Ninetieth day of work selfie

I’m happy to report that there have been no wardrobe malfunctions today.  Yet.  Perhaps I can make it through the whole day without incident.  I got this purple dress at the Fiji Day festival at Swanguard Stadium in Burnaby a few weeks ago.  It was at this point that my friend yelled at me for buying too many dresses.  She later apologized and said she only yelled because she was hungry.  But she’s right, I do have a lot of summer dresses now.  But that’s pretty much all I wear right now.  Most people have several pairs of jeans and several pairs of shorts.  I don’t.  I have my dresses.

I got this white sweater at Old Navy at Richmond Centre.  I don’t wear white that often.  I never really thought it looked that good on me, and it also tends to get dirty rather quickly.  I got my necklace at the Blim Market festival downtown a few weeks ago.  Wait, I lied when I said there had been no malfunctions today.  As I was walking down the hall earlier, I kicked something on the floor.  It was the pendant of my necklace that had somehow fallen off.  Luckily, I was able to put it back on the chain.  I may need to get some pliers to secure it and ensure it doesn’t fall off again.

I got my earrings at Claire’s and my iPhone case at Aldo, both downtown.   I got my bracelet at Carnaval del Sol at Pacific Concord Place a few weeks ago.  I don’t have any purple bracelets so I decided to go with white.  My ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day.  My nail polish is chipping at an alarming rate.  I should’ve put on a top coat sooner.  Does my hair look dirty to you?  That’s because it is.  And I like it that way.

Eighty-ninth day of work selfie 

I had some wardrobe malfunctions this morning right before I left the house.  It’s a good thing it didn’t happen after I’d already left.  But I didn’t have time to change my outfit.  Nor did I want to.  I got this dress from a vendor at the Caribbean Days Festival at Waterfront Park in North Vancouver on the weekend.  The guy actually had a small fitting room, so I didn’t have to try on dresses over my clothes like I normally do at street festivals.  This was one of the three dresses I bought, and I think the nicest of them.  I really like the blues and the greens and the different lengths at the bottom of the dress.

But this morning, the left strap broke completely off.  I have no idea how it tore in two places, but somehow it did.  All I had at my disposal was a large safety pin and a small bobby pin.  I somehow managed to reattach the strap and secure it in place with these two items.  I’m resourceful, like Macgyver.  I obviously did a bad job of it, because you can still see the bobby pin and the safety pin.  But I mean it’s just for now, so that I could wear the dress today.  Eventually I will have to attempt to sew the strap back on.  Or get someone else with better sewing skills to do it for me.

For now, you can’t tell anything is wrong because I’ve covered it with my green Jacob cardigan.  I got one of my bracelets at Sears and the other one at Suzy Shier.  My green ring is from Greek Day on Broadway and my blue ring is from the Blim Market Festival on Granville.  My necklace is from Payless and my earrings are from Greek Day.  My hair is definitely becoming less and less straight, but I’d like to think it still looks good.  I tried to touch up my nails again so that they can look good while matching my outfit.  I’m wearing makeup because it’s my birthday week and I can.
