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.

Resolution recap

I was going to re-do five less-than-stellar outfits from my December recap, but didn't get a round tuit until toward the month. So much for dealing with my chronic procrastination! And resisting the occasional impulse to channel my dad's bad puns.

... and I only tried two "do-overs", succeeding at only one:

Which got some lovely compliments... The other was another attempt at wearing this odd sweater:

Have I mentioned that I'm a lifelong underachiever? According to scores of K-12 teachers, anyway. Considering that my slack-azz self holds three law licenses... I wonder sometimes what I *could* have done. Like learn to shop cohesively? ;/

So I need to redo the redo with the weird sweater. Freeda thinks I should give up on it, but I'm not quite ready to throw in the sweater. Ugh- bad pun... FAIL!

Not only to I have previous wardrobe failures to correct, I added new ones in January. Two of them involved my too-big Iman sweater, which should be corrected in due course. The other likely redo:

The only thing I didn't like was that the sweater and scarf don't quite tonally match. And turtleneck sweater + thick scarf = Hulk neck. While Hubby is a big fan of The Hulk, I don't think he wants to be married to "Hulk-neck".

But I like the scarf with the jacket. I like the sweater with the jacket. A puzzlement.... (Now I'm channelling Yul Brynner? The King of Siam was almost as constant a presence in my household as my dad, I suppose).

And the award for most coma-inducing abuse of the color red goes to:


Was I even trying that day, or was I semi-consious? Most mornings, as an unfortunate side effect of insomnia, the latter is highly likely!

My truly bad idea in January will fit into another post at another time. I have a month of jammie-time (aka FMLA leave) coming up, so I need to save some stuff to post... or you will be looking at a test pattern. I will try to achieve more between drug-induced naps.

Lately, I have been noticing I'm now carrying some extra luggage under my eyes. Daily photos are bringing that to my attention. *sigh* Am I doing to have to start Preparation H-ing them in the mornings? That will be another two minutes' sleep lost.

Maybe I will look at that last photo. That should put me right out!


  1. Loved yesterdays re-do! I'm sure the time off will do you good.

  2. Hm, I may have to try the preparation H myself!

  3. I can't believe you can blog entirely with just your phone, impressive!

    And you're right, I would totally want you to be my lawyer!

    Stay Happy and Positive!




  4. I actually love your 'odd sweater' and the way you wore it. What sort of law do you practice, btw?

  5. Felony criminal defense. In the Public Defender's Office. Yep, I spend my days with lovely folks... kiddie porn afficianados, rapists, druggies, burglers, abusers, and some pretty violent folk.

    So it's improper for me to look sexy or expensive... not to mention imprudent! For example, I have a beautiful Gucci purse I bought while at I was in a private firm that hasn't seen the light of day since I started this job.

    But I cannot let myself slide into the state I see many of the local attorneys in... just can't.
