Tis the season of gingerbread, eggnog, men in red suits, and of course many, many parties. One of these holiday celebrations is that office holiday party. If you haven’t figured out what you plan to wear yet, never fear, the ladies of Fab Four Fashion are here! Check out the looks that they pulled together to set the office a-buzz!

The holiday season is here and with that another office party is around the corner. Every year my work throws amazing glamorous, banquet hall parties and every year I need to bring it in style.

This year I went for simple, elegant and cute with a vibrant red jumper that I found at Ziza Boutique, located in Oakville, Ontario and they have an on-line site and can ship everywhere.
My curvy and plus sisters this one is for you and it’s also available in black!

js-edited-img_8909

This red jumper screams holiday jingle bells all the way, with a fitted bottom to accentuate my curves. I love the loose top portion which allows me to indulge in extra appetizers and drinks without feeling too snug lol.

js-edited-img_8858

Last but not least, the back of the jumper has an exposed zipper, which from the back gives you the illusion of it being 2 pieces.

My office party look wouldn’t be complete without a pair of leopard print pumps and a dazzling necklace.

Just like that I’ll be dancing the night away

This dress channels my inner Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman” post make-over of course!lol Not only did I choose this gorgeous designer dress because of the vibrant colour, but the fit was freaking phenomenal.

nd-edited-img_7801

First and foremost, we tall girls know that length is everything, and this dress hits me at the perfect spot to keep it cute and classy at that corporate holiday event. The colour is so in keeping with the season matching so perfectly with my boy St. Nick, LOL, and the fit and flare style accentuates my waist-line, creating more of an hourglass silhouette. Added to this long list of attributes is that it also has pockets (this frock rocks)!

nd-edited-img_7882

But ladies, we all know that the holiday season is one of the most expensive times of the year, so wouldn’t it be great to save a few bucks at this time of year and still make a splash at any holiday party? Well, I’ve got good news for you, you can rent this stunning designer dress at a fraction of the cost. Fitzroy Boutique’s got you covered!

nd-edited-img_8146

Accessorizing this look was veritable child’s play; I rocked these to die for high heeled silver sandals and a fun, festive clutch. The requisite bling was then added and I  was ready to work the room at that office holiday event!

This year I decided to remix my black business suit and added these faux fur leather front paneled pants.  I’ve feature both the pants and the jacket before.  I love when clothing in my wardrobe can do double duty!!

I first featured this peplum jacket in this post we did called Les Poupounes de Luxes which offers clothing for women of ALL SIZES! 3 cheers for companies that recognize and offer clothing for all women!  I love the of the style jacket as the flirty peplum  conceals any parts of your body that one might not be crazy about while cinching me in at my waist.

I paired this gem of a jacket with these faux leather front paneled pants that are super comfy and ultra chic and I featured them here on the blog in the post we did called Suzy Shier.  The pants are on pull on and feature a banded waist.  They also have small angled zips on the front.

gt-edited-img_9061

To spice this look up further I added hot pink pumps and this blinged out necktie necklace!

I said it on Cityline and I’ll say it again; my office holiday party look is all about sticking to the 3 c’s: cute, conservative and classy. That holiday party is just not the place to show off Conchita and Rosita (as my friends lovingly calls her boobs!lol). Nor is it time to rock that sexy little number you wore to the club last week that showed off that mole on your thigh! We wanna show your colleagues that you got style and class whether it be in the boardroom or on the dance-floor!

lt-edited-img_8208

I simply LOVE this dress I picked up at Ziza Boutique. The colour is what first caught my eye and the style made me have to have it! It has the perfect amount of funky with the cool frill detail and the classic fit is perfect to highlight my figure.

lt-edited-img_8305

Now, let me tell you about these shoes!!!! Shoes can make or break a party night right? If your feet hurt, you will become a party pooper. These gorgeous blue babies, again from Ziza Boutique, made my breath catch in my throat when I first laid eyes on them! I tried to play it cool, but the girls could tell, it was love at first sight!

lt-edited-img_8392

I kept my accessories simple, yet festive, with a pair of sparkly earrings and bracelet, and of course some jewels for my fingers!

This look will definitely leave a positive lasting impression at any office holiday event!

Let me tell you about this gem of a skirt that I found. Oh no, scrap that; I want to shout about this skirt I found! Are you ready? I found it at a boutique called Giti Online.

Judy Look Aug16

In my on-going quest to find you online boutiques that cater to curvy and plus size women, I stumbled upon this page which featured a beautiful skirt made by Giti Online Boutique.

Judy Look Aug16

I’m a sucker for printed skirts, so it’s no surprise that I fell in love with this beautiful voluminous, high-waisted, silk finished skirt. My experience with ordering with Giti Online was very pleasant. Their website was very easy to navigate, and I received my skirt within 10 days (whoot-whoot!).

Judy Look Aug16

The skirt came as advertised on their site. There is a stretchy lining underneath, and it is well made. This skirt is ideal as it can be paired with so many different tops, thus creating several outfits, just by using the skirt as the foundation for the look.

Judy Look Aug16

To complete my look I wore a high collar, off-white top, and kept it simple and chic with blush pumps, threw on some earrings and bangles, and just like that I feel like I’m in Judy’s very own wonderland.

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!

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!

The Fab Four

Greta Constantine

GRP IMG_1747

Jennifer Hudson, Angelina Jolie and Coco Rocha are just some of the celebrities who’ve worn and loved Greta Constantine.  Co-Founded by Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong, 10 years ago, this design duo is at the pinnacle of Canadian fashion.  The ladies of Fab Four Fashion were beyond thrilled to be wearing their gorgeous designs and to feature them on another Canadian staple – Cityline!

GRP IMG_1595 - Redo

Leslie’s Look

LT IMG_2139

GLAM – OR – OUS! That is what Greta Constantine denotes, connotes and invokes! Someone please give me a pulpit because I feel like preaching! When you find a design house that understands quality in both style and fabrics; gets that woman come in all shapes and sizes, and recognizes women want to be trend setters not fashion followers you have the holy trinity of fashion.  I sometimes feel like we ladies of Fab Four Fashion are like Aristotle telling everyone that the earth is round! We are trying to show retailers and designers that women of all sizes want stylish designs. However, Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong are God’s gift to body diversity, and are truly among the enlightened designers that create masterpieces for all women! (cue choir and blinding white  light:-)!

LT IMG_2182

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this stunning dress. The top portion with its beautiful print and the tea cup shape of the bottom portion were so unique and spoke to the fashionista in me! The stretch in the top portion hugs my slim curves, while the bottom gives me the added volume I’m always looking for.

LT IMG_2507

And ladies, ladies, ladies, this design is  not only gorgeous, but also resilient. The first time I went to sit down in it, I was afraid it might lose it shape or become crushed. Imagine going to the wedding of your bestie or a “friennemy” and looking like you just rolled out of bed by the time you hit the reception! Not cute. Ladies fear not! You can sit, stand, fox trout or pop-n-lock and still not muss the look!

LT IMG_2606

This dress is a standout wedding season winner. In particular those late summer early fall weddings where there’s the beginning of a nip in the air. And accessorising is a cinch. The dress speaks for itself so I did not need much in the way of accessories. I wore dangly pewter earrings, a bold statement ring and my stripe black and silver pumps because I love to mix prints.

And with that, I’m ready to give the bride a run for her money!

What can is say – I’ve simply died and gone to fashion heaven!  I’m draped, cinched all dolled up in Greta Constantine.  Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong, the dynamic design duo, who co-founded Greta Constantine 10 years ago.  They’re a fashion powerhouse in the Canadian fashion scene and I’m beyond blessed to be wearing their sophisticated designs!  I was like a kid in a candy store as I combed through racks and racks of their glorious designs.

GT edited IMG_2680

Ok lets get to my wedding guest outfit.  So, as I mentioned before I poured over the racks sample size designs and sadly there was nothing in my size straight off the rack but those Greta geniuses came to the rescue.  My plus size sisters, you too can get your hands as well as the rest of you in a Greta Constantine design.

GT IMG_1655

This look right here is all about glamour and starts with this high waisted skirt which is the very essence of simple well fitting design.  The skirt is made of a high performance wrinkle resistant (AMEN!) material that can be thrown in the washing machine and presto change-o- clean skirt!

GT IMG_1677

I paired  this gem of a skirt with a simple black tank top from  and a sleek black belt.

Next was this gorgeous silk/wool cape, another Greta Constantine creation.  I feel like Dominique Devereaux from from that night time soap – Dynasty.

So, to complete my wedding guest look I had to add a little bling (because I have to shine bright like a diamond baby lol) in the form of these sparkly earrings and bracelet.  And voila, my outfit is complete! Now where is my champagne?

Weddings during the summertime are awesome but finding the right outfit for different types of weddings can be a pain. When the invitation says bring glamour to another level, one designer that comes to mind is Greta Constantine. With their various elegant styled gowns and their famous tea cup styled dresses, my, my, my… what a treat.

The ladies of Fab Four and I recently had the chance to visit their studio to try on some gowns. Going there I didn’t know what to expect but I knew that I would find an Oscar winning dress.

JS IMG_2762

The first dress that I scooped up is called the Merle Cape style gown. This dress screams elegance and class on so many levels. The top of the dress is loose and is equipped with a back cape.  The bottom part is fitted at the hips and flares out near the bottom, which accentuates my hourglass figure.

What’s so special about my gown, is that the cape style is a single layer of microfiber, which allows the material to flow and drape so nicely on me.  I couldn’t be happier because it covers my little tummy.

JS IMG_2967

The cape has a dramatic affect that makes me feel like Diana Ross in Mahogany! I can’t help but to open my arms wide and walk like I own it and fly away gracefully!

The bottom part of this lavish dress is made out of 2 layers of microfiber which is similar to spanx, and the stretchy fabric hugs me perfectly in all the right places.  It’s always amazing to find an established designer that caters to all sizes.  Ladies if you set your coins aside for an exclusive and stunning piece, Greta Constantine would be one of the best choices that will be able to accommodate you!

Checked myself in the mirror, spun around a few times, put on my earrings, and my lipstick, and here comes Queen Supreme ready to slay!

I was so excited to be working with Greta Constantine. I mean, it’s Greta Constantine! Paris Fashion Week Greta Constantine. Ten years strong Greta Constantine. CAFA 2016 Womenswear Designer of the Year winners Greta Constantine. How fantastic!

Going to their studio was so much fun, however choosing the dress was so hard! That’s because my heart fluttered on a number of pieces. But when I tried the Ancha gown, I collapsed like Serena Williams did after her seventh Wimbledon victory.

ND IMG_1952

I love this dress for so many reasons. First, the lenght of this dress accentuates my height and makes me look like a delicious tall glass of blue caracao cocktail honey! Ha! It’s funny how the thing that I wished I could have traded years ago, is the very same that I want to highlight today. I love my height and every piece of clothing that further calls attention to my statuesque frame is a winner in my book.

ND IMG_1895

The shoulder overlays can be worn in a many different ways: whether off the shoulder or asymmetrical, it always looks elegant. Then, we have the side cowl detail on the skirt for the win! You see, I was not blessed with “va-va-voom-baby-making” hips. As such, I appreciate a garment that can add a little volume in the right places. And while the cowl worked in adding volume for me, it serves double duty as it can also hide a little tummy. This only means that you can go for that second portion PLUS dessert.

ND IMG_2026

And last, but certainly not least, this dress is made of a superb microfiber material. This material hails all the way from Italy. It is mainly used for athletic wear, but the men of Greta Constantine had the genius idea of re-purposing it for high fashion. It repels water, smooths  you out and keeps the rich colors. AND, you can throw it in the washing machine. Let me give you some time to reread that last sentence. You can throw it in the washing machine. How fantastic is that!

Not to be outdone, I finished my look with the amazing jewelry from none other than Rebekah Price. This statement jewelry is made of multi colored Swarovski crystal and it married perfectly with the color of my gown. That was just the wow factor that I needed to complement my look and to take it to another level.

This look is so glamorous! I need to find a reason to dress like this on a daily basis!

Jumpsuits For Everyone

JS Edited IMG_0845

JS Edited IMG_0654

Well it’s that time of the year ladies, for me to talk to you about one of my favorite pieces of clothing which is jumpsuits and jumpers.  My love for this fabulous piece of clothing keeps evolving every time I find a beautiful new jumper.

JS Edited IMG_0845

Let me talk to you about this lovely jumpsuit that I found on my favorite site ASOS.  I had been eyeing this jumpsuit for months and months, while I waited for it to go on sale. My heart almost broke when it went out of stock, but the cheerful and hopeful young gal that I am waited patiently and the jumpsuit came back in stock and was on sales so I snatched it up ASAP.

JS Edited IMG_0764

I chose this jumpsuit because I love the color, and the mixed stripe print comprised of black, beige and yellow.  Another reason is that it is a bit different from my usual style and I wanted to switch it up and get a culottes style jumpsuit. Earlier this year I expressed that I wanted to take more fashion risks and try new things and one of them was to get culotte style pants and jumpsuits and I did.

JS Edited IMG_0794

I must say I really love culottes style jumpsuits, however, at first I was a bit concerned that the length might look weird on me, but after I tried it I knew I had a winner. I can wear it with flats and with heels depending on the occasion. I will probably wear this one to a nice summer day party, baby shower or dinner. I have my eyes on a couple others similar type style jumpsuits and I can’t wait to showcase them to you.

Just to give you some ideas of nice summer jumpsuits and rompers, I have found a couple of different options that you ladies might like (see below).

My favorite season is finally here and I can’t wait to bust out some of my cutest summery outfits. I tend to dress up most of the time for every occasion, ask anybody who knows me.  There are times where I just like to throw on a cute little summer dress and go on about my business.

JS Edited IMG_3038

One of my favorite outfits to wear during the summer are maxi dresses, they are easy to put on and can be very fashionable at the same time.  My latest find comes from H&M. I found this lovely maxi dress that has a great mix of blues, greens and whites in a cool pattern. The dress is stretchy, super comfortable and also is a great length. I’m not a big fan of maxi dresses that end above my ankles LOL.

There are also gold studs on the collar of the dress, which makes it even more of a stand-out winner. I like that it is elegant, and that the silhouette is very sliming.  Also, to prevent my thighs from rubbing together on a hot summer day, and to smooth out my lovely lady lumps, I wear shapewear underneath my dress which I purchased at The Bay.

 

JS Edited IMG_3024

I can’t say enough about how essential maxi dresses are to my summer wardrobe. I wear them to do my errands during the weekend, a little brunch with my girls, and I’m good to go. I put on my lipstick, shades, and my flat sandals and watch me slay all summer. Last but not least I’m happy to report that this dress is very generous in size, I got a large and it fits me perfectly. The dress is very long so I’m pretty sure my tall sisters can also enjoy this dress as well.

Whoot-whoot!!!! Summer is here and I could  not wait  to jump into my hot weather gear! When the temperature soars into the 30’s, I need to keep cool, and show off a little skin at the same time!

LT Edited IMG_2472

I happened across this little romper in H&M while running some very important errands one day (i.e. keeping up on what was in the shops:) If you know me, you know it was the fabu print that first caught my eye, and the style was just up my alley! Being a slim girl, I love rocking prints as they give the illusion of added volume. I also love to show off a little leg, to accentuate my height and show off those gams.

LT Edited IMG_2460

My mom used to always say that just about any colour combination goes in summer, and mama, I have to agree with you. I complimented the green and white print of my romper by rocking this funky blue and white necklace and a yellow skinny belt. I went for a neutral high heeled sandal to round out my look, and of course, when the sun rays are beaming, I always break out my trusty shades.

So let’s hit the terrace and bring on the Sangria because it’s a sunshiney day!!!

I seem to really be gravitating towards florals this spring. While it is the “typical” spring thing, this is quite new for me…. And I’m loving it! This little number jumped on my screen as I was perusing the H&M website (side bar, did you hear that H&M will soon offer online shopping?!!??!! It took them long enough but I for one am VERY GLAD!)ND Edited IMG_8945

But the print wasn’t the only thing that attracted me to this little number. The fit! Oh the fit. It’s just perfect. The strategically placed seams allow this dress to hug you in all the right places. While it’s fitted it’s very comfortable and sucks you right in. This is really a thing of sewing magic.ND Edited IMG_8966

I decided to allow the dress to play center stage so I paired it with very minimal accessories. I had to break out the birdcage tho LOL. I added these purple pumps because, well, pop of color. You know how I do. LOL I was thinking about my Mom with this pairing because, as she would say, “it goes together”. It’s one of those things that’s hard to explain, but when it goes, it just goes!ND Edited IMG_9068

Spring is upon us, and it’s time to bring out our lovely floral pattern skirts and dresses and enjoy the beautiful weather. One thing my girls and I enjoy during spring and summer, is going to high tea.

For a high tea event, I’m always torn between wearing a nice flowing dress, a fitted wiggle dress, or a nice skirt. This time my heart settled on this beautiful skirt that I stumble upon on Instagram when I was perusing through @iambeauticurve’s page. I clicked on the pic to get the deets of her outfit, and yeah baby I too was able to score this 2 piece yellow flower patterned skirt and crop top.

JS Edited IMG_9340

That same night I visited the Forever 21 store closest to my home. I must admit, I wasn’t too crazy about the complete coordinate set on me so I only went with the skirt. I was very impressed with the material and love the sheen it has to it.  It’s a great fit on me and I love the fact that it is high waisted and flares out.  Besides, yellow compliments my skin tone very well and I’m a sucker for a floral pattern.  A little confession: I was never a huge fan of floral patterns but once I found the right floral pattern I changed my mind.
JS Edited IMG_9349

For our high tea outing, I wore my new skirt with my off white high collar top which I also found at Forever 21 a few months ago.  To complete my look I wore my gold triangle earrings and my cream and gold pumps by Ivanka Trump.

Ok now I’m ready to go, I just hope they will have my favorite high tea delicacies, which are biscuits, jam and crème fraiche.

I so love going for a proper English afternoon tea! My sis and I started trying afternoon tea at various hotels many years ago when we were still living in Montreal, and the trend has continued ever since!

Of course, it goes without saying that an important part of these outings is the outfit. I love wearing fun , flirty, feminine pieces for these high tea activities; makes me feel like a proper English lady.

LT Edited IMG_9542

I am still in love with all looks mod inspired, so this dress appealed to my retro sensibilities. The cool print and soft sheen immediately caught my attention when I clapped eyes on it on the salesperson in the store; and the short length that shows of my gams to perfection, made for a real winner! I love this style of lose fitted dress as you never need worry about those dreaded panty lines and no need to loosen anything after a big meal;-) To me, the key to the success of this style of dress is to ensure the areas that are supposed to be fitted (i.e. the shoulders and bust), fit well. If they are too big, it will look more sack like (no one wants that!)

LT Edited IMG_9489

There’s no doubt that this dress was the star of my look, all I had to add was some nude pumps, a little sparkle at my ears and wrist and I was ready for my finger sandwiches, scones and clotted cream!

I really created this outfit around these mellow yellow pumps!  They are oh so comfortable, I could literally wear them for hours.  They’re faux suede with an ankle strap and I just love the pointed toe.
GT Edited IMG_8903

Moving up from the shoes is this gloriously feminine skirt.  I love its fullness and the high low situation as well.  The material is neoprene which helps give the skirt that puffy fullness I mentioned earlier.

Another nod to femininity is this black and white off the shoulder top.  Those of you who follow our blog regularly will recognize this top.  I just love having items in my wardrobe I can reach for over and over again.

Fashion Week 2016

GRP IMG_8927

Fashion week is here and once again the ladies of Fab Four Fashion are getting ready to strut their stuff at David Pecaut Square.  Picture it, 4 different beautiful women with 4 different unique styles, one can only imagine that fashion week 2016 would not be the same without Fab Four Fashion.  With that being said, we cordially invite you to feast your eyes on this elegant post that the Fab Four have cooked up for you!

What I love most about fashion week, other than attending the runway shows of course, is dressing up to express my creative vision. This year I went for sophisticated chic meets bold vibrant print. I wore this 50’s inspired green dress with a black elephant print. I scored this little number on sale on the eShakti website. The dress was half price plus they had an additional 40% off on top of that! As you already know from our previous post featuring eShakti, they specialize in customized pieces catering to every size and shape.JS IMG_9667

 

To add an extra layer of volume and edginess to my lovely dress I wore a black tutu underneath (stay tuned because I’ll be premiering this glorious black tutu in an upcoming post). The goal was to have the tutu peeking out beyond the hem to show off a bit of the black crinoline and make it seem like its part of the dress.

My outfit would not have been complete without a ¾ sleeve feather jacket to add a pinch of pizzazz and flare to my look.  To spice things up I wore my gold and black Ivanka trump pumps and a tiny gold belt to add more definition to my waist. Since my look is 50’s inspired, I added a sexy pair of long leather gloves ending at the elbow to further play on the retro theme.

JS IMG_9622

 

 

And finally, the piece that will make every head turn is this to die for clutch. Let me tell you about this breathtakingly beautiful piece of art which I discovered on Instagram.  It’s designed by Ka$hmir this lovely girl who decided to turn her creative juices to clutches, and several other pieces. I was so impressed with her work, I just had to order one of her clutches to show my support. All I can say is that I was impressed from the time I placed my ordered to the time I actually received my clutch. I will definitely be ordering more of her beautiful creations and besides, I am all about women supporting women.

Let me go grab my clutch and voila, I’m ready to rip the runway in style!

Fashion week is always action packed but oh so much fun! I can’t wait to see the fashionable offerings of the other fashion lovers along with what our Canadian designers are cooking up for next fall/winter.

ND IMG_9160

Although Miranda Priestley might not approve, I decided to rock a floral shirt and pants combo. I loved the print and most importantly, it’s super comfortable! Almost like pyjamas (which would keep me on trend as seen on the Thakoon and Givenchy Spring 2016 runway! HA! lol).

ND IMG_9235

 

I also wanted to play on the colors and prints, so I paired my look with some of my sweetest sweet babies – ie my shoes from J. Crew. These fit like a glove and are so darn cute! I completed my look with some gold baubles.

Stay tuned for our action packed week on all our social media platforms!

Nothing is better than a good piece of leather, and these oh so sexy leather overalls I scooped up at H&M make my heart do an extra little pitter-pat! Fitted, funky and fresh is how I would describe this look and I will agree with my big sis (i.e. Gail’s) description of it having a ”Mad Max” vibe and I can dig it!

LT IMG_9780

Needless to say, the key piece in my look were these overalls. I paired them with an off-the-shoulder cashmere, loose fit sweater to give the look an effortlessness and my leopard print pumps to add a touch of print to this simple colour palette.

LT IMG_9834

So, with a quick spritz of my favourite perfume, and my fashion week pass in hand, I’m off to the shows to see what’s going to be hot for Fall/Winter 2016!

Ah another fashion week is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited to see what our talented Canadian designers have in store for us for Fall 2016.  Of course part of the fun and spectacle of fashion week is seeing the amazing streetstyle that will be on full display this week.  So, not to be out done here is my fashion week look.

GT IMG_9361

I went for SPARKLE baby!  The star of this outfit are these sequin covered shorts.  When I spotted them in Forever 21 I just knew I had to have them!  These shorts are super comfortable and have just the right amount of stretch.

GT IMG_9408

Given that these shorts are “lead” in this outfit I kept the rest of my outfit rather quiet.  I donned a white cropped jacket and simple black tank top.  I brought the sparkle upwards with this long tassel necklace and some bling around my wrist.

GT IMG_9579

Last but not least is the handbag/clutch from Alexander Wang.  As the other ladies of Fab Four Fashion know, I’m  a handbag FANATIC!  What I love about this bag is the metal studs on the bottom giving that dash of edginess to my look.

With that, my fashion week look is complete!

I am thoroughly in love with this maxi length skirt and wearing it makes me feel like a princess! I wanted to create “tension” with this look so I paired this ultra feminine skirt with a faux leather moto style jacket.

On the Mélange Mode site my skirt is shown as a halter style dress but it can be re-designed as a skirt if you wish.

GT Edited Melange Mode IMG_1715

Oh and did I mention that this skirt has pockets!!!  There’s nothing I love more than skirts and dresses that have pockets. I wore a royal blue tank top which picks up some of that same colour found in the skirt.

GT Edited Melange Mode IMG_1838

I completed my look with a choker style necklace and hidden beneath my skirt are yellow ankle strap suede pumps.

Judy’s Look

JS Edited Melange Mode IMG_2042I’ve always been a fan of African prints.  I love how certain prints can give life to an outfit. I’m a sucker for that, so when we got the chance to work with fabulous designer Mélange Mode I couldn’t wait to try one of her spectacular creations. I choose the midi skirt because midi skirts for me are an essential piece in a women wardrobe. You can dress it up with some nice pair of heels or you can dress it down with a pair of flats. Also what I love the most about midi skirts is that you can pair it a wide range of tops and shirts and create different outfits.

JS Edited Melange Mode IMG_1989Now let me tell you about my skirt. I really love the print of my skirt which is a mix of aqua blue circle and brown blends very well together. I sent Mélange Mode my measurements and so this skirt fits me perfectly.  I love the back details, she inserted a small elastic band at the back which gives me room to breathe and I appreciate this.

JS Edited Melange Mode IMG_2132My skirt is high waisted which gives me a very nice silhouette and I intend to get full use out of this gorgeous skirt. I can’t wait to see what else Melange Mode has in store.  One reason we couldn’t wait to work with her is because she caters to every sizes and another plus you can have items custom made according to your measurements.

For this look I went for classy and feminine. I paired my skirt with a high collared off white top and wore my blush coloured pumps. To add a little glam to my look I added a long gold earrings and my 2 gold cuff and now I’m ready to slay!

There are 20 more days left of this horrible period of the year called winter and I could not be more excited. With warmer climes coming soon, I’m eagerly eyeing all things spring/summer and that includes amazing prints and gorgeous jumpsuits.

ND Edited Melange Mode IMG_2309

Let’s come right out of the gate and talk about the perfect length! This, my friends, is what 38” inseam looks like. I am wearing 4” pumps and my shoes are barely making an appearance. And I love it. I also have vacation on my mind, and although my destination has not been finalized, I know that this fab piece will be packed in my suitcase.

ND Edited Melange Mode IMG_2405

The keyhole on the high neck halter jumpsuit adds just the right dose of sexy. I do like a bold statement, so I paired my jumpsuit with the biggest earrings in my arsenal along with some statement bangles.

I’m already dreaming of rocking this baby under the sun. Now I just need to find an actual vacation spot. Any suggestions?

Leslie’s Look

LT Edited Melange Mode IMG_1873

What do you get when you mix a cool print, with some hot colours and a perfect fit? You get a garment that has Leslie’s name written all over it.  This peplum top with the exposed front zipper and gorgeous print was crafted by the talent behind Melnage Mode Yvonne, to give an extra curve to those hips, an extra boost in the caboose and give the look of a small waist and that oh so sought after hourglass shape.

LT Edited Melange Mode IMG_1946

Peplum tops can be tricky for me as a slim girl at the taller end of the height spectrum. More often than not, when the waist fits, the shoulders are not wide enough, the torso is often not long enough so the frilly flounce does not quite start at the right spot and let’s not even talk about the sleeves! (Lord help me please!) But this top made to my exact measurements highlights all my assets to a “T”.

LT Edited Melange Mode IMG_1965

Since I wanted my hot peplum top to own the show, I paired it with a simple grey marl pencil skirt, and some mint green, patent leather stilettos. This top can easily make the leap from work to play and would be a great addition to any woman’s spring wardrobe!

And since I have it in my “spring line up”, you better watch out world, cause here I come, ready to make a splash.

Looks full of sparkle and lace, sequins and shine and a whole lot of fire to heat up your holiday!

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose… It’s that time of year again, when the holiday party invitations start rolling in and we ladies run to our closets to find that special something that will put us in a festive mood.

gt IMG_7013

This gorgeous lace dress from Alloy Apparel’s plus size line hits all the right notes.  With its short sleeves and figure hugging silhouette, it’s perfect for that office Christmas party.  Moreover, the length of this dress is spot on for me given I’m on the short side of the height spectrum.  This lovely lace dress also has a little stretch to it as well so it really does hug ones figure wonderfully.

gt IMG_6940

 

gt IMG_6896

I love the partial open back detail found on the back of the dress so one can show just a bit more skin without being too revealing.  I paired a black moto style jacket with this dress to toughen up the look a bit.  Now I’m ready to sip eggnog and dance the night away!

With the Holiday season fast approaching, trying to find the perfect holiday outfit to hit those parties in style can be daunting for some. Well we’ve joined forces with Alloy Apparel to showcase a few pieces from their holiday collection, that will make everyone believe you are the Obi-Wan Kenobi of holiday fashion finds!

I’m the type of gal that likes to live on a glam high all year long, and this holiday season is no exception.  My look was all about GLAMOUR, lookking FABULOUS and being BOLD! I present to you Cookie Lyons younger sister, Chanel Lyons (for those who watch Empire I know you get me LMAO). While browsing through the Alloy Apparel website I found this lovely sequins champagne wrap dress. The dress is fully lined with a hemline ending just above the knee. The great thing about Alloy is that they cater to all sizes and you can find most items in straight, tall and plus sizes, and you know Fab Four Fashion loves companies that understand that fashion is for all.

js IMG_7259

One thing I must say, I selected my dress size based on the size chart and was surprised to find that when it arrived I had quite a bit of room to spare.  Therefore one can conclude that for this particular item, Alloy is very generous with their sizing. Works for me, cause I’d rather my dress have a little extra room than be too tight. This is an easy fix, the solution, my fave person, my tailor and voila, problem solved. Alternatively, you can always order a size smaller and with the stretchy material you will be fine.  This dress is gorgeous, a total show stopper and will definitely be a hit during the holiday season.  My tall and plus size babes can all dive into this sassy little number too!

js IMG_7400

To complete my Cookie Lyons’ inspired look, LOL, I chose to wear a spotted faux fur leopard print coat which is simply the business and perfect to wear on those cold winter nights. It’s big and its bold and most importantly it’s warm. To finish off my look I paired the dress with my blush patent pumps and long dangly earrings, and of course, my signature red lipstick muah!!!! Here she is the latest cast member of Empire: Cookie’s younger sister CHANEL LYONS!

For the past couple of weeks, all attention has been on what to wear to parties and rocking the best and fiercest freakum dress. Well what about those dinners with friends, or that get together with family that doesn’t need to be too formal? If you need an outfit for those occasions and your mom’s been begging you to put those jeans away, well here is a great alternative.

nd IMG_7669

This is probably coming to you as no surprise, I went with a sequin number! lol These pants are awesome: simple black jeans in the back and sequins in the front! The jeans half have just the right amount of stretch to ensure great comfort while the front says BAM! Here I am! lol The pants come in 32″ and 37″ inseam which is the perfect length for us long legged ladies. The sizing worked perfectly for me, I consulted the size chart and went with the size closest to my measurements. They have a snug fit but don’t dig in – none of that dreaded muffin top here!

nd IMG_7578

Wanting to mix my materials, I paired my pants with Alloy’s Caroline Lace Zip Back Blouse. I wanted my look to be more on the sassy side so underneath my lace top I wore a tube top with a sweetheart neckline. If you prefer more coverage, you can easily wear the top with a camisole. It has an interesting back, boasting an exposed zipper and fly away back detail. This is another piece that will get many wears in many different settings.

Thanks to the good folks at Alloy Apparel, you now have a great option for those informal affairs where you still want to dazzle!

The holiday season is upon us, and I for one have already been making merry at a few holiday shindigs so far! I’ve done the requisite work lunch with the colleagues, the after work dinner with friends (thanks Erum for organizing) and that oh so necessary ugly sweater party (Efua and Chris great party)!  But you always need to have a sexy little number to wear out for that special holiday event. Whether it be that fancy holiday party your significant other invited you to, or heading out to the club for a night out to shake what your mama gave you, you need to have a special piece in your holiday clothing arsenal to fit the bill. This dress, courtesy of Alloy Apparel & Accessories is my not so secret weapon.

LT IMG_6292 re edited

This dress has all the sparkle a girl could ask for without being over the top, with the elegant colour combination of black and gold to lend that air of sophistication. This is a great piece because it is so versatile. Let me tell you how I plan to rock it now, and how I plan to remix it for the future.

So first of all, I’m rocking this dress backwards, yes, backwards. For those of us ladies with a very small bust-line, we often don’t want to wear garments that draws attention to our lack of large “lady lumps”. LOL  As such, wearing this dress with the front, to the back, raises the neckline, while adding a little exposure at the back.

LT IMG_6633

The long slit on the side adds just the right amount of subtle sexiness to the dress to give people a little peep without giving away the whole show, and showing off those long gams. Now for how to keep this dress fresh and new for future events. First, I just know this dress would work fabulously as a mini! After a few wears, I plan to take it on a little trip to the tailor to take the length, up, up, up! For women on the taller side this would be an awesome option for you if the maxi length just doesn’t hit the mark.

LT IMG_6618 re edited

Second wardrobe remix I plan to do with this dress is rock it as a top! A hot leather black pencil skirt would look phenominal withthis dress (a.k.a. top). The lesson here is to think outside the box when it comes to your wardrobe pieces.

One last tip ladies, if you decide this sexy number must come home with you, try going down one size. I’m actually wearing one size smaller than my actual size and it’s just a tiny bit big, but nothing that a tiny nip and tuck won’t fix. Take your measurements, consult the size guide and go one down a size with this one.

Now I’m ready to hit the next holiday bash! I love this time of year and I’m soaking it all in: the fashion, the fun and the festive hum in the air…cause its the most wonderful time of the year!
