Abstract Art

I found this dress a few months ago at a local thrift store.  
There it was.  
A single sleeve with bright colors.  
I had to have it.  

But then off went my little baby into the closet.
And there it sat.
For 6 months.

It's not that I forgot about my sweet little dress, it's just that I needed to alter it just a little bit.
So I took in the sleeves..and the bust..and added a belt.
 So when we were invited to a henna for the following night, I wasn't sure what to wear.  
My sweet little abstract dress whispered to me.
And so I wore it.

And then I asked Alaa to take pictures of me.  
And then he rolled his eyes, looked at his watch, and said "The party started 30 minutes ago"
To which I replied, "Habibi...Arabs are always late."
So we went outside to take pictures, and found our awkward neighbors sitting on the steps/ in a parked car/ and chasing each other around with water guns.  I'm sure they thought we were loco and that I was conceited having my husband take pictures of me.   But they just don't get the hidden world of blogging.

And then while waiting to meet up with my mom + sisters we took more pictures. 
To which my husband rolled his eyes again and laughed at me.

Then we headed off to the party.

And we were right on time...


  1. Awww you look fantastic, such a pretty sight! :)

    People often stop and stare when I am taking outfit photos as well, it's really annoying but I have since learnt to ignore them hehe.
