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.

Giftmas bouquet

What is it, you ask? Maybe this will clarify:

NOTE: I am always buying "tall" pants from now on. These pants are too short for my Ariat shoes, but my feet are killing me, and they are my most comfortable shoes. So sue me.

It's a scarf my mom made for one of my Christmas prezzies! I absolutely LOVE it. It's smallish, and rectangular- I pinned the ends together to get this "cowl" effect. It makes me feel like my head is popping out of a big soft and floofy red rose bouquet... LOVE!

I'm wearing a v-neck top, so the scarf is soft and lovely against my skin. I wasn't sure if adding the sparkly earrings to the outfit was a bit much, but the colors on the scarf aren't too loud, so here goes:

Top: via Pip's in Corning, NY
Jacket: VanHusen outlet
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Ariat
Earrings: Premier Designs gift from Hubby
Scarf: made by Mom


  1. That scarf is gorgeous, I love the effect you got by pinning it together!

  2. OMG, I want it! I want it now! So beautiful! Your mom is oh so talented and the colors are perfect! Perfect for your complexion. The earrings go perfectly with this outfit.

  3. As always, you got the best prezzies. We got potholders. You suck. :P

    Good outfit though.

  4. Wow - looks like Hyperbolic crochet-or knitting?! A lot of work for your mom... looks awesome!
    Too bad Freeda got potholders... can she pin them together to make a scarf? No? Oh well.

  5. I really want your scarf! It is soo pretty, do you think your mom would knit one for your never met but friend in my head blogging buddy, lol. You are so pretty and the scarf complements for your complection nicely.
