Hijabi Fashion Week May 2012 - Day 3

It's Day 3 of Hijabi Fashion Week, and there are still many new participants joining in! Woohoo! Don't worry if you miss a day or can't share your looks right away, because each Hijabi Fashion Week theme is open for a week. This means you get a few more days to submit your look, before the collection closes--but, make sure you do get them in, because once each day is closed, it's closed for the season!

While that's in the future, today we're asking you to to look into the past! Today's theme of "time travel" (or "then and now") is all about taking inspiration from a past style or an older item, and bringing it up-to-date for the present! As with all our categories, you can interpret this as you wish, as long as you keep it modest! What styles from the past have made an impression on you? What antiquated or vintage-inspired accessories are freshening up your current wardrobe? YOU decide how to mix and match to suit YOUR personality!

As you can tell, we love a lady in a leading role! So, for our look, we turned to the era of power suits and power styles, for inspiration. In this ensemble we're channeling the styles of the ground-breaking professional women of the 80's, and yes, this includes Princess Diana, whose style and elegance was was both graceful and down-to-earth! In our chic white ensemble, we're featuring a button-down bow tunic from Modern Mary in a sharp cobalt blue! The nude-khaki stilletos and diagonal stripes along the cuff add just the right touches to bring this classy look, up-to-date. The Modern Mary tunic is a gorgeous color, light-weight material, and sleeveless -- the perfect basic for summer work-wear!
