SUITCASE STYLINGS: for Majda, Hawaii

My take on the "blue Hawaiian"---- A blue Hawaiian doesn't always have to be haraam----of course the alcoholic cocktail IS, but not this blue wonder. Surf's up Majda in this turquoise and coconut-brown floaty frock from CHIFFON PEACOCK ABAYA (AQUA) for $59.49. I know you [M of the Island] requested coloured niqab and abaya sets and it is hard to find stores that sell specific matched sets that aren't just navy, brown, light blue, grey, olive, and in my luckiest case, aubergine, so the key is finding a good match. This brown niqab from http://caravanxpress.com/Qstore/Qstore.cgi?CMD=011&PROD=1100172788 for $17.50 USD makes a cute addition along with this coconute-skin shadeded shayla http://yhst-17428391916310.stores.yahoo.net/ob5335.html. I JUST LOVE IT with the turquoise sunglasses. Hope you do too. For the rest of you, I'll leave you with my inspiration for Majda's concoction: my favourite Vogue shoot in Hawaii (um, unlike Canadian model Daria Werbowy, please leave your bathing suits and short skirts and shorts and tops and things under your abayas):

Omg!!!

It's super pretty! I love pretty much everything about this look. And the photoshoot is a nice touch. ;)

It's so hard to find colored abayaat that aren't tacky looking and even harder to find niqabs that would go well with them.

Jazakillah Khair! :D
