DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.

Snap it up!

Another example of snaps curing a problem.... Before:

Take a good look at the button placket, I know the print is distracting:

My handiwork:

Of course, the bottom snap at the tummy pooch was useless. I pinned that sucker as soon as I got to my stash in my desk! The others held up well, though.

I just love v-neck buttondowns for showing my necklaces! Not that it shows much of this one:

A detail I just love on this top is the little buckles on the sleeves:

And my go-to glass teardrops set off the glass-beaded collar beautifully.

Top: Alfani from Macy's
Pants: Lane Bryant
Necklace: another find from the JC Penney doorbusters sale
Earrings: Corning Museum of Glass


  1. Love the necklace as cleavage cover!

    Are you giving up on bangs?

  2. I haven't had bangs in five years....

  3. Great job sewing - looks perfect! I thought the necklace was a tee at first...ha! so cool. You look great... even in the last posts' sweat shirt.

  4. Nice sewing fix. I gotta learn how to do that.

  5. I like that necklace! Good job on the snaps.
