i love the idea with the denim
actually, they're mostly scarves, we call shawls, that we put on our heads since "covering up" is mandatory, but we play with the rules well, some of my friends will wear their scarves around their neck until they see people who might tell on them

when i first when to iran 5 years ago, i couldn't believe how beautiful the women are

and I have more pictures, A LOT, but I'm afraid of putting them up due to a political issues (elections, etc.) over there, but I'll look through and find ones that are appropriate.

I went 8 years ago and I totally agree they try a lot harder because hair is no longer and accessory. I would love to go back after all the political turmoil is over I have pictures as well but they are all film I might scan some.

lol that last (and maybe 2nd to last) is from the show Rick Steves' Europe
That episode was on only a few days ago, they seem to replay it here..
The women they showed were incredibly beautiful, really stylish with their hijabs with matching gloves. (The men too actually, minus the hijab.)

If i remember correctly there is a private part in the city.. mostly where the rich hang out? Rick said they were a little more laid back there, but maybe not to the point where you could dress completely freely

it's laid back everywhere. my family comes from a city where 20 years ago, everyone was obsessing with their head scarfs; now i returned back last year to that one city, and there were so many women with CLEAVAGE. they had a scarf, yet they had cleavage; i just wonder what they would do when government police see them
it's not much different when you go to rich parts of the city to poor, many over exagerate;

where can i find that Rick Steven's show?

i just learned a word from crying diamonds
..
i thought it was interesting since it's similar to the hijab, covering the hair for modesty.. but used in the West. Italy, England...
Quote:
The wimple is a garment of medieval Europe worn by women. It is a cloth which usually covers the head and is worn around the neck and chin. At many stages of medieval culture it was unseemly for a married woman to show her hair. A wimple might be elaborately starched, and creased and folded in prescribed ways, even supported on wire or wicker framing (cornette). Italian women abandoned their headcloths in the 15th century, or replaced them with transparent gauze, and showed their elaborate braids. Both elaborate laundry and elaborate braiding demonstrated status, in that such grooming was being performed by others. Geoffrey Chaucer in his Canterbury Tales has the Wife of Bath and also the Prioress depicted wearing them. Today the wimple is worn by some nuns who still don the traditional habit. [1] The King James Version explicitly lists "wimples" in Isaiah 3:22 as one of a list of female fineries, although the Hebrew term is rendered as shawl or cloak in other versions.

That's because they don't want to...
