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.

Something Old, and Something New

I'm guessing you figured out Thursday's theme for the  FABruary style challenge!

The something(s) old were pretty much everything, including my consignment-shop wedding sweater... which was the "something new" (to me) at my "quickie legal" handfasting. I've had the shoes less than six months, which makes then "semi-new" in my accounting.

At the handfasting, my "something borrowed" was the necklace I wore, which belonged to my sister Freeda. My "something new"-- to me, anyway-- is the necklace Freeda wore on Black Friday, during her trip to see us. I (loudly) admired it, and let her know (not subtle, either) that when she tired of it, I would be happy to take it off her hands:

I got lots of compliments on it today! And a lot of wondering if it is heavy... which it's not terribly. I paired it up with my teal/turquoise-weird-colored jacket, and the color is a close-enough match (depending on the light):

And I thought it even looked interesting with the neckline of the sweater when I went sans jacket during portion of the day:

My lunar globes seemed a good choice, to complement that beads in the necklace:

And it is so brutally cold here, I decided to keep a Mediterranean vacation in the back of my mind (or at the base of my skull, anyway):

That blue isn't an exact match for the jacket, either. I'll risk it! I went the safe route for "standing-in-court-shoes:
