Hunter Boots and the Forrest

I am very fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Yet I have explored so little of it. This year, I owe to take advantage of what Vancouver has to offer.

Since the weather have been so mild lately as well, a walk in the woods is the best way to de-stress.

Getting intimate with nature in something stylish is a wonderful thing.

A good pair of Hunter Boots is the perfect hiking partner, especially in a damp city like Vancouver.

A good over sized coat is even better. I love this pairing of batwing coat and knitted collar from Obakki.

Fashion Benevolence :: Obakki Foundation

As a fresh start to this year, I want to draw attention to the amazing things local companies around me do.

I learned of Obakki a few years ago. Their chic minimalistic design drew my attention. From time to time I would stop by the store and admire their unique set up and beautiful merchandize.

Eventually, the physical store was closed, all merchandise are sold online and by other high end stores, so they can focus their efforts on the Obakki Foundation. Since then, they have been drilling and monitoring wells in South Sudan.

Providing the most basic human need is where everything starts.

The foundation also built 2 schools in Cameroon.

Find out more about their meaningful campaigns and projects.

We can help by directly donating to the cause.

Or, my favourite way, by shopping.

The collection of foundation merchandise is very affordable and 100% of the proceeds goes directly to fund their efforts.

I will be helping by making these three items mine.

I love doing charity shopping.

Don't forget their regular collection too, which is 30% off as well.

Hope you will be joining on this meaningful fun as well. Don't forget to tag #Create4Change every time you share your fabulous self and the OF signature scarves.

The Perfect Winter Coat :: Obakki

Baby it's cold outside.

Oh I have been listening to Christmas tunes for 6 hrs a day at work. With all the renditions of different songs out there, I am so surprised at the self imposed limitations the DJs chose to play within.

Perhaps I am not in the holiday spirit yet.

So let's focus on some winter fashion instead.

Every wardrobe needs a great coat. Mine is graced by this cashmere full length from Obakki.

I was lucky enough to snatch this up at the warehouse sale.

I also love wearing bright lip colors in the winter time. I also love pairing reds with gold.

Stay tuned for a holiday looks makeup post coming your way soon.

Deep down, I am such a fair weather person. I contemplated many times on moving myself down south. If I lived in California, I can maximize my full wardrobe potential.

But I don't mind it too much if I can wear a coat as fabulous as this.

Almost every single piece of clothing is second hand in this post. Next year, I hope to focus more on the eco side of fashion and style. I will try to challenge myself on reinventing existing piece of clothing.
