Shopping Spree | Hajj Prep #1

The last time I posted a shopping haul, I had vowed to control my Amazon splurge to a minimum.

And I did that, until June 2022.

Let’s talk about the hiatus for a minute. It wasn’t a hiatus. It was a 6 weeks long pilgrimage to the holy cities of Makkah Mukarramah and Madinah Munawwarah. So, I decided to go crazy while preparing for this spiritual journey.

While most of the prepation was spiritual in nature, I also wanted to buy a few new dresses for the holy journey. I splurge on clothes all the time. I should probably spend more whilst I’m going for this ziyarat of Al Masjid Al Haram and Al Masjid Al Nabawi.

This is the first dress I liked and ordered.

It looks so elegant and classy. I loved it. 


The black colour isn’t as black, the print isn’t as bright. The fabric is sheer, the colour bleeds, and after wearing it thrice during my visit to Makkah Mukarramah and Madinah Munawwarah, it looks too old to be worn. I can’t wear it in office etc now.

Not so happy with this purchase.

PS: this isn’t an affiliate post. I shared about it because I am a genuine buyer and Amazon aficionado.
