One hundredth day of work selfie

After all that colour, I thought I would go back to classic black and white.  I got this dress from the Guess outlet store in Las Vegas last year.  It’s a really nice summer dress, but I don’t wear it that often because I don’t wear white that often.  Because I’m a messy person and white always gets dirty.  Like I just noticed a tiny blue spot at the bottom of the dress.  I have no idea what it is.  Nail polish maybe?  I can’t think of any other blue substance this dress may have come into contact with.  It’s very small and unnoticeable though, thankfully.  Wait, I think I’ve gone and stained it slightly in another spot with avocado from lunch.  Damnit.  I knew this would happen.

My black blazer is new.  I got it from Winners.  It was just so snazzy looking that I had to try it on.  I had intended to save it for the fall, but it was cool enough out today that I thought I would bring it out early.  Everyone needs a black blazer as part of their professional wardrobe.

I got my necklace from Sears and my earrings from Payless.  My shiny bracelet is from Car Free Day on Main Street and my shiny black ring is from Carnaval del Sol at Conford Pacific Place.  Black and white doesn’t have to be dull if you glam it up a bit.

Ninety-ninth day of work selfie

I told you I’ve been wearing more pink this summer.  My sister gave me this dress for my birthday last year.  She has good taste.  I mean, of course she has good taste, she borrows my clothes sometimes.  She got it at Bryan’s.  I think she actually bought it for herself and then didn’t like the way it looked on her and then decided to gift it to me.  But whatever.  She’s really into rainbow designs.  I wore this dress to the Vancouver Pride Parade last year because it’s so rainbow like.

My pink cardigan is from the Plenty warehouse sale at the Vancouver Convention Centre during Easter long weekend.  My necklace and earrings are both from Payless.  My bracelet is from Sears and my ring is from the Blim Market street festival downtown last month.  I’m kind of liking my hair being dirty and messy.  It kind of works.  Or maybe it doesn’t.  But whatever. 

Ninety-third day of work selfie

Cold and rainy weather doesn’t have to mean pants.  For me, it just mean a slightly longer dress.  I got this dress at the Caribbean Days festival at Waterfront Park in North Vancouver a few weeks ago.  I love blue and I love leopard print.  They also had green, pink, and purple versions of this dress, but blue was the best.  My denim jacket is from Old Navy.  My bracelet is from Suzy Shier and my ring is from the Blim Market festival downtown.  My necklace is from Payless and my earrings are from Claire’s.  Maybe I will just continue to wear blue until my nail polish comes off. 

Eighty-third day of work selfie 

I decided to wear this blue dress again since blue is my favourite colour.  I got it at Italian Day on Commercial Drive last month.  The matching blue sweater is from Forever 21 on Robson.  I got my blue necklace from Payless at Lansdowne Centre and my blue earrings from Claire’s on Granville.  I got my blue and gold bracelet is from the Khatsahlano Street Festival on West 4th a couple weekends ago.  I finally got myself a blue ring on Sunday at the Blim Market Festival downtown on Granville.  I like buying jewellery from local vendors that’s crafty and unique.  And my #SELFIE iPhone case is from the Aldo outlet store on Granville.

Eighty-second day of work selfie

And we’re back to dresses.  I got this dress at a vendor at Fiji Day at Swanguard Stadium in Burnaby on Saturday.  My sister was working at the event at the face painting booth, and my dad was like “Are you going?  Don’t you go to all the festivals?” so I decided to check it out.  I’m annoyed, because I have two other dresses in this style, that I got from the vendor I usually buy from at street festivals.  Why am I annoyed?  Because the vendor I bought this new dress from on Saturday sells the same style of dresses for less than half the price that I’ve been paying at the other place.  They didn’t have as many different kinds though.  I have the same dress in red, but slightly shorter, which I was actually wearing when I bought this one.  There was a black and grey one as well, but my friend bought it, so I went with the brown one.  I like that they’re easy to just try on over what you’re already wearing, and that they’re stretchy and one size fits all.   My blue cardigan is from Forever 21.  I got my necklace from Payless and my earrings from a vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street.  My bracelet is from a vendor at Carnaval del Sol a couple weekends ago, and my ring is from a vendor at the Blim Market Festival on Granville Street that I went to yesterday.  I also go a new iPhone case at Aldo yesterday.  My hand is covering it, but it says #SELFIE on it.  I felt like that was appropriate for me.

Eightieth day of work selfie 

I went with classic black and white today.  This top is from Costa Blanca.  My friend gave it to me for my birthday a few years ago.  My black sweater is from Forever 21 and my black pants are from Old Navy.  I think black pants and a black sweater are two essential components of any wardrobe.  But I’m glad I don’t have a dress code that requires me to wear them on a daily basis like I did at Jacob.  My long necklace is from Payless.  I remember when I was walking down Main Street on Car Free Day, looking at the jewellery in one of the booths, the woman there said she liked my necklace and asked where I got it.  When I told her Payless, she was like “What?  Payless?  Really?” in a confused and judgemental tone.  I thought “Really, you’re judging me for where I bought my jewellery even though you yourself said it was nice?”.  I didn’t buy anything from her.  I did buy these white earrings from another vendor at Car Free Day though.  I got my bracelet at Carnaval del Sol on Sunday and my ring at UBC a while ago. 

Seventy-first day of work selfie

I got this dress at Car Free Day on Commercial Drive a couple weeks ago.  It’s a bit longer than my other dresses and stops right at my knees.  Which is kind of weird, because it feels like it should be right above or right below.  Like either cover my knees or don’t.  It’s probably meant to be a full length dress on a short girl.  I tried it on over my own dress at at Car Free Day.  There was a mirror, but it was kind of low down, so I crouched down on the street to see how it looked.  I paired it with my favourite blue sweater from Forever 21.  My necklace is from Payless and my earrings are from a vendor at Greek Day.  I wish they’d had the earrings in the same blue as my necklace.  They are a bit heavy, but I don’t care because I love them.  They were similar enough to my necklace that I thought they would go together.  I’m constantly wearing mismatched sets, and pairing gold jewellery with silver jewellery.  But I like it that way.  My blue bracelet is from Sears and my green ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day.  I wanted a blue one, but the blue ring they had was even smaller than this and wouldn’t have even fit on my finger, let alone been too tight.  The little bit of what’s left of my chipped nail polish matches my outfit.  I’m wearing another pair of new shoes today as well, but again, you can’t see them.
