On several occasions in the past, I’ve been asked…”Don’t you want to be a flight attendant?” In all honesty, I am surprised because I really see flight stewardess as tall and beautiful and just chica! I know I wouldn’t pass with my swimming skills and 125/125 vision.

When I started to discover my passion for travelling, I began to realize that being a flight stewardess is not really that glamorous. I mean, I do not see myself serving coffee or tea to passengers nor help in keeping those overweight hand-carry luggage in the overhead storage. But the perks of going to different places for free, I would love that.

Forget about the kind of work they do but the one thing that makes them look glamorous is their uniforms, right? Let’s take a look at how this chic uniform has evolved.

If I am to design a flight stewardess’ uniform, I will make one that is so-comfy feels like you are in your jammies.

PS. – One day more! I’ll be in Singapore…and Im flying with one of my favorite airlines, Qatar Airways. The good thing is, Im flying free. So save up your miles. Bye!
