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.

Kiss me, baby!

An altogether stressful Monday, but at least I got to break out another scarf!



I'm not sure why the full-body shots are so fuzzy... *sigh*. Bad angle, bad hair day... at least my pants are looser!

Der Kuss (The Kiss) by Gustav Klimt... because I'm a complete nerd and I always looooooved this painting:



I couldn't bear to hide too much of the painting printed on by tying elaborate knots, so I tied it like a man's tie:



I don't think it showed as much of the picture as I had in mind... but would that have been too dorky anyway?

I debated the earring choice today- is picking up the brown and blue in the scarf with the earrings, then the red with the jacket too much... too cutsey?



Sweater: one of the Liz Claiborne brands (I cut the tag out) via consignment shop
Jacket: VanHusen outlet
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Bass fuglys
Earrings: made by Baby Sis
Scarf: purchased in a souvenier shop in Vienna

  1. That's a gorgeous scarf. I understand why you want to show off the design.

    I have that painting-image on a coffee-mug. Very beautiful.

  4. I will shop my basement first, but will probably need to go pants-shopping soon.

    Maybe I should wait until I am assured I can go out for a few stiff drinks after the always-traumatic experience of pants-shopping!
