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 Most Delicate, Beautiful Top I've EVER Owned

So light, airy, almost ethereal… I was captivated by this top on my last shopping spree in the Mitten:



To be prefectly frank, a size up would probably drape a bit better over my chest, but this was the last one. NO WAY was I passing on this treasure! When I bought it, the nude underlayer and the top were connected at the bottom. But it kept creeping up on me, so my tailor separated them. I now tuck the underlayer into my pants:



Ooh-ooh! Here's the back:



Unfortunately, I have to cover the gorgeousness to go to court :(



Didn't have time to do my hair again… haircut is scheduled for Tuesday! :)

Top: Chenault via Stein Mart
Jacket: Kasper via consignment shop
Earrings: farmer's market
Hair flower: Maurice's
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Clark's of England

  1. I like it under the jacket. I think having a defined shoulder helps balance your figure.

  2. It's a gorgeous top....and I agree with freed; it looks wonderful under the jacket. I understand the need to balance the figure...I have that issue too. Pears are beautiful.

  7. This is such a pretty delicate top and I love how you show it both ways, with and without a blazer because I always find myself loving tops that can be versatile. Very pretty even if you didn't have time to do your hair again it looks styled perfectly with this
