Where’d You Get That?!? Hijabs!

Hello Hello!

I hope you are all doing well! I can’t believe it’s already been over a week since the blessed month of Ramadhan has started! I hope everyone’s in their routine and is at ease with the long summer fasts, and I also pray that our fasts and efforts are accepted inshallah!

So I’m starting a new series on HH, surprise surprise 😅 A friend of mine, Siddiqah, asked me to do a whole post on where I get my hijabs. She was thinking online stores, but I thought I’d extend it to places in the GTA in case my fellow Torontonians wanted to just pick them up instead of ordering online. I actually get this question a lot, it’s one of the most commonly asked.  I also frequently get asked where I get my skirts and maxi dresses from, so I thought, why not make a whole series on it!

HOW TO STYLE: Dainty Jewelry! FT. Azha Workshop

Hey Hey!

I’m really loving this whole 2 blogposts a week! I thought it would be a little much but with some planning and time management, it’s actually really fun! It feels so good to be able to write to you all so often so inshallah this momentum continues!

Today I have a post on how to style dainty jewelry! Personally, with hijab, I feel like it’s hard to wear dainty or delicate jewelry because it really doesn’t show that much. Maybe it’s just me, but I find it a lot easier to just throw on a statement necklace and be done with the accessorizing, only because I know it’ll actually show. So I thought it’d be cool to write about how to style simpler or more subtle pieces.

There are two main Style Tips when working with dainty jewelry:
1) Keep the outfit simple!
I know the jewelry is understated, but a simple outfit actually works better in this situation! Having a rather easy colour palette or even just simple pieces will really help the jewelry shine through and become more of the focus. Too many colours or a big print may easily distract the attention away from the jewelry.
2) Layer up!
With smaller pieces of jewelry, you can totally get away with stacking! Wearing a couple of rings, a small chain necklace, and earrings is not overpowering and the pieces actually compliment each other!

HOW TO STYLE: Little Black (Maxi) Dress (Back to Basics) FT. ModeSTyles

Hiiiii guys (Dina Tokio voice LOL)!

I hope you are all doing well, and if you are amidst exam season, I hope those are going well! My first exam is Friday and I finish exams next week! Sorry for the delay with this blogpost, it’s just been super busy these past couple of days.

If you’ve been here for a while, you’ll know about my How to Style series! You might also know that HTS posts are actually one of my favourite blogposts to write! I find them helpful to myself, so I really enjoy it! As my style is transitioning to more basic pieces, I really wanted to show how I style my wardrobe essentials. So an off-shooting from the How To Style series is the Back to Basics stream! Back to Basics will feature my wardrobe staples, including a simple black maxi dress in this post! I’m so excited for upcoming posts inshallah 🙉

Ahh the Little Black Dress! Known to be a staple in a woman’s wardrobe. In this case, it’s a Little Black (Maxi) Dress! They’re super easy and essential in my opinion, and can be dressed up or down to fit the occasion. Maxi dresses in general are very convenient to just throw on, and black ones especially are pretty awesome. I’m wearing a simple straight cut black maxi from H&M in all of the pictures!
