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!


Posing by the Waterfall

The waterfall shown here looks similar to the one from this post; however, it is not the same fact, the waterfall here is Ganj Nameh and it is in the Hamedan area. The fashions here are meant for selfies, which means they are great- specifically the puffy-sleeved cranberry red manteau worn with a bright red long-sleeve top and a turquoise-green scar that is worn open to show hair. I like the man’s shirt too with its funny logo – “Young” and then “#madboys” – this is the first time there has been a hashtag logo on the blog!


The printed jersey dress manteau is going strong here, in gorgeous black and green, and the green scarf frames dark red hair beautifully. I commend this woman for getting her daughter to put a headband on at that age – from my own experience, they do not all appreciate things on their head! That said, I am not a big fan of headbands on babies anyway…




Beach Selfies and a Water Gun

These beach photos come from a Persian Gulf resort (not Kish Island)…and prove that the styles from those resorts are just as fashionable as those from the Caspian ones. The style below involves jeans, a blue manteau, a beige scarf, and….a little water gun….great for a selfie!


Another beach selfie involves a cool navy blue manteau with white lace edging and bows on the sleeves, worn with a black scarf and leggings. I think the leggings are perfect at the beach and for summer, in general…this summer, I have been trying to wear leggings outside of work as much as possible.


Stunning Photography Expo Outfits

It’s photography expo time, and it means a lot of awesome, unique, and boundary-pushing outfits. Below, there are two different outfits with open scarves showcasing long braids flowing down the women’s backs. First comes an all-white outfit (yes, even the scarf)…

whitemanteauopenscarfbraidphotographyexpo, and then comes a red tunic covered with white flower print also worn with an open white scarf and white pants…I would love these for a casual day outfit. There is also an olive green coat on the left paired with a flower-printed silk scarf.


That rhinoceros + bird photo is very cool…I wonder if the rhino let the bird explore in its mouth. The brown striped manteau on the girl looks vaguely poncho-ish, but not quite. I have an open sleeveless burgundy, green, and black striped tunic with fringed edges, and this coat reminds me of it…


The ultimate bad-ass manteau, this coat features a huge back cut-out under which a transparent striped tunic is worn. I have a top in blue with alternating opaque and transparent strips like this. It’s very cool to see this kind of fabric in manteau style!


Nature Bridge – Selfies and Beyond

What would a summer be without a great set of photos from the Nature Bridge? First is a selfie (with selfie stick even) of a cool black manteau with what seems like white edging on the sleeves and a beige scarf framing dark hair…


..then comes a gorgeous view of North Tehran and a couple checking their cell phone- perhaps, they just took a selfie…the girl is rocking a denim coat with two faded areas that are positioned in a surprisingly eye-catching way.



Looking at the view is a beautiful girl in a beige belted manteau worn with a dark burgundy scarf showing off lots of hair…


…but that scarf is nothing compared to this fully open pink scarf 0- blond hair flows proudly down the back of this girl’s beige manteau and no one, NO ONE, can do a thing about it! I love to see this, especially against that classic Northern view.


Black Coat and Rolled Up Jeans on an Escalator

The outfit, with the basic black coat, rolled up jeans, black pushed-back scarf, tall laced-up boots, and aviator sunglasses, is a throwback to the vintage 2003-05 styles, especially to that “urban combat” fashion popular in that era. I have always wanted to put a photo on the blog from one of those overpasses with the glass roof that go above busy city streets, and I have finally found it!
