About me

 Welcome to The Fashion Brief – A Fashion Blog for Working Women

The Fashion Brief work outfits

I’m a big firm attorney living in Dallas, Texas – and I hate dressing like one. Black suits and white button-ups are not what you’ll find on this site.  Rather, (I hope) you’ll find fun and professional work wear and interesting articles about current legal issues that are relevant to influencers and retailers.  I decided to start this blog for two reasons.

The first reason being a selfish one – to learn more about this emerging industry of influencers.  It absolutely fascinates me and I would love to use my legal training to represent influencers, brands, and companies (hey rewardStyle!) in this space.

The second reason I started this blog is to connect with other working women that want to spice up their work wardrobes in a way that makes them feel empowered.

I remember the day I decided I wanted to be an attorney. I wasn’t involved in a serious situation, wasn’t injured, wasn’t discriminated against, wasn’t involved in a business deal gone wrong, nope – none of that.  I was at Nordstrom…

I broke my arm when I was 6, and after that I always wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon. I was finishing up my freshman year of college at the University of Texas (HOOK ‘EM!) and I was just bored in science classes. I was at Nordstrom picking something up, and there it was, the most beautiful blazer and skirt I had ever laid my eyes on up to that point. At that moment, I decided I wanted to trade a lifetime of scrubs for a lifetime of dresses, skirts, and blazers that would perfectly capture my strong-willed, hard-working, go-getter (and fun!) personality and my mood that day.

Hopefully this fashion blog will inspire you guys to be more creative and adventurous with your “work clothes” and bring a little bit of style into the courtroom, conference room, classroom, or wherever you spend 40+ hours/week.  Maybe it will even help a few of you decide on your profession. 😉
