This is a very special guest post by Alexandra Hall, a fashion student at the Visual College of Art and Design in Vancouver. As an assignment for their Fashion Writing course, taught by the amazing Rebecca Tay, Western Editor of FASHION, students were asked to pitch posts to Vancouver bloggers of their choice. Alexandra and I share a love for Obakki so naturally the post was approved instantly (a girl after my own heart). Enjoy!

‘Tis the season to be…jolly? I was looking through my calendar just recently (actually, I was counting down the days until my school term is over) and noticed that Christmas is just over a month away! I don’t know about you, but I dread the thought of last-minute Christmas shopping: jam packed stores, people pushing and shoving – the thought of it all makes me cringe. One thing I do like thinking about, however, is my Christmas wish list, which I have started to pleasantly dream about.

At the top of the list is Obakki’s “Libertine” dress. Made of 95% silk and 5% elastane and available in black or silver, it’s a very simple yet eye-catching dress that’s ready to hit the party scene with you no matter what you do over the holidays. Not only would this dress make a perfect Christmas present, it’s a make a great New Year’s Eve ensemble. Pair it up with those Nicholas Kirkwood spray paint suede pumps and I think, you could rule the world! Well…you’d come pretty darn close.

With present options like the Libertine dress, it really is a season to be jolly.

$355 CAD at Obakki.

Thank you Alexandra! And also a big “thank you” to all the Fashion Writing students. It was a pleasure speaking to you about fashion writing for online media. Good luck with your studies!
