The Adeloyada, The country’s largest Purim parade marked its 20th anniversary this past Thrusday in Holon, Israel. This year’s theme was “Tastes of Childhood”: with around 6,000 disguised participants and many colorful floats that displayed everything kids love to eat, from ice-cream to lollipops to hot dogs, marching to the rallying cry of “Ochel, kadima ochel”… Read more.

Spring Pastels for Everyone!

Scooter Chic,

Today was a total treat! The sun has returned and thus the scooter adventures can finally continue after a week full of rain and wind. Today I bopped from one place to another: a few different malls then to the beach, and all between those two extremes. This Spring seems like it is going to be a great season for fashion, after more than a few rather dull seasons: we survived! (It was getting a bit tedious, no?) The pastels and floral prints are everywhere and they are so lusciously gorgeous.

Today’s finds were items I couldn’t pass up: a dress from Zara’s Spring Collection and a few great sale items. (Yesh!) The Guipure Lace Dress is shown above and it is amazing in its details. The photo that Zara has up on its website doesn’t do anything for the dress (middle photo), so I took a better one that shows the fabric a wee bit better. The mark up from the states (to the Israeli price tag) is a full $20.00, but it is worth it. The red fabric behind the dress, in my photo, is a fabulous scarf that was on sale for $5.00 (original $37.00):  a complete steal! I saw the scarf a few months ago, but I couldn’t justify buying it then for the original price. I also bought a pair of capri bright orange pants on sale for $8.00 (original price, $52.00) that isn’t shown in the photo. 

Being thrifty is a good balance for anyone and sales are always fun to find!

I can’t wait for a bit warmer weather to wear this fabulous dress around town. It will absolutely turn heads. Yay for Spring and yay for this fashion season!
