Eid Party!

I just got invited to an Eid party on Saturday! I'm excited, but neither my friend or I know what to wear. The girls having the party are Somali, but we don't think that they will be wearing traditional Somali clothes. Basically we don't want to look like weirdos showing up in a dira' while everyone else is wearing formal dresses or something else. We don't think they'll be wearing abaya either since its a ladies-only party.
.

Any suggestions?

Best thing to do is either to discreetly ask what they will be wearing, or just ask what is appropriate to wear? Usually, there is a dress code, i.e. no jeans and t-shirts.

yes, ask the person who invited you the dress code....

you two are geniuses! We'll just ask the hostess so we don't look like fools :-)

Yea I was gonna say the same. What to wear is such a hard topic when you don't know what everyone else is gonna wear. Have fun!

Looks like its gonna be a mix of dresses and dira', so my friend and i are so far leaning towards dira'. I will post a pic of whichever one i decide to wear.
