Orange Coat With Slits at Decorative Stone Expo

This is a first- a photo from an expo dedicated to decorative stones (marble, granite etc..).  In fact, even the booth behind the girl belongs to an Italian marble company called Officine Marchetti (I even happen to know someone with that surname myself…strange, isn’t it?..and no, they are not the owners of this company). The outfit is stunning- everything other than the orange manteau with beautiful high slits on the sides is actually white- from the diaphanous scarf to the pants to the sandals. P.S. Can you spot the red nail polish on the girl’s toes?


A Small Flower Expo Set

This set is from a small summer flower expo, which is not as extensive as its spring and fall cousins, but still manages to boast some cool styles.

What I find most awesome about this outfit is the combination of the beige ruffled sleeves showing from underneath the blue asymmetrical hem coat. I just wonder if the sleeves are part of the coat or belong to a top worn underneath it.


A little boy is studying flowers as his mother, wearing a lovely black diaphanous coat and leggings, looks on. Interestingly enough, both she and the woman in the blue asymmetrical coat have grey and pink patterned scarves…


..and now, a girl in a beautiful red summer dress follows towards a woman in an olive green coat worn fully open over a white top, beige pants, and brown sneakers. That little orange bow in her hair is simply the best!


Finally, the begonias must be watered…and when they are watered in a black semi-transparent coat with a checkered pattern overlay, it’s so much cooler!



Hello Dust Masks…

It seems like each summer, there is at least 1 dust storm photo set…and this summer is no exception. I think these may be from Hamedan once again….First, the masks join the classical student outfits (though the grey coat on the left is an interesting touch that I do not often see)…


..then they appear with not one, not two but…THREE denim manteaus! This one is worn with a black scarf with a pattern in the fabric….


…and here only the woman in the soft chambray manteau wears the mask, while the woman in the military-style jacket and black and white scarf does not.


I love the tasseled printed scarf here that makes the black and grey colors of the coat and pants more lively…too bad about the mask though.


A black and white manteau with tiny checkered print also appears…


..and finally, something different…the man in the pink shirt (very bold- I like it!) wears the mask, but the woman in a stunning fuchsia flower-print scarf does not. She also wears an amazing pink and black lace-print coat!


Stunning Looks at Tile and Ceramic Expo

Prior to this set, I’ve only seen one photo of an outfit from a ceramic and tile expo– and that was back in 2011! This year, however, the expo has outdone itself with some amazing styles. The one interesting thing about this expo is that, apart from the tiles and ceramics, there are also other home-related items exhibited, such as furniture, wood finishes, and bathroom fixtures. For example, the photo below shows some beautiful mirrors and sink cabinets. The white manteau below is also beautiful with its rhinestone buttons and pink edging (matching the diaphanous scarf thrown over one shoulder loosely).


This voluminous yet short, light blue manteau looks like something that stepped “fresh out the runway”…and the blue and yellow printed scarf shows off gorgeous long hair and beautiful make-up. You start thinking…can they get any better?


..and yes, they can! I had to take a minute to figure out this outfit- no, it is not a skirt…it is a long black manteau over black pants and black and white polka dot top. The sneakers are white, the scarf showing off blond-streaked hair is black, and the outfit itself is amazing.


Two all-black (well, almost) outfits can be seen here…and I am loving a black and white coat with cursive writing printed on it, since it is actually worn with leggings cut above the ankle (!!!) and high-heel shoes.


I love the pleated diaphanous material- I happen to have a black chiffon top with exactly such a hem. The black platform shoes are straight of the 1970s and the bright yellow printed scarf is huge but still shows gorgeous hair!


This is like a modern art masterpiece- a long coat that is white in the front, black in the back, and has blacks stripes on the hem and red pockets! Worn with red sneakers, black leggings, and a black snood (pushed back to show blond hair) against a deep rd background, this is a Mondrian painting come to life.


Beige Open Coat and Leggings With Slits at Painting Exhibition

This is one of the most gorgeous painting exhibition styles I have seen this year (and it’s hard to pick them, since they are all so amazingly creative) – a beige completely open manteau (with a white top underneath), black leggings with slits (!) in the ankles, beige high-heel shoes, and a printed silk scarf through which long black hair flows proudly out the front and sides. An instant classic? I  think so!
