Fashion. Hijab. Modern. Modest.
Four words that I’ve been hearing, seeing and reading over and over again.
Whether it’s on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or YouTube, social networking has become an outlet for young Muslims to show and share their identity with others literally all across the globe, making themselves a mini celebrity.
Everyone is doing it. The shy girl from junior high, the quiet kid from your high-school; they’re taking a talent they have and are hash tagging away.

You name it, it’s being done and I love it. I’ve become a victim to it and I do not feel ashamed one bit. Why? Because I never thought that as a twenty four year old girl from BROOOKLLLYNNNN I would be viewing pictures of a fashionista in Turkey or London or even Indonesia who has a style just like me for tips and ideas.
Growing up, I was very fortunate to have a mother that sewed clothes. She wasn’t and still isn’t your average seamstress. She’s a kick butt one that can literally do a replica of that boutique dress you spent two hundred dollars on for half the price. My mom often creates and executes her ideas and then bam, I have myself a new tailored to fit outfit that I can rock on a Tuesday just because. I still am spoiled when it comes to this and I blame her for it every day.
My love (some would call it an obsession) for fashion, color, fabrics and patterns increases daily. The teenage girl I once was that stared at window displays and magazines now finds easier ways to change up a simple shirt by drawing, cutting, pasting, or simply adding on an accessory making something my creation.
Now you might be rolling your eyes saying “Oh, another hijabi blogger”, but my blog will be different. My blog will show my take on fashion. My do’s or don’t’s. My ideas. My work.
So for the cliché closing statement, I hope you all enjoy whats to come and stay tuned for a fun fashion filled blog!
