Carolyn Zinko, SF Chronicle talks about the changes in Silicon Valley over the past few decades. I can testify that power suits were the standard. I loved wearing Chanel myself, because no one even recognized them in those days. Still, for this month's article in the San Francisco Chronicle by Zinko, some Silicon Valley women didn't want to be quoted talking about clothes. Another said do your job and it would not matter what you wear.
Are we seriously talking like this? Seems like it does matter what we wear. It does mean a lot to our selves and to others. Suppose we look at it another way. Suppose we ask ourselves seriously - what are we preparing for on the inside? Does our clothing truly match where we think we are and where we want to go? If the answer is yes, then I'd want to talk a lot about it. Talking about my destination will get me there, because I believe I'll be convincing.
Thanks Carolyn Zinko. Here is her article in SF GATE http://www.sfgate.com/default/article/Women-are-hacking-the-tech-dress-code-5411791.php
