I probably should have worn pants since it was actually kind of cold this morning but oh well. Like I said, I’m just going to continue wearing dresses because I can. Unless someone can direct me to a store where I can buy a pair of pants that are comfortable and look good and fit well. As far as I’m aware, none exist. I got this dress at Suzy Shier. It’s not new, I just haven’t worn it to work before. It came with a belt, but I don’t know what the hell happened to that belt. One of the belt loops on the side of the dress is broken. I think it may have been torn when I bought it, so I got like 10% off or something. I figured it would tear eventually and I’m not a belt person anyway. This navy blue cardigan is new, I got it at La Vie En Rose. So maybe it’s technically lounge wear, but can you even tell? My green leaf necklace is from UBC, my green zipper earrings are from Claire’s, and my green ring is from Greek Day.
I got this purple sweater dress from Bryan’s. I remember one time I wore it with a belt, and then I took the bus, and then when I got off the bus, I realized I was no longer wearing the belt. Sadly, the clasp had come undone, unbeknownst to me. And I couldn’t find a replacement belt the day I wore it here, so I used safety pins to secure the front. Because I’m resourceful like that. Like MacGyver. I don’t know where I got the navy cardigan from. Possible also from Bryan’s. I used to buy a lot of stuff there, at the Lansdowne Centre location. I remember my friend saying she wonders how they’re still in business. Probably because of people like me. This navy blue scarf with the flowers came in a three pack from Avon. Which I’m still selling, if anyone cares. I’m assuming no one does. I don’t even care. There’s only so much makeup and random stuff you can order for yourself before you realize you’re not really benefiting from this. My silver heart necklace is from Payless. Yes, I buy jewellery at a shoe store. Because they have a decent selection of nickel free jewellery. And it was shiny. I bought this pair of wing earrings from a booth at Fan Expo Vancouver this year. It was listed under Supernatural jewellery. Because they’re supposed to represent Castiel. I also bought a matching necklace, which I’ll be sure to wear another time. Of all the fandoms, Supernatural is my favourite. They have their own convention in August, which I kind of want to go to, although I heard from a friend that the people there tend to be crazier than the ones at Fan Expo. And it’s kind of pricey. So we shall see.
I decided to continue with some blue in my outfit on my fifth day of work. I don’t know if Casual Fridays are a thing, but I like to keep it classy. After trying on this sweater in like ten different colours at Sears, I decided to get the blue one since it was the brightest of the options (RIP Sears, why are all these stores closing on me?). Not to be outshined by the sweater, the blue sparkly scarf is one of a few sparkly scarves that I purchased at a kiosk in Metrotown (I was Christmas shopping at the time and not supposed to be buying stuff for myself, but who could resist a bright and shiny new scarf?). One of my former coworkers told me that I should get some fish earrings to wear with the scarf since it reminds her of the ocean. The blue belt actually came with the dress from Dynamite that I wore the day before, but since I neglected to wear the belt that day, I decided to give it a chance with this outfit instead. The blue flower necklace which so nicely matches the sweater and the scarf was one of the necklaces I bought at the UBC student union building from one of the vendors. I pretty much bought the most blinged out stuff he had as my reward to myself for getting a new job. Last but not least, I got this little black dress from Ross during one of my trips to the States (I feel like I’m due for another one soon…Road trip anyone?). Now I wish I’d bought the sweater in more colours like I did with the scarf. So I could repeat this outfit with all the colours of the rainbow.
