This post is very late.
Last Friday was Creole Day here on my beautiful island Dominica. This is a day when we dress in our traditional wear. The girls in what we call the Jupe (jhipp) and the women in a robe (wobe) dwiyet. Men wear a white shirt and a black pants with a red sash across the waist. These days however, not many women or girls wear it the traditional way. Rather, we have our own designs or styles made but with the same cloth of the traditional wear which is the Madras Cloth. I have posted a pic of the Madras Cloth lower in the post.
Its a day when we eat mainly local dishes the best being crab callaloo. My fav dish ever!
I did my mani to match my skirt. I used three colors for the base and three others to stamp (My polishes are mainly santee polishes).Creole Day is a pretty colorful day.
Some of my co-workers and I on Creole Day. Not everyone is dressed for the occasion.

My prayers and thought go out to those from New York/New Jersy. May the recovery process be a speedy one.
