While people are scolded in North America for wearing socks and sandals and stirring up much anger among fashionistas, women around Cambodia pull it off quite well. The markets have a variety of colours and designs that comfortable accommodate the sock and sandal look.

Women often wear this and PJs when it’s sunny because they want to protect their skin from becoming darker. It makes me sad that the women here don’t think they’re  natural skin colour is beautiful and people can buy whitening lotion everywhere.

I keep telling them, “In North America, we think dark skin is beautiful, you’re beautiful.” I guess we always like what we don’t have no matter where you are in the world.
