I remember buying this purple dress at Urban Behavior at Metrotown. There are so many different “Urban” stores that it’s easy to get them confused. I remember it had no price tag on it and it was the only one of its kind. I hate when that happens. It always happens with the one item I really want. And having worked in retail for nine years, I know what a pain in the ass it is for the employees to try and locate the sku. But they were eventually able to figure it out, and I purchased the dress for $15. The tank top with the flowers underneath the dress was from Old Navy. The purple sweater is one of the few I bought at Jacob while I worked there. Because their dress code was all black, unless you bought and wore their clothes. Which, even with a 50% discount, were still pricey. So consequently, I own a lot of black clothes. My siblings used to call me goth, not understanding that it wasn’t by choice. I look good in black though, so no complaints, except for the summer months where I was dying from the heat. I think the scarf might have been from Orb, since I buy a lot of scarves there but I’m not sure. The earrings and necklace are from Claire’s, because they have a good nickel free selection and ever since I worked there, I’ve bought countless amounts of their cheap jewellery items. I’m pretty sure I paid a dollar for those earrings. I love a good deal.
I had like 50 shades of grey in my outfit that day. I got this dress at Urban Planet a while ago but this was my first time wearing it. You may not be able to see it, but there are sparkles on it along with the black flowers, so I decided to pair it with my sparkly metallic scarf from the Metrotown kiosk. I wish I could remember the name of the kiosk. There are two of them in that mall. Going with my grey theme, I decided to wear the sweater I bought at Jacob while I worked there, and while the store was still in business. I got the earrings, necklace, and bracelet from Claire’s. I know it’s like a little girl’s store, but it’s one of the few places where I can get nickel free jewellery. And I think I still feel somewhat connected to it since it was my first permanent job, even if it wasn’t the greatest. And the ring is from the vendor in the UBC sub. I think the only rings I own are the two that I bought at UBC because I’ve never really been much of a ring person. Who says grey has to be boring?
You may recall a while ago I wrote a post about going to the Richmond Night Market. Well you knew I couldn’t stay away for too long and that I’d be back sooner than later. This time, it wasn’t just about the food. I went earlier and spent more time in the non food area as well before indulging in the goodness prepared by the food vendors.
They spelled stationary wrong at this booth. Stationary with an a refers to something standing still, like a stationary bike. Stationery with an e is what they really meant, as it refers to various writing supplies and whatnot.
I seem to have this newfound obsession with sunglasses. Night market sunglasses mostly. I like this style but I wasn’t sure if I could pull off wearing them because of how red they were.
I can, however, pull these ones off, right? I don’t really understand them but at the same time I kind of do. They’re kind of like those shutter sunglasses but better. I would have bought them except for the fact that I couldn’t exactly see properly while wearing them. That and the fact that they do nothing whatsoever to protect my eyes from the sun.
I didn’t buy these either but I do like them. They kind of have a unique shape. Maybe I’ll buy them next time I go? Or maybe they’re too big?
I’m very indecisive, especially with sunglasses, as I find it extremely difficult to find a pair that do me justice.
I had a mishap with my phone while trying to take a picture and ended up with this randomness. But my left shoe managed to make its way into the shot. It’s such a camera whore.
It’s really smart that they were selling $2 flip flops, as you do a lot of walking at the Night Market. I’m pretty sure some people mistakenly wear uncomfortable shoes and later regret their footwear decision.
We couldn’t stay away from the food for too long. Walking around works up an appetite.
Rice burgers are really good too.
I was slightly disappointed by the false advertising, as I realized that the corn dogs were coated in hash browns, not fries. But I like hash browns too, so it was okay. But someone should really let them know that there’s a difference.
Rice burgers are probably a lot healthier than regular burgers.
I was so disappointed that the mini-chicken teriyaki burgers sold out. I mean they have yam fries in them. That sounds so good! I am definitely getting one next time. This booth will have to be my first stop.
These things were so unbelievable good.
I decided on the strawberry mango icy. A lot of fruit, a lot of slushy, and vanilla ice cream on top. It was amazing. You don’t need to buy a drink if you get this because the slushy part is pretty much a drink in itself. Perfect for a hot day.
Loving someone who used to love you? What the hell is that supposed to taste like? And is it a good taste? It sounds like it might not be.
I’m really glad they had indoor plumbing. I was expecting porta potties or something, which would have been highly unpleasant. Thank God for these bathrooms. Although the floors were dirty. But there were running toilets, so I can’t complain.
They had a booth with leggings and fishnet stockings. I obviously had to buy a pair. While we were debating, they gave us a deal so we could buy three pairs and each get one, for cheaper than if we bought them separately. Sometimes it pays to be indecisive.
I found a booth that had a whole wall of nickel free earrings. I’m allergic to a lot of jewellery and I love earrings, so it’s like this booth was made for me.
I think there should be more places like this one so that I don’t feel left out when it comes to jewellery. It’s always nice having options.
My first non food related purchase was sunglasses again. This time they were $4. I remember Sunglasses At Night was playing when I entered the night market. Which of course was very fitting, seeing as I was in fact wearing them.
And I’m excited to wear my fishnets as well, though I’ve yet to open up the package. I’m hoping I can find a special occasion where I can wear my fishnets with my jewellery and my sunglasses. Or maybe I’ll just wear them all next time I go to the night market.
