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.

Charity begins at home

I was pressing this blouse for my JL charity shop donations, when I decided I was keeping it after all. Because teaming it with one of my favorite sweaters makes said sweater work-appropriate.

I figured the neckline looks better unbuttoned.

And I've been looking at this necklace lately, wondering when I could somehow work it in:

And I'm feeling so good about this outfit I pulled out my mary janes! This is an older pic, obviously-- I'm not wearing the evil gray tweed pants, but nicer navy ones.

I've been wearing my silver hoops for days, but remembered they don't go with the goldtone in the spacing beads. So a quick change:

Top: Liz Claiborne via consignment shop
Sweater: Macy's INC
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Ariat
Necklace: my friends' business, "Jasper's Den". I paid wholesale
Earrings: JC Penney


  1. I like the print on the blouse, throw back 60s paisley. It looks good, good idea to keep it!

    I have a similar problem when getting items "ready" for donation I change my mind and hold onto them. As a result of this habit I've perfected the art of preparing clothing for donation. It's called toss-it-into-the-bag-as-quickly-as-possible-then-go-drop-it-off. It works most of the time :)

  2. That's a seriously-beautiful sweater, buddy. And the shoes are adorable.

  3. That's an awesome outfit...the sweater with the belt looks great on you...yup keep that shirt for now-
