I'm really behind on Milan fashion week (although as everyone else I loved Jil Sander, Raf Simons is really talented), that's because I spent the week looking for apartments there...I know it's way too early to even think about it but I love real-estate and looking at houses and apartments...There's this great website where you get to see the actual street from all the angles (and I thank google earth for that) so it's like having a virtual trip in the city...I wonder what are the best neighborhoods to live in (I really want to find something nice, but let's face it, I'm a student...so I'll have to compromise :) )
If by any chance you're familiar with Milan , I would love to get some tips, like where to live, to go out, eat etc...
I don't really have any interesting outfit pictures, maybe because I haven't been out of the house for the most week, so I didn't dress up that much...but I do have some fotos a friend of ours took (thank you Eli) when we went out...I think he's really talented...
Outfit posts will come once the weather will get better and my boyfriend will agree to take pictures:)

And of course I found some. I do have one blush blouse I found in Zara last summer and a skirt I received from my boyfriend's sister, but I'm still dreaming of that Zara dress...and the shoes...
To comfort me I found some clothes that go with my pink mood...until I get my wishes :)

Today I'm wearing my uniform. Even if you have a closet full with great clothes, there are always a couple of outfits that you lean on and wear to death...
This is the case with this outfit: Zara dress, Castro cardigan, vintage Celine jacket and Mango boots. I don't remember where I got this scarf, I think it was Honigman...
On these days when I feel like I have nothing to wear (riiiight) I wear these clothes.
I went to Zara today and saw all the beautiful clothes "live" ...there were some disappointments but also some great finds. I fell in love with this pink dress from their "Studio" line...It's the prettiest light pink that can be worn in so many ways...I still left it at the store because it had a stain on it and there wasn't another one in my size...well maybe next time...

And after such a lovely day, a new week is supposed to feel great but I just feel stuck. I always thought that if I won't work I'll have plenty of time for fashion and my website and blog...but what I discovered is that you kind of freeze and at some point loose the desire to do anything...Maybe it's because I always worked, even when I studied in two places, so I always felt busy and "on the move"...Anyway, enough ranting, I hope this feeling will go away and even more so I hope I will finally get a job, so I can feel more inspired and filled with energy...
Just some pics from yesterday...I always admire how so many other bloggers get really dressed up to the beach...I just can't do it...so this is as casual and plain as it gets for me :)
P.S: I submitted all the forms to Istitutto Marangoni and I'm supposed to get an answer in about two weeks...

I have to admit I wasn't that exited when I visited the store a couple of days ago but the website makes me want to pop to the store every day to see if something new has arrived!
I just love the shoes: the yellow and purple shoes that have the most amazing shape....the nude shoes with laces in the front, the black pair with the ankle bracelet...I have to have all of them!
And also the color palette of the clothes: the peaches and the nudes are amazing and also the color clashes of blues pinks reds etc... I'm planning to get the peach jacket, or even the peach suit (if it will make its' way to Israel), the purple bubble skirt...the peach/nude dress I guess I am that easy...:)
The pictures are from Zara.com
Well, what's done is done and I can only enjoy the shoes because they will be a great staples for summer...
the first pair is Chloe sandals I bought on Net-a-Porter and already showed here, the second pair are the most gorgeous pair of flats from Bottega Veneta. I just love the soft leather and the shape of these shoes...and they feel like slippers on your feet...
After indulging in designer shoes, I turned to my main source of shoes, which is Zara of course. It seems like they get better every season or maybe it's just me being dizzy from all the spring collections. But I also found something great on sale...!
First pair is sandals with a very high heel and laces...it looks great and will be one of my "go to" pairs this summer.
The second pair is a pair of pumps with wooden platform. I just fell in love with the shape and the texture of the leather...again, very practical and actually comfy...and it cost me 150 shekels (less than 40$)..

It's a new world for me while dressing: everything looks so different with red, and I do like it...But before I discover bright colors like pinks and yellows etc...I wanted to go for darker calmer colors to show off the hair.
Mostly people go for this kind of drastic change while going through drastic changes in their lifes: like break ups etc'...I think that I did it because I want a change (mostly proffesionaly, my personal life is great as it is:) )...I know that new haircut won't bring it but maybe my state of mind will :)

I don't think I'll keep the curls because it's too much but I'll go for more natural look, or will straighten them...Anyway I'll post the photos of the original haircut soon:)
My project was featured on http://www.eonline.co.il/ along with other classmates' projects, which is great! LINK to article (in Hebrew). Unfortunately I still don't have the pics because I got a bad cd and I'll get them only on Sunday...

But I'm so excited! Today I received my order from Net-a-Porter and the clothes are great! And it was a bargain...I ordered Helmut Lang dress, Malene Birger skirt and Chloe flat sandals...I hope these three items will be my staples this summer...I chose not to go for the crazy heeled shoes because as much as I love them, most of the time they're just standing in my closet and I wear them only when I go out or for some special occasion...especially in the summer when all I can think of is flat sandals- as open as possible...Maybe next time I will get some crazy shoes...:)
The skirt: I love the fabric
And here are the photos from Net-a-Porter:

That is why I hesitated when I bought this dress...actually it's from one of these sales where you buy 2 items and get third one for free (hate this kind of sales) but I loved the two items that I chose and was looking for the third one. After browsing a store for the tenth time I decided to get the same dress I chose in brow in a different color, which was red of course...
Last year I rarely wore it but this year I actually prefer the red over brown...I guess I'm becoming more and more like my grandmother, who adores everything red: shoes, dresses, jackets...you name it, she has it in red. She's actually very stylish, I'll post her outfits someday:)
Jacket: vintage Ungaro
Flats: Steve Madden
