Calgary Stampede Style with Tara Whittaker Photography and Avenue Magazine July 03 2015

We think that over the past few years "Stampede Style" has become much more than just denim and a pair of cowboy boots. There was so much variety in the recent Stampede street style photos we sifted through in search of inspiration. We love the idea of a masculine, dark denim button-up shirt, paired with a lady-length tulle skirt and a statement necklace, or a pair of high-waisted denim shorts with a printed shirt knotted at the waist. Even a little slip dress with a denim jacket and a pair of ankle boots can be stampede-appropriate, while still feeling pretty. We are a very feminine boutique, so it was fun to add a "dressed-up" twist to the classic idea of what is stampede fashion. 

We teamed up with Tara Whittaker Photography, Avenue Magazine and some other wonderful vendors (see below) to bring you some fantastic Stampede style our way (with a pretty spin). Tara styled the tablescape and setting as a gorgeous Stampede-themed Bachelorette party. She looked to the Calgary landscape for inspiration: "Think barley fields, the wild sage in Nose Hill Park and the river rocks made smooth by the waters of the Bow River. Focusing on the “pretty” side of Stampede I added touches of crocheted lace for some country charm. The colour palette included blush, dove grey, sage green and pops of blue denim."
