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.
I love long dresses because you don’t have to shave and no one will know. Unless you decide to blog about how you haven’t shaved. I got this long dress at the Khatsahlano Street Festival on West 4th last month. I’m used to buying a lot of shorter dresses, so this one was kind of different and I loved the colour scheme. When I left the house this morning, my dad asked “New dress?” and I said “What do you mean by new?” and he said “You haven’t worn it to work yet?” and I said “Yeah.” How much time has to pass before an item is no longer considered new?
I got this purple sweater at H&M at Richmond Centre. My black necklace is from Claire’s and my black bracelet is from a Christmas craft fair at Stevetson Community Centre in Richmond last year. My purple clothespin earrings and my purple ring are both from Greek Day on Broadway. Sadly, my hair is no longer straight. Because I washed it again and it takes a long ass time just to dry, so forget straightening. But I think it’s still slightly less messy than it was when it was longer.
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.
I thought I’d wear another one of my colourful dresses again. It’s possible that I got this dress from Winners but I’m really not sure. I guess we’ll never know. I got the sweater from H&M. My pink bracelet is from a Christmas craft fair at Steveston Community Centre in Richmond. My black beaded necklace and my small hoop earrings are from Claire’s. And my ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day. The guy eventually did respond to my message and said I could still exchange the rings for a bigger size at his next event. But I’m not sure what his next event will be. And I’ve already worn them. And once the heat subsides, they may not be too tight. So whatever.
This wasn’t what I was originally going to wear today, but I had some unforeseen issues with my initial outfit and this was the next best option. I think I got this dress at Winners. I hate birds, but I love the bright colours on this dress. I got the black sweater at Sears. I have a lot of black sweaters but this is the only one I could find this morning. My pink flip-flop necklace is from a jewellery vendor at the UBC student union building. It was this necklace that initially drew my attention to that tables, where I then ended up buying three other necklaces and two rings, including the black one I’m wearing here. I don’t know if you can tell, but my little green earrings from Claire’s are also in the shape of flip-flops. I got my pink bracelet from a Christmas craft fair at Steveston Community Centre in Richmond. They threw in the bracelet for free because I’d purchased a few of their necklaces, so this was a nice added bonus.
Oh my God, I’m actually wearing pants! I may or may not have run out of dresses at this point. Or the weather was getting better and I didn’t want to wear boots but I couldn’t find flats or other appropriate shoes to go with my dresses. My toenails are not currently ready for the public. Do you ever get annoyed and clip them, but then you keep going and clip them too close to the skin, and not even evenly? Or is that just something weird that I do? The point is, they’re too short right now, and my pinky toes barely even have a nail. I’ll have to wait until they grow to a decent length and then get myself a pedicure before I bust out the sandals. Also, I haven’t shaved my legs and the one pair of leggings I have are kind of thick, so yeah. Pants! I got these black pants the one time my friend took me to Marshalls after Pirate Pak Day at Whitespot. The purple top is from Ross Dress for Less in the States and the black cardigan is from Bryan’s at Lansdowne Centre. The scarf is from an Orb Warehouse sale. I guess I used to always buy scarves when I went to those. The necklace is from a Christmas craft fair I went to at Steveston Community Centre with my parents last year. I like that it’s adjustable so you can wear it at various lengths, long or short. Plus, it’s got just the right amount of bling. You can’t really tell from the picture, but my Claire’s earrings are in the shape of little black safety pins. And for added bling, my UBC SUB ring and my dollar store bracelet. Because that’s how classy I am.
On my second day of work, I wore a new grey dress I bought at Old Navy with my super cash I had from all the money I spent there before Christmas. My metallic scarf is from a kiosk at Metrotown. My zippered black sweater is from Ross. I got the heart necklace at a Christmas Craft fair at Steveston Community Centre in Richmond. I bought a second ring from the vendor at the UBC student union building because one ring is never enough, despite what Lord of the Rings may have you believe.
