Q&A with Lucky Magazine's Fashion Market Assistant, Noelle Sciacca!

November 25, 2011
I am very excited about this week's Q&A Feature! Today I am showcasing the talented and stylish Noelle from Lucky Magazine! Lucky has always been an incredible magazine to work with. It was one of the first magazines to feature me in "one to watch" when I first launched my brand under the label Deesh (which always had the label Boy Meets Girl under it. My nickname is Deesh(aka Dj Daisy Deesh). The change over of officially naming my company Boy Meets Girl(R) which I had trademarked in 2004 came in 2006 to Boy Meets Girl by Deesh and then 2009 to Boy Meets Girl and bye bye to my nickname Deesh association. It was a branding decision that made the most sense and I am very happy about that. Can talk about that more another time :)) Now onto my feature today ;) Noelle.

Noelle and I  have been working together for a couple of years now and it is always such a great experience. I love Noelle's style and energy, so I thought you should all know about her too :)

Learn more about Noelle below!

1) How would you style your favorite Boy Meets Girl(R) item?
The Voyage Hoodie would look great with a plaid mini skirt and printed blouse. I'd pair the look with heeled booties and of course tights since the temperature is dipping and my legs have already lost all signs of summer.

2) What causes and/or organizations do you support?
The Bowery Mission( http://www.bowery.org/) I've been blessed above and beyond and have a lot to be thankful for. It's so important to remember the people that find themselves in less fortunate circumstances, especially this time of year.

3) What is your favorite part of your job?
I really enjoy the people. By default the girls in my office have become a second family and we always find time to laugh in the middle of a stressful day. I'm also in constant communication with fashion publicists to request samples for photo shoots and view their new collections. Over the years some of them have become my closest friends.

4) What have you learned about the work force that you didn't know in college?
I learned that work experience, a positive attitude, and a drive to succeed are so much more important than the major you declare.

5) What is the hardest part of your job? Highlight one or all that apply!
Letter B!

a. lack of sleep
b. long hours/crammed schedule
c. find a good balance between personal life and work

6) Favorite all time movie quote?
"I may be a beginner at some things but I've got a black belt in shopping!" (Troop Beverly Hills)
I'm not sure if it's my favorite but the movie is a classic and full of good quotes.

7) Favorite thing to do in NYC/or city live in?
Besides shopping I really love going out to eat. Its probably because I cant cook but either way it's an adventure checking out new restaurants. In NYC I can try a new place for every meal every day and still not try them all.

8) If you could live out of the country where would you settle down?
That's easy, Rome! To make ends meet I'd scoop gelato and my husband would play the accordion. After work he'd pick me up on his vespa and take me to a piazza where we'd share a bottle of wine and nutella calzone.

9) What¹s your favorite..
-website? You mean www.luckymag.com isn't the only site?
-book? Sun Stand Still by Steven Furtick- so inspirational!
-gadget? iPhone
-guilty pleasure? Banana bread cake with cream cheese frosting from Billy's Bakery. Have you tried it? You need to!
-midnight snack? Mediterranean flavored terra chips.

10) What¹s been your biggest splurge this season?
Working seasons ahead can mess with a girl. I've been so focused on Spring '12 that I haven't really done much fall shopping. I did buy a grey leopard print Rebecca Taylor skirt at Lucky Shops.

11) What¹s your biggest purchase steal?
I coupled a discount code with a gift certificate to get a pair of Sam Edelman moss green boots for only $50. I've worn them almost every day since!

12) Social Media: Do you have..
