The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
A while back I tweeted that I was wearing my $30 thrifted Loft suit, and several peeps demanded, “Pics!” only I was too busy supporting a busy litigation practice to get any. Last Friday wasn’t much better, and the light in my office was especially bad. I’d already been in an hour and a half meeting, addressed a client emergency, and was headed out of the office to drive about an hour and a half to speak at a N.C. Bar Association review course for the N.C. State Bar Certified Paralegal exam.
I was wrinkled and frazzled, but I want to show you that you can get a great deal on a suit with regular thrifting. This suit was 50% off its $60 price tag, and Loft is a brand that fits me well. I love the short jacket, the subtle pin striping, and the comfort. Add a clearance no-iron shirt from Victoria’s Secret and faux pearls and multi-chains from Sears, and I’m ready to hit the road!

|I added the saturation which is why I look green. My sis gave this bag to me for my birthday. It’s great for gadget-toting.|

Have you ever scored a great thrift deal on a suit for the office?
