I am always on the look out for great places to shop for modest, yet fashionable clothing items. As a working professional, it is important to look clean and polished in the office. So when I found Melanie’s website Haute Hijab, I was definitely excited to shop. One of the things that I look for is quality over quantity. I love bargain chain stores like Forever 21, but I have found that after a few wears of the item, the item literally rips, or becomes unwearable. I would much rather have a piece that can withstand time because of the quality of the material, stitching, and workmanship. So while Haute Hijab’s prices are on the high end for some of my readers, I want to assure you that these pieces are definitely quality pieces that are worth the investment.
Here is a rundown of how I ordered my items through Haute Hijab:
Online Browsing: Haute Hijab is very easy to navigate. I was more interested in modest clothing, I clicked on the Clothing tab to browse. 2013 has been announced the year of Emerald Green, so I immediately fell in love with the Jade Tulip Silk Skirt. Since it is close to my birthday I sent a hint to the Hubster that this is just beautiful. Being a good Hubs, he took the hint and went online to check it out.
Buying Experience: So when the Hubster actually bought my skirt, he was very sweet and assumed I was a size 2 (I am not a size 2, but thank you Hubs for thinking I am thinner than I am!). Luckily, Melanie and I know each other from Instagram so when I let her know my Hubs purchased a skirt, she pinged me a note to ask if I really wanted a size 2. How sweet is that? I emailed her back letting her know that no, I needed a size 6 in reality. She immediately notified her team and they shipped the correct skirt. For readers who may not know Melanie, if you just email Customer Service, they are very responsive and will amend your order if necessary. I can’t say enough good things about the Customer Service experience with this site!
Shipping: There is FREE shipping to U.S. and Canada. For all other countries, shipping is a flat rate of $5.00. It ships quickly and you will get an email notification of when it ships along with a tracking URL. You can track when your package will arrive which is always nice!
When I finally opened my package, I found the sweetest note from the Haute Hijab team on a branded postcard thanking me for my purchase which I personally thought was such a nice touch. The only bad thing is that I foresee is my bank account getting smaller because I can see myself buying MORE from them!
