I know it’s hot as hell today, but I didn’t feel like shaving so I’m wearing pants. Besides, I said I didn’t want to let the weather dictate my choice of clothing. If I’d read the news before I left the house this morning, I probably would’ve worn something rainbow coloured to celebrate marriage equality in the States. I got this top at a department store called Red Apple in Revelstoke. I went there with my family a couple years ago because my dad had a reunion with some of his high school buddies. I don’t think I could ever live in a small town. Shopping wise, I was like “This is it?”. Red Apple is kind of like a Winners or a Walmart, but smaller with not as much stuff. But I managed to pick up few nice things there, this top included. My mint green cardigan is from Jacob and my black pants are from Winners. My Swarovski necklace was a Christmas gift from my cousins. My bracelet is from Sears and my ring is from UBC. These earrings are new. I got them at Payless, along with some other BOGO jewellery over the weekend. I guess maybe I’ll shave tomorrow and start wearing dresses again. Maybe.
I got this blue top from Suzy Shier. I also have it in black, but they were like $5 each, so why would I not buy more than one? I think it was at Richmond Centre before they closed so maybe that’s why it was so cheap. My purple sweater is from Urban Behavior in Metrotown. Blue and purple are two of my favourite colours and I love pairing them together. My jewellery includes my Swarovski necklace, Claire’s earrings, UBC ring, and Dollarama bracelet. It’s getting warmer so I may not be wearing these Marshalls pants for much longer.
Of course I had to wear my grey Vero Moda blazer from London Drugs again. The only thing I don’t like about this blazer is that the pockets are fake. I love pockets because I always have random stuff with me and they always come in handy, so fake pockets are kind of like a slap in the face. But it’s okay. They are forgiven, because this blazer is otherwise just so fabulous. I feel like this grey goes well with navy, so I paired it with this navy top that I got at La Vie En Rose. I suppose it’s technically meant as a pajama top or loungewear or whatever, but I felt like it was too nice to have its use be limited to just in the house. I wanted a really light scarf for that day so I chose my rainbow looking one from the UBC Sub. And I decided to wear my Swarovski necklace again with my Payless earrings, UBC Sub ring, and Suzy Shier bracelet. And Marshalls pants.I’m going to miss wearing blazers when the weather gets too hot.
Okay, so this is definitely my new favourite blazer! I noticed it when I was at London Drugs a few times, and eventually decided to try it on. Then I didn’t buy it right away, but went back a couple days later and made it mine. I’ve never bought clothes at London Drugs before. Usually it’s my main stop for food and health and beauty essentials. Who knew it was also a great place for professional clothing? They sell Vero Moda stuff there now for decent prices so this may not be the end of my buying clothing there, since I love Vero Moda and Vero Moda blazers. Grey may be considered kind of plain, but I just love the shape and the fit of this blazer so much. I paired it with the blue dress that I had worn on my first day of work with a different Vero Moda blazer. This dress just seems to go well with blazers. I got this Swarovski necklace as a Christmas present a few years ago from my cousins. It’s my favourite shorter necklace and I’ll be wearing it more now that it’s warmer and I don’t need to cover up with scarves. I got my music note earrings at a jewellery vendor at the PNE last summer, along with a few other random silver earrings in the shapes of various objects.London Drugs might just be my new favourite clothing store.
