Rabia Z Does It Again

My all time favorite islamic fashion designer Rabia Z did it again Queens. She managed to come up with the most banging  Fall Collection for 2011. I would personally like to think she took my suggestions that I left on her fan page, about making more modern, urban pieces (Big Smile), but even if she didn't, I'm glad she did. These pieces  can be worn by any modest fashionista, hijabi or not, muslim or non muslim. Take a look for yourselves.

Why You Can't Get Married

Seems like sooooo many women are having man problems. Men afraid of commitment, men that have five girlfriends at the same time, men living with a woman for years on end with marriage nowhere in sight. And the question is why? I truly believe that women have more control over this situation than most think they have.

Conventional advice in magazines like Glamour and Cosmopolitan will have you thinking to get a man, all you have to do is bend over backwards (literally and physically), and be the ultimate sex goddess in order to get and keep a man. Be flirty and you're sure to grab the man of your dreams attention. I mean honestly, now days a woman will give a man sex and he doesn't even have to buy her a Happy Meal from McDonald's. Even with all this advice about being an independent sex goddess, women are still single and trying to figure things out.

I think that conventional modern dating is the reason why women are finding themselves single, and that perhaps the wisdom and ways of old will find women feeling worthy and headed down the alter (more frequently) again. I mean think about it, back in the day our grandmother's and great-grand mothers didn't have a problem getting a husband and it was mostly due to the fact that people "courted" not dated, families were involved, and the women weren't had higher standards, weren't  giving up sex to every Tom, Dick, and Harry that got her excited, and weren't out chasing  the men.

Maybe you think I'm old fashioned, and overly opinionated, but the statistics speak for themselves. I would love to see a return to old fashion courtship, were parents advice (which is usually right), is taken into serious consideration, and "dates" were the kind that were planned and thought out, and didn't end with being in bed with a complete stranger.

As you all know, I am Muslim. In Islam boyfriend/girlfriend relationships are not permissible, yet getting married is very important, and highly advisable. People get to know each other, by chaperoned visits, or outings (usually the father, older brother, or another person who knows the woman very well, and has her best interest in mind). A woman has her full rights, and should never be forced to marry someone she doesn't want to according to Islamic rule (sadly this happens in some countries today). Ironically, these marriages have a higher success rate, than those who went the whole I met him at a bar route.

I would love to hear from those of you who ditched traditional, modern dating, and found your dream guy by way of courtship or other forms of non traditional match making. Share your story of how this can work in the modern world, for the modern woman.

My earnest prayer is that each and every woman feel worthy again. Worthy of love,  and understanding her worth. May Allah make every woman feel worthy again ....Ameen.

Fall Fashion Trends 2011

Hey Queens, I hope all is well with everyone. I have been super busy, but not too busy to keep up with the latest and greatest in fashion. I know summer is really just getting under way, but I couldn't help noticing the super cute fall clothes that will soon be headed our way in a few months. Most of the clothes are a fall preview from Gucci's 2011 Fall line. Knee high boots, and dark opaque tights are definite must haves for this fall, as well as a pop of color. I notice that lady like silhouettes are still going strong for the fall, and I must admit I am glad. It's all about being a lady. Military jackets and trench coats with a feminine twist are also going to be fall staples. Take a look!

Modest Sea Swimwear

Ok, it's summer time, it's hot, everyone is hitting the beach and the pools, and you want to also, but you want to look nice at the same time. Swimming for me since I've become a modest fashionista has always been a sticky area, because I don't like looking weird. I'm not one of those women that  feel comfortable jumping into the pool or hitting the beach fully clothed (I'm just not accustomed to doing that), but when I saw the selection at this website, I was over the moon and  of course had to share with you guys. I am SO in love with their selection of head wear/swimwear. The name of the site is Modest Sea. They have by far the best selection of modest swimwear I've ever seen. The fact that there is FREE US Shipping & International Shipping available makes it just that more irresistible. I highly suggest you head on over to Modest Sea  so you can get your swim on in STYLE!! Let me know what you guys think of this site!
