Hello World! #2 / Coming Back Post

my grandmother at her wedding day


After a long absence, I felt a need to make a special post for opening the second page of the blog. It has been five and a half years that I’m running this blog, that fashion and style have had such a big part of my life. Yet, after some thoughts, I have realized that it has always been a big part of my life. And for that, I have to thank my grandmother, Hanna.

My grandmother was the one who taught me all I know about fashion, owing a lot to her impeccable style, but also to her unforgettable (and sometimes unbelievable) sayings. My grandmother said, not once, that the happiest thing one can do is buying a new dress.

Another thing she used to do was rank her list of the three most important things in life (by this order): 1. Love* 2. clothes 3. culture.

But the most surprising (and shocking) thing she said, was during a holiday-dinner of Sukkot, when she was telling us, her grandchildren, stories from World War 2, and said: “The worst thing at the Ghetto, was having ugly shoes”. Anyone in my family had denied it ever since, but I really think that fashion was that important to her, that it was not completely sarcastic.

I haven’t figured it out yet, if it was a weird coincidence, or a direct decision, for me to take such a long vacation from this blog, parallel to her death, only 4 months ago.

*Well, she said “finding a husband quickly”, but mine is better.
