Sixty-first day of work selfie

So you can’t really tell from the photo, but this dress is long and almost goes down to my ankles.  Well not quite, but it would if I were shorter.  I don’t tend to wear a lot of long dresses, because I always find they look weird for some reason, but maybe that’s just because I’m not used to wearing them.  I got this one from Ross Dress For Less in the States and this is my first time wearing it.  I’ve decided I like long dresses now.  I heard it was going to be cold and rainy today.  It wasn’t this morning, but it is now.  I didn’t want to wear pants, and I didn’t want to re-shave my legs, so this dress worked out well.  You might not be able to see in the picture, but the dress has black and grey stripes across it.  I wore grey in honour of the new Fifty Shades of Grey book that was released today.  No, I’m kidding, I totally didn’t, it was just a coincidence.  Why would I want to celebrate such a gross insult to literature?  I heard that this new version is even worse than the original and I have no idea how that’s even possible.  I tried to read the first book and couldn’t because I was just so shocked and disgusted by the horrible grammar and writing style.  Anyway, since I knew it would get cooler today, I paired this dress with my purple jacket that I got at the Plenty warehouse sale and the Vancouver Convention Centre during Easter weekend this year.  I love it for its unique zippers and pockets.  My necklace is from Her Story Lockets and I got it when they had a booth at the PNE Marketplace last summer, and my lock earrings are from another booth that was also at the PNE during that time.  And my ring, of course, is from UBC.  

I wish the lighting was better so you could actually see the dress properly.  And I wish I had a full length mirror.  Oh well.

Sixteenth day of work selfie

I love this dress.  I got it on sale at Reitmans.  The first time I ever wore it was to an Elton John concert last year and then I’m not sure if I’ve worn it again since then.  I got the pink cardigan from The Plenty warehouse sale at the Vancouver Convention Centre during Easter weekend.  After taking this selfie, I noticed, to my horror, that there was a small hole  on the back of the sweater that I hadn’t noticed earlier.  This was my first time wearing it too.  Just my luck that something I bought from a warehouse sale would have a defect and be non-refundable.  But despite the hole, I plan to wear the hell out it anyway.  Because I can.  In keeping with my flower theme, I wore this red rose ring that I bought at the Make It Vancouver Christmas craft fair a couple years ago.  And in keeping with the bright colours of this outfit, I wore my sparkly blue scarf and flower necklace.  My sister asked me if this was the most colourful outfit I’ve ever worn to work.  I think it is.  So far, anyway.  Who knows what the future will hold?
