A Night At The Symphony
Want to hear a little secret about the ladies of Fab Four Fashion? We love music of all kinds! Every meeting, every photo shoot, in the car, on the way to work, you will always find us singing or listening to some cool tunes from modern day hits to old school classics. So it’s really no surprise that we like going to see the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) and that we just had to show you all what we like to wear when attending the symphony!
A night at the symphony – I’ve never had the pleasure but certainly hope to one day. I remember watching Mr. Holland’s Opus and getting caught up in the main character, Glenn Holland’s, passion for music. When one of the ladies thought it might be nice to check out the latest offering by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra one day (TSO to us Tdot dwellers) I knew I wanted to come up with a fun yet elegant outfit.
For a beautiful summer evening at the symphony, I chose a form fitting coral colored dress and paired it with fuchsia coloured pumps for an extra dose of color.
I added gold dangly earrings and a gold clutch to complete my look!
When the ladies decided to dress up for the symphony, I had the perfect outfit in mind. I was inspired by the elegance and class of the symphony itself. I just love dressing up, so any occasion is a good occasion for me to dress up LOL.
I decided to wear a flirty summery floral printed dress. Mind you, I’m not a big fan of floral prints, however after years of searching for the right floral item, I scored a nice dress on ASOS.com last summer. I was a bit nervous because when you order online you don’t know when your item will arrive and if it’s going to look exactly how you saw it online. Moreover, I was also concerned with how it would look on me. Well let me tell you, I was very pleased. This dress is just as stunning as the first time I saw it online. I love the floral print and the pinkish color compliments my complexion beautifully.
For the TSO, I simply paired my dress with some gold accessories to bring out the gold colors on the dress and I wore a slim gold belt to accentuate my smaller waist. I wore my nice beige and gold Ivanka Trump stilettos (which I scored for the awesome price of $37, I told you my story in our previous Spring has Sprung post).
I love my jazz, hip-hop, pop, gospel and R&B, but sometimes I just need a dose of those classics from Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn and the like! It just stirs something in my soul! The Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) has the perfect prescription to sooth the soul, both with the sweet melodies and of course the chance to put together a symphony appropriate ensemble! Now, don’t get me wrong, you do not need to get all dressed up to check out a performance, but sometimes, it’s just so nice to get all dolled-up!
I chose to wear colour, colour, colour for my look. I’ve had this little yellow number in my wardrobe for a year now and never had the right opportunity to take it out for a test drive…until now.
I love this dress because the bottom portion of it is faux leather and top a polyester blend which creates a cool effect. This figure-hugging dress highlights the fact that, despite my slim silhouette, I do have some curves and in the right outfit, I too can easily have that sexy hourglass shape!
Since colour was the name of my game for this look, I chose to rock some cobalt blue high heeled strappy sandals which compliment the pale yellow colour of the dress beautifully. So ladies, not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m a shoe junky! When I saw these babies my eyes nearly bulged out of their sockets. I almost didn’t get them because I was thinking that “well…I already have blue shoes…I’m saving for my next vacation…I have too many shoes”, but I quickly began to do that thing we ladies do when we really want something…you know how we start to rationalize things like “the blue shoes I have are totally different…I haven’t purchased anything in days now so I can get this…I can always go on vacation, but these shoes will sell out”!LOL Obviously, I drank the coolade and got the shoes and I don’t regret it for a minute!LOL
To round out my look, I wore a bold necklace and simple earrings, and to guard me from the chill of those cool nights I threw on my blue leather moto jacket. So lower the house lights and open the curtain, bring out the maestro cause my soul is ready to be stirred by some symphonic sounds!
I have mentioned it before, and I’ll mention it again, I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. And while I could have stuck to my default attire for the TSO (swapping out for the tee for a more elegant top), I gladly ditched the jeans to match the rest of the ladies!
I pulled out this sweet LGD – as in little gray dress – which I have had for years! This is another timeless dress which I simply love. The simplicity of this dress makes it elegant while the belt ensures that all curves needing accentuation are accentuated LOL.
When you see me in what may look like a plain dress, check out the back, that’s often where all the fun happens. LOL I accessorized with a bold multi strand necklace.
To make this look a complete throwback, I paired it with some snake print sandals which I also bought many moons ago. Talk about an oldie but a goodie.
Now off to the symphony we go!
