Enjoying Ramadhan.. Enjoying the sun(set)-light.. Enjoying our Faith..



Fashioning Faith: Waiting for Iftar

Saturday afternoon, August 20th, 2011, at Dixie - Easy Dining Cafe... Felt the sun(set)light warmed my face and have a really good time. Eventhough the sunlight was a bit garish, honestly, I enjoyed it. The light was not as hot as it felt during the mid-day and the breeze was a bit cold for me, so the sunlight really can warm me up.. :)

Here we are, on the last few days of Ramadhan. Alhamdulillah.. so far, this year's Ramadhan's Fasting has been so good and easy for me.. (even, I enjoyed it.. because I didn't have to be bothered about "the activities of eating".. ^_^, so I could focus on other activities).

One thing that I love during Ramadhan is the time in the afternoon while we were waiting for 'iftar' (breaking our fast). It's usually filled out with many 'positive' activities we did with other Muslims/Muslimahs.

On August 20th afternoon, my Hijabers Community's friends held a mini fashion show, bazaar, also hijab and make-up tutorial, in coordination with Dixie - Easy Dining Cafe, Wardah - beauty cosmetic, and Honda - pitstop Ramadhan.

I had a really good time and made some new friends with other Muslimahs who also attended this event. We were entertained by a live music by two beautiful sisters with beautiful voices, and the event was spiced up with gifted-quizzes from sponsors.

The live music:
See?.. The sunlight (which fell on the face of the singer) was so bright..

Friends.. ;)

All of us.

Okay, Lovelies.. time is ticking.. it's just a few days left before Eid..

I apologize for any mistakes I possibly did to you, and I pray we are all make the most of Ibadah in this Holy Month of Ramadhan.

Have a wonderful Eidul Fitri! :)

Salaam,
Rania

Howdy!
My name is Sishi. I'm a 24 years old blogger from Jakarta, Indonesia. I am a newbie in this blogging world and I would like to share some of my style.


My Style
My style actually includes some mix-and-match.
I love to wear basic and pastel colors, especially pink and purple.
Most of my clothes are from Indonesia's local designers, such as Nikicio and Cotton Ink. I love them for their great quality fabrics and simplicity, so that I can wear them all year long.
But overall, I think that my style still evolves.
Thank you so much for this opportunity.
Yours sincerely, Sishi. 

You can see more of Sishi's styles on her blog which, she said, posted quite regularly.. :)
Here it is: http://sheissishi.blogspot.com

SixteenR's ways to wear headscarf


Hijab Tutorial

A new video tutorial from SixteenR.com showing you how to achieve stylish modern look in a super easy way, featuring SixteenR's new 'Cashmere' scarf from their Fall/Winter 2011 collection designed by Nancy Hoque.

The final look of these three styles in the video are so "in-trend" in Indonesia right now, particularly amongst hijabi fashionistas.. :)

Previous SixteenR's tutorial on how to wear a scarf as a head or neck scarf in 11 ways :
This video was made in "vintage" style. I feel like I was watching a Charlie Chaplin movie.. :)

Of course, for Muslimahs who wear hijab, those styles in both videos will only be accomplished by wearing a ninja headdress as an inner-scarf.

Or, if you don't have ninja headdress, you can also try to wear your snugly fitted Al Amira-typed hijab or any tightly fitted 'instant' (= slip-over-the-head, no pins required) hijab as an inner.


*Just a thought and Hijab Styling Tips:

According to my observations on many hijab tutorials and the way many sisters wrap their hijab.. ;p, that to achieve one look, there are so many different hijab-wrapping techniques you can do. So, get creative, Lovelies! If you love someone's hijab look and you do not know how to wrap it, you can always try and find your own ways to achieve that look.

On the other hand, sometimes when we want to achieve different look (or even invent a brand new style), those various hijab-wrappings can not implement it. Eventhough we have tried wrapping the hijab in various delicate ways (twist it to left, twist it to the right, twist it up, twist it down, pin it here, pin it there, tie it up, knot it, etc), the 'final look' end up looks similar with the one that already exist.. :) Not exactly the same, but I just thought that the wrapping did not make any different.

Did you ever think so? Or, is it just a matter of the lacking of creativity? So, the main question or the challenge is how do we make that "the one that already exist"? ;)
Oh yes, several hijab stylistas have successfully done this.

As for the similar 'hijab looks', one thing that could help differentiate each of those similar 'hijab looks' is accessories, whether it is a headband, brooch, ribbon, flower/feather hairclip, etc., even sunglasses. Accessories can really help spicing up the looks and to differ each look one-another.

But, if you just want a simple, casual hijab-wrapping for daily outfit, simply wrap your hijab in a pretty casual look and you do not need to wear accessories (especially if you have already worn a full prints/motifs-ed headscarf, or perhaps just add one or two simple accessories for plain headscarf).

Hmm.. but the most thing I can think of is "it's up to you to choose your hijab styles, go for the easy ones for you to wrap, the ones that you feel comfortable in and feel confident to pull off, the ones that suit your personality"!  ;)

Happy wrappings!

The Orange burst


At school..

(Photo: courtesy of Rania © FashioningFaith Blog)


At my children's school, I adore one mother for her fashion taste. I love her stylish look and her choice to sometimes playing fashionably with colours.

One day, she wore an outfit in lots of colours, from peach, red, green, yellow, and black (either on the outfit itself, the headscarf, inner-scarf, and its accessories), but somehow she could manage the colours into a perfect combination of a 'pleasant to see' look.

The other day, she wore a plain outfit, but with a hint of colours from her accessories (big ring, bag, watch, or headscarf). Unfortunately, I usually could not capture these looks, because I  forgot to bring my camera when I take my children to school.

About few days ago, I saw her again. This time, she wore a bright outfit beautifully. She wore a pretty colour orange-d dress, matched with a unique cut (loose cut at the upper arms and longer cut at the back) of  white cardigan. She carried a fringed black handbag (it looked like a hand-made local-product handbag), paired with black-grey shoes. Her choice to wore a neutral colours (in this case: black) for her bag and shoes was perfect to balance and tone down the bright outfit.

As usual, I did not bring my camera with me, so I snap her look by my cell-phone. The result... not a good 'sartorialist' photograph.. ;p It was blur and did not show the details of the outfit.

Next time I have to make sure I bring my camera with me, and... ask her to pose specially for me.. ;)

This time of year, trousers are getting a great interference in the mode setting. They come in new modes and cuts; And the women today have enjoyed wearing trousers just the same as jeans.








Yes, some hijabi-friends of mine ever said that. Even, they have planned to switch their wardrobe items from 'jeans-legging wardrobe' to 'wide-trousers-maxis'.

So, how about you? Which style you're gonna rockin' this season? :)
