Here for the Harem Pants

Harem pants, also called pantaloons, are a staple in the raqs world. Women and men wear these comfortable lose pants to perform, teach and just look absolutely fashionable. Knowing that everyone uses these pants differently we’re introducing a more stylish print that can be mixed and matched with your raqs wardrobe and fun dance clothes.

Check out these great styles of pantaloons for your trouseau and trips to conferences and gala shows. We’re giving you a $100 gift certificate if you can mix and match these in a way that is super traditional and another that is modern and fun! We can’t wait to see what you come up with in your photos. Share them with us on Facebook or tag us on Instagram with #MBDMixMatch in the description.

Happy Dancing, Mixing and Matching!

Living for the Long Layers

These new ruffle skirts are what we are living for today! The layers are a multitude of ruffles in various fabrics all monochrome to give it a really unique look. You can mix and match these skirts with halter tops, strappy tops, cholis and bellydance bras from bedluhs. The possibilities are endless and we are here for this new look in our raqs wardrobe.

The elastic waist makes it a comfortable and adjustable fit for varying body types. No more fear thinking it’s not going to a great fit for you as the sizes range from petite and up to 3XL. We can also custom make upon request, give us a little extra time to make the skirt to your liking. Contact us directly for those orders. And tell us what you think! Like it, love it, share it with your dance friends and studio artists. We’re ready to spice up your dance shows and performance pieces with perfect and cool raqs couture!

Care for a Caftan?

Spelled Caftan or Kaftan, these long dress style garments are worn in a variety of ways. Short-sleeved caftans are awesome in summer and make great fashion companions for annual dance conferences that are so hot in this heat. We’ve upped our caftan game with some new colours that will delight every dancer! They are wider and fit better as well as having an amazing print that helps you stand out and look your best.

Caftans are also used as costumes and everyday wear or cover-ups for costumes. If you haven’t noticed already, lots of dancers world wide sport spectacular caftans over their costumes to conceal their gorgeous masterpiece until show time or class. It’s not culturally inappropriate to wear a caftan out and about if you choose. Caftans are worn in many cultures and these we have are inspired by our own cultures from our diverse team of first generation and cultured people. We’re proud and happy to share our culture with you through couture.

Enjoy these great caftans modeled by well-known and local dancers in our international community. Accessorise it with a belt and matching jewelry for a really glam experience.

Dance Parents & Dance Moms

We want to thank all mothers that attend shows and are super supportive of the dancers in their lives. Mothers go beyond being those who we grew up with, they are the ones that were there for us when our own parents were not able to be there. You know those parents that took other kids (including you) to dance class and then took you out for some cool meal afterwards. There are tons of people who are being nice and kind, parent-like to young ones worldwide. We see you and we thank you!

Today through the morning you can save 15% on your orders. We suggest getting your dance mom something really awesome. Jewelry, costume pieces or a full set that you know she’d love! Use Mother2018 at missbellydance.com and show your dance parents that you care!

Send in your photos of you and your dance parents for a chance to win a $50 MissBellydance.com credit on your next order! Post the pictures in the comments section of this post, on our facebook page or tag us on Instagram @missbellydance

Sheer Sets for Summer

Hot summer days are ahead and we’re ready with its of cool sheers and lovely lace. We’re grateful that our luxurious sets are so popular with our fans and followers. Which one did you choose for your Raqs wardrobe?

A suggestion we have is to get one colour of each in your favourite lace sets. These items set you apart from others in competitions. They are memorable and can be mixed, matched and layered to your liking. To conceal your outfit at festivals where there are few dressing rooms and backstage is just cramped, consider a chebba style jacket to cover up without getting too hot. This is certainly not the weather for velvet.

Jewelry on Tour

It’s quite a historic weekend for those that have been following the history of the Salimpour family. On a recent chat with one of the members touring with Bal Anat, we learned about their practice time and how much work goes into excelling at the format.

Another thing we noticed was our dance sisters wearing MissBellydance.com jewelry! These pieces shown are from a collection we have been carrying for over 10years. They are our signature look with nods to all the cultures of the backgrounds of our staff. We are a global group bringing people together through dance. It’s an honour to see many dancers wearing these to showcase the various cultures that make up Raqs Sharqi!

Thank you!! We are counting down the days to the tour’s stop in Atlanta! More on that next month!

Flash Sale Anyone?

What is a flash sale? Flash sales provide the perfect opportunity for dancers to grab as much stuff as they possibly can for an ultra low price. We believe in providing these types of purchasing options for our followers as an added relief from the stress of clothes shopping. Dancers today are always on the go and they need a break. Flash sales allow the dancer to grab a ton of items they may have wanted to try out for a very long time.
