Egyptian Cotton Jalibiyias/ Galabiyias

I love Egyptian cotton jalibiyias. I wear them around the house and fancier ones for special occasions. I don't wear them out as jilbab very often because in my husband's culture they are expressly an inner garment but I think they work perfect as a jilbab. These are some of the ones I love. Right now this site Al Jilbab is having a small summer sale, and if you buy the less expensive ones, you can get four for $100 +shipping. I miss Oman where I could buy four for $30.00 :D The shipping is what is expensive with this site, not the garments.
Above is how I tend to wear my cotton jalibiyias when I wear them as hijab (but with more chest coverage from the hijab). And when I wear it at home I tend to pair it with more jewelry like crazy earrings, fun party make up, and my hair styled nicely.

Aisha: NO, but I wear pretty chandelier earrings and make up I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing around men:D

Assalamu alaikom,
Isn't that the lead singer from the 80s band Dead or Alive? Ugh, I shouldn't have said that. But dang, that's a LOT of makeup. heh

Those abayas are cheap around here but they are just a little too "festive", I guess is the word, for me to wear out. Plus I know a lot of people look at them as house dresses, not something to wear out. I had a few but they shrunk in the wash. Oops.

eyes serene: wa alaykom e salaam ramatullah wa barakto. LOL, k, I don't have too many pics of Arabic make up but I can replace these with a better one?:D These pics had make up and earrings though, and that's what I generally wear with my jalibiyias. And headbands and crystal berettes.:D

I know these posts are a couple of years old, but just in case you happen to see this, have you had any problems with gelabiya from Al Jilbab shrinking?

Thanks.
