DAY OUT WITH JOLLYCHIC

Hello Stylers <3

Recently I was up for a shopping spree but a budget friendly one (I deserve some brownie points for being super careful) on a HongKong based website called Jollychic – famous for the stunning red logo, seasonal offers & countless commercials on facebook. As I’m a planning an overseas trip soon, I thought of trying out some new affordable online stores to get my bags packing.

After constant back and forth of adding items to my wishlist from their fabulous clothing lines & huge accessories collection, I happily settled on some travelling essentials & wardrobe staples. Though, I’m quite sceptical about online shopping from international stores mainly because of the delivery time, Jollychic did surprise me in this very department (definitely in a good way) by their amazing association with local & foreign shipping & logistics companies.

The final order was placed on 18th Sept at Jollychic and the items were delivered at my doorstep via Aramex on 30th Sept.

So here is a quick fashion haul of what I picked up and if you are interested in giving Jollychic a try, use my special coupon code ” rthijabstyles “ for a 10% off on your order. Plus, you can avail, free express shipping on purchases worth 99$ and up.

Plus Size Black Patchwork Lace Top

One can never have too many black shirts precisely because you can always dress them up for an event or snuggle in them during office hours yet look presentable. The outfits you can recreate with this simple top brings in a whole other level of possibilities.

6 Pcs Classic Sterling Geometric Pattern Handbag Set

I’ve been wanting to invest in a good travelling combo and this one was a love at first sight sort of thing. Replicating the oh so famous Gucci pattern, I thought this particular combo was rather classy & super convenient for vacations with so many choices from a wallet to an oval bag, clutch and much more.

Grey Tassel Drop Women’s Handbag

When I added this particular dainty purse to my Jollychic cart, I’ll admit it was an impulse buy, mainly because of my huge fetish with tiny tassel bags & clutches. But this was beautiful little gem does compliment my recent ‘monochromic’ personality & oomphs up those boring rags I wear on my massive shopping fever days.

MODEST STYLE 101 : LONG CARDIGANS

Latest fashion trend making a buzz across the hijabi downtown is the contemporary long cardigan. How to style and wear to find the true bohemian, Coachella inspired kimonos to Abaya depicting floor length maxi cardigans or oversized chunky knitted woollen ones is the hottest news in the modest blogosphere. This post would be focusing the former and tips on the latter will be up soon.

Traditionally a layering staple, this super popular hijabi street fashion trend is turning heads around at every corner today. Ruling my wardrobe from last winter, these playful gems can be dressed up or down with a blink of an eye. Here are my personal favourite outfits I created with this exciting piece of clothing and my top 3 styling tip.

1. Three Color Rule: Sticking to the colour limit is always the safest bet but don’t be afraid to play around with colours, either with neutrals & monochrome tones or bright summer shades, color blocking is so in trend.

2. Accessories can be your best friends in turning any ordinary boring attire into high street fashion. Perfect for a night out on the town or a black tie party, Statement Necklaces glams up any outfit without feeling like too much. In all seriousness, vintage jewellery that looks like it’s been robbed right off of Queen Mumtaz’s neck is very in right now.

3. Let your shoes do the talking: Footwear can play a huge role, converse tennis shoes have a more cute, hipster vibe while silhouettes are all about confidence, sexy and elegance.

EID MUBARAK LOVELIES

Last night I was wearing this gorgeous cherry blossom print maxi dress I picked up from Splash Fashion on a random shopping splurge. Floral prints are my favourites for summer and &spring season plus, the fabric is super soft and flows so beautifully. As I wanted to draw all attention to this elegant my dress, I kept the rest of my outfit undertone and simple.

Pairing it with black leggings and kitty heels with gold details. To oomph up my hijab style just a tad bit I added a gold statement necklace I got from a Dollar Store in Ajman.

RED ROMANCE

Red Romance Maxi Skirt Hijabi Modest Style Outfit in Dubai RThijabstyles Rahma TalwarIs it just me or Muslimah’s all around the globe have initiated the newly found love for styling maxi skirts in the sassiest way possible. Gone are the days, when they were pushed back in the closet for those boring evening parties. Today, the youthful, quirky Maxi skirt trend is ruling the street fashion wonderfully.

As I stepped out of the mundane trend of skinny jeans persona, I was looking to bring in a more traditional modest feel to my fashion blog posts. What’s better than collaborating with another Hijabi Blogger?. Say hello to inspirational Safiya from the My Inspired Lifestyle all the way from South Africa.

Restarting the popular Fashion OOTD column, you get daytime & evening party look from one very romantic red maxi skirt.

For the summery feel, I rocked my red skirt with a lightweight black & white checkered throw over shirt I got from a nifty corner at Ajman Karama for super cheap. Is there another fabric more perfect for summer than that crisp checkered goodness?

Going with Hijabi street fashion, I wore my newly bought Forever 21 red tennis shoes. Bring back the 70s trend, don some tennis shoes or sneaker with a narrow maxi skirt for that revolting and innovative look.

Accessories wise, I went on all neutral. This camel brown jersey hijab is my current go to hijab, effortless, breezy & wrinkle free everything which makes it perfect for a lazy girl in summer. Lastly, my Sandy colour workplace tote bag which I carry everywhere made a special appearance is this OOTD.

A perennial staple in every hijabi’s wardrobe, maxis skirts or dress are truly a blessing for all women. The versatility of a maxi is unquestionable, get a boho, formal or casual look this summer with just a simple maxi skirt.

GlamBox November 2015 : Horrible Experience

2015113020595309
Hope you lovelies had a great weekend!

Subscription boxes are my favorite thing in the world, like come on a bundle of joy packed and delivered at your door is perfect to the ‘T’ for pampering yourself. From the past 3 months, I have been looking forward to the opening a ravishing pink box of surprises. Though, it may not have reached up to the mark, I was always had a happy go lucky feeling towards GlamBox !!

But last weekend, my pink box of wonder turned into a delayed package of terror & sorrow !! “DRAMATIC MUSIC PLEASE”. When Glambox released the sneak peek of this month’s box I had dual feelings. The whole surprise aspect was gone ‘Bummer’, but no complaints Body shop & Bioderma products made me go bananas !! So how it turned into a nightmare?

Basically, a closer look on the sneak peak made me realize one of the product had jasmine and I informed Glambox I’m allergic to the smell and asked them not to send me anything with Jasmine contents. Secondly, I changed my delivery address and contact number on the site and again as a good customer also informed them via email two weeks before.

So what’s the result you may ask? My delivery got delayed by almost 5 days and both Glambox and the courier company kept blaming one another. Okay so now I get to the most amazing part, revealing the contents. and another bummer no product from Body Shop, you can imagine how devastated I could be !!

So one of the staff calls me after my missing item email, so what they say is hilarious that they mistook my words regarding my allergy and did not add any Body Shop product though she apologizes and ensures me they will add a sample in my next box.

20151130-987598925However, many of you would like to know what’s in this month’s box so here it goes:

Hydrabio Perfector SPF 30 by Bioderma (40ml): I just love the Pump-Tube-Pompe thing going on, the product gives high protection against UV rays and dehydration. I use it as a mositurizer+ primer in the mornings these days, but the consistency is too thick and not super blendable.

20151130-504477089

Hydrabio Serum, Perfecteur and Creme (5ml) by Bioderma: To be honest, I had my eyes set on the Serum, as last month I already received Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Face Lotion. The serum is just divine, so soothing and relaxing, I basically envy every single one who got the full-size Serum.

Dadi’ Oil 95% Certified Organic Nail Treatment (3.75ml): A mixture of Avacado, Olive, and Jojoba oil makes this such a treat for your cuticles. Plus, the warm exotic combination of Lavender, Lemongrass & Vanilla takes you to a different world. All I want for my birthday a candle of this smell. “Best Friends please note”

Rasasi Lamaat Musk Tabriz & Jazeebiyat Musk Tabriz (1ml each): If you are a fan of Arabic fragrance, you just have to try these out. These not too overpowering unisex scents are musky & tantalizing. Do give them a try.

Either one of Body Shop Aleo Soothing Toner – Oils of life – Jasmine Body Shower Gel. 

Discount Vouchers

  • 20% discount on Body Shop Skincare Product
  • 10% discount on Rasasi outlets
  • Gift voucher from Eternel Clinic
  • Free skin analysis by Bioderma Skincare expert.
  • A chance to win 3-month subscription from GlamBox

Final Verdict: This month’s box was a true gem and definitely an answer to all our complaints and I’m sure every one of you would have loved it. It was my pure bad luck with all misunderstandings. However, Kudos to GlamBox for the 20% discount on Body Shop !!

MY SPARKLING FAIRY-TALE

I wore this fabulous mint gown for my college farewell party. I have been in love with this colour. It is unique and looks absolutely beautiful both in morning and evening events.

Matched my dress with a grey/silver scarf and mint under scarf (a harder shade of my dress). To glam it up a notch I also added a mint pearl hair band.
