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.

Early application to the Red Hat Society

The 5 lbs. I lost a couple weeks ago came home over the holiday- best to just put me out of my misery:

Damn the stretchy pants!!! Don't panic kids... I was just fooling around a little at the dentist's office this morning. At least the 5 lbs. didn't bring it's friends along this time....

My Kim Kardashian impresssion:

Although it was no fun to wake up to my lip converted to a cold sore factory, that's the only way my lower lip gets that big. It got really unpleasant with the dentist pressing on it while working on my tooth. Rrrr....

Same earrings as yesterday, but I figured they would look nice with this:

I haven't worn this pin in years... it's Peter I of Russia. My phone camera won't focus well enough to show the inscription in Cyrillic below the bust. Drat!

Top: VanHusen outlet
Jacket: VanHusen outlet
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Bass fuglys
Earrings: Lia Sophia
Necklace: part of my haul from a JC Penney doorbusters sale last spring
Pin: prize for one of the few times I did something right in my university Russian courses.


  1. I like the pin. It's very family crest-y and preppy.
    And, good idea (re: comment on my blog) on using the existing buttons on my coat as another project. I'm just not quite ready to part with them... though I fear I will be parting with them one at a time as they fall off and get lost.

  2. You look fantastic. Love that outfit...necklace looks really nice. You still look like you've lost weight...maybe just a temporary "blip" due to water retention after eating turkey ( maybe not scientific but I always gain a bit after eating a meal that includes turkey - but loose it by the end of the week)...don't worry.

  3. Fabulous brooch! It really makes today's outfit. Incidentally, you have wonderful eyes - so clear, and a lovely colour.
