Watch: Modest Try-On Haul


I went a little crazy with local and international online modest shopping, but I found so many forever-pieces that I love! On that note, here we have a try-on haul.

All but one of these items are still available online and linked down below.

Also, for all my South African babes wondering about customs fees with Riva and Nasty Gal, the reality is, we can’t escape customs. Once all those charges are clear, you end up paying almost double the price that things costed on the website. However, it’s worth it when you shop sale/outlet items that are significantly marked down. So you won’t get things for super cheap necessarily, but you WILL get unique modest items that you can’t find locally. For example for me, when shopping on Riva’s sale, it’s super worth it because their items are so stylish, the quality is incredible and you know it’s going to be modest and thought-through with modesty in mind. After customs fees, my 6 Riva purchases from Riva’s online outlet section amounted to a final total of about R3000, so it came to about R500 per item. Considering what I got out of it, I felt it was more than worth it!
