Hijabi Recessionista Find of the Week: Moroccan Caftan

Sometimes it can be hard to find colorful abayas and overgarments, so when I found this caftan I knew I had to get it. My caftan arrived a few days after I ordered it from eShakti so the delivery was pretty fast. There's nothing worst than ordering something and having to wait forever to get it. It arrived in in a plastic bag looking like this.

Inside there was also a little black pouch with measuring tape. Insha' Allah I will order from them again and can use it to customize my order.

Here is what it looked like on.

It was $59 plus shipping and handling. I know this caftan is a bit pricey for the items we usually pick by I totally love it! A little bit about the caftan: The colors weren't exactly what I expected. I thought it was going to be more greenish and black than blue and royal blue. I still like it, it just wasn't the colors I expected based on the picture, even though it clearly says turquoise and royal blue on the website(doh!). It has pockets which are always useful and side slits at the bottom, so it will need to be worn with something underneath. I should also mention it comes in two other colors: yellow and a lime greenish color.

What do you ladies think? As usual share your comments and opinions.
