Shiekha Moza of Qatar---and my take

I have always loved the way Sheikha Moza of Qatar wears her shayla---loose and earrings out---but the way she wears it, of course, is only as a shayla, not a hijab (though she usually gets chest coverage just not neck or hair). To make her style into suitable hijab, I just style my plain black shaylas from KSA as shown in this vid http://ilovehishmatheblog.blogspot.com/2009/05/how-to-wear-hijab-video-loose-qatari.html.LOL, do I pull off a good impression of the Sheikha?:D Abaya from http://www.sunnahstyle.com/product_info.php?pName=ruched-satin-sleeved-butterfly-abaya&cName=abayas-butterfly for $49.99 USD.

the dress is really long like when you walk what you do

hannah said...

i also like that her makeup is very neutral -- not super bright and way out there!!

Pixie said...

NoorsJourney: wa laaykom e salaam. Jazzakallah kheiran. I'm so glad:D

Pixie said...

Habbit: I just walk. I dunno. I prefer my abayas to cover my feet so I don't have to wear socks. I take a certain kind of step that I don't know how to describe. I have to do the same thing with pants that are too long so I've been doping it my whole life. I can wear things that are a full four inches too long for me without tripping:D It takes some time for the taller sisters out there, like my girl Boxie whose slowly mastering the art.

Pixie said...

Hannah: exactly. Pretty natural.

Nawal said...

I like her style, at least she still covers the main areas. She doesnt look like a "young" woman so I usually dont pick on the older women that have the right to relax the hijab a bit.

Ayan said...

I agree with Taya. The overall look is gorgeous, I love your choice of accessories!

Now I just need to work on the hijab style to stay on my head, and look effortless (like yours).

Amina said...

Oh, arent u a cuttie pie :-)

zahra said...

the way you're wearing the hijab is different to the one you showed in the youtube video. How do you wrap your hijab like that?

Pixie said...

Nawal: the Qu'ran says they remove the jilbab when they get older so you're right but says it is best not to. But I did want to note, she is wearing the khimar incorrectly. I think she looks so chic though, always. Like a real lady.

Pixie said...

Ayan: it's about six stick pins.

Pixie said...

Amina: lol, cuz I am short?:D Call me a glam amazon and I'll be the happiest short gal on the planet:D

Pixie said...

Zahra: it really is the same as the youtube clip. Walahi:D

Sakina Al-Amin said...

She looks good.

Jana said...

Thanks Pixie!

iMuslimah said...

Her face is so defined mashaAllah she'd look better with it on like you - we need to look up her email ad and send her a link to your tutorial :-)

Anyway on another note I was checking that abaya out on sunnah style some time back, but I got totally confused by sleeve measurements...hence didn't order it...is the join irritating? It looks lush...really wanna order mind now...

How do I know what sleeve size to order?

Confuzzled...

Shaika Mozza is adored here in Qatar, both for her style but mostly her works. She has helped her husband and family build this country into a thriving place for education, sports, and development and research. She is an amazing woman and while we love her style, we really appreciate what she has done for Qatar and she has passed on her strong work ethic and values to the next generation. The people at the top here work as hard as anyone in this country and are building a nation that we are proud of.

I am American, not Qatari-but I love this place and it is my home now. Inshaa Allah.
