CARIBANA

Grp Edited IMG_6709

The biggest North American festival most commonly known as Caribana is here and Fab Four Fashion is ready to jump and wave.  Ever heard of the expression “Hair done, nails done, everything did” if yes, you are ready to see our party outfit ideas.Grp Edited IMG_6618

I don’t know about you; but we ready, we ready, yeah we ready, we ready, ready, ready, ready, ready (those who know, know, but for those who don’t know, I didn’t all of a sudden start to stutter, I’m borrowing the words from Bunji Garlin… lol).

ND Edited IMG_7297

Caribana is the time of year when you leave all your inhibitions at the door and just get on’ bad! And I’m here for that. I’m a day party kind of girl. I enjoy a great rooftop, having the sun beaming on my skin, dancing to good tunes while waving my Haitian flag and sipping on some delicious beverages. So for a day party, instead of reaching for a freakum dress, I’ll go for something more playful.

This piece right here fits the bill perfectly. When I heard it calling my name tucked away hidden in between racks, I thought that it was a cute A-line dress and I worried that it was going to be on the short side. But lo and behold, it’s not a dress, it’s a romper!

ND Edited IMG_7325

It has all the winning elements: low scoop back, pockets, a great print, need I say more? The romper is made of polyester so while the material is “stiff” enough to hold its shape, its light weight enough to allow you to bust a move!

Since this romper is a stunner, accessorizing it was a breeze, I just added a dash of gold on my ears and my signature bangles and I am ready to whiiiiine, get ready to whiiiiine (again, those who know, know, and for those who don’t these are words of wisdom from my girl Alison Hinds. LOL)

Let me see your rag…let me see your flag!!! Another fun and exciting Caribana weekend is about to hit the 6ix and I could not wait to limber up, do my stretches in anticipation of working my waist to some sweet soca “rydims”!! Of course, what would all these fabulous fetes be without an equally fabu outfit to make sure I keep up with the sizzle being laid down in the tracks. This look is for the grown and sexy women who know how to “get on bad”, but always leave ‘em wanting more!LOL

LT Edited IMG_6808

This look is all about being cool, comfortable and allows for the flexibility of whining down without any wardrobe malfunctions or potential peep shows!LOL  The fit is perfect in that it hugs my waist, but flows away nicely into a wide leg that gives me an extra sway to my walk! Now tall girls out there, I scooped  this jumpsuit up at Zara, and normally they are amazing at making their pants and jumpsuits with a good length in the inseam. I can usually buy an extra small size and still at my height of 5ft 9in wear at least a 4 inch heel (or higher). This was not the case with this jumpsuit. I had to let out the hem completely to be able to rock it with my high heels.

LT Edited IMG_6858

This look was so simple yet so elegant. The colour makes it impossible for you not to get noticed and for those women who like easy outfits, it’s a jumpsuit so no need to work out that perfect pairing of top and bottom.

Accessorizing was a breeze. I wanted to be glam, so I wore a bold statement necklace and a rose gold cuff. My nude shoes rounded out the look and with that, I was ready to jump and wave!

“….And I feel like I just win a million dollars!”  The lyrics to a beloved soca song by KES The Band always gets me ready to jump and wave during Caribana aka JUMP UP to us West Indians!!!  From wonderful island rhythms to delicious West Indian food like roti, I just love this time of year!

And what would Caribana weekend here in the Tdot be without great parties to attend with equally great friends.  For my Caribana party look the watch word was sultry!

I chose this sage green front knot body con dress with a plunging neckline.  Hey, its Caribana one has to live a little LOL.  I added this gold bodychain to accent the plunging neckline that I just love!

To complete my look I added nude pumps and even more gold accessories.  Now I’m ready to dance the night away with my peeps!

Caribana is fast approaching, and while we try to hold on to the last few weeks of summer to take advantage of our outfits, we can also pay homage to one of the biggest Caribbean parties of the year!

This year my Caribana vibe is calling for sexy rompers, shorts and jumpers. For a nice evening rooftop party, my outfit of choice is this sexy romper I got from ASOS.  I’m always a fan of prints or geometric graphic prints.

I copped this romper on sale.  I loved the white and black print, although I was initially concerned about the length.  However this romper wasn’t too short, most importantly my peaches were fully covered.

JS Edited IMG_6991

This romper allows me to jump and wave, and more importantly whine up and twerk a little bit LOL. The long sleeves are perfect for the cool summer breezes on the rooftop, because when I’m out for Caribana I don’t like walking around with a coat.

JS Edited IMG_7013

What I like the most about my romper is that it transitions very well from day with a cute pair of flats, to evening with a nice pair of heels.

To spice up my look I went for a black, white and pink, snake skin stiletto that was also purchased from ASOS.  Last but not least, since the romper has a sexy v-neckline, I thought I would add one of my favorite necklaces to accessorize my look.

JS Edited IMG_7088

Now that I’m finally ready I can’t wait to “duck” on my soca tune “Ducking” and find my dance partner for “One Dance” by Drake!

Going To The Chapel…

Summer is just around the corner, heralding the commencement of another wedding season! Finding the right dress to attend different styles of weddings can sometimes be a little tricky. But never fear, the ladies of Fab Four Fashion are here and found some sassy, summery looks to give you some ideas of what to wear when you are attending that wedding.grp IMG_0604

Judy’s LookJS IMG_1733

I’m always on the lookout for the perfect dress. So needless to say, when I have a wedding to attend, I always have a little somethin-somethin’ waiting in the proverbial wings of my closet, just itching to make an appearance. From cocktail weddings style dresses to country style wedding dresses, you name it, I either have it, or plan to find it.JS IMG_1746

Let me tell you about the cute dress that I found that is just perfect for attending a cocktail style wedding.  I first saw it on a gorgeous, fellow blogger that goes by the name of Simplycyn on the Gram, and went straight to the ASOS site to make it mine! It’s a wiggle style dress in a light scuba material. The dress has a lovely vibrant, colourful, flowery pattern, with a high neckline and a small triangular opening at the back. What I love most about it is that it works so well for spring, summer, and early fall.JS IMG_1593

Composed of a light, stretchy scuba material, this dress fits me like a glove, hugging me in all the right places. To accentuate the smallest part of my body, I wore a skinny yellow belt to accompany the dress. But, most importantly, because the dress gives me room to breathe (which I love), I will have enough room to hit the midnight buffet at that wedding!LOL

To complete my cocktail style wedding look, I wore my blush colored pumps, put on my gold cuffs and some dangly earrings, and just like that, I’m ready for the next summer wedding adventure!JS IMG_1763

Nancy’s Look

What will the bride be wearing? What will the venue look like? What about the food? All very exciting questions when I get closer to a wedding date. But most importantly, what am I going to wear?! I need to buy new shoes! Always a good reason to buy shoes LOLnd IMG_1967

When choosing what to wear, the type of wedding is key: you don’t necessarily want to wear a ball gown to a backyard wedding, right? If you’re attending a fun cocktail wedding, then this little number is just the right piece!nd IMG_2052

I love so many things about this dress. The color is so vibrant, it’s definitely an eye catcher. The length is perfect, which is key for us long legged babes. The lace adds just the right touch of class. And of course, it’s open back. All of this spells P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N in my book!nd IMG_2040

I completed my look with these perfect multi colored Swarovski crystal earrings, simple lace up sandal and huge hair!

And ladies, make sure you remember to bring your flip-flops so that you can dance the night away!nd IMG_1948

Leslie’s LookLT IMG_1144

When granted the esteemed privilege of baring witness to a couple’s nuptials, there are so many looks that are appropriate these days. Those days of not wearing black to a wedding are over! But when shopping for that dress, my first goal is usually to select a garment that will get many wears in my wardrobe (gotta watch that bottom-line from time to time:-), and of course, I wana slay’em!LT IMG_1255

My second objective, is to hit’em in the gut with a pop of colour! This dress scores high on both fronts! The style is an overall classic, with the added benefit of the off the shoulder style being all the rage this summer; and the fact that it makes me feel like Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman” after her grand make-over doesn’t hurt one bit!;-)LT IMG_1170

I wanted to keep this look understated, so I paired this fire engine red dress with a bold necklace, simple earrings and a simple gold high-heeled sandals.

So, bring out the preacher man and get me to the church on time baby because I will simply die if I don’t hear those “I dos”!LT IMG_1494

Yes folks, it’s that time of year again – wedding season!  This time around I’m dressed for a romantic vineyard wedding up in the country!  Imagine promenading amongst vines upon vines of grapes ripening in the summer sun – savoring delicious glasses of wine, ah heaven!GT IMG_0513

GT IMG_0927

For these vineyard nuptials I went for a pink and lilac floral off-the-shoulder dress.  The dress, while formfitting, is still very comfortable so I can dance the night away under a twinkling night sky.GT IMG_0929

While I was going for a sexy and romantic look given the daring neckline of the dress, the hemline hits me just below my knee so I’m still keeping it classy too (wink, wink!) LOL

To complete my look, I added this blinged out bracelet and dangly gold earrings.  Of course, I had to have a clutch to hold all my bits and bobs.  With that my friends, I’m ready for another twirl around the dance floor!GT IMG_0523

We are baaack from a much needed hiatus but I must say if feels good to be back. This year I’m focused on my evolving style.  I have so many ideas and I can’t wait to share them with all of you.  For my first look of the year I went with this bedazzling two tone sparkly sequin dress. I thought this dress would be perfect for a proper return to the blogging world.

JS IMG_8841

I scored this dress at a store that, until recently, I don’t really go to very often but since I found this gorgeous dress there I will be sure to browse the Reitman’s store and website more often now.  What I love the most about the dress is the 2 tone copper and silver colours. It’s a very short well fitting bodycon dress with very good stretch fabric.

JS IMG_8854

I love this dress so much I intended to get the full use out of it and I have a vision of adding feathers at the bottom to remix it and to add few extra inch to this fabulous dress.

JS IMG_8790

To complete my look I put on my feather jacket, my ankle booties and my Mom’s vintage clutch and I’m ready to slay.

nd IMG_9144Don’t call it a come back! We’ve been here for… one year 🙂 For our first photo shoot post vacay, we decided to don our fav looks which make us feel like we can take over the world. And in doing so, I chose a LRD (that’s a little red dress) that is 100% me!

ND IMG_9005

 

 

ND IMG_9020First off, the colour is just divine. As a huge fan of bright colors, this dress had to be on the menu. Second, it’s backless! You already know how I feel about that… lol  I will repeat it for the sake of any new readers: I could spend the rest of my days in a backless anything. The subdued sexiness of an open back is just everything. And third, it shows off my gams! This dress makes me feel all kinds of amazing, which is just what I plan on being in 2016! Stay tuned for more!

New year, new look! We couldn’t wait to get back into the action and share some sexy, sizzling looks with you all.

My look: bold and beautiful! This dress called out to me one day as I was perusing the web (a.k.a. on-line shopping). The pattern, fit and detailing were perfect for my style and shape.

LT IMG_9479

The pattern, coupled with the fit, showed off the curves I have and the scoop back was perfect to hide my bra, but still show off a little skin. I love the length of this dress as well, as it is long enough to make Mama happy, but short enough to let that cutie at a party know I got pretty nice gams!;-)

lt IMG_9622

All I needed to do to complete this look was add a little dangle in the form of these earrings from H&M and some nude shoes that keep the dress the focus of the look.

And just like that I’m ready for cocktails and caviar.

As you all know, I’m all about the faux fur life so essentially I created my outfit around this fabulous fur stole!

GT IMG_9213

This nude faux suede front twist dress is the business.  I found it on the MissGuided site and knew I immediately had to have it for my come back look.  The ruching and vneckline does wonders for my curves and décolletage!

GT IMG_9274

 

GT IMG_9321

What I love about this particular retailer is that they cater to all sizes, regular, petite, tall and plus size!  Amen!

GT IMG_9228

To complete my look I added leopard print slingback kitten heels, and a little bling around my neck.  Oh and of course I’ve basically got the whole world dangly from my hand in the form of a “golden globe” clutch!  So, for 2016 and beyond I’m doing as Queen Bey commanded – I’m in FORMATION and ready to slay ALL DAY!
