Niqab-wearing Saudi girl ditches ‘My Daily Style’ blog after lack of interest
RIYADH: Just three weeks after launching a blog in which she uploaded a photo of her day’s outdoor attire each morning, Saudi fashion fan Fatima Al Blawi announced this morning that she will be shutting down the website.
Al Blawi, 21, who wears a black abaya and niqab to work as an intern at Grazia magazine’s Riyadh offices, claimed that despite a flurry of initial interest in her daily style blog at burqalicious.blogspot.com, traffic had since “hit the skids”.
“It’s a shame as I really wanted my blog to help open doors in the fashion world, get me access to shows and perhaps even some freebies along the way,” said Al Blawi. “But yeah, maybe the pictures were all starting to look a bit similar.”
