About us

A little bit about us...

We are two sisters who are learning more about modest wear and we're so excited to find out that modest does not equal to plain and boring. We love pretty clothes as does most girls. So that explains the apparel we bring in.

Why the name Aly Ary?

One of the main mission why we set up this shop (apart from getting to acquire pretty clothes) is to have more time with two cute boys named Aly and Ary respectively. So as the Hoobastank song goes (rock voice on)

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

(rock concert applause and whistles all around)

Thank you and now back to reality. Aly and Ary are 4 and 1.5years old respectively. These baby boys need constant attention, thus running this gives one of us time flexibility as compared to working in an office job.

Here's a picture of them

About instashawl...

We found it daunting to get ready to go out even as we watch the hijab tutorials while fumbling with a cloth. After watching and trying out the looks, we end up wrinkling the cloth (and in great agony with sore arm muscles) have to get the ironing board to smooth over the said piece of cloth again. And so, to simplify the process of wearing a hijab, instashawls comes to the rescue! Less than a minute to get a cloth covering over the head and chest? Yes please! Without compromising on style.

We hope you enjoy our story and thanks for taking the time to get to know us better!
