Let's Blame LB*

Yeah, you got it right. It’s LB not FB.

LB or Lookbook is FB’s latest 'cousin' that connects people who is conscious about fashion. In other word, LB is a showcase for what you wear today (or how you wear it). If you look good, people can click the hype button and give you positive comment. What if you look bad or miserable? No worries, this is the good thing about LB, people won’t mock you for your choice of style. They will just politely ignore you and walk away.

It's all started when my lovely sista Dila came to Sydney for holiday last September. She brought her entire wardrobe with her. From cutie flower dress to barong t-shirt dress. From dreamy blue maxi to casual tops. She brought colourful hijabs, pashminas and lots of leggings. Soon I felt left behind. Well, I had lots of clothes in my wardrobe, some better than hers. But I was just not quite conscious about fashion. I don’t know how to wear them. I was amazed to see Dila’s style and repeatedly said: Oh, you can wear it like that? How could I not come up with that idea?

You can see Dila’s holiday pictures in Australia here, here and here.

Then she started join LB. From there I could see Zata, Dila’s bff. Zata is even more fashion conscious than Dila. She also has slimmer legs J. Dila and Zata opened me another beautiful world. Soon I realized it doesn’t matter what you have in your wardrobe but how you wear them.

The beautiful thing about LB is that we can see gorgeous people around the world wearing hijab with their own styles. We love Hana from London and Yuna from KL. We also love A.K.F from Crossing. They (and hundred other hijabi girls from around the world) have inspired us. We can still look gorgeous without baring our flesh. We can be stylish while covered.

I forgot that I was (then) thirty and decided to join LB, too.

see you in the happy side of the world,
