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.

Styling my freebie

Last weekend, I took my Kohl's $10 off coupon in search of a new bra. I wanted to try the Playtex no-slip strap one I've seen on TV... I have a short torso, and slippage is a true annoyance.

Apparently, they don't stock my cup size (surprisingly ginormous), so I had to order it. And they don't take the coupon for the order... fine!

So I raided the clearance rack, and found this beauty for $7.80... meaning FREE for me:

Edited to add: a button came off in the wash before these photos were taken. I wore it the day I got it, but slopped clarified butter during my Red Lobster "Lobster Fest" chowdown.

That was my look for my all-day Continuing Legal Ed about DNA evidence on Friday. The lectures were actually pretty interesting.... but I think the sweater looks better with slacks than with those jeans:

Less bulk around the tummy and hips.

So this was my outfit for a "semi-formal" Boy Scout awards dinner for Stinky on Sunday. Hubby and I were the best-dressed people there.... I guess "semi-formal" doesn't mean what we thought!

(I was going to post a handsome photo of Hubby and Stinky here, but it's not sending from Hubby's phone for some unknown reason)

Before I hear it from anyone else: I do not agree with the politics of the organization's national leadership. If Stinky were my own child, I never would have allowed him to join. But I am a stepparent, and do not get to make these decisions. I just need to clap, smile, and keep my views to myself.

Sweater: Croft and Barrow
Jeans/pants: Lane Bryant

  1. Word. It is hard for me to cheer him on when I so thoroughly dislike the politics of the BSUSA. :( But nice top! Love that color on you.

  2. Great deal on the top! Beautiful colour & love the neckline.

  3. Beautiful sweater. Looks fabulous on you.

    I had a $10 Kohl's coupon, too! I applied mine toward the polka-dot dress I showed recently.

    I know what you mean about the Boy Scouts. It's sad. I was involved with them when I was young.

  4. Lol at your Boy Scout comment. Hear hear!

    Lovely (free) sweater. The collar is really pretty.
