Liesl Binx: Contemporary Plus Size Apparel
Liesl Binx, do you know who she is? Well before you scroll down and feast your eyes on the magnificence that can be created in the form of beautiful shades of teal and blue let me tell you a bit about her. She is a designer, based out of Seattle, who creates simple but elegant plus size garments. Each piece embodies class, delicateness and high fashion. She understands that plus-size and curvy women deserve well-made clothes, and Fab Four Fashion is here for this! So, without further ado, we present you Liesl Binx!
When first starting the blog, I never envisioned that designers would approach me to wear their clothes. Well imagine my excitement when we received an email from designer Liesl Binx asking Gail and I to wear one of her beautiful creations. I was stunned and excited at the same time; first because – wow- a designer noticed me, and second because –wow- a designer noticed me (yes, it needed to be said twice!LOL). I was just so elated I couldn’t wait to see her collection.
I ran to her website to see what she had to offer and I was so pleased. For me, Liesl Binx creations are classic and timeless. Her latest collection is a mix of blues, purples and browns which are great additions to your wardrobe. I love that she makes only a few of each piece, which gives your piece that feeling of exclusivity.
While browsing through her website I came across this beautiful, teal coloured, deep-v dress and it was like the story books say: love at first sight! From the pale teal colour to the flared princess-like shape I love it all. I am usually not that big on taffeta; however this dress is so light weight and fit so well that I just couldn’t resist. The material has a slight stretch to it which gives me room to breathe. Allow me to highlight some of the special features of this dress that I simply adore. . First it fits very well, and most importantly I don’t feel to snug in the bust area. Second, the skirt on this dress is just amazing! I love the full circle shape of the skirt.
Third, this dress is perfect for an elegant cocktail party or a wedding. Fourth, the teal colour compliments my complexion very well. And fifth, depending on what colour accessories you wear with the dress, it will pick up the undertone of the fabric (how cool is that!).
Last but not least, never be afraid to get creative with your clothing. To make the dress more voluminous I wore a tutu skirt underneath and a gold belt to accentuate my smaller waist. I decided to wear this dress with my gold accessories and a diamond necklace. To complete my look I wore my blush pumps, because blush and teal go oh so well together. It’s like the perfect marriage of color. Ah what a joy!!! This dress is right up my alley: soft and feminine LOL. Kudos to Liesl on the great quality of this dress, and I’m equally impressed with the fact that the dress is hand-made! I will definitely keep an eye out for Liesl Binx latest collection to see what she has in store and to ensure I get my hands on another one of her beautiful creations.

Blue is one of my favourite colours so when I laide eyes on this two tone beauty from Liesl Binx I was just over the moon excited! I love the 70’s disco, Studio 54 vibe this dress gives me!
This dress, dubbed the half and half dress, is made of a polyester lycra blend. The botice is fitted and fully lined and the dress also comes with two tone coloured belt made of the same material as the dress.
I completed my look by adding my ever present “frosting”, this gorgeous statement necklace and blush coloured pumps.
As I’ve mentioned before, I love when my clothing can do double duty so I imagine wearing this vibrant coloured dress to a wedding in the tropics or pairing it with a navy blue turtleneck, chunky heeled knee high boots and a moto style jacket and I’d be ready for fall.
