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.

Normal shoes!

This is a week of big excitement for me... no more Crocs to work, and no more of the Bass "fuglys" I've been wearing almost nonstop for well over a year! Sunday night I reorganized my shoe closet, putting the fuglys all the way to the back. Last night I organized my sock drawer, putting knee-his and trouser sox into ziplocs by color.

So Monday was 1 of real shoes (excepting my Ariats, which I broke out last week):



I asked Hubby to get me from head to toe... but you can't really see my cute new shoes:



I still appear to have the problem of my feet looking disproportionately small next to my big legs and hips. Other than wear unprofessionally chunky shoes... maybe clown shoes... I think I'm just going to have to ignore it. Or lose a million pounds!

Until then, I adapt. Including tucking in my snakeskin-print top because it's a bit snug, and would otherwise ride up. It borderline fits... if I put on any more weight, it would be too tight:



I love the print and the flutter-sleeves. I'm deciding if I like this necklace with it:



Perhaps better with the jacket than without?

I didn't wear earrings because I couldnt find any that go with it. My hair most covers my ears now, anyway....

Top: via Stein Mart
Jacket: Talbot's Petite
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Trotters via a now-defunct shoe store
