Project Las Vegas 2012


Project is the other show by WWD Magic where up and coming designers from around the world showcase their collections…

The bags by AG were chic enough to carry all the brochures and info, plus my ipad.

The emerging designers showcase! My favorite!

I had the opportunity to meet with Kaitlyn Barclay, she is the community marketing manager at www.copious.com, one of the up and coming shopping and selling platforms, strongly promoted at WWD Magic for their innovation.If you love shopping online but cannot seem to find the right item then,  join copious and curate your own shopping page in a way similar to Pinterest.

At last, PROJECT Love is a curated area hosting fashion brands that are successfully integrating philanthropy into their business model… Click here to now more about this

Las Vegas And Her Sweet Side


Although WWDMAGIC, SOURCING, PROJECT and all the shows take most of my time, I can’t deny myself the tourist moments here in Las Vegas…

This trip has been an amazing learning experience for me! Attending WWDMAGIC  completely changed my “fashion mind” and I can’t wait to post all the different shows, designers, and information so you feel like you are learning here with me! 

In the meantime, on my brakes, I have taken pictures of the “romantic” side of Las Vegas… Enjoy them, and don’t forget to enter the Las Vegas giveaway!

Walking Among The Flowers


Beyond Miami’s gorgeous beaches and all the night life there are many places to find peace and culture. One of the most beautiful places in Miami is the Fairchild Botanical Garden… The photographs don’t do justice to this place.

Madagascar… Cactus.

The first time I saw a Baobab was at Fairchild, and it really touched my heart… Baobabs have a strong meaning in my life and looking at one and being amazed by its beauty and size is really something.

The Zen Lotus gardens are also breathtaking, and full of peace.

Nature’s Hearts

I took this opportunity to browse for inspiration for the coming collections… This dead leaf is perfect for color charts, and the leaves below are perfect to create silhouettes and textures

There is a small river that crosses the gardens. Cold clear water cools the hot Miami day.

Nature’s Colors.

This leaf was almost my size!

I wore: Banana Republic Skirt (This skirt is almost Vintage, I think is 5 years old or more), a J.crew Sweater, Tory Burch Belt, Street Spardilles, Dior Sunglasses, Kate Spade Bag. 

To visit Fairchild: www.fairchildgarden.org ***Recomendations***Don’t go on a hot summer day, drink plenty of water, wear comfortable clothes and a camera is a must!

 

Jerusalem & Tel Aviv


At the Kotel

On the outsides of the old city, I wore a vintage 1950’s skirt, which I bought here

and a Banana Republic Shirt.

Spices at the Shuck in Jerusalem

Jerusalem makes your heart melt, I recommend spending about 3-6 days here, sadly we only stayed for 6 hours in Jerusalem…  and then off to Tel Aviv!

———————————————–TEL AVIV—————————————-

Bauhaus architecture

Like any metropolitan city Tel Aviv is full of trendy restaurants, artists, and shops… we spent our day mostly walking around the city, shopping, and eating around different places.

Visiting Israel is a must if you are open to new things and if you like adventure! Once you visit this amazing country, and its hidden towns, you’ll want to come back for more.

Also… Stayed tuned for my closet SALE! I joined Copious, a fashion community that lets you sell your closet, and trade with other fashionistas, and most of my wardrobe will be on sale at the website…

Metzada, The Dead Sea, And Haifa Beach


And so… the road trip continues

Ethereal Mountains….

I wore a dress (Alexa Chung Dress) my Stella & Lori bag, and a pair of Gap shoes.

On the horizon, the Dead Sea

The ruins of the fortress of Metzada, the history behind this place is amazing, read more about it here

Although I took many pictures of the sea, I have to say that it looks better from far away;  the Dead Sea looks and feels like a very salty hot soup… So I rather keep the memories to myself, until you visit this place someday…

———————————–HAIFA BEACH———————————————-

The beach hot spot in Haifa is the “Camel” as in the Cigarettes, hence the huge sign.

As always, my inseparable J.Crew Denim shirt, and a bathing suit from my past summer collection.

Walk through any of the beaches in Israel and you’ll find tons of people playing matkot, even if a huge signs prohibits it in many of these places…

The trip continues so stay in touch and drop me a line in the comments section 🙂

Cherry Picking In Israel


After Zefat, we stopped to have lunch… this was the view from the restaurant.

Israel is full of these gorgeous Hydrangea, which I am crazy for! As soon as I got home I bought a bunch for my home, and they definitely dress it up.

At the Cherry Picking Kibutz, you pay for a basket, and can eat all the cherries and blackberries you want, and can fill the basket to take home. This place was paradise.

Average size of a very sweet blackberry
