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).

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 Al-Fitr Looks 2016

Eid Al-Fitr Looks 2016

Just like last year, (cannot believe it has been a year of blogging already!) I posted my looks on what I wore for Eid, and here I am again! I did begin my design in the beginning of Ramadan, thinking “Oh, I will finish it up the night of…” Ha. This year, with being a personal stylist/designer specialist at work I did not finish my Eid outfit *tear*. Thankfully I had back-up outfits from overseas, otherwise it would have been a biiiiiig blah.

I really hope everyone enjoyed Ramadan and Eid with their loved ones, even though it was a difficult one this year with all the mess around the globe, I pray you all safety and love ❤ Here are day 1 and 2 of my Eid looks! The third day I fell sick! I hope you all like them, feel free to leave feed back!

Eid Look #3

Eid Al-Fitr Look #3

Hello Ladies ❤

Thank you all so much for your patience in waiting for this post. Alhamdulilah (Thank God) I am feeling much better than before, appreciate the well wishes from all ❤ I also wanted to say, thank you ALL from across the GLOBE for the love and support with my “Eid Look Book”. It honestly gives me so much happiness ❤ ❤ ❤

I promise you it was worth the wait (I personally like this look out of the other 2). Eid Look #3 is my collaboration with the talented “The Hijab Souq”. This Hijab boutique, has a variety of Hijabs and by variety I mean VARIETY Mashallah. From fancy, to casual, to the color you love they have it all! The Hijab I am wearing here is from one of their most popular lines known as the “Royal Lace Hijab” in the color Black. And all of you alreadyyyy know my love with “black and gold”, this Hijab was love at first sight ❤

A very light-weight material, a little close to crinkle but not so much. Perfect for Spring, Summer and even Fall! The gold lace on the end of the Hijab is a good “over exaggerated” amount, I mean who doesn’t love lace?! This Hijab went P.E.R.F.E.C.T.L.Y. (and every other one)  with my “neutral” Eid Look Book this year (I am still surprised I did neutral tones…). The style I did with this hijab is a “hood” look. So you can see the beautiful lace.

The top I am wearing is a beautiful olive but not olive green shade (ladies, when I said I am doing colors I never do, its the truth). I have been eyeballing this top for a WHILE, so when I saw it on sale I grabbed it right away (why not?!) Plus this kind of work and style is from my culture, so thats another reason 😉

It also has a beautiful embroidered back, with florals. Very light-weight and very comfortable. Ofcourse, I paired it with a black under shirt and black tights, and did a nice nude heel to balance the colors out. For accessories (MY FAVORITE) I used the Embroidered Clutch from The Hijab Souq, another elegant piece (mentioned in my other collab with them), gold bangles, my MK watch and both rings are from my trip to the UAE. Lastly, I did a “pop” of red lips to complete the look!

Aaaaand there you have it ladies, the last and final Eid Look of this Look Book! Be sure to take advantage in these last (2-3) nights of Ramadan. May Allah accept all of our fasts and acts of worship Inshallah Ameen! I would love to hear feed back, whether its through email, DM, or comments you all know I always reply! Again, thank you all for the love and support ❤

Take care ladies, and Inshallah next post with be for Eid! And more collaborations to come from The Hijab Souq ❤

The Hijab Souq- Desert Lace Panel Hijab <3

Hello my pretties! 

Hoping all of you ladies are in good health and happiness Inshallah (God Willing). For those of you who follow me on Instagram (fashion.with.nelo) you have already seen my little “peek” of my collaboration with the one and only “The Hijab Souq”. Many of you were and still are very eager to know when this collaboration would go live and…here it is!

The Hijab Souq is an online Hijab and accessories boutique based in New York City founded by my dear friend Fatema ❤ . This boutique ranges from different Hijab designs, to elegant ones, to even everyday casual designs! As well as matching accessories from Hijab Pins, to Hijab Cushion Pins, clutches, keychains and much much more!

They are very fashion forward, yet very modest ❤ Their Hijabs in which I have fallen in LOVE with are all breathable materials. You know how hectic it can get in the Summer my Hijabi sisters… :-/

The Hijab I am wearing in this post is known as the “Desert Panel Lace Hijab”. How elegant does the name of that just sound to you? ❤  It is made of a light-weight breathable cotton fabric, with a bit of natural wrinkle. The side panels of the Hijab is a elegant and soft lace in which is a good lengthy amount to drape anyway you desire.

I did a very simple Hijab look, because this Hijab itself has so much elegance to it. I pinned it regularly, and took one panel and draped it around my neck and let it just fall into place. Whereas I took the other panel and tucked it in towards the back of my shoulder ❤ I balanced the remaining of the look with a White Waterfall Cotton Cardigan, black tights, and a simple black undershirt. Then lastly, accessorized it with the famous “Embroidered Black and Gold Calligraphy Clutch” also by the Hijab Souq. Do you see my point on how fashion forward they are?!

I have much much more coming from this successful company, let’s just bare one post at a time now ladies ❤ I promise you the wait is worth it just like this one was!  What do you ladies think? I for one, am in love ❤ Until next time, take care my loves!

Much Love,

Nelo .A.
