Dress – Alice’s Pig  

I am completely in LOVE with this dress from Alice’s Pig. It fits so perfectly and is made so well I want to wear it every day:) Because it has a more bohemian feel with the sunflower print and off the shoulder cut I wanted to change it up and pair it with more edgy retro patent leather boots. A vintage bag to match and I am good to go. What do you think of the outfit? Hope you love it :) Until next time xx Karen

Striped Blouse – Zaful 

I like to switch it up from the plain t-shirts and tanks to a button up blouse every once and a while, it looks much more polished and put together. This blouse is from Zaful (link here) I like their stuff because they are really on trend but still affordable. Hope you liked this look!

DIY Choker Tutorial

 

My latest YouTube video is a DIY tutorial for chokers! The reason I have two links is because I did one in Hebrew and one in English :) This was the first video that I really shot and edited myself. It took me so long! I didn’t realize how hard it was to edit a video in iMovie I really feel like I went to YouTube university in the past few weeks. lol. Here I show you how to make 3 chokers on your own. They are super easy to make and very fun to wear with all different outfits from day to night. I especially love the tie-neck choker because its flirty and playful. Hope you like the videos and there will be much more DIY coming your way so stay tuned.

Cleopatra Inspired Fashion

Looking back in history, there have been numerous women who have influenced our fashion sense and beauty routines, making us wish that we had the style and the poise of these icons. From high profile queens to Hollywood movie actresses, both their beauty and accomplishments have stood the test of time, but the one that we’ll be taking a closer look at is the lovely Cleopatra.

The ruler of the Ancient Egyptians is best known for her graphic lines of kohl, but she isn’t only celebrated for arguably starting the cat eye makeup trend. A figure for beauty and fashion as well as a popular theme for games and television shows, Cleopatra still inspires us in many areas of life, even to this day. Beauty addicts know her for her beauty secrets that utilize natural ingredients, but fashionistas will always admire her for her style, which transcends the ages.

The greatest part of Cleopatra’s style is its accessibility, and that with some simple adjustments to our daily uniform; we could feel like royalty, too. Taking some inspiration from the queen herself, here are a few fashion tips that you can easily incorporate into your own personal style:

Bright Colours
Back in the day, Cleopatra often referred to herself as the reincarnation of Isis, wearing similar colours that were associated with the goddess of fertility. Red, yellow and white were part of the queen’s wardrobe, hues that already exist in many of our closets, as white dresses are considered to be clothing staples. Red and yellow may be too bright for some people, so if you’re intimidated by garments in these specific colours, try them on in accents, like in shoes, belts and such.

Bold Accessories
Cleopatra was never one to shy away from big necklaces and headdresses. Although these days it is considered over-the-top to pair the statement pieces together, try experimenting with one statement piece and matching it with subtle jewellery. The singular statement piece can also work on its own.

Mix and Match
Cleopatra was a woman of originality, incorporating elements from seductive Egyptian fashion into modest Greek wear to set herself apart from both groups. Today, designers often mix cultures through their clothing ranges, which is what we also do when putting together an outfit in the morning. She was brave in breaking fashion traditions, and the truth is, we can all learn a lesson or two from the Queen of the Nile and do more unconventional mixing and matching, like she did.

Wearing a see through dress can be pretty risky depending on what the occasion is but I have been seeing them absolutely everywhere lately. It also depends on the style of the dress, the longer and higher cut they are, the better. This one is from an stunning Israeli designer named Ella Levy. I was invited to the opening of her new boutique in Neve Zedek a few weeks ago and fell in love with all of her pieces so I knew we had to collab together. Her style is a mix between minimal and modern, but very wearable. I paired the dress with a black bag and shoes to keep it simple and let the dress make the statement it deserves. So where would you wear a dress like this? Seems a bit much to wear to a wedding or family occasion but I think you can definitely wear it to a night out at a fashion event which I go to a lot or any kind of industry event thats creative like an art opening or movie premiere. Stay tuned for the next posts because I’ll be showing another look with one of Ella Levy’s dresses and don’t forget to visit her website here. Hope you liked the look and until next time! xx Karen

I was invited a few weeks ago to the opening of the first Stradivarius store in Israel, in the Azrieli mall in Tel Aviv. It is a gigantic store, right next to its sister Zara, and I have to say  I was so impressed with the collection and the service. They have a policy at the store where you can ring for a sales associate in the fitting rooms and ask for any size or help, which is really useful. Also, the clothes themselves were so cute and on trend I wanted to take everything home:) I picked out this lace up top because it has long sleeves and is great for the fall and a varsity bomber jacket because I’ve been seeing them everywhere lately and I love it. I styled the outfit with denim cut off shorts and some white sneakers for a simple and clean look. The choker I’m wearing I made myself, its actually really easy you just wrap it around your neck a few times and tie it. Well, I hope you loved the outfit and until next time! xx Karen

Castro, an Israeli fashion retailer, came out with a new t-shirt line called T-Art in collaboration with the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. I was invited to the launch event and they gave me a coupon for a free t-shirt. Here’s what I chose, cute right? Not sure which artist drew this but I liked that it was fun and colorful. I paired the top with ripped denim shorts I got from the Hallway in Dizengoff center because its way too hot in Tel Aviv to wear anything else. The boots might be a bit of an exaggeration because its even too hot to wear those, I’d probably just be walking around with sandals. Hope you like the look and until next time! xx Karen

Top DIY // skirt vintage // shoes Topshop // bag vintage

I went to the vintage market on Dizengoff the other day and fell in LOVE with this chiffon skirt that I found there. My favorite thing about vintage pieces is that they are so much better quality than the stuff you find in fast fashion stores with the exception maybe of Zara. This one has two layers and is made of good durable fabric, such a find! To balance out the pretty feminine vibes of the skirt, I paired it with a graphic tee that I bought for a few dollars at the market and cut it to make it a crop top. I added a pop of color with the lace up sandals that have a bit of metallic in the heel which I love. If I were a super successful blogger or wealthy I would be wearing a nice Chanel bag instead of this one- but this will have to do until then! 😉 Hope you love the look and until next time! xx Karen

לפני כמה ימים הלכתי לשוק הוינטאג בתל אביב והתאהבתי בחצאית שיפון זו שמצאתי שם. הדבר האהוב עלי בבגדי וינטאג שהבגדים באיכות הרבה יותר טובה ממה שמוצאים היום בחנויות האופנה חוץ מאולי בזארה.
לחצאית הזו שתי שכבות והיא עשויה מבד עמיד מאוד, איזו מציאה! בכדי לאזן את הוויב של החצאית הנשית שילבתי אותה עם חולצה גרפית שקניתי בשוק בכמה דולרים וגזרתי אותה  לחולצת בטן. הוספתי צבע עם סנדלי תחרה בעלי עקב מתכתי שאני מאוד אוהבת. אם הייתי בלוגרית מאוד מאוד מצליחה או עשירה הייתי לובשת תיק  נחמד של שנאל במקום זה – אבל נסתפק בזה בינתיים!:) מקווה שאהבתם את הלוק ועד הפעם הבאה – קרן

I love mixing prints, especially with graphic print tees so these striped pants and top go perfectly for me. I gave the look a pop of color with the mirror sunglasses, which reflect the colors around in the lenses so it adds a lot to an outfit. To accessorize, my favorite new platform shoes from Caligula and a vintage side bag I got from the vintage market on Dizengoff. Any of you who have been following me long enough know that I am obsessed with that place:) Well, this is an easy casual summertime look and I hope you love it! Until next time xx Karen

I discovered my love for the new athleisure trend while surfing through Pinterest the other day. Its flooded with photos of Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner wearing leggings, belly bearing crop tops and sneakers and I’m inspired! Also because I received these awesome new shoes from Le Coq Sportif (thank you to them) and they are really cute. I styled the outfit with a blue hoodie, denim jacket and gold chain bag for an extra pop. Even though its almost 100 degrees in the hot Tel Aviv summer I still wore the jacket for the photo and I was melting:) It’s almost fall so I gotta add a bit of fall fashion inspiration, right? Hope you love it, until next time xx Karen
