College Uniforms

This is the college uniform I have seen A LOT, sweats a tee and flip flops. It should be illegal to give tickets to broke college students. It just should.




This was my uniform before I became Muslim running through the street late as usual hoping that the professor wouldn't see me. After I became Muslim just slap a hijab on it and that was it. I don't even know why I was late all the time, I mean I dormed.

We Are The New UMMAH! BABY!

I use cloth diapers on my little dude and I wanted to use it in a set for babies. What do you think?

Yellow Skeleton!


In order for you to wear this outfit with the cardigan open you must get a dickey to cover the front of the shirt. I wanted to use black converses but I had been using them a lot lately. What do you guys think?

NO, they aren't hooker boots

nope, not at all. This is for a goth friend of mine who had a Mohawk prior to becoming Muslim. Sadly I had some horrible stereotypes of goths that she dispelled. This is for her, complete with the abaya she uses over her clothing. I also couldn't help myself and had to include Skye's work from Nailz-in-Aus.

This is for my Urban sisters, complete with the timbs and hoop earrings. How I miss that style. I remember attending an Al Maghrib seminar in NYU and the New York sisters looked stunning! MashAllah. What stuck out the most where sisters in abaya wearing them with timberland boots and taking the subway.

Dressing Modestly is easier than Differential Equations


Someone asked how is a Muslim sister going to wear the BCBG dresses and here is how. These sets are for inspiration only as they are expensive.

Dressing modestly and fashionable is simple, here in the USA it is hard finding appropriate clothing so we get creative. If the dress exposes the arms wear a cardigan. If it cuts too deep wear a dickie/dickey (tutorial on how to make a dickie here, sample img on the right). If it has slits you can either wear a dressy trouser or a dressy flowing skirt or if it can't be saved don't wear it at all.

If the "dress" is more of a mini get creative and use it as a top and again if it exposes the arms wear a cardigan. Match it to a skirt or trousers.

These sets ARE expensive but they were made to show you can utilize a short dress and make it in to a long top for yourself. Obviously the ones in the images are a size zero so you would use a size bigger. A plain black skirt would have done just fine.

The pink cardigan has a ruffle to compliment the dress. You would wear the cardigan over the dress and botton the first 3 buttons to cover the neck and collar bone. You could also do a white cardigan.



Now the mini skirt and tube top I have no idea how to hijabify, however, you could still use them as inspirations if you happen to like the colors like I do.


This is my favorite set, the purple love.

Turquoise Maxi

I am not too happy with this set but the dress is $14.99 and the cardigan is $5.99 those two items come from sears.com as they seem to be trying to get rid of all their summer inventory. I like the three colors in the dress but I couldn't decide on what to pair it with. The shoes and the bag are expensive but I love the shoes so much I am going to go looking for an affordable one that is similar

The hijab is 9.99 from jelbab.com The shoes and purse are out of budget but can be imitated very easily with dark brown flats and a copper tone purse.
