Paralegal Career Dressing: A Prissy Punk

Paralegal Career Dressing: A Prissy Punk

I scored this Elle jacket from a Kohl’s clearance rack for $10 TWO YEARS ago, and have never worn it. I think I thought it would go with a lot of outfits, but every time I put it on, I got the bleecccchs and put it back in the closet. Since I only have the one tiny closet, it’s not like it’s full of stuff I never wear.

So I’m wearing it for the first time, and wondering, should I keep it? Also, note I’m wearing tights I thought matched my shirt when I got dressed in the semi-dark while Dear Hubby was still sleeping. Obviously, they don’t. But, hey, Stacy and Clinton say you’re not supposed to be too matchy-matchy.

I cut off my feet in all the pics, dang it. Elle jacket (Kohl’s clearance); Skirt (Loft 50% sale); Long-sleeved tee (Target); T-strap heels (Ross Dress for Less clearance); Tights (Target); Earrings (forgot)
The details. Shiny. Ruffly. Long strings to yank.

Seriously, do you have anything in your closet that’s been there for more than a year and never worn?

  1. I think the more tailored styles suit you better. For instance, the gray high-waisted Target skirt with gray belt from a few days ago looked fabulous. You've got a great waistline and this jacket doesn't show it off.

  2. Thanks, Louise, I really appreciate both the readership AND the comment 🙂 I always think I don't have a waist, but you're right, this jacket just hasn't worked for me – yet. I'm giving it one more shot with a longer shirt and slacks, and then if I still look like an Oompa Loompa, it's off to the GoodWill!

  3. P.S. Louise, I checked out the style blogs you follow, and added some I wasn't already following to my RSS feed reader. Great recommendations! I love seeing wonderful peeps of a certain age rocking their style 😀
