Fifty-fourth day of work selfie

Its annoying how almost all of my dresses are too short to wear without leggings.  This one is just long enough.  You know how some places make pants in a long or tall size?  Can they make dresses like that as well?  I remember one time in high school, my friend let me borrow her short skirt, but on me it was more like a mini skirt.  I remember saying that a long skirt for her would be a short skirt for me, a short skirt for her would be a mini skirt for me, and a mini skirt for her would basically be a belt for me.

I asked my mom if this dress was too short when I was leaving the house and she was like “Just be careful when you’re sitting down, especially on the bus.”  I told her I probably wouldn’t get a seat anyway, so it would be fine.  The worst thing about wearing a short dress is having your legs directly against the gross bus seats when you sit down.  My friend told me to do the finger length test and put my arms by my side, and if the dress was past my fingers, then it was fine.  Is that an actual thing that people do?  Apparently they used to make employees do that when I worked at Jacob.  I don’t remember though, I guess I mostly wore pants there.

I got this purple dress from Urban Behavior at Metrotown (It always bothers me to write “Behavior” without a “u” in it).  I got the tank top underneath it from Jacob, when I worked at the Richmond Centre location before they went out of business.  The dress is really thin and would possibly be a bit see-through without it.  In which case, the length would no longer matter.  I got the floral jacket from Suzy Shier at Capilano mall.  My mom asked me if it was new. It’s not, but this is only the second time I’ve worn it.  The necklace and bracelet are both from Claires, the ring is from UBC, and the music note earrings are from a booth outside the PNE Marketplace.  My continually chipping nail polish matches my outfit again.  I really like that colour.  But apparently not enough to maintain a proper manicure.

Eighteenth day of work selfie

This blue dress was the first thing I ever bought at Aritzia.  I never shop there, but I was at the mall several years ago with a couple of my friends who loved the store.  They both owned this style of dress in other colours.  I think a lot of people did at the time.  It was expensive for my price range, but this blue one happened to be on sale.  It was only like $10 off, but that was better than nothing.  I think it was $55 on sale for $45, or something like that.  I’m really glad I bought it because I’ve gotten so much use out of it over the years, and it’s my main go to casual dress when I have nothing to wear.  I got this purple sweater and the new H&M at Richmond Centre, when I decided to finally venture in there and actually try something on.  I remember trying to take a selfie in the fitting room, but I couldn’t because my phone was so full that there was no storage left even to take just one photo.  I really liked the colour, but I wasn’t a fan of the sleeves looking like they’re ripped at the cuffs.  Is that a new trend?  But I was willing to overlook it, because one can never have too many sweaters.  I got this scarf at one of the vendors in the UBC student union building a while ago.  I feel like I will never not buy scarves at UBC as long as I’m there.

Eleventh day of work selfie

As you can see, I’m all about the blue.  I got this dress from the Ross Dress for Less store on the Vegas strip a couple years ago.  I can’t quite remember where I got the black sweater, but I’m going to say Sears.  And the blue scarf was from that kiosk in Metrotown.  I tried looking up the name of it but to no avail.  It may have had the word fashion in it?  Or beauty?  Or boutique?  Or maybe none of those words.  Who knows?  I just know that it’s the same type of blue as this dress which is why I wore it that day.Do I really need to explain my fashion choices to you?
