Having new clothes to try out makes it easier to go back to work... like showing off the new clothes made back-to-school a bit less painful. I'm such a child sometimes!
My brand-new top already fits looser than when I bought it, and the same for the newish pants... yay! The highlight of my day yesterday was when my doctor said I looked like I've lost weight!
This top is a real departure for me, I have to put it down to the influence of Lovely, who went shopping with me when I went to MI to visit. The belt under the bust is so cute! I really miss having people to shop with... I've mostly been doing it alone since I moved here.
Since I'm hoping to shrink soonish *knocking on wood, crossing fingers, casting spells... whatever it takes*... I'm probably going to be wearing my newer "fat clothes" a lot so I get some use out of them!
I figured my white hair flower would be more fun than the black one:
Especially since I decided on my trusty black glass earrings.
Yesterday was an office day, so no jacket. I went to see Squeaky yesterday evening... poor girl is still recovering from her auto/pedestrian accident in the winter. Her parents are visiting her from India, so her mom made up a batch of this spicy tamarind rice with peanuts and cashews-- I could eat this every day. I was told someone always brings this to picnics... I'm supposing its the equivilent of devilled eggs. Someone always brings it... and they need to bring more for me!!!

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.
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.
