A Fabulous Giveaway







Win a $400 gift card to shop at Obakki* online or in store.

Spring has arrived, and as we enjoy longer, lovelier days, we look forward to those wonderfully memorable, care-free moments and adventure—of days so long, and languorous evenings that seem to stretch on and on, blissfully, and without a trace of care. We are reminded of the beautiful scents, flavours, and sights to enjoy, that only this warmer time of year may bring; of slices of juicy, fresh fruit, walks in the city, sun-filled beach days, and sandy toes. And, of course, it is completely inevitable that all we wish to do is be a part of it all...

Which brings me to one of my most favorite brands, Obakki. Obakki is a luxury fashion brand based in Vancouver (and recognized internationally) that focuses on urban, easy-to-wear and effortlessly cool clothing—perfect for moments such as these. For their Spring/Summer collection, as you see, the mood is just that—completely carefree, spontaneous, easy, and wonderfully feminine, with a slightly raw twist. Brought together for the collection is a gorgeous palette of neutrals and soft tea rose, mixed with stronger tones of black, blues and military greens, in incredibly luxurious fabrics. Below is a look at some of the many beautiful pieces of the season:


















The inspiration for this collection was drawn from the adventurous spirit of a road trip, offering styles that have been designed with "images of sun-kissed days on a beach and cool nights filled with campfires, outdoor parties and music festivals in mind." Perfect for the lady on the go, heading to a business meeting and is in need of a tailored dress, or on her way out for a tea date with a best friend on a Saturday afternoon, or for whirlwind trips, with plane tickets booked at the very last minute, where all you truly want to wear is that fabulous flowing dress and your favorite sandals...

One lucky reader will win a $400 gift card to Obakki
(may be used in store or at their online shop)

To Enter, please:
01 Sign up to Obakki's mailing list (Obakki will email the winner)
02 Leave a comment below, selecting which look you would love to wear most

✕ Contest ends on March 29th / the lucky winner will be chosen at random / open worldwide
Good Luck!

    How elegantly the clothes drape, with such elegant cuts and such luxurious fabrics. They look as if they twirl all by themselves! I bet that they make the wearer feel sensuous and beautiful.

    The Benoit jacket looks like the brilliant type of item that can be grabbed quickly to instantly make an outfit look super professional. As a designer, I can imagine wearing that to an important client presentation and feeling quite the part!

    But I also keep going back to look at the beautiful Ambrose dress. That one leaves me speechless!

    ReplyDelete
