I literally bought this dress at Winners the day before I wore it. I had tried it on over the weekend and regrettably not bought it, so when I went back to look for it and it was still there, I knew that it was meant to be. I just fell in love with the shape and the pattern and everything about it. I paired it with my pink cardigan from the Plenty Warehouse sale, because I felt like it matched well, and I had vowed to wear the hell out of it. I was going to the New Kids On the Block concert right after work that day, so I wanted an outfit that was fun. My shiny metallic scarf is pretty much my concert scarf because I like that it stands out. I got my heart necklace from a vendor at Fan Expo Vancouver this year, which was the same weekend as the Plenty sale. I like the style because it’s supposed to be like those life hearts in video games. My earrings are from Claire’s, my ring is from UBC, and I do believe that is another dollar store bracelet. Still not ashamed.
I bought this dress during one of my Vegas trips at a random store on the Vegas strip. It was one of those shops where they sell souvenir Vegas t-shirts and stuff like that. I like dresses and tops in this style because they’re so stretchy and flowy and comfortable (WordPress is indicating to me that “flowy” is not a word, and tried to autocorrect it to “flawy” instead. What the hell is flawy? And yes, flowy is a word. This dress is not flawy, if anything, it’s flawless. It’s like there’s a whole damn garden on the bottom of my dress.). I was going to pair it with my orange scarf to match the flowers and butterflies, but I couldn’t find it so I settled for this green one that I got from an Orb Warehouse sale. I got this denim jacket from GUESS at Richmond Centre. I don’t wear jeans anymore, but I still like to rock the jean jackets every now and then. I never really shopped at GUESS until I won a gift card at a shopping event at Pacific Centre a few years ago and spent most of it at that store. Ever since, it’s been one of my favourites, but I try to only buy stuff there when it’s on sale. Since the dress looks kind of fancy, I thought maybe the denim would tone it down a bit for more of casual look. Since there’s already so much colour going on in the outfit, I thought mostly silver jewellery would be best, with my Payless heart necklace and my Supernatural Fan Expo angel wing earrings. Because butterfly wings don’t have to be the only type of wings in an outfit.
On my second day of work, I wore a new grey dress I bought at Old Navy with my super cash I had from all the money I spent there before Christmas. My metallic scarf is from a kiosk at Metrotown. My zippered black sweater is from Ross. I got the heart necklace at a Christmas Craft fair at Steveston Community Centre in Richmond. I bought a second ring from the vendor at the UBC student union building because one ring is never enough, despite what Lord of the Rings may have you believe.
