Amelia Hradsky has mastered what it means to have a perfectly versatile wardrobe - everyday is a new adventure with many stops along the way! She is an inspiration to Calgary's fitness community, the teacher every student wishes they had, a loyal friend, a loving wife... we could go on. Whether on the run from school to a workout, a workout to school, happy hour with friends to dinner with her husband Vince, we admire Amelia's ability to always look striking while dressing the part. One thing about Amelia - her style is truly her own and we love her for it.
When Amelia invites you over you can count on soul filling conversations and a glass [or two] of wine. Topics include but aren't limited to: Oprah's Super Soul Conversations or any thought provoking podcast come to think of it, books like the Alchemist, her newest workout faves, Ciara's lastest Insta story, or whatever she's coveting for her carefully selected closet. Her ability to leave you feeling supported and heard, while challenged and inspired is what we love most about this babe!

To Amelia, style is an expression + extension of who she is. "To me, it’s language without words, and creates yet another element of myself to share with the world."
Coco Chanel said, “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” #whatshesaid
Style and trends are always evolving, and if you know Amelia, you know that she embraces change. When she was younger, Amelia kept her love for Brigitte Bardot at the foundation of her look - classic, feminine mixed with a bit of tomboy. Who does she draw from now you ask? Well, if you've ever been in a spin room with her you know the obsession with Beyonce is no joke.
"If I’m real with my current self, I have to say Beyonce because of her all-encompassing definition of style and art, and it’s not only about the clothes."

What can’t you leave the house without? Oh my gosh, CARMEX, my phone, and at least one piece of jewellery that makes me feel fly.
Heels or flats? Can I sit the whole time? I love heels and think shoes are the biggest and best part of any outfit. With that said, I teach Grade 5/6, teach spin, and circuit classes, so rocking heels while painting with kids, or putting them on after a sweaty work-out class isn’t exactly my idea of feel good style, you know?
Leather or lace? Oooh, can I say both? At the same time ;-). Obviously in love with abundance.
New or vintage? See above? I appreciate both so much. If I were a talented fashionista, I would say vintage, but I have an easier time envisioning an outfit with new clothes.
What look would you never be caught in? Never say never…but I do go by the notion that I should 'always believe something wonderful is about to happen,' and I like to dress that way.
What’s your favourite consignment/thrift find? I have an amazing jacket from Fond Boutique that is a perfect to and from studio jacket. I’ve had it forever and still wear it all the time.
What is your personal style statement? Tomboy with a spin of femme or femme with a spin of tomboy...depends on the day...

Pass on the best advice you’ve ever received: "You will never be able to escape from your own heart, so be brave enough to listen to what it has to say." Paul Coelho, The Alchemist
