This is classic and flattering dress perfectly suited to Autumn/ Fall, by Massimo Dutti. Topping the look of with a floral headscarf, gold earrings, also by Massimo Dutti. Wear it in the day with these Celine sunglasses and bag.

She is 23 years old, lives in Jerusalem, is married and in her 3rd year of a double degree in Law and Economics. “From a young age I have thought that fashion and style are expressed not only in clothes but also in art," says Alona Magzimoff, a personal stylist and content producer at Instagram. "I have always been attached to fashion, style and the aesthetics of architecture and interior design. When I studied makeup with Natasha Danona, I went to fashion shows and studied every new designer store that opened. Now, the big dream is to produce special, big fashion shows and productions".
The item that I am most attached to emotionally or there is an interesting story behind it:
As a relatively fresh married woman, my custom-made bridal gown is the item I am most attached to. I created it with a tailor after much deliberation, the end result was beyond expectations.
I will never wear:
The bandanas that have returned to fashion, I cannot see the beauty of it.
Oversize sweaters, as large as possible, of all kinds of fabrics and of all colors, and of course headscarves.
Good shopping advice:
Only alone and in places not crowded with people, this is probably why I will never be able to buy at Sale.
