Beauty on the Outside: Creative Overgarments

Salaams and Salutations Beauties,

Its HOT in the CITY!! 100 degrees here in the DC area. I pray you are staying cool and hydrated where EVER you are.

So when its hot and heavy outside..What is a hijabi/mujalbaba to do? I wear cool and light colors with light and thin hijabs. Need some linen styles? Check out Creative Overgarments (dot) com. Sister Tawanda is doing it up. Providing sisters with unique and creative styles to wear. Now I purchased linen for my overgarments..but one can purchase heavier fabrics for the winter.

In June she ran a special: 3 overgarments for $95 dollars and free shipping. It basically came out to 'buy two get one free'. Customers provide the fabric, that's fine with me. Below are pics of the three styles I choose.

This turquoise overgarment is the :Scrunch empire

This one is the :scrunch sleeve in pink

This is the:belted in Khaki(natural linen)

I have worn two so far. Lots of complements. Lots of interest.

For July Sister Tawanda the special is '$35 overgarments w/ 2 details w/ free shipping and fast turnaround time. Material not included.' Turn around time is fast and Sister Tawanda is very much the business women. She will save your measurements in her database so you only need to send them once. She makes sure her clients are satisfied to they can order again.

Looking for something for EID? Get on it how!! Fabric is on sale till Labor Day.

B Beautiful!!
