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.

Another new purchase (Wednesday's outfit)

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!!!

Top: via Stein Mart
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Crocs. I still hurt.
Earrings: Corning Museum of Glass
Hair Flower: Maurice's
Necklace: JC Penney. It's my bead collar.


  1. You look awesome in this outfit! The shirt flatters you beautifully and I love the way you did your hair with the flower!! Very nice!

  2. I love it when anyone says it looks like I've lost weight but when my doctor says it, I'm over the moon! This shirt looks beautiful on you! I love the flower accessory in your hair. I'm glad you seem to be back in top form!

  3. I agree a white flower is better than a black one :) also a fan of belts under the bust, i find they have a way of pulling together just about any outfit.

    also noticed the photo disclaimer under your header(perhaps I missed it last time?) I have started taking pictures with my phone and I like it too. I don't see any problem with it, even if I had a fancy camera I don't think I'd know what to do with it!
