This week, we have story from Guelph, Ontario. The author, Kendra Dewar, has recently been enrolled in literacy classes at Action Read in Guelph. The story below came out of a short-term group that was working on housing issues with their housing educator.
Reitman’s said "brown is the black for the season this year."
Penningtons said "the style for the season is Victorian lace, ruffled tops and slim pants." Their colors are brown, red, green, and nature colors.
Blush said "the style for this season is slim jeans, tunic style tops." Their colors are brown, grey, and black.
Weekenders is a clothing line that is sold from peoples' homes. They have long jackets, short jackets, printed clothing, long and short skirts. Their colors are browns, greens, blue, orange, and red.
