I went window-shopping at lunch time today, and a sales assistant in one of the shops commented on my outfit, and asked if I was going somewhere special. I told her that I was just at work, and she was really surprised, and started asking me about where I worked.
I get this a lot, and people are always surprised to hear that I'm a lawyer. Even though I work as a lawyer, I don't actually work for a law firm as such, and my workplace is much more flexible when it comes to things like this. Nobody there wears suits every day, and a lot of my colleagues even wear jeans for casual Friday (although I don't, as I like to dress up. And I usually end up in court on Fridays, too). I do dress more conservatively when I have to go to meetings, or to court. (Usually I'm putting on my jacket in the elevator on the way to court, while my boss is putting on his tie).
These are my favourite shoes. Most of the shoes I like best are heels, but even though these ones are flat, I think they are perfect. They're more plastic shoes by Melissa, and they're the J.Maskrey Night Sky Edition, covered in Swarovski crystals. I always get a lot of comments on these, and people often say that they're like Cinderalla shoes, or Dorothy shoes.
