Ok so I have mentioned periodically that I work in fashion [at Skinny Latte to be precise] but what I may not have mentioned is the 3 years I spent prior to that obtaining a law degree. Now the time has come to return to education and law school, [as was the intial plan] and I find myself torn.
So guys, I have a decision to make: fashion or law, law or fashion?
To be fair, my interest in the law has not completely diminished but how many people can really say that an average working day consists of checking out magazines, blogs, attending fashion events, writing/editing articles and liasing with PR people? When you compare that to searching through case law and statute for legal precedent, drafting contracts and reading/researching until your eyes bleed...which sounds more appealing?
Perhaps, if in the face of workload that looked like this, the typical outfit of a
lawyer barrister was not a cross between Marie Antoinette and the Amish folk, I would be more inspired to pursue/embrace my super nerdy half and re-love all things lawyer-y??
Who knows? What I DO know is that by the 1st August 2010, I need to have made a decision...fashion or law, law or fashion???
To all the lawyers out there, here is my nugget of wisdom: 'a little tailoring goes a looooooooooong way'
maybe erm with this one...just wear a blouse though??....
