BY ERICA PEARSON / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Sana Rashid wears clothing that covers her body and hair in keeping with her Muslim faith. Still, the Queens mom is a total fashionista, blogging about her life and style choices on the site Modhijabi.com.
“I didn’t want the blog to be just fashion, because I want it to be relatable to more people, and I want people to see that, here I am, I’m a Muslim woman, I lead a very normal life,” said Rashid, who started wearing a head-covering scarf, or hijab, in ninth grade.
“People just have a negative connotation about Muslim women, that we’re forced to wear hijab — that everything is forced,” she said. “I do whatever I want.”
Pakistani-born and American-raised Rashid, 30, is one of a growing number of modest yet stylish Muslim fashion followers — dubbed hijabistas — joining the blogosphere and gathering dedicated followers.
