Oh the jilbabs...

As salaam alaikum family,

It's been a long time but insha'allah I promise to do better as far as posting...anyone miss me?

If you've read my Islamic clothing site review you know that I am not a great fan of the exorbitant amount of money 2 Hijab charges for shipping and handling. (Just looking at the shipping cost makes me angry)! However, every once in a while they tempt me with a nice-looking jilbab. So far I've only ordered one item from them (when temptation got the better of me.) Now it seems like temptation is back in full effect. Though I don't wear abayas or jilbabs all the time (and it seems less and less these days) when I do purchase an abaya or jilbab it has to be something that's unique;something with character.

I really like this denim jilbab:


I also like this one:

Can you see me now

And this one that I've been salivating over for more than a year now:

In the words of Victoria Beckham, this jilbab is "major". (Don't ask, lol). I'm still thinking about ordering two of the three and just eating the shipping cost for now. I'm undecided though...

Hi, I found a very nice range online at this website seems they have taken the time to actually come up with some designs for busy Muslim mums on the go, with pockets etc.. so it works for me. Some need a loose abaya over them, as they are designed to be an inner garment. Oh and you can leave comments on the clothing etc.. so they can improve or change the designs (they design the clothes them selves, husband and wife team.. so cute)

Salaam! I read a few comments you've made about fashion and it seems that no one recognizes the fact that the Sisters in the Nation of Islam have definitely captured the "fashionably modest" look!! The Honorable Elijah Muhammad styled and dressed us well!!Praise be to Allah!! Check out and see how one, out of hundreds of our seamstresses, Sister Jennifer Muhammad has worked to make sure that the world sees all righteous women in a proper light! Read her bio and order your garment today! Peace

OK, Christian who came upon this blog while drooling over Islamic clothing here! I'd like to warn you ladies that if you're not careful, with the right hijab and the abaya you're going to end up looking more gorgeous than the rest of us in our big butts stuck in horrendous jeans and awful t-shirts lol! Very lovely clothing. Modest, but really lovely.
