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.

New Fashion Challenge... and I'm Off to a Rocky Start!

I was goofing off on Pinterest, and saw that Rebecca pinned a little something from a blogger I'm not familiar with. OK... let's take a look-see, shall we?

February 1st just so happened to be Friday. Theme: "Arm Candy". Well, that usually means dressing up for a date... but I had to work. Not to mention, Hubby is in no condition for "date night"-- and would get offended if I had one with someone else. Men are so touchy like that.... *wink*

He only leaves the house to go to the doctor now. *sigh*

So I decided that "Arm Candy" is going to mean my beautiful Swarovski crystal bracelet that my friend Lovely made for me:

And I grabbed my pretties that Hubby gifted me to coordinate:

Then I rushed out the door to head to the office. Fully intending to apply makeup when I got there, using my MK hoarded cosmetics that I'm finally experimenting with.

Then my day got crazy (and I in my office working on stuff all day, not in a courtroom) and I just forgot!  Oh, and I had a hairstyling failure to compound the non-Fabruary 1st.

Yeah. Looks fine if the head is Photoshopped out.

Sweater: VanHeusen outlet
Pants: Lane Bryant
Bracelet: gift from a friend
Earrings: Premier Designs gift from Hubby
Shoes: I forgot which ones I wore....

Saturday theme: "Think Pink".

I thought I was going to strike out, because my pink sweater is a bit snug now. But I recalled that I had a bag of stuff from the Fashion Bug close-out sale sitting next to my dresser. Voila!

I love the sleeve detail... covers the bingo-wings quite well! It was another no-makeup day, since the only outing was to take Hubby to the doctor. Wearing real clothes was enough for one day, but I went one step further....

Stinky, out of the blue, said that my earrings are pretty, but he thinks they should have a stone in the middle:

When I received these, I wasn't accustomed to costume jewelry. SO I wore them in the shower a few times, and the silver-color started darkening and rubbing off. I decided that I like the effect!

Top: Fashion Bug
Jeans: Lane Bryant
Earrings: Premier Designs gift from M-I-L
Shoes: I think I wore my usual Ariats... not bothering to post them this time.

Sunday theme: "Denim with Style"

How about "Pajamas with Sloppiness". Didn't leave my house.


  1. Hey - I've been doing that challenge!

    Will look forward to seeing some of your interpretations of the themes :)

  2. What a fun post. Really enjoy reading it.

  3. I'm sorry your husband is still struggling.
    The bracelet is really pretty.

    I would love to do that challenge, but I supposed I'm not that disciplined to keep up with it. :(

  4. Your bracelet and earrings are gorgeous. I will have to check back to see what other combinations you put together.
