Outstanding Fashion in the Old Port of Montreal

by Alexandra, Miss Teen Monteregie 2017

On a Saturday evening in summer, fashion abounds in the Old Port of Montreal. It had been a long time since I had gone there. It is a place that represents my childhood , I always went to the science center growing up, fascinated by all the scientific phenomena that I could not explain at the time. It made me really nostalgic, for I had forgotten about it.  So I decided to choose La Place de la Promenade for the article. It’s amazing to think that this place has been around for more than 350 years. This port has played a key role in the economic activity of the metropolis. More than 12.5 million tons of merchandise used to transit through Montreal. In 1963, it was declared as a historic district. Since 2005, the old port has been redesigned to become a touristic attraction. It welcomes six million visitors annually.

Lucky for me, Gloria happened to be one of the visitors it welcomed that day. Her incredible fashion sense made her stand out from the crowd. I’m usually not a fan of pink, but I found that her purse truly brought a unique touch to the outfit. It perfectly complemented her camel shaded Wilfred Boissier shorts made of authentic vegan suede from Aritzia as well as her 100% viscose Italian black Rio top from Brandy Melville. Her accessories were like the cherry on the cake, they added an elegant touch to the ootd. The Aviator sunglasses come from Rayban. They bear their name because they were originally designed for the pilots of the US air force since 1937. They remain trendy despite their age. As for her 100% cotton bandana print scarf it comes from Forever21. To top it all off, her cute fluffy Steve Madden faux fur slippers really put the finishing touch to the outfit.

Gloria’s exquisite sense of style isn’t the only thing that defines her. Born and raised in Canada but originally from El Salvador, she pursued a career as a makeup artist based in Mississauga Ontario. She’s currently an education trainer for new stores in the Greater Toronto Area. I’m glad I had the chance to meet her!


My evening didn’t end there, later that night I met another makeup artist: Clément.  He is a new youtuber who uses his channel to inspire and share his passion: makeup. He discovered his passion by stealing his sister’s makeup and draws his inspiration from several celebrities of the beauty industry such as Jeffree Star, Coco Channel, Katy Perry. He admires these artist because they all value self-confidence and acceptance. I stalked his channel and his style immediately captivated me! He distinguishes himself by his unique colorful style that pops. I suggest you go take a quick look at Clementime his Instagram and Youtube channel! Don’t worry, all the products he uses are cruelty-free, a very important moral for him. On a more serious note, he is currently studying at the Gérald-Godin college in Social Science and he wants to go into the field of politics as a deputy.

Clément’s outfit

My favourite part of the outfit was obviously his makeup. Honestly, it was surprising to see a guy wearing makeup, but I absolutely loved it! I believe in equality and I admire his confidence.  His shark print cotton slim fit shirt from Le Château was matching his black umbrella as well as his Ralph Lauren shoes. All of this, was  completed with a pink cotton pair of shorts from American Eagle. Let’s not forget his cruelty-free backpack from Matt&Nat.

If I were to describe Vancouver’s style in one word, I would say EXOTIC. Everyone has their own style here, which makes them unique in their own way. These personalities and identities end up becoming exotic because of the diversity shown, even in the clothing. When I go out to the streets of New Westminster, I see people who are genuinely happy in their style and don’t care about other’s opinions. I believe that everyone should be entitled to dress however they like and make the most of it. Once again, the Vancouver crowd didn’t fail to surprise me with their unique styles. Let’s take a look at these unique styles found on the street of Quayside Dr, New Westminster.

This fresh out of high school student, Darien, explains his style: “‘As a dancer, I pride myself with my ability to dress appropriately for any given circumstance and being able to do so, has given me a certain style, a casual yet fancy style. As I go throughout my days I often like to dress-to-impress, since it’s a small world and you never know who you’re going to meet or see again’”. Now let’s dabble a little as to where this future P.E/History teacher buys his clothes from.

Casual Fashion in Kensington Village, Calgary

By Emily, Miss Teen North Calgary 2017

Fashion is one of the most personal forms of expression. Since my style has always been different, I’ve never really fallen into a specific category with my wardrobe. Through first and last days of school, bowties and ‘DIY’ jewelry, I’ve learned that getting creative with your attire can make a lasting impression wherever you go.

Traveling anywhere in the world will give you the opportunity to explore new looks and ideas in regards to what fashion is. It could be defined by what the hottest celebrities are wearing, or simply by what makes you feel your absolute best. You can find Inspiration for your wardrobe anywhere; the mall, Instagram, and even your friends and family. I have personally always admired the styles of Julia and Sarah, two talented and successful girls who are taking the world by storm.

While working full time as a restaurant chef, Julia doesn’t have many opportunities to get creative with her style. Therefore when she isn’t in uniform, she fully embraces her chance to make a statement with her fashion. On the other hand, Sarah works full time as a Nanny, which creates more opportunities to get creative with her wardrobe. Nevertheless, when the two girls aren’t working, they take to the streets of Kensington Village, just north of Downtown Calgary to relax, grab a coffee, and express their own personal styles.

white tube top and ripped denim blue jeansOne of Julia’s favourite go-to looks is a $45 simple white tube top from Aritzia and a pair of $67 stylishly ripped light wash American Eagle jeans. She’s paired this look with ($25) 3” chunky heeled sandals from Walmart and a $35 matching black cross shoulder bag from Garage. This edgy and inexpensive look never fails to get Julia feeling ready to take on whatever the day will pink shirt jeans in Calgary

Sarah’s first outfit consists of a $30 fitted bright pink shirt with a triangle-shaped keyhole neckline that she purchased from express, which she paired with classic $75 dark blue jeans from Guess, some stylish $120 light brown leather block heels from Steve Madden and a matching $50 brown purse from Spring.

Tying the dress in the front with a bow completes the look and provides a fun and flirty feeling. It was purchased from Winners for $25. Pairing this dress with $80 white converse gives this dress a relaxed and casual vibe.

The bright colours in this look give Sarah the perfect summer style. She completed the look with some beautiful blue $40 heeled sandals purchased from Lulus.

The $45 black off the shoulder shirt from Dynamite is dotted with a white and pink flowers print and has a looser fit to keep you cooler longer in the hot Calgarian sun. The sleeves on the shirt are complete with a slit running down the outer arm. Julia paired this look with $67 blue jeans from American Eagle, and some fashion forward $75 loafer style shoes from Aldo. She worked the same black bag into this new look, which proves just how versatile fashion can be.

The dress that Sarah is wearing in this final photo was only $30 that she bought from Forever 21 It is an elegant white fitted dress with a scoop neckline. She added to the summery look with an adorable pendant necklace from Hawaii. She completed the look with some navy blue tie up heels that she purchased for $40 from Lulus.

I believe that fashion is undoubtedly defined by you. Wear what makes you feel beautiful, and wear it with pride. “Style is very personal, it has nothing to do with fashion, fashion is over quickly. Style is forever.” -Ralph Lauren




Summer on Stephen Avenue Walk

by Mattea Henderson, 2017 Miss Calgary World

Summer is short in Calgary so ladies make the most of it. We have about six weeks of time to be flirtatious and bold with our everyday looks. Wear killer heels on a causal Tuesday, or festive cowboy boots because you are in the Heart of the New West. Calgary is not the Paris France of Canada, but if you can wear your heart on your sleeve and your head held high knowing you feel good in what you are wearing, I promise you your summer will be memorable and fashionable.

Fashion is a two-way street: how you feel in your choices of the day, and seeing people’s reactions to you loving what you wear when you pass each other. Stephen Avenue in Calgary, Alberta is a balance of corporate, tourist, and entertainment ventures, from main steam patios and restaurants, to buskers, and fashionable people laughing or smiling, or running to a meeting with a cup of coffee in hand. Stephen Avenue is a destination for all Calgarians to work and play!

Kayla is studying Public Relations in university, and is a student working full time this summer for an insurance claim agency. She somehow manages to not only take stylist on a university student’s budget, but does this all on the same street in Calgary! Kayla understand the importance of business to casual to edgy in the quick switch of a jacket, or a pair of shoes. She works just off Stephen Avenue, but she embraces the benefits to being right off one of the hottest places in Calgary if she needs a bite, getting dinner with girlfriends, or going to a concert!

shoulder strap dress on Stephen Ave in CalgaryDone with work and taking off her jacket left Stephen Avenue with a long-legged blonde in a black Aritzia crossed-strap halter top ($70.00), high rise black skinny jean from Urban Outfitters ($50.00), and a chunky heeled- strappy sandal.  Being able to go from corporate to contemporary to edgy can be done easily on a university student budget.

By focusing on acquiring pieces that are basics in her wardrobe, Kayla repurposed her back thick heeled sandals from Payless ($15.00), with a body-con dress in stone grey purchased from Aritzia ($60.00), with a classic worn-in black leather jacket from no other than Forever 21 ($20.00). Kayla was successful in embrace her edginess from corporate business woman by swapping out a piece or two in her wardrobe.

If you are looking for the new heart of the west, Stephen Avenue is the place to be during the second week of July. You will see anything from authentic cowboys and cowgirls, families dressed to the nines, but Kayla does it right. A baby blue denim off the shoulder summer dress from Urban Outfitters ($60.00) with nothing less than matching cowboy boots thanks to Lammles, and a leather cross body purse from Michael Kors ($130.00) pairs perfectly for a cute Calgary Stampede look!

Calgary fashion on Stephen aveThis look is authentic to Stampede or embracing Calgary’s western roots, but realistically cowboy boots can be extremely expensive, this $300.00 investment is a staple for Kayla and all Calgarians.

One Girl. One Street. Multipurpose pieces on a university student budget. Kayla is one to watch out for on Stephen Avenue whether she is working on settling an insurance claim, studying for exams at a coffee shop, or out for a night out with friends.
