Fine Glass of Wine
“Would you like a glass of wine?” is never a question that needs to be asked. “Red or white?” is a better one! As fashion lovers, we do enjoy partaking in some of the finer things in life, and wine is surely one of them. A glass of wine or two when we get together to discuss our next business move always makes the time fly and adds just a little more fun!
The ladies of Fab Four Fashion took a little jaunt up to Niagara-on-the-Lake to enjoy some of Ontario’s finest and of course, just had to do it in style. So, grab a glass of wine, sit back, relax and enjoy our latest post!
Being able to tour a winery and learn all that goes into the wine making process, for me, makes enjoying a glass of wine all that more satisfying. For our winery tour, the watch words for me were comfort & style.
Comfort equaled loafers. These black patent loafers were like walking on a bed of clouds and made managing the terrain on the winery that much easier to navigate.
My polka dot long shirt along with the striped skirt are both cotton and therefore breathable for those warm summer days. For a pop of colour I added this lemon yellow chain link strap purse.
Leslie and I also wanted to highlight the fact that although we have very different body types my outfit translates perfectly to her frame and vice versa. Don’t be afraid to try something a little outside of your comfortable.
For my tall babes, see Leslie’s outfit further down in the post.
Over the years my appreciation of wine has certainly increased. I really enjoy a glass of wine after a long day at work or while I’m watching my fav shows “Scandal”. I’m partial to a glass of chilled white, and since I am a foodie and love to try new and exciting recipes, I’m always looking for a great new bottle of white wine to pair with a meal. You can catch me in the kitchen pouring wine while I’m cooking (a la Julia Child). I find that wine just gives a recipe a little extra kick and makes it perfect. Ok I digress, but I just can’t help talking about my other passion GOOD FOOD LOL.
For our winery outing I opted for something cute and simple because walking thru the vineyards and wine tasting always seems to be that much more enjoyable when you’re comfortable. I wore my flowy checkered black and white skirt and a soft orange sleeveless turtleneck to add a pop of color.
To accessorize my look, I went with gold cuffs and a thin leather gold belt, because I just love gold and orange together, I find they marry well. I left-off my usual stilettos for this one and put on my favorite comfy camel color chunky heeled strappy sandals.
I grabbed my purse, put on some lipstick, took a second look in the mirror and baby that girl was looking fine like a glass of wine! LMAO
Picture it, warm balmy weather, wide open spaces, a terrace with cozy seating and a picturesque back drop….this is the image that springs to mind when I think of going to a winery and of course, we cannot leave out the best part, sampling the selection of wines on offer!
My look for a romp at a winery mirrors my tastes when it comes to wine: sweet , cool, and crisp. I want to feel relaxed and comfortable as I go ambling through the sellers of some of Ontario’s Finest vineyards. As you can no doubt tell, this girl, who is usually all about her bright bold colours, decided to switch it up by going with a black and white palette for my look. The oversized men’s shirt is the perfect piece to allow me the freedom of movement to really knock those glasses of wine back!LOL It’s comfortable and perfectly in keeping with the current trend towards women rocking menswear inspired pieces.
The geometric print tube skirt I chose to rock with my look hugs my every curve and is the perfect feminine contrast to the masculinity of the shirt. To this I then added some more fun print in the form of these check print flats from Kate Spade (thanks Kate), and this sexy black shoulder bag with a funky chain detail.
To give my look just a tini–wini bit of colour I chose to wear this fun red wooden bangle. An oldie but a goodie. There are just some accessories in my wardrobe that I just can never part with, regardless of how long I’ve had them or how many times I’ve rocked them!
So, hears to your health and your own adventures in wine country! Cheers!

Niagara-on-the-Lake is always one of my favorite spots to visit. It’s a beautiful and quaint town, but more importantly, there’s an unlimited amount of amazing wines! Since it was a nice warm day and I was feeling particularly chippy, I decided to go for an explosion of color!
Since there was going to be a lot of walking around, I decided to wear a light weight tunic. Now, let me level with you for a second… This dress is on the short side! That’s what tends to happen when you’re shopping while tall at stores not dedicated to us. I loved the print so much that I decided to nab it anyway. I sometimes wear it as a top, but when I do wear it as a dress, I “protect my assets” by wearing shorts, you know, in case I drop something that I actually want to pick up! lol
I continued my color blast with a bright fuchsia purse and a yellow belt to cinch my waist.
My plus size divas can recreate my look with this fab dress which is currently on sale! *Score*
