"... Being moody means you're tuned in to you feelings, or in other words, you have great intuition. If you'll listen to it..."

Of course as long as it is below a certain threshold which separates it from the disorder, it actually can be strength.

Sad but true.
It is proudly stated in most of our industry (at least in the Valley) that we don't need people to dress seriously to take them serious. Sadly looks like it works only one way.

For my case I am wearing my dresses and/or heels to work at least one day a week. Definitely increased flashiness and seriousness over time. People know me are definitely not surprised anymore. And for those that don't know, I take it as a chance to start a conversation :)

Though it is true that this is a safe environment and I don't rely on peoples first impressions. Things are harder when presenting at a conference. And not sure what would be my choice of dress if I were to interview these days..
