Asalamualaikum, brothers and sisters! I'm a proud 19-year-old Malaysian Muslima. If you happen to stumble upon this blog of mine, you can easily tell what my interests are. Islam, Middle Eastern and Desi culture, food, movies, Disney, and colourful stuff are among many things I blog about, as they delight me entirely. If you feel that we share similar interests, feel free to follow yaar. I love making new friends.

“Become friends with people who aren’t your age. Hang out with people whose first language isn’t the same as yours. Get to know someone who doesn’t come from your social class. This is how you see the world. This is how you grow.”

What’s a “half-mourning” dress? Mourning in the front, party in the back?
Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning.
Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.
That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:
I love both the informed fashion history and the hilariously off-the-wall halves of this post.
Don’t ever think that your brown skin is anything less than perfect, amazing, wonderful, benevolent, a blessing, marvelous, outstanding, heavenly, and majestic. Seriously.
