Fashionista's vow

What is the most important thing in the up- bringing? No. It’s not about avoiding doing harm or hurting someone’s feelings. The correct answer is : not to catch the inconsistency you are helping another person to get rid off.
You might be interested why I even bother to ask such strange questions. So let me explain.
I kind of sorted out that my so-called little mission is to make IT workers more fashion-educated, give them some glimpse of taste and understanding that wearing smart clothes does not necessarily mean that you are homosexual.
I was so captivated by my strategy that I almost completely forgot that I am actually in danger. When everyone around you pays little attention to their outfit and make up, it becomes harder not to follow their example. 
But thanks God I have caring friends. When I told a friend of mine about the sort of company I was working for she made me swear that whenever I get in the mood of pulling on my old colorless shirt, jeans and leaving my make-up at home,  I should remember her and other friends who love my style and the way I’m dressing up and never ever want to see me that way.
So here I am, ready to stand up for my right to be stylish and eager to bring the light of fashionable education into the intricate minds of IT people.=)

It's been a while

Yes, I know, I promised to myself that I should write here more. But it takes so much effort to choose the most important. The essence of the ideas that roll inside my blond-haired head.
In my previous post I told you about the kind of company I work for. The guys are really nice to me these days. We had a celebration of women's day and I was delievered two perfect enormously huge bunches of flowers. Yellow tulips and purple with pink ones. So lovely, tender and touching. I was so happy!

But as long as I'm writing about my life in connection to fashion I guess I should tell the trick I made that day.

I put on the very unusual as for the IT  people skirt by Mango. It's a feather skirt. A zefir pink one with the black satin belt. I'm absolutely in love with it.<3

I was wearing it with the black blazer and black tights and high heels.No accessories just small diamond stud earrings. And that was something=)) Everyone was impressed. =) Most of the programmers were making laugh of it and comparing it to some chicken halloween costume. But there turned out to be people who really liked it and draw paralles with ballet. The art I was actually inspired by while creating this look. Ballet and the "Run away" full version video by Kanye West.
So there are unexpected fashionistas even among IT crowd=)))
We'll see what's going to be revealed next =)

What I'm involved in

I probably should let you know, how my story began and what I'm involved in now. So here is the short overview of what happened to me before I started this blog :)
It's not that I'm a little girl all by myself in a big alien city. At least I hope so. I can't say that on the day I moved to the capital my whole world turned upside down. It wasn't a rebirth. Just a new episode of my life. A rather strange one, I must confess. Leaving aside all the troubles I faced here, I managed to find a job. And a good one actually. I am working in the IT company. We have a noble mission. We help people with health problems. Even though we make money of it, it's still the work one can be proud of.
The funny thing is that I'm the sixth girl in the office. There are 38 guys and only six girls. And I'm the only faire-haired maid out there. Now you can imagine how it feels in my shoes. No. I bet you can't.
IT-workers are the separate nation. They have their own way of behaving, having fun, dressing.....yes, dressing was the first thing that impressed me the most. But there were a few more 'surprises' yet to come. And I was not ready. No one warned me. I knew that it was a different world, but I never thought it was so another-universe for me.
Shocking? No, rather embarrasing and funny :)
As a fashion magazine journalist (that's a long story and I'll dedicate a separate post to it), the look of sandals on socks and too short sweaters and T-shirts stroke my fashionista's eye. And my ensembles were always carefully prepaired and thought-over. And no one really cared. No one even noticed. All they cared about were their screens and levels they gained in stupid on-line games. And that was the beginning of my IT career. :)
