Thinking about Eid

What should I wear to the Eid celebration? This is a question some of you are asking yourselves already. I have a couple of ideas. If you’re going to order something from an on-line shop now would be the time to do so. (Especially if you’re short like me and need to have things altered). Here are a couple of my ideas:

A simple but elegant West African-style skirt/shirt combo. This outfit is available for $27 at African Apparels

Another set available from African Apparelsfor only $35. I’m thinking about ordering on of these insha’allah.

I like this style of abaya. I realized I don’t own one and would like to. It’s available at AlKaram Abayas for $80. Fortunately, one my local Islamic clothing stores carries these so I’ll probably buy one from there, insha’allah, instead of ordering it.

Here another comfortable style from Al Karam. Though the color doesn’t work for me personally I can some other sisters looking FABULOUS in it. The set goes for $75.

I have been salivating over this dress for months now. I know not every sister is “bold enough” to pull off the Turquoise but I am, lol. It’s from Artizara and costs $90.

Another Artizara design I like is this lace dress. The sleeves are what sold me completely…It’s costs $90.

Last but surely not least is this Rayon dress from Shukronline. If you want to go for something simpler but nice then I recommend this dress. I think you can make it fancier by adding a hijab that nice embroidery, beads or a fancier material. The dress costs $70.

What are you planning to wear for Eid?

  1. My husband is currently serving military duty in Afghanistan and got me a very lovely cream colored outfit with lots of elaborate metallic embroidery with a matching sheer scarf.

  2. Princess,

    I don’t subscribe to the belief that an abaya is the only correct form of dress for Muslim women. We’re a diverse set of people and have different ways of dressing. As long as a sister is covered properly than what is the problem here?

    Also, just because a sister wants to dress nice for Eid doesn’t mean that she is not focused on her Islamic values. As a matter of fact, several sisters asked me to post some examples of things that could be worn for Eid.

  3. Oh Oh I think I wrote this wrong 😦

    What I meant to say was we usually wear Abaya’s for Eid but our’s are fairly fasionable, decorated with stones and gems. I guess that because we are not in a Islamic country we use this code of dressing.

    Maaf if it came arcoss as wrong, it was not my intention. Once Again I do ask for sincere Maaf.

  4. i am sorry..you are promoting dress for muslim women. somehow i feel there’s something wrong when looking at the first two picture.the girl who are wearing that west african style from african apparel, we can see a portion of her neck down (chest?).
    is she a muslim?if not, i don’t really mind tho.i am sorry.please correct me if i am wrong.

  5. Rohadatul, the clothing site is not a Muslim clothing site. More than likely the model is not Muslim. I don’t see what’s wrong with this dress for Muslim women. Clearly, we can put on a hijab and the neck is covered or we can put on an undershirt.

    Please keep it mind that there are outfits I post which I am counting on you (the blog reader) to adjust it so that it is wearable for Muslim women. I don’t think that I have say (every single time) that you need under shirt or a hijab over the neckline.
