Paralegal Career Dressing: Visible Monday Is a Brazen Hussy

I titled this post partly to screw with Google’s search engine results, and partly because I perhaps over-washed the gray out of my hair last night. In fact, I may have scared it away permanently. The color on the box said something like “Prim Auburn Suitable for Work” – but turned out to be way more “Ye Gads Ye Brazen Hussy.”  But I would have been even more wonderfully brazen if I had an awesome leather skirt like the gorgeous Patti over at Not Yet Dead Style.

But I like the hair color. To be honest, if I worked from home, my hair would be purple.

So I’m still having trouble styling this bright green thrifted skirt. Probably because for the past several decades, I’ve worn mostly black skirts. And black everything else. I also never shop in Chico’s, well, because peeps that buy mostly black clothes wouldn’t, and I get a little over-stimulated by Chico’s colorful prints. But when I saw this Chico’s blouse in a local thrift store, I thought it might be what my it-ain’t-easy-being-so-green skirt needs.

Chico’s blouse (thrifted); Banana Republic skirt (thrifted); Tights (likely Walmart); Shooties (Ross @$14); Pendant (Charlotte Russe a coupla years ago); Stetch rhinestone bangles (old)
Yep, that skirt really is that green.
Last night’s Oscars reminded me of this skirt and my sad one-eyed office frog.
He’s not really that sad.
Someone send me an eye.
When you take your own pics, things turn inside out and no one tells you.

What do you do with your gray hair? Wear it proudly, or put it off for a few more years?
