Ninety-seventh day of work selfie

Red is a strong and bold colour, so why not wear it as often as you can?  This dress is more of an orangey red, but it’s still a good red.  I got this dress from my favourite street festival vendor at Carnaval del Sol at Pacific Conford Place.  It is the same style as my favourite blue dress, but with the added designs and peacock feathers on the bottom.  I love this style because you don’t even have to worry about a back and a front because it’s exactly the same either way you put it on.  And it’s so comfortable and stretchy and flowy.

I got my red sweater from Sirens, I think.  I just noticed there is sadly a hole in the sleeve.  So I did what any capable adult would do, and I stapled that hole shut in my office.  I’m ever so resourceful with my office supplies.  I got my necklace from Greek Day on Broadway and my earrings from Car Free Day on Main Street.  I got my ring from UBC.  I don’t actually know where I got my bracelet from.  It just sort of turned up and I was like alright, I’ll wear it.

Eighty-second day of work selfie

And we’re back to dresses.  I got this dress at a vendor at Fiji Day at Swanguard Stadium in Burnaby on Saturday.  My sister was working at the event at the face painting booth, and my dad was like “Are you going?  Don’t you go to all the festivals?” so I decided to check it out.  I’m annoyed, because I have two other dresses in this style, that I got from the vendor I usually buy from at street festivals.  Why am I annoyed?  Because the vendor I bought this new dress from on Saturday sells the same style of dresses for less than half the price that I’ve been paying at the other place.  They didn’t have as many different kinds though.  I have the same dress in red, but slightly shorter, which I was actually wearing when I bought this one.  There was a black and grey one as well, but my friend bought it, so I went with the brown one.  I like that they’re easy to just try on over what you’re already wearing, and that they’re stretchy and one size fits all.   My blue cardigan is from Forever 21.  I got my necklace from Payless and my earrings from a vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street.  My bracelet is from a vendor at Carnaval del Sol a couple weekends ago, and my ring is from a vendor at the Blim Market Festival on Granville Street that I went to yesterday.  I also go a new iPhone case at Aldo yesterday.  My hand is covering it, but it says #SELFIE on it.  I felt like that was appropriate for me.

Seventieth day of work selfie

I got this dress at H&M at Richmond Centre last week.  It’s the same style as the one I have with the green leaves on it.  I normally don’t like to buy things that are so similar, but this one was on sale for only $7, so I figure I couldn’t go wrong.  It’s one of those dresses where it’s not my favourite, but it’s still nice.  At first I thought it had pinecones on it, but now I think they’re actually pineapples.  I paired it with my green Ross cardigan.  

My black necklace is new.  I got it at Greek Day on Broadway on Sunday.  It was from the same vendor that I bought my purple necklace from.  I got my green earrings from another vendor, also at Greek Day.  They are little clothespins.  I thought that was unique.  My bracelet is from Dollarama.  This green ring is from Boca Raton Designs, also at Greek Day.  I was only going to buy the purple one, but the guy told me he’d give them to me for a bit less if I bought two.  Yes, it’s tight, but I figure I’ll just wear them while I can, until one day my fingers swell and I’ll no longer be able to.  But for now, I’m loving the bling.  I’m also wearing new shoes today, but you can’t see them in this photo.  

Sixty-fourth day of work selfie

Another blue dress from a street festival.  I got this one at Italian Day on Commercial Drive a couple weekends ago, along with the green dress that I wore last week.  The styles are similar, but different enough that I was fine with getting both.  I really like this colour blue and the designs that are on this dress.  It would’ve matched really well with the sweater I wore yesterday, but I didn’t want to wear the same sweater two days in a row if I could help it.  Instead, I paired it with this brown cardigan that I got from Bryan’s at Lansdowne Centre, since there is also brown in the dress.  My necklace is from Her Story Lockets and I got it at the PNE last year.  I actually ran into the girl who runs that business during Car Free Day on Denman Street and she remembered me because I was such a loyal customer.  My earrings are new, I got them at Car Free Day on Main Street on Sunday.   My ring is from UBC and my bracelet is from Sears.  And my nails are still looking good because I touched the up a little bit.  I may end up wearing even more blue outfits this week, because it’s my favourite colour, but also because I want my clothes to match my nails.  I guess purple would work too because they’re kind of purplish.  Or you know, I’ll just wear a different colour entirely.  Because really, who cares?

Thirty-eighth day of work selfie

I got this floral jacket from Suzy Shier at Capilano Mall.  It kind of made me think of like an older lady jacket at the time for some reason but I still liked it.  They also had this style in leopard print, but since I already own so much leopard print, I opted for this colourful one instead.  I think this was my first time wearing it.  I used to not like pairing green and purple together because it made me think of Barney.  But who’s to say Barney’s colour scheme wasn’t fabulous?  Also, is that show even still around?  Do kids today even know about Barney?  Anyway, I love the purples in this garden looking floral jacket.  I got this green top from Jacob at Richmond Centre while I worked there.  I remember one time I wore it and my manager thought I wasn’t following the dress code because she didn’t realize that it was a top that we currently sold.  It’s simple, but I love this shade of green.  I got the matching scarf from one of the scarf vendors in the UBC Sub.  The ends are kind of unravelling a bit at this point and it doesn’t provide that much warmth, but it can still make a fashion statement.  And of course I’m wearing all my favourite green and gold jewellery.

But seriously though, is Barney still a thing?

Thirty-seventh day of work selfie

Yes, I finally wore an outfit that matched my Winners cell phone case!  I love leopard print.  Some people find it weird that I have so many articles of clothing in leopard print but I don’t care.  I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it and I think it looks good.  I got this sweater from H&M.  They had it in a bunch of solid colours as well, but obviously this one was the best.  The matching scarf is from that Metrotown scarf kiosk.  Yes, they had other options besides sparkly.  And the necklace is from Payless.  Because every shoe store should have a good selection of nickel free jewellery.  I wore this blue Dynamite dress during my first week of work, but it’s one of my favourites, so why not wear it again?  I think blue pairs nicely with leopard print.  These earrings are from Claire’s.  I hadn’t worn them in a while but they seemed to go with this outfit. Leopard print forever!
