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.

Red Menace... or "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes"?

I was reading someone's blog (sorry, I don't remember who so I can't properly credit) expressing frustration that not enough fashion blogs show new ways to wear things. So here's my experiment:

Ignore the weird hair- I'd just brushed it off my face... pay attention to the shiny at the neck. A necklace? Nooooo....

Still confused? Here's a closeup:

Pins I've collected over the years, but I don't think have been worn, really. Soviet and Chinese gifts from friends. This isn't all of them- just a small grouping. I'll have to remember to break out more pins.

Top it all off with earrings:

The brown nubby pants, and I'm ready to march... to the leftover Christmas cookies in the office!

  1. Pins! Love 'em. I have many myself and they make great adornments.

  2. Oh I don't think I even have any brooches/pins! Great idea though - looks so much like a necklace :)

  3. Hey, it's a different way to wear them!
