I finally got this jacket back from the cleaners, after raiding the Space Bags for clothing I've shrunken back into:
I had court and office work all day, then a bar association party in the evening, so I decided black would transition well.
It was part of a suit, but the skirt never fit me. I decided to follow my inspiration from other blogs, and actually wear the matching belt in a way not intended by the designer. The jacket is still too small to button up, and I removed the string beltloops ages ago.
Hubby thought I should show a side view... not really sure why, but OK:
The jacket, obviously, is crucial to the outfit... I just love the texture of the jacket fabric:
I love the contrast of the ruffles with the jacket tweedy fabric... but I'm glad they are black. White or purple would be "too cute" IMO.
And I broke out the big shiny earrings I'm still trying to get used to.
Jacket and belt: Gianni Petite via consignment shop
Pants: Lane Bryant
Earrings: Lia Sophia
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.
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.
