Review | Hijab Fashion Shop - Abaya

Salaam ladies here is the write up for the review I did on YouTube for Hijab Fashion Shop (See video above).

 Hijab Fashion Shop now sells abaya's & maxi dresses. I chose to review the 'simplicity abaya' because I actually really like plain black abaya's which I can dress up or down. This particular abaya costs just £44.99 which I think is worth it due to the high quality of the fabric and tailoring.

I usually wear size 54-56 depending on what the fabric is like, so Sister Victoria from Hijab fashion shop took my height and suggested size 54 due to the fabric. The abaya is made from a jersey fabric which tends to hang down, so a size smaller is better otherwise it'd be too long. Also because of the way the fabric is pleated and flows down from the chest, a size smaller wont be too fitted inshaAllah. However, I'm 5ft3 in height (last time I checked) and this size 54 abaya is still a little too long (even with heels) so iA I will be altering it to make it a bit shorter. The owner of hijab fashion shop did offer to exchange it for a size smaller when I told her it was too long, but I actually like the fit of this size including the length of the sleeves and everything.

The abaya is made in Dubai and as I said, is of really good quality, it has a collar neck and is fastened using snap buttons. This is actually a very good design feature of this abaya because I realised that when I was praying and went down to sujood, although the scarf would slide forward (thus not covering my back) I was still completely covered because of the collar neck.

It is a very comfortable abaya, but I'd recommend you wear a long slip/dress/skirt/loose trousers or something underneath because the way it drapes can sometimes emphasise the waist/hips area. This abaya as with most (if not all) the abaya's on hijab fashion shop website comes with a lovely matching sheyla (scarf) and has one border with a strip of the same material the abaya is made in. The way it drapes & effortlessly flows gives you that elegant & modest Emirati/Gulf look.










I would totally recommend this abaya and this company to you all because I have bought from them before and they have not let me down alhamdulillah. If you don't really fancy plain black abaya's you can check out the other designs & colours on the website.

So here are some important links if you're interested in this abaya or the other designs =D

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
