I have always wanted to attend Ascot Raceday, the famed horse race in the UK. I imagined I would don a hat of magnificent proportions and hob nob with British aristocracy. So, in honour of that little day dream of mine my Fab Four Fave is all about a day at the racecourse! I have a secret…that being that I love hats!! To me, they offer an air of mystery in a way that no other garment or accessory can. One can be oh so glamourous with a hat
As a tall woman, a lot of my shopping has to be done online. I realized how extensive my online shopping was when I realized that I remembered my credit card number by heart. *Insert wide eyed emoji* As the online retail industry continues to grow, more and more of us are shopping on the World Wide Web. We find cool sites, fall in love with pieces, quickly order… only to be disappointed when the items comes. And then, to add insult to injury, in some cases, we have to
Trends come and go and we are quite happy that Sporty Chic is sticking around this spring! From Alexander Wang, who always has a penchant for this style, to other designers like Stella McCartney and Balenciaga, this look has been seen on numerous runways. The awesome thing about this trend is that it is comfortable yet crazy, sexy, cool (did we show our age with this one?). In addition to its versatility, it’s also a trend that can easily be adapted for all body types. Case in point: here is how we styled
Some of us are dreaming of the summer sun, and others are packing to chase the summer sun… I fall in the latter category!!! Sorry, I didn’t mean to rub it in, I’m just overly excited! Therefore, this week’s Fab Four Fave edition will be all about the beach! This cover up dress is absolutely to die for. This printed beauty is from none other than Mara Hoffman. The bold print is not for the faint of hearts and will be sure to command attention. Because the dress has
I know I told you in my previous makeup post that I was a matte lipstick girl, but sometimes a matte girl needs to venture out to see what else is out there for her. This time around this matte girl fell for some creamy and moisturizing lipsticks. This is why today’s post is about my most recent discovery. The first lipstick I’m wearing is called Michiyo a shocking pink shade from Nars. I love this lipstick because it’s a long wearing vibrant colour which is perfect for spring and summer.
Forget the call of the wild! The inescapable call of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) was too alluring to the ladies of Fab Four Fashion this week. We were awed by the thought provoking, expressive work of painter Jean-Michel Basquiat. His large scale pieces held us enthralled, as did the beautiful lines and winding contours of the architecture of the gallery. I mean really, who could ask for a better backdrop for our looks this week than the AGO! Leslie’s Look I was inspired by menswear lines like
One thing we absolutely LOVE about Fridays is that it’s the end of a very long work week, but more importantly it’s when the Fab Four get to show you what we’re lusting after. This week Leslie up and by her admission it couldn’t come soon enough! I have been lusting, craving, hankering, pining, reverently yearning for this Smythe printed blazer that is just that little bit out of reach (darn those pesky bills), but here’s one of the ways I plan to rock it when I finally
Black and white is one of my fav colour combinations. I know I’ve mentioned that before but it bares repeating. So, when I came across some old re-runs of Charlie’s Angels I was inspired to recreate the cool 70’s vibe of police women television dramas like the Angels or Cagney & Lacey for day and night. The two looks below also highlight the versatility of a great suit! For my day time look I’ve paired my trusty black turtleneck with a white jacket and pants and funky wedge boots.
