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. The 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*.
