One hundredth day of work selfie

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.

Seventy-fourth day of work selfie

I thought I’d wear another one of my colourful dresses again.  It’s possible that I got this dress from Winners but I’m really not sure.  I guess we’ll never know.  I got the sweater from H&M.  My pink bracelet is from a Christmas craft fair at Steveston Community Centre in Richmond.  My black beaded necklace and my small hoop earrings are from Claire’s.  And my ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day.  The guy eventually did respond to my message and said I could still exchange the rings for a bigger size at his next event.  But I’m not sure what his next event will be.  And I’ve already worn them.  And once the heat subsides, they may not be too tight.  So whatever.

Sixty-seventh day of work selfie

I know it’s hot as hell today, but I didn’t feel like shaving so I’m wearing pants.  Besides, I said I didn’t want to let the weather dictate my choice of clothing.  If I’d read the news before I left the house this morning, I probably would’ve worn something rainbow coloured to celebrate marriage equality in the States.  I got this top at a department store called Red Apple in Revelstoke.  I went there with my family a couple years ago because my dad had a reunion with some of his high school buddies.  I don’t think I could ever live in a small town.  Shopping wise, I was like “This is it?”.  Red Apple is kind of like a Winners or a Walmart, but smaller with not as much stuff.  But I managed to pick up few nice things there, this top included.  My mint green cardigan is from Jacob and my black pants are from Winners.  My Swarovski necklace was a Christmas gift from my cousins.  My bracelet is from Sears and my ring is from UBC.  These earrings are new.  I got them at Payless, along with some other BOGO jewellery over the weekend.  I guess maybe I’ll shave tomorrow and start wearing dresses again.  Maybe.

Sixty-fifth day of work selfie

No, your eyes do not deceive you, I am indeed wearing pants.  I heard it would be cloudy and overcast today so I thought I would take a bit of a break from the dresses.  As much as I would love to live the rest of my life without having to wear pants, it’s just not that feasible.  At least I got the opportunity to wear this shiny leopard print top from Ross Dress For Less.  Yay, my outfit matches my Winners iPhone case.  I should probably switch up my phone case at some point, I’ve had this one on there for a while now.  But it’s just so sturdy and well fitted, not like other cases that can be flimsy and nondurable.  I love my phone, and when you love something, you want to protect it.  Since my top is shiny, I paired it with my shiny Aritzia sweater.  I just got these pants from Winners.  They’re not full length pants, because I refuse to wear full length pants in the summer.  Apparently I’m a size large when it comes to pants at Winners.  My leopard print heart necklace is from Payless, my earrings are from Claire’s, and my ring is from UBC.  I got my shiny bracelet at Car Free Day on Main Street on Sunday.  Shiny outfits don’t just have to be for special occasions.  Sometimes you just want to add a little sparkle on a typical Wednesday work day.

Fifty-fifth day of work selfie

This wasn’t what I was originally going to wear today, but I had some unforeseen issues with my initial outfit and this was the next best option. I think I got this dress at Winners.  I hate birds, but I love the bright colours on this dress.  I got the black sweater at Sears.  I have a lot of black sweaters but this is the only one I could find this morning. My pink flip-flop necklace is from a jewellery vendor at the UBC student union building.  It was this necklace that initially drew my attention to that tables, where I then ended up buying three other necklaces and two rings, including the black one I’m wearing here.  I don’t know if you can tell, but my little green earrings from Claire’s are also in the shape of flip-flops.  I got my pink bracelet from a Christmas craft fair at Steveston Community Centre in Richmond.  They threw in the bracelet for free because I’d purchased a few of their necklaces, so this was a nice added bonus.

Forty-second day of work selfie

Yes, I own two of the same blazer in different colours.  After finding that green Vero Moda blazer at Winners, I discovered that The Bay had it in red.  Red is just so bold and bright and wanted to add more of it to my wardrobe.  But that mint green blazer was such a lovely colour too.  I debated briefly and then decided to purchase the red one as well.  One can never have too many Vero Moda blazers.  I just feel ready to take on the world when I wear it.  I got this black top from H&M.  I think it was at the one at West Edmonton Mall actually.  I’ve only been there once.  I was there for my brother’s and sister’s youth bowling tournament when they made it to the Nationals.  My dad was a coach and so they needed another adult to stay with them while he went to meetings.  So I got to spend 3 days standing in a bowling alley.  But on the first day, we had free time to briefly visit the mall.  I remember I almost bought this top in green, but I’m glad I decided on the black.  I remember there was no PST because it was Alberta so I was pleasantly surprised.  My video game heart necklace is from Fan Expo Expo Vancouver and my red earrings are from a kiosk at Lansdowne Centre.

Thirty-seventh day of work selfie

Yes, I finally wore an outfit that matched my Winners cell phone case!  I love leopard print.  Some people find it weird that I have so many articles of clothing in leopard print but I don’t care.  I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it and I think it looks good.  I got this sweater from H&M.  They had it in a bunch of solid colours as well, but obviously this one was the best.  The matching scarf is from that Metrotown scarf kiosk.  Yes, they had other options besides sparkly.  And the necklace is from Payless.  Because every shoe store should have a good selection of nickel free jewellery.  I wore this blue Dynamite dress during my first week of work, but it’s one of my favourites, so why not wear it again?  I think blue pairs nicely with leopard print.  These earrings are from Claire’s.  I hadn’t worn them in a while but they seemed to go with this outfit. Leopard print forever!
