Lee & Zee Apparel- Eid Collaboration

Lee & Zee Apparel- Eid-Al-Fitr 2018 Collaboration

First and foremost, Ramadan Mubarakladies! I pray and hope this Ramadan is going well for everyone, with positivity and happiness Inshallah (God Willing). And we all know what we prepare for after Ramadan right…Eid! Ramadan always flies by extremely fast, and next thing we know its time to prepare for Eid ❤ What’s more exciting than preparing your Eid oufit right? #girlthings.

This time, I had the honor and collaborated with a new Modest clothing boutique named “Lee & Zee Apparel”. From Abayas, to long-sleeved non-see-through shirts (every Hijabis dream), chic dresses, AND magnetic Hijab pins (yes you read that right!) they’ve got it all! Every collection on their website is VERY Hijab friendly and some pieces that are beyond elegant such as their most famous, the “Open Lace Abaya” in two of my favorite colors “Black”and “Mauve”.

The Abaya is made out of soft fabric, that drapes so elegantly once worn. Ladies, the best part of this Abaya is you can style and wear it with literally ANYTHING. How I styled this look, is with a simple black turtle neck and black tights, and pop of nude with my jersey Hijab-Turban and heels. I personally felt, these tones balanced the look very elegantly, not too much and not too less for an Eid look. The lace design on the Abaya is so intricate, that to keep a simple under garment is very important, otherwise ladies…you’ll be in trouble :-).

The other look I had in mind was a long black maxi until my ankles, a nude Hijab and heels. And lastly, this Abaya can be worn openly like a long gown, and have an “all white” look would definitely make a statement as well. Have your pick! But hey, if you want to be extra… go for it 😉 Nothing wrong with being a teeeenie bit extra on Eid.

I already know you ladies are oohing and aahing over all this information, so for further details and information please head on over to their website, http://www.leeandzeeapparel.com and follow their Instagram page @LeeAndZeeApparel. 

Lastly, 15% of their profit goes to Palestine during this beautiful month of Ramadan ❤ We all must support one another, help each other grow in our dreams and goals, and not let each other down.

Here’s how I styled this beautiful Abaya, do let me know what you ladies think! Happy-Eid-Shopping lovelies!

Much love,

Nelo .A.

Radiant Pearls

My oh, my! How are my beautiful ladies doing? I hope all of you are well and in good health Inshallah (God Willing). I also hope everyone had an amazing Eid-Al-Adha, and whoever went for Hajj (Holy Pilgrimage) returned safely home to their loved ones Inshallah (God Willing). And lastly…HAPPY FALL.

I know I have been a busy bee for a while, but that’s not an excuse! I am actually so thrilled to share this post with you because it has been QUITE an adventure with this blog post (ladies, you have no idea). BUT! Being the crazy perfectionist that I am, and the insane wind I was dealing with (and rain)..I DID IT.

I believe we have officially entered “Fall” today. That fall crisp air, smell of fresh wood, and that chilly breeze was all there (minus the rain). All I am waiting for is for the trees to finally change colors, because that beauty always strikes me Subhanallah (Glory be to God). With that said, I am honored (again) to say that here is another Collaboration with the most talented HIjab companies ever, The Hijab Souq (Keep it up Fatima).

Here ladies, the Hijab that I am wearing is from the “Radiant Pearls” Collection, in the color “Dark Red”. This piece, has pearls not only on one edge, but all around with a tiny chain detail. The Hijab is VERY wide (which is so helpful to keep a good coverage) and you can literally do any style without being concerned if your back/neck/hair is showing.

I did a simple draped Hijab, but had the pearls hang down my right shoulder so you ladies can see how beautifully it is made. And before you ladies ask me…”what about dark lips?!” I actually decided on a nice neutral tone, to balance it with the Hijab. Otherwise, Fall and Dark lips? Yes please.

I kept my outfit “All Black” ofcourse, because again I did not want to take any attention away from the Hijab. The Hijab is of linen & cotton blend, so totally breathable and comfortable for any season and occasion. This piece also comes in a variety of colors such as nude, yellow, blue, gray, beige, and black! To place your order visit http://www.thehijabsouq.com

Aaaaaand there you have it ladies of another wonderful collaboration, feel free to comment below I would love to hear your feed back as always! Much more to come soon Inshallah (God Willing).

What I am wearing here ladies, is known as the “Joy” lace cardigan. I mean the name honestly speaks my heart…its gorgeous! A very light-weight cardigan that fits every size, and it is available in a few light colors as such. I personally like oversized items, so the size I am wearing is an X-large. A perfect piece to either dress it up or dress it down, either way you can never go wrong with lace. Such an elegant touch to any outfit.

To balance the rest of my look, I paired the cardigan with a black top, khaki/nude skinny high-waisted pants, nude scarf, white block heels, and a white cross body purse. Voila! The location I wanted to use was for this shoot had to be fun and colorful, whats better than graffiti wall art? ❤

Neutrals & Pearls

Happy Friday Ladies! 

My, oh my! I know my last blog post was my “Eid Looks”, and I did not post after that in which I apologize dearly! But if you follow me on Instagram (@fashion.with.nelo) I have been active there…(I know, that’s not an excuse). But I am here now, and back with another…COLLABORATION!

 From the title, you ladies guessed it...”Neutrals & Pearls”. Okay, honestly this look was SO difficult for me to handle, because I cannot pull of neutrals *tear*. No matter HOW much I have tried, I just cannot! Some tips ladies?! Nothing wrong in learning some neutral tone tips ahhhhh. Even though during this photo-shoot I did get compliments BUT still (oh the things I do for you ladies ❤ ).

Re-introducing the one and only…The Hijab Souq ❤ Do I really have to tell you ladies (again) on how GREAT their Hijabs are?! Mashallah. The Hijab I am wearing here is the “Beige Pearl Hijab”. This is probably the most Summer friendly Hijab I own, literally. A very breathable-light-weight-cotton fabric, with hand-beaded single pearls attached all along the width of the Hijab.

I always like to keep my Hijab styles very simple, but elegant and thats exactly what I did here. I thought to myself “how can I really show these pearls, but in a different way?” Voila! Looks like a side braid doesn’t it?! I cannot tell you ladies how much I adore it (I love how I’m complimenting myself). But the secret is…it’s not a braid! And guess what…if you ladies REALLY like this Hijab look, I can do my first “official” Hijab tutorial woohoo! Just comment below.

As for my outfit, I did not want to take any attention away from the Hijab so I did a simple white button down top from H&M, gaucho pants from H&M, nude heels from Charlotte Russe, Chanel handbag from Chanel and some of my basic accessories.

And that’s a wrap my loves ❤ Feel free to comment below. To get your own Pearl Hijab and many other Hijabs visit, http://www.thehijabsouq.com

Much, Much Love ❤

Eid Look #1

EID Al-Fitr 2016 Look #1

Happy Weekend!

How are all of my ladies from around the globe doing? How is Ramadan going for all of you? I hope Ramadan is going well and has brought very good changes in the all of you (including me) Inshallah (God Willing). Can you believe we are already in the Last 10 days? Subhanallah (Glory be to God). A week before Ramadan I took out all of my Abayas, ironed them and hung them nicely for Tarawih Prayers. And now, we are at the end of the month.

May Allah accept all of our worship and fasts during the beautiful month and that we live to see the next Inshallah (God Willing) Ameen. It has been a year of my blogging life, and I am so overwhelmed with the love I have received from each and every single one of you. Not only from the States, but from across the world! Thank you all so much. If it wasn’t for the love, I probably wouldn’t be where I am today ❤

Last year I did the “Eid Look Book” and honestly I was kind of hesitant about my looks. Everyones style is different, so thought what the outcome would be. And Alhamdulilah (Thank God) it was very positive. All of my Eid looks were loved by all of you, and this time I am way more confident in sharing more inspirations with you all ❤

I have kept a color scheme for this Look Book. I have worked with all neutral tones. The reason I did so, was because neutrals can go with any skin color, and I have come to realize that. This Summer I pushed myself to wear more nudes/blush tones. And surprisingly, I kind of like it. So for those of you who are worried, don’t be! Trust me, you will look fabulous!

Many of you loved and I mean LOVED the sequins look I did last Eid. So thought why not do something similar but different this year. Again, all neutral tones but added a bit of sparkle to it ❤ I balanced the entire look with a Black Hijab (you can never go wrong with black) and a nice shade lippie. I mixed and matched gold and silver (which I never do) and thats that! What do you ladies think? Feel free to leave comments below! Stay tuned for another look in a few days!

Much Love,

Nelo .A.

The Hijab Vault- Embroidered Hijab

Jummah Mubarak Ladies

Let me begin this post with… ALHAMDULILAH (Thank God). We have had none stop rain, for the past 2 1/2 weeks now and the sun FINALLY came out today! I have nothing against rain, there are many countries that do not get a drop of rain. Rain is a blessing, it is the mercy of God upon us. Just seeing this beautiful sun after weeks, makes you really wonder about how powerful weather can be in general, and how amazing it is how He controls it ❤ Subhanallah (Glory be to God).

With that said! Do you ladies remember how I kept mentioning in my last few posts I have great collaborations coming up? Well, here is ONE of them 😉 I have collaborated with this Hijab company before, and thankful to be part of it once again… The Hijab Vault ❤

This Hijab here ladies, is known as the “Maroon Embroidered Hijab” this new Summer Collection comes in 3 rich colors- Maroon, Emerald Green & Navy. First off, I am OBSESSED with how elegant this Hijab is (totally my style), and second the material ❤ ❤ ❤ I for one, cannot deal with heavy weight Hijabs during the warm weather. It is a very light-weight cotton/linen breathable fabric, in which you do not have to worry about being “too hot” with the Summer approaching. And lastly the embroidery, the detail in so precious you literally just want to stare at it. This color combination is fit to style almost ANY and EVERY look (daytime or nighttime).

With this Hijab collection, this is your final “touch” to have a balanced outfit. Its not too much and not too less. Which is exactly how I styled my look with this Hijab. I was heading out to a Cafe this night, so I wore a simple Beige Maxi Dress, and had my Maroon Hijab draped around me and just accessorized the rest of the look! It made this very simple Maxi dress, a great outfit of the “night” and  can also be a outfit of the “day”. It all really depends how you put it together!

I had received tremendous amount of compliments on this Hijab and my outfit that night by BOTH Muslims and Non Muslims (heart melts from happiness). All my girls were snap-chatting me asking where this Hijab was from… and of course I flipped my Hijab and said “The Hijab Vault…” ❤

Al Zahra Boutique

Hello my pretties!

How was everyones Thanksgiving break? Food coma much? I know the feeling! I hope all of you had an amazing Thanksgiving with family and friends ❤ Mines was great Alhamdulilah (Thank God). I spent it all day cooking, but its always worth it. I spoil my family every year with delicious recipes, so they better be thankful for me! Jk. Oh! Lets not forget “Black Friday” shopping… now who found great deals? Because I def. did and will share with you all soon! (That’s the reason I have not posted a F.F.F. yet)

In this post I will be sharing a very elegant piece with you all, the “Burgundy Butterfly Kaftan” from my dear friends boutique known as “Al Zahra Boutique”. This online boutique offers a variety of beautiful detailed pieces. They also offer elegant jewelry pieces to give your Kaftan that final touch ❤ The Butterfly Kaftan comes in other colors as well, but me being me, I love darker tones. And what’s better than Burgundy for this season?!

This design is made of soft Georgette fabric, with a full lining of light-weight fabric underneath (full sleeved lining) aren’t you already loving it?! For us hijabis, we either have to go look for a matching undershirt or just wear a black one to balance it out. But this design has your back! It is beautifully draped with a gorgeous rust gold lace applique around the waist,on the shoulders and perfectly fitted cuff sleeves.

I styled this look with a leopard print mini jacket, a black chiffon scarf, gold accessories, nude clutch, nude heels and a dark brown lip color. This style is perfect for any evening occasion, the fur I added for a little more elegance to balance the look. Other than that, be creative and stylize anyway you want!

Fall comfort.

 

HAPPY FRIDAY LADIES

Hoping all of you had a wonderful week, and a great weekend to look forward to! This is probably my 9435746047636 time apologizing but…I’M SORRY! I have been caught up in so many things (I cannot WAIT to share with you all). I am seriously, so thankful that you all LOVE the outfits I find and share with you all. I did reply to ALL of your emails/messages regarding this, so ladies… FRIDAY FASHION FINDS are back on track, woohoo!

 The weather here in the U.S. has been very bipolar lately, it either gets VERY cold or VERY warm. Weird, right? This is a VERY comfortable “Fall” look. It’s not too warm, yet it still will keep you from the chilly weather. This outfit can be worn anywhere, any day! If you want to switch the shoes to boots, go right ahead ❤

I know I have mentioned before, I do not look good in white, but this is a soft tone of white with a mixture of grey. I couldn’t help myself (said no girl ever) but  I also bought one in black! The prices are INSANE, see it for yourself!

Fashion Finds:

Shrug: Nordstrom Rack. Original price $48, on sale for $15. Yup, 15$! Its very soft, comfortable and so chic.

Printed Jersey Tights: Sears. Original Price $14.95 on sale for $4.99. Oh I know you’re surprised, I was too trust me. Extremely comfortable with a lot of stretch.

Black Purse: Target. Original Price 34.99, on sale for $12.99. I cannot express how many compliments I get with wearing this. For those of you who have not visited Target, please do. The accessories are very cute, and you can always find amazing deals.

Flats/Shoes: Urban Outfitters. Original price $50, on sale for $9. “Whaaaaaaaat?!” you say? Exactly my expression at the register. So, these shoes were reduced to $20, which was fine because they are BEYOND comfortable, it’s like you’re walking on clouds, I am not kidding. So I found my size, stood in line and it ringed up as $9. I was so, so happy, who wouldn’t be?!

Sunglasses: I did not purchase them from here, they were gifted to me from the UK ❤

Watch: You already know…MK

Earrings: Forever 21. These are mentioned a few times in my last posts, I just accessorized them with this look.

Well, what did you ladies think?! I am sure many of you loved the prices on these looks ❤ if you did please feel free to share! Or any wonderful shopping experience you had that your sale item was reduced even more! Stay tuned for next weeks F.F.F. ❤ ❤ ❤

Love & Peace,

Nelo .A.

The beauty of Fall

Hello ❤

Before I begin, I want to give a huge THANK YOU to all of you who show so much love and support for my blog posts. It honestly does take ALOT of time and effort, and knowing there are people across the GLOBE loving what you do, is just overwhelming, thank you ❤

With that said, how are all of my fashionistas doing? I do not know about all of you, but I am loving how “more” cool that “fall” crisp air has become! I can literally smell firewood from some chimneys in my neighborhood (that smell is so delicious).

Fall is that time of year when the air and scenery around you just, changes. I love to just sit there and stare at the trees transforming, leaves falling, clear fall nights, and gorgeous fall sunsets. Everything is extra beautiful during Fall, too beautiful. Don’t you agree?

I cannot express to all of you how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE FALL. LIKE LOVE! This post was suppose to be my first “Official Fall Post”, but I got caught up with so much, that I did not have the time until now to post this 😦 Better late than never right?!

 My family and I took a trip to a farm nearby to just enjoy the outdoors and get into that Fall “vibe”. There’s a lovely pumpkin patch ( I find the white pumpkins adorable), hayrides, caramel apples, kettle corn, corn mazes, and so much more! I cannot sit here and explain how beautiful everything looked, so it’s better for you to see for yourselves!
