Ninety-ninth day of work selfie

I told you I’ve been wearing more pink this summer.  My sister gave me this dress for my birthday last year.  She has good taste.  I mean, of course she has good taste, she borrows my clothes sometimes.  She got it at Bryan’s.  I think she actually bought it for herself and then didn’t like the way it looked on her and then decided to gift it to me.  But whatever.  She’s really into rainbow designs.  I wore this dress to the Vancouver Pride Parade last year because it’s so rainbow like.

My pink cardigan is from the Plenty warehouse sale at the Vancouver Convention Centre during Easter long weekend.  My necklace and earrings are both from Payless.  My bracelet is from Sears and my ring is from the Blim Market street festival downtown last month.  I’m kind of liking my hair being dirty and messy.  It kind of works.  Or maybe it doesn’t.  But whatever.

Seventy-seventh day of work selfie 

It was kind of cold this morning so I actually wore pants.  I got them from La Vie En Rose Aqua at Richmond Centre.  My purple top is from the Plenty warehouse sale that took place at the Vancouver Convention Centre during Easter long weekend.  My black sweater is from the Sears that used to be at Richmond Centre.  I got my necklace from a vendor at Greek Day on Broadway a few weeks ago.  That same vendor is at literally every street festival I go to.  And I always end up buying stuff from there.  I got this new black ring from them yesterday at Carnaval del Sol at Concord Pacific Place.  I got my dangly purple earrings from a vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street last month.  My black bracelet is from Claire’s at Richmond Centre and my purple ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day.  I feel like maybe a should keep a thicker sweater in my office because it’s colder inside than it is outside.  Or maybe a blanket?

Sixty-first day of work selfie

So you can’t really tell from the photo, but this dress is long and almost goes down to my ankles.  Well not quite, but it would if I were shorter.  I don’t tend to wear a lot of long dresses, because I always find they look weird for some reason, but maybe that’s just because I’m not used to wearing them.  I got this one from Ross Dress For Less in the States and this is my first time wearing it.  I’ve decided I like long dresses now.  I heard it was going to be cold and rainy today.  It wasn’t this morning, but it is now.  I didn’t want to wear pants, and I didn’t want to re-shave my legs, so this dress worked out well.  You might not be able to see in the picture, but the dress has black and grey stripes across it.  I wore grey in honour of the new Fifty Shades of Grey book that was released today.  No, I’m kidding, I totally didn’t, it was just a coincidence.  Why would I want to celebrate such a gross insult to literature?  I heard that this new version is even worse than the original and I have no idea how that’s even possible.  I tried to read the first book and couldn’t because I was just so shocked and disgusted by the horrible grammar and writing style.  Anyway, since I knew it would get cooler today, I paired this dress with my purple jacket that I got at the Plenty warehouse sale and the Vancouver Convention Centre during Easter weekend this year.  I love it for its unique zippers and pockets.  My necklace is from Her Story Lockets and I got it when they had a booth at the PNE Marketplace last summer, and my lock earrings are from another booth that was also at the PNE during that time.  And my ring, of course, is from UBC.  

I wish the lighting was better so you could actually see the dress properly.  And I wish I had a full length mirror.  Oh well.

Twenty-third day of work selfie

I got this bright pink dress from La Vie En Rose Aqua at Richmond Centre.  Because I love buying dresses from lingerie & swim stores.  This was my first time wearing it.  The purple jacket is from the Plenty warehouse sale I went to at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Easter long weekend.  I like that it has a side diagonal zipper as opposed to one straight down the front.  The colourful scarf is from one of the scarf vendors at the UBC student union building and my earrings are from Claire’s.  There’s a possibility that I was beginning to run out of new matching outfits by this point, because these aren’t normally colours that I would pair together.  But I’d like to think that I made it work. 

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?
