Super Hijabi - Merve Kavakci

For those of you who are fans of my dear sister Merve Kavakci, today is another historical day. 13 years after walking in to the Turkish Parliament as an elected member and being prevented from taking her oath, and not serving her term, today Merve returned to the parliament to present her case and ask for her rights as well as the rights of those who elected her to serve her term. She continues to fight for the hijab ban in Turkey and to change the system, in to allowing women who wear the hijab to go to school, and work in all fields to serve their country.

Once a Super Hijabi, always a Super Hijabi.

On May 2, 1999, Merve Kavakci makes history as the first hijabi elected Member of Parliament. As she sits in her seat, she is shocked by the protests that take place against her, and is prevented from taking her oath and serving her term.

On October 19, 2012 after years of asking for her rights back, Merve Kavakci is finally presenting her case in the parliament.

At the entrance of the Turkish Parliament, she is this time greeted by Nimet Bas, The Commision Head of The Turkish Parliament who says "Welcome back to the Parliament as a Member of Parliament who was elected and chosen by the people, but was physically forced to leave. Welcome Back!"

Matching Clothes 101...

So you're having a hard time matching clothes? Sometimes dressing and undressing a gazillion times because you can't see color combinations? It can get frustrating. I understand. Because it's like no matter how long you just sit there and stare at your clothes, your colors always look completely random. So what do you typically do? Head over to your black clothes department because you're scared of putting on something too bold.

Well here are some basic tips to matching colors and giving you a cohesive structure to your outfit. So here's to Matching Clothes 101!!

Let me introduce to you your best friend for the next few weeks. Very colorful, bright and pretty much your answer to all your mismatching dilemmas: THE COLOR WHEEL!!

The color wheel is not only for painters and artists, its for your fashion wardrobe as well. Painters and artists have used the color wheel since forever to help them pick colors for their artwork and since styling is a work of art, the color wheel is perfect to help you match outfits.

Here's what the color wheel looks like:

So what this color wheel looks like it just a bunch of colors next to each other. Right?!!? Welllllll, not so much. Let me list a few tips on how to use this color wheel and in these tips, you'll find some of the best color combinations you could possibly ask for. They're the exact same color combination you see on the runway, on celebrities and models.

Combination TIP #1: Red, blue, yellow are Primary colors. Primary colors are pretty basic and are perfect to mix and match together.

Combination TIP #2: Those colors that are directly next to each other combine very well to give a very peaceful and harmonic display.

Combination TIP #3: Those colors that form a 90 degree angle with each other are also excellent combinations. These colors are perfect combinations for picnic outings, summer days on a boat or a day at the lake.

Combination TIP #4: Opposite from each other colors are your bold and bright combinations. Pick one color and then trace your way to its opposite on the other side of the wheel. They scream "WOW" when you slip them on so you have to be very careful where you wear these combinations. Some of the combinations have some sort of cultural reference to them such as Christmas red and green.

Combination TIP #5: This tip will help you pick accessory colors because there are 3 colors involved in this routine. Its the T-Shaped routine. Locate two colors that are opposites (using the method in TIP #4) and then locate the color directly in between those two colors. Two of those colors can be used for your outfit colors and the third for your accessories.

 A helpful hint to making this work for you: print off the color wheel on a full size sheet of paper and hang it next to your closet or on the inside of your closet so that you can have something to look off of when picking an outfit.

Hope this makes life easier on you ladies

Hijabi-friendly Basics at Target

We love Target.  It's our go-to store to find cute stuff at an affordable price.  On a recent trip to Target, we found this cute tunic-length turtleneck top that is PERFECT for layering especially under cardigans, chunky sweaters.  Check it out below.

The picture doesn't make it appear long, but in reality it is.  Also, we noticed that Mossimo sizing is a tad on the small side, so you may want to order one size up if you're planning on ordering it online.  It's available in 4 different colors as well.  At the bargain sale price of $12, what are you waiting for?!  Especially when wearing the Turkish style hijab, or any hijab for that matter, neck and chest coverage is essential. Our friends are ALWAYS asking us where to find the perfect turtleneck, so we like to keep them posted ;-).  Don't miss out on this deal, as I'm sure it'll be gone fast since the reviews on it are EXCELLENT!

Our second find is this cowl neck pullover, that would be perfect paired over some wide-legged jeans.  Doesn't it look comfy?  Perfect for a lazy day at home.  Also available in 4 colors, this piece is only $26.99!

Get to Target now bargain-istas!
