Cap and Cape at Classic Car Meet

Classic car shows/meets are famous for the glamorous manteau styles worn by attendees (such as this..or this older one), and this one does not disappoint! Against a backdrop of some vintage 1970s cars, there is a thoroughly modern outfit involving a black manteau with plaid cuffs, sneakers, black pants, and a black cap worn with a red scarf. The latter is a very rare style and is always awesome to see!

The cape manteau in meaningful and lovely purple is worn with a pink sweater and a printed silk scarf framing black hair and bright red lipstick, which is itself a very vintage look. It’s nice to see capes going strong through 2017, and I hope they will continue to appear in 2018.

Red Applique Hoodie and Watermelon Cake

I am fascinated by that watermelon cake..I wonder if it is really watermelon-flavored! The style is incredible too- black snood pushed back to show off glossy red hair, the stylish Northern eye make-up, the gold bracelets and rings, and the red hoodie with the applique on the back, worn over a navy blue top (unfortunately, the rest of this outfit is not visible).

Smog Masks at the End of the Year Part II

The outfits in this post become more interesting and even trailblazing, despite the limitations of the smog masks…first, an-all black outfit with a pushed-back snood and a white fur-hooded parka worn open….

…then check out this puffy vest-like black coat with grey sweater sleeves….or maybe this IS a vest over a hoodie? The green and black scarf is crocheted, allowing the cool black blond-streaked hair to be seen…

Another interesting color combo…mustard yellow jacket, black and white striped tunic top (which matches the hair-showing snood!), blue jeans, and grey boots….

…and finally, the first time I have ever seen a Bart Simpson t-shirt as part of manteau style- with an open “urban combat” style olive green sleeveless manteau, laced-up tall sneakers, and a dark olive green scarf framing beautiful hair….love this combination!

The Giant Photo Expo Set – Part II

The outfits in this part of the set are quite inventive and cool…first, a slightly more conventional grey and black plaid manteau worn with a pushed-back snood and ankle boots…

now for the coolness- how about a red and white polka dot dress manteau worn with a….YES…hat and scarf set, a rare and rebellious feature of winter manteau styles- and in this case, the hat happens to be a red beret showing off a ponytail through the back!

Another cool style involves an open olive green cardigan and an equally open olive green scarf over a beige turtleneck sweater. The red and green striped scarf on the right is pretty too…

…finally, a conventional black coat features a huge red shawl-like collar which is a bold and attention-getting detail. Love it!

Luxe Life and Cat

I found some “luxury life” photos focusing on North Tehran luxury life recently. The majority of the photos are of villas and parties, and, therefore, fall outside of the scope of this blog…but there are some manteaus there, too….like this one…a gorgeous all-black outfit, surprisingly subtle and beautiful make-up (even winged eyeliner!), and….a beautiful white and red cat! Always a pleasure to see love and compassion for animals combined with gorgeous fashions…

Green Coat and Yellow Scarf on Graffiti Stairs

I am not exactly sure where these stairs are, with their colorful steps and gritty graffiti walls (one tag says “Calm” and then “Exit” and the other says “Paliz”, which is a girl’s name)….I believe that these stairs are somewhere near the North Central Tehran section of Valiasr Avenue, as I have seen some photos related to them before. However, this is the first time I have seen such a cool outfit against this urban background – a bright green coat, black pants and shoes, and a bright yellow scarf.
