The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
I’ve been working on my post for Sheila at Style Agent 909’s virtual Clothing Swap Party, and realized I have a lot of heirloom and antique brooches I’m not wearing, as well as a lot of scarves that aren’t seeing much action either.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure where to pin my brooches. I always think I look like a flight attendant when I put them on jacket lapels. But when I saw Catherine wearing a brooch and scarf as a sort of a necklace,
the urge to be a copycat inspiration struck.
I bet I haven’t worn this Anne Klein lion pin from the late 80s or early 90s in 20 years. Looking up old Anne Klein lion jewelry on eBay and Etsy was a cool trip down career wear memory lane. I so wish I hadn’t given away the Anne Klein lion earrings I owned. But maybe it’s for the best. They were so heavy they made my ears feel like they might fall off.
To be honest, I’m kind of Catherine’s fangirl. Because of her, I paint my nails in colors I would never have tried (ever) and joyously pile on the Arm Candy. Which is actually handy when dealing with cranky babies. You see more of those than you’d think in a law office.
Are you wearing anything now you wouldn’t have worn a year ago, because of your favorite style bloggers?
