The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
One of my supervising attorneys, Helen Parsonage, is making a name for herself as a highly successful trial and immigration attorney, most recently making the news for saving a man from deportation, and highlighting the issue of whether a married gay couple should have the same rights as a married straight couple. Helen fights for the underdog every day, and I’m extremely proud to provide litigation support as her paralegal.
Helen is also a very stylish professional woman, as is the newest member of our firm, attorney Alice Chen Anderson. When I saw Helen’s new super slim pants from the Loft Outlet and Alice’s beautiful suede coat today, I begged to photograph them for the ol’ budget career wear blog, and they kindly acquiesced.
Two things you need to know about these pictures: 1) we were talking about work matters the entire time, and 2) the office was freezing today. Alice was wearing her coat pretty much as a suit. The temperatures in this part of the southern USA plummeted from in the 80s every day last week to a high in the 50s today, with the awful oily, chilly drizzle that makes you want your jammies (the ones with the footies), hot cocoa, and a good book – at home.
I was also on the telephone for work when I grabbed my outfit shots. I’m modeling the headset I use everyday, so y’all can see the hair challenge. Yes, I have gotten it tangled in my hair and had to rip it out.
Look for my scintillating post later this week, sharing the middle-aged reasons I had to purge most of my career shoes this weekend for, well, what my stylish shoe fancier friends would likely call, gulp, orthopaedic shoes, more or less.
