Labels Aren’t Always Inside the Clothes

I was talking with a colleague about how much I detested “dressing up” for closings. Though I reserve my old suits and pearls for only the most select closings (based on things other than clients, mind you), it’s still an effort to look professional and polished.

She agreed with me, before elaborating, “I hated having to buy something fashionable for my last closing. I paid $400 for an outfit that I may never wear again.”

 Why’d she spend so much on closing attire? “Oh, I had to. My clients are gay and the gays really know fashion.” I took a long pause before slowly saying, “That’s the kind of stereotype some in our Bar Association sue to stop. It’s wrong to label like that!”

She nodded and smiled, so I thought she was about to explain how I’d misinterpreted what she had to say. But then she added a kicker. “You’re so right. I wouldn’t get a new hairstyle just to represent a salon owner.”

Lord, I hope she sees the error of her ways, sooner than later.
