Fashion Week 2016
Fashion week is here and once again the ladies of Fab Four Fashion are getting ready to strut their stuff at David Pecaut Square. Picture it, 4 different beautiful women with 4 different unique styles, one can only imagine that fashion week 2016 would not be the same without Fab Four Fashion. With that being said, we cordially invite you to feast your eyes on this elegant post that the Fab Four have cooked up for you!
What I love most about fashion week, other than attending the runway shows of course, is dressing up to express my creative vision. This year I went for sophisticated chic meets bold vibrant print. I wore this 50’s inspired green dress with a black elephant print. I scored this little number on sale on the eShakti website. The dress was half price plus they had an additional 40% off on top of that! As you already know from our previous post featuring eShakti, they specialize in customized pieces catering to every size and shape.
To add an extra layer of volume and edginess to my lovely dress I wore a black tutu underneath (stay tuned because I’ll be premiering this glorious black tutu in an upcoming post). The goal was to have the tutu peeking out beyond the hem to show off a bit of the black crinoline and make it seem like its part of the dress.
My outfit would not have been complete without a ¾ sleeve feather jacket to add a pinch of pizzazz and flare to my look. To spice things up I wore my gold and black Ivanka trump pumps and a tiny gold belt to add more definition to my waist. Since my look is 50’s inspired, I added a sexy pair of long leather gloves ending at the elbow to further play on the retro theme.
And finally, the piece that will make every head turn is this to die for clutch. Let me tell you about this breathtakingly beautiful piece of art which I discovered on Instagram. It’s designed by Ka$hmir this lovely girl who decided to turn her creative juices to clutches, and several other pieces. I was so impressed with her work, I just had to order one of her clutches to show my support. All I can say is that I was impressed from the time I placed my ordered to the time I actually received my clutch. I will definitely be ordering more of her beautiful creations and besides, I am all about women supporting women.
Let me go grab my clutch and voila, I’m ready to rip the runway in style!

Fashion week is always action packed but oh so much fun! I can’t wait to see the fashionable offerings of the other fashion lovers along with what our Canadian designers are cooking up for next fall/winter.
Although Miranda Priestley might not approve, I decided to rock a floral shirt and pants combo. I loved the print and most importantly, it’s super comfortable! Almost like pyjamas (which would keep me on trend as seen on the Thakoon and Givenchy Spring 2016 runway! HA! lol).
I also wanted to play on the colors and prints, so I paired my look with some of my sweetest sweet babies – ie my shoes from J. Crew. These fit like a glove and are so darn cute! I completed my look with some gold baubles.
Stay tuned for our action packed week on all our social media platforms!
My plus size babes can also get dipped in flowers and recreate my look with this floral jumpsuit!
Nothing is better than a good piece of leather, and these oh so sexy leather overalls I scooped up at H&M make my heart do an extra little pitter-pat! Fitted, funky and fresh is how I would describe this look and I will agree with my big sis (i.e. Gail’s) description of it having a ”Mad Max” vibe and I can dig it!
Needless to say, the key piece in my look were these overalls. I paired them with an off-the-shoulder cashmere, loose fit sweater to give the look an effortlessness and my leopard print pumps to add a touch of print to this simple colour palette.
So, with a quick spritz of my favourite perfume, and my fashion week pass in hand, I’m off to the shows to see what’s going to be hot for Fall/Winter 2016!
Ah another fashion week is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited to see what our talented Canadian designers have in store for us for Fall 2016. Of course part of the fun and spectacle of fashion week is seeing the amazing streetstyle that will be on full display this week. So, not to be out done here is my fashion week look.
I went for SPARKLE baby! The star of this outfit are these sequin covered shorts. When I spotted them in Forever 21 I just knew I had to have them! These shorts are super comfortable and have just the right amount of stretch.
Given that these shorts are “lead” in this outfit I kept the rest of my outfit rather quiet. I donned a white cropped jacket and simple black tank top. I brought the sparkle upwards with this long tassel necklace and some bling around my wrist.
Last but not least is the handbag/clutch from Alexander Wang. As the other ladies of Fab Four Fashion know, I’m a handbag FANATIC! What I love about this bag is the metal studs on the bottom giving that dash of edginess to my look.
With that, my fashion week look is complete!
Sequin shorts: Forever 21 + (sold out) similar here and come is regular sizes too! // White Cropped Jacket: City Chic (old) similar here // Tank top: Forever 21+ // Tights: Addition Elle // Handbag: Alexander Wang (sold out) similar here or here // Booties: Nine West (old) similar here // Necklace: Stella & Dot (old) similar here //
