I work in the legal industry also, but over here it seems it is the men letting the side down in shabby shirts, shoes, and suits that have seen better days! The majority of the women lawyers and staff are very well coutured
I feel overdressed most of the time too, but why not! life's too short to dress like all the other mall bunnies, and its an added bonus to get compliments here and there as well AND have doors held open for you
Today im wearing a grey wiggle dress with cream satin trim, a girdle to tame the wobbly bits, seamed stockings and pearl white ballet flats with little black bows.
ps. For anyone else in NZ/Australia, Portmans have a great selection of cheap & really gorgeous ballet flats at the moment
