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.

Happy day!

I attended a LEGAL lesbian wedding today (New York state is starting to catch up with the civilized world)... with a "tacky tropical" theme... it was so touching, especially as the happy couple has been together twelve years waiting for their union to be legal. It was hosted in a friend's lovely old home, with a local Justice of the Peace/friend officiating, with love and friendship all around. And lots of tacky Hawaiian shirts, even on the brides!

I didn't have anything that would work, so Squeaky and I did a little shopping last night and found something perfect:



The maxi-dress is strapless, so I have the top to cover up my bra. I wasn't able to get a good pic of the outfit for the blog, so the mirror shot will have to do. But here's a better closeup of the fabrics:



And we found these fabulous earrings:



I finally have an occasion to wear my fish hook necklace for the first time in ages. I carved it myself when I was in New Zealand... it's a traditional Maori symbol:



And threw on my wood bead necklace as a bracelet this time:



I'm not sure if I should post photos of the wedding, but I will show you the table centerpiece... apparently it was done by a friend of the happy couple, with flowers from her own garden:



Edited to add: I posted this outfit in "Visible Monday" because I got a lot of compliments on it at the wedding!
