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.

Thirty-ninth day of work selfie

While I love colourful things, sometimes simple, classic black and white is just perfect for the day.  I think I got this top with the black and white stripes from Suzy Shier.  I love that it’s more than just basic stripes, and how they go every which way.  I have dress with a similar pattern to this one.  I think the zipper is a nice added touch, even though it serves no purpose other than to just be there.  My black Bryan’s cardigan is my go to piece when I’m not sure what else might match a shirt or dress.  I think my fancy necklace from the Steveston Community Centre Christmas craft fair compliments this outfit nicely.  My small, circular earring studs have the letter D on them.  I got these initial earrings at Icing.  Maybe I felt like wearing black and white that day because I’d just watched a Michael Jackson documentary that weekend?
