it's great to see that hijabis are like any other girl. Hijabis love fashion and like to look presentable. Some might say that hijab isnt about wearing fashion and blah blah blah. I know my husband likes to see me take care of myself and try to look presentable and polished - so long as i am respecting my hijab. I see lots of hijabis letting themselves go.

your blog has given me lots of outfit ideas. Outfits that i would never of thought of.

Keep up the excellent work.
Allah Ya3tiki alef a3fiye.

I can't find great things here in Canada - or maybe I'm just not looking in the right place?

Thanks for posting!

Hayah: Hijabi stage is when I did alot of layering---cute loose black and white chiffon skirts over whie trouers, long white trench worn open, white turtle neck sweater, butterfly crystal earrings popping out of my hijab (in a way that my ears and neck didn't show), and white pashmina hijab ties in a cool way it was so long it could have been a chador but man did i look like a rock star! Alas, because I can't look ugly alhamdulilah(I am not bragging I can just credit my early exposure to creativity, beauty, and design from my parents) my hijabi-stage got me too many compliments (and I guess people couldn't tell right away if I was Muslim so men were still hitting on me [I have to talk to men at my work and many of my clients are older affluent males].
Alhamdulilah, I love how light an abaya is on a hot day, and unless I am rocking the khaleeji look you would never know my jilbab was Islamic attire (but now people pretty easily identify me as being Muslim and the date offers have stopped and I've achieved that distance and respect hijab requires from me). It took jilbab for me personally I figure mainly because of white skin and South African accent people here mistake for old guard rich girl. It pops out when I'm nervous! People always think I am English. Even in London! Londoners are always asking me for directions to things. The saw my hijabi style as well-travelled. Now they see it as cultured Muslimah, and alhamdulilah, my Iman at this point is strong enough to deal with job discrimination and client discrimination on this grounds. I think my abayas enable me to give more dawah than my hijab to women (women absolutely love mine and one client even bought one from me to wear to a party-sans hijab of course but...). It is the men that hijab gives da'wa to, but only if they know it is not a fahsion statement, it is a declaration of faith. Sorry for so long and personal a post.

aalya, have you tried the Canadian Muslim website?

Alix, that's ok lol I love reading about other people's experiences. My brain is frazzled right now, I'll try to put together a coherent two-lines lol. How comes they didn't recognize you as a Muslim straight away, even with hijab? And what is 'old guard'? Oh and I'd love to see what your non-khaleeji outfits look like!
