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.

Reespekt Mah Authoritah!

Do you have a certain outfit (or several) that makes you feel more businesslike, chic, and confident than usual? This is one of mine:

The only thing missing was the authoritative clacking of proper shoe heels... I'm still in Crocs from the surgeries. Once I'm in proper shoes again... watch out!

OK, not the greatest photo of me yesterday, but it doesn't change the feeling throught the day. I'm still getting tons of compliments on the new hairdo, and I always get compliments on my beautiful glass pendant:

I tossed on unremarkable white gold earrings, but I don't think I have a photo of them. They're very simple, and don't clash with the necklace.

I'm still a little impressed I wore something other than my brown nubby "Monday pants"... dubbed so because I can often skip ironing altogether on oversleeping Mondays. But I was up in time to iron my navy ones! I know... some would say I should do my ironing the night before. But that's just "crazy talk"!

  1. At the risk of boring you, I'm going to say for the third time that I love your new hair! Rarely have I seen such a transformation. The shorter length brings youth and vibrancy to your whole appearance. And when it curls a little, it looks even more chic.

  2. Bored? Heck no- I'm eating it up!

  3. I agree- that new hair is knock-out! I like the waves/curls that it brings out. Great "authoritah" outfit too, powerful and still feminine.

  4. Love that blazer! Very versatile. Can be worn with slacks, skirts or jeans! You are so beautiful! Kiah

  5. Yowza! This is a great look on you. I am enamored with your new 'do. The crisp white jacket with the colorful top works so well. Chic indeed!

  6. i'm a huge fan of the white blazer! a few months ago i even work it for a week straight, that's how versatile it is! i really do like the lighter colors on you.
