dsw comes to calgary

Last Wednesday I attended the grand opening of DSW at its first Calgary location. There were snacks to fill the belly, shoes to fill the feet, and red & white balloons alongside similar hues of wine. I brought my mum as guest and giggle queen, we smiled together as we tried on boots and summer shoes, we wandered by heel and shoelace until we came upon a pair of brown Frye boots.

 I've never owned a pair of Frye's. I've only admired them the way children do when looking into shop windows. They've always seemed so perfectly shaped while keeping a rugged aesthetic which suits me whether I'm in the city or countryside. They've also been terribly close to the same price as my first banjo, so I never dreamed I would wear them anywhere but the store in which they sit. 

When Wednesday night came along, I felt as if I were dreaming. I was with my favorite person in the world, trying on Frye boots that were actually within my budget, and smiling with wine stained lips. I happily returned home with the brown pair I'm wearing in these photographs and my mum found her own shoes for the summertime. I'll always keep DSW in mind for when I want a pair of fancy boots with a much more affordable price tag. Happy to welcome you to Canada, DSW.
