For the love of the Blazer Cape

Capes are such a major trend right now. Capes usually come in outerwear like jackets, sweaters and blazers. I know this is my third post on a blazer but it just shows how much I love them. When you take a blazer and combine it with a cape, it easily becomes one of my most favorite pieces. Since it is a blazer, it can be worn casual with jeans or you can dress it up with slacks and heels. This long length makes it so versatile. It can be worn with a simple cotton shirt or even a button up shirt. The shirt underneath should not be the same color as the cape because then it just looks messy and you actually look like you have 4 arms. Ha.

This specific cape is inspired by a blazer because it has a notched collar, 2 button closure and front pockets. It can be worn closed but the beauty of this cape is that it should be worn open. This is extra long in length which is great for when you are wearing more fitted pants or when you tuck your shirt in like how I did.

The elegant way a cape falls exudes laid back effortless style.  This cape has shoulder pads like a proper blazer and at times I felt like it wasn’t fully sitting on my shoulders, but it just takes some getting used to. Some cape jackets are extra flowy and some are a little more straight. Being a blazer, this is a little more straight.

For the love of the Bomber Jacket

bomber jacket

bomber jacket

Experimenting with firsts is always refreshing, and I have been thinking of going out of my comfort zone of  jackets with longer lengths and trench coats for a while. In wanting to take the plunge for a jacket of a shorter length, what better than a bomber jacket? I feel like I never found one I loved because it is too bulky on the top and way too short to match my style. I came across this bomber jacket and liked how it is slightly longer in length than standard bomber jackets. Also, it’s not super bulky which is a major plus. (This jacket is unisex).

I purchased this bomber jacket a few months ago and it is one of my favorite jackets for fall. This olive color is everywhere this season. The patches are sewn in and are so unique and add character to this jacket. I love that it even has zips on each hip to zip open if desired. This jacket is made of lightweight nylon and polyester and it hardly wrinkles. There are also quilted patches of the same material and color on the elbows and right shoulder. This would probably be necessary if you were carrying heavy items on your shoulder as it is a bomber jacket but I would like to say it is extra reinforcement for my handbags!

Aren’t there particular items of clothing that you receive compliments on every single time you wear them? Well, this bomber jacket is definitely one of those for me. This is how I knew this jacket needed to be highlighted in my next post. As winter is approaching, I see myself grabbing this jacket more often as I know when it gets colder I will have to store it away till next year. Dare I say this bomber jacket is too damn cool even for myself? Perhaps. Ha.

Oxford shoes: Cole Haan. This cognac color is perfect for fall. (these are my favorite that I have had for years and they are so scuffed and it doesn’t bother me in the least. Cole Haan has great oxfords and they are super comfy. I just purchased my second pair of oxfords from them)

Jeans: Cwonder

Hijab: Printed georgette scarf. I kept it georgette to match the casual look

Lips: LimeCrime in Salem

For the love of the Poncho Sweater

poncho

poncho

When you hear poncho, do you think of a rain cover that is sold at sporting events or theme parks during the rain? Or the woolen garment that is typically worn is South America that has a slit to slip your head through? These thoughts initially would come to my mind first but this poncho is so much more wearable than those. A poncho is a very loose top with or without sleeves that has a small opening at the neck. If you twirl in a circle, the top would resemble a flower from above because it’s so loose and flowy.

gold buttons on the sleeves

gold buttons on the sleeves

This particular poncho has sleeves and it is a turtleneck and that’s why this is ideal for fall. In addition it has gold buttons on the arms to add a little detail. I love that you can wear this poncho with jeans, or even front pleated casual pants.  It would look great with harem pants as well. A poncho is usually worn casual/ casual chic. I wore mine with heels because the heels worked well with the outfit. The one downside is that it’s very hard to wear a jacket with this because of the dolman like sleeves. A poncho can be worn with another poncho jacket, a very loose jacket with dolman sleeves or a capelike jacket.

I realize you have probably never seen a poncho worn with another shirt underneath but this poncho was simply too short for me to wear separately and be comfortable with it. So I wore this poncho with a longer cotton shirt underneath to keep the casual materials in sync. I also wore a crushed georgette hijab to complement the casual look. You always have to wear what you are comfortable with; it doesn’t always have to stick with the norms because at times you wont be comfortable with the norms.

For the love of the Long Sleeved Jumpsuit

jumpsuit

jumpsuit

This post was necessary since the day I started my blog. Without debate, my absolute favorite article of clothing is a jumpsuit. A jumpsuit is one piece, from top to bottom usually with a uniform print. Long sleeved jumpsuits are my favorite because it is the easiest way to look put together. It would be a no brainer outfit because the outfit is already complete. I have a bunch of long sleeved jumpsuits, and I wear them any chance I get.

jumpsuit

jumpsuit

With jumpsuits, accessorizing is key, because the accessories would be the differentiating factor. This is why it can be worn classy or casual with jewelry/heels to dress it up and flats to dress it down. I bought this jumpsuit months ago and I’ve worn it a few times but never got a chance to make a post. This camouflage print is perfect for fall but since it is an artisitic camo print and due to the mustard yellow, it can be worn any season.

backview

backview

Buying a jumpsuit can be difficult. It has to fit you well and sometimes you have to purchase one size larger because it’s just one piece and there has to be enough room to allow you to easily move. There are mainly 2 different styles to a jumpsuit. My particular favorite style is when the entire top is loose with slightly dolman shaped arms with a belt to bring in the waist. The pants should be loose on the hips and thighs but taper down to a small leg opening. It gives for a great overall shape and I feel it is still modest. If you get the right size, it is actually slimming. The excess fabric makes you look smaller and the waist can be tightened or loosened to your likening.

waist up

here you can see the belt

The other jumpsuit style would be fitting on the arms and chest/waist with pants that are fitted on the upper hips and then go straight down like palazzo pants and are usually wide. I feel like this style does not flatter my body. This style of jumpsuit is usually more dressy. I’ve seen this style in a structured material which is a great office look to evening and I’ve also seen it in a clingy material like spandex and that looks like it’s from the disco era. Ha.

I bought a floral printed jumpsuit from Zara a few months ago and even though it is short sleeved it has this same shape like this camo print jumpsuit. With, my short sleeved jumpsuits, I pair them with a blazer or wear connecting sleeves or a top underneath.

For the love of the 10 minute Dessert Dish

and it tastes better than it looks

and it tastes better than it looks!

The food part of my blog is always neglected and so this post is strictly food! This is the first recipe I am posting on my blog and it’s hardly a recipe. It’s the quickest way to put together a dessert dish if you are hosting a party or attending a party and are strapped for time. This kind of seems to be describing my life lately. (Believe it or not but I rarely cook). This recipe is a rendition of Paula Deen’s Banana Split Ice Cream recipe. I dislike bananas in dessert and so I excluded it from the recipe.

Ingredients:

1. 9×13 inch pan

2. 24 ice cream sandwiches

3. Sugar cones

4. Toffee bits

5. Caramel syrup

6. Chocolate syrup

7. Heavy Cream

8. Sugar

yum

yum

Directions:

1. Place ice cream sandwiches on the bottom of the pan. It takes about 11 and a half sandwiches to cover the bottom of the pan.

2. Crush the sugar cones on the top of the ice cream sandwiches. I crushed about 6 cones.

3. Sprinkle toffee bits on top of the crushed cones- I used Hershey’s Heath and you can buy it in the baking section. If you prefer to put bananas, strawberries etc you can add it in this layer.

4. Place second layer of ice cream sandwiches.

5. Whip heavy cream to make whipped cream. I love fresh whipped cream and so I whipped it myself. You can totally bypass this step by using Cool Whip if you would like. To make whipped cream, pour heavy cream in a blender. I use a cup whipped cream to about 2 tablespoons of sugar to make it sweet whipped cream and you can use more or less sugar to cater to your sweetness level. Turn on the blender until its thick and does not move. You don’t have to use a blender and can whip by hand. Place on top of the ice cream sandwiches

6. Drizzle caramel syrup and chocolate syrup on top of the whipped cream.

7. Sprinkle toffee bits on top.

8. Place in freezer until it is time to serve

Serves about 10-12

** Sorry for being missing in action for an embarrassingly long amount of time. I think when Ramadan came, I had no time to blog because I was super busy. And I feel like reality and life hit and it made me feel like I wasn’t prioritizing by blogging when so many important things are going on in the world. Life came at me fast and I had much to cater to. I have some posts lined up for the next few weeks/months. Thanks for reading! Xoxo

For the love of the Boyfriend Jean

boyfriend jean

boyfriend jean

Boyfriend Jeans are loose and are cut parallel to men’s jeans. They are baggy around the hips/thighs and tend to taper slightly from the knees down. Often you can wear the jeans rolled up. With these jeans I unrolled the jeans so they fit me full length. Boyfriend jeans look great with sandals, flats, and super high heels/stilettos and pumps as well.

Last weekend I bought my first pair of boyfriend jeans and I have lived in them the entire week so I knew I had to make a post on them. I purchased them from Gap and they were on sale for 40% off. A lot of boyfriend jeans have heavy rips in them and I steer clear of those. These don’t have any rips. I know H&M has boyfriend jeans that have rips but they are covered and so it doesn’t show skin. I want to buy those next!

This is a super laid back casual outfit. I’m wearing a high low top with it. To avoid looking exceptionally baggy, I tucked the shirt in at the front. Boyfriend jeans are great because they are so loose that I am able to wear my shorter shirts with them. To complete my super casual laidback look, I opted for no eyeliner and no lipstick; hope you were still able to recognize me! Ha. I wore a cotton headscarf to keep the material of each article of clothing consistent.

What is the best thing about boyfriend jeans?! No actual boyfriend is required. Ha. I felt this look was similar to looks from: ManRepeller.com. Below, I uploaded moving pictures. This is the first time I ever added them to my blog posts. What do you think of it? I feel like I’m awkwardly dancing in the second one.

For the love of the Boho Chic Top

boho top

boho top

As warmer weather rolls around, what better time to wear a light and airy boho chic top than now? I love cotton tops for spring and summer because it keeps you cool. Spring is finally peaking here in NYC and so it was the perfect time to do this post.

This top is from Avow Apparel. It’s a new company that launched their Spring collection this March. Their fall line will be at New York Fashion Week at Relief on the Runway this September. I had the pleasure of bumping into Christina of Avow Apparel completely random at the rental car service in California. When there is something that makes you noticeably a Muslim (hijab in my case) it causes others to say Salaam (greeting Muslims say to one another meaning peace be upon you) and vice versa. An extra smile, Salaam and head nod can start up a conversation and that’s exactly what happened in this encounter.

turban style hijab

I can’t explain to you how unbelievably soft this top is. You totally feel like you are wearing nothing. It’s so light, breathable and soft but it’s double lined and it is not see through at all. The extra embroidery at the chest and the snap button details at  the arms make this top unique. The high low loose flow makes it a warm weather staple.

Christina told me her company was based upon a woman being spiritual, feminine and free. When she told me this, I politely smiled and nodded. When you hear what a company is supposed to be, sometimes you just smile and nod because you only half believe it and you have to actually see the clothes and wear them to believe it.  After putting on this top and doing my photoshoot with Antar of IAMSHOOTER I have to promise you I do believe what she said. I was at such ease while wearing this top and during the photoshoot. There was no worrying about if the dress flattered me from one side over the other or me wondering if it made me look fat or frumpy. I knew the top looked great at every angle and it’s loose enough that it hides any problem areas you may think you have. Also, I love the length of this top; it’s long enough to enable me to wear them with my (loose) skinny jeans.

tunnel

This modest top made me feel so effortlessly boho chic. Not to mention the many compliments I got while wearing the top. This top is the Poet Maxi Top and I also have the Wandering Star Top which is extremely loose and flowy. The Bohemian Dreams Top didn’t fit quite right due to my exceptionally long torso. If you want a more fitted top you can try the Zahra top. The rest of them are very figure concealing but not in a plastic bag kind of way, but rather an effortlessly chic super feminine kind of way.

I need to stop with this pose, no really

For the love of the High Waisted Palazzo Pant

high waisted palazzo pants

high waisted palazzo pants

I bought my first pair of high waisted palazzo pants and they are so effortlessly chic and super modest. I have pants that are mid to almost high waist but this is the first pair of pants that I own that are truly high waisted and actually sit on your natural waist. I wore it with a simple cotton top which was too long. I shortened the top to more properly show the full shape of the high waist and the loose flow. The easiest way to shorten a top is by tying a knot on the side and that’s exactly what I did. It did make me reminiscent of the 80’s when girls wore loose tie dyed tops and tied a knot or used a small clip to make the knot. I believe when I wore it for this shoot, it didn’t look quite like the 80’s, or did it? ha.

crossed legs lake

By tying the knot on the side, it created a ruched effect which is great at minimizing the waist and hiding a belly (my stomach has more so become my problem area after pregnancies and it’s OK with me). I also love the slight bell shape of the sleeves. This totally enhances and goes with the look of the pants and adds a great voluminous overall shape. I realize the shirt could have still been a couple of inches shorter but this was the length I was comfortable at wearing it.

Outfit of the day (OOTD) details:

High waisted palazzo pant: Rachel Zoe. Rachel Zoe is a celebrity stylist for the stars and I love her style. It’s super effortless, modest and classy. (I wasn’t such a huge fan when she was going through her whole boho stage) I am kind of in love with her. I met her at a book signing when I was in California last month. After I met her I knew I wanted to do a post on these pants as soon as possible. I was just waiting for the weather to get a little warmer even though I bought the pants about 2 months prior. These pants are 100% silk and that makes the fall of the pants perfection. Added benefit: these pants hardly wrinkle. At the end of the post, I am attaching the pic I have with Rachel Zoe in case you missed it when I uploaded it to my instagram account @sanahrashid.

Simple cotton top: Gap.

Studded platform pumps: Brian Atwood. Well, of course you must pair Rachel Zoe with Brian Atwood. Is this being obnoxious? Perhaps, but I would like to think I styled these pants well.

Fringe bib necklace: Kenneth Jay Lane purchased on sale at ruelala.com

For the love of the Long Sleeve Long Dress

 

long sleeve long dress swinging

long sleeve long dress swinging

I realize this title is super general but I chose it because a long sleeve long dress is perfection. It’s a one piece go to. It can be easily accessorized with a belt, blazer, cardigan, vest etc. This post is also dedicated to my love for the long sleeve long dress and my own gradual transformation of adding it to my wardrobe and my acceptance of it. I have to admit I have never ever been a fan of dresses. I kind of sit obnoxiously at times, with my feet up and it’s very hard to do when you are wearing a dress/skirt. Also, a lot of long dresses don’t flatter me in the least. They are either way too loose or way too fitted. I could never find modest fitted dresses and so I steered clear of them for the longest time.

 

long sleeve long dress swings

long sleeve long dress swings- grilling my photographer ha

 

So what changed and why do I wear more dresses/skirts? It is simply because dresses are now so much more trendy with gorgeous detailing and flattering fits mixed with beautiful prints. Also, the look you get with pants and a top can’t compare to the flow of wearing a one piece dress. I think this has a huge thing to do with the impact of modest fashion in the fashion industry. I could have never imagined it would be so easy to find a long sleeve long dress at the shopping malls, regular retail stores and online. Essentially this dress is almost like an abaya/jilbab right? I purchased this dress recently and was so excited to wear this dress and do this post/shoot especially because I wanted to share my own transformation of wearing more dresses with you all. (Outfit of the day details below)

Outfit of the day details (OOTD)

Cotton long sleeve long dress: Rachel Pally. I love this dress because it has a tie waist and the Aztec/Tribal print makes it super trendy. The soft colors with the hint of coral makes it wearable in the spring and summer as well. This NYC cold allowed me to perfectly pair it with a fur vest.

Fur vest: Michael Kors. I also wore this vest here and this entire post was dedicated to it. (Obviously I wore this with a vest because why would you hide the beauty of the fact that this dress is long sleeved by covering it up with a blazer or cardigan.)

Linen scarf: Sachi

For the love of the ICNYU Gala

program for the evening

program for the evening

On Sunday February 23rd, The Islamic Center at New York University (ICNYU) held a fundraiser gala to mark 35 years. I attended with one of my friends. Living in NYC my whole life I bumped into many friends and familiar faces that evening. It was a black tie event and everyone looked fab!

Sadia, Amira and I

Sadia, Amira and I

I graduated 6 years of pharmacy school back in 2007 from St Johns University and directly after was distracted by huge milestones in my life including licensing exams, starting a job,  hajj, pregnancy, birth of my first son, pregnancy and birth of my second son etc. During this time, I felt disconnected with my Islamic community mostly because I didn’t have enough time to attend events and my university- St Johns University rarely held events or I would not get notifications of these events.

ICNYU holds tons of events and I always knew when they were having events due to emails, facebook and word of mouth. I have attended lots of different events in the past. I have been familiar with ICNYU for over a decade, since back when I was in college and because my elder sister attended NYU. More recently I started coming to events at NYU and I never ever felt out of place. The Muslim community at NYU is so diverse and welcoming and it truly depicts Muslims across America. This is one reason why I wanted to attend this fundraiser. The IC at NYU caters to the Muslim population in NYC and it caters to it well.

Laila and Bari

Below are pictures of highlights from the event also including pics of my friends and I and unnecessary solo shots of myself. My apologies in advance.

kaftan

 

I wore a kaftan which I just purchased from my recent trip to Dubai. I blogged about my trip and you can read all about it here. This beaded and jeweled kaftan was only $40! I thought this gala would be the perfect opportunity to wear it. This Kaftan has light shoulder pads which enhances the shape and flow of the dress. It’s very loose but it has an inside tie belt which practically makes it one size fits all.

 kaftan

kaftan

I paired the kaftan with a turban hijab. This turban hijab was unique because I used 2 cloths. The green cloth on the turban is perfectly matching my kaftan because it was the extra pieces that I had to get hemmed from the bottom of the kaftan because it was extremely long. The 2 inch extra cloth was perfectly wrapped in the gold turban hijab and made both the turban and kaftan complement each other. The heavy detailed neckline required no necklace because that would be excessive.
