Ottawa, the capital city of Canada (Washington, DC's Canuck equivalent) and home to Prime Minister Stephen Harper & many Francophones is known for our Parliament buildings, the Rideau Canal (aka the world's largest outdoor skating rink), the Ottawa Senators NHL team and the birthplace of Alanis Morissette. We recently built the largest Ikea in Canada and according to Wikipedia, Ottawa is one of the most educated Canadian cities! What we're not as well known for is being a fashionable city (Montreal & Toronto 'wear' that honour). But all that is changing with our increasingly popular Ottawa Fashion Week, the influx of style bloggers and unique local retailers.
St. Laurent Centre, Ottawa's largest shopping mall is currently hosting a style contest. Participants take a photo of their fab outfit and post it to Instagram or tweet it using the hashtag #OTTSTYLE or simply upload it directly to St. Laurent Centre's Facebook page. Then it's up to the public to vote for their favourite ensemble and the lucky winner will receive an iphone5!
The contest is now closed and you can vote for me over here! The winner will be announced on November 3rd.
