I thought about this, because whilst hijabi's are covered up we can still get away with most everyday trends...but what if the real you isn't so much a fashionista? You're more fancy dress? lol I'm an eclectic little fook, always have been and if I wasn't a hijabi i'd fit into the rockabilly-on-rainbow-crack category.
I'm in love with forties fashion but with a punky, burlesque modern twist! Aqua blue betty page hair, winged liner and morange lips topped off with a breastplate of swallows and cupcakes...that's me deep down (If that rang a bell, yes...you're thinking of raquel reed! she's my fashion dream...everything about her look drives me wild with unimaginable envy!)
I have no clue how hubby would react to me coming back from the hairdressers with a bright blue bonnet....We've discussed this before when I was adamant I was going to get the top half of my hair dyed baby pink and the rest peroxide blond for my last birthday...it didn't happen. Not because of hubbies objections though lol I think ended up spending the money on something else. Hubby actually said he'll still wuv me no matter what colour my hair is...although I notice the fear in his eyes when I mention tattoos and and the like haha
Do you ever feel like the real you doesn't match your hijab persona? Not in a mentally distressing kind of way...this ain't oppression i'm talking about. As we all know hijab is about preserving your beauty, dignity and not drawing attention to yourself so off course when I go out MINUS a forties face etc (tbh i wear jammies round the house and my hair scraped back..I just cannot be arsed) No one actually knows what i'm into or who I really am beneath my hijab which is why I'm curious to know who YOU really are beneath YOUR hijab :]
So we've established i'm a closet rockabilly wannabe who dreams of blue hair and sailor tats, what are you?
