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 FABruary Fails

I was going to post this last night, but my internet started acting up:(

How's the FABruary Style Challenge going? Here's a hint... Monday theme: "Wear a Dress".

Hahahahahaha! I'm in sub-freezing western New York. Yeah... no dress! I did, however, grab this scarf because my sweater had creases down the front that I wanted to cover up:

I love the subtle colors in this... nice job, Mom! I decided to play off the subtle pink/purple color in the scarf:

I'm a bit sad... one of these earrings went MIA sometime during my workday. I was running around between courtrooms, so it's likely not going to be found. This color is a frequent-flyer in my wardrobe, so this loss leaves a gaping hole in my jewelry box.... Maybe I will convert the orphan earring into a pendant. Eventually.

I will take my comfort in my pretty barrette:

To finish the outfit:

While sitting in the courtroom, I noticed that the soles are coming unglued. Will Crazy Glue do the trick?

Tuesday theme: "Belt it Up". Spent in jammies, sick in bed.

Wednesday theme: "Jacket Up". Finally! Something I can do:

This teal/turquoise color is another frequent flyer in my wardrobe:

The filigree is so cute:

I got a little crazy, and went in a different direction with my barrette. I wanted to pick up the gold tones in the jewelry:

OK, this metal doesn't follow the gold theme... but I love the toe detail:

Thursday theme: "Red Lips". Not with this outfit. The way I tied the scarf only work with a buttoned jacket:

But I did try different eyeshadow! 

The earrings don't match the scarf in all the colors, but I like the way they picked up the pink:

This scarf is lovely, but a but tricky. The knot kept slipping out! I'm going to have to study up on how to tie big square scarves, I didn't do all that great today. But it's so preeetty!

Here's the messy look I wore at my desk:

I hit the Fashion Bug close-out sale, and got these pants for a buck. I will take them to the tailor, as they are looking sloppy-big. After tailoring, perhaps they won't cover my go-to shoes:

  1. I think you are doing great. You have so many pretty accessories, and I am a huge fan of square scarves.

  2. Wow you are coming up with some awesome combinations, I really like the patterns in you scarf and barrette. I haven't tried crazy glue with a shoe before but it may work for you.

  3. LOVE the square scarf! Maybe you could use a brooch or something to keep it pinned at the knot? I know some people have used costume rings to loop square scarves too.

    As for hair-buttonflowers, I can absolutely sew them onto a hair tie or add hair clippies to the back. I'd probably urge you to go for a clip backing as I'm not sure how easy it would be to tie your hair up with a 'flower on the band, but I can do it either way you like. Just get in touch with me Ecc3ntriccynic[at]gmail[dot]com and I'll work something out with ya.

  4. I love all your accessories! :)
    Drop by my blog too dear?
