I have to admit that I’ve never been a big fan of long dresses or jubahs. You can see from my PD Daily that I never really have those featured simply because I don’t wear them on a daily basis. I like my usual go-to pants. But like or not, jubahs are a necessity in every Muslim woman’s wardrobe. So many instances Dean and I have to go to a surprise tahlil, or attend a funeral and I kick myself in the head when I find that my one black jubah is either in the wash or I left it at Mom’s.

Now that I’m pregnant and pants are no longer my friends, a flowy non-judgy non-pretentious non-critical jubah seems sooooo awesome.

Don’t know about you, but I’m very excited for the Calaqisya <3 FV collaboration that is launching tomorrow. Three jubah designs, lots of colours each, beadings and sequins for just some subtle glam, and all under RM 200.┬áThe best part is that they wanted to celebrate women empowerment so they named the designs after women warriors in Islam to honour them.

Have a look tomorrow!

In the meantime, you can read the BTS and interview with the Calaqisya ladies here. Quite interesting to see the dynamics of 3 powerful sisters. And have an inside look on our photoshoot trip to a desert far far away *ahem*.
