Hijabi Fashion Week- Day 1: Work Wear! UUU style.

It's time.
Hijabi Fashion Week starts off with a whoop-pop-she-bang-sha (it's okay, I cannot fathom what this means myself, however, no other words in the English language could be implemented. It's alright, though! I will lobby for hoop-pop-she-bang-sha to appear in Oxford or Webster...or at least dictionary.com...) with...work wear!

It would be silly to ask me what I want to be when I 'grow up'. Because I want do so much, iA! I've been immersing myself with people in the past few months that have enlightened me in the way I see the world and what I can contribute to it, as well as taking advantage of the 18377450965696 opportunities out there! These phantasmagorical events/encounters are so completely refreshing and are broadening my preconceived notions of a 'career'. Anywhooooo, journalism will be a huge chunky chunk in my future endeavors iA. But you're not interested in all that, are ya? :P
Here's what I'll wear during said journalistic escapades:
who what wear?
  • orange polka-dotted button-up: $1.43 via F as in Frank's (vintage store on Main Street, in Vancouver) RAD-iculous $10-fill-a-bag sale!
  • fuzzy and wonderfully-textured cropped orange wool blazer:  $1.43 via F as in Frank's (vintage store on Main Street, in Vancouver) RAD-iculous $10-fill-a-bag sale too!
  • tacky/lovely copper-gold-metallic bag: $5, Coco's Bags
  • brown loaf-y pumps: $3, Joe Fresh
  • khaki pants:  Joe Fresh
 Note pen + pad. SO journalist-y.
 outfit commentary: 
I'm sure journalists have to dress all professionally. But why hand over creative sartorial juices by wearing boring gray, black, cream and other such neutral-colored pant-suits and dress shirts, eh?
Hence, the implementation of the orange blazer + orange dress shirt. The khaki pants + loafer-y pumps also make me look sophisticated, huh? And well, duh: accessorizing is synonymous with anything you find here on Under Urooba's Umbrella!

Elegant and full of happiness! I love orange and red too.
Colourful hijabs are amazing. By the way, what do you think about the hijab´s use in Jordan? Do you agree with Queen Rania when she says that the veil must be optional?
Have a wonderful week, my darling journalist!

ORANGE you glad you have totally awesome style?!

HAHhahahahhaha.

Okay. Obviously not funny. I apologize. But I DO think you look totally awesome. And I agree that colour > black and grey and blah blah blah. In fact, this weekend, I was at this Model UN conference and you had to dress in "Business Casual." My business casual was not like the others... And that's a-okay! Yay!

Anyways, I'm glad your living life at the moment! :) Being young is so exciting!
