Friends Are Always in Fashion in Red Deer Alberta

By Scotia, Miss Teen Central Alberta 2017

What is fashion really about? Lots of people have ideas, or guesses but does anyone really know the true meaning of fashion? My guess is Fashion is about making yourself feel like the best you. Making you feel confident and proud of what you wear. With my street chic, I chose three friends to model of what makes them confident with their bodies. To fit my theme of “What is Fashion to You?”, I asked all of my models what fashion means to them.

First is Brooklyne

Brooklyne is a very lovely lady with a kind heart and soul. Brooklyne spends most of her free time out with her boyfriend or plays volleyball with her friends. Brooklyne decided to  wear an off-the-shoulder black blouse from Stitches paired with blue knee-slit skinny jeans from Garage. To finish off her look Brooklyne chose black wedged heels from H&M, also including a neon pink Coach purse to match her lipstick.

Brooklyne expressed how fashion is “A way to express yourself without having to say anything.”

Next is Lexi

Lexi is an adventurous spirit who is humble and soft. You can catch Lexi most when she is out-and-about with her friends. Lexi is wearing a comfy yellow shirt from American Eagle with knee-slit blue skinny jeans from Stitches and white Converse shoes.

Last but not least is Emilee.

Emilee is a smart girl with a sassy attitude. If you were looking for Emilee, you would most likely find her dancing her feet off. Emilee had on a salmon crop top from Stitches, Black slit jeans from Garage and Allstar shoes from Adidas. Emilee described fashion as, “clothes and accessories that make you confident, comfortable, and follow the trends. It should speak who you are and about your mind.”

As well as being the models for my fashion photos, Brooklyne, Lexi and Emilee and I had so much fun messing around Downtown Red Deer Alberta.

Fashion in Abbottsford British Columbia

Fashion on Montrose Ave. in Abbotsford, British Columbia

by Georgia, Miss Teen Fraser Valley 2017

Living in the Fraser Valley you get to see a lot of different fashion styles, especially in the summer. This year’s summer has been quite hot with some days being close to 40 degrees Celsius. Thus staying cool is a big priority when picking out an outfit. I personally take fashion inspiration from all over the world and through many eras, though I have to say that the 60s are favourite. What I love about the street I chose, is that as you walk down it you will see so many different and unique styles that all look good. Montrose avenue in Abbotsford, BC is located at the heart of its historic downtown. Both sides of the street are full of bakeries, vintage shops, boutiques, music shops and so much more.

Veronica is a University student with a great sense of style. She is currently studying science at SFU but has decided to change her studies to become a fashion designer. Come next year Veronica is traveling to Asia and hopes that while she is there she will find lots of inspiration to help her in the future. Veronica is wearing an upcycled white vintage top, a mauve high waisted pleated skirt that she custom made and white Adidas runners for $75. She has paired this outfit with a super cute light pink purse from Michael Kors for $198. Veronica is pictured outside Invana TeaHouse on Montrose ave. in Abbotsford. I chose this location because of the vintage and rustic feel the business gives off.  This outfit is super cute and casual, which is perfect for the hot weather in the Fraser Valley. In this ensemble you can go for brunch or a walk in the park;  her skirt and shirt combo really has no limits.

Fashion styles in Frasier Valley British ColumbiaCamillie is a university student and loves to express herself through her fashion. Camillie and her two sisters run a fashion instagram (@fashionandfetch ) where they show off their different styles to the world. They hope to inspire others to do the same. Her influence comes from all over the world and she is always looking for the perfect items to add to her closet! The orange shorts and white shoes that Camillie is wearing come from different shops along the beach in Chile This helps to make her style even more unique. The red bodysuit is from Urban Behavior and the black belt is thrifted. I chose to go with an off-white wall in one of the alleys along the street because I really wanted the bright colours of this summer outfit to pop! I love how Camillie has pulled the red together by adding the sunglasses and having the small red detailing on the shoes. Doing this really helps to make a complete look that’s ready for the beach or a local festival.

This more dressy look is perfect for a summer date or afternoon tea in the garden. The flowers in the background add a fresh feel to the street and really help to the the dress stand out. Camillie loves to have statement pieces which is why this Red Madison Tote from Shop J&G for $56 is perfect for her. The dress she is wearing from Zara. She may love a statement piece but she knows when enough is enough, which is why she has paired this outfit with a set of nude platform heels. The heels and purse together give Camillie the perfect amount of statement.

Fraser Valley’s fashion is truly complex, and I haven’t even started to show you half of it. If you want to get the full feel come down to Montrose avenue in Abbotsford, grab a cup of coffee and a pastry from one of our local shops, and see for yourself just how diverse our summer fashion is!

Cambridge center mall on Hespelar Rd

Fashion at Cambridge Center Mall on Hespeler Rd

By Kaitlyn, Miss Teenage Waterloo Region 2017

On the Thursday before the August civic holiday weekend in Cambridge, Ontario, when all of our local-fashionistas are out preparing for upcoming endeavours, I took an opportunity to visit the Cambridge Center Mall on Hespeler road and get some inspiration. Along the way I happened to run into a beautiful girl named Chloe.

vneck tshirt from ReitmansChloe is 21 years old and loves to travel, in fact she moved to Canada 3 years ago from Wales.  She described herself as creative and shared with me her passion for drawing. So… what is she wearing!? Being a full time Pandora employee, her uniform requires her to wear black on black on black. Chloe is wearing a high fashion black twisted V-neck T-shirt from Urban Planet made from polyester and nylon which she purchased for $15. For pants she chose trendy black leggings from Reitmans made out of viscose and nylon for $45. Black Adidas flats, and 2 gorgeous Pandora bracelets and 3 rings all made from sterling silver, cubic zirconia, and pearl accents.

Next up in the Cambridge Center on Hespeler Road I stumbled upon a true beauty, Brianna. Brianna is the youngest out of 9 biological siblings, and also has 4 foster siblings! She just switched school’s at the age of 17, and currently works 4 jobs! Brianna is an equestrian, she loves to ride horses at Irish Creek Stables, and loves art and fitness. She was wearing a blue dress from Winners made out of cotton for $14, a cover up black jacket made from nylon and polyester also from Winners for $25. To tie the outfit together she wore a thick black belt made out of leather and elastic from Ardenes for $10. And on her feet, heels from Aldo for $80. I noticed this gorgeous ring on her finger as well, and it came out of a candle! Charmed aroma candles and bath bombs are gifts she receives often, and they definitely pay off. (And might I add, her makeup skills are incredible.)

Lastly, on my way home I bumped into Kimberly. Kimberly is 43 years old and in the pharmaceutical industry, she loves fitness, gardening and water sports at her cottage. When Kimberly has down time, she listens to audiobooks. In fact she just finished listening to 44 hours of Stephen King’s ‘It’ novel. Kimberly is wearing a Frank Lyman designer beaded white dress made out of lycra, nylon, and cotton which she purchased for $165. On her feet gorgeous sparkly heels from Aldo for $99 and on her wrist a FitBit Charge 2 for $169. This was taken on McFarlane Drive, in Cambridge Ontario.

My favourite part about seeking out the greatest fashions in my region was getting to meet new people. All of the girls were so lovely and helpful to me, I definitely made new friends today! This experience has taught me that you don’t have to be wearing Gucci or Kate Spade to be considered chic. If Brianna hadn’t told me her belt was from Ardenes, I would never have known. The moral of the story here is that you can be extremely fashionable and not break the bank. It’s all about knowing where to look. I hope this article changes your perspective about brands. Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the creation of this article, you’re all beautiful, and are definitely worthy of the title “Street Chic”.
