Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by Theanne.

Back home in America, it isn’t much of a problem, but comments like these just irk me beyond belief, that I don’t fall in the standard beauty expectations of Asians, where skin whitening creams are used instead of self-tanners.

The dress is lovely, and I agree with the necklace. Maybe a nice, simple pretty thing to complete the look.
