Student Outfit in the Mountain Sledge

We’ve already seen one photo of a girl walking by this motorized sledge running on a track in a North Tehran mountain resort. Now, finally, here is a photo of a girl actually riding IN the sledge…while wearing the classical student outfit- black coat, jeans, pushed-back snood, and sneakers (these ones are slightly taller than usual and are black and green). Her face does not seem too happy though…perhaps, this sledge is not as fun as it looks.

Sleeveless Flower Print Coat Selfie

This is yet another selfie next to some egg sculptures; however, these are not the huge installations I posted earlier but, rather, some smaller painted eggs and blue bowls with other spring-like items (looks like flowers and garlic) in them. The black shoes with stripes or cut-outs on the sides seem to be appearing quite often this spring. The manteau, a sleeveless one worn over a black long-sleeve top, is covered with a bright flower print, which is also very spring-like, and the pushed-back snood shows off lovely make-up and auburn hair nicely. The theater behind them is the same one that showed up in this photo – it is in downtown Tehran, and it is an iconic building that dates back to the 1970s.


Long Brown Coat and Pushed-Back Snood

The long brown coat worn over skinny black pants is an absolute fashion classic…as is the snood pushed far back to show off dark brown hair. The plastic bag with the Fendi logo on it, however, is somewhat funny (since when does Fendi make plastic bags?), as are the black and white thick-soled slip0-on shoes. Apparently, these shoes are quite trendy this year, although I have never seen anyone wear them yet!


Egg Painting Festival Outfits Part II

(Part I is here)

Without much ado, here is the next part of the giant set of outfits from the egg painting festival. First, here is a red and black marled coat, a rarity since most marled-fabric manteaus I have posted here were grey. The coat is worn with a black scarf with a silver border that looks like a snood from some angles.


Can you see the above outfit in the photo below? Yes, the girl in the red and black marled coat is off to the right in the background! In the foreground, a woman in a beige smocked tunic worn over a brown long-sleeve top  and a green scarf showing off short hair is painting some geometric patterns on an egg sculpture.


The next two outfits also involve the color red in some way…for example, here is a red and black plaid manteau worn with a pushed-back black scarf, sneakers, and pants…nice color choice! Looks like she is sketching a preliminary pattern on the egg that is quite intricate.


…and here is a red manteau worn with a beige scarf in the foreground (there is also an olive coat worn with jeans and ankle boots in the background). The woman in the red coat seems to be painting a rooster head – cock-a-doodle-doo!




Finally, a rarity appears for the 2nd time in 2017 – the “coat with skirt” ensemble! Once again, the skirt is of a green color (a more olive shade) and the outfit also involves a black trench coat worn on top of another dark tunic and a turquoise scarf. Most likely, this is a group of painters taking a celebratory selfie upon completion of the egg painting- a color-block one behind them may be one of their creations.


Yes, there is a Part III…and it’s coming soon!
