FAVORITE FIND: Michael Stars Ikat Crochet Back Hi Low Dress

I'm moving all the things I haven't worn in the past two months to the front of my closet. My closet is usually a disaster space as it is, so it needed a good cleanout anyway. One of the items I'm looking forward to unearthing is this Michael Stars Ikat Print embroidered back dress. I wear it with a white long-sleeve top, white skinny jeans, and silver sandals for easy summer style.

FAVORITE FIND: Adrianna Papell Scalloped Lace Gown

A few years ago, I had a reader ask me to post gowns for Eid-worthy celebration events. A post will be coming with gowns modest, Muslim women can wear to Eid prayer soon enough; in the meantime, feast your eyes on this beauty.

[Under $50] 20-hour 25% off sale at Piperlime!

I got an email earlier tonight about a 20-hour 25% off sale at Piperlime! Considering that I was wavering between ordering a Gap denim jacket (I didn't want to pay for shipping!), getting this email from Piperlime was a knick-of-time marketing ploy, as there is a great pleated skirt I think the jacket would work with. Ramadan is coming - time to bust out those iftar and taraweeh outfits!

I'll be posting continual updates over the next hour or two - check out my favorite finds!

Love this Elan Metallic Pullover! It would be great for a holiday party (Ramadan does require festive wear!)

It was these skirts that spurred my visit to Piperlime's site.

Also available in light blue, purple, and black - all for under $20!

Tinley Road Notch Neck dress - this would be a great look over black skinny pants!

Slouchy pants are effortlessly cool and casually chic. The nice thing about them is because they're not form fitting, you can wear them with a shorter top (as opposed to tunic length) that's equally drapey.

Looking for a top to pair with all those pants? Check this one out! Lace-hemmed and a boxy, loose feel - perfect to go along with your slouchy pants!

Michael Stars - be still my heart! Michael Stars has the best quality jersey out there! It's soft without getting pill-y, stretchy with some heft, and does not lose its stretch.

Another comfy-yet-breezy dress-to-top item from LA Made.

Love the detail of the lattice along the neckline and shoulders in this Sabine lattice-sleeve dress (can be worn as a tunic top!)

And in case you want it simply as a top, the Sabine Lace Boho top!

If you look through the blog, you'll see the many posts I did on this Hive and Honey maxi dress's predecessor, the Hive and Honey maxi chevron skirt. I LOVE that skirt (seen here when in Morocco!) and am sure that anyone would love this maxi dress. Throw on a chambray button down over it, tie it at the waist, and you're instantly bohemian chic.

Love this slouchy striped top. Reminds me of something Cameron Diaz or would wear while traveling.
