The Calgary Stampede begins next week (woot!), but we’ve been thinking about our wardrobes for a long time now. (ie. You know you’re a Calgarian when you’re shopping in Los Angeles in April and you pull things off the rack, saying, “How cute would this dress be for Stampede?”). If you’ve never been to the Stampede, here’s how it works, fashion-wise: everyone dresses up. You could just wear jeans, boots and plaid shirts for 10 days straight and call it a day (or a Stampede), or you could add your own personal touch. We prefer the latter approach. So, when The Core asked us to pull together a look that we’d wear during the Calgary Stampede, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to share a few of the Toque Girls’ favourites. Today, we’ve assembled a Stampede-worthy look for work; tomorrow, we’ll share our party picks. We love the outfit below for its slight hippy-ish vibe, not to mention the killer Alexis Bittar bangle.
- O’keeffe Antique Silver Skull Bracelet by Alexis Bittar, carried at Holt Renfrew
- Dress by Joie, available at Holt Renfrew
- Annie Oakley bag in Vintage, available at Roots
- Marrs boots by Aldo
We 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 or tomorrow’s blog post. We’ll announce the winner on Friday!
