Currently, i have this craze- to wear pretty cloth. I don't know why or for what. I just want to wear them.
However, i have this doubt- law. I want to put them on but i'm afraid if the law of islam forbids me to do so since there are certain boundary in clothing for muslimah.
So, I searched as many as possible, hadiths, Quran versuses and etc on the guidelines of dressing up as a muslimah.
In me, there are two elements fighting to empower my personality. I have this desire of wearing tudung labuh and looks beautiful at the same time. I also have this craze of wearing pretty cloth. So, i don't really know which one to be put on me.
For now, i have not found any Quran versuses or hadiths that say muslimah must wear tudung labuh to cover themselves.
In Surah Al-Ahzab (59) mentioned that:
"“Wahai Nabi, suruhlah isteri-isterimu dan anak-anak perempuanmu serta perempuan yang beriman, supaya melabuhkan pakaiannya bagi menutup seluruh tubuhnya (ketika mereka keluar), cara yang demikian lebih sesuai untuk mereka dikenal (sebagai perempuan yang baik-baik) maka dengan itu mereka tidak diganggu dan ingatlah Allah adalah Maha Pengampun, lagi Maha Mengasihani.”(Surah al-Ahzab, ayat 59).
So, it is clear. No doubt. In another extract of Quran Surah An-nur says:
“Dan hendaklah mereka (wanita) menutup belahan leher bajunya dengan tudung kepala mereka.”

I even have this idea of wearing shawl with informal attire (blouse and trousers) and tudung labuh with formal attire such as baju kurung. However, is it correct for me to do so?P/S: share your knowledge or opinion with me. Tell me if my desires are wrong.
