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.

Abaya Central - Classically Purple

Thursday, October 30, 2014

Salams Everyone,
Inshallah you have all been super duper! 
I love a classic abaya, but my favourite design would be oversized and umbrella cut. These two combined  give the elegant silhouette that I feel suits me most. 
 
Here I am wearing Abaya Central's   abaya called Classically Purple which is both oversized and cut in the umbrella style. It features straight clean lines, high collar for maximum neck coverage, loose sleeves and an attached tie belt at the back. It's block colour is simply gorgeous and resembles a beautiful eggplant purple but with a slightly warm undertone. I teamed this beauty of an abaya with an Abaya Central shawl hijab which has a touch of the same tone within its print so it welded together gorgeously. This hijab is very lightweight which means very easy to wear and perfect for the upcoming Australian summer.
Abaya Central is currently having a sale (up to 40% off) so hurry and save!

I have styled the abaya two ways, one with the belt loosely tied at the back and the other with the belt tied all the way around my waist for added definition. 




Added some sparkly jewels to the otherwise plain neckline. This is why I love plain abayas, as you can add little hints of detail to spice it up.

As you can see here I loosely tied the attached belt at the back to maintain the umbrella shape of he abaya.



Here I have tied the belt all the way around my waist to transform the abaya into more of a maxi dress. It is amazing how a simple alteration to the way you wear the abaya can change its entire look!


I pulled out a bit of the abaya over the belt to make the top half look more "poofy" and voluminous if you get my drift. 


Make sure you go follow Abaya central via InstagramFB, and go and check out their website (I just had a quick peek and saw they have a new collection out involving polka dots and gorgeous overlays of chiffon OMG!)
