finally found a coat

I have been looking for a suitable winter coat for a long time now, i wear a cape styled head scarf that comes down below my knees i found wearing a coat over it defeted the puropse of the hijab, in the sense the garment is now tight and describing my body shape, not to mention the tightness around the arms and chest with the material of the cape head scarf. Also the creasing of the head scarf when removing it. I opted for wearing tight fitting cardigans under it but these are not warm enough on bitterley cold days, I think its been about 4 years i have been like this , until Ammena on her blog posted about a place she shops online Here and i had a look as the clothes there are really nice but expensive, good for the working woman modest conservative clothing yet stylish. It was also the time of the January sales ,boy do i miss the sales :( well this place has some items on sale and guess what i found a coat!!!! more in the form of a poncho
so witout further hesitation I purchased it !!! I now have it here in Algeria with me alhamduillah , its mashaAllah so lovely , warm and classy,fabric is wool fleece, only down side is it collects fluff. i noted it was made in Syria, i just love it, do you like it ?
