Grey Drapes

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

I have been on a short hiatus pre Ramadan for a teeny tiny "me-time" break. I like to give myself some time to wrap my head around the coming holy month and to mentally prepare for the month long event. Alhumdulillah I have been blessed with the opportunity to experience the spiritual journey one more year. 
But now that there is literally one day separating me from Ramadan I thought I would dive right back into blogging. I have been experimenting with different styles and looks to suit my years. I was discussing the issue of dressing for ones age with my sister and we both agreed that it is important to really take it into consideration when buying clothing. Having said that I also think that you are only as old as you feel and so if you feel better and more comfortable in more youthful clothing then I think that will help you pull it off. 

So as I was saying I have been experimenting a bit and so I thought I would make myself a flowy shawl/poncho type garment using excellent fabric. I found this gorgeous wool blend material that is thin but because if it's natural fibres keeps me so warm it is crazy. I kept the edges raw to give it a funky edge.
I also bought a black wool blend as well as charcoal grey so I am in the process of turning them into a shawl so I can wear them over clothes that are too fitted to wear alone. I simply throw the shawl over my shoulders and I am ready to go. I can't believe I never thought of making these earlier.
