Ninety-eighth day of work selfie

This dress isn’t new, I just haven’t worn it in a while.  I got it at Suzy Shier a few years ago.  Pink and orange have never really been colours I wear a lot of, although I have been wearing more pink this summer.  I don’t own very many orange clothes.  But I like this dress.  My navy blue cardigan is from La Vie En Rose.  I don’t have any orange sweaters, and I felt if I wore my pink one it would just be too bright of an outfit.  My pink flip flop necklace is from UBC and my pink flip flop earrings are from Claire’s.  I really like these pieces of jewellery because they showcase my love for shoes without me having to actually buy a new pair of shoes.  My pink bracelet is from a Christmas craft fair at Steveston Community centre in Richmond last year and my orange ring is from the Greek Day street festival on West Broadway in June.

Ninety-sixth day of work selfie

I love long dresses because you don’t have to shave and no one will know.  Unless you decide to blog about how you haven’t shaved.  I got this long dress at the Khatsahlano Street Festival on West 4th last month.  I’m used to buying a lot of shorter dresses, so this one was kind of different and I loved the colour scheme.  When I left the house this morning, my dad asked “New dress?” and I said “What do you mean by new?” and he said “You haven’t worn it to work yet?” and I said “Yeah.”  How much time has to pass before an item is no longer considered new?

I got this purple sweater at H&M at Richmond Centre.  My black necklace is from Claire’s and my black bracelet is from a Christmas craft fair at Stevetson Community Centre in Richmond last year.  My purple clothespin earrings and my purple ring are both from Greek Day on Broadway.  Sadly, my hair is no longer straight.  Because I washed it again and it takes a long ass time just to dry, so forget straightening.  But I think it’s still slightly less messy than it was when it was longer.

Ninety-fourth day of work selfie 

I got this long dress at Ross Dress For Less in the States a few years ago but I never really wore it.  I’m just not used to long dresses, but I’m beginning to like them more now.  My black cardigan is from Sirens.  My pink flip flop necklace is from UBC and my pink flip flop earrings are from Claire’s.  My bracelet is from a Christmas craft fair at Steveston Community Centre in Richmond and my ring is from the Greek Day street festival on West Broadway.  My nails still match this outfit because there is a little bit of blue in my dress. 

Ninetieth day of work selfie

I’m happy to report that there have been no wardrobe malfunctions today.  Yet.  Perhaps I can make it through the whole day without incident.  I got this purple dress at the Fiji Day festival at Swanguard Stadium in Burnaby a few weeks ago.  It was at this point that my friend yelled at me for buying too many dresses.  She later apologized and said she only yelled because she was hungry.  But she’s right, I do have a lot of summer dresses now.  But that’s pretty much all I wear right now.  Most people have several pairs of jeans and several pairs of shorts.  I don’t.  I have my dresses.

I got this white sweater at Old Navy at Richmond Centre.  I don’t wear white that often.  I never really thought it looked that good on me, and it also tends to get dirty rather quickly.  I got my necklace at the Blim Market festival downtown a few weeks ago.  Wait, I lied when I said there had been no malfunctions today.  As I was walking down the hall earlier, I kicked something on the floor.  It was the pendant of my necklace that had somehow fallen off.  Luckily, I was able to put it back on the chain.  I may need to get some pliers to secure it and ensure it doesn’t fall off again.

I got my earrings at Claire’s and my iPhone case at Aldo, both downtown.   I got my bracelet at Carnaval del Sol at Pacific Concord Place a few weeks ago.  I don’t have any purple bracelets so I decided to go with white.  My ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day.  My nail polish is chipping at an alarming rate.  I should’ve put on a top coat sooner.  Does my hair look dirty to you?  That’s because it is.  And I like it that way.

Eighty-ninth day of work selfie 

I had some wardrobe malfunctions this morning right before I left the house.  It’s a good thing it didn’t happen after I’d already left.  But I didn’t have time to change my outfit.  Nor did I want to.  I got this dress from a vendor at the Caribbean Days Festival at Waterfront Park in North Vancouver on the weekend.  The guy actually had a small fitting room, so I didn’t have to try on dresses over my clothes like I normally do at street festivals.  This was one of the three dresses I bought, and I think the nicest of them.  I really like the blues and the greens and the different lengths at the bottom of the dress.

But this morning, the left strap broke completely off.  I have no idea how it tore in two places, but somehow it did.  All I had at my disposal was a large safety pin and a small bobby pin.  I somehow managed to reattach the strap and secure it in place with these two items.  I’m resourceful, like Macgyver.  I obviously did a bad job of it, because you can still see the bobby pin and the safety pin.  But I mean it’s just for now, so that I could wear the dress today.  Eventually I will have to attempt to sew the strap back on.  Or get someone else with better sewing skills to do it for me.

For now, you can’t tell anything is wrong because I’ve covered it with my green Jacob cardigan.  I got one of my bracelets at Sears and the other one at Suzy Shier.  My green ring is from Greek Day on Broadway and my blue ring is from the Blim Market Festival on Granville.  My necklace is from Payless and my earrings are from Greek Day.  My hair is definitely becoming less and less straight, but I’d like to think it still looks good.  I tried to touch up my nails again so that they can look good while matching my outfit.  I’m wearing makeup because it’s my birthday week and I can.

Eighty-eighth day of work selfie 

My pineapple dress is from H&M and my grey sweater is from Jacob.  My necklace is from UBC and my bracelet is from Dollarama.  My ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day and my #SELFIE iPhone case is from Aldo.  I got these earrings at Claire’s.  They have cats on them.  Because why not?  I’m not a cat lady.  I’ve never even owned a pet.  But if I were to ever own one in the future, it would most likely be a cat.  I haven’t washed my hair since I got it cut on Saturday.  And I don’t plan on doing so anytime soon.  I’m still trying to figure out the longest amount of time I can possibly go without washing it.  I also painted my nails.  Badly.  They’ll most likely be chipped by tomorrow.  But my hair looks good, so nothing else matters, right?

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.
