Captured by photographers Ania Bonieka and Tyler Stalman, event attendees did not fail to impress us when it came to dressing for the festive occasion. Read more »

While the streets outside fashion week are always littered with head-to-toe statements, reality is such that fashion is much more functional day to day. Work in construction? Your wardrobe is likely going to consist of toughed up basics. Nine to five office dweller? A brightly hued tie might just be the only form of expression you’ve got. That being said, function can often be amped up, especially in the warmer months.
Globetrotting photographers Ania Boniecka and Tyler Stalman returned to their hometown to snap some everyday street style in and around Calgary—a winning smile seems trending across the board.

If the high cost of going to the spa is keeping you from enjoying frequent afternoons of relaxation, have we got news for you. WaySpa, the online spa marketplace, is back with another edition of Spa Week, running April 21-27, 2014. Think of Spa Week as Summerlicious for your mind, body and soul: luxury spas offer premium treatments for just $50—but for one week only.
That’s right: you can book a facial, massage, manicure, pedicure and more at some of Canada’s top spas for only a fraction of what they usually cost. Even better, this year Spa Week has expanded to more Canadian cities, with Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa joining the roster that already includes Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal. That’s a whole lotta spa treatments! So what are you waiting for? The complete Spa Week by WaySpa list is available here and we suggest booking ASAP—especially if you have your eye on more than one.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: man, Calgary’s stylish. Resident street style photographers Ania Boniecka and Tyler Stalman took to the ever-trendy 17th Avenue to document some of this summer’s hippest, and as per usual, came out with street style gold. Photographed over a few weekends in July, trendy Calgarians were spotted sporting summer layers apropos for Summer 2013’s cold-weather influx. Leather jackets and thin-knit sweaters seemed the favourite cover-ups for the ladies, while the gents favoured long sleeved button downs. As they are with much of the country’s most fashion-forward men, unkempt beards and moustaches reigned supreme. We ain’t complaining.

Is Calgary Canada’s most stylish city? After looking at not one but two stellar street style galleries from Alberta’s largest locale, we might venture to say yes! Post flash flooding and a full week of cowboy festivities, we are mega impressed by the steez brought by this year’s Calgary Stampede attendees as captured by photographers Ania Bonieka and Tyler Stalman.
As we reported with last week’s Calgary Stampede street style batch, denim was a popular basic for many of those in attendance. Breathing new life into good ole Canadian Tuxedo, a batch of studs traveling on the Hudson’s Bay roadtrip rocked the denim-on-denim look alongside this stunning chick, who even matched bright blue nails into her look. New takes on traditional accessories proved quite popular as well, with bolo ties, cowboy hats and boots all making appearances alongside the weekend’s other most popular accessory: the bicycle.

It’s certainly been quite the month for Calgary but this weekend the city proved that not only must the show go on, it’s going to bring it, style-wise. The Calgary Stampede has once again blown our minds for its ability to gather as many cool looking kids as possible in one place. Thanks to the keen eye of photographers Ania Boniecka and Tyler Stalman, you can see that “the greatest outdoor show on Earth” makes for excellent street style scouting. We’re talking distressed denim with covetable patchwork pieces, dusty leather paired with delicate lace, turquoise and silver jewellery and all the cowboy hats and boots you could ever want. Beauty-wise, Alberta seems to have mastered the art of loose, wavy hair and dewy summer skin. Remind us to book a flight to Calgary for next year, yeah? Read more »
With the one-month countdown the Calgary Stampede starting this week, it’s time to start thinking of what to wear to the event now affectionately known by those who know as “the greatest outdoor show on earth.” We’re thinking denim, plaid and, of course, the symbolic white hat. But nothing says Canadian western heritage like a pair of good old leather boots.
In celebration of the 2013 Calgary Stampede, the annual summer event has launched its own private line of cowboy (and cowgirl!) boots. As a way to represent the strong western pride through merchandise, these authentic leather boots are made by Canada West Boots, a Calgary Stampede partner, with each pair being one hundred per cent Canadian made. Each pair features unique detailing, from intricate stitching to handpicked leather finishes.
Unable to make it to this year’s festivities? Have no fear. Head over to the official Calgary Stampede online store where they’ve got all styles up for grabs.
