Dominion Day in Red and White Gingham


fashion with compassion

It’s been 150 years since Canada became a nation. July 1st used to be called Dominion Day when I was young.

I live in a humungous village with 35 million people! Canada means “village” in Huron-Iroquois, and today our VILLAGE is 150 years old.

I bought this red and white gingham summer dress with a vintage vibe especially for a ’50s birthday party I was invited to. Unfortunately, it didn’t arrive on time for the party, but I’m getting lots of wear out of it during these Canada Day festivities.

Version 2

It’s a full circle dress, perfect for twirling on the dance floor.

Go through the bridge and walk into a quaint little village with authentic houses and shops built over a hundred years ago.
