The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism

Ever since I saw Tamera Beardsley’s sequined pants and sequined top, I’ve been jonesing for sequins that I could wear to work. Because I’m almost never anywhere else, and every paralegal wants to wear sequins to the law office, right?
Okay, I’m going to admit I might be wrong on that one.
I looked high and low for sequins appropriate for conservative offices, and while I may not have found that, I did score two very different light gold tops with sequins for about $7 each within the space of a week. It took me quite a bit longer to figure out how to wear one of them to work.
A giant strawberry is apparently what I needed to make it work. While The Teen tried on, like 23 dresses in Plato’s Closet for a friend’s Sweet Sixteen party, I was left with no recourse but to madly paw through all the thrifted jewelry. When I spied this strawberry pendent, I knew it was meant to be mine, mine, mine.
Apparently the cashier who checked me out thought it was meant to be hers, hers, hers, because she said, “Oh! I wanted that!” when she rang it up. I felt bad for her, but not bad enough to not purchase it.

My other supervising attorney brought in his growing pup, Rosie, to hang out for a few hours. Naturally, all the girls went gaga over her. I asked when I could bring The Corginator to work, and he said when The Big Boss Who Hates Jeans at Work goes to his annual summer attorney conference. Don’t think I haven’t noted that date on my calendar.

Have you worn sequins to work? How about a giant strawberry?
