Virtues of Dhul-Hijjah

Hi gorgeous peeps!

My Muslim readers, (those who aren't can still read to get a better understanding :) many of us are aware of the fact we will celebrate a second Eid or better yet "the goat Eid" in the next few days but a lot of us have forgotten the significance that follows before this great celebration. 
I've included a link to an amazing article I would recommend sparing 5 minutes and reading. It mentions some of the amazing virtues of worship during these 10 days and what you can do to take part. While others have been privileged to complete Hajj (Pilgrimage), we can take our share by immersing ourselves in a few good deeds and actions:

The Messenger of Allah, upon whom be peace, said:
"There are no other days that are as great as these in the sight of Allah, the Most Sublime. Nor are there any deeds more beloved to Allah then those that are done in these ten days. So increase in tahlil (to say la illaha illallah), takbir (to say allahu akbar) and tahmid (to say alhumdulillah)." [Reported by at-Tabarani in al-Mu'jum al-Kabir].
You can find the article here.

Urban Modesty ~ Eid Inspiration #3

Hi ladies!!! Happy Monday!!!

My last Eid inspiration is featuring the 'Black Lattice Maxi' dress by Urban Modesty! Ever heard of the phrase 'little black dress' and how it's a must in every girls closet? Well I've found the perfect one for the modest-fashionista except ours is not little teheh.

Outfit Details:
Dress c/o - Urban Modesty
Scarf - Cover33
Neck-piece c/o - Mirage by Numra
Bag - Aldo

The fit to this dress was phenomenal, literally fit me like a glove! Although it was pretty fitted, the bottom of the dress had incredible amount of material so it flowed beautifully when I walked. I love that it was a deep black because not only can you wear it several times, you can wear it several different ways. I can't wait to style it again.

Be sure to check out www.urbanmodesty.com and get your order in before Eid! They have plenty of modest long dresses to suit your needs!

A La Mode Collection!

Happy Sunday folks!
How was everyone's weekend? I can't believe the weekend went by so fast, back to hustling tomorrow. I wish I could hit my snooze button for a little longer...
Kimono's are such a trend this Spring/Fall and I think they're the perfect modest staple for this season. You can layer it on or simply wear it over a tee, either way, it serves it's fabulous cover-up purpose. Here I've styled A La Mode (which means "in the style" in French) crotchet cream kimono:

Outfit Details:
Scarf - Cover33
Kimono c/o - A La Mode
Shoes - Samia & Azmay similar here

When I don't have the extra time to shoot for my ootd, my garage servers as the perfect backdrop, LOL. Go ahead and judge me for it but I simply love it! tehehe.

I'm also wearing the Tassel scarf from COVER33's new collection. Be sure to check it out as they're selling out pretty fast. We also have a Eid promotion going on where you can snag 10% off your order by using the code 'EidTreat'. Offer ends 9/29!

Chevron Stripes!

I'm really starting to hate my camera so much now ugh! The quality has been lacking and the pictures come out blurry most of the time, waaah. Can someone suggest a good camera?!

Anyhow, I bought this Chevron print dress and debated for a week if I loved it or if I was over it. I was kind of over it but then I couldn't find anything to wear last minute (does that happen to any of you >_< loll) so I threw it on. Unsatisfied with it's boring look, I decided to add some color by disguising a scarf into a cardigan. Genius right? ;)

Outfit Details:
Chevron Dress - H&M
Bobble scarf- Coming soon to Cover33
Hijab- H&M
