Eighty-fourth day of work selfie 

It was cold this morning so I wore darker colours.  The black dress is from Stitches, the purple tank top is from Smart Set, and the purple jacket is from a Plenty warehouse sale.  My purple necklace is new, I got it from the Blim Market festival downtown on Sunday.  My purple earrings are also new, I got them from Claire’s on Sunday.  My black bracelet is also from Claire’s.  I still need to find a purple one.  My purple ring is from Greek Day on Broadway.  And my #SELFIE iPhone case is from Aldo.

Eighty-first day of work selfie

This has been a week of pants.  Because why not?  I got this top from an Orb warehouse sale a few years ago.  My green cardigan is from Ross Dress For Less and my black pants are from Old Navy.  My green leaf necklace is from UBC and my green earrings are from Car Free Day on Main Street.  My matching bracelet is from Dollarama and my green ring is from Greek Day on Broadway.  And I totally left my ring in my office and forgot about it.  I didn’t realize it until I was already at the bus stop, suddenly aware of my naked finger.  That ring is my blingiest one, so now my weekend will be filled with less bling than it otherwise could have.  I’ll have to make up for it in some other way.

Seventy-seventh day of work selfie 

It was kind of cold this morning so I actually wore pants.  I got them from La Vie En Rose Aqua at Richmond Centre.  My purple top is from the Plenty warehouse sale that took place at the Vancouver Convention Centre during Easter long weekend.  My black sweater is from the Sears that used to be at Richmond Centre.  I got my necklace from a vendor at Greek Day on Broadway a few weeks ago.  That same vendor is at literally every street festival I go to.  And I always end up buying stuff from there.  I got this new black ring from them yesterday at Carnaval del Sol at Concord Pacific Place.  I got my dangly purple earrings from a vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street last month.  My black bracelet is from Claire’s at Richmond Centre and my purple ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day.  I feel like maybe a should keep a thicker sweater in my office because it’s colder inside than it is outside.  Or maybe a blanket?

Sixty-sixth day of work selfie

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. 

Fifty-first day of work

Since Thursday was supposed to be warmer than Wednesday, I thought I would wear a dress again.  This Old Navy dress is a little thicker than my other dresses so I thought I should wear it while the weather wasn’t too hot.  This sweater is from H&M.  It actually matches my nail polish.  Or what’s left of my nail polish, anyway.  My scarf is from an Orb warehouse sale, and my ring is from UBC.  My necklace, bracelet, and earrings are from Claire’s.  And I still hadn’t washed my hair yet because I wanted to keep it straight, or straight-ish for a little while longer.  I ended up wearing sandals with this outfit, because my sister needed the one pair of flats I could find for her college graduation ceremony that day.  It was also her birthday, so I let her have them.  I have so many pairs of flats by I can’t seem to find any of them.  My toes were kind of cold in sandals and my toenails were badly painted but oh well. 

Fiftieth day of work selfie

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.

Forty-ninth day of work selfie

So I wore a dress with no leggings on Tuesday, not realizing how cold it actually was.  What a fail.  If there was ever a day when I should have worn pants, that was probably it.  But my leg hair was growing back fast, and I wanted to go bare legged while I still could without having to shave again.  I’m stubborn that way.  I don’t dress based on the weather.  I dress based on whether or not I’ve shaved, and based on what clean clothes I can find that sort of match.  I knew it might be cold and rainy that day, but I didn’t care.

This dress is slightly longer than my other dresses, so somehow I thought that would make it more weather appropriate.  I got it at an Orb warehouse sale at the River Rock Casino.  I feel like I should be wearing a cowboy hat or something, just because I’m wearing denim.  When I was in high school, at an all girls school, they had an idea one year that they would make Valentine’s Day fun by making it a “couples day”, where you could find a partner and dress as some sort of famous couple.  My friend and I did Brokeback Mountain.  I was Heath Ledger.  And I was amazing.  But we unfortunately didn’t win a prize for our awesome efforts.  Probably because it was also a Catholic school and they weren’t ready to accept our same sex love story.

Anyway, I love jean jackets.  I got this one at Old Navy on Robson Street downtown when I had leftover super cash to spend.  I didn’t want to wear an actual rain jacket or anything even though it was cold, because it’s June and I’ve set aside the boots and the jackets.  But this jean jacket seemed acceptable.  It looks as though I haven’t quite set aside the scarves just as yet.  At least not for cold days.  I got this one from a vendor at the UBC Sub.  I got the red necklace as a Christmas gift from my grandma.  The Supernatural wing earrings are from Fan Expo Vancouver, my ring is from UBC, and my bracelet is from Suzy Shier.  I thought about touching up my nails, but I think they’re too far gone now so I’ll just let them keep chipping away until there’s nothing left to see.
