I started working on the 8th of October 2012. I remember choosing a suit, I remember my first day at work. I was 22, only 4 months after graduation. Before I came to Japan I had multiple piercings and blue hair, which naturally, I had to give up on. The dress code of my company clearly states:
Women are expected to wear a dark suit (matching jacket and skirt/trousers) with a pressed collared business shirt/blouse. Any jewelry worn should be understated. Hair should be tidy. Earrings anywhere other than the ears are not acceptable. Similarly, visible tattoos are not acceptable.
It’s the 16th of October as I’m adding this post and so guess what! This time tomorrow I will be in Korea, where I’ll spend eight awesome days traveling in Seoul and Jeju. It will be the first time since October 2012 that I won’t have to wear a suit for eight full days! You see it guys? E i g h t days! I guess it makes me more excited than it should, but I can’t help it (I had my wardrobe for Korea sorted a month ago already, that’s how completely excited I am to wear normal clothes). I will sure have a lot to post next month, but meanwhile check out my 6 rather reasonably priced outfits for September.

A small announcement!
Maybe some of you remember I’ve mentioned a few times that I’d like to hold a giveaway for my readers, just to say thank you to all of you guys. I started blogging 5 months ago and I have received so many positive comments, thanks so much! All I’d like you to do is to like my FB page (that way I’ll know you really are following my blog and you’re not participating in the giveaway only for the noms) and answer this very difficult question: When did I come to Japan? You don’t need to share any photos on your timeline, just comment under the photo on my FB profile or send me a private message with the answer. You have time until the 24th of October, that’s when I’ll be back from Korea.
And this is what one lucky winner will get their hands on!
