Opening thoughts

At 28, I realized I wasn't in the right place. All of my life decisions were supposedly correct, but not really, otherwise - why was I so damn bored?
I've always been good in math, a quality that led me to serve in a computer unit in the army, to study industrial engineering and to work at a high-tech company and earn well. I hated the army, the university was alright but never too exciting and work, well work gave me freedom to buy a lot of clothes, so all in all I wasn't complaining. But still, throughout everything, eventually, one feeling always arose – I don't belong, this is not where I'm supposed to be, this couldn't be it, this couldn't be life.
One passion has led my life since childhood. FASHION. When I was 10 I moved with my family to Berlin and there I was exposed to fashion for the first time in my life (Israel in the early 90s wasn't much of a fashion kingdom to say the least). Ever since, I've been collecting clothes and obsessing over my outfits each day. There is nothing I like more than getting dressed.
At the beginning of 2011 I started a styling course at Shenkar College and for the first time I started to realize I can actually work in fashion and turn my passion into my life work. Each day that passed since strengthened that feeling until finally I quit my job and decided to go at it 100%.
So here I am, very excited and not the least bit bored. This blog is meant to be a sketchbook of my thoughts, experiences, work and recommendations, all (of-course) fashion related.
I'm Tom – and I'm a girl (thank god!)
