The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Or, That’s a Big Fat Lie. It’s Really “Bags Under Eyes So Big Gotta Wear Shades”
I’ve been carefully studying my fave style bloggers, and I’ve noticed that many, although certainly not all, are mostly photographed wearing sunglasses.
I thought it was ’cause sunglasses make peeps look badass.
Then I realized that sunglasses hide a lot of imperfections revealed by plain ol’ broad daylight, which is also the best setting for outfit pics.
This morning I had a headache so big to match the bags under my eyes that I couldn’t even take pleasure in my edgier haircut. I was not all that and a bag o’ chips, but more bleeech and a stale Pop Tart.
I also wore skinny jeans to the law office, although so many peeps had taken the extra day off before the long holiday weekend, I should’ve gotten my name on the letterhead (with my paralegal job title noted of course) and a company car just for showing up.
I dug an Ann Taylor blazer from the early 90s out of my maybe GoodWill pile ’cause even in a petite it’s huge, as was the style back in th’ day, and a long tee-shirt, to make sure that my skinny jeans weren’t lookin’ too fly for work, if ya know what I mean. (If you don’t, it means my junk in the trunk was all covered up.)
This is what I imagined I looked like, you know in my head, before I saw the actual pics:

Everywhere I go, peeps ask where I got this bag. I didn’t even know how much the Artist Series Saks originally cost until I researched them (many more times than I paid).

Are skinny jeans allowed at your office?
