Collaboration with Westfield Liverpool

Hi all,
Now that Eid is around the corner, I have been having a think of what I want to wear to celebrate this special occasion. Looking back at all my past outfits, I have come to realise that every Eid, the girly side of me comes out!

(By girly I mean a dress that I can twirl in; something that makes me feel like I’m a princess dancing in a ballroom… a girl can dream)

With that in mind, I decided to find the perfect maxi dress, that I can wear not only for a special occasion like Eid, but also wear on a casual basis. Thankfully Westfield Liverpool has me covered this Eid, with a wide range of stores, I’m bound to find that gorgeous piece that I need in my life!

Here are my Top 3 Tips to Eid Dressing:

1. Have an idea of what you want to wear.

For example “I want a nice maxi dress that’s not too figure hugging”. So now your mind is set on a maxi dress, I guarantee that all you’ll be seeing are maxi dresses! It’s also important to ask “can I wear this outfit again?
”.

2. Go into a store you have never been in.  

You’ll be quite surprised by what you find - when I was looking for what to wear, I walked into Universal Store and there was one dress I couldn’t take my eyes off! I went to a few stores but my heart was already set on that dress, so I had to get it.


3. You need to be comfortable - 

Is your outfit going to survive all day?

I’m not sure what everyone does on Eid but I know that I visit about 7 or 8 houses in one day after our Eid Prayer, so I always look for material that is comfy to wear (which means that after the 6th plate of food I still have space to move around)!





Instead of buckling it, try tying a knot. So if you see somewhere wearing the same thing, at least you know yours has better detailing (it's all about the details)



 You know its going to be cold in the early mornings on Eid, so experiment with different materials, i chose to wear a beanie that had some fine details, if i do say so myself!

  1. Wear something thats layerable and works with and without all the layers, as weather can be temperamental and taking off a jacket or putting one on will still look amazing xx

  9. To complete my eid look i like to wear heels, it dresses up even casual outfits. It saves me from tripping over my long maxi dress or my abaya dragging on the floor.

  10. My styling tip is to keep an extra outfit in the car so when you get to the 4th house you don't have the food stains from house 1,2 and 3! Fadhila

  12. My tip is always choose comfort. If your going to be in an outfit the entire day it needs to be comfy from head to toe. For me comfy means flowy, easy to walk in, not being reatricted especailly around the waist. Those eid sweets are hard to resist. Most importantly comfy shoes either stylish flat or boots or straps with a chunky heal. Who can walk around in a thin heal all day especially with kids. Not me thats for sure.

  13. Great styling tips!! Another styling tip I found useful was to wear something that could easily transfer from day wear to night wear, and can be easily dressed up or down (with accessories for example). This will help you make the most out of your outfit and save you from having to change.

  14. My tip is to wear adjustable sleeves so that it is easy to roll up when it's time to make ablution ��

    But really, for mums like me who needs to be comfortable (which is not always stylish), wear a statement jacket on top so that you can still look stylish but can easily be removed when needed
