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.

Freeda's been bugging me to come back onto Blogger, so why not? No sharpened pencils or back-to-school wardrobe for fall… just me, and an outfit I'm sure I've posted before!


Does anybody know how to keep this hem from rolling up? Ironing alone isn't working:

I forgot jewelry this morning, and had to use the "backup" cosmetic kit I keep in my desk:


 I've been pretty wrapped up in stuff the last 6 months or so. We've had administrative changes at work (including the opposing side) so there have been "adjustments". Plus, I was pretty uninspired fashion-wise. Going straight from winter to muggy summer, with no "spring" to speak of, certainly didn't help.

 I have an AAUW dinner tonight (I just joined this year), so I will try to pick up some earrings on my way after work. Because I feel naked without earrings… but only IF I have time from picking my car up from the shop after $1k of maintainance. Ouch.

 Anyway… nice to be back, and I will stop by your pages soon, luvvies!

  1. i was thinking of that stuff you iron on, but i don't know what it's called. it looks like freeda knows the name, smart lady. i hope you show us your earrings later. :)

  2. I am using the same mascara as you right now! I really like your tops. I need to amp up my wardrobe for fall!

  3. Glad to have you back! Nice to read your comment on my blog. I love your shirt and the red belt with it.
    Hope all is well.

  4. Welcome back! We use some of the same that gel eyeliner! Hmmm...I would say turn it under and do another simple hem...but the suggestion above sounds like it would work, too.

  5. Great outfit! I agree with you, everyone must always look their best regardless of their profession :)

  6. I love zebra pattern!(even if ironing can be hard at times)
    I'm following you, return love back?

  7. No idea what to do about the hem, sorry! It's a nice outfit itsboth classy and very modern. Car repairs are the worst. 1k, ouch. Welcome back to blogging lawyer doll!

  8. It's great to see you again, LD! I love a graphic top with black skirt, like this. Sorry, I don't have a cure for the rolling sweater -- I have had the same problem too.

  9. I've missed you! I've missed your posts but, even more, I've missed your personality.

    Nice print and outfit. The only way you could improve it is to jump on a motorycle. Everything (including tutus) looks better on a motorcycle. :)

  10. Welcome back! Good to see you again.

  11. I am so glad you are back. I have missed seeing you. As to the hem roll. I am mystified about that one myself. It frustrates me to no end.

  12. Glad to see you back! No advice on the hem, sorry, I have similar issues myself sometimes. I do like your top though so hope you figure something out.

  13. Nice outfit!
