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.

Portrait entitled "A Study in Brown"

I've really been getting a little nutty with my art-museum accessories lately! Just normal stuff today, though....

I'm going to miss these pants, but I'm *hoping* I won't be able to wear them much longer!

I know I've talked a lot about my weight this week, but it plummeted by 5 pounds just this week! Unusual for me... my husband asked me this morning if this is a new shirt. "Nope, just fits better now".

I've worn this necklace before with this top, but I think it was B.B. (Before Blog). It is actually two same-length necklaces put together in one long one, to make it look like this:

Instead of this:

A couple weird things about these necklaces:

1. I can't get them wet while wearing, or I get a rash.

2. I think the fasteners look kinda cool, and don't mind if they show.

I have these great plastic hoops that look like wood- but they are in need of repair. So I wore these instead:

I still love this hairclip... even if it is plastic. I was always such a snob about plastic accessories and costume jewelry... but I'm lightening up.

Top: Liz and Co.
Jacket: Talbot's Petite
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Bass (they make my feet look like) duckbills
Earrings: art fair in Kalamazoo, MI
Necklaces: gift from an Ex. But I like them anyway
Hair clip: I forgot


  1. Accessories like jewelry are fun. Pure fun. There's no reason to hold back on adding them to any outfit.

    Congrats on the weight-loss.

  2. Great top and accessories. I often double up my necklaces and I never worry about the clasps showing.

    What are you doing to lose weight? I'm just curious - I'm a Lifetime Weight Watchers member. :)

  3. I'm a Weight Watchers dropout... I'm recovering from injuries that had me pretty laid up. I can do more now.

    And curbing the overeating. I apparently inherited the "greedy gene".

  4. You look awesome! Good job. Pretty earrings.
