Occupation Attorney and owner, Evelyn & Angel’s Candy Shop
Your two jobs are very different. Does that make for an interesting wardrobe?
I like to be elegant when I’m working in the law firm. My wardrobe as a lawyer is like a uniform. But I stay rather conservative and classic at the law firm, especially when I’m going to court. When I’m at the shop or out and about, I like to have fun with my clothing. I like vintage pieces mixed with modern.
Any advice for shopping secondhand?
If it looks right on you and feels right, just go with it.
What about for young lawyers?
Boston is conservative in terms of clothing for our profession. You want to focus on the client and not distract with the clothing.
Is that a fashion faux pas for a lawyer?
It’s not a faux pas if you’re really well-known and it’s in part your personality. Kind of like Hillary Clinton and the red power suit — she can wear a red power suit because she’s Hillary Clinton.
