome spots to take photos. My first idea was to find an old car which wasn’t hard to do and these photos came out just what I imagined. The outfit matches in a light beige color palatte with the studded ballet flats as a contrast. Hope you love it! More photos from California to come 馃檪 xx Karen

Trip to Eilat

Last week I went on a family trip to Eilat. For those who don’t know, Eilat is the southern most city in Israel on the border with Egypt and it is known to be a vacation spot for beach goers and scuba divers. I haven’t been there since I was 19 in the army and I discovered how beautiful this city is! The gorgeous blue water with the backdrop of the red and orange mountains is just breathtaking. Would definitely recommend visiting there if you are ever in Israel! Hope you love the photos and until next time xx Karen

One-Item Jumpsuit

 

Jumpsuit – 1聽Item (click here)

Last week I ordered from an Israeli online store called 1聽Item. Their stuff聽is really fun and on trend so I picked out two jumpsuits – this one and another one you’ll be seeing on my Instagram later on. When I got the package I was so pleased with the what I saw inside, the clothes looked like great quality and a really great fit. I tried them on and absolutely loved both jumpsuits, you will see the second one soon. Jumpsuits are a great staple for summer to wear everyday or especially instead of a dress to an daytime or evening event. I styled this one more casually with some fishnets and lace-up boots from Pastelle Israel. Hope you loved the look! And don’t forget to visit the 1 Item website they do free shipping in Israel! Until next time, xx Karen

Last week here in Tel Aviv was the holiday Purim, our version of halloween where we dress up in costumes and go to parties (although there’s no trick or treating) I decided last minute that I wanted to dress up as Julia Roberts from pretty woman. I knew it would not be so hard for me to do because I had a sewing machine so I decided to document it for all of you. This version specifically is in Hebrew but I want to make a version in English and I will share it here for you as well. Hope you loved this tutorial and if you did decide to try this costume for yourself don’t forget to send me a photo!!

Ktima Thrinax Handmade Soap

(link for soaps)

I received these olive oil soaps straight from Greece last week and I am absolutely聽loving them.聽I’m always looking for products that are good for the skin with no chemicals or artificial substances that can be harmful. You never know these days what has an affect on our bodies with all the junk that is processed in products these days so its nice to find something that is all natural and good for you! The soaps come in a few different containers- first there are the regular hand and body soaps that come in two sizes- small round and large rectangular. The scents are all different which is so cool! There are smells like chamomile and rosemary, citrus mix, kiwi & poppyseed, and cornmint. Then they are two jars with a body butter and body wax. The wax is a more thick texture and is great for really dry areas like hands and elbows. There is also a large colorful fuzzy looking soap which is a felted castille soap and smells amazing!

You can find the soaps that Leo (the guy who makes to soaps) on Etsy. The link is here to my package you see above (click for link) and there are a variety of other packages and soaps that he sells there. If you are ordering for the first time- you also get free shipping which is great beacuse it gives you a chance to try out the soaps for less to see if you like them first. And its also a great way to support an independent product when it feels like everything lately is produced by corporations. Hope you liked this post and let me know what you think of the soaps if you try them! Until next time xx Karen

sweater Zara // boots Topshop // pants Missguided // bag Fendi

I got this faux leather leggings in the mail from Missguided over a month ago and I’ve been waiting to show them to you all on the blog. I styled them for a chilly day with snakeskin print boots from Topshop and an oversized comfy Zara sweater I got last year. When I wear tight leggings or skinny jeans I like to balance out the outfit with something more oversized on top to keep the outfit looking casual and effortless. I also tried to keep the color combination pretty neutral as these pants kind of make a statement on their own. Hope you loved this look! I will also post my everyday makeup routine here which is already up on Youtube so check that out, too! Until next time xx Karen

jacket Zara // joggers Shein // sneakers Vans // top Calvin Klein

This is my lazy day outfit when I still want to feel comfortable but look somewhat stylish. I’ve been really into the side striped pants and the velvet trend so these pants by Shein are the perfect combo. They’re a little short on my legs but I think for a girl shorter than me they would fit really perfectly. I finished off the sporty look with vans and a sweatshirt. I got the burgundy vans on the Free People website (yes, they ship to Israel but beware of the taxes if you order more than 70 dollars), and the CK sweatshirt at Urban Outfittters when I was in the states. I think if you throw on a leather jacket over any plain outfit it polishes it up a bit so thats what I did here. Hope you loved this look! Until next time xx Karen

I’ve been seeing the hoodie and jacket trend everywhere this winter. We first saw it last year on Kendall Jenner when she wore the infamous combo with the leather jacket and now I’ve seen it paired a lot with long coats which is also cool. Here in Tel Aviv the weather is getting pretty warm already so I opted for a lightweight bomber and miniskirt – yes its already almost miniskirt weather here! Winter, I will miss you. I also wore these limited edition converse sneakers which I’ve been obsessed with. I bought them because of Happily Grey, she was wearing them with all her outfits and they looked amazing. Stay tuned for a makeup tutorial coming soon to the blog. Until next time! xx Karen

I’ve been waiting to show you guys this faux fur jacket for so long! I absolutely love it- its the perfect amount of crop and brown and black, my favorite color combo:) I found it while surfing on the H&M American website and then ordered it to my parent’s house becauusse the Israeli H&M has yet to have online shopping. I think the only international brand to have online shopping here is Topshop and even that is super new. But I have hope for the future. Anyway, back to the most important part of the outfit, the DIY top! I made a video about this not long ago (linked below) and its super easy to make yourself so check it out! Hope you loved this casual every day outfit and until next time xx Karen
