Eid Look 1 : Abaya Inspiration

Abaya is always an elegant choice for Eid. Typically, for Eid, ladies opt for the most elaborate bling, bling abaya. Yet, because we will be celebrating Eid in the United States during the summer I am inspired by lighter styles of abaya this year.

My first choice is this gold, embroidered Faryat abaya from East Essence**:

.

As far as hijab I think it would look great with either a similarly toned gold hijab or a sheer black hijab with gold accents both from Hijab Store Online:

Black IS my favorite color but in order to do it with a softer, summer edge I chose the boho inspired blue embroidery of this Maassama abaya also from East Essence:

You can either play up the color by wearing a bold blue hijab or go for classic elegance with a black sequined hijab:

**Side Note: I think East Essence is one of the best choices for plus size Muslimahs. You can get a custom fit abaya for a reasonable price. When combining the cost of shipping in addition to customization you still end up with a bargain : )

Modest Find: Tie Dye Maxi Skirt

I adore this tie dye maxi skirt from Evans.

I think it would be great paired with a black tank, jean jacket, burgundy scarf for color, peep toe black wedges (love those!) and a flash of silver bangles. How would you style it?

About the fabulous My Hijab Plus and Hijabi and the City who are representing for us +plus+ Muslimahs!

These two Aussie sisters are beautiful (Masha’Allah) and showing us that all it takes is a lil’ courage and style to make it work!

I actually have read Houda’s blogs off and on for a few years; but, I was so happy to return to her site and see that she is now doing fashion blogging and inspiring us with some of her ootd (outfits of the day). Check her out styling a basic black maxi to make it suitable for Ramadan taraweeh prayers.


(Isn’t that pink bow necklace against her hijab simply gorgeous!)

Love this cropped mustard jacket

I also adore the sophisticated and bold looks of Edibe of Hijabi and the City

Swim Cover ups = Awesome Spring/Summer Dresses

I fell in love the moment I saw it. A black and white print dress that hit right above the knee. I could see myself in it-it was just my style. My niece nodded with approval. I checked the price- it was under $25! Then I read the tag it read SWIMWEAR.

Well, one girl’s swim cover up is another chica’s gorgeous spring dress. Swim cover ups are perfect for the modest girl who is in desperate need of breathable fabrics as the weather warms.

This is the Avenue swim cover up I fell for last week. Believe me it is incredible on. While the light fabric makes it necessary to wear a tank underneath- it works well in a light layered look. In the dressing room I paired it with a lightweight blazer and jeans. Do you like??? : )

Here are two more Avenue swim cover ups-also under $25 bucks!

I also dig this dress/swim cover up from Monif C. Not too shabby at under $60.
