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.

Election day

No daily shot today-- but I have a substitute further in, so keep reading!

One of the perks of a government job is that I get election day off work. I went to the polls and did my duty, but they didn't give me one of those groovy stickers! I also ran errands and worked out. All in my gym clothes. Yep, I'm a slob today.

I have finally rehabbed enough from my injuries, and am finally well enough to work out again. Yay! Hubby is helping me with training and my diet (he was certified as a personal trainer in college). I think I've knocked off about ten pounds so far, but I won't get into it much because this isn't a weight-loss blog.

But my goal is to get back into this outfit:

Sorry the photo is so tiny, I have no idea why.

I haven't fit into this jacket in a couple years. It's a gorgeous leather, and I bought it in NYC while visiting friends ages ago. I loved wearing it with that turquoise top. The top has been reborn as rags, but I'm sure I can find something similar. And I always felt like a million bucks in those jeans, and can't wait to get them out of storage.

I have no idea who the guy singing with me is. Some random person who wanted to sing a duet.... The image just degraded too much when I tried to crop him out.

Jacket: Filene's Basement (I think...)
Top: Chico's
Jeans: Banana Republic


  1. That jacket is nice enough to aspire to.

  2. I have a ton of gorgeous clothes that just don't fit right now. At least if *when* I DO lose the weight, i won't have to shop too much...

  3. Don't forget, when you get to goal, I still have your Armani dress.

  4. Great jacket. I like the color combo of turquoise and red/ burgundy. Also blue and brown...mmmmm. Did Sis say Armani?? we need to see this dress!
    PS. You look day at a time & it will happen.

  5. I'll do blue and brown this week- I have just the thing!

    I also like red and brown... like a cherry on a hot fudge sundae....

  6. I keep a few of these back-in-the-day-I-could fit-into-this outfits. And, after storing them for 10 years without being able to fit back into them, I'm starting to slowly weed out the ones that are helplessly unstylish. But, the cute ones? I keep those and continue to trya to get back into them!
