In the market in Yogya, a stand selling jilbab.  So many of the Muslim women here are very stylish.  They wear beautifully adorned jilbab in all the colours of the rainbow, carefully coordinated with the rest of their outfit.  They cover up very creatively.

    Those are some very pretty colours. I like the purple one down in the bottom right.
    There was an article on SMH.com a couple of weeks back about how Australian Muslims were rockin’ the maxi dress these days and looking very stylish. I was inspired to go out and buy my own maxi dress.
    It makes me look pregnant.

    I haven’t dared try a maxi dress because of the pregnant factor…plus they are always so long I think if I wear one I will fall arse over tit. I thought the maxi dresses were last summer anyway? Or is it one of those trends that has continued on? I’m so out of the loop.

    Damn, I forgot to check back to see if you’d replied. Maxi dresses were last summer, but they’re this summer too. I think the weather might have something to do with it – it’s an incredibly comfortable style when it’s 30+ and blazingly sunny.
