Styling Tips for Today

Try layering long-sleeved stripes under a cropped jacket for an unexpected pattern pop...

The advantage of this style for hijabi is the long-sleeve stripes will cover the whole arms, and the cropped jacket can act as the outerwear to cover up the clingy t-shirt at the bossom.

Looovve this look... :) Is this something you'd like to try?

Asian iCandy Store

Unique Asian art and lots of modest clothing

I stumbled upon an online clothing shop that I love. Featuring Asian-inspired clothing and accessories from independent artists/designers, the line is not only edgy, unique, and beautiful, but also modest.

The first time I saw Asian iCandy site, I became so excited. I love their clothing style and "Wow!... there are lots of unique, beautiful, modest clothes here!". For a 'general' shop (not specifically for Muslim women or other modestly-wearer women), it's really amazing that they provide lots of wearable, in trend, hijab-friendly clothing pieces.

I couldn't help to browse their site over and over again... ;)

Here are some of the pieces:

Long-sleeves mini dresses:
You can pair this pieces with long skirts or pants.

Hood vest:

Long skirts and dresses:


Lady coat

Winter coat:

Maxi coat:

Inspired by Asian arts and designs, especially from Japanese/Korean fashion and also traditional Chinese, Vietnamese, or Thai elements, there are still a lot more gorgeous pieces from the site.

There're also cute bags, shoes, and unique accessories:

Donna Karan Pre Fall 2011, and a Hijab Tutorial: Winter Style

Style Inspiration

Fall and Winter always come with a more modest style, as a way to prevent the cold, which is perfect for hijabis. Runway fashion also filled in with full of chic, edgy, and more modest style.

Here's a collection from Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2011 that are so covetous. I love the earthy yet urban palette, the long flowy silhouette, the luscious fabrics, and how the belts are twisted.

And inspired by this look,

Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2011

I made a hijab tutorial on wrapping hijab for WINTER STYLE, which perhaps for some of you this is not too innovative... hehe... I've been seeing this wrapping style so many times, but without pulling the scarf/shawl up onto the head (to cover the head). Usually it's only be a neck scarfing.

So I want to show you how it looks when you wrap this style as a hijab. There's no pins needed.

1. All you need is just a "not slippery and stiffer fabric" pashmina/long scarf.

2. Fold it into half (rectangle shape).

3. After you fold it, place the long scarf/pashmina half way over your head.
Don't forget to wear an inner scarf/headband beforehand, to make sure your hair doesn't show up.

Then, follow this "step-by-step" instruction below:

Lastly, adjust and neat up the hijab wrapping... :)

Voila... you're ready to go. Have a wonderful Winter!

New Year's Giveaway! (CLOSED)

Sponsor: UK's New Clothing Brand

Fashioning Faith has been a year now. And I'm very thankful to all of you who have been faithfully reading my blog... :)

Recently, a clothing compay based in the UK contacted me, regarding to the launch of their new clothing line. They also will be giving away their product for one of Fashioning Faith's lovely readers.

So, first of all, I'd like to introduce you this amazing clothing brand:

Turquoise Long Coat
Red Evening Bag Encrusted Flower
VELA Clothing !
Black Beauty

Vela Clothing is a new online shopping portal for long coats/abayas, party/special occasion sandals, scarves and handbags. At their website, they provide alternative views and innovative zoom technology that allows you to practically touch the products being viewed.

According to what they've told me, one of their objectives is to provide high quality clothing. The inspiration was came from the elegance of the women in Turkey. However, they felt that some of the long coats in Turkey would not be quite suitable for the UK so, as they said,
"... our line has been made with this in mind and we have tried to make it more of a fusion that can cross over to the west. The idea was conceived just over a year ago and after intensive market research and refining of our designs, we are finally ready to launch."
They added,
"We felt that the Muslimah in Britain were generally confined to the closed abaya which in our opinion in adverse weather can become very clingy and figure revealing thus not conforming to what Islam says. So we set out to provide an alternative that can be worn with the abaya and provides elegance, modesty, and professionalism."
They also said that they wanted to provide something that can be incorporated into working attire also as there are many Muslimah in the workplace.

So go, check their clothing line out for yourself here:

Giveaway Time! :)

As for Fashioning Faith's first giveaway, I'm giving you a chance to win a beautiful Turkish Scarf from Vela Clothing. Here's the example of the gift:
