Peachy Sparkles


Abaya Style Gown . Shop in Blackburn

This outfit was actually bought unstitched, I hadn't seen anything like it but in the shop (which I cannot remember the name of :( ) they had a variety unstitched suits like this but what was different was that it had a lot of fabric.
It was perfect for making abayas or anything you wanted for that matter.
The embellishment was already on it for the sleeves and the neck and the scarf was also with it with embellishment on either side of the scarf.

I don't think you can see but when getting this sewn up I asked the tailor to make the style so that it had panels and had a nice amount of flowyness but not too much.
This is one of my favourite suits from my mother in law, I picked it as I did all my other ones lol ^_^
I think it's because I don't have any clothes in this colour and I was surprised that it looked right on me as a lot of pale/bright colours I feel don't suit me.

    1. I used him quite a bit near my wedding time (last summer) but I haven't gona back to him since.
      He's the owner of Lahore Fashions on Cheetam Hill Road. But you may have to be quite particular that you want it sewn from him because he now has others working for him.
      I wear a pashmina scarf wrapped under my hijab which is the silver on you can see. As I put the slippy hijab on I pinned it to that scarf to keep it in place and then as you wrap it round you keep adding the pins :)
      Hope that makes sense!
      But honestly slippy/silky hijabs stay put if you have a good base of a hijab underneath x

    3. As if you are wrapping it around your head like a turban if that makes sense?
      Fold it 1/3 in, place it on your head with one side longer than the other
      Take one side and wrap it around & tuck into bun and then take the other side and wrap it around the head and tuck it in.
      The same way dina wraps the under scarf is this video:

    1. Thank You Samiya!
      I hope I don't get haters for this but I didn't really like many of the shops in Blackburn.
      This particular one was near chunky chicken in the area where they have the main clothes shops. You had to go up stairs to get into the actual shops, but the man did have really decent clothes in there :).
      Also as a hijabi I like hijab centre for their hijab pins (not too keen on there hijabs so much) and also there is an abaya shop just down the road from here that sell some different & lovely scarves.
      The velvet scarf I was wearing in this post was from here for only a fiver:

      On my lips I think I wore Cosmo with a little bit of Craving on top (both lipsticks by M.A.C)
      I like to mix my lipsticks to get the perfect shade and a shade that is always a lil different :)

      Sorry for the essay lol, hope it helped!

  6. ok babe, i have so many nice suits but i always get worried in wearing them because i never know how to make the dupatta look or for it to stay on my head lol! iv just recently put hijab on, i had to like sow on sleeves on all my asain outfits lol, i had just come back from pakistan too so done a huge shop! and i still havent worn any of them because of that reason, but the way youv worn it masha'Allah looks stunning, i have a simular face shape to yours..so i think that style would look ok on me. Your stunning btw masha'Allah love your style modest yet stylish, im a proper girly girl so i totally love this outfit and the shade lol <3

  7. Hun I had the same problem when I started wearing hijab but alhamdulillah it all works out in the end :)
    The dupatta I wore is actually as small as a scarf because it came with the suit in such a way.
    Do you live in manchester?
    The best thing you can do scarf wise is look in the market scarf stalls or if you do live around here I can give some shop names that sell a variety of scarf colours that you can match with your suits.
    Remember it doesn't always have to be exactly the same.. you can contrast sometimes too and just match the under scarf with your suit? Which could be any type of material/size of scarf.
    Jazakallah Khair for your lovely compliments hun :)

      They had quite a few scarf stalls that sold plain pashmina hijabs, these don't feel too warm if you wear them the way I explained I do.
      They are the best to find a variety of colours in too.
      Hope you manage to find what you need hun!
