كاريكاتير جاز اسلام تسرد واقع المجتمع النسائي في السعودية

image

من منا يحمل جريدة بهدف قراءة كاريكاتير اليوم فقط؟ للكاريكاتير تأثير لربما أقوى من تحليل نقراءه عن موضوع معين. اُسلوب السخرية والاستهزاء المؤدب هو حقا من احد عادات مجتمعنا وعرفنا دائماً في وقت الرخاء او الشدة ان نقلب آي موضوع جدي ومهم الا موضوع فكاهي ننتسب اليه النكت المضحكة كوسيلة  للترفيه والافصاح عن مشاعر حساسة.

وهذا بالضبط ما تتميز به الفنانة السعوية والرسامة جاز اسلام.

تلقت بداية تعليمها الجامعي في احد جامعات لندن المختصة بالفنون Saint Martin Lane ومن ثم التحقت بالجامعة الامريكية والتي حصلت منها على شهادة في تخصص الاعلام المرئي.

 

عادت الى الوطن وبالتحديد جدة حاملة شهادة في إدارة الاعمال واحلام كبيرة وامل في تغيير نظرة المجتمع فيما يخص المرأة.

ملهمة بحس الموضة والأزياء، تقوم جاز برسم شخصيات تعكس شخصيات موجودة في الواقع بهدف طرح مواضيع معينة ومحاولة معالجتها بطريقة فكاهية وجميلة أيضا تحفز على التفكير والتمعن في الوضع والحالة التي تمر بها المرأة السعودية.

بعض من رسومات جاز ذو طابع جريء جدا وتلقت الكثير من الانتقادات التي تقول انها كانت دافع أقوى لها في ان تستمر الا ان تصل منالها.

اشتهرت جاز ايضا بسلسلة كاريكاتير ظريفة لشخصية محببة الى القلب يدعى سعيد في رمضان.

What’s in your bag? My bag!

Just got back from a long trip to the UK a few weeks and I’m truly missing it now.

This trip was a chance for me to show off a bit of clothes different to what I’d usually wear in Saudi and GCC in general (abaya and leggings and a tankie under). And of course, accessories look different with an outfit other than an abaya rightt?

For most of the days, I had to leave my babies indoors (yup didn’t leave their boxes inside the suitcase) because of the rain 😦

Now that I’m back, back to hunting cool fashionable stuff, I stumbled upon this cool instagram page that sells these Hermes inspired plastic pouch bag that are perfect!

image image image

They look absolutely perfect as a bag and also a great raincoat for your bags – just perfect! Their called no faux official and the handle and lock straps are made of leather in different colors to match your bag or wallet of course!

Considering getting one or two because they are really perfect for light coloured bags they may get damaged rubbing off clothes or abaya.

Check them out on Instagram @nofauxofficial

Pause

Haven’t posted in a while because I’m so unbelievably tired – Ramadan is getting the best of me and I’ve been very drowsy as of late, not to mention lacking inspiration. 

My interests are now shifting to new ones oddly enough and I somehow always find a way to run away from them or pause and put them on hold. 

Enough with the ramblings and cha cha for now! 

Three’s a crowd! Not with Zoe’s it is..

An evening well spent is an one consisting of good food and company. 

Finally I got to reconnect with a beautiful area I had once visited years ago in Bahrain, Al Adliya. 

The Mr. has been avoiding taking me there as it’s infested with our own mankind, folks from my beloved country. 

We arrive, step out in a beautifully hidden gem where tradition meets modern. Quirky cultural and traditional art is splash splashed on the walls of very old houses and buildings.  

Image

After making our quick tour we settled very quietly and nicely at Zoe’s, a place a once remember was beaming with music, laughter and joy. 

It was very quiet, only us at first as most people would just head straight to the lounge area, 

Very subtle, peaceful, mature setting and great staff, a bit keen but nonetheless very great top notch service. 

Image

We started off with white clam chowder soup and spicy potato wedges from the sides, followed by a Margheritta pizza and a yummy wild mushroom risotto with truffles that was just perfect! The risotto was served in a flat pizza plate but who cares it was DIVINE and so good to me. 

Image

Loved this his place, the food, the staff and will definitely drag the Mr. to this place again! 

Love my tummy. 

Accessories overload

So, over accessorising has been a trend for the longest time and doesn’t seem to be fading away anytime soon?

I love my jewels but I feel like it’s getting overboard and losing taste – knuckle rings are cool but I always lose them! Maybe  just careless I don’t know.. But ya I’m still hesitant as to purchase more knuckle rings, ear cuffs, full finger diamond or crystal encrusted sets, Arabic calligraphy jewels and accessories etc.

it’s cool yes but how to choose? So many great international and local designers it makes it so hard to pick something you end up throwing the pile you collected and just walk away. Love to stick to my essential everyday small pieces but here are my top 10 picks in no particular order:

 

Ryan Storer Ear Cuff

Alabbar designs
Image
Arabic calligraphy bangle by Azza Fahmy
Image
Yvonne Lewis stack rings
Image
Eddie Borgo

Apriati trademark by Qirdala

Dagger rings by LeiVanKash

حب bracelets by Charmaleena

Chanel pearl bracelet

Atlas bangles by Tiffany & Co.

 

Hey where did Mickey go?

Image

I remember the days when the Mickey Mouse Club was the coolest thing on the block and how Disney promoted wearing jumpers with Disney’s main characters was the coolest thing ever (only within Disney land premises though) and how excited I was to see mama and papa wearing Mickey and Goofy hats and t-shirts.

 

Fast forward to nearly 25 years and here I am still indulging into this lifestyle that has now hit the fashion world by charm. Yes I didn’t stop wearing Mickey Mouse, Wonder Woman, etc. in the last few years but this year sets its self aside and stand in glory amongst many supporting designers, appraising fans and followings. It’s the year of pop art meets kids fiction. Disney’s idols, the empire of fast food, and even the Arab world idolized the many icons of Arabian desert cultures like the “Oud” bottle and of course not to mention brands exercising on their own heritage and lifestyle like Chanel’s no.5 chanel perfume bottle bag and now D&G announced partnered with Magnum our ice creams are now designer how fancy for our tongues!

I was always told in school that Geography was the only subject that mattered the most because it was a well rounded encompassing subjects that covered everything from science to habitat and human psychology and literature. It’s absolutely astounding to watch how the fashion world and scene as evolved into a subject matter that can be compared to Geography in it’s many benefits and should actually be considered as a subject matter to be taught in schools.

Fashion is fashion and its no longer a luxury that one lives by especially with high street fashion brands such as H&M, Top Shop, and Primark in the UK offering these trends at affordable prices. Its almost fashion like fashion is attempting to synchronize and harmonise everyone’s look at a given period of time.

Now pass me my Mcd fries 😉

Crazy blusher lady

I am definitely no makeup guru, never claimed to be one, and never will be! I am a self-taught self-applied makeup artist if that makes any sense! I started pretty late in my teen years obsessing over eyeliner with it be kohl or liquid (this deserves a dedicated post).

Anyway! on to the subject matter: blushers.

I remember my first ever purchase was a Dior blue monogram makeup compact – yup the tacky one.

Then I upgraded to MAC cream-blend blushers .. I still have an on-off relationship with MAC i’m just not sure .. it makes my skin very grainy?

 

MAC POSEY

 

Then I decided to experiment with the designer beauty brands like Guerlain, YSL, and I must say – although guerlain is pretty moody on my skin, I always find myself running back to it along with MAC so they are my two essential go-to bronzers and blushers.

Nothing comes close to my cheeks secret relationship with NARS – I am yet to find that Tropicana blusher that I think has been discontinued or at least something close to it.

Bottom line is – once a clown, always a clown. I will always forever cherish my bronzers and the way I apply it on to my cheekbones ❤

Charles James who ?

So with the met gala taking place tonight, everyone’s eager to see what the stars will be wearing upon arrival on the red carpet.

As usual I’m always glued to the TV tuned in to E! Live on the red carpet wearing my judging hat anxious to jump out of my couch to snap a “live” picture of my best dressed celeb! 

So here’s watch special and what’s making it all the more exciting for me. This year Charles James gets his own Met Gala for his many achievements in the history of fashion. 

A little bit more on the man… He started off as a hat designer and then moved on to designing gowns which is what he was best known for. His designs extenuated a woman’s body using silks, velvety, and organdy. 

His exhibition “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” will be on until August of this year. 

I think I know where Mr. Posen drives his inspiration from? 

Heres a selection of my favorite gowns!
