After all that colour, I thought I would go back to classic black and white. I got this dress from the Guess outlet store in Las Vegas last year. It’s a really nice summer dress, but I don’t wear it that often because I don’t wear white that often. Because I’m a messy person and white always gets dirty. Like I just noticed a tiny blue spot at the bottom of the dress. I have no idea what it is. Nail polish maybe? I can’t think of any other blue substance this dress may have come into contact with. It’s very small and unnoticeable though, thankfully. Wait, I think I’ve gone and stained it slightly in another spot with avocado from lunch. Damnit. I knew this would happen.
My black blazer is new. I got it from Winners. It was just so snazzy looking that I had to try it on. I had intended to save it for the fall, but it was cool enough out today that I thought I would bring it out early. Everyone needs a black blazer as part of their professional wardrobe.
I got my necklace from Sears and my earrings from Payless. My shiny bracelet is from Car Free Day on Main Street and my shiny black ring is from Carnaval del Sol at Conford Pacific Place. Black and white doesn’t have to be dull if you glam it up a bit.
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.
I got this patterned top and this black sweater at Ross Dress For Less in the States. I remember there were other colours of the sweater that I contemplated before deciding on the black one. The white one was nice, but I knew I’d get it dirty. I already had other black sweaters, but this one was special because of the little diamonds along the zipper. I like how they match the ones on my necklace. I love adding a little bit of sparkle to a darker outfit. I think my hair may have still been wet in this picture. Who has time to dry their hair in the morning? I’d rather spend that time putting together an outfit.
This white top is so old that I bought it at Mariposa. Does that store even exist anymore? That used to be one of my go to stores when I was a lot younger because it was cheap. Like, my dress for my graduation from elementary school was purchased from there. And then I continued shopping there in high school. I’m just surprised this top is still white after all these years. I repeated this blue Sears sweater because I only have so many sweaters. I think this scarf was from another Orb warehouse sale. Speaking of which, there was one this weekend in Delta. But no, I didn’t go. I own too much from there already. Marshalls pants because they’re the only ones that really fit. Blue sparkly jewellery just goes best with this sweater. Necklace and ring from UBC, earrings probably from a kiosk, bracelet from the dollar store.
What’s worse, dollar store jewellery, or a top that’s over ten years old?
