Some days you just don’t feel like wearing bright colours, so I decided to wear this navy blue Ross dress. Since I lack the boobs to fill it out, I wore this black Walrmart tank top underneath it. In keeping with darker colours, I wore it with my brown and gold Aritzia sweater. Actually, now that I’m looking at it, I think the sweater might actually be black, but the gold sparkles cause it to look brown? I figure I should wear a few dark coloured outfits before it gets too unbearably hot and I won’t be able to. I decided to wear silver jewellery to add some shine to this outfit, with my Payless heart necklace and earrings. And then my Suzy Shier bracelet and my UBC ring.
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.
This dress is also colourful, but I subdued it with a black sweater. The dress is from one of my shopping excursions to the States when I made a stop at Ross Dress For Less. The black sweater is from Forever 21. I realize I’m no longer 21. Although some people still think I look young. The other day I was in my friend’s car and Taylor Swift’s song “22” was playing. I don’t actually like Taylor Swift, but as I sat there I thought, “Yeah, 22 was actually a pretty good year.” Or maybe it wasn’t and I just think it was. All the years are kind of blending together for me now, so I don’t even know anymore. The purple scarf is from Suzy Shier. I miss when we used to have one at Richmond Centre. Now I have to go all the way to Metrotown or Capilano Mall and that very rarely happens. Maybe I shouldn’t have subdued the dress with darker colours. Maybe next time I’ll pair it with something even brighter. Whatever keeps me looking young, I guess.
