WOMEN IN POWER

There comes a time when every single one of us stop for a moment and wonder... Who we really are, how do we look from aside, have accomplished enough till now and generally what do we represent as women to the outer world ...  And most of us including my self never see the end of it... I think I never had that moment where I thought my life is complete - and that I have accomplished enough... never. There is always space and place to grow, there are always new ways to improve and there is enough time to leave at least a small mark in this world. And keeping this in mind we can never give up and be happy with what we have now, we always have to want more in order to move forward and make a statement.
I believe most of You already sensed that this article is for You - for all the strong women that fight day to day to to achieve and to receive and generally how this state of mind and lifestyle affects our image.
Lets go back to our beloved 80s... Don't know about You but for me everything that speaks for 80s is something to admire... the music, the fashion, the art... I could go on and on. Its simply the decade of perfection. And never the less the decade of women in power. Generally speaking I would say its the decade where women felt free to wear what they like despite the norms and started the movement of genderless wardrobe. Of course in small steps at a time. As we know it was at the 80s when women entered the workforce in sheer force, and with it came a very aggressive idea of power dressing. Thanks to them we got the wide shoulders , the structural shapes and most of all a lot thinner line between men and women styles. Women in the work force were popularizing the idea of “power dressing” summarizing the fashion of the decade and the modern-woman’s desire to break free from traditional gender roles and make their mark in the business world. 
While we can not be grateful enough for the women of 80s it seems that we keep up the good work in a lot fiercer way nowadays as well. Not only do we keep our ground strong and firm - we continue to spread the strong woman image in a lot simpler times. Im sure You will agree with me that fashion today is harder to define than ever, with a sense of individuality and self-expression.  Women are looking to embrace their femininity while also incorporating traditionally masculine-styles into their wardrobes. Fashion seems to be in a state of constant growth and exploration, while nods to past decades continuously find themselves embedded in every season’s “trends. "
Meaning we are left without any concrete trends or fashion statements, but the freedom to dress to express - our selves, our lifestyles, our believes through fashion. Tell me if I'm wrong but that seems to be the best stage we could have ever dreamed of.
Moving on to the outfit that Im wearing... Caught by the mood of feminity and power, in the best place for that in the world, inspired by all the career woman surrounding me, I wanted to mix and match 80s with nowadays. And honestly I was smart enough to take  Renata Mikailionyte's pieces in my luggage that spoke the topic better than anything else. A short moment  about the designer so that You would get the idea  - RM creates thin lined gender clothes for women that fear nothing, at least that was my first expression when I saw her collection. As You can see the west gives a sharp manly image to the whole outfit, especially matched with classic shaped pants with a typical 80s print, so that You can easily state that this is a typical classic look, yet matched with expressive bag and military boots it gets to a completely new modern classic look. 
To sum up we live in the times that give no rules, no boundaries. We have all the rights and all the freedom to do or to look as we wish. Lets not only be glad about it but lets make the best of it.
