I like to Dingle-Dangle

I’m realizing now that that when it comes to accessories I have been inspired by two main people for most of my life.

Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink

and my grandmother. It makes perfect sense. Remember in Pretty in Pink when Blaine takes Andy to that terrible party and some chic makes fun of Andy’s pearls? The point is that Andy showed up to that boring-bland party kind of grandmotherly in pearls. Andy’s accessory sense was indeed older lady funky.

Um, it’s definitely not Posh-Spice. But since I was a kid I loved the way older women accessorize. Everytime I visited my grandmother’s house during the summers I would raid her closets- coming back with big necklaces, crocheted hats and oversized handbags.

As a hijabi I find that I resist the cookie cutter aspects of Muslimah style through my accessories and their homage to ❤ Grandma Daisy ❤ and Molly. So you can usually find my hijab accompanied by a little dingle-dangle

The best part- you don’t need a ton of money to find great signature necklaces : )
