For the last couple of days, I have been really, really obsessing over abayas. In particular, abayas from the Islamic Boutique. [Muslim ladies, has anyone ordered from them before? A good experience?]
Here is an example:
The abayas are mostly machine wash, custom sewn to your height and basic measurements, and you can pick a matching scarf! Their colors are a good selection of basics (yay for me, brown and tan are included!). Three of these plainer ones, plus two dressy and I would be set for work wear. Toss in some colorful head scarves and comfy but nice shoes, my wardrobe is set.
They also carry under skirts, pants and slips in matching colors.
Alana was having a yen for a uniform. Maybe these would work? Perfect lengths on sleeves and skirt for monastery wear and…no belts! Depending on your head covering, you wouldn’t look like a nun or a Muslim. 🙂
Just a thought.
