Fifty-third day of work selfie

So for some reason I thought this dress was longer than it actually is.  Since it is in fact, above the knee, I had to quickly (badly) shave my legs a bit this morning in order to make wearing a dress acceptable.  I long for the day when hairy legs on women are no longer an issue.  Will that day ever come?  Or am I doomed to shave everyday for the rest of my life?  On Friday, I had thought about wearing this dress, but decided on a different one.  And it was a good decision too, since I found myself sitting beside a girl who was wearing this very dress on the way to work.  I’m glad we managed to avoid a “who wore it better?” competition on the bus.  I figured if that girl were on the bus again this morning, she wouldn’t be wearing the same outfit again so soon.  And I hoped that no one else would either.  I got the dress at H&M at Pacific Centre a couple months ago.  The matching green sweater is from Old Navy at Richmond Centre.  My necklace and ring are from UBC, my earrings are from a kiosk at Lansdowne Centre, and my bracelet is from Dollarama at Landosowne Centre.  After seven days, I finally washed my hair on Saturday.  As you can see, it is no longer straight.  I’m fine with my natural waves, I just wish there wasn’t so much frizz. 

Maybe the reason why I thought this dress was longer is because it was longer on that other woman who wore it. I should know by now that any dress is a short dress when I wear it.

Fifty-second day of work selfie

I decided to wear another dress on Friday, despite the fact that my leg hair was growing back.  It’s a slightly longer dress, and I figure most people aren’t looking closely at the bottom half of my legs, so it’s fine.  I got this dress at Suzy Shier at Capilano Mall a couple years ago.  Normally, pleated skirts make me think of old lady outfits or my kilt from my high school uniform, but I like it on this dress.  Floral patterns on black dresses are my favourite.  I got this green cardigan at Ross Dress For Less in the States.  I pretty much like to wear my blue flower necklace from UBC whenever I have similar flowers in my outfit.  This ring is also from UBC, and has unfortunately lost a stone.  But you can’t tell unless you look at it really closely.  I guess that’s what happens when you buy a cheap $15 ring in a student union building.  But as long as the main stone in the middle stays intact, I will continue to wear it and get my money’s worth.  My earrings are either from a mall kiosk or a hair product store, and my bracelet is from Dollarama.  Can chipped nail polish please become a new trend?  Because I would love that so much.  I had gone seven days at this point without washing my hair.  I know that may seem unacceptable to some of you, but look how good it looks.  I mean, it’s not stunning, but it’s so neat and smooth.  I knew I would be sad upon washing it again and succumbing to the inevitable frizz.
