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.

I get to show how well the alteration on this top works out:

But I put the color/texture photo before the "before" one for some bizarre reason... I wore different shoes today:

So this older pic has not only a "bad hair" day... but the pre-alteration top:

I'm thrilled that the fix looks so much better under a jacket!

The rest of the goodies:

I really need to remember to get a better photo of this barrette... it has a beautiful "burled wood" pattern:

No precipitation today, thank goodness for sparing my suede:

I'm in trial-prep crunch mode for a bit, so posting and blog visits will probably be patchy for awhile... bear with me. I'll be around....

  1. Very nice. Alterations are great. And your shoes are cute, too.

  2. I just found your blog and I love it! I'm presently a paralegal aspiring to go to Law Sch. and I need every fashion and academic hints about the profession as I can get; following your blog now...

  3. You look really pretty. The print in the top really makes the outfit stand out.

  4. Love the jacket and the fabric, my dear.

    Have a beautiful week,
