Fifty-second day of work selfie

I decided to wear another dress on Friday, despite the fact that my leg hair was growing back.  It’s a slightly longer dress, and I figure most people aren’t looking closely at the bottom half of my legs, so it’s fine.  I got this dress at Suzy Shier at Capilano Mall a couple years ago.  Normally, pleated skirts make me think of old lady outfits or my kilt from my high school uniform, but I like it on this dress.  Floral patterns on black dresses are my favourite.  I got this green cardigan at Ross Dress For Less in the States.  I pretty much like to wear my blue flower necklace from UBC whenever I have similar flowers in my outfit.  This ring is also from UBC, and has unfortunately lost a stone.  But you can’t tell unless you look at it really closely.  I guess that’s what happens when you buy a cheap $15 ring in a student union building.  But as long as the main stone in the middle stays intact, I will continue to wear it and get my money’s worth.  My earrings are either from a mall kiosk or a hair product store, and my bracelet is from Dollarama.  Can chipped nail polish please become a new trend?  Because I would love that so much.  I had gone seven days at this point without washing my hair.  I know that may seem unacceptable to some of you, but look how good it looks.  I mean, it’s not stunning, but it’s so neat and smooth.  I knew I would be sad upon washing it again and succumbing to the inevitable frizz.

Forty-seventh day of work selfie

I got this blue top from Suzy Shier.  I also have it in black, but they were like $5 each, so why would I not buy more than one?  I think it was at Richmond Centre before they closed so maybe that’s why it was so cheap.  My purple sweater is from Urban Behavior in Metrotown.  Blue and purple are two of my favourite colours and I love pairing them together.  My jewellery includes my Swarovski necklace, Claire’s earrings, UBC ring, and Dollarama bracelet.  It’s getting warmer so I may not be wearing these Marshalls pants for much longer.  

Thirty-fourth day of work selfie

This white top is so old that I bought it at Mariposa.  Does that store even exist anymore?  That used to be one of my go to stores when I was a lot younger because it was cheap.  Like, my dress for my graduation from elementary school was purchased from there.  And then I continued shopping there in high school.  I’m just surprised this top is still white after all these years.  I repeated this blue Sears sweater because I only have so many sweaters.  I think this scarf was from another Orb warehouse sale.  Speaking of which, there was one this weekend in Delta.  But no, I didn’t go.  I own too much from there already.  Marshalls pants because they’re the only ones that really fit.  Blue sparkly jewellery just goes best with this sweater.  Necklace and ring from UBC, earrings probably from a kiosk, bracelet from the dollar store.

What’s worse, dollar store jewellery, or a top that’s over ten years old?

Twenty-sixth day of work selfie

Another dress with flowers on it.  Also from the Orb warehouse sale I went to at the Delta Town and Country Inn.  Dresses were 3 for $50, and this was one of them.  It originally had a belt, or more like a thin rope that tied around the middle.  But I’ve somehow pretty much lost all the belts I own.  Maybe they’ll turn up someday.  Or maybe they won’t.  But I don’t need them anyhow.  The blue dress is from Forever 21 at Metrotown and the matching blue scarf is from Suzy Shier.  And I’m repeating my blue and teal jewellery because these items just happen to match the majority of my outfits.  Full disclosure, I got this bracelet from the dollar store at Lansdowne Centre and I’m not ashamed.  Why should I pay a lot of money for a nice bracelet when I can get one at Dollarama for $2.50? Sometimes the dollar store has nickel free jewellery too.  Dollar stores have come a long way, especially since most items there are no longer just a dollar.  There are still items there that I refuse to buy, like underwear or off brand food.  But there’s no shame in buying something you think is nice just because it’s being sold at a cheap place.
