I went with classic black and white today. This top is from Costa Blanca. My friend gave it to me for my birthday a few years ago. My black sweater is from Forever 21 and my black pants are from Old Navy. I think black pants and a black sweater are two essential components of any wardrobe. But I’m glad I don’t have a dress code that requires me to wear them on a daily basis like I did at Jacob. My long necklace is from Payless. I remember when I was walking down Main Street on Car Free Day, looking at the jewellery in one of the booths, the woman there said she liked my necklace and asked where I got it. When I told her Payless, she was like “What? Payless? Really?” in a confused and judgemental tone. I thought “Really, you’re judging me for where I bought my jewellery even though you yourself said it was nice?”. I didn’t buy anything from her. I did buy these white earrings from another vendor at Car Free Day though. I got my bracelet at Carnaval del Sol on Sunday and my ring at UBC a while ago.
I got this floral pattered dress from Costa Blanca, when we still had one at Richmond Centre. I used to only wear it for special occasions, like Easter Mass, or my brother’s high school graduation, but it’s casual enough for everyday wear. It’s one of those dresses where it’s like slightly too short to wear without leggings. I had become so used to wearing darker colours in previous jobs and I like being able to wear something colourful. I got this purple sweater from Urban Behavior at Metrotown. I like how my blue flower necklace kind of blends into a lot of my outfits. The purple scarf is from Suzy Shier. I’m not sure where exactly I got the earrings from. But I like them and I tend to wear a lot of small, light, dangly earrings. I think they were either from this random place in the States that sells hair products, or from a kiosk at Lansdowne. Or from somewhere else entirely. All that matters is they look good and complement many of my outfits.
I started a new job a couple weeks ago. And I took a selfie that morning because I wanted to show off the new blazer that I bought. Vero Moda from Winners. I feel like the colour is perfect for spring and I love that it has zippered pockets. The blue dress I wore with it is from Costa Blanca, and the scarf is from Orb. I bought the green and gold necklace and the ring from a vendor in the student union building at UBC because I thought I should treat myself to some bling. I decided to continue taking selfies everyday, mostly for Instagram, but also Facebook and Twitter. Since I’ve decided to try blogging again, why not also share them on WordPress?
