This is not really a tale, but I did happen to get caught in bad weather with both of the following outfits. Now I’ve probably mentioned earlier that I’m no fan of Michigan weather, and so I pretend as if this is not my current reality, but dressing with less material than what the weather usually requires. I’m all about dressing a certain way to feel a certain way. Dressing for Michigan springs, however, while pretending to dress for normal spring, makes you feel nothing but cold and/or soaked. I’m feeling a little less cold these days, though, so that can only be a good sign.
First off, I had recently received two beautiful full-coverage maxi dresses from Zananah Label (website here, Facebook page here) and I wanted to wear one as soon as possible. The buttons and black velvet pattern throughout this white chiffon dress made it look a little prairie-a little hippie-esque to me, and so I paired it with a fringed suede vest and a Western-style pendant with feathers. Loving the look and the feel of the garment, and so I really recommend that you check their site out for this and other models – they have a diverse dress collection with different materials and colors utilized. In any case, as soon as my roomie started taking my pictures, the sky opened and hail struck down, ending what had been an ok day thus far.

The second time around (and less than one week later), I exited my home in the below ensemble and found the weather to be really hot and humid; almost tropical. That would signalize a storm on its way, of course, but silly me did not think about fetching an umbrella. This, then, resulted in my being soaking wet within 3 minutes from stepping outside later that day – except my hijab and face which I covered with my bag, to some khaleegi guys’ great amusement. Hah, let them laugh. At least my makeup survived.
