Where can I get a formal dress for an event?

This is a question that I get all of the time so I decided to answer in here for all to see.

The best place to go for the biggest selection of formal or event dresses in Israel is Diezengoff St. in Tel Aviv.
Younger, hipper designers are in the area around Gan Hahashmal in Tel Aviv.
If you want to go in the other direction to Haifa there are some dress shops along the road that goes from Horev to the Dan Hotels.

Ben Yishai Shoes

I have been looking to buy a pair of boots, and the boots I am looking to buy are Ben Yishai boots.

In Israel Ben Yishai Shoes are best known for their comfort and quality. They are also known for their unique style, though it sometimes borders on odd. Also, Ben Yishai have a bigger size range than most shoe manufactures, especially for large size shoes. They are not known for being cheap.
Since I have started this blog, I have gotten many e-mails asking where one can buy Ben-Yishai shoes in Israel and outside of it. The fact is that Ben Yishai shoes are sought after but not that easy to find. Also, there does not seem to be an English sight for Ben Yishai shoes.
Ben Yishai shoes can usually be found in Gazith shoe shops and Be-Unique shops, but most are spread around, or hiding as it seems, in quality shoe shops all over Israel.

Here is a list of some of the shoe shops in Israel where you can find Ben Yishai shoes:

Michal Negrin Fashion Gallery in Neve Tzedek Tel Aviv

Michal Negrin recently opened a new concept stop of her designs in Tel Aviv. This shop named the Michal Negrin Fashion Gallery is housed in a fantastic building dating from 19th century, in the new Neve Tzedek shopping area in Tel Aviv.  The styling of the new shop is in keeping with Michal Negrins newer designs, which are on display in the shop.

A visit to the Neve Tzedek is a great way to pass a fun few hours and the new shopping area including Michal Negrins new shop is quite an experience in itself, whether you buy anything or are just there to browse.

I mean, really, is this not the best in Israeli jewelry shopping? 

Ripped jeans fashion trend is here

Remember when I wrote about the faded jeans trend in the beginning of summer and forsaw that ripped jeans are not far off? Well, faded and ripped jeans are here.

I’ve spotted the very first of the ripped jeans trend in Haifa.

Here are pictures of the anticipated ripped jeans at the Grand Kenyon mall.

I have to admit I am not thrilled at this fashion trend. I still have bad memories of this overused and abused trend from the 90’s.
