New on Dear Confashion

New businesses and announcements have been added to Dear Confashion page. Click here to find out the latest. Featured photo is by Kuwait-based online shop Local Tees. I've been dying to get this "Jealous much" t-shirt,  designed by Jassim Al Saddah for ages and now it's already sold out! Bummer!

Update: I noticed that some readers were offended by this photo. I personally didn't get the idea behind it at first, so I asked a friend to clarify and it was then explained to me that it's a parody of a young girl showing off her diamond engagement ring  to a group of what supposed to look like very old unmarried ladies. The guy is holding the ring and pretending like he's proposing. I didn't notice that at first so I took a closer look and I now grasped the idea behind it.

I can see why people can easily misinterpret the image as the engagement ring/box hardly show. Plus they could have used a mix of old ladies one with veil and one without. I don't think it was intended to offend anyone. Maybe someone from Local Tees can comment on this?

Honestly I didn't get the concept of yje ad/photo myself or what was it trying to hint it. I'm only interested in the t-shirt which I liked so much.

I can see your point and why people can easily misinterpret the image as the engagement ring/box hardly shows. I don't think it was intended to offend anyone. Maybe someone from Local Tees can clarify more on this?

in my openion a photo is considered to be poor one if the viewers do not get it !!

so i think with full of respect (it is just my professional opinion) it is poor one !! because i had to read your explaination to understand they want to ad what ?

second the idea is a bet disrespectfull to our culture .. i mean we must respect those covered ladies because they are Muslims and they are following their believes of eslam.

third i think it is inappropiate pausing too. the photographer should care about the shirts to show not the proposal !!! and the old lady shouldn't feature her hand like that i( thought she wants money )!! and the ring is not even seen in the photo !!

it is all about pausing, and phtography
