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.

To be, or not to be- that is the question

Whether 'tis nobler to pair this scarf with this jacket, or to to take arms against outrageous fortune, and in doing so, separate these garments....

Original plan was for the exact same outfit already posted ("Is it pathetic"), so no post was planned. Sorry about the bad lighting-- by the time I decided to post today's wardrobe dilemma, my secretary was gone. Had to utilize Hubby's substandard photography skills.



But I almost forgot I had to be in court this afternoon. Black robe on Judge = jacket on lawyer.



I really wasn't sure if the jacket and the scarf together were too much. Here's the outfit sans scarf:



Thoughts?

As for my hair-- bad hair day, pretty barette....



Going to a jewelry party tonight, so stay tuned for new goodies!

Jacket: VanHusen outlet
Sweater: VanHusen outlet
Pants: Lane Bryant
Scarf: Chico's
Earrings: JC Penney
Barette: gift from Mom

  1. With the judge, I'd probably err towards the more conservative and ditch the scarf.

  2. I have to say, I'm kind of annoyed at all the goodies you list as being from baby sis or mom. How come you get all the loot?

    Pfft. What am I saying? They didn't even invite me to Europe, why on earth would I expect jewelry?

    Excuse me, I'm going to go self-medicate my PMS with a Hershey bar.

  3. OK, PMS Queen... I keep stuff for years, often decades. That's probably an explanation why I have all these goodies. And you didn't get cool craft-show barettes because you always chopped your hair off! Pfft!

  4. It looks good with or without the scarf but Sis is correct...nice & conservative without it...perfect for court. (Again- love that jacket)

  5. The jacket is lovely and a great colour on you. And that's not a bad hair day - it's a really sweet, well behaved hair day! You look wonderful. And I vote with the scarf - I like the textures & proportions on you.

  6. Ooohh!! Family drama!!

    Will this turn into a soap-opera?! Will the mysterious third-sibling show up and reveal him/herself to have been adopted??

  8. Do you ever button your blazers? Or are they always worn open?

  9. I used to button them. I always buy and have them tailored so that I can. Then I put on more weight, so I can't anymore. *sigh*
