You're in a meeting with the big brass, and are struck first by the fact that you're one of the only two non-managers there. Then you're struck by the fact that you're the only woman in the room. Then you're struck by the fact that everyone in the room, including the VP, is wearing casual shirts unbuttoned at the neck. Except you, as the woman, who are wearing a silk shirt with an expertly-tied man's designer necktie.
In my own way, my dress is as non-average as the laid-back California style.
