Even though I’m much more of a Sled Island and Folk Festival kind of gal, I decided that I couldn’t completely ignore a major event that Calgary is known and loved for…you guessed it, Stampede. With the 100th anniversary this year, it wasn’t just major but also historical, and so I decided to celebrate in style and do it a couple of days early at the Field Law Stampede bash.
I was lucky in that I was actually able to find some great western inspired wear and still be able to satisfy my Street Style Huntress ways. Naturally, I did this while enjoying the amazing spread that the party had to offer, including a salad tee-pee and three giant dessert tables, and of course, a little bit of chilled white wine. The party couldn’t have been complete without the musical styling of Jim Cuddy. So in conclusion, if I go anywhere next year during Stampede, it’s going to be right back to the Field Law Party. Well played.
After the Stampede craziness was finally said and done, and I certainly can’t deny that I wasn’t a little bit stoked to resume life as per usual, I was once again able to hit the streets and photograph those that were sans the cowboy hat. Whoooohaaaayyy to that! Stay tuned for my September photos as we get ready to celebrate Back-to-Style month…and in the meantime, if you’re looking for something cool to do on August 18th, come and join me as I host Runway Monthly at The Bank.
