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.

Totally New Outfit!!!

It's been ages since everything was new... I was so excited, I actually wore the same outfit two days in a row! Well, that and my back was killing me, so the easy availability of the clothes sitting on the chair was a deciding factor.

New jacket, taken in at the bust by my clever tailor... and a new top:

Even new pants, which I just got back from the tailor... she had to take in the waist:

I know the photo is horrible, but Freeda has been giving me a hard time about my too-short pants. She dragged me to the mall, and wrestled my credit card out of my purse. So, how is the length on the new pants?

I've been having a bit of fun with matchy-matchy in this outfit... just check out the jacket lining (ok, the flash changed the color a scoche):

Down to my toes in my new, expensive-as-heck, Naot sandals. OK, I confess that wanting to get blog shots of the matchy-matchy down to my toes, since I didn't think of it Monday, was another deciding factor in the Tuesday redux:

Who am I kidding? It was the main reason... I'm such a dork! Alright, the earrings I already had:
