Thanks for all the great comments on yesterday’s post. Now, onto part two of our Stampede fashion series for The Core!
Spend one day at the Stampede and you’ll quickly realize that whole rodeo thing is just a sideshow to the parties. The festivities go on 24 hours a day and you can celebrate ’round the clock. Good boots, a breezy dress and a few extra layers (we can’t tell you how many times we’ve walked home in the cold because we couldn’t get a taxi!) always serve us well at a Stampede party. To finish off the outfit, we believe in adding something a little random — like, say, a Gucci horse bit necklace that’s worth as much as a Stampede rodeo purse. Sounds crazy, we know, but Stampede is no place for practicality. You won’t hear that “p” word anywhere in Calgary between July 6 and 15th.
For going out, we love this pink Debutante dress from Aritzia (comes in white, too!). You could always throw a belt — or a Gucci necklace — around the waist. We’d pair it with some comfy Frye short boots, and a great bag from Rebecca Minkoff. (Holt Renfrew carries Gucci, Frye and Rebecca Minkoff!) The jacket below comes from the Gap.
We still have a $50 gift card for The Core to give away to one lucky reader. To enter the draw, just leave us a comment on today’s blog post. You can enter again even if you commented yesterday. Make sure to comment before midnight on Thursday. We’ll announce the winner on Friday!
