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.
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 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?
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.
Happy New Year!
