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.

Turkey, dressing, gravy, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie anyway.... I Gobble-Gobbled it all down!

I wish someone told me my lipstick had worn down... the "chola lips" are entirely accidental!

The strategic dressing comes from two incontrovertible facts:

1. A four-hour drive to the in-laws' mountaintop fortress.

2. Mother-in-law doesn't accept "I'm full" as a correct response to anything. Ever.

A maternity-like top with adjustible tie in the back is handy to permit maximum gluttony while giving the illusion I still care about my appearance.

The true secret weapon is these high-waisted "I give up" pants I bought in a fit of depression, but kept for such occasions as "Glutton-Fest 2010". They are some gawd-awful stretchy crepe, and the elastic waist comes up almost to my braline, but not quite. My gut can expand freely in these suckers, which is why they only come out on special occasions!

Between this necklace (that I was looking for last week for another outfit) and my big flower earrings, which I can't seem to find the photo of...

The illusion of concern for my appearance on a feast day is complete.

  1. I'm glad you had a good Thanksgiving. Those pants are genius... desperate times call for elastic waistlines. You look awesome!

  2. As a foodie, I also have "eating pants" with an expandable waistband. Tools of the trade. :)

    I have the opposite problem. I used to be an accountant and now am a stay at home mom. barely get out to places other than the grocery store, post office, church... so no motivation to dress up. thus my blog was born :)
