As I stated in my last post, our firm hosted an evening reception for local North Carolina Advocates for Justice,, members last week, so we all dressed for daytime activities to after-hour wine and hors d’oeuvres, with the wine graciously provided by a terrific new local wine store, The Caviste in Winston-Salem, NC.

I brought out my $5 thrifted sweater and recent purchase from Jada’s Jewels (register here for cool daily emails with great jewelry deals) for the occasion:

Jones New York Dress (Ross @$40); Banana Republic cardigan (thrifted); Black Flats (Ross @$16); Necklace (Jada’s Jewels, $10 including matching earrings)

Panty hose, bleh, but what’s a middle-aged broad to do? (I do love my tights.) As you can tell, I’m a fool for any dress or skirt with pockets. We had a great time at the reception, as you can see from this pic of me with two of the firm’s lawyers:

Helen Parsonage, attorney; Lynne DeVenny, paralegal; Robert “Hoppy” Elliot, attorney

I’m proud to work with a great group of civil rights attorneys, who have taught me a lot over the last 17 years. For more information about the work our firm does, see
