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.

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-ninth day of work selfie

I thought I would wear something red in my outfit today since tomorrow is Canada Day.  I don’t know if you can tell but if you look closely you can see that my earrings are little Canada flags.  I found them at Claire’s and thought they were cute.  My red top is from Suzy Shier from several years ago.  I just bought this skirt at Old Navy over the weekend.  I think it may actually be the only skirt I have that fits me right now.  Wearing dresses is so much easier.  Less pieces of clothing to put together.  My outfit doesn’t even really match right now but oh well.  I was trying to find a sweater this morning and my mom looked outside and was like “Does it look like you need a sweater?”.  But I explained that I like to wear one in the office because the temperature is good inside the building.  I just grabbed this black Bryan’s cardigan before I left the house.  

I unfortunately did not get a matching Canada flag necklace to go with my earrings, so I wore this key and rose Claire’s necklace instead.  My bracelet is from Dollarama and my purple ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day.  Yes, I’m still wearing it even though it’s too tight.  I tried contacting the vendor, because I have his business card but I haven’t received a response.  I don’t expect him to take it back, but it would be nice if he could let me exchange the second ring I bought, which seems to be even tighter than this one.  Also I got my eyebrows done last week if anyone cares.  Can you even tell or should I not have bothered?

Sixty-sixth day of work selfie

I’m not dressed very summery today.  But screw the weather, I’ll wear what I want.  Besides, temperatures are supposed to soar this weekend, so I’ll save the summery dresses for that.  I got this top at an Orb warehouse sale.  The red sweater is from Sears and the pants are from Winners.  My Nintendo heart necklace is from Fan Expo Vancouver, my bracelet is from Dollarama, and my ring is from UBC.  My earrings are new, I got them from a vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street on Sunday.  The same vendor I got the blue earrings from, who called me back to his booth to offer me a free third pair of earrings if I bought the first two.  I touched up my nail polish with a clear coat of polish.  Do they look shinier now?  I realized I should have painted them red since Canada Day is coming up next week.  I don’t want to remove the polish and repaint them since they actually look decent.  But it’s okay, I have plenty of red jewellery and clothing to make up for it. 

Fifty-seventh day of work selfie

I feel like I should have worn pants and a jacket today.  Despite the sunshine, it was so damn windy this morning.  And of course it’s always on the excessively windy or rainy or cold days that the buses decide to show up late.  The wind messed up my already messy hair even more.  But I’m going to go ahead and let my outfit embody spring even if the weather doesn’t.  I got this dress at a random tourist shop in Las Vegas and this sweater at a random store that used to be in Richmond.  My necklace and ring are from a random UBC vendor and my earrings are from a random mall kiosk.  The weather is actually a lot nicer in the afternoon and evening.  Perhaps I should wear a different outfit in the morning and then change later on?  But then would I have to take two work selfies if I did that?  Seems a bit excessive.  You know, even more so than the idea of taking daily selfies in the first place.
