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.
I probably should have worn pants since it was actually kind of cold this morning but oh well. Like I said, I’m just going to continue wearing dresses because I can. Unless someone can direct me to a store where I can buy a pair of pants that are comfortable and look good and fit well. As far as I’m aware, none exist. I got this dress at Suzy Shier. It’s not new, I just haven’t worn it to work before. It came with a belt, but I don’t know what the hell happened to that belt. One of the belt loops on the side of the dress is broken. I think it may have been torn when I bought it, so I got like 10% off or something. I figured it would tear eventually and I’m not a belt person anyway. This navy blue cardigan is new, I got it at La Vie En Rose. So maybe it’s technically lounge wear, but can you even tell? My green leaf necklace is from UBC, my green zipper earrings are from Claire’s, and my green ring is from Greek Day.
Of course I had to wear my grey Vero Moda blazer from London Drugs again. The only thing I don’t like about this blazer is that the pockets are fake. I love pockets because I always have random stuff with me and they always come in handy, so fake pockets are kind of like a slap in the face. But it’s okay. They are forgiven, because this blazer is otherwise just so fabulous. I feel like this grey goes well with navy, so I paired it with this navy top that I got at La Vie En Rose. I suppose it’s technically meant as a pajama top or loungewear or whatever, but I felt like it was too nice to have its use be limited to just in the house. I wanted a really light scarf for that day so I chose my rainbow looking one from the UBC Sub. And I decided to wear my Swarovski necklace again with my Payless earrings, UBC Sub ring, and Suzy Shier bracelet. And Marshalls pants.I’m going to miss wearing blazers when the weather gets too hot.
Red is supposed to be a bold, strong, confident colour. And why wouldn’t I want to exude those qualities? I bought this red sweater at Sears last year, before it closed down. A friend of mine had mentioned how stuff was on sale and how she bought clothes from the Jessica line so I decided to follow suit. The sweater with the roses was from the same kiosk in Metrotown where I bought my shiny scarves. I’m actually wearing matching red rose rain boots that I got from The Bay, but sadly they are not pictured here, as I do not have access to a full length mirror. I believe it was sunny that day, because of course it would be on a day when I wear rain boots. I think the black dress was actually from La Vie En Rose. Despite being a lingerie store, they surprisingly have a lot of clothing items that are perfectly acceptable for everyday wear. No one would know the difference. I just realized that I’m wearing a ROSE scarf with a dress from La Vie En ROSE. What a coincidence.
