Mix of hard and soft

So some of you may know I’m quite tall, so finding jackets with sleeves long enough is a challenge. I was able to get this really cool Aztec Biker jacket from here. I love it, the sleeves are long enough for my super long arms lol, Blue is my favorite color and this jacket is versatile and can be worn with pretty much anything. Here I wore it with a dress I got from Louellashop.  I’ve always like mixing the soft of a maxi dress and a hard of a leather or biker jacket.

Winter Wool

Winter is cold, and previously I never liked to wear skirts much. This winter however, I’ve been branching out. Found this wool pleated skirt from http://www.adaraonline.com/collections/skirts. And what better to wear it but with a cable knit sweater from Old Navy. It is from last season, I tried to find it online and couldn’t. The necklace is from sanacollection.tictail.com and the cuff is from avizeh.wix.com/avizeh.  Ombre Hijab from Styled by Zubaidah . Sorry about the unclear pictures, it is so cloudy here, horrible lighting!

Interview with Hijab Trendz- the original blog for muslim women

Hi and Happy Friday woohoo!!

I meant to post this blog sooner but have been so busy, anyhow, I was super excited to do an interview with Hijab trendz. Click Here to read the interview!  Check it out, the Hijab Trendz blog is great!

What the heck is a skirt legging anyway??

Hi guys!

What I found since starting this blog, is that it isn’t just Muslim ladies that want to dress modestly, but women from other faiths as well. Mimumaxi is a company run by two Jewish women who have similar views about fashion and modesty that many in the modest fashion industry have. That just because one wants to hold true to their values, it doesn’t mean that they can’t also express their individuality and be stylish as well.
Ok so back to the skirt legging… so while scouring IG for something cool and innovative to wear I found Mimumaxi and something they referred to as a skirt legging… I went to their website to check it out. They describe it as “the Skirt Leggings are entirely a skirt, but have the “feel” and versatility of a good pair of leggings“… hmmmm ok so I had to try them out and promptly ordered a pair. Below are two different ways that I styled them. The first is a winter look with an oversized sweater and boots. The second could be worn in the spring or fall or really anytime of the year, but with spring approaching, I will probably wear it then and maybe with sandles instead of boots. Let me just say that the skirt legging is exactly how it is described on the website. It is soft and stretchy and I really like it. I have to wear it with a long top though because it is fitted on the hips butt area and since I’m a bit “curvy”, I’m more comfortable with it covered, otherwise it looks just like leggings look when worn with a short top yikes! not for me lol…. anyhow here are my pics… the skirt legging can be found at http://www.mimumaxi.com/#!what-are-skirt-leggings/cooe.

All Black Everything…

I ordered a couple of shirts from fellow blogger girlwithcurves. I love this hi low skater dress, talk about modest, it TOTALLY covers my backside! I paired it with black skirt leggings from the one and only Mimumaxi. Links to these websites are below the pictures. Don’t you LOVE all black though? As much as I love color, I also love black!

Spring is coming….

Happy New Year!!!! It’s 2015, that means spring is right around the corner…. Some trends I’ve seen are bold colors, bold patterns and mixing patterns. That’s IF you are one to follow trends.  Of course you don’t have to follow trends to be stylish, or modest, but it is a fun way to spend the time right? hahaha … anyhow, here are some of my fav picks from designers Valentino, DKNY, DVF, and RL. Can’t afford designer clothes? Who can these days!!! It is easy to find cheaper alternatives. I have two examples of looks similar to two of RL’s spring collection.
