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.

More Bathroom Wisdom

I really liked this mural in a restaurant we stopped in while on the road, and asked Hubby to do my blog shot with it as background. Have I mentioned that Hubby is legally blind? His photography skills are often subpar:



Not "free dog" blind. Just "can't get a driver's license but apparently sees well enough to criticize my driving" blind…

BTW… the shirt from today is actually the one in this shot from a couple weeks ago, worn backwards. I was feeling a bit too chilly and exposed this morning in the CLE. AND I was sitting right next to my boss! Soooo I ducked into the ladies' room to switch it around.



And read the grafitti:



Unfortunately, the photo of my favorite one didn't turn out. Boo.

Once again, I'm the beneficiary of Freeda's shopping… she had me try on this amazing necklace, which I was admiring while I was at her place. She put it on me, then decided it suits me better:



The shoes don't exactly match the top, but they are far away from it, and it's close enough:



Since I'm spending the bulk of my weekend in the two-day conference/CLE or in the car, I'm officially living like veal. *sigh*

Top: via Freeda's purge pile
Sweater: IMAN from HSN gift from Freeda
Pants: Lane Bryant
Earrings: via Gold Mine in Bath, NY (plain hoops- not shown)
Necklace: Freeda said she got it at a hijab shop in Dearborn, MI
Shoes: Aerosoles

  3. I think the shoes are fine, even if they don't match, they still "go". Purple is a really good color for you!!!

  5. Yup, the store name for the necklace is Hija-bee, in Dearborn. They carry a lot of cute modest stuff and they ship too, if you follow them on facebook. That necklace suits you better than me! I never could get it to look quite right and then it looks awesome and effortless on you. Enjoy!
