I literally bought this dress at Winners the day before I wore it. I had tried it on over the weekend and regrettably not bought it, so when I went back to look for it and it was still there, I knew that it was meant to be. I just fell in love with the shape and the pattern and everything about it. I paired it with my pink cardigan from the Plenty Warehouse sale, because I felt like it matched well, and I had vowed to wear the hell out of it. I was going to the New Kids On the Block concert right after work that day, so I wanted an outfit that was fun. My shiny metallic scarf is pretty much my concert scarf because I like that it stands out. I got my heart necklace from a vendor at Fan Expo Vancouver this year, which was the same weekend as the Plenty sale. I like the style because it’s supposed to be like those life hearts in video games. My earrings are from Claire’s, my ring is from UBC, and I do believe that is another dollar store bracelet. Still not ashamed.
I got this bright pink dress from La Vie En Rose Aqua at Richmond Centre. Because I love buying dresses from lingerie & swim stores. This was my first time wearing it. The purple jacket is from the Plenty warehouse sale I went to at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Easter long weekend. I like that it has a side diagonal zipper as opposed to one straight down the front. The colourful scarf is from one of the scarf vendors at the UBC student union building and my earrings are from Claire’s. There’s a possibility that I was beginning to run out of new matching outfits by this point, because these aren’t normally colours that I would pair together. But I’d like to think that I made it work.
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?
I must confess that I am not 100% sure of where I bought this dress, but I think it was from Ross. I have a lot of dresses with floral patterns, which I have a love/hate relationship with. Why? Because flowers attract bees and other insects. And regardless of what I’m wearing, I tend to attract them myself, so I definitely don’t need the added attraction that the flowers tend to bring. But they’re pretty, so I wear them anyway. I got the blue cardigan from the Plenty Warehouse Sale at the Vancouver Convention Centre a few weeks ago. It was on Easter weekend, the same weekend as Fan Expo Vancouver. So I was able to be nerdy, religious, and a shopaholic all at the same time. Best thing about this cardigan? The pockets. I got my blue earrings from Claire’s. I used to love wearing huge earrings, but lately I’ve settled for tiny ones, so as not to hurt or stretch my ear lobes. I repeated my scarf, necklace, and ring in this outfit, because they match, and because I can.
