I decided to wear this wonderfully colourful dress to work for the second time. I think it’s probably the best thing I’ve ever purchased at Reitmans. Although I did but a pair of tall person pants several years ago that lasted me quite a while. But this dress is definitely the most fashionable item I’ve found there. This time I paired it with another colourful sweater, a purchase from Sears before they closed. While a vibrant, royal blue is my favourite type of blue, I still like this aqua type of blue a whole lot. I also like the fact that I have the jewellery to match it, with my blue flower necklace and my ring, both from UBC, and my blue bracelet from Suzy Shier. My blue flip flop earrings are from Claire’s. I got them a while ago, but decided that I wouldn’t wear flip flop jewellery until the weather was nice enough to wear actual flip flops as well. It just wouldn’t feel right wearing flip flop jewellery during the winter. I am wearing a bit of makeup for a change, because I have a hot date tonight. And by hot date, I mean I’m going out for dinner with my friend so she can redeem one of her free birthday meal coupons. And if that’s not cause for celebration, then I don’t know what is.
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?
