Everyone that knows me knows that I always preach color – "colors, colors, colors!" To try new shades, think outside the box and adopt a new look.
But every few seasons there is one color that stands out, that turns every visit to a shop into a trip back in time, as if I went back to my days in the Army and entered the military storekeeping. There, from the top of the gun cleaning cloth hills and the mountains of old rugged uniforms, you can't help but remember, the amused look on the face of the most important man in the area. The stylist that decides destinies and sets the future – who will be a bombshell and who will bomb out – the store keeper.
In other words, I as well, just like many Israelis, developed a certain caution and suspicion towards this shade of green. Still, five years in the army did their job (Lieutenant Kochavit Akunis, nice to meet you).
They say that Lawyers sometimes can really go on. As a lawyer, I can't confirm or deny that rumor, of course, but there are some days where I wonder how is it that no one has come up with an application to cancel out all unnecessary background noises, gets rid of all the nonsense and delivers the cold hard bottom line on a silver platter.
Like many people, I also think that one should adopt certain seriousness, depth, professionalism and promptness in life… but what about all the nonsense!?
Today is International Woman's Day. I thought to myself "how this day and femininity in all its glory should be celebrated?" I remember those nights when I entertained the thought of launching a fashion blog and in particular, I remember that empowered feeling that filled me up, since it was up to me to create a magazine that would be used to promote self-love and empowerment. A source of inspiration for us to live our lives as independent, opinionated and successful women.
You know those mornings where you stand in front of the closet a little lost, scanning all the clothes in there and they throw you back this blank stare, lazily curled up inside themselves, and mutter back at you "Leave us alone… not today". Those mornings when your closet look a pale, outdated and sleepy, so much that even your pajamas look like a pretty good option and even matches perfectly with the carpet in the office?
I'll let you in on a little secret, I have a little trick I keep for those days where your body woke up before your head, those "I have nothing to wear" days – ACCESSORISE!
