Each week, DFW Style Daily reveals the fashion fixations of our city’s top trendsetters. Today, Laura Noble, PR maven for the stylish Joule Hotel, accepts the challenge.
By day, Laura Noble applies her public relations prowess to downtown’s Joule Hotel, and she chronicles the city’s fashionable set for publications like Modern Luxury. We couldn’t wait to go behind the seams of her sophisticated look. A self-professed magazine nerd and iced tea addict, Noble’s list of obsessions is absolutely one of a kind.
1. American Apparel’s Chiffon Oversized Blouse
Noble loves this versatile blouse ($58) so much she owns it in black, olive, and white. “It’s just the perfect top,” she says. “I wear it over leggings and a tank, tied up as a loose crop top with high-waisted pants, or as a swimsuit cover-up.” Proving she’s truly obsessed, she confessed that she plans to purchase it in nude as well.
2. Assouline Coffee Table Books
Noble explains of her posh picture book fixation, “Having grown up in Dallas but lived in London, L.A., and Milan, I love to travel! Assouline’s travel collection is extensive, and I’m hoping to get a copy of Hotel Stories ($45, from Assouline.com) as the next addition to my personal collection.”
3. Byredo Parfums
For summer, Noble is wearing yummy Pulp from this line of sexy scents. She also adores Byredo’s Oud and Gypsy Water fragrances during cooler months. Shop her favorites at Barneys New York, priced from $135 to $210.
4. Magazines. Many, Many Magazines.
“In my apartment, I have a floor-to-ceiling wall of bookshelves exclusively for my stacks of magazines,” says this compulsive page-turner. “I’m addicted. Always have been. They’re the absolute best escape that you can dive into over and over again.” Her four current favorites are Fantastic Man, i-D, Monocle, and W.
5. Iced Tea from the T Room at Forty Five Ten
The T Room’s famous house iced tea ($3) is a delish mix of china black tea with blackberry, boysenberry, and blueberry. Stop by Forty Five Ten (4510 McKinney Ave., Dallas) to enjoy the chic store’s shopping and sips. Boutique hours are Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., T Room hours are Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
