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.

Book Club Night

We read a novel based on the couple, Henry Rathbone and Clara Harris (spoilers, darling), who accompanied President and Mrs. Lincoln to a play one fateful evening at Ford's Theater (background for the non-U.S.-based readers).

To be perfectly frank, the history is interesting... but the book was a bit of a slog. Hard to get through, it drags in many parts... but at least I had fun chatting away with the ladies!

And I finished up the FABruary challenge! Thursday's theme was "Shades of Grey". Easy-peasy:

I decided to keep the neckline simple, so I did not wear the pendant this time:

But I did want a little sparkle:

I'm trying to decide if the look of the hemline, shoes, and contrasting socks is dorky or cool. Your thoughts?

  2. I like the Mary Janes with those socks. The sweater is extremely figure-flattering.

  3. I think your pants are too short. Fairly consistently. Don't know why, it's not like you grew. If they are going to be shorter, they need to be narrower, though I know you don't care for that silhouette.

    1. I keep trying to lose weight so that I can justify buying new, longer pants… but I suck at it!

    I'm glad you reviewed that book honestly. Some friends and I are starting a book club and are currently considering books. I'm super excited.
