Of course in my case faith influences very much my clothing style even if i cover my face pressured by my relatives, in any case it's well this way, now i'm not a care-free teenager anymore, indeed after the death of my mother i'm becoming more strict with myself. Now i wear a black burqa, it was my decision to resist tentation to lift the mesh-screen because in this case i would show completely my face while with the niqab i had the possibility to stay faceless with the mesh-screen lifted because i had however my mouth and my nose covered. I realize that the burqa is not a symbol of freedom but now i'm too shy to show my face in public, i'm not in Europe and i must follow some rules. :-)
