Over the weekend I attended the wedding of one of my oldest friends.
We go way back to the tender age of seven. I thought she was a snob at first
and I'm not sure what she thought of me, but we made it in the end anyway!
She was a big part of my life during college and university. We both started
wearing the hijab around the same time during uni. Prior to that we would have hours
and hours of conversation just about wearing the hijab. I've seen her grow into a
wonderful, classy young woman and she has the best modest fashion sense to boot.
I can't believe she's married now! I wish her and her husband lots of happiness
and goodness in their marriage.
It was fitting to channel some of my friend's elegant style in my outfit as a guest to her wedding.
I wore this beautiful dusty pink lace gown from Inayah, with one of their modal
hijabs. In keeping with a simplistic vibe I accessorised with just a silver teardrops necklace,
finished with heels from Zara and a clutch from Monsoon. The fit was perfect, I'm a 56" in abayas,
so I bought this in 58" to wear heels with it. It was so nice to feel free and comfortable
as opposed to wearing something ornate and feeling restricted. Usually with a saree or salwar kameez
I would spend ages trying to match a hijab and making the outfit as modest as possible.
I love that with this dress I literally threw it on and tied my hijab and was good to go.
The Inayah modal hijabs are some of my favourites as they are maxi size and you can't
see a thing through them! Also a sign that Inayah are doing an amazing job being one
of the leading modest fashion brands out there? So many sisters knew straight away where
my dress was from by just looking at it. That's what you call making a mark in fashion design.
