In the past, I have had several series of posts of awesome manteau styles from various expos (such as 1, 2, 3, 4 from the food and chocolate expo in 2011 or the famous “manteau parade” set (1, 2, 3) from the food and furniture expos last year). These photos were notable in that they were intended by their “creators” (I use the term loosely) to disrespect and humiliate girls wearing glamorous avant-garde manteaus, but I have turned them into a celebration of incredible manteau style (just to mention one more incredible photo, appliance expo of 2013 is the most striking example of that).
Now, here comes yet another HUGE set of outfits from multiple expos. The main focus of this set seems to be on girls working at the booths at an expo of various goods for babies and children and a carpet expo (with some miscellaneous expos thrown in). The faces once again were blurred (even some of the expos’ attendees suffered this ignorant fate!), but the stylish outfits here will speak for themselves loudly and proudly! Now, without further ado, here is the first installment. The first two photos show the same booth at the babies’ and children’s expo (for a company called Tinybaby whose website I could not find, but a cached version I found shows it’s a baby-proofing service for houses) with girls wearing a typical “expo uniform”- black coat, black snood, and a bright scarf piece (usually in the company’s logo colors) around the neck. This outfit is so commonplace it’s a wonder to me why these girls were so laboriously blurred. Is it because…gasp..the snoods are pushed back? REALLY?
This booth (from an unknown expo, looks like cleaning/hygiene products) seems to have a Turkish flag in it…and these expos are supposed to be international, so why the hateful attitude towards your guests???? On the left, the navy blue manteau is worn with a black snood pushed back to show off dark hair and huge hoop earrings and white neck scarf (there is that expo uniform once again) as well as white woven-sole espadrille shoes (I have shoes like this in black and they are one of the most comfortable kinds of shoes in the world!). On the right is an awesome outfit involving a thin black scarf showing glossy dark hair and a white manteau with elbow-length studded sleeves, black skinny pants, and black cut-out flat shoes. I really love the studded-sleeve tunic- I have seen some sweaters here like this, but never a coat…
The next two photos are also from the children’s expo and are taken at a booth for Setband, which seems to produce rhinestone-encrusted hair clips for girls. The uniform for this booth is a black coat with a semi-transparent white scarf draped loosely.
At least, they didn’t blur the customer in this one…and it seems like she is wearing a poncho coat, or is it just me?
The last photo for today is from another booth at the babies’ and children’s expo for a company called Baby Care. I cannot find a website, but the name should be pretty self-explanatory. The girls at this booth were pushed-back black snoods and different coats. It is the girl in the foreground that has the best outfit though- a white below-the-knee manteau with a high-cut hem, showing her slim legs in fitted black skinny pants, which are lengthened even more by platform leopard-print heels! This outfit is perfectly designed to attract attention and to provide reassurance (and thus to gently persuade the customer to buy from the booth!), and those who hate it are the real morons!
Part II is coming very soon..so watch for it!
