I just love the blue lighted sign and single fancy dress in the window of this dress shop. Saudi women wear dresses like these to weddings where only other women are in attendance because of the practise of extreme gender segregation here in Saudi Arabia. Men have their own separate wedding celebrations. Any time Saudi women are in the presence of men outside their own family, they must be covered except for their hands and faces – although the vast majority of Saudi women also wear face veils as well.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
