A Tree!

Since I was a little kid, I always loved Christmas trees. In Russia they are actually a "New Year" trees but never mind...It was so magical and full of surprises: the lights, the gifts and anticipation for the New Years Eve are part of my best childhood memories...Anyway after three years of not putting a tree, I decided to do so...and it's perfect and most importantly, it lifts my spirit every time I see it...

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year to everyone!

Mixing Colors

Although I usually think of myself as a more of a black-white- grey kind of girl, I do love color and like to experiment with it...

Now, when Holidays are approaching (New Year especially) I seek for the brighter, happier black white and grey will have to rest for a while...
It was a very cold evening and I had three more layers underneath, so the jacket looks a bit off, but I was very cold...

Jacket: Topshop
Boots: Zara
Jeans: Replay

Grown up dressing

On my way to a wedding (really late, waiting for the boyfriend). I have to tell that in our case I'm the one who's always ready on time and he's the one that is always late (just had to rant:))

I guess it's the Russian in me, always attracted to more "grown up" structured pieces. I love items that are almost too mature for my age and make me look older. This dress from Zara is one of these items, but I love it anyway. I bought it on sale for 120 Shekels (a fracture of it's original price) in Eilat two years ago, and this is the first time I'm wearing it. The second picture is quite bad (with my eyes rolled), but it shows the structure and the tailoring of the dress beautifully...

Dress: Zara

Shoes: Steve Madden

Cardigan: Honigman

Bag: vintage

New closet

Since I already made a post on my Hebrew website (which is currently running slow because of technical issues) about my closet a while ago, this is the only place I can get all excited about my new and improved closet!

I finally got my shoe shelves and lots of hanging space for my dresses...and I couldn't be any happier about it!!! I hope it will help me to appreciate what I already have and to make a full use of my wardrobe...

And already I got some new wonderful additions to the closet! I will show them tomorrow!

It's official!

Just recieved a press release from H&M which said that H&M is going to open it's first store in Israel in 2010! I can't be more thrilled...what a wonderfull news :)

Rainy and cozy

Well, it's finally raining outside and I'm about to go out for a coffee with a friend...Usually when it's cold, I tend to turn to cozy clothes. And for me this usuallymeans knits...

The (knitted) jacket is from Mango. I bought this a couple of years ago, and it's one of these things you buy and it serves you for ages. I love it...Have a good night!

Jacket: Mango
Boots: Zara

Free of any academic duties!!!

I did it! Yesterday I presented my final project, with my group, and this was the last thing I had to do before I get my degree. This project forced me to put aside all other projects like my Hebrew website (hopefully I'll start updating tomorrow) and also all my other internet activities...
Actually we kind of sucked because we weren't prepared (speaking clearly ant straight to the point takes a lot of practice for most), and went into a complete shock when we saw about 800 people staring at us...and we got criticized a lot by the judges.

But it all doesn't matter because it's only a small part of the grade (the project itself we believe is good only the presentation sucked) and the most important, it's over!!!

Our project was a introducing Lush, which is a very cool fresh and handmade cosmetics company to the Israeli market and preparing a marketing and media campaign. You can find out more about Lush at their website.

I'm a very loyal customer and I make my friends bring me the products any chance I get. Here's a story board we came up with. The drawings are by my boyfriend's sister. I colored them with Panton's Promarkers...
