Les Poupounes de Luxes
When Canadian, Montreal-based brand Les Poupounes de Luxe collaborates with Fab Four Fashion, one can only expect that “We the North” are at their very best. Their brand’s message is “We are Montreal Born, our clothes are Canadian made, and Les Poupounes de Luxe stands for a new standard in ready-to-wear clothing uniting women of all sizes”, and Fab Four Fashion is all about that!
Every woman needs a little black dress (LBD) in her wardrobe. It’s one of the simplest ways to look sleek, elegant and sophisticated in one foul swoop. Now, add in a sexy front slit and some exposed shoulder action and you’ve got a winner!
It’s a very rare thing to find me in all black everything. But, when all black looks like this, well then, how could I resist! The style of the dress is simple with enough visual interest to keep it interesting; but what I love about an outfit with such simple lines, is that I get to accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. This dress provides the perfect foundation for that gorgeous necklace you’ve been dying to wear; those bold earrings you just haven’t found the right outfit for, but just had to buy; or those shoes that you know were super funky and not your usual, but you could just not leave them in the store!
This dress feels great and is well made. The sizes seem to run just a tad big, but that is all good, because I can easily take this piece to the tailor so I have that “made to measure” feel.
To accessorize my look, I wore bold earrings, a silver cuff on each wrist, and some sexy gladiator heels that let everyone know that I came to slay!

This Les Poupounes suit has got me feeling like wheeling and dealing, brokering mergers and acquisitions like a stealth corporate raider! Basically, this suit is what corporate dreams are made of.
The versatility of a great suit just can’t be beat. It can go from the boardroom to Thursday happy hour (or as we Montrealers call it 5 a 7) easily. Moreover, one can wear the jacket or the skirt with other things in one’s closet. I just love when my clothing can do double duty!
The suit features a peplum jacket with a hook and eye closure and satin lapels. The fit on this jacket is out of this world fabulous. Often times I have trouble finding jackets that fit correctly but this Les Poupoune gem is perfect.
I paired the jacket with this cross over hem skirt which is in a pencil style and perfectly accentuates my curves. The cross over style also allows for a little bit of leg to peak through – ooo la la. The skirt also features a hook and eye closure as well as a hidden button.
Both the jacket and the skirt are made of a double knit material that includes spandex so there is more give and ease of movement so I don’t feel as though I’m trapped in the suit.
I wore a salmon coloured sleeveless shirt underneath the jacket for a subtle pop of colour. I slipped into some blush/nude coloured pumps and to jazz things up even further I added this leopard print clutch.

While browsing on Instagram I saw fellow Montreal blogger @Mllgeri wearing a black jumper which suited her very well. I immediately asked her where she got it and found out it was from a Montreal based company called Les Poupounes.
It’s always nice to discover a Canadian brand that understands that women of fuller shapes and sizes can be fashionable. What you will find in their collection is the basic, classic and timeless black and white pieces that you can mix for work and various events.
I chose the classic black shorts jumper with a satin waistline. As I mentioned earlier, I saw it on another blogger and knew it would look good on me. What I love about the jumper is that it’s made out of a stretchy spandex material, which gives you room to breathe so you don’t feel too snug in it. Since this fabulous jumper is made out of a thicker material, I would most likely wear it during fall and winter with stockings and a nice pair of heels.
For this look I went for classy and fab! To accentuate my waistline I wrapped a thin leather belt around my waist, and kept it simple by adding long gold earrings. To glamorize my look, I wore my lace-up black studded sandals and grabbed my sexy beaded clutch. Last but not least, this jumper comes in every size. Isn’t it awesome when a retailer realizes that all woman want fashionable pieces, irrespective of size!
We’ve said it once, twice, a thousand times. Finding designers that cater to all body types is cause for a celebration. Retailers and designers, please take notes! It can and is being done, and done beautifully at that.
Les Poupounes de Luxe really personifies what Fab Four Fashion stands for. What I like most (other than the fact that they cater to us all) is that their pieces are classic, must have wardrobe staples. They are the blank canvas that will give you many different wears.
The other obvious bonus is that you’re not limited to a “tall” or “curvy” section of their site. All items can be customized. As a lover of jumpsuits (I know that you all know about my love affair with jumpsuits), I automatically zeroed in on the Tuxedo Jumpsuit. Seeing the inseam of 32″ almost stopped me in my tracks. Since they make every piece, I figured that I would ask if a few additional inches could be added, and voila, I had this perfectly fitted jumpsuit.
The satin at the lapel and trimming on the side pockets elevates this classic piece. The rayon, nylon and spandex combination ensure close fit without being clingy. This chic piece is a standout piece on its own, but I decided to add some gold accessories because black and gold are such a great combination. I added the belt to accentuate my waist, the bangles are my go to and the drop earrings are just too cool to pass on! Punctuate it all with studded pumps and just like that, I was ready to strut my stuff.
Plus size ladies, this jumpsuit comes in all sizes so feel free to get on Slay on with this very piece.
Special thanks to Les Poupounes de Luxe for the fantastic pieces.
