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-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-seventh day of work selfie

I got a haircut a couple days ago at Salon Prive on Arbutus.  I had a Groupon for a haircut and highlights.  So you no longer have to see my long, messy, frizzy hair.  Apparently that trend didn’t catch on for some reason.  I bought this dress from my favourite vendor at the Khatsahlano Street Festival a few weeks ago.  My black sweater is from Sirens.  I got my necklace at the Blim Market Festival downtown a couple weeks ago and my bracelet from Sears.  My earrings and my ring are from Greek Day on Broadway a few weeks ago.   

Now I’m going to see how many days I can possibly go without washing my hair in order to maintain this current look.

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-ninth day of work selfie

I don’t know where I got this light pink top from.  I’m going to take a guess and say Urban Planet?  The navy blue cardigan is from Bryan’s and the black pants are from Old Navy.  I got my necklace from my favourite street vendor at Greek Day on Broadway and I got my earrings from another vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street.  My bracelet is from Suzy Shier.  My black ring is from my favourite street vendor who was also at Carnaval Del Sol.  I thought I would give my ring finger a rest and accessorize my middle finger instead.

Seventy-first day of work selfie

I got this dress at Car Free Day on Commercial Drive a couple weeks ago.  It’s a bit longer than my other dresses and stops right at my knees.  Which is kind of weird, because it feels like it should be right above or right below.  Like either cover my knees or don’t.  It’s probably meant to be a full length dress on a short girl.  I tried it on over my own dress at at Car Free Day.  There was a mirror, but it was kind of low down, so I crouched down on the street to see how it looked.  I paired it with my favourite blue sweater from Forever 21.  My necklace is from Payless and my earrings are from a vendor at Greek Day.  I wish they’d had the earrings in the same blue as my necklace.  They are a bit heavy, but I don’t care because I love them.  They were similar enough to my necklace that I thought they would go together.  I’m constantly wearing mismatched sets, and pairing gold jewellery with silver jewellery.  But I like it that way.  My blue bracelet is from Sears and my green ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day.  I wanted a blue one, but the blue ring they had was even smaller than this and wouldn’t have even fit on my finger, let alone been too tight.  The little bit of what’s left of my chipped nail polish matches my outfit.  I’m wearing another pair of new shoes today as well, but again, you can’t see them.

Forty-third day of work selfie

I am just so in love with this colour.  This bright royal blue is my absolute favourite.  I bought this blazer when I was shopping with my friend at Forever 21 downtown on Robson street on St. Patrick’s Day.  Yeah, while everyone else was out drinking in bars, we were out shopping for clothes.  Because that’s what we do.  It was the day before my last day of work at my previous job and I thought I ought to buy some more professional looking clothing for my new job.  This blazer didn’t have a price tag on it, but it turned out to be a decent price for a blazer.   I remember while we were there, my friend found a shirt that said “Leave me alone” and suggested I should wear it as a joke on my last day of work.  Unfortunately, they didn’t have it in my size.

I got the black top at Sears at Richmond Centre before they closed down.  I think my dad actually bought it for me because he had a Sears card so he could get a discount.  My navy blue floral scarf is probably the best thing I ordered from Avon.

I got this necklace from Her Story Lockets when they had a booth set up at the PNE Marketplace last year.  You get to choose which charms you want to put inside the locket to create your own unique, personalized look.  I bought some for friends and family as well, because I think it’s really neat idea and makes a cool gift for someone when you can use charms that reflect who they are.  Mine include shoes, shopping bags, a big sister heart, a camera, and my birthstone. I wish I could find more items in this kind of blue.
