{Stylish Abaya Revolution}

I love the paisley embellished abaya with the patent leather red shoe. So pretty!

Excerpt from A Declaration of Independence:
"While the abaya remains black and obligatory [in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia], always including matching head and, sometimes, face covering, women like Ms. Yousef now exercise a measure of fashion independence by selecting the shape and decoration of their abayas. So just as Western women have different clothes for different occasions, most Saudi women own a variety of abayas to suit a variety of occasions from shopping to visiting to parties and, increasingly, to work."
