Introduction

Thank you for visiting my blog! This my first go at blogging so any feedback is much appreciated!

I am a female student, born and raised in the UK, and have been wearing hijab for many years now. It can be a real hassle trying to find suitable clothing, which is modest yet stylish and reasonably priced! So I created this blog with the intention of providing an indispensable resource for style-conscious Muslimahs in the UK. I will post links and pictures of modest clothes, where to buy them, and how to wear them. I also hope to explore the world of international hijab fashion, and showcase designers and trends.

Enjoy!

Salam, Im so glad I stumbled upon this blog.. i cant wait to move back to UK insha'allah and try my hand at UK hijabifying rather than Canadian hijabifying :D

Hayah said...

Salam ammena, glad to hear you liked my blog! Just out of interest, what's the difference between UK and Canadian 'hijabifying'?

ammena said...

the fact that the clothes are more easier to come by in UK and better quality... that goes for all clothes really, not just stuff that you can hijabify :)

Love the blog. I am shortly visiting Saudi and been looking for some information on what to wear and came across your blog. So pleased to have found you. Will check in on a regular basis. I despirately need to know what I need to wear regarding the full dress.

Hayah said...

Anon,

In Saudi, all women wear the abaya and headscarf when outdoors. This is a loose robe (usually black), which is long sleeved, and floor length. I'll be posting an article tomorrow which you might very insightful!

Hi again, the article was very interesting thank you for posting it. Could you let me know which dates are most important for covering up totally as I'd hate to do anything wrong whilst visiting ? Thanks again, s

Hayah said...

Hi Sharon,

It's really nice that your concerned with appropriate dress for Saudi. There are no particular dates when women have to wear the abaya, they have to do it all the time, whenever there are non-related men around.

Oh I'm so unuse to the terms. I must get used to them mustn't I ? I suppose that as long as I keep everything covered including my head then I shouldn't offend anyone. I'm quite excited about my visit although just a bit concerned about making sure I do the right thing. Thanks again, S

Hayah said...

Sharon,

Don't worry about it! As long as you wear the abaya, you're fine. You could ask at the Saudi embassy in your country to clarify.

Salam

Good work on the blog, I enjoy getting going through the pictures to get ideas.

There was one ensemble picture I saw once (its possible it was another blog, as I noticed there are a few good hijab fashion ones), that had pants with a matching vest, and they were dark brown. The vest looked like a waistcoat that goes with a suit. the style was to wear the pants, vest with a long sleeve shirt shirt.

If that was yours, please let me know the link. thank you. I am trying to find long vests to go with pants for work but can't find any on the Internet.

Hayah said...

Ema, Amna, Yasminah, thank you very much!

Time, I don't think that was mine, but I have done a similar one here that's pink and white:

Hey I am a muslima from the states but your blog has totally opened my eyes to what is around here in the US for hijabi fashion. I know that even living in the one of the fashion capitals of the world i get stressed out when i go shopping trying to keep hijab and looking fashionable and modest. I plan on printing out some of your ideas إن شاء الله and taking them with me next time I am in need of a new outfit. Thanks so much for posting the website links as well
I also plan to be moving to the Uk this summer إن شاء الله to further my education and I look forward to visiting some of the Uk shops you mentioned in this blog as we dont have them here in the USA

Keep up great work

Naddiyya :)

I just want to say how great it is to find a Hijab style guide, which has such good intentions and presents real hijab fashion. I recently reverted last year and find your blog a real help when shopping for suitable outfits and pieces.
