Everywhere I look, I’m reading about how “pale is in.” (Do we have Twilight to thank for this?!)
I know first hand how damaging tanning in the sun can be and I have been pleasantly surprised by the number of pale models used in advertising campaigns this summer.
Alice & Olivia
But what about in the real world? I do not see pale girls. Ever. (Unless they’re tourists walking around the mall from Europe.) I don’t know if I’m not noticing pale girls, or if it’s because I’m in Florida… but I don’t see any!!!
Not only that, but I feel like most clothes are not made for pale girls. White eyelet dresses? I love them, but I look beyond washed out. Cute white shorts? Notsocute with ghostly legs. Little black dresses? Big no, no. Nude shoes? Can’t even SEE the shoes.
What’s a girl to do?
I’m definitely protecting my skin as best as I can. Lots of SPF, using bronzer instead of tanning, hats to protect my face, hiding under umbrellas at the beach, etc.
But, it’s still frustrating!
What’s your take?
