Abaya Do: do layer three quarter sleeve boxy coats for a professional look

An abaya is an overgarment but that doesn't mean you can't play with it as a base for your self-expression. An abaya with frilled sleeves like this one from http://www.islamicboutique.com/proddetail.asp?prod=abaya-1163&PARTNER=nor for $69.90 USD, is just like a blouse under a suit jacket when you pair a quarter-sleeve box jacket over top. Beige scrunch hijab from http://www.funaccessories.com.au/www/298/1001286/displayproduct/beige-scrunch-scarf--1028505_scarves--1001326_.html for $5.00 USD.

I really like the beige scrunch hijab. It doesn't look like you'd have the usual fidgeting with it in company meetings that I was often prone to. And you truly can't beat that price tag! I love you dear.

Lisa: Yay. I am glad. I have a brown scrunch hijab (my second hijab ever) and I find it very light and comfy and easy to wrap. Yah. Who can beat five bucks?:D I love you too!

Muslimahonadiet: It is very cute. I want it in brown, to wear with a brown niqab.
