Forty-first day of work selfie

I got this patterned top and this black sweater at Ross Dress For Less in the States.   I remember there were other colours of the sweater that I contemplated before deciding on the black one.  The white one was nice, but I knew I’d get it dirty.  I already had other black sweaters, but this one was special because of the little diamonds along the zipper.  I like how they match the ones on my necklace.  I love adding a little bit of sparkle to a darker outfit.  I think my hair may have still been wet in this picture.  Who has time to dry their hair in the morning?  I’d rather spend that time putting together an outfit.

Twentieth day of work selfie

I got this red dress from Forever 21 at Metrotown a few years ago.  I remember I was shopping with my friend at the time and when I asked what she thought of it, she said she didn’t like it.  But I liked it, so I bought it anyway.  I think I got the black sweater from Sirens, possibly when there was still a location at Richmond Centre.  I remember getting crappy service there, but I liked the stuff they sold.  The shiny red scarf is yet another from the kiosk at Metrotown.  They had a deal where the more you buy, the more you save, so of course I bought more.  I think the red earrings were from a kiosk in Lansdowne.  I remember I bought a necklace to match, but one day I wore it and then when I got home, the pendant was gone and I was left with just the chain.  So upsetting.

The shapes and patterns in this dress kind of make me think of modern art.

Seventeenth day of work selfie

This dress is also colourful, but I subdued it with a black sweater.  The dress is from one of my shopping excursions to the States when I made a stop at Ross Dress For Less.  The black sweater is from Forever 21.  I realize I’m no longer 21.  Although some people still think I look young.  The other day I was in my friend’s car and Taylor Swift’s song “22” was playing.  I don’t actually like Taylor Swift, but as I sat there I thought, “Yeah, 22 was actually a pretty good year.”  Or maybe it wasn’t and I just think it was.  All the years are kind of blending together for me now, so I don’t even know anymore.  The purple scarf is from Suzy Shier.  I miss when we used to have one at Richmond Centre.  Now I have to go all the way to Metrotown or Capilano Mall and that very rarely happens.  Maybe I shouldn’t have subdued the dress with darker colours.  Maybe next time I’ll pair it with something even brighter.  Whatever keeps me looking young, I guess.

Second day of work selfie

On my second day of work, I wore a new grey dress I bought at Old Navy with my super cash I had from all the money I spent there before Christmas. My metallic scarf is from a kiosk at Metrotown. My zippered black sweater is from Ross. I got the heart necklace at a Christmas Craft fair at Steveston Community Centre in Richmond. I bought a second ring from the vendor at the UBC student union building because one ring is never enough, despite what Lord of the Rings may have you believe.
