Fancy Dressy & Classy
The ladies of Fab Four Fashion never need an excuse to get all dolled up. Whether we are celebrating a friend’s birthday, heading out to dinner or just because, we always come dressed to impress!
When the weather warms up like this, it means one and only one thing: it’s time to get summertime fine! Lol Because I’m often quick to run to the store or online for a fly look, I challenged myself to get creative with existing pieces from my wardrobe.
Honestly, I know it’s really not that hard to pull pieces from your own wardrobe, but when your closet is in utter chaos (I can’t be alone on this one… am I? ?? Lol) it’s easy to forget some of the gorgeous pieces hidden in its depths.
Summer equals color, color, and more color. So when I rediscovered this Dedo Azu asymmetrical skirt, I knew that it would be at the center of my look.
I paired my dress with a sweetheart neckline top (which is actually a dress) that I wore here. Because I wanted the fullest full skirt ever, I added a tutu underneath. So I was basically wearing a dress with two skirts lol but it created just the right look that I was looking for and I didn’t drop a dime. YAY ME!
I finished off my look with a black cut out cuff for a dash of edge, some dangly black earrings and mustard pumps because it just goes! With that, I’m ready for summer night awesomeness!
I love wearing pretty summer dresses when the weather warms up and this one is one of my faves! I’m sure you won’t be surprised to know that it was the gorgeous colour and super cool African print that drew me to this dress. The colour is fun and vibrant, while the print has the shape and symmetry that just appeals to me!
While this is a halter dress, I opted to rock it with a leather moto style jacket to give the illusion that it is actually a skirt. Truth be told, I also did this because I did not have time to have it altered and it’s still a wee bit too big!LOL But this just goes to show what you can do when you think outside the box!
The midi length of this dress is perfect for the tall girl and the flared skirt gives me some added volume on my bottom half.
The accessorizing of this outfit was easy. I wore a studded black belt to highlight my waist, and a little sparkle at the ears in the form of dangly earrings. To turn the colour all the way up, I added these neon yellow stilettos; and with that, I was ready to enjoy a warm spring evening and night out with that special someone, or with great friends!
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but I would have to add sequins to the list too. So, without question this skirt is the star of this outfit. It hugs me in all the right places and when the light catches just right, its as though I’m shining bright like a diamond.
As I mentioned before, this skirt fits me to a “T” and features olive green, black and white sequins arranged in a camo print pattern. This non stretch skirt is unlined with an invisible zipper and has an inset elastic waistband so it goes unseen.
I paired my gem of a skirt with this black mesh long sleeved bodysuit. I layered it with another bodysuit worn underneath. To round out my look I added black peep toe pumps and gold accessories. With that my friends my outfit is complete!

Dressing up and dressing well is something that I love doing oh so much. For my dressy look I went for a subtle feminine, femme-fatale red dress. I was fortunate enough to find this gorgeous red dress that almost looks like a 2 piece set, in my favorite scuba material. Red is a color that a lot of people shy away from, however you can never go wrong with the right shade of red. I found this dress on my favorite website, ASOS, and since the dress was well priced (you know I’m always looking for a great deal) I just had to have it!
What drew me to this dress is the illusion of it being a 2 piece set. Also, I’m a sucker for a voluminous puffy skirt. Since the top of the dress is fitted and looks like a crop top, the bottom part being puffy creates an overall effect that I simply love!
Another great thing about this dress is that it is made out of a scuba material; it always does right by me. I love the stretch that this material offers, but more importantly, I appreciate that the material holds me in at all the right places. A thicker scuba material carefully smooths out my blemishes which is always a plus.
To complete my feminine femme-fatale look I paired my dress with some leopard print pumps and a sparkly necklace, and voila, I’m ready to conquer.
Tah Tah for now,
