Obakki Fall/Winter Fashion Show


Last night, Jen ( Her Waise Choice) and I attended the Obakki Fall/Fashion show as the golden girls.  We coordinated our outfits so that we could both show off our newest golden vintage acquisitions. It definitely feels wonderful having a partner in crime who shares your love for decadence.

 I'm Wearing: Vintage skirt and clutch, Aldo shoes and necklace and H&M blazer.
Jen is Wearing: Vintage top, F21 dress (worn as skirt), Aldo wedges, and bag from local boutique ( Flok)

I've recently just learned to tweet ! I have Jen to thank for a new social media addiction !  You can follow me on Twitter if you are interested in my random ramblings at every hour of the day/night.

Obakki is a Vancouver based luxury fashion brand that has already graced the insides of Vogue, InStyle, WWD  and has gathered a large celebrity following including Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson and Rumy Neely of Fashion Toast.

The collection was described as 
“Inspired by abandoned ivy-colored mansions with dusty chandeliers, and delicate details that become more beautiful as they disintegrate, we felt that it seemed fitting that the collection premiere in a setting evocative of an old European church. The collection embodies memories that capture an ethereal romance, a playful darkness and a sensual fragility.  Luxurious and haunted with subtle sexual tones this will be unlike anything Vancouver has ever seen before.” -obakki 


The show brought all the Vancouver fashionistas together and I had the pleasure of meeting so many of the city's favorite bloggers. All the girls were wonderful and I can not wait to meet them all again!

That last shot makes me wish so much that I could have made it to the Obakki show last night! You all look amazing, but especially you and Jen- your golden vintage finds are just stunning. I'm so impressed by the way you rock this skirt- I would never have dreamed of picking up something like it in a vintage store, but not only did you have the skills to find it, you wore it with such style. Amazing!
xox,

Mina, this is kinda hugely embarrassing but i have to confess something. i followed you a long time ago, i'm pretty sure it was from a stroll you & Jen went on in Chinatown & i saw it on her blog. then i would have (i'm assuming b/c my mind is a mush, so brain stumbles are the norm for me i'm afraid) come over here to see you. this came back to me after i tried to follow you again, then realized i was already. feeling kinda bad right now b/c in all honesty i usually go through to bloggers that have commented on mine 1st before the traditional blogroll. i felt the need to explain and hope this makes any sense, just wanted to say i'm happy to "re-find" you and now have my mind clear to remember for all time!

okay and now major props for your Obakki feature! it's gorgeous with you girls, the fashions and the photos. i live quite close to that store and walk by it almost daily, my eyes glint while passing. it's supreme styles are seriously a swoon. seeing you two in your coordinating looks has me out of my mind! well played ladies, well played. xo ♥

The Savvy Frugalista said...

You both look gorgeous! Those are great finds. Nothing like two partners in crime dressing in gold pieces to steal the show ;) The Obakki show looks amazing. My timeline was filled with tweets about it. What a great way to spend the night. I'm surprised you JUST started to tweet! SO addicting. I swear I check my twitter every hour. Haha, hopefully you won't get as addicted as I am!
