It’s usually cold in the morning, but I thought it would get too hot later in the day for a jean jacket. But then I decided that I didn’t care because I really wanted to wear it. I love my denim jackets. I got this one from Old Navy. I usually like my denim in the darkest wash possible, but I like this one too. I shaved my legs a bit better this morning so I could wear a shorter dress. I made the mistake of shaving my underarms and then putting on deodorant. It burned. I won’t be making that mistake again. Except that I most likely, probably, definitely will. This black dress is from Stitches. I used to wear it a lot when I worked at Jacob Lingerie, because of our all black dress code. I had to wear a tank top under it today since I don’t quite fill it out enough. I think I made it work without one at Jacob Lingerie, since I invested in a lot of good pushup bras during my time there. And when you work at a lingerie store, plunging necklines aren’t a problem. This red necklace was a gift from my grandma. My bracelet is from Suzy Shier and my ring is from UBC. I don’t know if you can see my metal earrings, but one is the shape of a toothbrush, and the other is the shape of a tube of toothpaste. Because why not? I bought them at a Christmas craft fair at South Arm Community Centre last year. I wore them to my last dentist appointment because I could. That was a horrible appointment though, because I had to get a wisdom tooth removed, and I was awake, T3s don’t work for me so I had no painkillers, they had to cut away a lot of gums, and it was painful. I hate dentists. So I don’t know why I’d want a reminder of them in the form of jewellery. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
I met my friend for brunch at the Elbow Room a few weekends ago and had time to kill downtown after we parted ways. Naturally, I decided to go shopping at Pacific Centre. I realize that it’s not that much of a novelty shopping at H&M downtown anymore, since we now have our own location at Richmond Centre. But the Richmond one doesn’t have two floors and three sets of fitting rooms. And I’m just not completely used to it yet. So I went and bought this dress at the H&M at Pacific Centre. I ended up coincidentally wearing it on 4/20, realizing after the fact that some of the green leaves on it kind of resemble marijuana leaves. I didn’t partake in 4/20, but this outfit may have ended up smelling like I did, since I happened to go out for dinner downtown that day. This light green cardigan is one of my favourite non-bra items that I bought while working at Jacob Lingerie. I love buying clothes at lingerie stores because they totally work for everyday wear and no one would know the difference. I remember my manager asking me if I was sure I wanted it and I was. I’m glad I did because it’s perfect for hot days when you just need something light. Plus it has pockets! I couldn’t find a green scarf that day, so I settled on this black Orb one instead. Pretty much every time I wear green, I ended up including this leaf necklace in my outfit, because it’s fabulous.
