Calgary STAMPEDE: what to wear this year: western style


Our Stampede celebration is about lots of things ... chuck wagon races, rodeo, stampede parade...for me it is about what people wear ... the fashion aspect of it. Well, for some it is the same...old same old, but western clothing can be trendy and fun and modern or updated each year of course.

I am always curious about the creativity of people because this is the one time a year they let go loose and experiment and as a fashion stylist it is my fun to watch it each year.... and HERE is what they did wear last year...!

And before it starts on Friday with the famous Stampede Parade, and for the lovers of western modern style, here is what cought my eye this year when it comes to cowgirl looks.

We (me and my son) also went to buy cowboy boots at the local Alberta boot company, yes they are the best....will custom make them and understand the look. 






I did get a lot of help selecting those boots ... smiles... from the store doggy and my little fun loving boy...







And then we went off to a mall to get this cute handsome boy his cowboy looks:









It was tiring and we were done for the day:




Have a great day!
