IslamicBoard has joined the SHUKR Islamic Clothing affiliate program. Our members had been recommending new Muslims and all those looking for online Islamic clothing to purchase them from Shukr clothing since 2005.
If you are looking for something to purchase for Eid, then hurry up because their last day for Eid shipping is 28 June.
Shukr has so many lovely things. Unfortunately they cost a lot! :/

Check their clearance section and buy a few skirts at a time. That's what I do. I still have some of their first collection of skirts from like 6 or 7 years ago that I could still theoretically wear (if I fit into them ).
No, I do not work for shukr, I'm just a huge fan. I wear a shukr skirt every day of the week, paired with a long sleeve top that I buy from department stores.
One way to spice up a wardrobe for not very much money is different scarves. I wear all black a lot - black skirt, black shirt, black socks, black shoes - and then wear a different color scarf. Makes it look like a somewhat different outfit.
No hoodies though it seems. Also Akhee IbnAlAqwa...There's a bro round here does the IlmWear stuff. He stocks it I mean.

Well, it turns out that long skirts and tunics are quite popular in the USA if you go to stores like Marshalls, Ross, etc. These, for the non Americans among us, are discount stores where you can buy good clothing cheap. I saw another thread where a sister was not able to dress properly because her mother did not want to spend money on new clothes. For anyone with this concern, if you live in a place with these stores you might want to visit.

Do you wear a hijab(only head covering), full burka(complete body covering including face), Chaddar/burqa(complete body covering but not the face) or just modest clothes with no traditional garments. - I wear shukr. Literally, that's my style. I'll wear a shukr skirt, a long sleeve shirt (tshirt on the weekend) plus a scarf.
Do you work outside the home? If yes, then what do you do? - yes. I'm a paralegal (ie a lawyers assistant). After college, I had no clue what I wanted to do. I thought perhaps I'd like to be a lawyer, so I thought better see how it is to be a lawyer first. Thus, I studied to be a paralegal. Now I'm pretty darn sure I don't want to be a lawyer. Don't really know what I do want to do though

well, how does this work? I have never used this service before
A mail forwarder, for example https://www.shipito.com , allows you to get a US or some other international mailing address. You can ship your purchase to their location, and then they will forward the shipment to you for some cost.
In some countries, the local postal service also has a forwarding service with a virtual address in US, UK or elsewhere. Try asking them first. You will have to register with them first and they will provide you with a virtual address that can be used while shopping online.
