Boots and Dresses are In!

Trans-seasonal Fashion

To welcome Fall season in some countries, Net-A-Porter has set up a modern match for your look by teaming high hemlines with edgy ankle boots.

Still wearing the pretty Summer dress.. but, matched it up with a pair of Fall style staple, the urban ankle boots, to add a sense of Autumn breeze and for the ultimate trans-seasonal fashion match.

Style note: For hijabi like us, simply add a trouser or a skirt, and then layer it up with an outerwear (a light jacket, cardigan, blazer, or trench coat) if the dress is sleeveless. Or, you can wear your long-sleeved maxi dress or long-sleeved maxi jumpsuit underneath the Summer sleeveless minidress.

Pop up your headscarf and you are ready to go! :)

The addition of a vest, or a belt, or minimalist accessories, can also jazz up the looks.

For easy outfit-styling for hijabi, simply wear a maxi instead of a mini dress, and give it a modern edge with one of these ankle boots, then accessorized it with a jacket or a vest. I love the look of it!.. A flowy, feminine, pretty maxi dress teamed up with urban, edgy ankle boots..

As for ankle boots, my favorite lately are the lace-up ones.. ^_^

What's on trend..

Hoodie-attached and the excessive draped-cloth on the side part of the dress/skirt.

Lately in my city, we can see so many girls in hijab wearing a hoodie-attached dress or a hoodie-attached t-shirt. The hoodie can be functioned as a shawl, too.

Also, which is so popular here right now is a dress or a skirt with "wings" (excessive cloth draped on the side part of the dress/skirt).

The colors chosen for these clothes, such as yellow mustard, shocking pink, tosca green, or red maroon, also add a highlight to the outfits.

For most people, especially the young generation, the "wings" (excessive draped-cloth on the side) is something new. But, when recently I explored my mom's wardrobe (^_^), I found one of her vintage dresses also has these kind of "wings".

So, actually (like most of you perhaps already know) some trends are only making a cycle, they just 'come-and-go' continually..

What do you think about these kind of clothes? Do you have one?

(Not quite) new hijab styles!

Hijab Tutorial: The Flowy Look

At least once a week, I spend a bit of time reading fashion blogs that I love. And then, from it, I usually came across some blogs that I've never seen before.

Today, I stumbled upon Irma's blog, Yes, I'm Irma. She's really got an eye for style. On her blog, she also share some hijab tutorials.

There are two tutorials that really caught my attention. She got these styles from the Hijab Class she took part held by Hijabers Community Jakarta.

I'm so glad she took her time to made these tutorials and share them on her blog. I really really fell in love with the 'natural' and the flowy look of these hijab styles, and I just can't wait to apply it to myself tomorrow! :)

You can see the tutorials:
here for the first hijab style, and
here for the 2nd hijab style.

And this is how it goes on my mannequine.. :)

Hijab tutorial from "Yes, I'm Irma"

Both styles also have a twist ala hana-tajima of stylecovered.. :)

To make these hijab-wrappings, you need:
  • an inner, that cover your hair, neck, and upper bosom, or so-called ninja headdress.
  • a shawl/pashmina; with flowy materials would be better. On the first tutorial, Irma used a reversible two-tones shawl.
  • one brooch for the 1st style; and two pins/brooches for the 2nd style..

Which one do you like most?

Please welcome.. Hijabers Community Yogyakarta!

Sunday Fun with Hijabers Community Yogyakarta (HCY), July 10th, 2011.

This is the first time I met and attended an event held by Hijabers Community Yogyakarta (HCY). HCY is a community which in it, all Muslim women (especially who live in Yogyakarta-Indonesia and its surroundings area) can meet up, sharing, and do positive activities as a way to build a strong and good relationship between Muslimah ('silaturahmi') and as a place to improve ourself to be a better Muslimah.

Every month HCY held twice Sunday Fun's event as a routine meeting. It's on the first and the third Sunday of the month.

Last week HCY's Sunday Fun held a seminar about women's reproduction health (topic: cervical cancer), and a muslimah fashion bazaar. Sounds really fun, right? 

Getting ready for the bazaar.

The Seminar. Speaker: Ibu Sri Panuntun, a lecture and also a nurse-midwife.

Yes, I have a great fun attending this routine meeting with Yogyakarta's hijabers (hijaber/hijabi = a call for a Muslim woman who wear hijab). 
I got new knowledges, new friends, a new hijab-style (one pretty sister kindly share to me on how she wrapped her hijab), and also.. a new beautiful purple-pink shawl I bought from the bazaar :) 
Thank you for this fun meet-up, Girls!

And here are some of style shots of the girls who attended this event:

Note: the 'yellow-mustard' above is a maxi dress with a hood. Same like the hoodie t-shirt, the hood is functioned as a shawl/hijab, too. Yellow-mustard.. matched with the colour black, looks awesome.

Cute look
