EID HIJAB STYLE : ABAYA ADDICT

I know this post is super duper late, but I want to take a moment to say that I pray you all had a beautiful Ramadan and a fabulous Eid. Speaking of fabulous, I received two beautiful abayas from Sister Deanna at www.AbayaAddict.com. She gifted me the gorgeous Snakeskin Solidify Jersey Dress (seen below); and then I ordered the Black Solidify Dress – because who doesn’t need a great fitting, long-sleeved maxi dress? I ended up wearing the black dress with a Zara blazer for Eid, but I love the snake print dress… Check out the image below for how I’d wear it to an Eid party. And visit AbayaAddict.com for some of the prettiest, most flattering abayas you can buy!

This is Kima from We Love Hijab & Muslimette and I have a few things to share with you. But first, did you get what you wanted last year? The job, the relationship, the money, the body? If not, listen up…

Most women make New Year’s resolutions that never make it past the first couple of weeks, days, or even hours after January 1st rolls in. In fact, right now, you may be asking yourself: “What stopped me from getting what I wanted last year?” I know that you want to actually achieve your goals now in 2013, so I’ve created a teleseminar for you that will help you do just that. (Keep reading to find out how you can sign up for f.r.e.e.)

This new teleseminar is called The ART of Success for Sisters. In it you’ll learn:

+ The 3-Step process for getting anything you want, or better

EASY HIJAB STYLE : BLAZERS

Blazers and jackets are perfect for hijabis who seek effortless style. They can add full-on coverage for those days when you’re running errands and don’t want to figure out ‘what to wear’. They can also add a pop of color, print, or texture to basic black abayas and maxi skirts. Check out the blazers above to see what I’ve been window shopping for lately. Which one is your favorite?

Do hijabis or non-hijabis have more problems with hijabs?

A reader on Muslimette.com left an interesting comment today, which reads:

“You’re right – non-muslims don’t have much problem with the hijab. It’s muslim girls and women who are ‘ashamed’ of it in a way. To some people, wearing a hijab is akin to slumming it, like not living up to what life is offering. But we have to face it – this life here is just a transition spot for the true believing Muslim. Sad and such a shame they cannot realize that…” -Z.

I have been wearing hijab since I was about 12 or 13 years-old and I can honestly say that I’ve heard more negative comments about it from Muslim women than from non-Muslims. None of these women actually wore the hijab and their reasons for not doing so range from “the hijab makes my hair fall out” to “I will start wearing hijabs once I’m out of college”… I wouldn’t say that I’ve heard a lot of these comments, but I’ve heard enough of them. On the other hand, I’ve only heard one or two negative comments about hijab from non-Muslims in my entire life (not counting the stupid things that a few people have said in my blog comments).


What about you? Do you agree or disagree with Z’s statement? Have you encountered more Muslim women who dislike the hijab or more non-Muslims who have a problem with it? If possible, please let us know what country you live in so that we can get a feel for what it’s like in different parts of the world.

HIJAB STYLE SPOTLIGHT : FLORAL PANTS

I’m a big fan of the floral-print pants that we’re seeing everywhere right now. If you’re wondering how to wear them without looking too “busy”, just pair the pants with a solid top like the black shirtdress featured above. Check out the links below for more pretty floral pants, and tell me: Would you wear this trend or is it a little “too much” for you?

HIJAB STYLE FINDS : FANCY MAXI SKIRTS

Lately, I’ve been thinking about learning how to sew maxi skirts. I think they’d be pretty easy to make–if I could only figure out how to sew in a straight line (hehe). Since maxi skirts are on my mind, I decided to make a quick post featuring some fancy maxi skirts that would transition perfectly from the winter to spring/summer seasons. Right now, you can wear them with blazers and boots. In the summer time, wear them with casual long-sleeve tees and lightweight wrap cardigans. And of course, top off the look with a pretty hijab. Check out more lovely skirts below.
