So What can be more satisfying than finding a piece that screams your soul inside out? This gorgeous A/W shirt has ‘me’ written all over it, honestly, I couldn’t hold my excitement when I got one of a kinda plaid shirt delivered at my desk. So not only is this my ideal pattern for this season, but also the cotton flannel fabric is the perfect to snuggle up in, during a movie or date night. Rather than the more obvious red plaid shirts, I just love to twist my ensemble around the shades of navy blue & military green. I love flannel prints & embroidered fabric from Tissura.
I knew this shirt deserved a part on my blog when I turned it around. It has “University of Bloggers” printed on, I couldn’t believe my eyes or my luck. I was beyond thrilled to collaborate with Splash Fashion to showcase their new collection highlighting Bloggers and Vloggers.
I know my fellow bloggers are already going GAGA on this unique totally relatable fashion hit. Perhaps, now you know where to find it?
So though I’ve been MIA from my blog for a while, a few fashion posts are lined up. As I always say Hijabi fashionista have their own individualistic unique style and some trends just pass around the corner, when not matched with our modest quota. And one such drift is the Crop Top mania. With Dubai being super hot, I rely mostly on cotton and high fashion fabrics from Tissura.
Introducing a perfect blend of fashion & faith, with a new clothing brand, Modest Forever. A monochrome crop top that can be styled in two very unique ways. Either pair it with palazzo pants or layer it over a dress.
P.S. A fashion photoshoot is sometimes a nightmare, with constant stares of travellers and little kids pointing & giggling at you. But you do what you gotta do.
My fashion sense has always been something between two extremes – Glamorous Diva or Fashion Disaster. I don’t fall into the category of comfy casuals. Either I go all out with matching outfit, on fleek makeup and high heels or I became a raggedy monochrome disaster with panda eyes and slip ons. But I feel 2017 is the year of breaking the rules.
“I shall Slay thee with my closet.”
January always feels like the chance to start fresh. Insert FASHION RESOLUTIONs
1.Indulge in Solid Colours
Over the year, I’ve bulked up my wardrobe with quirky patterns & fusion of vibrant colours. Instead, I wanna go crazy on colours like blush pink, caramel & rusty green.
2.Buy fewer things of better quality.
I’m all up for investing in strong statement pieces like Trench Coats, Ankle Booties or Vintage Purse which can stand alone or with a killer outfit.
3.NO to the Lazy Baboon zone
In 2017, I’m letting the Lazy bird go. You never know who you bump into a random shopping trip to the mall. So, I challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone & messy PJs and improve my Fashion Game on a daily basis.
So I’m totally in love with the “Open Sleeves” trend, be it blazer or dresses, this iconic cut sleeve definitely ups your fashion game without any efforts. Featuring another unique piece from my Modest Forever Series, living up to the name, thankfully the dress comes with attached white full sleeves under, so you can avoid wearing an inner. Perfect material for summers to stay on point with your diva avatar.
As winter with winter knocking doors of Dubai, another fashion favourite bound to be all over the place is anything and everything made of velvet fabric. Wearing this summer favourite in winter with a tad bit of improvisation with my purple velvet cardigan robbed from a friend’s closet.
Until next time,
Love Rahma <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 calledJollychic– 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.
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.
Is 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.

O.K so this is a post that has been waiting for a long time to be posted. On my recent Instagram post, many of you ladies wanted to see a modest lookbook for summer. So here is my successful merge in 7 different ways between style with modesty. I put this outfit together that would look great for a casual lunch date or even a night out. I’m usually into loud prints and bright colors so this is actually quite a big change for me.
Looking through this post, I hope you get inspired to try some of these outfits yourself. As summer is already saying a Bright & Sunny Hello to all in Dubai, my outfits would have more of pink, blues & white vibe throughout the post, but black is an essential for me in all seasons.

How cute are palazzo pants? I’m absolutely in love with how modest yet edgy they make your entire outfit. Another thing I love is, it’s versatility, last time I dressed it up elegantly for a date night with my friends, check out the outfit here. This weekend, I attended Kempinski Hotel Ajman’s Friday Garden Brunch which is a luxurious feast of five different cuisines with a view of a beach (Blog posting coming up soon). For a more calm, relaxed look appropriate for the beach, I paired up my white palazzo pants with a red lace loose top and a lightweight fabric hijab.
As you all loved my last beach-inspired look, (click here to check it out) I thought of sharing another idea with you, lovely ladies. <3
