This wasn’t what I was originally going to wear today, but I had some unforeseen issues with my initial outfit and this was the next best option. I think I got this dress at Winners. I hate birds, but I love the bright colours on this dress. I got the black sweater at Sears. I have a lot of black sweaters but this is the only one I could find this morning. My pink flip-flop necklace is from a jewellery vendor at the UBC student union building. It was this necklace that initially drew my attention to that tables, where I then ended up buying three other necklaces and two rings, including the black one I’m wearing here. I don’t know if you can tell, but my little green earrings from Claire’s are also in the shape of flip-flops. I got my pink bracelet from a Christmas craft fair at Steveston Community Centre in Richmond. They threw in the bracelet for free because I’d purchased a few of their necklaces, so this was a nice added bonus.
I wanted another fun outfit that day because I was going to a Neil Diamond concert after work. And yes, I’m pretty sure I was the youngest person there. I got this dress at H&M. I actually wore it to my interview for my current job but with a different sweater. So it has to be lucky or something, right? Or maybe I just feel really confident when I wear it? Is it weird that I love a dress with birds on it when in reality I actually hate birds and find them super annoying? I repeated my purple Jacob sweater and my grey Bryan’s leggings (pretty much the only leggings I own that currently fit). My aunt gave me these silver earrings as a birthday present one year and I think they might be my favourite pair. I love that they’re big enough to stand out, but not so big that they’re too heavy or obnoxious. I decided to wear two bracelets that day, because, yay, concert! One is from Claire’s and one might be from the dollar store. The necklace is also from Claire’s and the ring is from UBC.
I’m not actually superstitious. I see crows all the time and think nothing of it (except for “Ew, crows I wish they would go away”). But I don’t usually see them perched on top of the sign at my bus stop, as if with some sort of sense of entitlement. What the hell is that about? Most people know all about the beef I have with Translink. Now they’ve got the crows involved? How dare they. Translink and crows, two things I despise, conspiring together. I don’t stand a chance, do I? If seeing a black crow is a bad omen, then seeing a black crow sitting atop the sign at your bus stop must be a really bad omen.
