I got this dress at H&M at Richmond Centre last week. It’s the same style as the one I have with the green leaves on it. I normally don’t like to buy things that are so similar, but this one was on sale for only $7, so I figure I couldn’t go wrong. It’s one of those dresses where it’s not my favourite, but it’s still nice. At first I thought it had pinecones on it, but now I think they’re actually pineapples. I paired it with my green Ross cardigan.
My black necklace is new. I got it at Greek Day on Broadway on Sunday. It was from the same vendor that I bought my purple necklace from. I got my green earrings from another vendor, also at Greek Day. They are little clothespins. I thought that was unique. My bracelet is from Dollarama. This green ring is from Boca Raton Designs, also at Greek Day. I was only going to buy the purple one, but the guy told me he’d give them to me for a bit less if I bought two. Yes, it’s tight, but I figure I’ll just wear them while I can, until one day my fingers swell and I’ll no longer be able to. But for now, I’m loving the bling. I’m also wearing new shoes today, but you can’t see them in this photo.
Oh my God, I’m actually wearing pants! I may or may not have run out of dresses at this point. Or the weather was getting better and I didn’t want to wear boots but I couldn’t find flats or other appropriate shoes to go with my dresses. My toenails are not currently ready for the public. Do you ever get annoyed and clip them, but then you keep going and clip them too close to the skin, and not even evenly? Or is that just something weird that I do? The point is, they’re too short right now, and my pinky toes barely even have a nail. I’ll have to wait until they grow to a decent length and then get myself a pedicure before I bust out the sandals. Also, I haven’t shaved my legs and the one pair of leggings I have are kind of thick, so yeah. Pants! I got these black pants the one time my friend took me to Marshalls after Pirate Pak Day at Whitespot. The purple top is from Ross Dress for Less in the States and the black cardigan is from Bryan’s at Lansdowne Centre. The scarf is from an Orb Warehouse sale. I guess I used to always buy scarves when I went to those. The necklace is from a Christmas craft fair I went to at Steveston Community Centre with my parents last year. I like that it’s adjustable so you can wear it at various lengths, long or short. Plus, it’s got just the right amount of bling. You can’t really tell from the picture, but my Claire’s earrings are in the shape of little black safety pins. And for added bling, my UBC SUB ring and my dollar store bracelet. Because that’s how classy I am.
I hate pants because it’s so damn hard to find a pair that actually fit. So you’ll likely be seeing a lot of these ones until I miraculously find a new pair.
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.
I started a new job a couple weeks ago. And I took a selfie that morning because I wanted to show off the new blazer that I bought. Vero Moda from Winners. I feel like the colour is perfect for spring and I love that it has zippered pockets. The blue dress I wore with it is from Costa Blanca, and the scarf is from Orb. I bought the green and gold necklace and the ring from a vendor in the student union building at UBC because I thought I should treat myself to some bling. I decided to continue taking selfies everyday, mostly for Instagram, but also Facebook and Twitter. Since I’ve decided to try blogging again, why not also share them on WordPress?
