Not even secret shopping that I would deny doing and then pretend I bought the item after the 30 days! Not even the normally $250 jeans that I saw on sale for $100 today! (that one hurt).
I'll talk more about my admitted shopping problem when I post todays outfit.. right now we are talking about day 20 (Saturday... aka yesterday)
Saturday night consisted of dinner at Ebisu and then the fireworks.
When Mike's friend told us that dinner was at the Ebisu on Robson Mike was really happy. He's been looking to try the restaurants in his new area and this restaurant was only a 5 minute walk away! I was also happy because a 5 minute walk meant I could wear inappropriately high heels to dinner! Success!
My earrings were a gift from Alicia. I do believe they are from Plum but it's been a few years since I received them so my old lady memory could be incorrect.
.I have to admit that any outfit involving my Zara high waisted shorts will immediately fall into my 'favourites' category. I never understood what love was until I found these shorts.
After dinner I switched into my flat sandals so we could walk down to the fireworks. It wasn't a very far walk but after a pitcher of sangria I decided to make the mature decision to not drink and walk in heels.
Anyone who knows me is now thinking "But Melissa, you don't like fireworks. Or crowds of annoying people. Did you get frustrated and kill anyone?"
Actually no! And you'll be surprised to hear that the fireworks were MY idea! Mike and I went last year and I really enjoyed myself. I tend to think that if you've seen one fireworks show you've seen them all but it's more just the atmosphere of the night that I enjoyed.
I knew that it would be crazy busy so I braced myself for frustrating people. My only complaints are people who find it necessary to swear really loudly while walking through crowds -- we get it, you know bad words. You don't need to prove to everyone you are a bad ass by using all of these bad words in one really loud sentence.
I also really dislike when people smoke when they are in crowds. You made the decision to smoke, I didn't and I have asthma. STOP IT. Oh, and when people litter. Didn't we cover how to use garbage cans in kindergarten? Should we take a refresher course in high school?
It was a really gorgeous night overall.
Sushi, sangria, fireworks and amazing weather. Oh Vancouver, you really know the way into a girl's heart.
