Noon by Noor showed the fall/winter 2014/2015 collection at New York Fashion Week on Monday, February 10, 2014. The collection offered warm knits, shoulder-less coats, touches of silver sequins, lights colors, splashes of yellow and soft grey. The fabrics were soft; evoking a cozy feeling on cold fall or winter night.

Noon by Noor combines sheer fabrics, beadwork, soft fringe, supple wools and soft fabrics to create an inviting collection for the cool weather season. I fell in love with the grey pencil gown which featured sheer panels and beadwork. I also adored the purple hues! What is your favorite look from the Noon by Noor fall/winter 2014/2015 runway?

Dolce & Gabbana Lilac nail polish review

Dolce & Gabbana’s “Lilac” nail polish is a beautiful deep lavender hue which first came out in summer 2012 as part of Dolce & Gabbana’s “Bouquet Collection.” I originally purchased the “Mint” nail polish from the “Bouquet Collection” but have been eyeing the “Lilac” color ever since; and now I am excited to test it out!

“Lilac” by Dolce & Gabbana is a beautiful color which, despite having been introduced back in 2012, is perfect for spring/summer 2014. Spring 2014 is all about vivid colors and saturated pastels. “Lilac” fits perfectly into both color categories and blends well with both color palettes making it an easy color to wear everyday during the upcoming warm weather season. With “Radiant Orchid” being the color of the year, shades of pink and purple are perfect hues to integrate into anyone’s spring/summer 2014 wardrobe since they all play well together and blend into other colors from the season which include shades of blue, yellow and green. 

I tested out Dolce & Gabbana’s “Lilac” by wearing it on my trip to New York Fashion Week. I wore “Lilac” with two coats of color, one base coat and no top coat. The nail polish was very long lasting and took me through my trip without chipping! Love that!

As with other nail polishes from Dolce & Gabbana’s “Bouquet Collection,” “Lilac” is matte and offers an understated nail polish look. There is even a slight sparkling undertone to the nail polish. Love it!

Dolce & Gabbana’s “Lilac” nail polish is priced at $24 and can be found online here and here.
