Monochromatic : Black & White

Winter is the best time to play with monochromatic looks, and what better than the classic black and white? There’s a reason why it’s one of the most popular color combinations; it’s classic, edgy, and very flattering. Another favorite winter piece is the furry vest. It can be hard finding the perfect one though because fur pieces can look tacky and overdone a lot of the times. I got my hands on what is now my favorite fur vest (it actually a cardigan #win), which is a mixture of a wool blend. I love how it’s a two-tone mixture of white and black, and it has sleeves! The fur/wool is the perfect texture and doesn’t look messy.

Maroon PFH Dress Restocked!

It’s one size fits all and has a train that is to DIE for. You can wear it with a belt for a more fitted look or rock the feminine flowy vibe. It’s a showstopper. And can we talk about the color? It’s the prettiest shade of maroon; I don’t own any other dress in this shade so it’ll definitely add a pop of color to your wardrobe. It’s the perfect shade for fall, and if you’re used to not wearing color or always wear black then you NEED this dress. It’s available for purchase for $99 (originally $200). As usual, I only restock a few at a time so drop a comment below if you’re interested in purchasing it or email me at getPFH@gmail.com. Once we sell out it’s gone!

Favorite Fashion Finds in Morocco

Ok I saved the best for last. I promised you in my last post that I’d dedicate a post to showing you my favorite PFH gowns from the wedding I attended in Casablanca. When I say that I was in PFH HEAVEN, I am not exaggerating. Every gown was nicer than the next, and best of all there were no two girls wearing the exact gown because all the dresses were custom made. That’s usually what Moroccan women do when they attend a wedding. I loved the rich velvet fabrics, intricate detailing, pearl and crystal embellishments, and the flow of the most gorgeous chiffon fabric I’ve ever seen. Next time I’m in Morocco, I’m definitely getting one made. But for now let us relish in these stunning couture masterpiece

Last Stop in Morocco : Casablanca

Our last stop in Morocco was in the beautiful and biggest city of Casablanca. Located on the northwestern part of the country right off of the Atlantic Ocean. Casa is where you find the headquarters of companies and corporations, so it’s a much more modern city. I looooved it! Like I said, I loved every city because each stop was so unique.

Next stop: Meknes & Rabat

Next stop was Meknes, which is located in the Northern part of Morocco. It is a beautiful bustling city, and was once the capitol of Morocco. I couldn’t get over the beautiful Moroccan furniture and intricate designs in the homes, especially the mosaic tiles that were reminiscent of Andalusia Spain. My favorite was the colorful Arabian furniture pieces and backdrops. It was eye candy from left to right.

Fashion in Fez Part II : Infinite Abaya

Let me tell you about my first and favorite Infinite Abaya purchase that I debuted in Morocco! I purchased the black kimono with lace trim down the front from the 2nd Annual PFH Trunk Show in Irvine back in September. There were two options, either lace trimmings around the cuffs OR down the front. I couldn’t decide which one I wanted because I loved the combination of both so much, so Infinite Abaya graciously offered to do a custom order for me with lace on the sleeves and down the middle. It is one of my FAV pieces ever!

{{ Moroccan Cuisine }}

The first course starts off with soup, which is generally Harira, a tomato based soup full of herbs, vegetables, and meat. Click here for an authentic Harira recipe. Then for the second course you have a bunch of different mezzes, which are small appetizer-like dishes meant to be eaten with bread usually. My favorite was a popular eggplant puree dish called Za’look and a potato with raisins dish. Click here for the recipe. Of the main highlights were the fresh Moroccan olives soaked in spices overnight that were absolutely to die for!!! I know I’m getting too excited, it’s ok.

Fashion in Fez

Now for some fashions in Fez! I had a lot of fun putting together my outfits for Morocco, though in all honesty I didn’t really know what to expect. I packed with the impression that most of the roads will be bumpy, dusty, unpaved, and not very heel-friendly. That was the case for most of the cities we visited but especially for Fez.

My trip to Morocco: First stop, Fez!

I’m excited to share with you my recent trip to Morocco! It was such a memorable trip alhamdulelah; I definitely returned a new and inspired person with insights I didn’t have before. Morocco has a special place in my family and I’s heart because my father, Sheikh Dr. Hassan El-Yacoubi, may Allah rest his soul, was buried there. He also went to law school there, so he has dear friends throughout the country.
