I was also fortunate enough to attend University (first girl in my family to actually complete a degree) and even started my own multiple location business. These things weren't easy and I learnt a lot of things along the way. Each experience, each event, each twisty turn added something to my personality and oddly my sense of style.
I went from geek to sophisticated woman. It wasn't easy and it wasn't even something deliberate but something organic. If I dressed a certain way people spoke to me differently and treated me differently. I learnt quickly that dressing well got you more respect and attention.
