Abaya Love

I’ve been so busy, busy, busy with work and life but I have not forgotten about my lovely blog or taken a break from thinking about modest (plus) fashion.

It's getting colder here in the Northeastern United States and I love the layering I can do during this season. It's the perfect season for modest fashion with an abundance of gorgeous scarves, cozy sweaters and swagger-ful boots so I can’t wait to do some winter-inspired posts, Insha’Allah!

Soooo lately I’ve found myself slipping into an abaya whenever I can-for jumuah prayer or Eidul Adha (belated Eid Mubarak <3!)This abaya is calling my name! Although it is black, I love its drama and bling. It’s only $60 and still under $100 if you choose to have it custom made.

What do you think? Is it a bit Elvira-ish? Or do you ❤ the drama?

Carma Koma!

Yes! They’ve done it. Structured pieces. Feminine, yet strong silhouettes.

Ladies, I do believe that Carma Koma is a part of the future of plus size fashion. They have avoided all the cliches of what designers think plus size women should be wearing & have plunged us headlong into a world of sophistication & fun.

I am loving the long tops and tunics. And what they do to black is simply A-MAZING!
See for yourself.

I L-O-V-E this grey tube scarf. Put a full underscarf underneath and yup- that’s some stylish hijab!

The Pant

Bold color and feminine softness.
