Alex Raeva, singer and fashion designer

Once a girl friend asked me what makes Bulgarian women different from American.

It’s not about their physique because we have all types: the Mediterranean, with olive skin, light eyes, and dark hair; the Scandinavian type: fair, blue-eyed and blonde; and some with Arabic eyes and black hair. Some are elegant and slender, some are luscious and curvy, and some are plump and delightful.

It’s about the way they carry themselves . A Bulgarian woman never goes out without touching up. It could be as simple as putting on some mascara, straightening or curling her hair, putting on some jewelry, or just a pair of heels.

Kamelia - pop folk singer and model

She doesn’t go out in flip-flops, Crocks, Uggs, sweatpants, or her pajamas (and she always combs her hair!).  She dresses with style. She matches colors and fabrics, and usually chooses the style that flatters her figure, nothing too loose and nothing that looks too tight where it shouldn’t.

The most significant difference in the style is that the Bulgarian always puts a sexy twist on her appearance: emphasized eyes, stilettos, a tightly-fitted top, skinny jeans, a mini skirt, or a low neckline are just some of her little secrets.

The Bulgarian woman is never simply casual, or simply sporty, or simply having a bad day.

She wants to look good for others and for herself.

Notice the EU flag in the distance

Having been in Boston for the past six months, I had almost forgotten this idyllic sight: a gypsy family in a horse cart driving along with cars and public transport on major streets in our beautiful capital. In Bulgarian, a horse cart is called каруца [car-oo-tza].
