By now there’s no doubt summer is behind us. While it was still happening, I fell in love with several pieces – they were useful and unusual and will continue with me to the next summer. I wanted to share them with you, so I looked them (or similar objects) up on Polyvore – click on the picture to find out prices and store locations.
Proenza Schouler bag
A relatively ‘young’ brand I discovered on a recent trip to New York – it’s very popular nowadays, and rightfully so. I love the look of the cool square elements, the brand’s signature pattern. I choose a metallic bag, perfect for a variety of different looks and occasions.
The season’s ‘bingo’ purchase, no less! Sunglasses are crucial for summer, especially in Israel – they become an integral part of your face and can doom or elevate any look. The brand was founded by two Israeli brothers, who quickly won over Elton John, Lady Gaga, Beyonce and many more. This pair is highly fashionable, with a think, dramatic frame and high quality lenses.

These are actually sports pants with a distressed denim print, a winning combination of comfort and style. These pants had become my flying staple.

Christian Dior earrings
These earrings are a big hit among famous fashionistas for a second season in a row, and they aren’t easy to obtain. They come in many colors, but I especially love the black and white combo – classic thanks to the pearl, modern thanks to the black.
Get here: you don’t actually have to get the original – attractive fakes are everywhere. If you insist, try Ebay or Dior online.
Social agenda and a fashion statement in one purchase? Perfect. For every pair of shoes you by, the company delivers a pair to an underprivileged child somewhere around the world. The shoes are very comfortable, suit a wide range of clothes and the color is so special. The perforated raffia texture is airy and breathable, for all those (very frequent) hot summer days we have in Israel. These, too, are my regular airplane companions.
