The Fab Four Vanity Fair
Glamour, style and class are some of the ideas we hope to share with you through our blog, so Vanity Fair was a fitting title for this post. Through this blog, we want to help women who sometimes struggle to find clothing that speaks to their sensibility and style by showing how we’ve scoured the internet and brick & mortor stores to find clothes and footwear that makes us feel like a million scratch that, a billion dollars!
Judy’s Vanity Fair Look
My look was inspired by the glamourous covers of Vanity Fair….I know I dream big and why not!
I paired my knee length faux leather pencil skirt with a black peplum top in a scuba material, which I love because it accentuated my curves and offered great support for my bust.
I particularly loved this look because it brings out the bombshell in me and it makes feel sexy while at the same time keeping it classy.
And finally to add a little extra something to my outfit I added a colourful choker and my signature pink lipstick.
Leslie’s Vanity Fair Look
As I was leisurely strolling through Hudson’s Bay’s Yonge & Queen store in downtown Toronto one Saturday afternoon, I happened across a rack carrying some mixed, largely non-descript, items of clothing. Like a heat-seeking missile, my eyes immediately zeroed in on one particular piece; a gorgeous printed blazer by a company out of Los Angeles called Clover Canyon, and that was it for me. I fell in LOVE with their entire clothing line!
This dress was my second purchase from Clover Canyon, and won’t be my last! Dubbed the “Matador De Toros”, this open back dress has a beautiful print that makes you think of a bullfighter’s elegant costume.
One of the many things I adore about this dress is that the lengths of the sleeves were PERFECT despite the fact that I purchased their smallest size (x-small) to fit my 5’9” frame.
This is definitely a dress that holds its own, so I paired it with simple yellow pumps and a small, gold box clutch that would not compete with the bold print. I will admit, while I simply A-D-O-R-E this dress, this is not the look for the faint of heart. But, for the bold woman who is ready to make a statement when she enters a room whether it be a party, a stage, or a bull ring, she will knock ‘em dead in this sexy little number!

Nancy’s Vanity Fair Look
Christmas is always a great time: we get to spend time with our loved ones and then it’s score time on those Boxing Day sales!
Anybody that knows me, knows that I love bold colors, I love jumpsuits and I love a good sale, so this is a win on all counts! I spotted this piece at Guess. The funny thing is that I haven’t stepped foot in that store in ages, I’m so glad that I stopped by!
Tall sisters, if you’re like me, you’re probably weary about even looking at pants & long sleeves offerings from stores that aren’t tailored to us. Try it on anyway, you never know! In this case, the inseam was already surprisingly long, but I further extended the length by redoing the hem – I’m sure you already knew about this little trick!
I kept my fit simple by wearing some lazor cut sandals, my Superwoman cuffs and statement earrings.
Gail’s Vanity Fair Look
This two piece number caught my eye as I was perusing the Reb Dolls online store. The site carries fashions that push the boundaries of what plus size women are “supposed” to wear and I love that!
Being that black and white is my favourite colour combination, I was immediately drawn to this two piece ensemble. The grid pattern is a nod and a wink to this piece from Balmain’s Spring 2015 collection designed by Olivier Rousteing.
I have to admit that wearing a two piece body con outfit like this is one is definitely outside my comfort zone. For the people who know me well, my fashion “uniform” used to be black pants and a top only – but no more!
I completed my look by donning slingback pumps by Tory Burch and a clutch that mirrors the grid pattern of my outfit, by JustFab.
