Business Casual Superstar #458: Haute Hijab!

I’m very excited to share a little something about this great company. Haute Hijab is a Chicago-based fashion line for, you guessed it, Muslim women. Yay, hometown pride! Well, okay, Beantown is my hometown, but I’ve been a Chicago kid since 1996, so it counts, too. They offer scarves and wraps, as well as hijab-friendly […]

Business Casual Superstar #416: Modern Muslimah: Poetry and Maxi Skirts

Another Modern Muslimah outfit! My Ramadan schedule is kind of crazy, so sometimes it’s all I can do to get the small Daily Deals posts up. I’m sure regular readers have kind of noticed my absence. The rest of you could give a flying fig. But I’m going to do my best to get things […]

Business Casual Superstar #412: Modern Muslimah: Another Long, Pretty Skirt

I’m a sucker for long, pretty skirts. But at the same time, I’m quite particular about which ones I like. They have to be a certain fabric, a certain cut, and a certain print for me to just adore them. I also like maxi dresses, but all the ones that fit me are ugly, and […]

Business Casual Superstar #394: Inspired by Huma Abedin

Today’s post is inspired by the amazing Huma Abedin, the wife of embattled NY Congressman Anthony Weiner. Click here to head on over to Heave and read it. Since I like what I posted at Heave, I’ll copy the first part here as well. I have loved Anthony Weiner since he won his seat in […]

Business Casual Superstar #368: Modern Muslimah: Ruby Slippers and Rewards

As most of you know, all the prep material I had for my blog (which was a LOT – more than 1gig) was lost in my epic computer crash(es). AND I’M STILL BITCHING ABOUT IT YES WHAT OF IT. But I’m slowly starting to build my folders back up, which is why we’re back today […]

Business Casual Superstar #362: Modern Muslimah: Long Cardigans and Kimdonesia

Happy Monday, everyone! Here’s to the work week. Now that you’ve had your coffee as well as ample time to stare blankly at your computer screen like a zombie suffering from severe allergies, allow me to break up the monotony with another Modern Muslimah post. Today’s hadith is a tiny but powerful one. It comes […]

Business Casual Superstar #357: Modern Muslimah: A Striped Cardigan and Sadaqah [charity]

Today, I’ve got an outfit that’s for my Muslim sisters (and anybody, really, since “for my Muslims sisters” is just code for “pretty darn modest”). I think I’ll try to put up outfits like this once a week, but definitely once every two weeks. Someone alert FOX News about this glaring and totally terrifying instance […]

Business Casual Superstar #352: Modern Muslimah: Maxi Dresses and Animal Welfare

Today we’re doing another Modern Muslimah outfit. Maybe I should make Mondays (well, Tuesdays, since I forgot to even post yesterday) all about the Modern Muslimahs. Eh, I’ll see about that later. I hate pigeon-holing myself into setting certain days for certain outfits, anyway. But it felt like it was time to share another modest […]

Business Casual Superstar #343: Modern Muslimah: I Love Cranberries

You guys, I must admit, I pulled the old bait-and-switch to get you to read this post. I’m not proud of it, but desperate times call for desperate measures and in this economy, in this time of austerity and belt-tightening and adding sawdust to our meatloaves, every page view counts. You see, this post isn’t […]

Business Casual Superstar #288: Modern Muslimah: Still in Israel/Palestine

One last outfit for my friend @redheadedgirl on Twitter, whose roommate is headed to Palestine and Israel on a trip with the Nobel Women’s Committee. While Reidan is concerned about her roommate fitting in with a more conservative manner of dressing that is typical in most Muslim/Arab countries (note: the two are not synonymous; remember, […]
