Hidden pearls had contacted me for reviewing their hijab products.
I was very excited and happy because this is the first time I was offered this kind of opportunity.
After exchange of mails and agreements, the hijabs arrived after a long wait of 20 days.
I had requested her for light and comfortable hijabs, that I can wear for long time without feeling too hot in this Jeddan Summer weather.
She sent me two hijabs : An off-white chiffon hijab.
A leopard print turkish hijab.
The first time I laid my eyes on the turkish hijab, I was like wow. I hadn’t seen this type anywhere yet. I live in Jeddah where the hijab, Scarves market is huge. Millions of pilgrims who come every year to Makkah definitely buy scarves, stoles and all kinds of hijab from Jeddah to carry back home. That is a must on everyone’s shopping list. We ourselves buy a lot of hijabs every year to gift to our relatives in India.
But I haven’t seen the complete leopard print hijab in Jeddah market yet. It was completely new to me. The fabric is great. It is light and airy as they had promished. It is shimmery but elegant, with a nice crisp feeling fabric. The colors are bright. It is a party wear type scarf. This will go very well with any leopard print top or leggings. I could definitely wear it in an all-ladies gathering and it would be a head turner for sure.
The second one is an off-white chiffon scarf, more like a dupatta that we desis wear with salwar-kameez. Or what you call a stole. I wore it for an hour and half to see if I would feel too hot but alhumdulillah, it was very comfortable and I had actually forgotten that I was wearing it. It is so light and soft. I didn’t pin it, rather I just tucked the end inside but it still didn’t come out all the while I had my dinner. This scarf is light, airy and smooth without being slippery. It didn’t slide. It didn’t come out.
