Peace be upon you my friends!
I'm excited to share this collaboration with you guys featuring Euphoria, an innovative brand featuring modest & trendy attire. At Euphoria, each garment is created by hand ensuring the utmost detail and love to provide you with a masterpiece you will cherish.
As much as I love my skinny jeans, I equally love the idea of extra material that adds the perfect amount of flow and instant sophistication to a garment. Although this is just a simple kaftan, I felt like a million bucks in it! It flowed so beautifully! This is the first time I was able to capture multiple amazing pictures (minus natural daylight) without the frustration of bad shots, woohoo!
Kaftan c/o - Euphoria
Ankle Booties - Agaci but exact same here
It was freezing in Turkey so I swapped out my initial idea of heels for a pair of high-ankle booties. I think it worked well with dressing the kaftan down a bit but I will definitely re-wear it with heels next time, inshAllah. I felt very over-the-top in it and it's amazing how a garment could deliver such a feeling!

Have a lovely lovely Wednesday ladies!

On day two during our Turkey stay we visited the Blue Mosque & later the Grand Bazaar.
I wasn't able to capture a picture that would do justice to the Blue Mosque so here is one of my favorite shots which can be found on Google. When viewed with the naked eye, The Mosque is completely breathtaking & without a doubt, it will leave you in awe. Adorned with intricate details all around, it's one of the most complex and beautiful architectures to exists in the world today.
The sound of prayer can be heard echoing through every minaret drawing in serenity and a sense of peace around the area. We were fortunate enough to catch Asr prayer in congregation as the mosque tends to get very packed during prayer. During prayer time, the mosque is closed off to visitors.
After prayers, I wanted to capture a few photos in the Blue Mosque's courtyard:
Excuse my stiff stature as it was freezing and I couldn't keep still, hehe.
Booties - Agaci but exact same here
Hijab - Cover33
And I also wore my hijab in a bow style - can you tell?! I love how it looked with the trench coat but I did I feet like this outfit belonged in Paris haha.
How's everyone enjoying December? I love this time of the year so I hope everyone's having a good one!

Inside Hagia Sophia which used to be a Church which later was turned into a Mosque. After some time, it was decided to turn the place into a Museum. You can find pictures of Mary and Jesus throughout the Museum along with inscriptions/verses from the Quran.
Yummy Turkish food which was stuffed with mixed meat, spices, and cheese.
Posing outside the Topkapi Palace. So much to see here as it was very vast and had so many sections and rooms with many different purposes. The guide tour gave us a historical background and it was surreal to see how the Ottomans live and ruled during their Era.
Turkey was flooded with cats but I captured the perfect moment of my husband stroking a cutely peaceful one!

I was recently contacted by Iman clothing, a line that specializes in graphic and calligraphy writing sweatshirts/t-shirts with eccentric designs. What I learned and immediately fell in love about this company was ALL profits are 100% donated! Basically every dollar you spend goes towards helping repair, replenish, and revive a suffering country. It's so easy to forget about the less fortunate as we are buried busy in our daily lives. This company has set it's main focus on helping those exact people we forget. I can't pass up a cause like this and I would highly recommend checking them out!
Here I'm rocking the 'Palestine' Sweatshirt in Arabic:

Oh my, I am absolutely obsessed with how this dress fit and graced me! It flowed so beautifully regardless of what I was doing. Made of woven fabric, the overall material was soft to the touch and had some room for stretching. The woven fabric also eliminates the hassle of wearing an under-slip as it is not see through at all. And lastly, it has sleeves! *Drumroll please* I love love sleeves in my dresses so your hands have the option of being tucked away, woohoo.
Dress - C/o DIR Fashion
My favorite detail about this dress was the cowl neck. It's so versatile, you can wear it over the head for that extra drama or leave it as is, simply around the neck. I truly felt like the modern Red Riding hood in this beautiful dress!
Be sure to checkout DIR Fashion for more colors and other styles!
Did you guys love this style? Would you wear it? I would love to know!
