[2nd Bi-Annual Hijabi Fashion Week]: Day 6-Vacation Wear!

Ah! Today's theme rubs a bit of salt on the wounds. One of my biggest (generic) desires is to travel the world--eighteen years have passed by and I've really only been to two continents.
Still, relative to those who've never left their hometowns, I guess this is an Advantage of Being an Immigrant #74.

Also, which fool perpetuated the stereotype that all blogs must be non-fictitious? Screw that! Uhhhh, I mean, the following are real accounts of my wild, adventurous, seemingly-far-fetched travels:

When I arrived in Verona, Italy last summer, just outside the airport was the quaintest roadside stall. It was difficult not to fall in love with these genuine Italian-leather flats.

When I ventured on to Paris, a young dapper that qualified 100% according to The Checklist (kidding! There is no checklist), offered a tour of the city through the eyes of a (really-easy-on-the-eyes) local. On his Vespa we sailed through town. He offered me his vest as the chilly Parisian night set in. But I forgot to give it back to him. I don't even remember his name!

After my mainstream European destinations had been fulfilled, I braved a rocky, turbulence-laden flight to Malaysia. It was Urooba's Sartorial Heaven: brightly/nicely dressed fellow hijabis! Mix in yummy food and I had myself a fine, fine vacation. Also went to a clothing swap with some cool Malay ladies and scored the above printed dress.
