Ted Baker Fall/Winter17 Collection Styling

Hi everyone!

 

I know it’s been ages since I jumped on here, sorry! The summer holidays have were so long and now that the kids are back in school I wanted to get back on it.

I recently got contacted by Ted Baker to style some outfits for their Autumn/Winter collection which I was really excited about. Mainly because I’ve always loved this brand but also knew that it would be a little challenging to put an outfit together that was modest fashion ‘friendly’ or hijab  fashion ‘friendly’ with their collection.

For those of you that don’t know Ted Baker is a British luxury fashion brand for men and women with some gorgeous dresses and accessories amongst many other things and some really smart/casual menswear. The kind of outfits you’d wear to a British summer wedding or holiday season get togethers by a log fire. :)

So amidst all the cocktail dresses and knee length skirts I came acroos a floral jumpsiut with a design that was perfect in disguising any defined body curves (not too slim fitting) yet looked  feminine and structured at the same time.

There was one major problem though – It was short sleeved, meaning I had to cover up those arms! So I picked a cardigian that was fully knitted along the sleeves and appliqued all over at the front panels This meant that the floral design at the front was not entirely covered up and peeped through the open pattern.

I wore it together with some suede Karen Millen stapped sandals and a plain sugar pink colured silk headscaf to complete the look.

Sile Bezi

Today was the third day of Eid here in Bahrain, and after a very busy first two days it was a little more relaxed.

So I chose to wear a cream coloured dress which I bought from Sile, a small seaside town on the outskirsts of Istanbul in Turkey. This is where my mother’s from and it’s very well known for it’s Sile Bezi or Sile Cloth. A natural fabric that’s woven like a type of muslin and is treated in the local sea with the salty water and then air dried.

It’s beautifully light and is used for a whole variety of things from dresses to blouses to table cloths and napkins. Traditionally it’s hand embroidered in colourful floral and symetric designs.

My dress has a thick lace edging at the hem and neckline, plain, not so traditional maybe but none the less extremely comfortable. I added an old rope typr designed belt for a more boho look.
