. . . the thoughts of a fashion-loving british arab.
ooooo yes yes yes!!! i agree!! totally on ur 5 essentials. great idea. ima do one too. :P im such a copy cat. dont mind me lol. but ur defo right on the your 5. i actually had a discussion with both ma daddy and boy over this week about clothing. lol. apparently i wear black to much and my clothes r old. lol. so i went throught the closet getting rid of basicly everything and now i need to get some essentials. lol they were right. I have been wearing the same clothes for too long. most of it was years old. it was cute but just way old. i geuss they were sick of it. LOL. my mum stuggest the white jeans. n i've got a white jean jacket already. I've plenty of summer hijabs. I have a skirt but it is also like 3 years old but i dont think one more summer will hurt it. lol. but the maxi is a good idea and at least one top for the jeans. lol
hi sis you really have a great blog here along with great syle mashallah :) i have some questions if you could help me. first, where can i find cheap hijabs and abayas online? secondly, can you please explain how you get your hijab to cover your chest?? my scarfs must be too small or something? thank you so much!!!
anon: hey, glad you like the blog! i quite like http://www.2hijab.com/ you can get some cheap plain hijabs there but they have a wide selection of others. check out http://www.hijabstoreonline.com/ for some good bargins too. also remember you dont have to buy your hijabs from hijab shops, high street shops like h&m do great pashminas which work well as shaylas also primark do super cheap shayla style scarfs. about the covering of the cheast, a shayla is good for this, i will find some tutorial videos insha'Allah and post them soon. hope that helps, salam Zaenab xx
its winter here!
thank you zaenab i will check out those sites now :)-AA
it' me again ;) so i was checking out 2hijab.com and had a ?. how do i know which ones are shaylas?? i just want to make sure the hijabs i buy are large enough...the ones dh bought me a while ago are too small for the kind of coverage i want. thanks in advance :)
hi anon, if you click on the 'more' button underneath the photo of the hijab you want, it will take you to a page that tells you the measurement of the hijab. the ones that are simply called '... hijab' are the shaylas eg. 'floral hijab'. you will also be able to tell if its a shayla from the measurements (a shayla will be longer than it is wide) hope this helps :Dzaenab xx
