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-eighth day of work selfie

This dress isn’t new, I just haven’t worn it in a while.  I got it at Suzy Shier a few years ago.  Pink and orange have never really been colours I wear a lot of, although I have been wearing more pink this summer.  I don’t own very many orange clothes.  But I like this dress.  My navy blue cardigan is from La Vie En Rose.  I don’t have any orange sweaters, and I felt if I wore my pink one it would just be too bright of an outfit.  My pink flip flop necklace is from UBC and my pink flip flop earrings are from Claire’s.  I really like these pieces of jewellery because they showcase my love for shoes without me having to actually buy a new pair of shoes.  My pink bracelet is from a Christmas craft fair at Steveston Community centre in Richmond last year and my orange ring is from the Greek Day street festival on West Broadway in June. 

Ninety-fourth day of work selfie 

I got this long dress at Ross Dress For Less in the States a few years ago but I never really wore it.  I’m just not used to long dresses, but I’m beginning to like them more now.  My black cardigan is from Sirens.  My pink flip flop necklace is from UBC and my pink flip flop earrings are from Claire’s.  My bracelet is from a Christmas craft fair at Steveston Community Centre in Richmond and my ring is from the Greek Day street festival on West Broadway.  My nails still match this outfit because there is a little bit of blue in my dress. 

Seventy-ninth day of work selfie

I don’t know where I got this light pink top from.  I’m going to take a guess and say Urban Planet?  The navy blue cardigan is from Bryan’s and the black pants are from Old Navy.  I got my necklace from my favourite street vendor at Greek Day on Broadway and I got my earrings from another vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street.  My bracelet is from Suzy Shier.  My black ring is from my favourite street vendor who was also at Carnaval Del Sol.  I thought I would give my ring finger a rest and accessorize my middle finger instead.

Sixty-eighth day of work selfie

I’m all pretty in pink today.  Is it too much?  Well if it is, I don’t care.  I got this dress at Car Free Day on Denman Street a couple weekends ago.  They had it in other colours, but the pink one was the most vibrant and just felt right for summer.  The purple tank top I’m wearing under it is from Smart Set.  My pink sweater is from the Plenty warehouse sale at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Easter weekend.  I know it’s hot, but when I’m in the office, the temperature is more regulated so I don’t really notice the heat or humidity until I go outside.  Maybe I should just leave a sweater in my office, since I don’t really need one when I’m outside before or after work.  

I’ve been buying a lot of fancy jewellery lately.  I got this necklace at Greek Day on Broadway yesterday.  I have a similar one in blue that I got from Payless and I got complimented on it, so I thought I’d buy another necklace in that style.  I bought a pair of matching earrings as well, but they are kind of heavy so I didn’t wear them.  I knew they were heavy when I bought them, but I really wanted a matching set.  Maybe next time, I will just wear them briefly for photos and then take them off.  Instead, I decided to wear my pink flip flop earrings which are more lightweight.  I got my shiny bracelet from Car Free Day on Main Street a couple weekends ago.  I somehow didn’t have a pink or purple bracelet to pair with this outfit.  We’ll have to change that soon.  

I love this purple ring that I got at Greek Day yesterday.  But it’s kind of tight.  I didn’t realize until afterwards how tight it is.  And I got a second ring in this size too.  The guy selling them told me it would be okay because my fingers would be less swelled up in the morning when I put on the ring.  But contrary to that, I felt like my fingers were actually more swelled up this morning and the ring felt even tighter.  I tried on the ring on my left hand just to see the difference, and my ring finger on that hand is somehow fatter.  I couldn’t even get the ring off, so I concluded that I must be married to myself now.  I managed to remove it using some lotion.  Is it possible to lose weight in your finger?  Is that a thing?  Maybe tight rings are like a corset for your finger?  I don’t want to hurt myself though.  But I feel like my finger fluctuates in terms of swelling throughout the day, because sometimes I feel like the ring maybe fits and other times I’m like nope, this is definitely way too tight.  I wonder if the guy will let me exchange them.  Except he doesn’t have a physical store and I don’t know what event he’ll be at next.  What a fail.   Maybe I’ll have to find someone who has a more slender finger than I do and bestow a lovely gift upon them.  Or sell it because I paid good money for it.  And also find someone who likes heavy earrings.  Or just keep everything and suffer through the discomfort because beauty is pain.

Forty-sixth day of work selfie

Why not wear pink stripes?  I think I got this sweater at one of those random stores at Lansdowne Centre years ago.  It used to have a belt, but as I’ve previously mentioned, I’ve somehow manage to lose literally all of my belts.  I got my black top at Ross Dress For Less in the States and my black pants at Marshalls.  I don’t know why I decided to wear all black on a warm day.  Throwback Thursday to when I worked at Jacob and was required to wear all black?  I didn’t really need a scarf because it was warm enough, but I thought I may as well wear one while I still could, and the metallic one just made the outfit a bit more exciting, along with my Payless heart necklace, Claire’s earrings, Dollarama bracelet, and UBC ring.

Sixteenth day of work selfie

I love this dress.  I got it on sale at Reitmans.  The first time I ever wore it was to an Elton John concert last year and then I’m not sure if I’ve worn it again since then.  I got the pink cardigan from The Plenty warehouse sale at the Vancouver Convention Centre during Easter weekend.  After taking this selfie, I noticed, to my horror, that there was a small hole  on the back of the sweater that I hadn’t noticed earlier.  This was my first time wearing it too.  Just my luck that something I bought from a warehouse sale would have a defect and be non-refundable.  But despite the hole, I plan to wear the hell out it anyway.  Because I can.  In keeping with my flower theme, I wore this red rose ring that I bought at the Make It Vancouver Christmas craft fair a couple years ago.  And in keeping with the bright colours of this outfit, I wore my sparkly blue scarf and flower necklace.  My sister asked me if this was the most colourful outfit I’ve ever worn to work.  I think it is.  So far, anyway.  Who knows what the future will hold?
