What Not to Wear…Really

What Not to Wear…Really

This post will tie together several recurring themes at Practical Paralegalism:

  1. Paralegals have to embrace the future and become a little geeky – or nerdy – to keep up with today’s ever-changing technology and its effect on the practice of law;
  2. There are some things you can’t wear to work, or on a job interview;
  3. My perfect career dress is modern, has more than a touch of spandex in the weave, is machine-washable and costs under $50; and
  4. When I was in the 6th grade, I was dead set on marrying Mr. Spock when I grew up (oh, have I not mentioned that here before?)

So when my “blog serendipity,” also known as the recommended items feed in my Google Reader included a post from The Gadgeteer, stating that I won’t fear the future while wearing this dress…
…which Think Geek says says is perfect for conventions or just wearing around the house, I thought it was time to emphasize that paralegals can never get this geeky, or wear this outside of the house, even if it is machine washable and only $39.99.But it would have made the perfect wedding dress for the future Mrs. Spock.P.S. The model’s hair totally rocks. I’m going to get big purple streaks in mine just as soon as I figure out how to jumpstart my career as a virtual RV paralegal…

  1. Best Star Trek costume on display at the now-defunct Star Trek: The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton was the Klingon wedding gown worn by Jadzia Dax when she married Worf on ST:DS9. I'll have to see if I have a photo of it.
