Leaves Dress

It’s great to pass these hot summer days with comfort and elegance. When I think of comfort, there are a number of parameters I find important. Not too revealing, not too tight, not too short. When an outfit has all these features, I enjoy it and wear it for a very long time.

I designed a light comfortable dress made of thin smooth Crepe fabric with white leaves printed on a brown background. The knee-high dress doesn’t cling to the body; it has a delicate bat sleeve and a V-shaped neckline made of a mixed brown fabric. Together with Maya Shalev, I designed a leather belt without a buckle, designed to be freely tied around the waist. The belt gives the total look its chic.

Dark Maxi Skirt & Hearts Blouse

Lately I have been wearing mostly Maxi skirts. I realized they are comfortable, liberating and create a rich feminine look. In previous posts I presented the Maxi skirt in polka-dotted everyday fabrics. This time I present the Maxi skirt made of a rich dark brown silk fabric. The length of the skirt, its front fold and the fabulous fabric give the Maxi skirt a presence suitable for the evening hours.

To match this skirt I designed a sleeveless silk blouse, with a round neckline, and six evenly-spread folds under the neckline. The fabric has a creamy tone with delicate heart illustrations, and the blouse ends with a diagonal golden-olive strip. The fabric is see-through so I designed this blouse with a slightly creamy-toned lining.
