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-eighth day of work selfie

Oh my God, I’m actually wearing pants!  I may or may not have run out of dresses at this point.  Or the weather was getting better and I didn’t want to wear boots but I couldn’t find flats or other appropriate shoes to go with my dresses.  My toenails are not currently ready for the public.  Do you ever get annoyed and clip them, but then you keep going and clip them too close to the skin, and not even evenly?  Or is that just something weird that I do?  The point is, they’re too short right now, and my pinky toes barely even have a nail.  I’ll have to wait until they grow to a decent length and then get myself a pedicure before I bust out the sandals.  Also, I haven’t shaved my legs and the one pair of leggings I have are kind of thick, so yeah.  Pants!  I got these black pants the one time my friend took me to Marshalls after Pirate Pak Day at Whitespot.  The purple top is from Ross Dress for Less in the States and the black cardigan is from Bryan’s at Lansdowne Centre.  The scarf is from an Orb Warehouse sale.  I guess I used to always buy scarves when I went to those.  The necklace is from a Christmas craft fair I went to at Steveston Community Centre with my parents last year.  I like that it’s adjustable so you can wear it at various lengths, long or short.  Plus, it’s got just the right amount of bling.  You can’t really tell from the picture, but my Claire’s earrings are in the shape of little black safety pins.  And for added bling, my UBC SUB ring and my dollar store bracelet.  Because that’s how classy I am.

I hate pants because it’s so damn hard to find a pair that actually fit.  So you’ll likely be seeing a lot of these ones until I miraculously find a new pair.
