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.

Effect of Tailoring

I so seldom get "pre-tailoring" photos of my jackets, but I finally have some so I can show the difference it makes! The left photos are the ones I texted to Freeda for a second opinion. The ones on the right are from Friday.

Hmm... perhaps I should press that front seam.... And I think I want to put shoulder pads in this jacket. To be fair, I've put on a few pounds since I had the jacket taken in.

I was supposed to go to a jewelry party... but somebody made the roads crappy:


Guess me and my really cute sweater sleeve detail will hang out at home:

I like how these tinkle in my ears all day.

The only color in Friday's outfit was in my shoes:

And I'm finally caught up in my posting! Now, I just need to stop by some of my favorite blogs and check in.

Sweater: Tribal via Pip's in Corning, NY
Jacket: Apt 9 from Kohl's via consignment shop
Pants: Lane Bryant
Earrings: Lia Sophia
Shoes: Aerosoles


  1. I really need to get more tailoring done. In my copious spare time.... How sad is it when you don't even have time to take clothing to a tailor?

  2. Tailoring is magical: it transforms ill-fitting pieces of cloth into beautiful clothes. People underestimate its power.

    This Star Trek movie is my favorite sci-fi film of all time. Ricardo was so over-the-top. I mean, how many men wear a push-up bra?!

  3. Hey! I love that you are wearing Lia Sophia earrings! I have that exact pair; they came in my advisor kit.

    I think the tailoring did wonders for that jacket. I don't know about shoulder pads, though...I think its great in this second iteration.
