Blogger Meet & Greet with Leah V.

Lakeside Mall: Lord & Taylor

Sterling Heights, MI


(I’m searching for the perfect fall ensemble for my model for the event.)

I was contacted by Nicole, store manager of Lord & Taylor, to talk about their new and improved Plus-Size section including brands from Jessica Simpson, Calvin Klein, and Michel Kors, just to name a few.


(My beautiful model, Amanda Sweet, in her 1st outfit.)

This was Lord & Taylor’s first blogger meet and greet in-store. I decided to get two models and style them live. I also was able to style myself from head to toe in L&T’s plus section.


Strutting her stuff. All black with a splash of flair and color.


Outfit #2 with paparazzi…A.K.A Style bloggers.


Outfit #3 says I work hard, but I play harder.


I also styled my bff, Madinah. Love the warm-toned accents.


Want to give a huge shout-out to all my blogger buddies that came out to support.

Here are my ladies from Style Trifecta.


Lil Miss JB Style was in the house!


Thanks to the friendly customers who stopped by.


Thanks to Nicole who allowed us to rummage through her store. Haha.


Oh, hey, there’s Eden from Chic in the Tropics.


Baby Dallas, Eden, and Thaad.

All smiles 🙂

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 ☕️
