I have done a review video for this modest clothing online store previously, here is a direct link that video:
This time I received a jilbab, as shown below, and a hijab to review for them.
I was sooooo happy and excited when I received these items! The jilbab was the perfect outfit to take on holiday with me (to Egypt) as it was made from a breathable fabric but wasn't sheer or see through. The cut was really sophisticated and it had just the right amount of detailing on it. The perfect jilbab to wear for going out in. The colour is navy blue, a different from my norm which is always black!...and it has teal lace and button detail on the front and sleeves. The design was more vintage and just looked great on. I have a video coming up where I show you how it looks with me wearing it. I will link the video here once its live.
One thing I can honestly say I LOVE about Black Orchids is that they have a good fit to their clothing. They have different sizes and lengths which you choose from when buying. It looks so much better when the clothes actually fit you the way it should! Not "one size for all" as lets face it... we aren't all one size!
Here is an example of their sizing guide for this particular jilbab:
Their customer service is fantastic with really friendly staff that are quick to communicate back with you. They have a Facebook page as well, which is always active:
Again, I have shown me wearing this hijab with the jilbab in the review video coming up. Once its' live on my channel I will link it here on my blog for you all to view. :)
All in all I have to say so far my experience on dealing with Black Orchids has been great. I honestly think they have a really good selection of unique pieces and hijabs. They also have a lot of handmade jewellery. They design all their own clothes in house and all their items have their logo on it. This to me shows uniqueness, and confidence in quality. Something I am always looking out for in clothing.
Definitely one of my favourite online stores for modest clothing and accessories.
