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).
A few weeks ago I went on vacation with my friends after a (too) long period where I didn't allow myself to rest or simply lounge around. I stepped off the high heels, let my feet detach from the ground, removed formality from myself and for a week I spent my days in the wind. I ate, laughed, danced, experienced, saw, ate again, bought and couldn't get enough of it.
In a few days we will put on our best outfit, gather around a table and ask "Why is this night different from all the other nights?"
That's actually a good question. Why is this night different?
There are things that I guess will never change, like the muddy rain on a sparkly clean window before "Seder" night, or that existential discussion on whether to "continue to read the "Agada" (tale) after the meal?"
Though a season has passed, Spring is blooming around us and change is in the air. So what awaits us in Spring – Summer 2016? And what awaits me??
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.
