COAT OF MANY COLORS

Before I left for Israel, I threw an outfit together that I thought would MAYBE be representative of Israeli style -- long skirts, floppy hats, gladiator sandals, and floor-length kimonos, all in a desert color palette. I was totally wrong, but the look was fun because it's referential to the story "Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors." I remember learning about it in Hebrew school. Probably watched an animated film about it. Definitely did a color-by-number. Torah/bible outfits are hugely underrated. Do not be surprised if within the next two weeks I come up with a "Prince of Egypt" ensemble.

Sandals - O'Neill
Bag - Vintage

In Israel, girls have gorgeous wavy hair that's so long it reaches their bum. They usually wear it middle or side-parted and, like me, they love a coat of red lipstick! The most popular get-up was a pair of high-waisted leggings with a leotard, tank, or t-shirt tucked in. So simple and perfect... I can't wait to return to the city and go vintage shopping.

These are a few pics from my trip! I took hundreds but narrowed it down to a smooth 9. Traveled everywhere from the Golan Heights to Tel Aviv... stayed in 2 kibbutzim, 1 youth hostel, 1 bedouin tent, and 1 Jerusalem hotel. Desert, sea, and Masada in between!


















Everything is infinite,

  12. As a half Israeli, I have to say, although your outfit was a bit desert chic, I do like it even though jeans and t-shirt are completely the norm over there :P
