Calgary Stampede: Style Roundup, Part One

You know what I like more than the wild horses, and fast barrel racers, you get to see at a rodeo? Western Style. & Man, when I say those #rodeowives have their western/cowgirl style down to a T, I am not over-exaggerating. Those gals are always on point. I, in my little way, attempt to emulate them. These are some select outfits I rocked during the 2015 Calgary Stampede!

At the #Saddleup event at the Calgary Stampede
to kick off the Stampede season!

Vintage Turquoise Necklace
one of my proudest finds, real turquoise that I found in a tiny shop in Arizona that was going out of business. Acquired it for $30!
Black Sam Edelman Zip-up Top
Vintage Concho Buckle Belt
Ropers ft. a Pointed Toe & Red Rose Inlay
Does a good pointed toe ever go out of style? the answer is no my friends

Had to get Stampede Nails!

My staples of the Stampede definitely consisted of some key items, that are in full force when it comes to this outfit:
My Vintage Black Concho Belt
Blue Beaded Headband
Vintage Turquoise Necklace
Winners Lace Cover Up
Miss Me Jeans

Pro-Tip: Want to know why so many of my outfits do/will/have featured headbands? Well, it isn't that glamorous... After curling the crap out of my hair, I hairspray my hat band, smoosh my hat onto my head, then pin it so it stays in. After 4 hours of riding around (read: sweating) in it, once it comes off, my hair is a MESS. A headband is perfect because it's a cute western style that hides your hat line/holds down any awry frizziness. #andnowyouknow

Off to Watch the Mercuria World Series Cutting!

Right before Stampede I purchased this super awesome, Vintage Denim Trucker Hat, from Paige Callaway/Pursue Victory. I love supporting a local company, and the Pursue Victory line just oozes cool. I definitely felt pretty fly in this statement hat.

Again Pro-Tip: Headbands & Cute Hats to hide unruly, disgusting hair.

Stay tuned for Part 2....


  1. Aha! I was wondering about the headband. Great idea!
