Abayas are one the items of clothing that I absolutely love, but don’t have many of. Wait, let me amend that to “gorgeous abayas” are something I don’t have enough of. I love wearing them and they always make me feel so elegant, not to mention modest! Boutique Al Khaleejia (one of my most amazing advertisers) recently sent me this abaya. It’s similar to the DAS Collection Spring 2011 Coral abaya.

Boutique Al Khaleejia sells a huge range of gorgeous abayas from the Arabian Gulf. I chose this Ruffle Chiffon Abaya in particular for the elegant drapey cut, and the sparkly stone belt. I love the way it looks, with the pink peaking out of the black. The black fabric is something called ‘nidah’ while the coral fabric is french chiffon. The whole thing is surprisingly light, not nearly as heavy as I thought it would be. You can actually customize the color of the front panel, and order the length that fits you best. I wasn’t sure which size to order but they were extremely helpful and it fits really well. It actually has a hidden belt inside so that you can tighten only the front panel, while the back stays loose and flowy- genius!

This abaya is one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve ever owned. It’s beautifully made, and it got shipped to me quickly, even though they had to tailor the length. I definitely recommend buying your authentically Khaleeji items from Boutique Al Khaleejia.
The selection of items they carry is huge. I mean, I kind of wish they were a brick and mortar store so I could literally go there and sleep amongst all the gorgeousness. (Sorry, is that weird?) They also create custom designs if that’s something you’re interested in.

You can purchase the abaya here, and I highly encourage you to follow them on Facebook, because that’s where you get to hear about all the sales!

Lastly, I’d like to give a huge thank you to my friend, E. for modeling this abaya for me!

    Salam alaikum. Can you please explain what nidah is like? Is it light silky material used for Saudi abayas or something different? I heard that Saudi abayas are made of the fabric which is very light and it is not hot to wear in summer. Do youperhaps know online shops selling such abayas?

       Yes, it’s really very light and you can buy them at Boutique Al Khaleejia (http://www.khaleejia-boutique.com/), just make sure to look for the abayas with nidah fabric. Hope that helps!

    Wow! So elegant and beautiful MashaAllah. The abayas coming out in the past few years with all of the beautiful draping fabric and flow are amazing. :-)

    the abaya is very nice though the one in DAS is more original .. .. and I don’t recommend “nidah” fabric or as we call it in the Emirates “nada” because its not that black .. it looks gray while walking under the sun .. their is another fabric called “kraib” or “saudi Kraib” its so much black .. a bit heavier but black and so elegant ..
