Mi Amores! I hope you all are doing well and enjoyed a wonderful Eid Inshallah (God Willing). This is going to be a post on what I wore for Eid and how I styled this look. As mentioned in previous posts, I always design my own outfits. I started on a design for Eid, but I could not finish it due to some work (it’s ok, I can save it for an event).
This Eid I decided to do something…different. I have a “unique” sense of fashion which I am known for (main reason for my passion for fashion). I planned my outfit the day of Eid, literally. I mentioned in my last post that’s what you can do if you get caught up with school or work don’t panic just walk into your closet (or your sisters or your brothers) and get an outfit together!
So, I went into my brothers closet (yup, that’s right) and he had received a gift from one of his friends which he had NEVER EVER touched. Of course my brother did not know I was going through his closet, but eventually saw (muahaha). The coat I wore is called a “Chapan” also known as a “Coat”. Beautifully handmade, of rich fabric and colors. It is of Afghan culture, so I accessorized the coat with the authentic Afghan jewelry I own. This was something new I tried, but hey that’s the whole point in fashion 😉
Let me tell you ladies one thing, always be proud of who you are. Wear, think, do what makes you happy people are going to say useless things anyway! Do not ever hesitate to express yourself through different styles, take it from me 😉 So just enjoy your life, and fashion on ❤
What do you ladies think of this look? Would you wear something similar? Yes? No? I would love to hear your feedback.
Much love always,
Nelo .A. ❤

EID Al-Adha 2015 Look #3
Still haven’t found the perfect Eid look? Or last minute Eid Shopping? Don’t worry!
Eid is for 3 days, and with school and work it can get hectic. But putting together a last minute Eid outfit, without leaving home you can literally just run into your closet right now and put a look together in a heart beat!
So why don’t you get yourself up, walk on over to your closet and start playing with whatever you have. Mix and match looks, play with colors, just use your sense of fashion. In no time, you will have mastered a quick last minute Eid look without any worries. Then wear it to wherever you have to go tonight 😉
This is exactly what I did for this look, just to show you ladies that you don’t ALWAYS have to go shopping or panic for an Eid outfit (especially for those who go to work/school). I played around with the shawl (again) just so you can style it how you please, OR just wear the dress itself!
This is the full and final look ladies! I hope you all enjoyed Eid-Al-Adha’s Look Book which was (obviously) Fall inspired. Inshallah until next year!
Wishing all of you a blessed Eid, May Allah make us have many more Inshallah (God Willing) Ameen ❤ ❤ ❤

EID Al-Adha 2015 Look #2
I am so happy to see all of you loved the first Eid Look! I have received many messages/emails on the looks I post and its overwhelming, thank you all so much, I mean it from my heart ❤
Without wasting any time (many of you are eager for the next look & not my blabbering) here is Eid Look #2! As mentioned in my last post, the weather is still nice and not too cold, after the rain it has become a bit more chilly which means…layering! One of my ultimate “must haves” for Fall/Winter clothing is 1)Fur & 2) Velvet<3
This look is more of an elegant approach, for those who like to keep it classy on Eid. This long maxi velvet dress has a high-neck (which is perfect for those of you who are Turbanistas). I did a turban look, but I have to cover my neck (just my own zone of comfort). The back of this dress has a medium slit, in which you can either sew it up OR wear leggings to keep it halal 😉 The other option you have is long-legged boots! FYI I bought this dress in black too, I couldn’t help myself…
I then added a light-weight shawl which has a mixture of neutral tones to balance the look. Before you all ask I thought might as well do it before you ladies do! I did 3 different styles with the shawl, OR you can just wear the dress itself!
To complete the “elegant” and “classy” look I accessorized it very lightly because the look was already vibrant enough. And that ends Eid Look #2!
Velvet Dress: Urban Outfitters
Shawl: Charlotte Russe
Lipstick: NYX- SIREN
EID Al-Adha 2015 Look #1
First off, I would like to say to those who have gone to perform Hajj (The Holy Pilgrimage to Makkah) this year to have an amazing spiritual journey. May Allah (God) accept every act of worship performed, and may they all return safely to their loved ones Ameen. To those who lost their lives due to the accident, May Allah (God) accept their Hajj and forgive them Ameen.
To my “Non-Muslim” readers, I will explain “Hajj” and “Eid Al Adha” in a different post so stay tuned ❤ As for the rest of you, who has begun Eid shopping? OR last minute Eid shopping I should say…(I’m one of them). I have mentioned before, I usually just design mine the night before (I’m a procrastinating Queen..).
Well then! I know many of you have been eagerly waiting for these looks because I had mentioned on my Instagram ( @fashion.with.nelo) that these looks are going to be “Fall Inspired” and I.LOVE.FALL.
Seriously, you ladies have no idea my love for this time of year…you just don’t. If I could marry Fall, I would. Crisp cool fall air, warm drinks, darker makeup looks, boots, fringe, layering, gorgeous fall scenery & fall activities! Since the weather is still a bit warm (not too warm thank God) layering up is no problem 😉 Hijabistas…you definitely know what I’m talking about ❤
Here is Eid Look #1 mi amores! I have a thing for suspenders/overalls/jumpsuits/rompers. I never like “over” dressing, I like to keep it classy and chic. Having a proper balance to an outfit can make ANY outfit look amazing, so just play around and use fashion sense. Hijab is from “The Hijab Vault” (one of my FAV hijab companies). Lip color is MAISON from NYX MATTE Lipsticks (perfect for the Fall). As for more details on lippies, accessories they are posted in my previous posts ❤
I had so much fun shooting for this Look Book (as you will see) because… ITS FALL! Feel free to leave feedback and what else you all would like to see ❤
