Islamic Design House- Jilbab review

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!

Rabia Z kaftan

Assalaamu alaikum girls!


So I entered this competition held by Muslimah Compass in collaboration with Rabia Z and strangely enough I won =D I won a hot pink kaftan and a Rabia Z signature jersey hijab, here are some pics and my thoughts on this item from the Ruby collection.







Ok so first thoughts upon receiving the package '*WOW* it's a really bright pink' I'm quite a girly girl I would say and I adore the colour pink (maybe just not this bright lol) It came in a pink Rabia Z Ruby collection bag (you know the ones made from fabric) and it's the same colour so I do use that when I go out because I can handle a little bit of this colour, but honestly speaking I wouldn't go out in it, it's just a bit too bright for me and would defo attract waay too much attention in the suit clad city of London. But I have worn it out to dinner at my Uncles house and I do wear it at home when we have guests.

Eventhough it's made from jersey (which usually clings to your body) this has been made in a way where it does not reveal your body figure, it's quite amazing! It's is sooo soo comfy, which is my number one priority when it comes to clothes [after modesty of course].

The Rabia Z ruby collection has more beautiful outfits, some just as daring as this pink and some more subtle colours. Like this one, which is so chic!


 
My outfit is perfect for dinner parties (dress it up with nice shoes, bag and long necklace) or dress it down for a night in with the girls (with a nice pair of black trousers and the jersey sheyla).

So to sum up...

Pro's: Beautiful outift, perfectly modest in terms of how it fits, awesomely comfy, (my number one go to when we have guests)

Con's: Bit too bright to wear out in public

We totally NEED a Rabia Z store in London....I mean take a look at this goregeous outfit from her Autumn/Winter collection =O I HAVE TO HAVE something like this.....I mean it's realllllly elegant and absolutely stunning!




I <3 Rabia Z!

& Muslimah Compass for holding the competition!

So what 'ya think of Rabia Z and her outfits? If you love the brand as much as  I do leave a comment below =D

Until next time...*big hugs*
