Review | Islamic Design House

Assalaamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu dear sisters,

Recently I bought a jilbab from Islamic Design House (IDH) and here is the review for it. I wanted to buy something quite casual & sporty to wear with my converses =D yes I am a bit backwards I buy the accessories like hijab, shoes, bag and then buy an outfit to go with it lol. So anyway I was searching around and found this one on the IDH website.




It arrived in reaosnable time (I think, =S it's been a while now) and was packaged well, arrived in perfect condition. First thing I did was try it on, the length was perfect (I'm a weird size 55 inches) the fit was also perfect (they have different size in terms of body fit for each length option, which is SUPER!) only problem and big problem was the sleeves, they were too wide )= but that was fixed with a sewing machine (and I'm not great at sewing, but it wasn't that hard) it did take some trial and error to get the sleeves to fit (I didn't measure it or anything, so if you've got patience then it's really)

[Sorry about the pictures I had to stand on a bed =S]






What I love about it:

-I love the sporty look (I don't have a particular style I stick to, I like to try out all different style's in terms of outfits but this is my first sporty one)

-It looks good with my converses =D

-It fits well and is the right length

-The kimono (chinese/japanese dresses) style touch to it

-And my FaV thing...the sleeves, it's realy unique and gives a super urban chic feel to it.

What I don't like about it:

-I had to adjust the sleeves

-The fabric is like a poly cotton material which causes a lot of friction with my jeans or trousers which I wear underneath it, it's also quite stiff as in it doesn't really flow and makes a ruffling sound when you walk.

-It gets creased really easily so I have to iron it every time I want to wear it.

Overall:

It's a nice jilbab and I do like wearing it, it's not the most comfortable to walk in but is comfortable to wear. Is it worth the price, I actually don't think it is.....maybe it's the rise is prices of everything these days, but I do feel IDH is quite expensive, not as expensive as Aab uk or Shukr but not far off.

Alhamdulillah that's the review done (I've been meaning to do this for about 2 or 3 months now lol)

Hope you are all in the best of health & imaan...

Ma'salaama!

I Took My Driving Test!

Salaam all, I recently took my practical driving test and I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings of that day with you inshaAllah. On Wednesday the 18th I had my driving test. I had practiced all  I could and now the rest was down to Allah swt. I tried to keep myself calm by telling myself that whatever happens it is Allah's will and if I don't pass then maybe this time I wasn't supposed to. As I stood for Taraweeh that night my heart was pounding as I asked Allah to keep me safe on the road and also for me to pass. After praying I felt a lot calmer and soon enough fell asleep. Woke up for Suhoor, prayed Fajr and tried to go back to sleep. All I could think about was how much I wanted to pass, not because I really want to drive or anything, but just because taking lessons was taking up a lot of my time and money that I could spend on other things. As well as taking up my parents time and my uncle's. I got a couple of hours of sleep and woke up bright and

Hijab Style's To Suit Your Face Shape

So you're trying to follow a hijab tutorial but your hijab just doesn't look like the person doing the tutorial, you get frustrated because you can't get it right. Well to be honest I don't think it's so much you getting it wrong, it may just be that the hijab style being demonstrated looks better on the person doing the tutorial due to the shape of that person's face. Just like when you need to get a haircut, when styling your hijab, you have to consider the shape of your face. I've had many people tell me that hijab doesn't 'suit' them because their face is too round, or their cheeks are too chubby, which is the reason why they don't wear hijab, in my opinion hijab suits everyone, you just have to figure out how to wear it to suit you. Contrary to what many think, hijab wasn't prescribed to make you look 'ugly' it is to make you look modest. In this post I have tried to look at some face shapes and find some hijab style i

10 tips for your online hijab company

Assalaamu alaikum all! I have been having idea's about this post for a while but just didn't how to get my thoughts together so I'm not sure if this will be any good but here it goes anyway! So I don't run an online business of my own, I don't have a marketing degree nor am I an expert in running businesses but I've done my fair share of online shopping and have done reviews for online companies so I will give some tips from a consumer point of view inshaAllah, but please remember these are merely my views and not guaranteed to work Tip 1: Be Unique Do your research and check out other companies out there. At the moment the number of 'online hijab companies' have been growing and there are sooo many companies selling the exact same scarves & accessories claiming to be unique.
