It was Canada Day on July 1st this week. I’m so proud to be born here and to have had the privilege of my parents coming here as immigrants 70 years ago from Italy. This magnificent country has given us so many opportunities, privileges, rights and all in safety. I’m truly grateful.
That being said, this great country must also be recognized as having had a not so shiny past, a brutal one at that. The past weeks have revealed even more horrific and tragic crimes against our Indigenous People. It’s like a black hole that no one wants to look into of how engulfing it is. Atrocious and deeply saddening.
But of course, this is mainly a fashion blog…and so no doubt you’re expecting some looks. For Canada Day I did not wear my traditional Canada tee. In solidarity and respect for those who lost their lives in residential schools and also the survivors, my thoughts, prayers and a deep need to learn so much more is how I spent most of this day as a Canadian. I also wore Orange.
Last week I told you that I’ve been kind of splurging on some vintage pieces. Well here are some I wore this week!
Next- oh how I love this!! Another fabulous skirt again by La Retro Girl- the print on this is just incredibly bright and uplifting. I styled it with a top I got in Rome, made locally there, a few years ago. The hat you ask? Doesn’t it look like it was made for the outfit? I got this at the Dollarama the other day when I was in there for some knick-knacks. I spotted it and thought of course I’ll be wearing this forever!
