This outfit is more or less what I wore to the interview for this job. Just replace the tights with nude pantyhose and the boots with modest nude-colored Kate Middleton-esque heels. I adore this dress. I ran into a teacher after school had ended while wearing this little number and he told me I looked “too professional and pretty” to work at my law firm. He was only kidding around. He’s a prosecutor and we’re a criminal defense firm. He and my bosses get along fabulously and he was by FAR my favorite teacher. His sense of humor is dry, a little morbid, and sarcastic. Just like me! Angel

Dress: Fred Meyer | Tights: Calvin Klein | Jacket: American Rag, both from Macy’s | Boots: Overstock.com

That was supposed to be my “angry fake model” expression. It looks more like I wasn’t ready for the picture, but I still like the photo.

Now, these boots. I made an extra effort to get these boots into the picture. Not really my favorite. When I purchased them online, I thought they’d be sturdier and more attractive. But they make great winter boots anyway. My favorite part about them is that when I walk, they make a soft padding sound instead of a click-clack. I love the click-clack too, but sometimes a girl wants to be stealthy!

As for this last photo. Well, I wanted to do a pose I hadn’t done before. Ever. But the point of the outfit is that it’s relatively warm in the winter. The tights are a little thin, but they protect against the wind. The jacket is also a little light, but helps seal in some heat. The dress is very, very thick and warm. Overall, the outfit is a little too black-and-grey for my taste. I feel comfortable and pretty in it, anyway. And I think it had the desired professional-looking effect I was looking for the first time I wore it. After all, I landed the job!
