Fashion Blogger Alliance


August 2, 2015

Toasted Oak Grill & Market

Novi, MI

1st Fashion Blogger Alliance Brunch


I ordered a sweet latte with fancy sugar stick.


Me, Lil Miss JB Style, and Mel

So we were just about ready to quit–well, I know I was. “The style blogging industry is dead in Detroit,” I whined. I’d had enough. I was invited to the Style Expo and was a style judge. This is where my stylish fate was sealed…I met Jordan. We took some selfies, and then she explained to me what she was trying to do. I was interested.


Eden, myself, Jordan, and Mel

We talked, and talked some more. Then we began brainstorming. We met some other cool bloggers along the way. We all complained how there wasn’t enough or this and wasn’t enough of that. We made up our minds that we needed backup and decided to put a call out for other creatives.


A lot of cool style bloggers from the D!

We only expected it be us four…plus two or three others. To our surprise many bloggers were available and interested!


Eden photobombing. Ha!

Shout out to Toasted Oak Grill and Market in Novi for accommodating us rowdy girls.


So our goal is to create a support system and creative platform for Detroit style bloggers to connect to with each other as well as business.

So, we had an overwhelming turnout! Thanks to everyone who attended and made this meetup possible. We will be hosting a blogger meetup at least once a month. And we are excited to see what creative endeavors arise from our new alliance.

Looks like a great time and I really wanted to be there, but my travel thing got in the way. Hope there’s another one!

There is always time for the next event 🙂

Over pizza, a friend and I talked openly about hijab and sexism we’d experienced around it. 
Many people assumed that because I wear hijab it means I’m married. Hence, the idea of a woman wears hijab for a man and not herself or for God. 
She shared a story about going to a club with her hijab and being told that she shouldn’t be there by random Muslim men because she was hijabi. She bluntly replied, “Neither you or I should be in the club as Muslims.” Her story triggered me because I too had been through the same scenario. In addition to that I remember when my ex used to constantly tell me that I didn’t love God enough or I wasn’t Muslim because I doubted wearing hijab. But the chick he ended up going out with, during our marriage, was a non-hijabi 🤔 
My friend said something that resonated with me. “If it’s so easy to wear hijab, then why don’t men do it? They won’t. Because it makes them visible.” Being visibly Muslim, for some of us, isn’t easy. To wear or continue to wear hijab isn’t always easy. So, why are we so harsh on non-hijabis? 
When I went to California this summer, I decided that I was going to wear a bathing suit and ditch my hijab. For so long, I always wondered what it’d be like. Although, I felt guilty for showing my body as a Muslim I also felt empowered because I had the choice. And that I was very much so still Muslim whether I was covered or not. 
As a Muslim woman, I applaud you for wearing hijab, but I also understand if you aren’t there yet. Not all Muslims come in one size fits all. 
What are some common misconceptions about Muslim women that you’ve heard? What’s your take on hijabi vs non-hijabi? And anyone can chime in on this discussion ☕️
