Trip 39 / Entry 11 / Turkish Fashion?

The local fashion statement

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

IMG_3679Quite honestly, there are some things that make no sense. Sometimes I don’t get out much but as we went out for a prayer walk around the neighborhood, women were coming out of their houses, bustling down the street, standing in their doorways, shopping in what could only be called night or housecoats. These are the Walmart terry cloth kind and not in the least fashionable, though I did see one lady in a tiger pattern. By comparison, it was quite a turn on. The housecoats might sport Disney cartoon characters or perhaps another that had an outer space theme with a rocket on it way to Mars with planets and stars, all on a dark blue field. I have no idea how anyone would ever think this is attractive.

    Tony, Thanks for the laugh! When we lived there in 1991 we would attend meetings with directors of hospitals and other administrators all dressed in white and blue fuzzy bathrobes. It was hard to take anything they said seriously. I can hardly believe it is still the dress code, although the new patterns add a certain panache!
