So I went to the Parkshow Calgary last Saturday at the NGA Golf Dome, I want to share with you some tips for attending these kind of fashion shows.

Ditch your Little Black Dress – this is a fashion show you are going, which means you can try something outside your own comfort zone, I don’t mean by wearing crazy things, but if you always wear dark colours, why not switch to something colourful or with fun colour design details. Little White Dress (LWD) is a great choice! It will make you look very fresh and stand out of the crowd! If you really have to wear black, try play with the texture a little bit – sheer, lace or patent will do the trick.

Dressy flats vs. Crazy high heels – if you are the kind of person who always walks around before and after the show, a pair of dressy flats are so effortless and chic. I prefer the pointy ones because they look great with both pants and dress, also elongate the legs. On the other hand, high heels are perfect to complete your head-to-toe dressed up look, but they might get painful at the end of the day, so here are some tips – you can put in a clear jell pad in the sole at your ball of the foot, this will help release some pain. Or you can try pairing a cute pair of socks with the heels (this is how I did on the day), there was zero pain on my feet from rubbing the heels and very stylish too!

Get yourself prepared – there will be photographers and bloggers taking pictures, so be prepared to have your pictures taken! If you are a blogger like me, remember to bring your business cards if you want to mingle and network with people, and a seperate flash for your camera (yes I forgot both…). Well I learned my lesson and there  will always a next time!

The last but not the least… ENJOY THE SHOW!
