Hi! I just wanted to tell you how much I love your blog! I'm not Muslim (I'm Buddhist and from Sri Lanka, where I have many more Muslim friends than I do here in California, strangely enough), but I really like everything in your blog, esp. the outfit collections you put together (via Polyvore?) ... I'm getting a lot of inspiration and ideas on how to put outfits together, from them.

I added your blog to the link list on mine ... if you don't mind? :)

Whoops ... I forgot to add, the link to your blog is on "Udarata Kella", my style/fashion blog (the other one is my wedding blog).

Anchibride, thank you very much! I'm glad you're liking the outfits! I don't use polyvore anymore though, too messy. And of course you can link :)

Anon, thank you! I've got that post planned, keep an eye out ;)
