Miss M’s Dina Tokio

Hello my lovelies! If you’ve been scrolling through past blogposts or even through Modestrove’s Instagram account, you might have noticed a certain name popping up every now and again: Dina Tokio, Modestrove’s style icon of the month. As I was scrolling through her Instagram feed (I’m especially digging the bold colours of her recent autumnal outfits!), I realized just how much the UK modest fashion movement had been inspired by Dina Tokio – how I, myself, had been inspired by her. I had felt supported in my lifestyle choices through... Read More

Miss M Hijab-friendly Halloween Costumes

Hello my lovelies! We can say a lot of things about October, but really, there’s only one thing on everone’s minds: Halloween! As I walk by coffee shops and store windows I can already see the Halloween cheer – pumpkins, skeletons, paper cut-outs of bats and cobwebs. I catch people talking about plans for their Halloween costumes and I, myself, have begun scrolling through Pinterest to see what I would like to be on the 31st of October. I have realized, however, that ideas for hijab-friendly Halloween costumes are hard... Read More

Miss M Styling Theselina

Hello my lovelies, I’ve received a few questions from readers about styling our Modestrove products. Some of our Modest babes were just beginning to play around with accessories, finding out how to mix and match colours, while our more Seasoned Modest Women were interested in how I would personally style a particular Modestrove item. After sitting on this idea for a while, I’ve decided to show you how I would dress up one of my favourite items – The Selina handbag.   The first style is a more casual, daytime... Read More

Our Top 6 Hijab Organisation Tips

Have you ever found yourself in this situation? You have a special event coming up — perhaps a big day at work, or a party you’ve been looking forward to for months? You’ve put together the perfect outfit and have just the hijab in mind to complete your look, but, as you’re getting ready, you realise with horror that it’s nowhere to be found!

Miss M Coffee Recommendations

Hello my lovelies! October kicked off with International Coffee Day and I couldn’t be happier to find an excuse to drink lots of coffee. Unfortunately, that day fell on the 1st of October, a Sunday, and this was to be spent relaxing… which is difficult in a hyper-caffeinated state. Still, I wanted to celebrate the wonderfulness of coffee somehow and I decided that instead of drinking five coffees in one day, I would drink one coffee each day for the next work week. However, as I was sitting down to... Read More

Miss M Roald Dahl

Hello my lovelies, September is here! Time to break out your woolly cardigans and curl up with your favourite book while drinking a cuppa. When I was in Edinburgh for Eid, I happened to find some of my old childhood books and one of my favourites jumped out at me: Matilda. However, I was too busy entertaining friends that I didn’t really have the time to read it and so I brought it back to London with me. And here I am – back in my flat, all comfy and... Read More

Hijabs ‘R’ Us

Hello my lovelies, Have you ever had difficulties finding the right hijab in the UK? Have you ever had the experience of searching and searching and finally resorted to asking friends from overseas to bring back a sample when they visit you, or paying an exorbitant amount of money on postage fees because you bought a piece from across the world? Well, that was a normal problem for me growing up… there just wasn’t much options in Edinburgh – none that really catered to my style, anyway. Speaking with my... Read More
