INSPIRATION BOARD: A very art deco affair abaya for Estelle
This inspiration board is actually for a non-Muslim who loves dragons and needs to wear an abaya in order to visit my more than-slightly-conservative village. When I saw the very large brass dragon pendant at Zara I knew immediately it was for her. The abaya was a bit more difficult but this Shemailat Collection abaya available from www.modahouse.com was pretty true to her personal style. Add some very art deco-ey accessories, like a vintage inspired beaded fan clutch, deco arrings, and velvet loafers, and an oversize cuff and it looks like something I'd even wear (sans the dragon necklace though, and nix the velvet loafers because I HATE loafers---sorry trend).
