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.

The best thrift in life is FREEEEE!

I am definitely putting today's outfit on "Thursdays are for Thrifters" at Spunky Chateau… I didn't pay a red cent for anything from the waist up (except the jacket)!



I'm feeling so good with this outfit, I may repost it into next week's "Visible Monday" as well.

Squeaky's gorgeous earrings from India (I'm going to return them, I swear!):



I'm loving the pink, white, and green combo:



I paired it up with this scarf one of the secretaries gave me, that I hadn't found a way to wear until I acquired this pink sweater. I decided to wear it like a blouse under the sweater, tucking the ends into my pants:



I do really love these shoes:



Sweater: via Freeda's purge pile
Scarf: gift from a friend (which she got at a yard sale)
Pants: Lane Bryant (clearance $10)
Shoes: Bass outlet
Earrings: borrowed from a friend
Brooch: family heirloom gift from M-I-L

  6. I love this white jacket! I finally located my perfect white blazer after searching for probably a year. SO HAPPY. White blazers add a cool dimension to any outfit.
