What Not to Wear

From Slate, Female Lawyers who Dress "Too Sexy" are Apparently a Hugh Problem in the Courtroom.

I can see both sides here.  I'm from the generation that started practice in the ridiculous no pants days.  Ever try lugging a lit bag to court. 9 long city blocks.  In the snow.  Without ripping your hose.  (Still eons before no hose times).  And yet, the law student's 5 inch red stilettos for her on campus interview seemed terribly wrong.
