It’s Coming….

I woke up this morning thinking.. “Oh no, it’s here.. Monday found me!”  All I wanted to do was pull the blankets over my head and tell responsibility I wasn’t ready for it today.  But alas, my coffee craving overpowered the desire to sleep so off I went to face the day with my new caffeine fueled enthusiasm.

Walking into work after a weekend, nothing can really prepare you for what you will face that day.  I felt it as soon as I stepped in the door.  That feeling that can only be described as butterflies that had too much Redbull.  It crept from my stomach and warmed in my throat.  I couldn’t catch my breath, I couldn’t form proper sentences, but there it was… A full blown Brand Crush!  It seems over the weekend we got in a TON of new stock and what I was seeing was nothing short of love.  The colours, the textures and oh my.. the cuts!  I had to touch them, try them on, see every single item that we got in because they were too beautiful not to!

It seems that MinkPink has buried a hole in my heart and built a home in there.  As I draped myself in these fabulous flowing fabrics it dawned on me…… FESTIVAL SEASON IS UPON US!  In just a couple of short weeks the season will begin and I don’t know about you, but I want to be prepared.

With my Monday now being filled with childlike excitement of a new found love, I knew I had to share it with everyone and spread it around.  Here at Frakas, we have come up with a list of some of the “must haves” you will need for this Music Festival Season, using some of our new beloved MinkPink gear, to make this season your best one yet!  Take a look, fall in love, and make your Monday the best one yet!

Frakas Time Machine

March 17th, 2015

We are heading back to the Seventies!

You heard it right, the Seventies.  If we can take anything away from the most previous Fashion Week it’s that influences from hippie chic, patchworks of vintage prints, mixes of patterns, and subtle (and not so subtle) nods to the era are what are making a rapid comeback.  Here at Frakas we have been channelling our inner bohemian goddess’s and letting the eclectic mix of colours,patterns and textures take us away.  Dust off the old platforms and set your Instagram filter to “1977” because this one is going to carry you all the way through to the end of Summer!

It started out slowly in the end of 2014 and it is coming with full force in 2015: the Statement Necklace.  With the most recent Oscars behind us we saw some of our favourite celebrities adorn their necks and décolletage in big, bold and classy pieces.  This amazing piece of jewellery can be dressed up or down and becoming one of the most versatile pieces that every woman needs in their wardrobe.

Pride Week in Saskatoon!

Celebrating Pride Week here in Saskatoon, we showed our support with a sassy message on our sandwich board downtown!


Chic at Coachella

April 23rd, 2014


The fashion rules at Coachella music festival are as follows: ANYTHING GOES!


What began as a chill, down to earth opportunity for ordinary people and celebrities to share a common ground and kick back, relax and enjoy a wide variety of musical entertainment, has slowly morphed into one of the biggest fashion events of the year. Designers fight to dress celebs for the festival (which falls over two weekends in April in Indio, California) and the trendy ladies attending are planning their Coachella wardrobes well in advance. It’s no longer about comfort and relaxation as it is about looking your absolute best, while still trying to pull off a hippie, flower child, one-with-the-earth vibe.



Over the years, certain trends have emerged as staples at the California festival. Anyone looking to fit in at the event will embrace one of the following Coachella clichés: tie dye, fringe (on anything and everything), a flower crown, crop top, cut off denim shorts and distressed band tees. Different forms of head gear were also prominent, including the obvious flower crown, to feathers, jeweled headbands, big floppy hats, fedoras, and even Native-American inspired headdresses. Photos taken at the event show increasingly experimental looks year by year, some of the more daring attendees opting for a full-on costume. One performer even donned a sheer mesh bodysuit with only pasties underneath. (Hey, I said anything goes…) A particularly popular statement emerging, seen all over Coachella, is the bindi (a jewel or series of jewels placed in the middle of the forehead), along with more elaborate facial gems. Those looking to stick with the simple boho-chic vibe might rock a flowing, printed maxi dress, a tie dye maxi skirt or palazzo pants with a fringed crop top. It’s all about self-expression, and any fearless fashionista will take these common looks and try to make it her own.





Daisy Crazy!

April 15th, 2014

Spring has sprung! (Well, more so in Kelowna than in Saskatoon, but we haven’t lost hope yet!)

With a new season comes new trends, and at Frakas it’s all coming up daisies! Our buyers first noticed this common theme when on a spring buying trip in Las Vegas… it seemed this classic bloom was the flower of choice among the fashionistas. From daisy headbands to printed dresses, there is no escaping (not that we want to)! We are seeing daisies on jewelry, incorporated into lace patterns and printed on shorts, crop tops and sweaters. For the more timid lady, a simple and understated pair of daisy earrings would be just the right accessory to add to her spring wardrobe. Feeling brazen and not afraid to make a statement with your ensemble? Rock that lacy daisy crop with your daisy print maxi skirt and top it off with a flower crown to tell the world “hey! I’m ready to go frolicking through a meadow and I don’t care who knows it!” This is officially the season to embrace your inner flower child and we at Frakas are feeling the peace & love.
