Maximize Your Closet – Ethnic Wear! FT. Doch

Hey hey!

Hope you’re doing well and enjoying the sunny summer weather ☀️

I always get asked how I come up with so many outfit combinations and everyone thinks I have 8706532 articles of clothing. I am not *always* shopping, as per popular belief hehe. I do have a closetful of clothing, alhamdulilah, and I am always thinking of new ways to wear the clothes I already have. I think that’s the essence of fashion. Especially as I’ve been getting this feedback recently, I thought I’d make this blogpost about how to expand your wardrobe!

When it comes to ethnic wear, it can be difficult to re-wear the same outfit in a short period of time. The eye-catching intricate glitz and glamour that accompanies ethnic wear can even be difficult to style in ways other than its original form. But, if you’re going to spend a good amount of money on such pieces, you want to wear them in more than one way!

OOTD – Ombré Attire

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all doing well!

Okay, I know, I’m a terrible person 🙊 I am SO off my game! My posting schedule is basically nonexistent because #HHSundays aren’t even a thing anymore! I’m really sorry! I started summer school last week so things have just been really busy with assignments and projects! But, to make up for it, I’m doing 2 blogposts this week. The much awaited #HH Spring post is coming, sooner rather than later inshallah! So definitely stay tuned!

Before I begin, Congratulations to you all on the Birth Anniversary of the Grandson of the Holy Prophet, Imam Hussain (AS), and the son of Imam Ali, Hazrat Abbas (AS), and then the son of Imam Hussain, Imam Zainul Abideen (AS)! I cannot believe it’s already Shabaan and these 3 holy nights are upon us!
In celebration of these blessed events, I thought I’d just share a quick outfit with you all!

I actually ordered this outfit online from Falak-E-Noor Boutique! I found them on Instagram, and unfortunately their account is down for some reason, but I was pleasantly surprised with the great service! The outfit arrived exactly how it appeared in the picture and the stitching was also really great. It fit perfectly!

Winter Style Tips!

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all doing well! Hope you enjoyed your long weekend and Family Day (if Canadian) or President’s Day (if American), or regular old Monday (if from anywhere else LOL)!
Sorry my post is late, but had a fun family dinner last night so didn’t get around to posting!
But, HAPPY FAMILY DAY to you all! Thank you all for being my HH family and the best supporters ever 💕💕

Now I know in the Winter, it can be really tough to wear a cute outfit when all you can think about is not freezing in the -20 ºC weather (may fluctuate with windchill 😪). Or you may have a nice outfit, but it’s buried under your huge winter jacket and cannot be appreciated. Then, we end up being lazy with our style and just live in a hoodie and sweatpants (am I right) 🙋

Often in my regular blogposts, I incorporate Style Tips, which are a general rule of thumb that can be applied to everyday dressing. Hence, I thought I’d make a blogpost just for Style Tips I follow in the winter season! This blogpost idea was suggested by my girl Zahra Maryam, so thank you once again!
Like I’ve mentioned before, if you have any blogpost ideas you’d like to see on HH, please shoot me a message or leave me a comment and I will definitely try to make a blogpost about it inshallah!

Alright, let’s begin!

HOW TO STYLE: Chiffon Hijabs FT: Voile Chic

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all doing well! It’s been a busy week and weekend, and next week will be the same! The assignments are loading up and midterms are approaching. I swear we JUST got back to school 😭 I’m ready for another vacation, to be honest 😅

Today, I have an exciting blogpost, as always of course!
I’ve always seen girls rocking chiffon hijabs and I wish I could do the same! Every time I tried, I found them too slippery and I was so self-conscious about how they looked. I think my constant fussing and ‘fixing’ of my hijab actually messed up the style even more!

When I found out that Voile Chic has extra smooth chiffon hijabs,  I mustered up some courage to order some! They have the most stunning colours, so it was so hard to say no. I took a leap of faith and I’m so glad I did! I really loved the two hijabs I ordered! They’re so classy and I was pleasantly surprised with how easy they are to style. And of course, the quality is amazing as well!

Voile Chic is a Canadian hijab company which sells a variety of hijabs and the related essentials! They have a variety of fabrics, but I would definitely say they are known for their Chiffon and Jersey hijabs! Their hijabs are so classy, and the colours are pretty and sophisticated. And the owner is really kind, which makes a huge impact on the customers!!

Wardrobe Fashion House 1-year Anniversary

Hello lovelies!

I hope you are all doing well!

It’s summer vacation, even if it doesn’t feel like it just yet, I’m still enjoying every second of it!

So when I found out Wardrobe Fashion House was having their 1-year anniversary sale this weekend (May 1-3), I definitely wanted to go check it out and kick off summer with one of my favourite activities – Shopping 🙂

Wardrobe Fashion House is a Pakistani fashion boutique located in Brampton, Ontario. They have outfits for every occasion from unstitched outfits, simple lawn cotton, to party wear, and even some more heavy formal wear. They also have some outfits for men and you can finish off your look with their stunning jewellery and purses! I’ve been shopping at Wardrobe Fashion House from around the time it opened and honestly, their collections just get better and better! Their decor is really nice too and everything is very elegant and colourful!

They kindly invited me to scope out their anniversary sale for you all and hence, I got a sneak peek at all their great deals and even had the chance to wear some of their outfits to show you all! And when they say sale, they mean SALE because EVERYTHING in the store is on sale! There’s so many deals going on, even for the new arrivals! There’s many different sales racks such as 40%, 50%, and a $150 outfit rack. This sale is so good that some outfits on the 40% and 50% racks actually end up being less than $100! So you’re bound to get a great deal!

They are also launching their bridal collection so that’s super exciting too! They’re going to have refreshments and hors d’oeuvres and every day, there will be a Lucky Draw to win a Party Wear Suit valued at $250!

I think Wardrobe Fashion House made a mistake of inviting me early because I already picked up some outfits hehe 🙂 But don’t worry, I didn’t buy the entire store (I was about to though LOL), so I left some of my favourites for you all 😉

Now here are some of their outfits modelled by yours truly! I had the chance to wear some outfits of different styles so you can see the various outfits Wardrobe Fashion House has that can work for the many occasions of life!

Outfit 1: Casual Lawn

This outfit is a cotton kurti with a matching dupatta (shawl) that has a beautiful grey, pink, orange, and cream colour combination. The fitting of this top was so perfect and the embroidery on the front was very classy and pretty.
I also wore a gold and pink bangle that is the perfect touch to this outfit!

IMG_2842
This bangle is so elegant and gorgeous!

IMG_2833 IMG_2824IMG_2838Outfit 2: Party Wear

This outfit is an outfit I didn’t expect myself to like so much! This gold ensemble with green, orange, and pink floral embroidery has it’s own flair. The very wide palazzo pants makes this outfit very unique.

IMG_2846
I love how the orange dupatta (shawl) ties the pops of colour together with the gold tones
IMG_2850
I wore the dupatta as my hijab and tried to strike a bollywood pose LOL

IMG_2855 IMG_2854 Outfit 3: Formal Wear

This look is my favourite! This outfit is quite heavy and hence, I sadly had to say goodbye to it (One of you better grab it and give it a good home LOL). This gorgeous navy/royal blue outfit with gold embroidery and a hint of teal is just perfect. This outfit has a layered look and looks quite like an indian maxi dress 🙂 I paired it with a cream shimmery hijab to accent the classy gold detailing.

Even the back is super pretty!
IMG_2799
Would it really be a blogpost without the classic HH pose?! This signature pose completes my posts :’)

IMG_2810 IMG_2804 IMG_2801 Outfit 4: Sari

Lastly, I got to wear a sari! YAY, I love saris but I’ve never worn one to an actual event. I just sometimes try them on at home for fun LOL. I did however wear a sari to my school’s Culturefest so I enjoyed reliving my sari outfit memories :’) I got to wear my beautiful peach and gold sari with a super sparkly and bedazzled clutch that’s perfect for any bridal occasion!

Just a heads-up: I had to be very modest with this look but I just wanted to show you all that Wardrobe Fashion House also has an amazing collection of saris and I really wish I could own them all. Even just lined up on hangers, they just look so beautiful :’)

This clutch is stunning!

OOTD – Glamorous Gown – Featuring Le Trend Boutique

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all doing well and had a great week!

I just had two of my four final exams for first year this week! Talk about stressful! But I now have a week break until my next exam so I thought this would be the perfect time to take a breather! And of course, write a new blogpost 😉

And since I’m delighting in my glory of being half way done all of my exams for this school year, I would love to share an amazing company with you all! Le Trend Boutique!
Le Trend Boutique is based in my hometown of Orlando, Florida and sells beautiful Indian ethnic wear, perfect for bridal and party wear! You can even customize the outfit of your dreams! Trust me, I’ve seen many bridal and formal outfits that were custom designed by clients, and Farzana, the owner and mastermind behind Le Trend Boutique, definitely does not disappoint! Hence, I’m super excited to be wearing one of her outfits and sharing it with you!

You can check out their selection on Facebook (Le Trend Boutique Facebook Page) and Instagram (Le Trend Boutique Instagram Account)!

I wore this beautiful cream outfit with blue and green lace. And as you all know, I adore my lace! The gold and royal blue embroidery on the top half and sleeves is so elegant and adds the ideal amount of glamour to the look. But my absolute favourite part of this outfit is that it actually looks like a blouse and a maxi skirt! This outfit epitomizes the perfect fusion of East and West! And I definitely had fun with the super flowy lace bottom of the outfit! I twirled around in this outfit at least 10 times, no lie! I just added a gold belt at the waist line to bring the outfit together! I finished the look with a dusty gold clutch and my favourite royal blue Dara Boutique Hijab.

Shoutout to my brother who took all of these lovely pictures for me :))
