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 Holy Grail

I've been pretty busy the last few days, so I'm catching up on my posts. Wednesday:

Some of the most difficult things to find in this area are "queen-size" knee-high in certain colors. I get stuck buying "off-black" and "nude" when I want BLACK and BROWN. I stopped into a Walgreen's last night, and "ah...AH...ahhh" (cue angels singing) I found these bad boys on sale, and bought a bunch:

My dresser looks like a gumball machine spit up! Now I just need navy. And maybe some colors for fun.... But I broke out the "coffee" ones on Wednesday to test the fit and color. My verdict? Underthrilled. The color was nice, but the quality visibly isn't great. And they kept sliding down my calves. *sigh* The search continues....

I wore this outfit especially so I could test out the brown color:

Yep, posted it a zillion times before. And will probably wear it a ton after... it's good for court days. But I do really like the top, and it feels like it fits better now:

I've been trying the "product in wet hair", but I'm wondering if it's making me look like a Cocker Spaniel?

I do really like these earrings, especially the subtle sparkle:

And my suede shoes are cute, even if they did come from an "old lady" store:

Didn't make it to the gym, I had a Junior League meeting after work. What I consider a "valid excuse". I did go to yoga on Monday, the called in "dead' to work Tuesday... so no gym then, either.

  3. I think your hair looks great. I like it both curly and straight. And I do love the bangs.

    Have you tried trouser socks? They sell them at Target; they're thinner than socks and silkier and nicely finished looking and come in all those important colors you name. They stay up too!

    1. I have the same problem with trouser socks... but I will try Target- I don't get there much (it's inconveniently located)

    1. Not mine! I just pulled that off Google Images to illustrate the cocker spaniel hair. I'm allergic to dogs, much to Hubby and Stinky's dismay....

  5. The outfit is really pretty as are the shoes. I need some black tights to wear with a dress to a wedding in November. I'll let you know if I find anything that is worth while.
