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.

New jacket

I picked this up on clearance at JC Penney, but had to take it in for tailoring, of course. I still feel like the waist is a bit big. Your thoughts?

See what I mean?

I'm also wondering whether I should baste down some of the pleats on the back... just enough to keep them from sticking out too much.

Hair and accessories... fail. I love this necklace and earrings, but the necklace doesn't work with this top as well as I hoped:

(Curses! I thought I had a stored pic, but I don't see one in my photobucket! It's the same necklace in the header photo)

The earrings went OK, though:

I couldn't figure out if the jacket is black-and-white, or if it "reads" gray. Because I want to wear it with my navy pants, I puzzled on this. I decided to take my cue from the buttons and lining, which are gray. Good call?

Jacket: Worthington from JC Penney
Top: via Goodwill
Pants: Lane Bryant
Necklace: Premier Designes gift from M-I-L
Earrings: Premier Designs gift from Hubby


  1. The jacket details are nice, the colour is great ( definitely looks gray) and I love the length. I think the jacket looks a little've lost weight since you took it to the tailor. You're right about the pleats they need to be basted.

  2. I am not a fan of this jacket.

  3. According to your sister (who ought to know), your birthday is sometime soon. Happy Birthday!

    I was walking around town yesterday, shopping, and saw something that reminded me of you. I wondered what you'd think of it. It's funny how we've never met and yet you own space in my head.

  4. I like the detailing of the jacket, but it still looks like it could be taken in some. It looks a bit big in the sleeves and in the mid section.

    Like the pop of blue next to your face, flattering colour :)
