As I said in my first post, I am a new hijabi. This means that my closet is filled with Hijabi unappropriate clothes. I guess the reality sunk in the day I gave most of my tops, dresses and mini skirts to my sister who was more than happy for the gift. That day, I felt happy but I was also scared. I wasn't just giving away my clothes, I was giving away the old me. I was giving away the life that I knew best. I was giving away the clothes I used to love. Those clothes were my personality, they were how I wanted the world to see me: feminine & sexy( at least what I thought). I felt lost. For the first time in my life, I did not know what to wear. When I was getting dressed, either my pants were too tight, my top a bit short or showing too much cleavage. There was a sense of urgency for me to go and buy clothing that was more appropriate to my new lifestyle.
I then went to the mall over and over again looking for modest clothing just to find out that mainstreet stores did not cater to me. I went to my favorite stores to realize that nothing was there for me. When I got lucky, I was able to find one top here and there but nothing fancy. The tops did not have any style, cut or color. They were big black old woman clothes! The first top I was able to buy was actually from the maternity section of Old Navy and the brand was 'maternity' and mind you I'm not even pregnant. Go figure, that was the only section that had modest clothing! Anyhow, I've been having issues ever since to find modest clothing. If any hijabis out there have any tips on where to shop for long tops or skirts, please let me know. I was able to find some at Loehman' s and Forever21. I also bought some things online today at Newport News. They have a great sale going on, skirts& tops that hijabis could wear! Check it out.
These are the ones I got:
Only $9.99(used to be $42) - Beat that!!! They have different colors
Only $29.99 (used to be $64) I've been looking for a long skirt for work for like forever.
$8.99 ( used to be $29)- For the record, I've never owned purple shoes, or anything purple for that matter. Just so happened that I bought this black & purple dress yesterday and I thought I'd get these shoes to see how they will look with the dress. $8.99 is a small investment to try purple shoes. I beg to differ lol.
The ones I would recommend:
$34.99 (used to be $64) I wanted to get this skirt so bad but it's only available in Petite i-e 36 inches. I was a bit scared that It'd be one or 2 inches shorter than ankle-lenght.
Love the color!!!! for $24.999
$21.99 for the skirt.
$10.99 for this blouse. Wooww!!
