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.

It's All About the Details

And everything in this outfit is chosen to set off this gorgeous beaded neckline:

It is actually pretty heavy, and the backing scratches a bit. I can't really wear this in the heat of summer, as I initially intended, because I have to wear an undershirt to keep it from scratching me to death. I briefly considered posting a pic of that... but decided that was just too much boob to put in your face!

Instead, here's a mirror shot in the courthouse:

I prefer to wear brown pants with this top, so I don't look like one giant black mass stalking my next victim. Although my back was bugging me so much today... I was feeling a bit homicidal. A quick trip to my friendly neighborhood chiropractor straightened out my spine and my attitude:

But apparently not my wonky eye!

While my hair does (barely) fit into this clip again... it doesn't look like this any more. Really old pic, but I love the clip so I broke it out today:

I just went with inoffensive earrings, to avoid distraction from the wooden beads:

I skipped Zumba because my back is still sore, and I need to give it a break this evening. But I plan to lift tomorrow, to "make up" for skipping the class. In the meantime, I'm going to lie down now....

  3. Very pretty top. I don't like scratchy clothing. Why do they make it that way anyway?

  5. I have to agree with Lisa; this is a TERRIFIC shape for you. Having a top that flares at the bottom allows it to be a a visual question mark about whether that's the shirt or my hips, which I think always helps my pear-shape look better. Moreover, the whole outfit comes together beautifully! Great job!

  6. That beaded collar is amazing, and it gets its day in the sun with keeping everything else simple. Hope your back, is much, much better.
