The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while have probably figured out I struggle with purchasing and wearing colors. But when I picked the Carolyn Karina dress (just dreaming a bit) to participate in Already Pretty’s giveaway, I purposely picked one I thought would really liven up my career wardrobe.

I don’t have much bright coral in my closet, but then I remembered I’m Queen of the $10 Red Dot Clearance Rack dress from Steinmart, and that I picked up a Maggy L faux wrap dress with some of the same colors earlier this year. Oddly, it is many sizes larger than I normally wear, a 12P, but I could tell just from looking at them that this dress runs so small I couldn’t even get one leg into my usual size. .
I wondered when I got home why there were so many of this style lingering on the clearance rack, and then realized the skirt is asymmetrical. Whoops. No, silly, of course I didn’t try it on. I held the fabric up to my faux red hair and said, “Prettyyyyy.”

It was almost 80 degrees today, so I had to bring out the pale white winter legs. Hence the warning you might need sunglasses. But why hide who I am? I never tan anymore. I wish someone had mentioned sun damage in 1981.

Have you ditched the winter hose yet?
