My Islamic way of dressing.
Tagged by Hajar Zamzam Ismail. Thanks sis. Sorry it took me so long.
Reason is, I'm uncertain on how I should go with this post. My conclusion is, probably, I am supposed to indicate my way of dressing according to the principles of Islam. As a starter, I am extremely old-fashioned with zero fashion sense, so you are bound to read some super simple get-ups. Please skip this post if you do not want me to bore you. Sister Zamzam, I just had to pinch your format. :)
If I were to choose which one is me ...
Presently, I am mostly mini-qubeisya.
... ~ ...
At home :: 90% of the time, I'll be in "Kaftans". Sometimes, due to its length, it can double up as a broom and sweep-away the mess you leave behind during snack-time. :)
Prayers :: Always, in a white "Telekung" with some embroidery. Yes, I bring it with me even when I'm out. That should explain why I lug a bagpack. :)
Make-up :: None. I'm contented with the natural look. If I have a greasy face, I have a greasy face. If I have a zit, I have a zit. And if I have chapped lips, I have chapped lips. :)
Outside :: "Baju Kurung"
When I'm too lazy to iron it or want to save time, I will wear pants or long skirts matched with a / multiple layered long-sleeved top. :)
Hijabs :: To be brutally honest, I'm not a 100% hijabi. More of a 95%. I'm working towards it. Insha'Allah. My hijabs are normally the square scarves [regardless of the size], and rectangular shawls; with or without the pins, and brooches. I don't use any of those hijabs that you can slip on in less than 5 seconds and look wickedly smashing in it. I actually look frumpy in those.
Shoes :: Strapped-on sandals! And slip-ons! No heels! NO HEELS! And I put on socks.
Nails :: Years ago, I managed to obtain some henna, and slabbed it on my nails. Nowadays, keeping it short and clean is more than enough. :)
Perfume :: None. I'm happy with that. :)
Hair :: So far, I haven't done anything to it.
Accessories :: I wear a necklace, and a bangle. The necklace was a gift from my mum's colleagues when I was born. I've been wearing it for about 3 years now. Meanwhile, the bangle was a gift from my mum when she went for Umrah. I've been wearing it for 1 year, after I snapped the previous one. I still keep the beads though.
Colors :: My wardrobe consists of pastels, earth tones, red, pink, black or white. Nothing loud, i.e. sudden burst of summer colors. Although, I am starting to move on to other shades.
While I was searching for hyperlinks, I found out that the author for the "telekung" link is an old lost acquaintance of mine. What are the odds ...
Anyone can snitch this meme. :)
