ABOUT ~ Style Whimsical



I'm Rania, the girl behind the blog.

Welcome to my fashion and covered-style blog, FashFaith.com

I started this blog in October 2009. FashFaith.com was inspired by a fantastic film by Yasmin Moll, a PhD student in Sociocultural Anthropology at NYU, titled "Fashioning Faith". This film is about young Muslim women redefining what it means to be Muslim in contemporary America, and features several American Muslimah fashion designers.

At the first time, this blog meant to be my private archive about anything interesting I found on the internet, that's related to hijab in Islam. As the time went by, I found myself became more and more interested in creative hijab wrappings, covered style, and fashion in general; So, I added those things to my blog and I made this blog public with name Fashioning Faith.

As my style evolves, so does this blog. Right now this blog is an artistic personal style blog that features my daily outfits as well as style note from the runways/designers/brands, style crush from people whose style I adore, magazine editorials, illustrations, styling tips, headscarf-wrapping tutorials, and other various visually inspiring things. The blog's title also changed to Style Whimsical. This blog is a media for me to express myself, bursting my thoughts, embracing my passion in fashion, and for sharing things that I love. I love my hijab, I love timeless classic fashion, I love ladylike whimsical looks, I love vintage clothes as well as retro style, I love remix-able clothing.. all of these are fused into my blog.

Dig my blog's archive where you can find -- beside my daily outfits -- charming inspiration of covered styles (from readers' style, street styles to runways), tutorials on headscarf-wrapping, outfit styling, style inspiration, fashion tips, hijab styling tips, fashion trends, and fashion-newsflash from around the world, the latest designs in Muslim fashion, designers, hijab for sports, innovation or modification in hijab style, thoughts on hijab/modesty, editorials, photography, and anything related to fashion and style. Plus.. a bonus: some little stories of my life [read: my ramblings ^^].

About me:
I'm a mother of two active young boys and a baby girl. I love reading, blogging, tasting food (sometimes cooking), doing some sports such as jogging with my kids or go to the gym, taking pictures, dressing up, dressing down, styling up the scarf I wear, watching people's style on the street, reading fashion blogs/sites, reading blogs/sites about blogging and photography, watching FashionTV, BBC Knowledge, enjoy doing my errands, and traveling (eventhough I do not travel much.. ^^). I'm also in the process of learning photography, photo editing, and improving my English skill... ;)

That's it, a bit about me and my blog..

About the 'fashion' term.. I couldn't agree more to what Jana said on her blog, Hijab Style:
‘Fashion’ is not necessarily about what’s ‘hot’, or the latest fad, or having the most expensive designer gear. For me it’s about being creative within my limits, those primarily being price, availability and hijab-appropriateness of clothes. It’s about combining things tastefully and experimenting with fabrics, cuts and colours. It doesn’t have to be ostentatious. And to say that with the advent of such blogs, hijab is becoming a fashion statement is a bit misleading. My blog was originally aimed at Muslim women who wear hijab, not the general public, so I am simply complementing what already happens on streets the world over.

Muslim Fashion in the Qur'an:

Hijab... in its purest form, is the simple essence of modesty, of making sure you look decent especially on the street/outside the house. Hijab doesn't have to be drab. It is all right for both sexes to use clothing to enhance beauty as well as to cover nakedness. Yet the most important thing is to be modest and righteous.

O ye Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover your shame, as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment of righteousness,- that is the best. Such are among the Signs of Allah, that they may receive admonition!
(Al Qur'an Surah 7:26)


Note: some styles on this blog perhaps do not meet the requirement on Hijab (only Allah knows best), I just write what interest me..
