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.

Small Town Fashion in Alberta

by Nicole, 2017 Miss Woodlands County World

Small towns hold all sorts of secrets, and good fashion is one of them.  Fashion tends to be linked to the bright lights and busy life of the big cities, however if you take the time to drive to a small town or are lucky enough to live in one, you’ll find fashion thrives in these tiny locales, and individuality is very vogue. If you can own your own style, you’ll stand out and inspire others around you every day.

Meet Shanelle, a beauty aesthetician who has always been inspired by the fashion industry; she feels like its been prompting her to join. She takes great pride in letting her individuality shine through her fashion choices. Whether she’s working her magic on clients or strolling through our small town streets Shanelle always likes to look her best and showcase her unique fashion. Being in the beauty industry she likes to change up her fashion choices consistently.

Shanelle loves floral patterns and is always looking for ways to mix and match. In the summer heat this floral “boohoo” dress is perfect for summer fun and night time cocktails. It’s really the best of both worlds day or night. Paired with red flats from “Aldo”, the bold colour brings out the floral and Shanelle is ready for anything looking pretty and polished. Her inspiration comes from all around her, “Everything blooms in the summer, so I like to pull from that in my wardrobe”.

Shopping in a small town tends to leave you limited but if you can mix and match you’ll find yourself with endless possibilities. Here Shanelle switched it up a bit to show summer does not have to be all about dresses! Bring out your own style anyway you can. Confidence is key, it’s not the clothes that make the girl but the girl that makes the clothes.

Shanelle rocks this “boohoo” body suit. “Boohoo” is a great brand she loves due to the great prices.  Who says you can’t look good on a budget? Paired with Vigoss skinny jeans and of course Aldo sneaker wedge shoes once again she’s ready to take on anything. Add some bling and she’s ready for a night out.

Shanelle was such an easy subject to show off Street Chic she shows how great of adversity a small town has to offer for fashion. The final look she wanted to showcase is very boho chic. Shanelle loves to sport everywhere from floating down the river to lunches with friends and family.

Showing off her artsy side, Shanelle poses outside a local art store. Her dress from “Express” compliments her loose curls and sun kissed face. Paired with J.J’s shoes from a little clothing store located in our small town “workers wear house”.  Shanelle is the definition of small town fashion. Her own uniqueness shines through and is showcased beautifully in her wardrobe. I was extremely happy and lucky to get to work with Shanelle and to introduce her to Street Chic.

Fashion is everywhere you look as well as inspiration, and while big cities hold the claim to fame for fashion it really is inside each individual. Rocking your own unique style will always be in so don’t be afraid to be yourself. Shanelle showcased a spectrum of fashion and shined in every piece she wore from head to toe. This is a girl who knows how to shop on a budget and still look great.
