Bad Hair Days No More

20 Mar

Kay Bruce wears abaya

 

When I first moved to the Middle East I thought it must be no fun for the local ladies to cover up their cool clothes and gorgeous hair…but then I started to get to know local ladies and realised there are some definite upsides to the Abaya and Sheila….such as hiding bad hair days!!

To be honest – for the hour or so I wore this abaya I did feel somewhat claustrophobic. But I guess, once you get used to it, it could be quite liberating – you could wear your pyjamas to the shops!! (and Tesco could do nothing about it!)

This blog is on style and not limited to fashion, so here are a couple of pics of an incredibly beautiful building.

Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is wonderful. For a religion that is often associated with masculine power and domination, this mosque is incredibly feminine.
