Eastern Inspiration

Mango have some beautiful pieces in their Spring collection right now, and this silk blouse and skirt really caught my attention. It's always difficult to find modest evening wear on the high street, but these two pieces together would be perfect. I was immediately reminded of bright African prints, but the style itself seems to be a cross between a Moroccan kaftan and Japanese kimono. It would make a beautiful outfit for a wedding guest in warmer climes. Just add an orange hijab, jersey top or sleeves for arm coverage and gold accessories:


Silk blouson £70 and silk skirt £95, Mango; orange kuwaiti hijab £3.99, Muslim Base; long sleeve top £7, Dorothy Perkins; Ladazello gold sandals £55, Faith; gold mixed bangles £8 ASOS; Misty bag £35, Dune.

since i have recently converted to Islam and am wearing the modest clothing, etc..especially from Shukr website (shopping online in the U.S is the best way to go), I have come to love this feminine way of dressing..no sloppy t-shirts and jeans. As a Muslimah, you dress like a girl/woman and that is something to celebrate and take joy in. I love this feminine look here in this collection.
