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.

Gumby and your 7th Grade English teacher had a baby

And here she is:

While these pants are the most flattering I own... they make my tiny feet disappear!

I broke one of my usual fashion rules, which is "no necklaces over turtlenecks". The last time I did it, it got pretty good reviews. But this time, I feel like it's ageing me. Your thoughts?

A quick closeup of the necklace to refresh your memory (or to show the newbies!):

I finally remembered what the stones are: fossilized coral.

And the coordinating earrings (the set was made by me at the local bead shop one day when I got bored):

The fuzzy jacket paired with a sweater is, at the least, pleasantly warm.

Sweater: VanHusen outlet
Jacket: VanHusen outlet
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Bass outlet
Jewelry: made by me with a pendant gift from Mom


  1. Maybe put the back of the necklace under the turtleneck fold-over?

    Explain to me, in detail, why you feel those pants are flattering.

  2. I didn't say they were flattering... I said they are the most flattering I own (that currenly fit). All my pants suck.

  3. Hey, this isn't fair... I tried a necklace over a turtleneck recently and it was so awful I vowed never to do it again. But on you, it works. Can someone explain that to me?!

  4. Fair enough, sis. Have you set a point (weight or time) when you're going to brave pants-shopping?

    Shy, maybe it's the monochromatic trick she used? Did yours contrast?

  5. Ok, the title of your post made me laugh.

    I don't think the necklace-with-turtleneck is ageing at all. But agree that maybe you need to tuck it under the fold.

  6. Freeda- I have picked a point at which I'll go shopping... just not quite there yet. Soon....

  7. I love necklaces over turtlenecks!

  8. May I add to the mix and say I hate turtlenecks period? They always give the impression that one has no neck. That said, I do like the jacket!
