so this blog post is all about…wait for it FASHION
yes i am a girl. yes i love clothes.
i also love sparkly things. but this isn’t about jewellery…this is ALL about clothes. mainly dresses…
so let’s get started fellow fashionistas =P
so Friday 15th February i had the pleasure of being invited to Barjis London at Swarovski Crystallized for London Fashion Week. oh yes. i know this woman. as in she’s my friend’s aunty who lives up the road. no lie.
IT WAS AWESOME
HER DESIGNS WERE BEAUTIFUL
AND I LOOKED AMAZING I HAVE TO SAY. i wore this black maxi skirt from Jane Norman with a sequined black top from Mango and a purple scarf from a shop in my local area, the bag i got as a present from my aunty for my 19th birthday =D
and my heels courtesy of my friend Taz…
fatimah is wearing a Barjis Original design…
time for the FASHION SHOW:
i love that dress- the detail so beautiful and elegant.
HOW STUNNING IS THIS??!!! beautiful love the lace detail with gold…
sorry for the crappy picture but you can’t really see the detail on top BUT IT IS BEAUTIFUL I THINK IT’S LIKE A LACE INSERT OR SOMETHING BUT WOWZA
the little detail on the top and the swishy style abaya
i simply love that red skirt!!!
the lovely designer is wearing an abaya (p.s an abaya is an Islamic dress for women)
here’s an interview with Barjis
so yeah it was an awesome evening of course there were plenty more outfits but id dint get a photo of them all.
Alhamdulilah and thanks for the invite =)
okay now for some other designers/people whose style influence mine…
let’s just take a moment…
I REALLY LIKE SPARKLES OKAY
the person that influences my style the most is…
you guessed it (or not) TAYLOR SWIFT
i know she wears a lot of Elie Saab, Oscar de la Renta, Naeem Khan, Ralph Lauren, or J. Mendel.
but obviously i can’t afford any of those dresses
however tis my dream one day when i marry josh and he goes to the Oscars or some other award ceremony i can buy an elie saab or zuhair murad dress and omg
her cute and casual look is the kind i go for
she really likes stripes now
i wouldn’t say i’m OBSESSED…but…
she’s also advertising for KEDS
polka dots and stripes are so her thing and are TOTES ADORBS
oh wait what’s that?
also i have that shirt just saying
okay yeah i am obsessed with Taylor Swift. i think she is an incredible person, beautiful on the inside and out. her amazing voice, songs, lyrics, talents, she does so much for charity and everyone thinks she’s horrible for dating so many guys WHY DO YOU CARE? she’s only dated like 6 guys and yeah she falls in love easily SO WHAT? her songs aren’t about GUYS they’re about EMOTIONS. i dnt have time for you haters.
so i don’t wear EVERYTHING SHE DOES but i mean i like her shirts and like try and see what she wears n see if i can copy that in anyway
i DO have my own ‘unique’ style i have to be modest yet fashionable. i mean i’m in no way a ‘fashionable hijabi’ i just like to look nice and be comfy and WARM!
next is JENNIFER LAWRENCE
how adorable is she?
and then the just…i mean JLAW is perf she’s funny and down to earth and just enjoys acting. she has a cat and is really friendly and loves her family and stays in watching reality tv and eating. =P
and then the
she doesnt even like dressing up that much but she’ll look good in ANYTHING
next is the looovveeellyyy EMMA STONE
and her casual style too- cool and comfortable (i’m guessing)
she’s just a really wonderful person, so funny and i just love her and Andrew Garfield together.
oh next is the AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL DEMI LOVATO
she’s amazing. she looks so beautiful and HEALTHY and i love her changing hair colours and her ‘edgy’ look with biker jackets aaahh she’s awesome. can’t wait for her new album. =D
of course i do love EMMA WATSON
EXCUSE YOU WHO SAID GIRLS WITH SHORT HAIR ARE UGLY?
that purple dress is just asdfghjkl;
i think she goes between Brown and Oxford though i’m not 100% sure so don’t take my word for it. but she is beautiful inside and out what with her modelling for Burberry alongside mr Eddie Redmayne and acting of course.
i’ve loved her since The Princess Diaries
you were saying about short haired people?
that’s what i thought…
the gorgeous LILY COLLINS
yeah she is the daughter of Phil Collins
also she and costar Jamie Campbell-Bower are soo dating.
oh…last but not least
who’s that girl?
those big eyes and luscious locks…
Masha’Allah these are all amazingly beautiful women who have a rocking style and are good at what they do.
when i was younger i really liked Alex Russo’s style in Wizards of Waverley place. it was definitely better than the things Hannah Montana wore which were like…really just meh. BUT fashion is a REALLY personal thing…it’s about expressing yourself and your ‘individuality’
following fashion trends may be following the crowd but if you add your own twist and make it your own to suit your style then it becomes unique.
here’s a lovely blog post about one of the most iconic women in fashion
some hijab inspiration blogs
i’d like to end on my 2012 Eid Al Fitr outfit. for once it was a gloriously hot day in London at 30 degrees Celsius
also let’s not forgot the SPARKLY CAT JUMPER i wore for my birthday!
yes i am a crazy cat lady. and proud
but we can’t leave without mentioning
CARRIE UNDERWOOD’S DRESS AT THE GRAMMYS
CINNA DEFO DESIGNED THAT
if you don’t know who Cinna is obviously you haven’t read The Hunger Games yet and i have no idea why you’re on my blog…
i mean just look at it!!!
OKAY LAST PICTURE I PROMISE
Storybook gown constructed entirely out of recycled and discarded children’s Golden Books. Designer Ryan Novelline created the bodice from the golden spines of these classic children’s books and sewed together the skirt from their illustrated pages.
yeah okay i’m done now
also check out my friend’s blog coz she’s awesome and she’s way more into fashion than i am
have a brilliant week
