About

Hello. My name is Amal. I graduated from the University of California, Davis where I received a B.S in Landscape Architecture. Design has been in my life for as long as I can remember, and fashion is no exception. Each piece of clothing, shoes, or accessory for me, is like an element that I have learned to turn into one cohesive landscape -only instead of water fountains, flower, and trees I get to do it with clothes, shoes and jewelry.

For me the world of fashion has always been a little different. I am a Muslim-American, and modesty plays a very big role when it comes to how I dress. So what does that mean for me? It means no mini-skirts, or tank-tops,  shorts or beautiful strapless dresses.

But that is okay. Because it does mean every color jean, fun sweaters and cardigans; beautifully tailored shirts and lots, and lots of shoes and accessories.

So if you are maybe wondering, “Why is this blog so different?”: here is the reason?

On the first glace it may not be. But if you look closely you will see that I am all covered up. People ask me, “Don’t you get hot?” or “Don’t you wish or want to wear a skirt or bathing suit?” And the answer may be yes sometimes, but more so I love where I come from and I love having modesty in my life. Because I hope that it just does not reflect in my fashion sense, but how I carry myself as well.

So what is blog will hopefully provide:

Fashion and modesty, two things that I hope to seam effortlessly. Be it others creations that I style together, or my own that I dream up and sew. I hope that my inspirations can also become yours.

Enjoy and happy fashioning.

  1. I really like what you’re trying to do and I find inspiration here, even though my reason for wearing this style of clothes is completely opposite to yours. (For example, I love to wear very tight-fitting or low-cut tunics with skinny jeans or leggings or create layered outfits with tunics and monochromatic fitted shells). Anyway, your outfits give me some great ideas on what I could incorporate into my style. Keep it up! :-)

    • Thank you very much. It makes me happy to hear that you find inspiration here, because really that is all I want to do.

      Please follow my blog, I will be doing a give away with then next few days, and I would love for you to be a part of it as well!!!
