title: Just call me crazy!
Yea this is my second post tonight.Basically because I have a lot going on in my mind.With the current problem at the back of my head,there are loads more actually.
Anyway everytime I go shopping for Muslimah stuff,I go crazy!!Like seriously CRAZY!!It's like I have a fetish with clothes,scarves,make-ups and accessories. Recently in Singapore(not so recant luh actually)more and more women are wearing hijab!That's not the only reason why I blog this.I notice that the recent trend is to wear erm..shawl? and this Abu-Nafkha-style-Hijab; which in layman's term means there's a huge bulge under your scarve.Creating an impression that you have very thick hair when actually...NOT.
Hah!For a minute there I was fooled by this ladies but now I know the trick and I'm gonna share it with you ;)
Ouhk now you wanna know the trick?
It's simple! Just get a large floral hairclip like below...
.....and clip it on to your bonjot(hair bun).If this doesn't work, you can always get those fake buns which they sell in hair accessories stores like Chamelon.
This too I read from another Muslimah's blog: http://www.hijabstyle.co.uk/
She's great!I swear!Go check her out.Ouh and she too recently blog about Maysaa.Currently a growing Muslimah fashion brand.Homebased at UK.Quite pricey truthfully but design are authentic.She has the same idea as I do. Her designs doesn't focus on Muslimah only(target market) but also others who does not wear hijab but loves conservative clothing.You get what I mean?Nvm....
Anyway here is her blog.I favourite-d her longggg ago and has been waiting for her line to come out!She was even being featured in Arab BBC!! :O Cool or what! : http://www.stylecovered.com/
I just loveee this picture!
Below is the picture of the lady herself, Hana Tajima-Simpson.A mix of Japanese and English.Beautiful ain't she?You should check her out in Chictopia.Unfotch I've forgotten what's her link for that....
Don't get me wrong;I'm not stalking her.I just love her style.She inspires me in a way wear it make me wanna wear hijab more and more.
Anyway I was Google-ing images of fellow sisters wearing hijab and how they dress(basically yea this is where I get all my inspirations from).Interesting interesting styles from all over the world!However let's focus on the "renowned" society in Dubai ^.^
The gorgoues Abayas you are about to witness are by Homa Qamar. :)
