Supporting Canadian: Fashion

With The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (plus Prince George and Princess Charlotte) arriving in my hometown of Vancouver in a few days, I thought I would showcase some Canadian fashion brands for the ‘middle class’ (i.e. not the sort of brands with a security guard or stuffy salesperson turning you away with one look).

1950’s Green Velvet Dress

When I first saw this 1950’s green velvet dress, I knew I had to have it. As you may know, green is one of my favourite colours and I wanted something I could wear for Christmas, St Patrick’s Day, and other formal (or informal) functions. I was surprised it hadn’t sold already so when my …
