The Fab Four

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

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

Gail’s Look

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

Sumissura Blazer Edition

Group Edited Sumissura IMG_0428

We have covered pants, and shirts, but blazers are also a wardrobe staple that every woman should own. When perfectly tailored, this single garment can have you covered for a multitude of settings. However, those longer arms or that larger bust can make finding that perfectly tailored blazer mission impossible. Wouldn’t it be neat if you could just go to one place and find a blazer with an awesome fit that comes in a myriad of colors and customizable details? Well search no longer, Sumissura to the rescue!

Group Edited Sumissura IMG_0351

Nancy’s Blazer

ND Edited Sumissura IMG_1059

Blazers are such a must have but finding the perfect one is a PAIN! That is why Sumissura is such a life saver. You get a quality garment which fits well at an affordable price. Plus, the options are truly endless so everyone is sure to find something that tickles their fancy.

ND Edited Sumissura IMG_1110

As mentioned in our Sumissura shirt review, using their website is really easy. The system prompts you to enter your measurements, even showing a picture of how to adequately take those measurements. By inputting your height and weight, the software provides “suggested measurements” and if you enter a measurement that seems off, you get an error message.

Needless to say that my blazer fits perfectly and yes tall girls, this means that the sleeves are LONG! Let us take a moment of silence for long sleeves that are actually long! What a noble concept!

ND Edited Sumissura IMG_1178

I decided to go with a peak lapel, double breasted four button blazer. I wanted  a nice jewel color so I decided to go with an emerald green (“Robin Hood” on sumissura.com). So while I was thrilled to see this rich color, my husband noted that it looked like I had won the Masters (google PGA green jacket… LOL) So while I was glad that I looked like a winner, I had to style it so that I could shake off the golf reference.

I paired my blazer with a fun two toned pleated skirt. I accessorized my look with simple gold accessories and had to steal one of my hubby’s pocket squares. I added a fun pom pom button and finished my look with some striped pumps.

Leslie’s Blazer

The watch words for my look were fit, flare, fashionable geek chic! Sumissura has hit another home run for me when it comes to providing a fashionable look, with a fit that speaks of quality bespoke tailoring.  No need for the big “post purchase production” of lengthening sleeves and taking in waistlines for us slim girls! (Let’s have a momentary pause for a happy dance!)

PM-LT Edited Sumissura IMG_0696

True to form with Sumissura, I had the opportunity to jump into the designers seat and style my jacket to my personalized specifications, taking into account everything from the fit (i.e. straight cut or slim fit); the length of the jacket, whether I wanted it double or single breasted, one button or two, the style of the collar and on and on and on! My favourite part was selecting the  material and print! I knew I had landed on a winner when I came across this beautiful print reminiscent of classic British tweeds and plaids.

LT Edited Sumissura IMG_0518

I wanted my look to have a neutral   base with some punches of color to add a little pizzazz. Since I simply love blues I selected this blue striped shirt to add that pop of colour, along with some blue in my pocket square and these black and blue striped shoes!

LT Edited Sumissura IMG_0658

A girls always got to have something to hold her bits and bobs, so I opted to carry them all in this gorgeous Mulberry Bayswater bag.

So start your engines ladies and gents and get your made to measure, customized blazer. Say “buh-bye” to too short sleeves, too big bust-lines or too narrow shoulders. Jump into the driver’s seat and create your own stylish blazer!

I fell in love with my Sumissura shirt seen here so I was definitely game for testing out their made to measure service for selecting a blazer!  Once again, the process was as easy as pie.

Sumissura has a great selection of materials available for you to choose from.  I went with a short berry coloured velvet blazer with cut away hem in the front.  I was even able to choose the interior lining for my jacket as well.  Since I had saved my measurements when I had my blue check shirt made, I merely re-selected those numbers and I was good to go.

GT Edited Sumissura IMG_1292

Once again, the shipping was lightening quick!  In about a week I was able to slip into my tailor made jacket and the fit was on point!

We all know that blazers are definitely a wardrobe staple but often times it’s so difficult to find an affordable one off the rack that fits perfectly or as close to perfect as possible.  That’s what’s so wonderful with Sumissura’s service. They allow you to have a custom made blazer at an affordable price!  I call that a win – win situation!

GT Sumissura Edited IMG_1350

I completed my look by pairing my ever so chic jacket with a white pencil skirt and leopard print slingbacks.  Now I’m off to slay and conqueror! lol

Well it’s not surprising that we are collaborating again with Sumissura. We had such a great experience working with them the first time that we just had to do it all over again. This time around we are featuring their fabulous Blazers.

For this collaboration I chose a black velvet blazer. You may probably be wondering why velvet? Well, I had a vision of glam and a bit of Janelle Monae. I have to admit I’m not typically the biggest fan of velvet, however when a velvet fashion garment is rocked well, I’m here for it.

Judy Edited Sumissura IMG_0767

Again, I cannot stress enough how easy the Sumissura website is to navigate. You can select everything from the material to be used, to the shape, fit and detailing of your blazer.  And the great thing with their website is that when you register and enter your measurements the first time you place an order, their system automatically saves it for the next time you visit the site! How awesome is that!

JS Edited Sumissura IMG_0867

 

For this look I went with a simple black and white colour palette. I elected to wear my blazer with no shirt underneath and a big statement necklace to bring life to my outfit. To complete my look I wore my 3/4 black and white gingham print pants which I wore last year for the Autumn Prints Post. To add a little bit of pizzazz to my outfit I wore my Ivanka trump dark wine suede pumps and a nice beaded velvet clutch.

The holiday season is upon us, and just between you and me, I’m OBSESSED with all things Christmas! I just love it; feels like there’s magic in the air! It is my favourite holiday of the year. The music, the movies, the reruns of cute cartoons on tv, I just eat it all up! But, though we all know that gift giving should not be the aim of the holiday season, it inevitably becomes a big focus. So, to help you with your holiday shopping (if you’re anything like me and still  haven’t even purchased a birthday gift for your sister who’s birthday passed about a week ago, week ago), to borrow from Oprah, here are some of “Leslie’s Favourite Things”!

Final note; I am all about efficiency! One stop shopping is so great when you can make it happen and Hudson’s Bay can make it happen for you! No, I don’t work for Hudson’s Bay, no they are not sponsoring this post, I just genuinely love going there, especially at this time of year when time is of the essence! LOL
