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.

Newspaper day

Black, white, and red all over! I've paid attention to requests for color to be paired with this jacket:

And that's the best I could figure out so far... at least that will keep me warm enough. Just pulled it out of my Space Bag of "stuff that now fits" over the weekend. I'm a little unsure about the cable-knit with the check pattern, though.

I did see a plain red turtleneck sweater at the VanHusen outlet that might go a bit better... or does this sweater work? Now that I think about it... I might have to get it anyway, so I can wear my old Soviet Lenin pin in the cowl. That would be hilarious in this conservative area!

I haven't worn these earrings in forever... I found them while unpacking awhile back. Are these OK for work, or are they too cheap-looking?

It's a non-Court day, so I decided I would experiment today rather than embarass myself in front of the judges (again). So I only potentially embarass myself in front of coworkers, and in front of clients that often don't know the difference, anyway.

Sweater: VanHusen outlet
Jacket: Talbot's
Pants: Lane Bryant
Earrings: I forgot. They were part of a cheap set, and I bought them in the nineties.


  1. The cable is fine - it's a texture, not a pattern, and it doesn't clash!

    I think especially with long hair worn down, that you can get away with a lot in terms of earrings.

  2. Perfect. Just the right touch of pizzazz.

  3. I really like the red sweater with that looks soooo good on you. Go and buy the red turtle neck!!! It will look good with all your jackets.
    I like the earrings...but I think you're right... not for court.
    I love the colour of your lipstick... do you mind if I ask what colour and make it is?

  4. Dee- it's Revlon "Just Bitten" lipstain, the color is "Forbidden". I then put on a coat of Covergirl "Shineblast" lipgloss. I can't find a color name, but "9334" is stamped on the sticker.
