Best thing about my work is having people who are more tolerant with one’s sense of style. I can go to the office in a plain simple top matching a chino or the usual black navy blue slacks even on flats with no questions asked about the brand or pressure on latest trends. It is totally like morphing in a pool of full pledge straight male that couldn’t care less what they look.
Then comes the time of going overboard – going beyond from the usual look without any apparent reason. No corporate occasions, no special meetings – plainly just for the sake of glamming up and claiming the part that I need to wear a skirt to remind myself that I am still a woman. And the comments you’d ever hear? are “Wows and She has a date after work” punch lines. Personally I find such reactions more gratifying rather than the usual stare and eye rolling.
