This is what I'm wearing. Ya Allah, I hope I can run in that frock.
- Satin twist navy maxi dress, Oasis, I forget the price. In 2010 it was affordable-ish. A dark sparkly jilbaab would work, look for light fabrics.
- Full sleeve navy bolero, Amazon, £4.99 (wear a shawl or short jacket to take off in all-female company or a full sleeved top underneath if you're likely to get cold).
- Grey-silver scarf, The Hijab Shop, £4.99.
- Navy satin beaded neck scarf, Yoox, £49 (wrap white pearl necklaces around a satin scarf for the same effect).
- Black lace heels, Office, £24 *originally £75 (I found a pair of black sequined heels. Nothing a glue gun can't fix).
- Clutch in gun silver with clasp, Etsy, £44 approx (I made my own clutch bag).
- Chunky silver crystal bangle, Debenhams, £15 (wear 3 large crystal bangles together)
And this is what I was going to wear. Well, I did wear and then thought "I can give this to another." Granted, it's not a "fashion statement" to donate your clothing, but generosity comes in all forms and a new dress really can make someone else's Eid that much more special.
- Floral print, short sleeve dress, Oasis stores, there's no online link. Dammit. I got it in a sale for a tenner (£10), original price £65. Extortion!
- Mustard pocketed blazer, Dorothy Perkins, £45 (in store only)
- Burgundy chinos, TOPSHOP, £36
- Terracotta gold scarf, Bellissima Scarves, £10.20 *current discount
- Yellow handpainted shoes, Crafttastrophe on Etsy (go subtle with a pastel shade)
- Red dangly hijab pin, Ethnic Expressions on Etsy
Mucho love and respect from I. Remember me and mine in your prayers.
