Aztec Top

Cardigan: Forever 21 // Jeans: H&M // Boots: H&M // Watch: Michael Kors


  1. Is this cardigan a recent purchase....as in, would I still be able to find it now? Te whole outfit looks awesome:)

  2. I love your necklace. Where did you get it from?

  3. Clothing which follows your body shape cancels your hijab and is not acceptable to Allah.

  4. Hi Hani, love ALL your styles, good work and keep it up and going !!!

  5. I love wearing black

  6. Salaam Hanyeh, you look lovely. But please avoid referring to your sweater as "Aztec print." The Aztecs are a nation of people- not a design of clothing mass marketed to us. My family is from various parts of Africa. It is so frustrating seeing seemingly "Afrocentric" clothing items (which are almost always designed by Americans and manufactured in East Asia) being labeled as "Zulu print" or "Swahili style." I feel like my culture and identity are belittled and reduced to a Western caricature. Cultures are not costumes which can be mass produced and worn. I know that you did not mean offense by the title of your post and you certainly didn't come up with the name of the sweater, but I think as Muslim women we should be even more sensitive to issues of appropriation. You can check out this tumblr to get a sense of the complexities of labeling clothing as belonging to a specific race or culture. http://mycultureisnotatrend.tumblr.com/post/9911021969/submission-so-about-a-month-ago-i-saw-this-t
    I think your outfits are wonderful- I only suggest rethinking the title of this post!

  7. Salam Aleyikum!
