For the love of DC

I came to DC with some friends to attend the ISNA convention. ISNA stands for Islamic Society North America and the ISNA convention is a convention held annually which brings speakers from all across America to enlighten us with some great lectures and workshops. There is also a bazaar which has clothes, paintings, furniture, jewelry etc from all over. It’s great to hang out with friends from near and far because these conventions bring tons of people together from all over.

I finally met Farrah of Greater Lenghts!

I finally got to meet some people I have been networking with. One of them is Farrah of go to Greater Lengths . She’s awesome and I love her blog! You can read all about it here. She did a great section on ISNA as well entitled Modest Marvel and highlighted girls who she thought were dressed fashionably and modest and it is definitely worth checking! I spent a good amount of time at the bazaar because of the great hijab shopping. I bought hijabs from KottonLove and Zeena. I also bought hijabs from Zeena when I went to Fashion Fighting Famine in California. I love their unique prints! I bought a headscarf with chains on it. I am loving chains as a print and wearing chunky chains as well. It’s definitely a trend this season.

Monday we did tons of sightseeing with the kiddies. We went to the Smithsonian Institute- National Air and Space museum and there was no admission fee! And I was surprised it was actually open because it was labor day (in NYC everything is closed). It’s so great to see different cities and how they each function uniquely. We also did touristy stuff and went to the National monument, Reflection Pool and Lincoln’s Memorial.

**I will be attending a show during New York Fashion Week, NYFW, as I was invited by a designer- Ashley of AP for Women. Her latest collection is Mod Lux. You can see a preview of what she will be showcasing in NYFW by clicking here. I love how she mixes modesty and fashion. Sound familiar? I can’t wait to see what she has in store for the runway. There are some outstanding pieces!

    • Its kind of hard to explain in writing but let me try. The main thing is that you tie the knot in the front, on the top of your head and twist the two sides like a braid down one side of your head, Then you tuck the remainder in the back. Hope that helped! And I checked your blog! You have great sense of style! My favorite looks were: sweethearts and the grraphic print and green peplum. Take care and stay modest!

  1. Do you know of any stylist in the DC/Baltimore area that can style someone trying to mix Islamic and american style? I want to cover but I don’t want to look like I’m wearing a potato sack. I see women dressing so cool and nice but covered and I can’t seem to get the right layered look.
