I decided to wear another dress on Friday, despite the fact that my leg hair was growing back. It’s a slightly longer dress, and I figure most people aren’t looking closely at the bottom half of my legs, so it’s fine. I got this dress at Suzy Shier at Capilano Mall a couple years ago. Normally, pleated skirts make me think of old lady outfits or my kilt from my high school uniform, but I like it on this dress. Floral patterns on black dresses are my favourite. I got this green cardigan at Ross Dress For Less in the States. I pretty much like to wear my blue flower necklace from UBC whenever I have similar flowers in my outfit. This ring is also from UBC, and has unfortunately lost a stone. But you can’t tell unless you look at it really closely. I guess that’s what happens when you buy a cheap $15 ring in a student union building. But as long as the main stone in the middle stays intact, I will continue to wear it and get my money’s worth. My earrings are either from a mall kiosk or a hair product store, and my bracelet is from Dollarama. Can chipped nail polish please become a new trend? Because I would love that so much. I had gone seven days at this point without washing my hair. I know that may seem unacceptable to some of you, but look how good it looks. I mean, it’s not stunning, but it’s so neat and smooth. I knew I would be sad upon washing it again and succumbing to the inevitable frizz.
This blue dress was the first thing I ever bought at Aritzia. I never shop there, but I was at the mall several years ago with a couple of my friends who loved the store. They both owned this style of dress in other colours. I think a lot of people did at the time. It was expensive for my price range, but this blue one happened to be on sale. It was only like $10 off, but that was better than nothing. I think it was $55 on sale for $45, or something like that. I’m really glad I bought it because I’ve gotten so much use out of it over the years, and it’s my main go to casual dress when I have nothing to wear. I got this purple sweater and the new H&M at Richmond Centre, when I decided to finally venture in there and actually try something on. I remember trying to take a selfie in the fitting room, but I couldn’t because my phone was so full that there was no storage left even to take just one photo. I really liked the colour, but I wasn’t a fan of the sleeves looking like they’re ripped at the cuffs. Is that a new trend? But I was willing to overlook it, because one can never have too many sweaters. I got this scarf at one of the vendors in the UBC student union building a while ago. I feel like I will never not buy scarves at UBC as long as I’m there.
