The first time I accidentally found out about getGorgeous, I was hooked. Well, here's one online boutique that does not only sell clothes, it also took the initiative to present the clothes or accessories that they sell in such a way that make you feel like buying it! And somehow everytime I found something that I like from their shop, most of them are either not in my size or sold out. The brainchild of two beautiful and stylish sisters, Azlia and Allia, the shop caters from the regular size to plus size types. And with a motto "Fashion for Muslim Chic", now who said tudung-wearing ladies can not be stylish themselves.
What's interesting about getGorgeous is they don't only sell clothes or accesories, they also will help you to find style that suits you with useful tips and tricks and sometimes they even organise events and activities. Don't believe me? Go visit them at getgorgeous.com.my and you will know what I mean. And today I am so lucky to have getGorgeous in Supermummy Amazing Blog Friday. Let's get to know getGorgeous better ya!

Soon, we transformed our own bedroom into a little store cum workstation as there have been an encouragingly increase demand on our product, and the goods have taken more spaces, making our mom very uneasy about all those cluttered stuffs ;p
