Colors of Jeddah

Malls are abundant. Fashion is…well…shocking!

On the streets, women are covered in black “abayas“, head to toe.

But fashion displayed on mannequins reveals an unexposed Saudi woman.

My experience roaming in the malls reminded me of the scene from Sex and the City 2 when a group of Arab women offer Samantha a place to hide from the angry, screaming men on the streets. Hidden behind their abayas was couture heaven!

Malls are indeed couture heaven!

However, what you see here are pictures from our visit to a souq which is a name for any open-air marketplace.



And here’s a selfie of me and my sister after a full day of shopping…(me on the left, my sister on the right)
