Epic Egg Painting Festival Photos – Part III

Part I, Part II

This part of the set mostly features close-up photos…like this one of a red manteau with multicolored threading throughout and (yes!) a white baseball cap over a burgundy scarf…this style is still rare, but it’s useful when one is painting and needs to put hair out of the way.  The horse on the egg is quite intricate and requires much concentration, which would not happen without that cap…

A silk scarf tied behind the head (turban-style) is also highly useful when one is painting…that’s why it is worn this way with the pink and white linen striped manteau.


An inventive half and half manteau (multicolored rhombus print on top, navy blue with tassels on the bottom) is paired with a simple, black snood…


Finally, here is a grey and blue plaid coat in close-up…


..and in full view- and the black scarf it is paired with is fully open- a long ponytail flows down the woman’s back….love it!




Epic Egg Painting Festival Photos – Part II

(Part I)

Continuing with the egg painting set, we find a classic combination – navy blue coat and red scarf…against as back drop of spring-like flowers blooming and birds chirping…

An open waterfall cardigan over an ikat-print top has made it here too…

..and so did the eternal staple of this festival- plaid manteaus! Here is one in blue and white, worn with an open purple scarf through which red hair flows out the back proudly. The red, black, and white tree branch design on the egg has a cool, Japanese-inspired vibe, while the knight and horse on the green egg in the background look very artistic!

Finally, here is a beautiful red and white shirt manteau, worn by a girl painting a little bird house in a blue sky…

…and now in full view…An interesting detail of this outfit is the black (or navy blue??) cuffs on the coat. The brown boots (slightly Timberland-inspired) are very cool too (and can you see the blue and white coat from 2 photos up?).

Part III is coming soon…

Epic Egg Painting Festival Set- Part I

This year, the egg painting festival photo set has outdone itself…yes, there are even more outfits than in 2017. I believe this is also because, this year, the festival was not just in Tehran but in other locations as well….

The festival staple is the scarf tied behind the ears- to make it easier to paint, of course, but it also becomes a defiant and cool gesture…This girl, for example, wears a purple scarf tied behind the ears…

…and a cool grey open cardigan with puffy sleeves over a brown and white plaid shirt (matching the brown boots?) and olive green pants. The egg itself is white and blue, with a red bird on it (???).

The egg here is stunning- jet black with a huge pink flower on it…and, while the black scarf here is worn in a more typical way, the purple plaid manteau is refreshingly different.

Those who cannot draw as beautifully are watching from the sidelines…including this girl in an all-black outfit paired with bright pink sneakers.

…finally, another scarf behind the ears in rich burgundy, worn with a red and white plaid manteau- this leaves us with 3 of the 4 outfits being plaid!

More plaid outfits and other egg painting photos are coming soon…

Parka, “Body Con” Colorblock Manteau, and Pearl-Embroidered Jeans by the River

The 3 women are by a river pouring out water in a spring rite of passage…and one wears an olive green parka coat with a furry collar, which is a wintry look, as opposed to the light coats of the other 2 women. My favorite is the outfit on the right, as it features 1) a body-con (fitted strips of fabric) color-block white, navy blue, and grey manteau and2) jeans with beautiful large pearl decoration on them. Unfortunately, I was unable to find jeans like this and had to settle for jeans with a polka dot print all over (which still look cool)….



Trying on Fringy Scarves

Just a couple of weeks after this post, the fringy scarf appears once again, this time with a beige manteau with a military style “frog closure”. In fact, this woman is trying on 2 different fringy scarves (blue and red) at the same time with the coat, which is the first time I’ve seen this combination. Nice to see fringy scarves still going strong in 29018!


Navy Blue Flower-Printed Coat and Semi-Transparent Paisley Scarf

There are many cool features in this outfit- the flower prints or appliques on the navy blue manteau, the black leggings, and the big bag (these are usually utilized by architects or artists to carry around their portfolios)…but the coolest of them all is the paisley-printed scarf…why? Because it’s almost completely see-through, of course!


Fire Jumping in Mint Green Manteau

This year, with all the multitudes of photos, there is one category in which a dearth of photos occurred- fire jumping photos (to compare, here is what was posted just 2 years ago, in 2016)….I only found 1 photo, albeit of a beautiful mint green manteau (one of my favorite colors) worn with black leggings and pushed-back scarf….
