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.

Little Bit Country, Little Bit Rock & Roll

Ugh! I hated that stupid Donny and Marie song. How about "living in the country, but I'm a whole lot rock & roll"? A better fit for moi, at least! So I went to the salon last night, after ditching Tai Ji in favor of an at-home mani-pedi. My knees were *killing* me, and my polish looked ratty… anyway, here's the hair with last night's blowout today:

Wow, this is a bad pic of my face! But I actually felt cute, and got several compliments!

I really like my hairdresser- she's a rock chick with a whole "Joan-Jett" thing going on. She's great at pushing me to get a little edgier with my hair, so I don't start looking too much like the "dowdy country lawyer".

I'm feeling pretty city rock-chick today! I really love this brooch, and I should put some effort into wearing more of them. I tend to fear veering into "tackiness" by wearing too many accessories. I need to loosen up!

My new haircut exposes my ears more, so I shouldn't forget my earrings:

I have been having lots of problems with knee-high stockings falling down because they don't actually go up to me knees. Even Queen size ones! *sigh* I decided to try regular-size thigh-highs, and see if that solved the problem. They are a bit expensive for everyday, but I picked up a couple to try out. This pair, with the top folded a few times, I count as a success:

Top: Grace via Bon Ton
Jacket & belt: Gianni Petite via consignment shop
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Aerosoles
Brooch: via M-I-L's purge
Earrings: Premier Designs gift from Hubby


  1. cute outfit! I am always afraid that the bluer purples like that will make me look really pale.

  2. I love your hair like that! You really suit the rock-n-roll look!

  3. I love that brooch too!

    Your hair really does look great that way!

  4. Love the new hair, very cool! That brooch is stunning, and the purple colour of your top really suits you, think I would lose the belt though!

    1. I think you are right about the belt- perhaps I will try it again in a few pounds. Thanks!

  5. I love your new haircut. I really wish I could wear bangs.

    I'm a fool for deep purples and grays, so I'm particularly liking this outfit. I have a ton of heirloom brooches that I'm challenging myself to wear more often - and creatively.

  6. Very beautiful, my love!

    Feel free to follow me back via gfc. It mean a lot for me :)

    Happy weekend,
