★ Street Chic Tel Aviv Celebrates 2 Years ★

November 9th, 2013 marks the day I opened a Facebook page for Street Chic Tel Aviv. What started out as a street style diary where I went around documenting what others were wearing has since turned into my passion and platform for my own personal style.  For me, blogging has not only been a fun way to express my love for fashion but also a place to grow and learn along the way. Since I started my blog I’ve become an expert at photographing, using photoshop, building websites through WordPress and of course becoming an Instagram addict :) Fashion has always been my first love and I knew from a young age that I wanted to work in it. My favorite part about fashion blogging being able to take an idea I have for an outfit and share it with the rest of the world, in the hopes to inspire. When I came into the office a few months ago and I saw one of my coworkers dressed exactly like me in one of my photos, I asked her where she got the idea and she answered “I saw it on you’re blog!”, it made me feel incredible, I knew all of my hard work was worth it.

For any aspiring bloggers out there reading this, or for anybody that has a dream for that matter, I would say my number one piece of advice is don’t give up. I can’t count the number of times that I made stupid mistakes and felt like quitting. And how many times people asked me (especially in Israel) “what’s a blog?” Sometimes I look back at some of my old photos and I cringe a little inside. But it’s all a learning process! And I would have never gotten to where I am now without going through it all. The more people doubt me and I hear the word “no” the more I want to succeed and prove them wrong.

So what does the future hold? I want to continue to create interesting outfits, take beautiful photos, collaborate with talented designers and hopefully be able to inspire others. As one of the few Israeli fashion bloggers, I would love to be able to promote Israeli fashion abroad. Most importantly, I want to do what I love and have fun with it! So, as a birthday tribute, I’ve ranked my top looks from this past year down below. Let me know which one of them you liked the best in the comments section below! Love you all and have an amazing week xx Karen
