Fifty-sixth day of work selfie

Some days you just don’t feel like wearing bright colours, so I decided to wear this navy blue Ross dress.  Since I lack the boobs to fill it out, I wore this black Walrmart tank top underneath it.  In keeping with darker colours, I wore it with my brown and gold Aritzia sweater.  Actually, now that I’m looking at it, I think the sweater might actually be black, but the gold sparkles cause it to look brown? I figure I should wear a few dark coloured outfits before it gets too unbearably hot and I won’t be able to.  I decided to wear silver jewellery to add some shine to this outfit, with my Payless heart necklace and earrings.  And then my Suzy Shier bracelet and my 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? 

Ninth day of work selfie

I had like 50 shades of grey in my outfit that day. I got this dress at Urban Planet a while ago but this was my first time wearing it. You may not be able to see it, but there are sparkles on it along with the black flowers, so I decided to pair it with my sparkly metallic scarf from the Metrotown kiosk. I wish I could remember the name of the kiosk. There are two of them in that mall. Going with my grey theme, I decided to wear the sweater I bought at Jacob while I worked there, and while the store was still in business. I got the earrings, necklace, and bracelet from Claire’s. I know it’s like a little girl’s store, but it’s one of the few places where I can get nickel free jewellery. And I think I still feel somewhat connected to it since it was my first permanent job, even if it wasn’t the greatest. And the ring is from the vendor in the UBC sub. I think the only rings I own are the two that I bought at UBC because I’ve never really been much of a ring person. Who says grey has to be boring?

This is my first blog post of 2013

Sorry it took so long.  I hope the quality of this post is not indicative of the type of year I’m going to have.  I’ll just leave you with a picture of me ringing in the new year with my sparkles and champagne at Celebrities.

I hope I get another opportunity to wear an outfit this shiny again some time.

Happy New Year!
