I’m not dressed very summery today. But screw the weather, I’ll wear what I want. Besides, temperatures are supposed to soar this weekend, so I’ll save the summery dresses for that. I got this top at an Orb warehouse sale. The red sweater is from Sears and the pants are from Winners. My Nintendo heart necklace is from Fan Expo Vancouver, my bracelet is from Dollarama, and my ring is from UBC. My earrings are new, I got them from a vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street on Sunday. The same vendor I got the blue earrings from, who called me back to his booth to offer me a free third pair of earrings if I bought the first two. I touched up my nail polish with a clear coat of polish. Do they look shinier now? I realized I should have painted them red since Canada Day is coming up next week. I don’t want to remove the polish and repaint them since they actually look decent. But it’s okay, I have plenty of red jewellery and clothing to make up for it.
Some days you just don’t feel like wearing bright colours, so I decided to wear this navy blue Ross dress. Since I lack the boobs to fill it out, I wore this black Walrmart tank top underneath it. In keeping with darker colours, I wore it with my brown and gold Aritzia sweater. Actually, now that I’m looking at it, I think the sweater might actually be black, but the gold sparkles cause it to look brown? I figure I should wear a few dark coloured outfits before it gets too unbearably hot and I won’t be able to. I decided to wear silver jewellery to add some shine to this outfit, with my Payless heart necklace and earrings. And then my Suzy Shier bracelet and my UBC ring.
Since Wednesday was supposed to be another cold and possibly rainy day, I reluctantly decided to wear pants, despite the fact that I had shaved my legs just a few days earlier. These black pants are from Target and are a bit lighter than my Marshalls ones. I got this top at Sears at Richmond Centre not too long before they closed. My dad put it on his Sears card so it would be cheaper. Thanks Dad! Since the weather was cooler, I decided on my red Vero Moda blazer from The Bay. This worked well, since these pants lack pockets, but this blazer has quite spacious ones. My black scarf is from an Orb warehouse sale, my red video game heart necklace is from Fan Expo Vancouver, my red earrings are from a kiosk at Lansdowne Centre, my ring is from UBC, and my bracelet is from Dollarama. It had also been five days since I’d washed my hair, and I didn’t plan on doing so anytime soon. Whenever I happen to take the time to straighten my hair, I like to wait as long as I possibly can in order to prolong the effects.
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.
