Law and Order

* Ring – Forever 21 *
I know you guys are wondering why this post is called Law and Order…well I had a court hearing today and I wanted to be a little dressy.  However, upon my arrival I noticed that no one really dresses up for court anymore…even the judge was casual under her robe (I saw her outfit before she put her robe on).  Well I have never been one to to do what others do soooooo I was over dressed, lol.  Plus the hearing was with my ex-husband and of course I needed to show him that I am still fine and fancy without him. 
As soon as I saw this top on NY&Co. I knew it would be mines!  However, I am barginista and I was not feeling the price at all so I decided to wait until it went on sale, or wait until I had a coupon.  To my surprise I was able to pick it up at the NY&Co. outlet for 50% off this weekend, score! Good deals make me happy, lol.  I can wait to wear this top again maybe with some cropped pants next time. 
Oh and the judgement went in my favor, such a blessing and weight lifted off of me.

    Love the cut of that top. So flattering! And congrats on a good outcome at your hearing!

  • oh yeah! never pay full price at NY&Co.  they have too many clearance-like sales on in-season items even in the regular stores!

    You look great!

  • You look great and I am sure he noticed lol, love the shoes!!   And it's awesome that the judgement was in your favor!!

    I have had my share of court hearing this year and you're right – no one dresses up for court. I love your outfit. It's so work chic. This reminds me, I need to work on my arms before spring, so I can sport sleeveless with confidence. I'm happy that everything went in your favor.

  • I am a family law paralegal and an ex-wife, so I am at the Court frequently and I am shocked at how people dress for Court these days.  Some people really have no shame in what they wear to Court.  I actually did a post about it several months ago.  It is a shame.  I think your outfit is perfect for Court and I bet you had your ex kicking himself.  You look great!

  • LOVE that peplum top! It is soooooo flattering on your little tiny waist! So cute!

    Whew for winning! I love the black and white. You look like a killer lawyer but im certain the ex-hubby saw sexy, sophisticated and stylish (wink). The top is gorgeous (:

  • You look very professional and classy. Perfect for court. So glad that everything worked out in your favor. God is good! Kiah

  • Very cute! I love NY&Co by the way. I would say about 75% of my wardrobe comes from them. This was a perfect outfit for court. And who cares if no one else dressed up….do you!

  • Patience

    Very elegant. Love that peplum top.

    You did a good job with the eyes.  I am just starting to get into the eye shadow application as well.  I like the blazer that you wore to the brunch!

    I felt the same way about that white peplum ponte top. I HAD to have it. Matter of fact, I had to have the red one AND the white one. Such a classic silhouette. You look haute!
