Fair skin acceptance

Tan envy20140610_110532

Those of you who are not best friends with the sun,  you have probably found ways to overcome this problem. Which solution did you find? Self tan, tanning pills or the sun-bed? Yes, I was guilty of being an advert for Del Monte orange juice in my former years but then  I began living in Bangkok. I saw people living in the shadow of their desire to be fair. Yes you read correctly, fair! This made me reflect on my own situation and I have learnt to abandon the bottle (of self tan) and  embrace wearing a range of colours instead.   I let go of  those light colours, which usually made me look like I was wearing a morph suit from afar.  I'm now saving pastels for Halloween.  I began to contrast accessories and clothing against my skin. Fair skin allows you to be more playful with bold colours, especially  this summer. See how these stylish street side strangers did it.
