Shirt: Banana Republic
Shoes: Cole Haan
An exception to my own "Never shop at Banana Republic" rule: men's clothes. This is a man's shirt, albeit a small-sized one, and it's pretty cool (sort of a 1970's green).
To go with, peridot earrings I made last year.
I finished the last tracking screen today; the works is in test. Hm. I ran through them all using production data. So far it's okay, but of course you want the staff to test them. Software testers are more valuable than gold.
Should I tell my co-worker I finished the tracking screens? lol Or should I pretend to continue working on them... I finished them early, because I can do that. I'm capable of working like two or three people...both of us are, we had to do that for about a year. (I'm just joking, I already told him.)
And now, some worthy blogger reads:
Misc.: The great pantyhose debate? Not quite...
Jojoba has a lovely makeup blog—it's the only one I read with any regularity, it's that good—perhaps it seems a bit cheesy to link to one of her non-cosmetic-related posts. But it was so funny.
At first I thought, eh, these Aussies make my life seem dull and boring. Then I realized she must refer to what we'd call "leggings" over here, only an, uh, Australian version.
23 September 2010 – Jackie O?
On a more serious note (hard to get less serious haha), I rather enjoyed this thoughtful post on academichic.
I suppose I'm fortunate, since there's a dearth of female programmers at Berkeley. No one has a clue what we're supposed to wear, so I get to wear whatever I want to, pretty much. Programmers generally are shy, but civilized and nice to be around, so again I feel lucky.
But I like to think of the "new" female workforce as fashion pioneers. Our news media seldom mention there are now more women than men in the U.S. paid workforce, but hey, these women have to wear something! More integration into the workforce should mean expansion of wardrobe norms.
