Barakah Women - Modern | Sophisticated | Modest

Saturday, December 20, 2014

Baraka - an Australia designed and owned company catering to both hijabi and non hijabi women who appreciate modesty AND classic style. It's minimalist style ethos really translates well for the contemporary modest woman as it allows for style "wiggle room". Whether you want to keep things simple and sleek or add your little touches of jewellery and layering here and there, Baraka clothing gives you the opportunity to make up your own mind.

Here I am wearing the double breasted linen jacket which is designed to be oversized so you can button it up and wear it as a tunic or leave it open. It's gorgeous tone really does appeal to my recent obsession with neautrals and the fact that it's 100% linen gives it a 5 star rating. 


If you are like me and love oversized tops then you will definitely love this jacket. Just make sure your bottoms are slim and not obnoxiously elaborate. 



You can buy this jacket and many more stunning pieces from the Baraka website. Go directly to the DB Linen Jacket, visit their Instagram page and visit their FB.

Heart Hijab - Cheapest Hijab Prices Online

Friday, December 12, 2014

Salam and hello,
I have a super special feature for you today. Why super special? Well once you see the prices of these hijabs you will immediately understand. 
I was recently sent a huge package of hijabs by the generous company Heart Hijab. They stock a massive range of scarves in a multitude of colours (over 40 to choose from), fabrics and finishes. When I was in the process of choosing the hijabs for review purposes I was literally on their website for two days trying to decide.

Heart Hijab prices are very low, possibly the lowest I have seen so far. Maxi hijabs start from £2.90 (that's around $5.50 AU or $4.60 US) and the more luxurious hijabs costs around £5.50 which is still an absolute bargain. 

Heart hijab shipping rates are also very affordable. Here is a list of all shipping options depending on the country you live in:

UK (Next Day*) 1 day Aim Flat Rate. ONLY £1.50UK 
FREE UK DELIVERY ON ORDERS OVER £15 3-5 working days
WITHIN EUROPE 5-7 working days ONLY £3.50 - FLAT RATE 
WITHIN EUROPE (FREE) 5-7 working days FREE Delivery over £50
Canada & USA 5-7 working days ONLY £4.99 - FLAT RATE
Canada & USA (FREE) 5-7 working days Free Delivery over £80 (approx $130)
REST OF THE WORLD 5-7 working daysONLY £4.99 - FLAT RATE

As I was sent so many hijabs it became very difficult to capture them in a photoshoot all in one day, so I set myself a challenge to wear one Heart Hijab hijab daily and then shoot an OOTD with the hijab. This was a much easier and achievable goal as I not only loved the everything they sent me I also chose colours that I knew I would wear and suited my clothing. 

Here is the first of many blogposts (and possibly hijab tutorial on my YouTube channel - link tab above) featuring a Heart Hijab product. Inshallah you enjoy!

Here I am wearing the Heart Hijab Sky blue  plain maxi hijab. The colour is delectable and will suit all skin types. LOVE.


This is my go-to hijab style of late. So effortless and easy to achieve within minutes! 


I styled the hijab with my wide leg jumpsuit, a black maxi jacket and plain strappy heels. I think this look is perfect for work or even out lunch with friends.

Kashkha - Ultimate Femininity

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Salam everyone,
I was recently contacted by the lovely team at Kashkha and asked to style a couple of their pieces. As I was perusing their website looking for that perfect piece I stumbled across this mint stunner and knew it would look absolutely lovely. 

Details: 
This jalabiya features intricate embroidery at its v-neckline, block printing at the end of the skirt, drawstring waist for added definition, and a cute ruffle at the hem to add that extra girly flair. 
The jersey hijab I paired with this jalabiya is also from Kashkha and is simply perfect. Made of very very good quality jersey, it is extra long so styling is easy and the edges are sewn so that you do not have to fold it in to shape it around your face. 


The fabric of this jalabiya is so fine it is perfect for the upcoming Australian summer. So light, so flowy so lovely! 
Note: I did wear a slip underneath the jalabiya to preserve modesty.


I just love the way these two pieces mesh so well together! The deep purple really makes the mint green pop!


Gorgeous block printing and ruffle at the base of the skirt.


Their jersey hijab (which now I want more of!) is embellished with their logo at one corner. Such a lovely touch!


Pretty embroidered goodness!







Guess what you lucky people? There will be a mega sale from 26th of November to the 5th of  December so make sure you go and check them out. You cannot go wrong with a feminine jalabiya as they will always remain on trend and elegant.

The Stripe Shirt Dress by Inayah

Saturday, November 15, 2014

I have been working with Inayah Collection as an affiliate for a very long time. I know for a fact their clothing are modest, stylish, very well made and original. Every collection they come out with is better than the previous one, not only in terms of style, but also modesty and quality. Everything, right down to their black and gold swing tags are class.

I was sent this beautiful Stripe Shirt Dress (which I chose myself) to style and feature on Hijab Revival. I thought this dress had some versatility to it, its innovative cut, sleek lines and stripe made me think of business meetings and power lunches.
But then I realised it could also be worn casually, to a casual breakfast date or even to the beach for a stroll as its soft cotton is so comfortable.

I requested a size large for my size 12 frame, which worked out perfectly. I usually find it very difficult to buy dresses as I am bottom heavy but this dress's fit was on point.
The dress has a set of handy buttons down the front of the chest and makes it perfect for nursing mothers. It also features a very unique flap at the back to add extra coverage to that area. I also loved the fact that it is lined with the softest dove grey lining.

So here is how I styled the piece, one look is more sleek, with a streamlined hijab style and the other more casual with a mint pop of colour and tassels.  I think with a simple change in scarf, shoes and accessories it can certainly change the entire look of the outfit.




 
 The hijab worn here is also from Inayah. Click here to go directly to it.
 




The button up collar allows you to wear short necklaces without revealing and neck. I thought a simple rhinestone necklace would look cute with its soft grey and white tones.






Here I paired the Stripe Shirt Dress with a fun mint green and tassel hijab in a voluminous style, a pair of light wash jeans and neural heels.



A quick thank you to Inayah for also including this absolutely gorgeous gift of halal lollies! As soon as I took these pictures I dug into its sweet and gooey goodness.
Shout out to Adam's Candyland for providing halal lollies and packaging their sweets so beautifully.

Boohoo gets classy!

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

So I have been trolling boohoo.com for a while now and have picked up quite a few goodies here and there. Their styling and quality seems to be getting better and better (think asos) but with really competitive pricing and FREE shipping. Gotta love free shipping!
Also, they are constantly providing a discount code - I checked today and they have another code available. Type in FESTIFUN at checkout to get 25% off.

I recently picked up this little number and I must say it was love at first wear. It is such a flattering dress. They have strategically placed black satin fabric in places that create the illusion of a slimmer frame and the print is perfect to hide any imperfections. It has a split down the front that reaches just below my knee, so I simply popped on some black cotton tights to remedy that situation. Alternatively you could wear some distressed jeans or even a black pencil skirt underneath.
