LEATHER DRESS


As much as I try to be consistent with my blog post, I am so overdue with new post. Between running Tel Aviv Couture, styling, new projects and being a mommy and expecting baby #2 in about 2 months, I have to admit that completing my weekly to do list is becoming more of a challenge. 
At least,  I have been pretty consistently posting on Instagram,  I hope you follow me there :)

Next week, I finally have my photo shoot to showcase some of my favorite maternity pieces. 

This post, is all about timeless leather dress. Those photos were shot more than 2 years ago and never been posted.

I am a strong believer that beautiful things never go out of style. This leather dress was purchased a while ago and was worn many times to different occasions. I even wore it during this pregnancy at relatively early stages just because I didn't want to stretch it much.

I adore this piece because it can be worn year-round, it's timeless and versatile. One on of those items that you should own!









I am wearing Halogen dress which is no longer available but I found some fresh options for you to consider.

NEW YORK NEW YORK



How lucky that my other half grew up in Manhattan and now we have many exciting reasons to go back. For example, this weekend we flew in to attend a super special wedding of Jason's childhood friend.

I am in love with this city. It has so much character and so much to offer that no matter how many times you have been there you always find something new.

Here are some high lights from this trip.

The extraordinary international modern art show that takes place once a year for the last 16 years! I was so excited to attend this iconic event. Besides the inspiring art, I loved watching the incredibly cool crowd that filled very quickly this creative space. And we saw Oscar winner Patricia Arquette who also came to explore the show.

- Grandma visit

Unfortunately, not every visit we get to see all our friends and family but we never miss on meeting  Jason's 93 year old grandma Ida. She is my instant dose of inspiration. This time grandma welcomed us wearing super chic black & white kimono dress, make up and hair done to perfection. I decided from that moment and on to keep the chic at home as well, even if I am alone.



- 2nd Avenue Deli

If you are up for something different such as a picnic in Central Park, I would suggest you to make a stop at the 2nd Avenue Deli and get some cold cuts, knishes or any of your favorite kosher treats.  I wasn't surprised that this deli been around so long as their food is simply spectacular. They also have  a restaurant with a full menu if you prefer to dine in.


It was very short but very sweet trip. We enjoyed every minute of it and already looking forward for our next visit :)

MY WISH LIST

I have a hard time to believe that I am already at my 3rd trimester! I simply can't wait to hold my little guy :) I am so excited!  Good thing that between work and preparing for the arrival of my little prince, time is flying fast.
I am a lot less excited about shopping at this time especially for clothing. To satisfy my shopping cravings I been mostly shopping beauty products and building an inspirational wish list.

This post I am sharing with you some of my favorite products and current top picks from my wish list. All sources can be found on my pinterest, wish list board.



Lately, I decided to experiment nude lip color but when I actually tried, it looked too pale on me.  I started using it as a base for brighter or dark colors and love the results. I am a fan of matte shades,  Nars, Nyx and Anastasia are my favorite!

This weekend, I am traveling for a wedding. Destiation, details and my looks coming in my next blog post. In a meantime, for instant updates follow me on Instagram #talikogan.

Thank you so much for reading my blog. I am the most grateful.

BABY-MOON and MY RESORT STYLE



After Chicago Winterland post, I am jumping straight to resort style, Riviera Maya Mexico.

This vacation was a very last minute decision as we had a unique opportunity that we couldn't resist. 

 I didnt have much time to look for resort maternity clothing. Now I am about 5.5 months pregnant and my baby bump (and everything else:) is growing super fast. But luckily I still found a perfectly fit black summer dress in my closet that could also easily transform from day to night. 
The lesson I learned from my travel experiences is that to destination like this, the key is to pack as light as possible, especially when traveling with toddler. It makes the entire trip so much easier.

 Here are some of my resort essentials:

1. drama hat. 2. swimsuit. 3. cover up 4. sunnies 5. shine hair spray 6. summer dress  7. light jacket 9. flip flaps 10. sneakers

CHICAGO WINTERLAND



This weekend Chicago walloped by the fifth biggest snowstorm ever! 
I know for some it wasn't easy to deal with so much snow. 
I personally very much enjoyed watching it, especially the view from my place on the 49 floor :-)
When we went outside, all I wanted to do is capturing the beauty of the Mother Nature. As some of you know one of my favorite things to do is photographing everything around that inspires me.
This post I really wanted to share some of those images with you.
I hope you enjoy!
Stay warm and stylish :-)

STATEMENT COAT


For a fashionsta who lives in a winter city, investing in a statement coat is a really great idea. Simply beacuse we are wearing coats at least 1/3 of the year so we may as well have some fun with it. Thanks to Blake boutique Chicago, I discovered this Fausto Puglisi fabulous coat on sale! This is an ideal piece to add some color to my mostly black and wardrobe and perfect for me to wear during and after pregnancy :)






COAT FAUSTO PUGLISI   //  RAFFLE DRESS  BARAK LAHAV  //   BAG ALEXANDER MQUEEN   //  TIGHTS GAL STERN   //   BOOTIES BALENCIAGA  (Blake Chicago on sale)  //  NECKLACE TEL AVIV COUTURE  //  RING TEL AVIV COUTURE

Items that I wear on a daily basis, I like investing in high end designers (especially if they are on sale).  Most of them keep pretty high value which always give me an opportunity to sell and buy a new one, almost like borrowing. But I have also found some great deals for you below. 





Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope you have a warm and happy week!
