HFW May 2012: Day 5 - Special Occasions

Theme for Day 5 is special occasions! Just because we wear hijab does not mean that we can't dress up for special occasions. Here's my special occasion outfit, which I wore to the Smiles Better dinner, hosted by Islamic Help and Pearl Daisy (more on the event in another post). I kept the accessories minimal and simple, as the abaya is pretty blinged out with the pink diamantes and ball chain detailing. I love this abaya as it's one of those really loose free size abaya's with a belt on the inside. It's made from satin and is loose and flowy, which just makes it even more suitable for the occasion =)

Abaya and matching scarf: Gift from a friend
Shoes: Satin Ballet Flats (Debenhams)
Bag: Accessorise (tucked away in the bottom left corner)
Rings: H&M
