I agree with you on how adding embellishments, wearing lots of makeup, etc draws more attention. I think there has to be a line drawn between looking good for yourself and going extreme, aka looking good for others. I know it's been told a million times before that "hijab isn't just a peice of cloth, its a way of life" (ie acting modestly)which is true, but it doesn't hurt to wear somthing nice.
I think in this day and age, esp living in countries like the US and Europe, it's really not that hard to grab attention from others wearing hijab. I just think at the end of the day, if you wear hijab,you should realize it's still a big responsiblity in how you act and present yourself, so you just have to learn how to balance that fine line.
Hahah and just jokes sake I had to add this icon:
