The secrets to R&S

My two very close friends from Israel started this amazing concept from shopping at home. Two of them are  fashionista's and risk takers when it comes to fashion. They travel the world to find amazing one of a kind pieces to sell once a month from their home. The concept started with the idea to sell clothes to their close friends and today R&S has become your one stop shop in Tel Aviv. Who could ask for more, traveling the world, shopping for amazing one of a kind pieces, and working with your best friend- every girls dream! I sat down with Renana one of the girls from R&S to catch up and see how the two of them came up with this incredible concept. Check out she had to say...

Renana Cohen and Shira Ben-Yehuda

1. What does R&S stand for?

R&S supports the concept of one of a kind, affordable fashion.  The Global trend of huge chains such as H&M and Forever 21 is causing clothes to lose their uniqueness by their high visibility. At R&S we choose our clothes very carefully and bring one garment of each item so girls wearing it don’t have to worry about seeing someone wearing the same piece.

2. What made you guys come together and start this amazing concept of shopping and styling from your home?

Girls love to get dressed together and to get feedback from one another. I always go over a friend’s place to get ready or to add additional pieces to my outfit with accessories. We didn’t want to open a store- we think it can be a little impersonal for our customers. The first time we brought clothes back we said "let’s give it a try" and after that, we realized that this concept is more personal and people actually come to us for styling advice.

3.What is your favorite part of your job?

My favorite part of the job is taking the actual pictures of the clothes we bring back. We can actually put pieces together and creat outfits; getting the customer's feedback is amazing!

4. You both obviously see unique things when you travel so how do you select what you bring back for the sale?

The clothing and accessories that we see in our travels are endless and sometimes that can be a problem. We buy items that we could actually see ourselves wearing, which so far has been very successful.

 5. How would you describe your style?

I would describe my style as urban comfortable. I love long dresses and skirts and I would never be caught wearing a dress that is too tight! This summer it's all about bracelets and layering them on in exaggeration. I'm currently obsessed with the woven threaded bracelets that are one of a kind. Huge fan of maxi skirts and love Jeffrey Campbell all season long!

6. You both love accessorizing and have endless amount of amazing pieces, what accessory can you not live with out?

No doubt the accessory that I cannot live without is bracelets. I wear this gold bracelet on my arm my mom gave me and havent taken it off in five years.

restaurants of the week: il buco alimentari and vineria and Joseph Leonard

Il Buco Alimentari and Vineria
53 Great Jones Street
212 837 2622

one word AMAZING! Those that have already dined at il buco know that if you want delicious Italian food il buco is the place to go. Il buco Alimentari is no let down either. My friend Vanessa and I went in with no reservation (definitely make one) but got lucky. We got seated within 10 minutes at the best table in the house (rumor has it they are a big fan of pretty ladies, so I recommend going with girlfriends if you want to be seated quickly.) It was at the bar for two facing the kitchen, where we got to interact with the staff and watch every single delicious meal come out of the kitchen. Eli, a young guy working in the kitchen was quite the charmer and entertainer- love him!

For starters we had the crispy artichokes, homemade ricotta with roasted beets, white grapefriut, and pistachio, organic umbrian beans, and the mackerel (yes we got ahead of ourselves, as usual).

For the entree we shared the salt roasted branzino, pictured above- LOVED IT! The presentation was lovely and the fish was cooked to perfection.

We decided to pass on dessert but Eli gave us a little treat to go along with our herbal tea.

Joseph Leonard
170 Waverly Place
212 428 8383
I love this place! I recently had dinner there and everything was delicious. The wait can sometimes be a pain in the you know what but once you get your table its worth it. We were starving when we got there so once we sat down we munched on some mini pickles that were seasoned with this delicious mustard.

For starters we had the warm mushroom salad and a dozen Oysters (I'm such a sucker for oysters)

For entrees I had the scottish salmon which was so delicious. If your a salmon person I defintiely recommend this dish.My friend Adam had striped bass which he really enjoyed as well. I am usually one that is big on getting different dishes but both of us really wanted fish. I am dying to try the braised short ribs, if any of you go before I do and get that dish let me know how it is-sounds amazing! And sides are a MUST! the butternut squash puree I have no words just GET IT and the brussel sprouts were perfectly spiced. Always a plus they played old school hip hop all night.
