In the last couple of years, this expo has yielded lots of awesome styles…this year is continuing the tradition…in fact, the first photo in the set is not even from the expo itself but from the set-up of the displays the day before (!!!), which is another first..fittingly enough, it’s a lilac coat worn with an open purple flower-printed scarf, through which long blond hair flows beautifully…
On to the expo itself…it seems that grey coats are very popular at this expo. See for yourself! First, here is a grey sweater coat with a smiley face t-shirt underneath…
Then here comes the classic grey manteau with black pockets and cuffs and a pushed-back black snood…
…and finally a grey one-button-closure coat, also worn with a pushed-back black snood.
And for a change, here is a relative rarity – a cape-style manteau in beige (only the 3rd one I have seen so far) worn with a black long-sleeve top underneath and a flower-printed scarf draped to show red hair. I hope the baby is having fun at the expo!
Stay tuned for more….
Now, it is time to continue the book fair photos…next to a creepy bandaged skeleton statue (I suppose this continues the “expo statue” tradition) is a lovely woman in a beige manteau with ribbed panels and beige printed silk scarf tied low to show off red hair.
Another patterned silk scarf tied low is worn with a black coat unbuttoned to show a blue flower-printed top underneath.
This manteau looks like a throwback to those designer coats from 2011 or so that can be found in the Aida Rahimi or Deja Vu categories. The paisley panels and cuffs are straight from that era. The rest of the outfit is, surprisingly, all beige.
Finally, a purple coat and green scarf- amazing! That hits all of the major rebellious colors in one outfit.
I have never heard of this event before, but here is the website for it…it is called Creative Mornings, and it is a worldwide phenomenon involving a breakfast and a talk on a creative subject! So far, there have been 2 of these in North Tehran, and these are a few outfits from the first one. As you would expect, the outfits are highly creative…just check out that denim sleeveless manteau over a yellow long-sleeve top with a lovely green scarf showing off auburn hair and that amazing make-up! There’s also a faded green coat with an olive green scarf that looks pretty cool….
…as well as this outfit, involving a purple jacket over a blue flower-printed tunic, black cut-off leggings , and a purple and yellow paisley scarf. Looking awesome!
As far as purple outfits go, this is one of the coolest ones, especially because of the gorgeous magenta shade of the coat and the kimono-style sleeves, a vintage feature that is rarely seen in manteaus now. A dark purple scarf shows off black hair, as the woman prepares to pour some water at a picnic on a park bench.
That railing and that greenery mean only one thing….this is a Nature Bridge selfie! Joining the long list of awesome outfits from this iconic North Tehran bridge is this blue tie-dyed tunic and acid-washed jeans and, surprisingly (or maybe, not so surprisingly) a dark purple scarf showing most of the girl’s brown hair. Even the man with her has a funky ponytail!
This photo marks a first….a photo involving a parrot! The girl is wearing a gorgeous outfit, consisting of a richly purple manteau, white pants, and a matching scarf perched atop a tall hairstyle. The older man (most likely her father) is holding the inhabitant of the open cage in front of her -a small green parrot. I hope the parrot enjoyed picnicking in the park just as much as the owners did!
In the past few years, the amount of amazing photos I could find for this blog has increased hugely….now that means that something is right. Yes, every day now, I find an average of 2 photos a DAY!
The photo showcases all 4 elements of what brings that attitude:
- Green ribbon
- Purple ribbon
- Victory sign
Let’s get it!
