As you can see, none of us are going to be attending Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. (Pause) *Cries eyes out* So kidding. Although some of us are slightly disgruntled to not be apart of the shows, street style, and glam after-parties with mega supermodels, we decided to have our own little NWFW inspired shoot in none other but the D!

So, JB (with the fur) came up with an idea. Let’s play in clothes (what we usually do anyway) and come up with what we’d wear if we were going to attend NYFW. Genius idea. And how can I deny a photoshoot with the baes 🙂

Our goal here was to fake laugh, which turned into full blown cackles, witch laughter, and hooting. lol


Along with our photographer Scott of Worldiction Arts, we welcomed Nigel, the cool videographer.

Shout out to Alua Aumade for the black and white handmade neck piece (jabot). He’s also got some dope bow-ties. Support your local businesses and check out his Etsy.

We’ll be posting pics of the entire photo shoot the entire week of NYFW on all of our blogs. Stay turned, fashionistas.

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 ☕️
