Now Opened : NohaNoor Boutique

 
 
 



Last week I have attended the opening of Noha Al-Roumi Boutique
"NohaNoor" a local brand  who's been in the business for quite a while now..
The overall appearance of the boutique was minimal and simple, as the garments were the main focus..
 



What I love about Noha's designs, clean cuts yet structured in generous volumes and eye catching colours..
Taffeta and organza, and cotton..
Loved the pants Noha wore, a simple black cigarette pant with a front pleat to give it an edge..




Look no further if you're on the hunt for party wear as well, so girly and dreamy <3
Unique statement necklaces to spice up simpler pieces as well..





 
Congratulations Noha..
The boutique opening was more than success !

Harvey's Favourite Things !





 
8 am this Saturday I had a London Taxi expected to pick me up for an exclusive tour at Harvey Nichols located in the Grand Avenue..
 
Early as a birdy, I arrived to The Avenues Mall to check out Harvey's Favourite things..

 
Greeted by Harvey's Marketing Team and buyers as you can see above, they explained to us about the floor stand dedicated to "Harvey's Favourite things"
A selection of gifts for holidays, which varied between jewelery, garments, cosmetics and shoes..












 
We were served snacks from " Veranda" the cafe' allocated at the store to be opened very soon..
You must try their Almonds Croissant, accompanied by bitter coffee I suggest..



 
I think everyone may already be bored by the countless images of Harvey Nichols, but what made this tour special that they took us behind the scenes..
To explore their party gowns sections, showcasing a hand picked selection of designers worldwide and equiped with complimenting accessories..







 
Harvey'S buyer, "Natalie" took us through the boudoir like section which was filled with amazing party gowns to choose from..
So if you have a wedding coming soon, check it out..
They even can order garments specifically to be customized to size within' a period of six weeks depending on the designer..














 
The second part of the tour was their Personal Shopping section, which made me feel like Anastasia Steele from Fifty Shades of Grey just wishing upon a Christian Grey !
Enough of my nonesense anyways, this section is divided into 7  different suites..
Each suite carries a different theme and feeling..









 
The personal shopping lounge, where customers enjoy a drink before or after their appointments..













 
That's Natalia, Harvey's personal shopper/stylist
Simple and elegant..

Outfit of the Day : The Puppet Show





 
When I first saw The Puppet Show designs, I hesitated alot before placing an order ..
To be frank, as much as I'd love to encourage local brands and this brand in specific being from UAE you can say I'm quite skeptic ..
 
أول ماسمعت عن ماركة ذا بابت شو الاماراتية وايد عجبتني واشتطيت
وتقدرون تقولون تناسيت الخوف اللي فيني، على كثر ما أحب أشجع الصناعات المحلية وايد اتردد خوفا انه يوصلني وانصدم فيه
 
 
All of the above was gone, once I recieved my package since it was professionaly packaged aside from being well priced..
The finishing was beyond perfect, as well as the fitting of the jacket..
I blogged about the this brand previously which you can view
 
أشوه طلع هالخوف من غير مبرر ، لما وصلني الاوردر مغلف بطريقة مرتبة وتفتح النفس وسعره كان مناسب جدا مع الشحن
الفينشنج او اللمسات النهائية كانت نظيفة وايد و القياس كان مضبوط
كتبت عن هالبراند من قبل أول ماطلبت منها قبل لايوصلني الاوردر




 
Wore this outfit, couple of times already but planning to incorporate the jacket into different looks as well..
Perhaps a maxi skirt? Well see about that..
لبست هالجاكيت جم مرة ، قلت بجرب ألبسه مع تنورة ماكسي يمكن؟
كلش مو نوعي ألبس الشي مرة وحدة ، حلو لما ينلبس كذا مرة بأكثر من طريقة












 
Outfit Details:
Pants : Topshop
Blouse : Zara
Handbag : Phillip Lim
Shoes : Marni
Rings: YSL, Forever21, BCBG MaxAzria
 
 
My mother's comment about my shoes, that they could replace a tank..
Super comfy and light nonetheless !
Yet my endless search for basic black wedges is still going..
التعليقات على الجوتي وانتوا بكرامة ماتخلص اللي يقول دبابة واللي يقولي عمارة أم طابقين، بس مريح وخفيف وهذا المهم
وللحين قاعدة ادور جوتي اسود من هالنمونة
