One hundredth day of work selfie

After all that colour, I thought I would go back to classic black and white.  I got this dress from the Guess outlet store in Las Vegas last year.  It’s a really nice summer dress, but I don’t wear it that often because I don’t wear white that often.  Because I’m a messy person and white always gets dirty.  Like I just noticed a tiny blue spot at the bottom of the dress.  I have no idea what it is.  Nail polish maybe?  I can’t think of any other blue substance this dress may have come into contact with.  It’s very small and unnoticeable though, thankfully.  Wait, I think I’ve gone and stained it slightly in another spot with avocado from lunch.  Damnit.  I knew this would happen.

My black blazer is new.  I got it from Winners.  It was just so snazzy looking that I had to try it on.  I had intended to save it for the fall, but it was cool enough out today that I thought I would bring it out early.  Everyone needs a black blazer as part of their professional wardrobe.

I got my necklace from Sears and my earrings from Payless.  My shiny bracelet is from Car Free Day on Main Street and my shiny black ring is from Carnaval del Sol at Conford Pacific Place.  Black and white doesn’t have to be dull if you glam it up a bit.

Ninety-seventh day of work selfie

Red is a strong and bold colour, so why not wear it as often as you can?  This dress is more of an orangey red, but it’s still a good red.  I got this dress from my favourite street festival vendor at Carnaval del Sol at Pacific Conford Place.  It is the same style as my favourite blue dress, but with the added designs and peacock feathers on the bottom.  I love this style because you don’t even have to worry about a back and a front because it’s exactly the same either way you put it on.  And it’s so comfortable and stretchy and flowy.

I got my red sweater from Sirens, I think.  I just noticed there is sadly a hole in the sleeve.  So I did what any capable adult would do, and I stapled that hole shut in my office.  I’m ever so resourceful with my office supplies.  I got my necklace from Greek Day on Broadway and my earrings from Car Free Day on Main Street.  I got my ring from UBC.  I don’t actually know where I got my bracelet from.  It just sort of turned up and I was like alright, I’ll wear it.   

Ninety-fifth day of work selfie

I got this dress at the Caribbean Days festival at Waterfront Park in North Vancouver a few weeks ago.  It was the same day that I got my haircut.  I liked this dress because I thought it was really unique and I don’t own anything else like it.  My black sweater is from Forever 21.  My necklace is from Sears and my earrings are from Car Free Day on Main Street.  My bracelet is from Carnaval del Sol at Pacific Concord Place and my ring is from the Blim Market festival downtown. 

Ninety-first day of work selfie

I got this dress at H&M.  I may or may not have bought it specifically for Canada Day because it’s red and white.  I wore it on the first day of the month, so why not wear it again on the last day of the month?  I got my black sweater from Suzy Shier.  My necklace is from Fan Expo and my earrings are from Claire’s.  My bracelet is from Sears and my ring is from UBC.  I tried touching up my nails with glitter polish but they’re still pretty chipped.  I restraightened my hair again, but it keeps unintentionally flipping out at the bottom.

I’m wearing makeup today because it’s my birthday.  Or at least I was.  Let me tell you how I failed today.  I bought this new fiber lash mascara on Car Free Day and decided to try it out this morning.  But I screwed that up and ended up having a huge amount of fibers just getting in my eyes.  All morning it was irritating me and then I looked in the mirror and noticed my eye was red.  It was early afternoon and I had no makeup remover with me, so I had to attempt to remove all my eye makeup with a paper towel and water.  And of course I was wearing a lot of it.  I’m pretty sure there are still some fibers stuck in my eyes and now there are darker circles under my eyes and it probably looks like I’ve been crying.  So my review of fiber lash mascara, is don’t do it, especially if you’re prone to  screwing things up.  At least with my eye being red, it matches my dress?

Eighty-second day of work selfie

And we’re back to dresses.  I got this dress at a vendor at Fiji Day at Swanguard Stadium in Burnaby on Saturday.  My sister was working at the event at the face painting booth, and my dad was like “Are you going?  Don’t you go to all the festivals?” so I decided to check it out.  I’m annoyed, because I have two other dresses in this style, that I got from the vendor I usually buy from at street festivals.  Why am I annoyed?  Because the vendor I bought this new dress from on Saturday sells the same style of dresses for less than half the price that I’ve been paying at the other place.  They didn’t have as many different kinds though.  I have the same dress in red, but slightly shorter, which I was actually wearing when I bought this one.  There was a black and grey one as well, but my friend bought it, so I went with the brown one.  I like that they’re easy to just try on over what you’re already wearing, and that they’re stretchy and one size fits all.   My blue cardigan is from Forever 21.  I got my necklace from Payless and my earrings from a vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street.  My bracelet is from a vendor at Carnaval del Sol a couple weekends ago, and my ring is from a vendor at the Blim Market Festival on Granville Street that I went to yesterday.  I also go a new iPhone case at Aldo yesterday.  My hand is covering it, but it says #SELFIE on it.  I felt like that was appropriate for me.

Eighty-first day of work selfie

This has been a week of pants.  Because why not?  I got this top from an Orb warehouse sale a few years ago.  My green cardigan is from Ross Dress For Less and my black pants are from Old Navy.  My green leaf necklace is from UBC and my green earrings are from Car Free Day on Main Street.  My matching bracelet is from Dollarama and my green ring is from Greek Day on Broadway.  And I totally left my ring in my office and forgot about it.  I didn’t realize it until I was already at the bus stop, suddenly aware of my naked finger.  That ring is my blingiest one, so now my weekend will be filled with less bling than it otherwise could have.  I’ll have to make up for it in some other way.

Eightieth day of work selfie 

I went with classic black and white today.  This top is from Costa Blanca.  My friend gave it to me for my birthday a few years ago.  My black sweater is from Forever 21 and my black pants are from Old Navy.  I think black pants and a black sweater are two essential components of any wardrobe.  But I’m glad I don’t have a dress code that requires me to wear them on a daily basis like I did at Jacob.  My long necklace is from Payless.  I remember when I was walking down Main Street on Car Free Day, looking at the jewellery in one of the booths, the woman there said she liked my necklace and asked where I got it.  When I told her Payless, she was like “What?  Payless?  Really?” in a confused and judgemental tone.  I thought “Really, you’re judging me for where I bought my jewellery even though you yourself said it was nice?”.  I didn’t buy anything from her.  I did buy these white earrings from another vendor at Car Free Day though.  I got my bracelet at Carnaval del Sol on Sunday and my ring at UBC a while ago.
