POPLOOK - The Reenie Skirt

Sunday, March 15, 2015

I love old school glamour. I love the way women would take pride in their appearance by spending time and effort to present a more refined version of who they are.
Whenever I have a special occasion I always try to make sure to carefully think out an outfit that will resonate well with the event. 

I was recently invited to a gala dinner held by the Islamic Museum of Australia here in Melbourne. This momentous occasion called for a special sort of outfit. As it was held in a historic ballroom I thought a 1940's style outfit would be fitting so when I saw the Reenie skirt on the POPLOOK website I was smitten. It's classic cut and fabric just screamed glamour and I knew it would be perfect for the night. Made of a thick sateen fabric, it has large pleats all around to create volume and is done up with a zip. It's length was just perfect on me, not too long to look ridiculous but just short enough to see a bit of my shoes. I paired the skirt with a very fine merino wool sweater, a shell pink satin shawl, black peeptoe heels and my favourite accessory of the night a vintage black beaded clutch (which looks like it may be from the 50's). Inshallah you enjoy this post and make sure to go check out the POPLOOK website. All the links aredown below at the end of this post!

This hijab style is my go-to for special occasions. I am not a fan of overly processed hijab looks, pleats and puffs are really not my thing so a simple style using a gorgeous fabric is really all I need to feel glamorous!


Ugghh I can't tell you how much I love this clutch! And I found it in perfect condition!



If you have a special event coming up, a wedding or like me a gala dinner this skirt is honestly perfect.



The large pleats leave a gorgeous voluminous effect around the skirt.


I love how the setting sun created the lovely light effects in these pictures! Subhanallah!
