The day started out with a missed flight and a super late arrival to Bloomingdale’s in NYC. I almost gave up and didn’t go at all. I was discouraged because I missed the show. Then I saw some amazing pictures from several official bloggers from the Full Figured Fashion Week crew and got re-inspired.  I hoped on the bus and then the nearest subway with a friend I’d just met and we embarked on a fashion journey…

ny I did my makeup in like two seconds and hoped on the subway.

ny2 The show had just ended. I was so mad!

ny3 I sulked and ate a delicious lemon tart.

ny4 I did what made me feel better: posing 🙂

ny7 Things started to look up. I got to meet a wonderful photographer from Paris. Then I started to meet other cool Stylistahs as well. JOY.

ny5I met a cool gal named Amirah Taylor, the CEO of “Please Feed The Models” and she invited me to a show in NYC in July. Plus we have the same names. Coincidence? Or destiny.

ny8 I had to capture this retro Stylistah. Camelia is a model and a make-up artist. I love the way she mixed all my favorite colors in one. Rockin’ Retro is what I call it.

ny10 Paris is a writer, singer, and creative innovator. And her style is awesome.

ny12 Acting silly with Bumblebee from the Transformers.

ny13 As you can tell, we are engaged . He put a ring on it.

ny14 I told her to give me Fierce and look how the pic turned out. A little midriff and little leg never hurt anyone. NYC style star.

ny15 I found these two adorable young ladies in turbans and blouses. The best of combinations in my opinion. One is sporty, one is skirty. Love it!

 

And I just want to say for the record, the army fatigue shirt I am wearing in these pics has been lost while I was traveling from NYC to Pennsylvania. Tears. I only got to wear it once…

Went to Jummah (Friday prayer for Muslims) today and got a chance to meditate and pray, if only for a few minutes, I took the time out. I’ve been missing Friday prayer lately because I’m too busy doing everything else. Worried about everything else. A journalist and crew came to my apartment yesterday and interviewed me about modest fashion about my relationship with hijab. I told them straight up, I don’t have to dress modestly. I can go buy a pair of short-shorts, show my whole ass. Cuz it’s there *tongue pop* I can throw on my polka dot two-piece bikini and pop it on the gram and get three, four times more likes cuz that’s what folks wanna see all the time now. Like it or not, I could do that and still be Muslim. But my modesty, my head covering (hijab)is something that I choose to do, when it wasn’t a choice a long time ago. It was something forced upon me. That I had to do or else I didn’t love God enough as the next covered gal. It’s something that I do because it connects me spiritually and I’ve reclaimed my choice to dress the way I want. Despite other folk’s opinions on the matter. So, when you see me wrapping my crown, my hijab don’t go “dang, she must be forced to wear that” or “she must be married”. My crown, my hijab isn’t a symbol of oppression. It’s just the opposite. It’s my power that I’ve reclaimed as an individual to express myself how I see fit. So, here’s the video I promised a lot of y’all who’ve been asking for me to show you how to wrap your crown—Muslim or not. Rock what inspires you. Head over to YouTube to watch the step by step process 💁🏽‍♀️ Do you practice modesty in your dress? How do you stay modest in the summer heat? What’s some of the stereotypes you’ve heard or thought about the hijab? All bodies can chime in.
