The Perfect Tulle Dress

forever21-fashion-blog-chenbenshoshan-itaior-photography-streetchicgeek-12

When you walk into a huge chain store like Forever 21 it's hard not to get confused and leave without buying anything, But there are other times when you walk in and the perfect piece of clothing catches your eye and It's love at first sight - that's what happened for me and this perfect tulle dress! It has the perfect casual grey color with the drama and flare that the tulle fabric adds, AND it can be dressed up or down for every occasion! But even if it doesn't happen to you, my trick to survive shopping in huge stores is to go through every rack as if it is the only rack of clothes in the store and to do so from one end of the store to the other, this way you won't miss anything, you won't get dizzy, and the most important thing - you'll find amazing items! WIN :-)

JR + LALIQUE / Masterpiece Collection

IMG_017_ITZICK_BIRAN

I'm sure everyone will agree with me that you always feel a little excitement when you enter the duty free zone at the airport, not because of the tax free shopping and definitely not because of the food court, but because you know that this is a rest station on the way to somewhere new/beautiful/exciting or maybe even just back home. But for me this is not always the case, as I sometimes arrive to James Richardson duty free for work reasons, and I have to say each time I do I still get that little thrill from just being there. The last time I was visiting the James Richardson duty free was two weeks ago, when I was invited to exhibit the JR / Masterpiece collection.

A unique collaboration between the first International glass Art company Lalique, and 22 young designers from Bezalel Academy of Arts - Department of Ceramics and Glass and James Richardson Duty Free, gave birth to the exhibition: "Master
Piece collection" currently held in the duty free shop James Richardson. The Israeli public who will visit the JR Duty Free store during the month of October will be able to exhibit the works of art in the collection, and will also be able to influence the winning work by voting for his favorite design!

For the first time the LALIQUE Company will adopt the perfume bottle design of a Bezalel student, and put it to the products line. The winning bottle will be marketed as part of the LALIQUE company's products in international distribution! I think that this is pretty amazing don't you? And of course I already voted for my two favorite designs: one by Hanan Vanunu - STAFYLIA , and one by Aya Vanunu - IMPRESSIONS OF SCENT. both in my opinion did an amazing job with their designs, and really created something that is unique and also very decorative, and I'm a big fan of perfume bottles that I can display in my home long after I've finished the perfume. So if you are passing through the James Richardson duty free store in the next two weeks, go check it out and vote for the best design, you could help some young designer make a dream come true and that alone is a good reason to vote! :-)

Factory 54 A/W 15 Presentation

IMG_20140907_182116

A few weeks ago I was at the Factory 54 Herzelia store to take a look at their new A/W 15 collection. I'm always a fan of the  curating work the team at Factory 54 are doing with the collections. Everything is always so perfect and swoon worthy! So there was no surprise I loved everything I saw at the presentation and the centre of it all was the muse of the cosmopolitan women: On one hand a lot of manly influences like tailored pieces, roughed denim and flats; On the other hand a lot of youthful 60's and 70's looks, feminine and bold. As a big fan of mixing girly with edgy and sporty I found so many great pieces to combine together for the perfect ,mix-n-match look! Well a girl can dream... :-) Take a look at some of the pics I took of my favorite looks of the new collection, now available in all Factory 54 stores.

Holiday Wishlist

Perfumes6

In a couple of days we will celebrate the Jewish new year, and for me it's always a time for new beginnings and for new purchases. One of my new beginning was moving to a new apartment and making it my home, but beside that, Holiday shopping are a must no matter what holiday you are celebrating, and a new fragrance to start the new year with is always a good idea, whether it's for yourself or as a gift to someone special. Here are a few of my choices:

BTW- For this shoot I was inspired by the latest spread in GoStyle magazine, done by the incredibly talented stylist Shiran Kadar.

Perfumes2

Euphoria Gold  by CALVIN KLEIN - The designer, continues to strengthen the Euphoria family and launches a pair of new perfumes for men and women, a luxurious and sensual dance of sensual and tender woman and a man powerful and seductive. The scent is floral, fruity, opens with a sunny apricot, reinforced with juicy tangerine and fresh fruity echoes. Narcissus Flower Extract maintains a vibrant touch and lush gardenia with subtle touches of sweet honey makes it feel warm and rich. White patchouli and sandalwood blends with musk fragrance leaves a trail of the scent whenever you pass by. And it looks pretty and glamours on your toiletry stand! :-)

Perfumes

NUIT by ISSEY MIYAKE - NUIT man is powerful, self-confident and has a presence: he takes risks, seek challenges, and abundant natural appeal. The head-note fragrance combines notes of bergamot and grapefruit, broadcast glittering elegance with playfulness. The heart note - a mysterious trail of spice and leather that emphasize the masculine strength. The character Hvsis- boasts aroma of patchouli and incense pouring out the delicate sweetness of Tonka pulses. The bottle is all all black, only defined by the different materials used for the body and for the cap. The ultimate holiday gift for your man, as you will want to sniff him all day long!
