Like a scene in a movie, Nicole Schiavo walked out of the beautiful new Four Seasons Hotel in Harbor East to pick up her car from the valet. Looking very chic and Hollywood in her over-sized shades and 5-inch heels, she put one very ladylike leg in, then the other. That’s when we glimpsed the red soles. Maybe this was a casting call.
Nicole Schiavo, The Four Seasons, Harbor East
You have such style. What’s your job?
I’m a lawyer in that building across from the hotel.
How would you describe your look for work?
Do you always wear dresses to work?
Lots of dresses and skirt suits. Never pants. I’m 4’10!
So that explains those killer heels. Louboutins, right? Red soles!
Yes. I wear them all the time.
And your dress hits just perfectly at the knee. You are perfectly proportioned!
Thank you. I hem everything I wear: to the middle of the knee for work and really short for the weekend!
Does your height make a difference in the workplace?
I’m a lender liability litigator. People underestimate me all the time ’cause I’m little.
You go girl.
