Off the Wall
It was the great MJ who told us that “tonight…gotta leave that 9 to 5 upon the shelf…and just enjoy yourself”, and that is exactly what the ladies of Fab Four Fashion and their guests did last Saturday night! Friends, both old and new, congregated en mass at a swanky restaurant in downtown Toronto to celebrate the launch of the Fab Four Fashion blog and say thank you to all those who have shown them so much love & support along the way! And to those of you who were unable to attend, a huge thank you goes out to you as well!
So what do the Fab Four like to wear when they decide to “live their life off the wall”? Check-check-check check it out!
I’ve been locked up in the house way to long due to the brutal winter we’ve had; and now, this spring season is proving to be subpar thus far. But, “I got my freakum dress on, Ladies Get your freakum dress on” cause tonight it’s the night! It’s the Fab Four Fashion Launch Party … (oh I know you love my remix of Beyoncé’s Freakum Dress On LOL )
For our party I decided to go with sexy, fitted and short (oh yeah, it’s a “freakum dress”). I scored this little number a few seasons ago from ASOS on sale, and let me tell you, it was worth every penny! Since my dress was a tad on the short side, I had my tailor let out the hem to give me a bit more length (you know a girl’s gotta keep it classy).
I paired this look with a nice black and gold belt to accentuate my curvy frame, and these gorgeous black lace up cage sandals which compliment the look flawlessly. Since I got the nails done, the toes needed to be on display! And at any rate, it’s a party right!
To further accessorize my look, I wore a gold bracelet and a funky gold ring I got from Forever 21.
For my Tall Divas of the world I didn’t forget about you! Here are the options I found for you to recreate a similar look: check out these dresses here and here. I also found some Nine West shoes that go up to size 12.
And remember, “wave your hands side to side, put it in the air, wave your hands side to side, put it in the air , clap, clap, clap like you don’t care”. That’s the Fab Four Fashion/Toronto’s Destiny’s Child version of “711” (you already know who is the Beyoncé of the group LMAO).
What was it MJ said; don’t stop till you get enough? Well, I just can’t get enough of the gorgeous clothing designed by Clover Canyon! Their use of colour and print is fresh and exciting; their prints, bold and beautiful, and best of all, they believe in sales! Can I get an “AMEN”!
Interestingly enough, on their web site, you can set up price alerts so that you’re immediately advised when that certain little something that caught your eye has finally dropped in price. Can I get a “Hallelujah”!
And finally, I adore that they combine funky bold prints with classic, simple lines. This magically delicious dress, which I immediately pounced on once it went on sale, is a perfect illustration of these great attributes (i.e. exciting colour, bold print, classic lines and purchased on sale!!) The quintessential fashion grand slam! Can I get a “PREACH”!
In view of the fact that I am slightly on the taller side of the height spectrum at about 5’9 (you tall ladies will understand my plight), I often find myself buying pieces with three quarter sleeves. This way, I don’t have to worry about the sleeve length being awkwardly short or buying the item 2 sizes up then having it tailored to fit my frame. Well, I have now purchased a few items from Clover Canyon, most of them long sleeved and I can attest to the fact that, despite my purchasing the smallest size, the sleeve length still hits where it should! Thank you clover Canyon for getting me!
I wanted this look to be all about the dress, so I paired it with my nude stilettos and a simple clutch, and bippity boppity boo, I’m ready for the ball!
As soon as we decided that we were going to have this celebration, I knew that I would pull out a sexy LBD. I’m usually all about color but there’s something about a black dress that I simply love.
The sweetheart neckline of this particular dress provides the sexy and the length ensures the classy! The scuba material gives an awesome fit and the underwire front adjusts nicely at the bust. Since the dress is simple enough, I used it as a canvas for that glorious necklace! I won’t lie, I did a spin and a dip when I saw it! It truly takes the outfit to the next level.
I finished my look with these laser cut sandals, a gold cut out cuff and this fun box clutch. With that, I was ready to par-tay!
Dress: Topshop // Necklace: Aldo (Ladies, for some reason, the necklace is not online but it’s definitely at the store!! If you love it, run to the nearest Aldo store, quick!); similar here and here // Cuff: Aldo (sold out); similar here and here // Shoes: Nine West (Since the larger sizes are gone, check these out!)// Clutch: Ebay
Greetings massive! I definitely feel like I’m living off the wall and outside my comfort zone in this outfit.
Once again, I went back to black and white by pairing my grid patterned skirt first seen here with a white vest and body suit.
Ladies, I know that some of us have some mixed feelings about showcasing our arms as the temperatures rise so if you choose, you could swap out the sleeveless vest for a white jacket. Maybe push up the sleeves to “juh-ju” the look a little bit.
I completed my look with an oversized silver clutch and fun polka dot pumps.
Oh and I need to wax poetic about my earrings. This ear cuff is the earring of my WHOLE LIFE! I found it at H&M and snatched it up so quick I would have made Usain Bolt do a double take…man, I probably broke an Olympic record or two! LOL
