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.

Alter, store, or donate?

This shirt is so weird:

I have to tuck it in, it won't fit around my hips so I can't wear it untucked unless I shorten it to the point of being "too short".

Sorry about the crappy photo quality, the lighting was particularly weird today. But I wanted to show how it looks tucked in... see all that extra fabric swimming around my waist? Its even worse in the back. But I love the fabric:

It feels like satin on the inside, and ultrasuede (but finer, like microfiber) on the outside. Which is why I haven't just given up on it. So, what should I do with it?

Hubby got a cute pair of earrings for me for my Christmas prezzie. We agreed the last few years not to gift each other, but I broke it last year, so I guess this is his "revenge". He thought he left them at the office, so I didn't get them Christmas Day. He then found the box in his briefcase at home last night!

Oh! A few days before Christmas, our intern gave to me (sing along!):

A briefcase that's nice and shi-nee!

I guess she got sick of watching me jam my files upended into my purse! I do actually already own one, but it still stuffed with documents from my former private practice, and it was always pretty heavy, anyway. This one is nice and light!

I've stocked it with pens, stickies, tissues, hand lotion, lip balm... with my spare security badge hanging on the end. Guess I can leave my heavy purse in the office/car when going to court now!

Shirt: Freeda's castoff White Stag (is that a Wal-Mart brand?)
Pants: Lane Bryant
Belt: Nine West
Shoes: Ariat
Earrings: Premier Designs gift from Hubby


  1. The bag is elegant and useful. The earrings were a thoughtful gift.

    I normally wouldn't offer an opinion on the shirt but you asked... so... I think you should give it back to the 1970's.

  2. LOL Shy! Not so "shy" no mo'... love it!

  3. Love your earrings...hubby did great.

    I think you should donate!! It might have hope if it was longer, could go outside with a belt to define a waist and a cardi or jacket...but since it has to go inside...I think it is time to kiss it goodbye!!

    This has NOTHING to do with is all about a shirt that doesn't work!

  4. Give it back to me. I'll crop the sleeves and bottom and turn it into a jacket. :)

  5. Nice bag and I like the color. I say donate the shirt or give it back to Freeda! :)

  6. Love the bag! I'm with Bella, give Freeda her shirt back. Happy New Year to you and wishing you great endeavors in blogging.

    P.s. Loving the family pic....beautiful!
