The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
My absolute favorite Corporette feature is the “Suit of the Week”, not intended to be an interview suit but “a slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.” This week it’s a Theory tweed suit with a price tag close to $600.00, even before taxes and shipping. While it is a lovely and classic item, it didn’t seem to go over well with some readers, who complained about the lack of the skirt lining and the fact that it’s not offered in a size larger than 12.
Let’s face it, when I buy a suit, it not only has to not cost $600.00, but it has to appear in a lot of venues, from committee meetings to job interviews to court hearings – or even funerals – at the drop of a hat. I don’t normally wear tweed, because it makes me feel itchy by association, but I found a JonesWear (subtle) tweed pantsuit offered by JCPenney, normally $225.00 but on sale for $89.99. No, the pants aren’t lined, as many suits in the lower price ranges aren’t nowadays, but it is offered in sizes 6-18. And you know how I feel about paralegals wearing pantsuits to the courthouse.

What does your favorite tote say about you? If you’ll send me a picture and a brief blurb about why it suits you perfectly, I’ll include it in a future post!
