Or… Same closet – different attitude
September clearly came out of nowhere – a new season is about to start. Apart from the obvious sadness that weighs on my heart as summer ends, I found myself thinking about the never-ending periodicity of the fashion world and the constant pursuit after the next trend.
Let’s face it, the fashion and style lovers amongst us suffer from a severe “disturbance” that gets us extremely excited and filled with thrill over a new collection, which then quickly subsides in the same intensity.
Every season we walk into stores, excited over the new color schemes and patterns – attacked with the urge to head on a shopping spree because “I have nothing to wear”, then – in a moment of clarity we wonder: “why did I by this item? What on earth was I thinking?”
After that happens, we make our best effort to rearrange our closet in order to make room for the new collection. We get rid of or donate clothes that have barely been worn and “pardon” many other items “because they might come back in style one day”… And so on. In one word – madness!
For the past two decades or so – Tel aviv has been my home.
The city “where no one has a day-job” and where the espresso and sushi enthusiasts reside along with the “sour faces” ;-)
The past month has been particularly Tel Avivian for me. A combination of free time and seasonal changes led to spending time in many events and product launches, so I’ve decided to dedicate this article to local creations – a celebration of Israeli fashion.
To present to you some of the designers I truly respect, and that I believe make the Fashion industry in Tel Aviv unique, diverse and different.
”It was on sale!“ – a phrase that makes my friends roll their eyes and crack up in laughter, every time I put it to use.
What can I do?! I‘m my own cliché! Give me a good sale, end of season discount or some unordinary deal – and I‘m rendered senseless.
In the past few years, I‘ve honed the skill of locating hot items in discounted prices, so I decided to write a hitchhiker‘s guide to the world of discounts.
THE KEY FASHION TRENDS TO KNOW ABOUT FOR AUTUMN – WINTER 2018/19
It is now official – daylight saving time has begun and the days have turned a bit colder.
Although it seemed for a minute like winter has failed to arrive, there‘s a big chance that while you‘re reading these lines winter will have already landed in our region.
So yes, the Israeli winter is warmer compared to farther regions abroad, but there‘s no reason it should be any less fashionable and updated. So I decided to put together a follow-up article to the trend guide I posted a few weeks ago and set some order in the various fashion trends I haven‘t addressed yet.
THE KEY FASHION TRENDS TO KNOW ABOUT FOR Autumn – Winter 2018/19
Welcome back to reality!
The holiday season is over, you’ve stopped posting photos from dreamy vacations (thank god!) and as for me – the opulent family dinner season has come to an end.
I don’t know what it’s like for you, but with every year that goes by – our holiday
dinners seem to become more of a feast that’s gone out of control. If that’s not enough, during the days I had a break from all the holiday fuss, I found myself attending culinary events and Friday night dinners at friends’ houses where – how can I phrase this elegantly – common sense was left outside of the kitchen as well.
By the way, please note that a fast, effective and proven method for losing all of those extra pounds you’ve accumulated over the holidays is wearing a coat. Works every time ;-)
