Unconventional Amira Hijab Tutorial

We all have those two piece amira hijabs that just sit there in our collection for lazy days. One day, I really wanted a solid brown cotton/jersey hijab to wear so I improvised. I grabbed my brown amira and I came up with this turban style. Hope you like it!

Dress Alterations aka Hijabifying a dress

Hi everyone or anyone!
I've been really busy and neglecting this blog lately, not by choice, but mainly due to my two little boys. I'm so grateful for them but I love my blog and need it to escape the madness, and also have a creative outlet.
Anyway, I wanted to share with you some alterations I made to a dress I wore to a very special person's wedding. When I found out there was going to be a wedding, back in early spring, at first, I was extremely excited. Then I began to worry about what I was going to wear (like any normal girl would). I didn't know what I wanted to wear, but I knew I wanted it to look seamless. I did not want to cover up a dress with a jacket or add sleeves underneath. I wanted a complete look. It came down to about 3 weeks before the wedding when I randomly stumbled upon this dress online. It was a good price, but final sale (sigh). I wasn't sure about the design but I was running out of time so decided to take the risk.

Emmy's 2013

The Emmys were on last night and, of course, the main thing I'm interested in is the dresses. And I have to say, I was definitely left a bit disappointed. It seems like every couple of years there's a fashion lul where nothing looks too different than the previous year. It's kind of expected and a bit  boring. And this was one of those years. So with that said, here were my favorite looks of the night.

Allison Williams in Ralph Lauren

Linda Cardellini in Donna Karan Atelier

Mindy Kaling in George Chakra

Maria Menounus in Zac Posen

Mayim Bialik by Oliver Tolentino Couture

Michelle Dockery in Prada
Okay, so after I've put all my faves together, I noticed a trend. I'm digging the bold rich colors this year. Getting bored of the pastels. My best dressed are Michelle Dockery and Mindy Kaling. These were not my faves at all, but somehow they've grown on me. My favorite thing about Michelle's dress is the bottom where the it's just short enough show off those gorgeous sandals. As far as Mindy's, I like the neckline and it just seems so flattering on her. Looks effortless.

Im back...2013 trends

How long has it been?? Yeah, I don't remember either...
Let's get back into it. Eid is coming up again soon. What are your favorite hijabi trends for the fall?
Here's a few of my faves that could possibly be inspiration for eid outfits as well.

2013 trends

First of all, I'm loving the rich jewel tones. You really don't need much styling, just pair them with any neutral color and they speak for themselves. So luxurious and exquisite.
Colorblocking is another big trend. Just need to be careful where the lines hit so they don't make you look too choppy. I love the sweater above, it's effortless style, my favorite!
Notice a plaid comeback? Don't like all plaid prints but I am liking this plaid shirt dress. I like that the fabric is not so stiff looking. It wouldn't be so heavy with pants underneath. I've noticed shirt dresses that are cut a bit shorter on the sides looks more flattering with pants.
Another big thing is the military inspired look. It can look too tough at times, so make sure to keep those feminine touches.
Thanks for reading!
