Forsythia | Vintage 1950s 1960s red white striped Diner Dame Candy Striper dress
Happy Birthday Singapore!
This lady flies high and proud. It’s a day to call our own. A day fought for with fortitude and far-sightedness, though also accompanied by much gravity and grit.
We hope this dress brings out all those beautiful parts of you, even as we continue to go forth and have the courage to change what needs to be changed. The red and the white both mean something.
