I’m happy to report that there have been no wardrobe malfunctions today. Yet. Perhaps I can make it through the whole day without incident. I got this purple dress at the Fiji Day festival at Swanguard Stadium in Burnaby a few weeks ago. It was at this point that my friend yelled at me for buying too many dresses. She later apologized and said she only yelled because she was hungry. But she’s right, I do have a lot of summer dresses now. But that’s pretty much all I wear right now. Most people have several pairs of jeans and several pairs of shorts. I don’t. I have my dresses.
I got this white sweater at Old Navy at Richmond Centre. I don’t wear white that often. I never really thought it looked that good on me, and it also tends to get dirty rather quickly. I got my necklace at the Blim Market festival downtown a few weeks ago. Wait, I lied when I said there had been no malfunctions today. As I was walking down the hall earlier, I kicked something on the floor. It was the pendant of my necklace that had somehow fallen off. Luckily, I was able to put it back on the chain. I may need to get some pliers to secure it and ensure it doesn’t fall off again.
I got my earrings at Claire’s and my iPhone case at Aldo, both downtown. I got my bracelet at Carnaval del Sol at Pacific Concord Place a few weeks ago. I don’t have any purple bracelets so I decided to go with white. My ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day. My nail polish is chipping at an alarming rate. I should’ve put on a top coat sooner. Does my hair look dirty to you? That’s because it is. And I like it that way.
Okay, so this isn’t my favourite outfit and the colours are all kind of dark. But not everyday can be expected to be bright and colourful. I got this plaid, button down dress from an Orb warehouse sale at Delta Town and Country Inn a few years ago. I’m generally not a fan of plaid at all and this is one of the few plaid items I actually own. It was in a box of stuff that was marked 2 for $10, so how could I not buy it? The brown sweater is from Bryan’s at Lansdowne Centre. This olive green scarf is from a three pack I ordered from Avon. The key and flower necklace is from Claire’s. Sadly, the chain actually broke at the back, so now instead of fastening it with the clasp, I had to actually tie a knot in the chain to keep it together. But you can’t tell so it’s fine. I don’t know if you can tell from the picture, but the green earrings I’m wearing, also from Claire’s, are tiny zippers. I always get comments on them when I wear them since it’s something different. I have a love/hate relationship with zippers, and these earrings are symbolic of that. I think my hatred of plaid stems from my having to wear a plaid kilt for five years in high school.
