Hello Angels! How are you all doing?
It’s a rainy, gloomy day out today…perfect for getting cozy under my blanket and writing a post. I’ve been on a roll lately with my posts, right? I’ve been very inspired and motivated lately!
So, today’s post will be my OOTD (outfit of the day) from yesterday. Yesterday, I went to the mosque for an event- the Seerat-un-Nabi Jalsa. This event is held yearly to appreciate the beautiful character and life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him). If you’d like to learn more about Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him), click here.
My outfit was quite fancy for a mosque event… I think a quick lesson about my culture will help you guys understand why it was so fancy. I got married (to my best friend) about a year ago, and in my Pakistani culture, a newly wed bride dresses up for everything (even at home). She wears fancy traditional outfits, tons of jewelry, and heaps of makeup. I usually don’t dress up at home, but for any event outside I try my best to look “bridal.” My interpretation of this custom is that it’s celebration of your wedding/love and is a display of your happiness. I really enjoy and appreciate this custom. O.K., mini culture lesson done. Let’s get on to the outfit, shall we?
It’s an eggplant colored chiffon kameez, with a white/silvery banarsi pajama. It’s beautifully embroidered with gold and silver beading. The outfit and jewelry (bangles/earrings) are from Pakistan, the floral bangles are from London, and the heels are the brand Fioni Night.
