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-sixth day of work selfie

I love long dresses because you don’t have to shave and no one will know.  Unless you decide to blog about how you haven’t shaved.  I got this long dress at the Khatsahlano Street Festival on West 4th last month.  I’m used to buying a lot of shorter dresses, so this one was kind of different and I loved the colour scheme.  When I left the house this morning, my dad asked “New dress?” and I said “What do you mean by new?” and he said “You haven’t worn it to work yet?” and I said “Yeah.”  How much time has to pass before an item is no longer considered new?

I got this purple sweater at H&M at Richmond Centre.  My black necklace is from Claire’s and my black bracelet is from a Christmas craft fair at Stevetson Community Centre in Richmond last year.  My purple clothespin earrings and my purple ring are both from Greek Day on Broadway.  Sadly, my hair is no longer straight.  Because I washed it again and it takes a long ass time just to dry, so forget straightening.  But I think it’s still slightly less messy than it was when it was longer.

Ninety-second day of work selfie

I got this colourful dress at the Fiji Day festival at Swanguard Stadium in Burnaby a few weeks ago.  I wore it to the Vancouver Pride Parade on Sunday because it’s so bright and colourful.  My matching blue cardigan is from Ross Dress For Less in the States.  My necklace is from UBC and my earrings are from Claire’s.  My bracelet is from Sears and my ring is from the Blim Market festival downtown.  I finally washed my hair this weekend and then straightened it myself.  I will never be able to get it back to salon quality, but at least it still looks decent.  I got a shellac manicure and pedicure at Beauty Lounge in Richmond yesterday with a Groupon I bought.  This bright royal blue is my favourite colour.  Hopefully it will last for a while. 

Eighty-third day of work selfie 

I decided to wear this blue dress again since blue is my favourite colour.  I got it at Italian Day on Commercial Drive last month.  The matching blue sweater is from Forever 21 on Robson.  I got my blue necklace from Payless at Lansdowne Centre and my blue earrings from Claire’s on Granville.  I got my blue and gold bracelet is from the Khatsahlano Street Festival on West 4th a couple weekends ago.  I finally got myself a blue ring on Sunday at the Blim Market Festival downtown on Granville.  I like buying jewellery from local vendors that’s crafty and unique.  And my #SELFIE iPhone case is from the Aldo outlet store on Granville.

Seventy-fifth day of work selfie 

In keeping with the colourful dress theme, I decided to wear one of the dresses I bought at Italian Day on Commercial Drive a few weeks ago.  I paired it with my blue cardigan from Ross Dress For Less in the States.  My blue flower necklace is from UBC and my blue flip flop earrings are from Claire’s.  I got my blue bracelet at Suzy Shier and I got my green ring at Greek Day on Broadway a couple weeks ago.  I figured I would wear my short dresses while it’s still hot, since we’re expecting rain this weekend.  Finally.  But I’ll probably just continue to wear my short dresses even when it rains and the temperatures drop.  Because I can.

Seventy-fourth day of work selfie

I thought I’d wear another one of my colourful dresses again.  It’s possible that I got this dress from Winners but I’m really not sure.  I guess we’ll never know.  I got the sweater from H&M.  My pink bracelet is from a Christmas craft fair at Steveston Community Centre in Richmond.  My black beaded necklace and my small hoop earrings are from Claire’s.  And my ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day.  The guy eventually did respond to my message and said I could still exchange the rings for a bigger size at his next event.  But I’m not sure what his next event will be.  And I’ve already worn them.  And once the heat subsides, they may not be too tight.  So whatever.

Seventy-third day of work selfie

It’s about time I wore my most colourful dress again.  I got it in the States at Ross Dress For Less.  I wore it with a more colourful sweater this time, the purple one that I got at Urban Behavior at Metrotown.  Apparently there was a stabbing at Metrotown last week, outside Build-A-Bear.  I’m glad I generally keep my distance from that mall.  It’s actually a terrifying place sometimes.  I bought this purple necklace at Car Free Day on Main Street a couple weeks ago.  I like how it matches the purple ring I got at Greek Day on Broadway two Sundays ago.  I also got my purple clothespin earrings at Greek Day.  I guess you could say I’m wearing them ironically, since I don’t actually use clothespins and I hate doing laundry.  Maybe they could serve as a reminder for me when I forget to do my laundry? 

Seventy-second day of work selfie 

Oh my God, the smoke!  On the radio this morning, they were saying how it’ll be sunny today, but you won’t be able to see it through all the smoke.  It’s kind of cool in my office building so I’m still wearing sweaters inside.  I got this dress at Car Free Day on Denman a few weeks ago.  I thought it was a nice colour and nice design.  I got this sweater at Ross Dress For Less in the States a few years ago.  It’s not as thick as some of my other sweaters, so I thought it would be good for today.  My necklace is from UBC and my bracelet is from Dollarama.  My earrings are new, I got them at Car Free Day on Main Street a few weeks ago.  I got my ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day on Broadway a week ago.  I think it’ll fit a lot better in the winter when my fingers don’t swell so much from the heat.  

Sixty-fourth day of work selfie

Another blue dress from a street festival.  I got this one at Italian Day on Commercial Drive a couple weekends ago, along with the green dress that I wore last week.  The styles are similar, but different enough that I was fine with getting both.  I really like this colour blue and the designs that are on this dress.  It would’ve matched really well with the sweater I wore yesterday, but I didn’t want to wear the same sweater two days in a row if I could help it.  Instead, I paired it with this brown cardigan that I got from Bryan’s at Lansdowne Centre, since there is also brown in the dress.  My necklace is from Her Story Lockets and I got it at the PNE last year.  I actually ran into the girl who runs that business during Car Free Day on Denman Street and she remembered me because I was such a loyal customer.  My earrings are new, I got them at Car Free Day on Main Street on Sunday.   My ring is from UBC and my bracelet is from Sears.  And my nails are still looking good because I touched the up a little bit.  I may end up wearing even more blue outfits this week, because it’s my favourite colour, but also because I want my clothes to match my nails.  I guess purple would work too because they’re kind of purplish.  Or you know, I’ll just wear a different colour entirely.  Because really, who cares?
