Fall for Eshakti Part 2

grp-edited-img_2833

The ladies of Fab Four Fashion are back with part 2 of their ode to eShakti!

grp-edited-img_2825

 

Leslie’s Look

eShakti did  it again!  This bronze coloured tule skirt made my heart go pitter-pat when I saw it.  I immediately began having visions of myself as a bronze goddess dressed top to toe in shades of bronze and a lot of bling!

lt-img_2302

The starting point for this look was this beautiful skirt.  eShakti offers many options when customizing their pieces and I knew I wanted this skirt to hit me just above my ankle for a dramatic effect. But for this skirt, there was no option to make it ankle. Never fear, as usual I had a “Little Leslie Hack” to get around that! When customizing my order, I simply entered my height as 6ft 4in and voila, I had a skirt that hit me just above my ankle.

lt-img_2400

I wanted to rock a tone on tone on tone look, so I decided to add some sparkle with this gorgeous sequin relaxed fit blazer that I belted at the waist and a shiny bronze bodysuit.

lt-img_2305

Since I wanted glam from top to toe, I just had to make sure my feet weren’t forgotten in the mix! I opted to wear these super cute high heeled sandals with multi-coloured pom-poms that are just so fun and flirty (I finally truly understand what that means! lol)

And with that, I was ready for a special evening out on the town or an early holiday party!

For my second eShakti look, I was inspired by curvy actress Christina Hendricks on Mad Men. I saw this dress on eShakti.com and I had to have it. This dress embody secretary femme fatale ready to take over the office LOL and I love it.

js-img_2151

This black and cream plaid dress is formed fitted, ¾ sleeves and knee length and I chose to get it customized and it came out perfectly. Even though there is not much stretch in the material, I don’t feel too snug in the hip area.

js-img_2176

This dress is great for work and boardroom meetings as well as after work happy hour drinks with the girls. All you have to do is accessorise the way you want and it’s a great starting point for a killer outfit.

To complete my Madmen look I paired this dress with my camel coat and wine coloured pumps and clutch.

nd-img_2743

eShakti has me fall ready with this great window pane fit and flare dress. The classic print is what first caught my eye. Although I could have changed the neckline, sleeve type and length, I loved the way that it was shown with the round neck, short sleeves and knee length.

nd-img_2738

nd-img_2491

What I like most about this dress is that it’s a great transitional piece, and it works great for my 9-5. Here I’ve paired it with stockings, booties and a moto jacket, but it would work just as well with a white shirt underneath and some sexy pumps.

nd-img_2781

Plus size babes, eShakti has you covered as you can enter your measurements on the eShakti website and obtain a made to measure dress. You can also pair your dress with this jacket.

Gail’s Look

With this eShakti dress, called Alexandra, I was going for some vintage glamour.  I really like the mix of the two textures that make up the dress.  The fitted bodice is a cotton/spandex jersey knit while the skirt consists of two layers of sheer tulle plus a black lining for extra coverage.

gt-edited-img_2509

 

gt-edited-img_2627

The original style of the dress had a split notch neckline but I chose to switch things up a bit by going for a deep v.  In fact, with this particular dress there are 16 additional necklines, 7 sleeve types and 6 different skirt lengths to choose from so the possibilities are endless!

gt-edited-img_2617

So, to up the glamour quotient further, I added this gray wrap style coat with a blinged out broach.  I completed my look by adding sparkly yet delicate earrings and silver pumps.

Ziza Boutique

We are always impressed when women go for their dreams and this is exactly what Fike Ayeni did with Ziza Boutique. She saw that there was a need for individuality and diversity in the fashion landscape and she decided to do something about it. We are so glad she did!! She goes to the ends of the world (literally) to provide her customers with beautiful garments. Do yourself a favor: sit back, relax and enjoy the greatness that is Ziza Boutique.

Judy’s Look

JS IMG_5595

Another gem found when Fab Four Fashion discovered the online boutique Shop Ziza, and we were ecstatic when  we realized that Shop Ziza catered to straight, plus and tall sizes.

While driving on the way to meet Fike, the owner of Ziza boutique,  I didn’t know what to expect.  I immediately felt relaxed and at ease when we  were greeted   by the  gorgeous and stylish owner Fike. The boutique is located in the basement of her beautifully welcoming home and is all at once chic, inviting and sets the stage for a truly wonderful shopping experience.

JS IMG_5608

What’s so special about this in-house boutique is that each piece is unique, and that she only orders a few sizes in each piece.  Limiting the orders, minimizes the chance of running into someone wearing the same outfit as you.

JS IMG_5592

I felt like a kid in a candy store when I entered the boutique, perusing through all the clothing on the floor, and the additional hidden gems in the back room. This boutique boasts a wide variety of both straight and plus size pieces. I was fortunate enough to find several pieces that caught my eye, however, my heart was captured by this gorgeous short sleeve dress. Very different from what I usually gravitate toward. I love the light blue color with the combination of the floral pattern. This dress reminds me of Haute Couture Gucci runway. It’s very feminine, classy and bold all at the same time.

JS IMG_5624

To complete my look, I paired my dress with blush pumps and accessorized with silver bracelets and earrings.

Fike told us that she regularly travels to Europe to visit different merchants and bring back pieces that she thinks her customers will appreciate. Well I’m quite happy with exclusivity, and in my new dress I’m certainly ready to rip the runway of the main streets of Toronto.

Nancy’s Look

Finding a new place to shop is always great. Finding a new place to shop which offers unique pieces is amazing. Finding a new place to shop that offers great pieces in all sizes is the best! If you’re as excited as I am, you need to check out Ziza Boutique.

ND IMG_5894

Have you ever been to an event only to find someone else wearing the same [insert piece of clothing] as you? Annoying right? Well when you shop at Ziza, the chances of that happening are slim to none. Shop Ziza came into existence for that very reason and being unique is its’ raison d’être.

ND IMG_5961 (1)

When we stumbled on the IG page, we were immediately impressed with their offerings. Going to the boutique was even more impressive. Owner Fike Ayeni clearly has a great eye for fashion and curates pieces that will speak to the sophisticated women’s sensibilities.

She even thought about us long legged babes! Her Tall section is actually tall and the offer some great options – in both straight and plus sizes.

ND IMG_6042

This dress was one of the many pieces that caught my attention. This satin dress has such a regal feel! I immediately pictured myself wearing it with goddess braid, big gold earrings and red lips while relaxing on the hilly coast of Santorini.  Gotta say, I’m quite pleased with the result of my vision, now I just need one of you to hook me up with a plane ticket! LOL

I further accentuated my waist with a thin gold belt and wore mustard pumps to have my must-have pop of color.

Stylish, unique and absolutely divine are apt descriptions of this fabulous dress I discovered from Ziza Boutique. Print perfection, subtly sexy and boldly beautiful, this dress combines all the elements I love in my clothing: cool print, funky details and a little dash of sexy!;-)

LT IMG_6416

But for me, Ziza Boutique was as much about the clothing as it was about the shopping experience. Picture it, a beautiful, relaxed setting, in which you have access to unique clothing and accessories, painstakingly selected by the owner, who has created a boutique experience that will leave you excited about the pieces, thrilled with the variety of sizes, and the assistance of the owner who has an amazing instinct for what will look perfect on your body type and shape! She was amazing!

LT IMG_6388

As I mentioned earlier, this girl does love herself some print, as they give me the look of that extra volume that I know you all know I’m always on the hunt for…AND with the fire engine red belt to accentuate my waist, my hourglass shape is amplified! The style of the dress is so simple, yet the added details of the volume in the sleeve, small key-hole opening at the neck and bold print all come together to make it a show stopper.

LT IMG_6374

Styling this dress could never be simpler. All I added was funky earrings, and a stand-out cuff (which is actually 2 cuffs stacked together). I kept the shoes neutral so as not to have them competing with the dress and I was ready for my close up, and ready to hit the town!

Gorgeous does not begin to describe this beaded gown.  This form fitting dress hits me in all the right places-accentuating my curves beautifully.   As one moves closer to the bottom of the dress it flares out prettily so there’s a wonderful “swoosh” when I walk so I feel like the belle at the ball!

GT IMG_5810

The details at the top of the dress is equally beautiful.  The red and clear beads sown in at the neck make this dress nothing short of Oscar worthy!

GT IMG_5678

To complete my look I added simple silver studded earrings, blush coloured pumps and simple silver bracelets.  With that I’m ready to dance the night away.

Going To The Chapel…

grp IMG_1052

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

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

Old Navy

GRP IMG_8094

Chic and affordable go hand in hand when describing Old Navy, and the ladies of Fab Four Fashion just love when retailers offer styles for ALL shapes and sizes.  Join us as we show you how we’ve remixed Old Navy pieces to fit our style profiles!
GRP IMG_8073

Judy’s LookJS IMG_8521

Old Navy is a store filled with hidden treasures. When I look at their window displays, I’m never quite sure they’ll have something for me, but as soon as I step inside I always find one or two pieces just waiting for me to grab lol .
JS IMG_8472

A few months ago I went there looking for sweat pants.  Well imagine my surprise, when I saw this fantastic dark blue and beige printed coat; my jaw dropped I couldn’t believe it. I grabbed it up immediately and tried it on on the spot.  Then I proceeded to the cash register and the sales associate informed me that this new coat was on sale for $29. Can I get an Amen for this awesome price! (you know that this sister loves a good sale!LOL)
JS IMG_8550

I love the fact that this coat is so versatile and that I can create multiple looks with it.  Another plus is that the jacket comes from XS to XXL, so all my sisters can benefit!

For this look I went for a professional and tailored feel.  I wore a dressy white shirt with a black tie, and a simple black leather pencil skirt because I wanted the emphasis to be on the jacket. To complete my look, I wore dark red wine coloured suede pumps and added a dark red wine coloured clutch. Lastly, to bring an extra touch of pizazz to my coat, because I’m fancy like that, I added a fur collar.

Spring is finally here ladies, and while I’m not one to adhere to the old adage of wearing white only between the prescribed period of Easter and Labour Day, I gotta admit, I do relish whipping out an all-white outfit, not just for an all white party (I do love a good fete though), but just for a day, or night out with my besties!

LT IMG_8652

We love when we can find retailers that cater to women of all sizes, and we cannot forget the affordable choices. I love to rock a high-low outfit, where I pair a more expensive piece with a piece at a lower price point and Old Navy offers some amazing affordable options.

LT IMG_8777

I wanted a look that said effortless cool and this outfit says that to me. I love this sweater which adds some texture to the look. I wanted it to have an oversized feel to it, so I took an “XL” and slouched it over one shoulder. Then I slid into these skinny jeans and threw on a printed blazer to add a little print to the look.

LT IMG_8620

To accessorize my look, I added a gold belt, gold earrings and bangles, and these gorgeous gold sandals that I simply adore.

So hears to Old Navy, keeping stylish looks affordable and fun for women of all body types.

I love this particular look.  It’s easy breezy and super comfortable while still looking pulled together.

The starting point for creating this look were these printed drawstring pants.  I love the print and cut of these pants and of course they’re incredibly comfortable.

To keep cool spring breezes at bay, while out and about, I added this denim jacket.  I rolled up the sleeves just to “juge” the look a little bit. LOLGT IMG_8434

For a pop of colour I added these faux suede yellow heels from ASOS that are beyond comfy.  I’m now ready to take on some serious shopping!GT IMG_8425

Old Navy is one of those brands that can always surprise you. They have the foundational piece game down pack but every now and then, they will have the perfectly printed romper or pants that you just have to have.

ND IMG_8266Also, I love that they are incorporating pieces for the petite, plus and tall women. I dream of the day where this will be a norm for every single retailer, but until then, I will cherish the ones that do!

ND IMG_8277

With all this said, this look is centered around these cool joggers which I got from the men’s department! And I love ’em! I already know that I will dress them up and down to my heart’s content!

For this look, I kept it casual cute with a simple tank top, biker jacket and high heels for my daily dose of a colourful pop.

Jeans Anyone?

Gr - IMG_2330

Gr - IMG_2281

Jeans…denim… dungarees! A fashion trend that has spanned the globe and continues to be a favorite among young and old alike!  Invented over 100 years ago, jeans are that one fashion item that has run the gamut from being synonymous with the poor working class to a symbol of wealth and affluence solely based on the name on the label.  Talk about a fashion renaissance!  I know many women can have a love/hate relationship with jeans, but the secret is to not stop looking until you’ve unearthed the perfect pair. Don’t settle for anything else. They don’t need to be expensive; they just need to show off your heavenly curves! Check out what the ladies of Fab Four have on the jeans menu for you!

Gr - IMG_2341

Judy’s Look

Oohh chile, God knows I have been searching for a good pair of jeans that can fit my curvy body for the longest time. There are a few criteria that I look for in a good pair of jeans:

  • I like my jeans to have stretch. I want to be able to move and be comfortable in my jeans and I hate when I feel a pinch at the waist because the they is not stretchy enough.
  • I’m a sucker for skinny jeans, so I want pair of jeans that is either low rise or mid-rise and when I sit down I don’t want to have plumber crack LOL.  Raise your hand if you had this happen to you in the past LOL –  I’ve  definitely been guilty of this over the years.

J - IMG_2455

Well the search for me is over yay yay. I found 2 great pairs of jeans that meet all my requirements. I discovered this brand called Second Yoga Skin jeans and let me tell you that they are every curvy girls’ dream. Their price range varies from $90 to $160, and you can easily find them at Jean Machines.

J - IMG_2452

The second pair I found, which is the pair I’m rocking on the pictures, is from Old Navy. It’s called the Women’s Sweetheart Skinny jeans in long. They are regular price $39.50 but I got them on sales for $27! They fit me perfectly and I love that they come in short, regular and long. I always go for long cause I love wearing a nice pair of skinny jeans with heels.

J - IMG_2475

To top my look, I wore a sleeveless peplum top – I think that peplum tops are a great combination with skinny jeans especially for curvy girls like me. To further elevate my jeans look, I wore my salmon peep toe sandals and I added my favorite necklace.

Leslie’s Look

My all time favourite thing to wear? Simple; jeans and a tee baby! My love affair with dungarees began at a young age and I’ve been ever faithful to this seemingly timeless fashion trend. Baggy, skinny, synched, bell bottomy (is that a word), I think I’ve worn them all over the years and continue to build my collection!

L - IMG_2836

These skinny jeans by True Religion are my favorite pair right now! They have been broken in and feel like they are bespoke…customized just for my willowy frame! The distressed detail, which I gotta admit  took me a little time to get jiggy with, is now one of the things I like most about them!

L - IMG_2931

The flap pocket is perfectly placed to give the illusion that I’m packing a little more heat (i.e. junk in the trunk LOL) and the wash and skinny leg style let me easily transition this look from day time hang out gear to night time party wear! All I had to do with this look was take a simple white t-shirt and jeans and add a couple upgrades.

L - IMG_2861

Speaking of upgrades…this gorgeous cape blazer, of course reminiscent of Solnage’s   wedding outfit is the piece de resistance for this look. After this cape-jacket I didn’t even need shoes cause no one would have noticed!LOL But since I can’t go barefooted, I chose to finish the look with mint green pumps and a silver clutch. And of course, my sassy shades! Note to my tall girls on True Religion jeans. While I do love them, they are not always faithful to the tall girls! I sometimes have difficulty finding a pair that fit me in both waist and length. I had to go through a lot of frogs before I found my princely pair! But it was well worth the search! See ladies, we can all find our Prince, well, at least in jeans!:-)

I love dresses and skirts like the next girl, but in my heart, just like my girl Leslie, I’m all about jeans and a tee! In fact, 9 out of 10 times that you see me running through the 6, I do so wearing some variation of jeans. I dig a good pair of boyfriend jeans, love my trouser jeans, but can never part from the skinny. They easily go from casual Friday to drinks with the girls, and you already know how I feel about multi purposed clothes!

N - IMG_2651

Now, we tall ladies KNOW that the quest for the perfect pair that is LONG enough is NOT an easy feat! Over the years, I’ve struck luck with brands like Levi’s, J. Crew, Old Navy and Alloy Apparel to name a few. Here, I’m rocking my very first pair of jeans from Topshop and I must say that I’m quite pleased!

N - IMG_2674

With a 36” inseams, gone are the days where I have to pretend that my jeans were supposed to be “cropped” LOL. These also have the right amount of stretch: enough that I do not have the dreaded gap at the waist (my booty endowed ladies will understand!!) and not too tight that said booty will get squished.

N - IMG_2583

This color loving chica swapped her rainbow for an all-black-everything look because, well, why not! I kept my look simple with a bandeau top, leather jacket (which got ditched as it got surprisingly hot!) and strappy sandals. Well, ok, I snuck some color in with the purse LOL I can’t help it!! I love to offset my almost all black looks with metallic accessories, and here, I did so with silver earrings, bracelet and this glorious necklace.

Jeans are that quintessential item in a women’s closet that are just a “no-brainer”.  With the variety of styles and washes available, jeans can go from dressed up chic to casual unique in a flash.  It all depends on how you want to rock them.   Moreover, their versatility works for all four seasons.

G - IMG_2983

I decided to on a lighter wash as my look was on the boho casual tip.  For those plus size ladies who are hesistant in trying a pair of skinny jeans why not try a pair in a darker wash?  This is not about hiding your body, merely playing with a trend on your terms.

G - IMG_2980

I paired my light coloured jeans with a white bodysuit and floral kimono.

G - IMG_3062

As I’m sure you all know, kimonos are one of the hot items for summer.  They offer coverage for upper arm for those cool summer evenings.

I polished off my look with a taupe and peachy/gray leather hobo purse and taupe sandals.
