j is for jaune

anne wintour's musings have always been a source of inspiration mais bien sur...but every morning my choice of "frosting" and what lies beneath my abaya is never the norm. experimental by nature i wear the color the evokes me the most on a particular day...that color can be from a vivid dream i had the night before, a 1950's black and white eygptian movie i fell asleep to (bare in mind i paint the screen with my eyes..color styling suad hossini is always super fun) or the perfect shade of plum cherry on my breakfast plate. everything inspires me and i've had my harajuku-nicolerichie-l.a.streetstyle-uber hip & faux-pas phases throughout..& still i like to think that i'm not your average local mould.  Everyday is & should be a fun, dress up, whimsical day..my family has become immune to my tiara and tutu days. nothing turns their heads anymore over lunch ahaha.this week a song's has spurred my lust for all things..yummyyellow  mmm. i *heart* coldplay

et voila..my favorite yellow moments in fashion..

hotter than hot yellow " SPEEDY BOY" inspired MJ gloves. for driving and riding molly <3.. 

Givenchy Haute-ness <3>

lemon yellow sunnies

3.1 phillip lim S'08 blazer is a super cute must have this season. how adorable is this look?

& in all awesome-ness a yellow past time favorite of mine, late night dinners at the meat packing district followed by crazier yellow cab rides to the hotel..the streets past midnight are always a buzz and flickering with lights. and our "call out a pose and click 10 million pictures inside a cabbie" game never fails to perfect what starts out as a fabulous nyc day... enjoy & make tomorrow a mellowyellowyummyyyyyy day =)

"fashion is as popular as football if not more" mj

so why marc. for the previously delusioned at heart let me shed light..

my prelude to being a stylist at harvey nix was the year of fashion i did. and so were my beginnings. my fashion foray to fashy-fabulousness all began with fluro highlighters that at one point matched my leggings..tall skinny lattes and heavier than heavy fashion history books. of course i drifted onto designers that in more ways than other tapped into the innate quirk that i truly am.

mcQueen was always a favorite..but my fascination for "tongue in cheek designer fashion" stemmed with my love affair for a certain some one's mindset..Franco Moschino. After a stint at Versace, he set up his own label to make fun at the loud brand obsessed nation we have morphed into..he plastered his name on nylon bags, loud & ostentatious was his gimmick of course fashion slaves fell victim and that was in '83 (irony - times have not changed)..

"Although established fashion houses looked on in horror at the sensational acclaim garnered by Moschino, the adoring fans clamored for more. More is exactly what Moschino gave them- more powerful and evocative combinations and creations, more irreverent styles, and more out-of-this-world fashion.

Moschino wanted people to laugh at fashion, he knew they took it too seriously to laugh for long. However, Moschino grasped the challenge anyway, and he created thought provoking fashions replete with original messages through text on cloth or visual puns for his adoring public.

A pioneer sloganeer, Milanese Moschino’s collections would regularly ask whimsical subjective questions such as “Who’s to say what’s in fashion?” and often his designs subliminally warn against becoming fashion victims".

& life has never been la meme.

Jacobs like Moschino has a playful nature..questioning the so-called norms of fashion.. at any given day a marc by marc jacobs tunic dress would add a bounce to my step. through collaborations with artists (murakami for the house of vuitton et al) he has proven to be an acclaimed visionary in the world of fashion. his shows are amusing & his fragrances make me all giddy. but who would call a green fragrance cucumber..c'est mon marc <3

My name is Noora - i appreciate designers who seriously  question stylistic conventions and stage a sense of humor- & this is my blog.
