'Vain trifles as they seem, clothes have, they say, more important offices than to merely keep us warm. They change our view of the world and the world's view of us.' - Virginia Woolf
It was circa 1997 on a weekday morning at the Westminster Municipal Court. I was a deputy district attorney (DDA) handling misdemeanor trials and working towards my first significant career milestone – making it to “felony panel,” the general felony assignment at the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. I was working in the office on filing custody cases for the week and I was at the bottom of the trial rotation list. In my mind there was NO way I would be going to trial that week and, for comfort’s sake, I was wearing a pantsuit in lieu of my court uniform of a suit with a skirt, blouse, stockings and pumps.
So you might imagine my surprise when my colleague running the trial calendar paged me (yes, we only had pagers back then) to her courtroom. Once there, she informed me that for a variety of reasons, since faded from memory, I was assigned to take out the next trial – a domestic violence case, with jury selection scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. I still remember my feeling of panic.
