With the Calgary Stampede right around the corner (July 5 - 14) we thought we'd put together a round-up of must-have western styles from Canadian local shops. Aside from the two-stepping, rodeo and mini-donuts, half the fun is getting dressed up in all your western gear. Yeeee-haw!
1. Lace Brick Design
Lace Brick Design is a lifestyle brand for the adventure seeking girl based in Calgary, AB. They have so many items that are perfect for the Calgary Stampede and they even have a section on their website dedicated exclusively to Calgary Stampede gear. Local pick-up is available for anyone in Calgary so you can save on those shipping fees. This tank is our personal fave!
2. SalvEdge Boutique
SalvEdge Boutique is a consignment shop with two retail locations in Calgary (Victoria Park & 17th Ave). Gearing up to the Calgary Stampede they always have lots of Stampede-specific styles in stock like dresses, jean shorts and the iconic denim jacket.
