From Without A Compass:
“We come in many different shapes and sizes, and we need to support each other and our differences. Our beauty is in our differences.” -Carre Otis
The people of Colombia are beauitiful. To name a few famous beauties: Shakira, Sofía Vergara and Nina Garcia. Something about the mix of race and cultures which have colided here in Colombia gives the people here a delicious caramel skin tone, athletic and curvaceous bodies, and exotic features. It can be a little discouraging for the pale, boring, european looking types like me (not to worry I am fine with how I look, just wishing I could get a tan a little more easily.)
However, the people here are as diverse as the landscape. There are dark skinned and light skinned people, curly haired and straight haired people, girls with full soft bellies and girls with ity-bity little waists, men who are tall and thin and those who are big and beefy. So you get my point… the people here come in all sizes and shapes.
What cracks me up is when you peer in the shop windows, you won’t see just small waify manakins like in the U.S… you’ll see men with facial hair and toupee’s, you’ll see manikins for larger women, and my favorite… is the triple DDD manikin!
Maybe not everyone thinks this is funny as I do… this actually a way better model than the stick thin manakins at Bloomingdales. I just can’t help but to laugh out loud everytime I turn the corner and see triple DDD Barbie trying to sell me the latest sundress. Gotta love Colombia.
