I came upon this bag on Net-A-Porter and it was really love at first site. I had just gotten my first Chanel bag on eBay so I didn’t want to splurge on another designer bag so quickly. A few months passed, and somehow the bag kept popping up everywhere- you know how that happens after you see something you like? Net-A-Porter is a great site but I thought I might try my luck on secondhand online stores to see if I could find it there at a lower price. Low and behold- a girl was selling it on eBay!! Oh, how I love eBay. I quickly messaged her to see if it was a real bag but I could see from her reviews and other items that what she was selling was definitely authentic. Side note- a good tip to find out if what you want to buy in eBay is actually authentic: check to see if the seller has sold items before and if he has had reviews. If the seller is new and there are no reviews- most likely it is fraud! They will sell you a bag but it is probably fake. Also- open up a new tab in your browser with the real bag on a site like Saks or Norstrom, and then zoom in to see if the details match perfectly. If they don’t, it is a fake bag! I learned this the hard way:/

Anyway, the bag goes for around $740 on Net-A-Porter, it looks like its currently sold out there but I can leave the link here for you. I bought mine from a woman named Lori on eBay who actually sells a lot of secondhand designer bags. I can leave you a link to her eBay store here. I bought it from her for $450 which was really a steal. It was in perfect condition, not really sure why she was selling it but she probably just didn’t want it anymore. It is a really small bag though- must be noted- that what fits in there is only keys, a tiny card holder and an iphone 6 or 7, not an iphone plus. But I don’t mind that, I actually like really small bags they are great for going out at night or for events. Hope this post was helpful guys and please feel free to leave me feedback or if you have any questions about the bag or shopping on eBay in general. Until next time! xx Karen

Plaid Pants + Rolling Stones Tee

I’ve been loving the gingham trend lately – so I decided to try a different spin on it. I’m not sure if these pants are considered gingham, they seem like just plaid to me. What is the difference between the two anyway? I decided to pair them with a rolling stones tee that I picked up at Zara a few months ago. The pants themselves are from Brandy Melville, last year I believe, and the loafers are Asos which I ordered recently. I like the laid back and edgy feel of the look but its very casual and good for summer. I love mixing and matching prints/graphics so this outfit was a favorite of mine. Hope you like it, too! Until next time xx Karen

Last week I was invited to the launch event of the H&M summer 2017 collection in Tel Aviv. It was located at the Hayarkon park and there was a beautiful setup near the river with a photoshoot set made from items from the H&M home shop. A few other bloggers and I had the chance to look through the new collection and pick out some of our favorites to photograph. There was also a girl who made flower crowns which I love! This one is beautiful right? So I decided to pick out this metallic dress that’s perfect for a summer party or event and then paired it with a more casual item – these green velvet slides which are stunning. So in love with them. Hope you love this look! The new collection is now in stores in Tel Aviv and all over Israel so you can find these items there. Have a great week xx Karen

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

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!!

boots Sam Edelman // jeans DIY (see video below) // coat Castro // bag Sophie Hulme

I frayed the hem of these jeans a while back and did a DIY video about it but never actually did a full outfit post, so here it is! I took an old pair of light wash jeans I had and used them to create the video, linked below. It’s a pretty easy tutorial and it comes out beautiful but it just takes a while and is very messy so beware:) I love wearing these jeans to upgrade any causal outfit. Fraying them makes the jeans be kind of a statement piece so I style the rest in basic neutral tones with just another pop of color in the bag. Hope you love this look and don’t forget to check out my Fringe Denim DIY video below. Until next time, xx Karen

אני בלוי מתחת לשולי הג’ינס האלה לפני כמה זמן ועשיתי וידאו על זה, אבל אף פעם לא באמת עשיתי פוסט תלבושת מלא, אז הנה זה! לקחתי זוג ישן של ג ‘ינס לשטוף אור נאלצתי והשתמשו בהם כדי ליצור את הווידאו, מהקישור הבא. זהו הדרכה די קל וזה יוצא יפה אבל זה פשוט לוקח זמן והוא מאוד מבולגן ולכן צריך להיזהר 🙂 אני אוהבת ללבוש ג’ינס אלה לשדרג כל בגד סיבתי. התרפטות אותם הופך את הג’ינס להיות סוג של חתיכת הצהרה אז אני סגנון שאר בגוונים ניטרליים בסיסיים עם רק פופ אחר של צבע בשקית. מקווה שאתה אוהב את המראה הזה ואל תשכח לבדוק את ההקלטות דנים פרינג שלי למטה. עד הפעם הבאה, xx קארן

DIY: Lace Up Skirt

My latest DIY is inspired by a skirt I saw Kaia Gerber wearing a few months back. I love the way that the skirt gives an outfit that extra edge without looking like you’re trying too hard. It’s also a great way to wear all black without looking boring 🙂 Well, I won’t bore you with more explanations because I say it all in the video, so enjoy! And send me a pic if you tried this at home!

הסרטון “עשה זאת בעצמך״ האחרון שלי הוא בהשראת חצאית שראיתי את קאיה גרבר לובש כמה חודשים אחורה. אני אוהבת את האופן שבו החצאית נותנת משהו נוסף בלי להראות כאילו שאת מנסה יותר מדי. זוהי גם דרך מצוינת ללבוש הכל שחור בלי להראות משעמם 🙂 ובכן, אני לא ישעמם אתכם !עם הסברי יותר משום שאני אומרת הכל בסרטון, אז תהנו! ותשלחו לי תמונה אם ניסיתם את זה בבית
