When I came home from work that day, my sister asked me if I’ve been wearing more suits lately. I told her I don’t wear suits. I guess she meant blazers. Which I guess I have been wearing more often. Apparently she’s noticed. I’ve had this black blazer from Bryan’s for a while now but had yet to wear it. It’s kind of looser fitting than my other blazers, but I like it. I like being able to look professional without looking super feminine sometimes. I got this red shirt at Dynamite a while ago and this was my first time wearing it as well. It was a little wrinkled, but you can’t tell because I covered it up. My red scarf is from a kiosk in Metrotown, and my red heart necklace, which is unfortunately blocked by my scarf, is from Carleton Cards and has my birthstone. I like buying jewellery from places you wouldn’t expect.
I am just so in love with this colour. This bright royal blue is my absolute favourite. I bought this blazer when I was shopping with my friend at Forever 21 downtown on Robson street on St. Patrick’s Day. Yeah, while everyone else was out drinking in bars, we were out shopping for clothes. Because that’s what we do. It was the day before my last day of work at my previous job and I thought I ought to buy some more professional looking clothing for my new job. This blazer didn’t have a price tag on it, but it turned out to be a decent price for a blazer. I remember while we were there, my friend found a shirt that said “Leave me alone” and suggested I should wear it as a joke on my last day of work. Unfortunately, they didn’t have it in my size.
I got the black top at Sears at Richmond Centre before they closed down. I think my dad actually bought it for me because he had a Sears card so he could get a discount. My navy blue floral scarf is probably the best thing I ordered from Avon.
I got this necklace from Her Story Lockets when they had a booth set up at the PNE Marketplace last year. You get to choose which charms you want to put inside the locket to create your own unique, personalized look. I bought some for friends and family as well, because I think it’s really neat idea and makes a cool gift for someone when you can use charms that reflect who they are. Mine include shoes, shopping bags, a big sister heart, a camera, and my birthstone. I wish I could find more items in this kind of blue.
