Stampede Pretty - What to Wear to the Calgary Stampede June 21 2018

We can't believe that the Calgary Stampede kicks off in just two weeks! It always seems to sneak up on us, but this year we got a head start with our outfits and we are keeping it #stampedepretty! If you're feeling like your plaid shirt and jean shorts just won't cut it this year we've got tons of pretty ideas below - styled by us and shot by local photographer Brooke-Lynn Garrioch.

Spring 2018 Lookbook with Sarah Vaughan Photography - Part Two May 24 2018

If you haven't checked out Part One of our lookbook yet it's a must! Part two features the prettiest floral wrap dress, a little jacket with the most amazing detailing and the most flirty little two-piece set by Show Me Your Mumu!

Our lovely Jan wears the prettiest floral wrap dress by our newest Australian brand Auguste the Label. We paired her dress with a Melanie Auld choker and Lisbeth lariat (perfect for those low necklines), as well as some gorgeous Sarah Mulder hoop earrings. 

The pretty floral print on her dress is also available in a number of other styles here!

Mikaela is wearing the sweetest little skirt and top from Show Me Your Mumu with a flirty slit in the skirt, feminine ruffles and a hint of sparkle in the pinstripe fabric! Her moonstone layering necklace is another favourite by Melanie Auld and her earrings are by Laurie Fleming.

Finally we have London in our favourite little cropped jacket with tassel fringe. The amount of detail on this little jacket is insane, and it pairs so perfectly with her braided crown!

Florals: Flowers By Janie 
Hair and Makeup: Meg and Delainey from the Vanity Vault 
Models: Numa Models

Spring 2018 Lookbook with Sarah Vaughan Photography May 06 2018

This is one of our favourite lookbooks to date! So many fun pops of pink, pretty florals (thanks Flowers By Janie), romantic hair styles and makeup (from our girls Meg and Delainey at the Vanity Vault) and the prettiest gals from Numa Models! And of course all of it was brought together by the super talented Calgary wedding photographer Sarah Vaughan who captured our spring looks perfectly!

And speaking of pretty and pink - how about the gorgeous trench coat (with adorable bow details) on our girl London?! Probably our number one spring piece, and it's so versatile! We styled it here with denim and an ultra-feminine high-neck blouse, but it would be perfect with a little dress as well. It would even work great with cocktail attire!

London's blush suede clutch is available here. Her ring is from Melanie Auld Jewelry (available in-store only) and her delicate threader earrings are by Laurie Fleming (also available in-store). Her jeans are by Part Two, one of our favourite Danish brands, they're just $139 and are available in a number of washes in-store.

Now let's talk about brunette beauty Jan! She's styled in our favourite blush bomber from Rails, with the prettiest floral crop top (also Rails) and our best-selling mid-rise skinny denim from Black Orchid. Her necklace is by Melanie Auld, her ring is by Leah Alexandra and her hoop earrings are by Sarah Mulder Jewelry. And in case you didn't know - ALL of our jewelry is Canadian made and designed. How cool is that?! 

Jan's bag is currently sold out, but we will be restocking it in early June (in black and grey)!

And finally we have Mikaela looking stunning in our favourite silk floral dress of the season by Danish brand NoaNoa. Paired with a loose updo, this look could go from work to date-night in a flash! She's wearing our favourite Laurie Fleming mismatched earrings with two pretty moonstone rings by Melanie Auld.

Holiday Trend Guide November 29 2017

The holiday season is upon us, which means it's time to find the perfect looks for all of your upcoming events! Our manager Jasmine has put together some of our favourite holiday trends accompanied by inspirational photos as well as images of the pretty pieces we have in-store!

#1 VELVET

From shoes and tops, to dresses and blazers - velvet is everywhere this holiday season! We love paring a black velvet dress with ankle booties for an edgier look, but if you are hesitant to wear velvet all over you can add a velvet shoe or handbag for a pop of interest to your holiday ensemble! We are swooning over these blush velvet pumps!

Shop our velvet pants and For Love and Lemons Velvet Dress in-store or online!

#2 SEQUINS

No holiday season is complete without sequins! This season try something different and go for a knee-length sequin skirt and pair it with a ruffle, or bell sleeved sweater and drop earrings; it’s a great look for a holiday work party or dinner. If you aren’t a skirt gal, slip on a long sleeve sequin dress with a low back for a subtle yet sexy look, we love this dress by Wyldr!

Shop our sequin favourites in-store, or online!

#3 BURGUNDY

Shades of red are always popular over the holiday season, however we prefer a rich merlot or burgundy color this season - especially when done in a lace fabric. A fitted lace dress, or skirt with a nude underlay is just the right amount of sexy! We love how Candice Swaenpol matched her lipstick and heels to her dress for a monochromatic look!

Shop lace dress (top left) and skirt in-store, shop embellished dress here.

#4 LACE AND METALLIC

Metallic hues are no longer just meant for your accessories! This season we are seeing them on jackets, skirts, pants and tops! We love a metallic gold or silver pleated midi skirt with a sheer lace top or a lace dress with pops of metallic, like this For Love and Lemons lace ruffle dress. Both looks work well with tights and booties or a simple pump!

Shop our For Love and Lemons Lace dresses with metallic detailing here (long sleeve) and here (sleeveless) as well as the Jaylyn crop (new champagne colour coming soon!) and this pretty peplum metallic lace top here. Click here for more pretty metallics available online and visit us in-store for even more selection!

#5 TULLE

We think every woman needs a little bit of tulle in her wardrobe and holiday events are the perfect excuse to wear it! We like the look of a long-sleeved crop top with a midi tulle skirt. The skirt is high waisted so it meets perfectly with the crop top, and shows little-to-no skin. If crop tops aren’t your thing we recommend wearing a bodysuit with lace detailing. Complete the look with a red lip and pumps and your holiday party ready!
