It’s usually cold in the morning, but I thought it would get too hot later in the day for a jean jacket. But then I decided that I didn’t care because I really wanted to wear it. I love my denim jackets. I got this one from Old Navy. I usually like my denim in the darkest wash possible, but I like this one too. I shaved my legs a bit better this morning so I could wear a shorter dress. I made the mistake of shaving my underarms and then putting on deodorant. It burned. I won’t be making that mistake again. Except that I most likely, probably, definitely will. This black dress is from Stitches. I used to wear it a lot when I worked at Jacob Lingerie, because of our all black dress code. I had to wear a tank top under it today since I don’t quite fill it out enough. I think I made it work without one at Jacob Lingerie, since I invested in a lot of good pushup bras during my time there. And when you work at a lingerie store, plunging necklines aren’t a problem. This red necklace was a gift from my grandma. My bracelet is from Suzy Shier and my ring is from UBC. I don’t know if you can see my metal earrings, but one is the shape of a toothbrush, and the other is the shape of a tube of toothpaste. Because why not? I bought them at a Christmas craft fair at South Arm Community Centre last year. I wore them to my last dentist appointment because I could. That was a horrible appointment though, because I had to get a wisdom tooth removed, and I was awake, T3s don’t work for me so I had no painkillers, they had to cut away a lot of gums, and it was painful. I hate dentists. So I don’t know why I’d want a reminder of them in the form of jewellery. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
Red is supposed to be a bold, strong, confident colour. And why wouldn’t I want to exude those qualities? I bought this red sweater at Sears last year, before it closed down. A friend of mine had mentioned how stuff was on sale and how she bought clothes from the Jessica line so I decided to follow suit. The sweater with the roses was from the same kiosk in Metrotown where I bought my shiny scarves. I’m actually wearing matching red rose rain boots that I got from The Bay, but sadly they are not pictured here, as I do not have access to a full length mirror. I believe it was sunny that day, because of course it would be on a day when I wear rain boots. I think the black dress was actually from La Vie En Rose. Despite being a lingerie store, they surprisingly have a lot of clothing items that are perfectly acceptable for everyday wear. No one would know the difference. I just realized that I’m wearing a ROSE scarf with a dress from La Vie En ROSE. What a coincidence.
