Business Casual Superstar #505: I Need These For Court, Obviously

Guys. You guys. Seriously. Take a look at these earrings. You guys, I am seriously. :|   Seriously, how awesome are these earrings?! They’re daggers, with a red Swarovski crystal. Obviously, I need these earrings to wear to court. OBVIOUSLY. (I wonder if I could get away with it, though. Hahaha.) But on a more […]

Comparing white gemstones

So, who’s wanted to know more about diamonds and comparable white gemstones? And not about conflict diamonds – although it’s important to know about that as well, and there are plenty of good sources that don’t involve Leo DiCaprio with a bad accent, preening for an Oscar – but about the actual composition of the […]

Business Casual Superstar #501: Snag the awesome pumps First Lady Michelle Obama wore during the 2012 DNC!

Yup, you heard me right. When Obama gave his first State of the Union address, I did a BCS post about Michelle Obama’s outfit. I wouldn’t click it; it’s not that great a post. I stuck to the general look of the outfit, rather than the style, because online retailers were NOT cooperating with me […]

Business Casual Superstar #499: Backpacks Galore for Back-To-School Craziness

The backpack I put up for Amy was quite a hit – but some of you weren’t huge fans of the price tag. I don’t blame you. Personally, I wouldn’t spend $100 on a backpack. Well, probably not. When I buy things, I always ask myself how much the item itself is REALLY worth, and […]

Business Casual Superstar #498: A Back and Forth Backpack!

I got an email the other day asking me to recommend a pretty backpack that wasn’t too fifteen-year-old boy-ish, and no Dora the Explorer, please. Basically, Amy wanted a backpack that she could use to carry a few folders/envelopes with her contracts and other documents, along with some snacks-on-the-go for her kids, and maybe a […]

Sunglasses!

I wear glasses every waking moment, and basically the only chance I get to wear sunglasses are if I’m wearing my contacts (which is rarely). I don’t know, buying prescription sunglasses is expensive and remembering to have another set on me and switching them out with my normal glasses is just a pain, so I […]

Business Casual Superstar #495: Bright, Colorful Pumps Under $50!

So, let’s get the backstory straight. I was hanging out with my Life Coach, Jen. Jen is actually not my life coach, but she insists on being called that. She’s a couple years older than me, and used to teach at the small Islamic school I went to. In fact, she was my little brother’s […]

Business Casual Superstar #484: Earrings, Earrings, Earrings!

Whenever I wear my hair either fully up or half-up, I always grab a pair of earrings. If I know I’m headed to a rather formal setting (more emphasis on business rather than casual) I’ll go with something small and short, something that barely hangs a half inch off my earlobe. If I’m headed to […]

Business Casual Superstar #470: Warm Fall/Winter Boots

I live in Chicago, folks, and it gets COLD here. Cold as a witch’s tit in a brass bra. (Hahaha, I just wanted to be able to use that phrase. Isn’t it weird and hilarious?!) Anyway, during three years of law school, I had to walk a little less than a mile from the train […]
