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].

  • Why the ‘Kyle’ angry white male meme is bad news for Monster Energy
    An internet meme called “Kyle”–which is rising in popularity as a representation of white male aggression–does not bode well for Monster Energy drink, investment banking advisory firm Evercore ISI warned on Friday.

  • Google closes ‘incognito’ loophole, leaving publishers to rethink paywalls
    Google is closing a loophole that revealed when people were browsing in “incognito” mode, but the fix will leave some publishers defenseless against a certain breed of freeloading readers who can now jump their paywalls. By the end of July, Google says it will patch the glitch in its Chrome web browser, which allowed websites to detect when a person was brow […]
  • The surreal, creepy new ‘Cats’ movie obviously needs a John Mulaney rewrite
    So Universal Pictures took to the internet on Thursday to hack up its trailer for the new “Cats” movie like some sort of pre-dinner hairball, and the internet is, um, confused? But definitely not indifferent. On YouTube, the trailer has racked up more than 87,000 thumbs-down (vs. 48,000+ thumbs-up) across more than three million views in less than 24 hours. […]

  • Tiger Woods’ failed Open bid is bad news for NBC
    Three months ago, Tiger Woods clawed out his first major championship win in 11 years, and in so doing, seemed to have put an end to a decade marked by frustration, failure and grievous injury. His triumph in Augusta was an assurance that more Sunday victories would come, and in defying the ravages of time and a rickety spinal column held together with duct […]
