You’ve got a date with the cutie you’ve been crushin on….but what to wear?  The no brainer option is a killer little black dress aka LBD.

The dress is guaranteed to turn your crush’s head.  I picked up this beauty up at SexyPlus Clothing (fitting name isn’t it wink wink).  Owner, Stefanie Augusteijn  outfitted her boutique with great selections from casual pieces like jeans and flowy maxi dresses to drop dead gorgeous stunners like this fitted retro style black dress.

The dress features these ultra-sexy adjustable “harness” style straps that flow from a sweet heart neckline.  The material is sturdy but has loads of stretch so it accentuates my curves beautifully and I’m still comfy as I strike a pose. LOL  I added a belt to further accentuate my waist.

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!

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!

This summer season got me super excited for colorful outfits and off the shoulder tops, just like this super cute one with a printed palm tree design.  What I love most about this top is that it’s made out of a stretchy material, so when I move my arms around I don’t feel like I’m in a straightjacket!LOL

JS Edited IMG_0246

This outfit wouldn’t be complete without this purple midi skirt that I inherited from my mommy. The skirt and top together are the perfect combination of feminine and flirty, especially when I’m walking around and there is a breath of wind and it catches my top just so (oh yeah baby I be feeling myself:). I’ve been seeing a lot of different styles of off the shoulder tops in stores and online, and I hope this trend is here to stay for this season and the next!

The other important element of this outfit is my latest shoe purchase. I bought my first pair of Chinese Laundry sandals and so far I’m pretty impressed. They are quite colorful. I love the thin braided pink strap that goes across my foot, and the back of the sandal and heel are made out of several colors. In order to keep my feet from sliding forward, I wore one of my trusty insoles and I’m good money.

This season, the name of the game is to stay and look cool. I managed to do that with the cutest top. I actually was exiting the store when I saw it out of the corner of my eye and just snatched it up. Didn’t even try it on. I grabbed it and ran (to the cash, not out of the store.. lol).

ND IMG_0767

I have come to the realization that I have a short torso – yes, my height consists of 90% legs LOL. With that realization, I have come to enjoy tops that I would have previously assumed would be too short for me. This is one of them. I love the eye catching print and the fit is spot on.

ND IMG_0760

The top has adjustable straps to ensure the best fit. It has a cool exposed zipper and despite the fact that it is very fitted at the body, there is enough room at the bust such that my boobs weren’t squashed. It has a sweet sweetheart neckline and is peplum. I wanted to further accentuate my waist so I added a gold belt.

Wanting my top to play center stage, I kept the rest of my fit simple with this fitted midi pencil skirt and some strappy heels.

It would not be summer without a little glamour, so I decided to put a little funkiness into my summer wardrobe. The focus of this outfit, if you haven’t figured it out, is the vest!

LT Edited IMG_0591

This vest absolutely took my breath away when I first laid eyes on it. The colour, style and cool “architecture” of this vest is the type of thing I always look for in my clothing.

It’s that perfect piece for me, as it makes me look more curvy (i.e. fills me out a little:-) and it speaks to that edginess I like to incorporate into my looks.

LT Edited IMG_0415

I wanted the vest to be the focus of my look, but the close runner up are these gorgeous shoes I scooped up at Nine West. I don’t go into this store often enough, but these shoes have convinced me to put Nine West on my regular scouting rotation!LOL Print, colour, and a high heel? Oh, I was in love!

To complete my look, I jumped into this bright white, split front skirt, and threw on my bedazzling jewelry and I was good to go.

As I mentioned earlier, this bodysuit has flutter sleeves so warm summer breezes rustle them and I just love that. The bodysuit is made of viscose and elastance so it has a soft jersey feel against the skin.

I paired the bodysuit with this equally gorgeous horizontal stripe skirt from Eloquii.  I’ve sung the praises of Eloquii many times and I will continue to do so.  They just design beautiful contemporary plus size clothing and even better, they always have a great sale coming up so you can scoop up that certain item you’ve been eyeing at a discount!  This skirt is made of a polyester – spandex mix so it hugs my curves beautifully!

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

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.

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

I also really like the midi length of the dress as well.  I find that length is a great balance to the skin I’m showing on top.

With a body conscious dress like this, shapewear is a curvy & plus size woman’s best friend as they work to smooth a few of the lumps and bumps out.

I  was first introduce to Rebdolls by fellow fab four fashion member Gail who owns several pieces from them. I’m always impressed with the fabulous pieces she gets from Rebdolls. When we approached them and they agreed to work with us, I was so excited to finally get the chance to own one of their pieces.  There was so many pieces to choose from their website, but my heart settle for this form fitted caged bodycon dress.

js IMG_9981

I choose this dress first because I don’t own any clothes in the wine color family and colors such as Oxblood, red wine are very in this year. This was a great introduction to this color theme and I was  here for this.

js IMG_0097

I can never get enough of midi length form fitted bodycon, it’s a garments that can remix with so many shoes and accessories. Bodycon are so   practical, especially when you don’t know what to wear to go out don’t want to be bothered. All you have to  do is slip on this sexy number accessorize it up and put on your heels and you are good to go.

js IMG_0109

What I love about Rebdolls is that they understand what Fab Four Fashion stands for fashion for all, and its one stop shop. You will find items from size XL to 4X which alloys regular and plus sizes women to wear the same items. Since it was my first time ordering from them, I read the size chart and according to it, i took 1X. However I noticed that Rebdolls clothing has a great amount of stretch, so I could have taken a size smaller and feel comfortable in the dress. Oh well ill know for next time, because there is a couple of pieces that I’m eying hard and I need them in my life LOL. One thing very Important that I can’t live without when I wear a bodycon is the right under garment also known as spanx LOL, not to worry I will do a post about it very soon.

js IMG_0112

To complete my look I had a vision to pair this dress with my nice fur collar wine color which works perfectly with the dress. I simply added a pair of long gold earrings which for me is rare because if you notice I mostly wear small earrings. I must I’m loving the long earrings and will definitively add more to my accessories collections. I’m slowly venturing into new territories and I’m loving it. To finish I wore my cage black sandals with gold and silver studs.

nd IMG_0679

I must start by admitting that I did not know Rebdolls. I found out about the brand when Fab Four Fashion’s own Gail rocked an amazing crop top from the brand.  Then, I made the mistake of assuming that the brand provided plus size offerings only. I was delighted to find out that they offer clothing from sizes 0 to 28! Oh how I love it when retailers do that! Kudos for recognizing ALL the amazing bodies out there. Now Rebdolls, if you added some tall offerings, I will love you even more! 😉

nd IMG_0482

Tall girls, I know that you just read that there are no tall offerings, but please don’t close the book just yet! I am wearing a midi that is just the right length! This dress is definitely a good fall staple that can be worn in a myriad of ways: rock it with a vest with lace up sandals or dress it down with some cute kicks. I decided to wear it with a fur stole; fox to be exact, because I was feeling foxy! LOL

nd IMG_0704

It has a tight fit that accentuates all my curves!! As always, consulting the size chart is a must to determine what size to obtain perfect fit. Because black is always  so chic, I chose the darkest hue; however, my dress also comes in oxblood and olive. Whatever color you chose to go with, just add a healthy dose of gold baubles and you’ll be good to go!

Paired perfection…the nature of coordinates.  Two separate pieces, one fab look that will take you to the head of the class, and Rebdolls finishes summa cum laude  in this style category!

This outfit is easy breezy sassy and I love it. The name of the game was effortless style. The striking colour  and sexy exposed mid-drift were all elements that drew me to this look.  I love when an outfit has that perfect trifecta of form, fit and FIYAH and this outfit is no exception!

lt IMG_9928

The material is light weight so, despite the long sleeves, you can wear it even when the temperatures finally begin to rise again. Also, the midi length of the skirt balances out the va-va-voom of the exposed mid-drift which is perfect since I prefer to leave a little to the imagination (well sometimes!LOL)

I decided to keep my look very simple, opting to where it simply with a little print and a dash of pizzazz!  The print came in the form  of these high heeled leopard print pumps which add some visual interest while the pizzazz came in the form of my funky oversized earrings. And just like that I’m all “Redolled” up and ready to go!

It’s so hard to say goodbye to summer days (if you’re like me, you sang these words to Boy’s II Men’s song… LOL).  While I will miss the gorgeous weather, I’m really looking forward to rocking everything fall fashion.  This season has the best colors and structured pieces – oh how I love structured pieces.

Blog IMG_7567 Edited Nancy

 

Designers have had us salivating over fall trends since their presentation of their autumn/winter 2015 clothing lines this past spring. While some of these “trends” are really classics, it’s always cool to see how they’re re-interpreted them for the current season. For me, that’s the case with brocade.  We saw it with designers like Mary Katrantzou, the queen of prints; Simone Rocha and Givenchy.

IMG_7752 Edited Nancy

I purchased these pants many moons ago and love wearing them around this time of the year. I just loved the print on these cropped pants (for the record, these were actually are cropped and not just too short by default #tallgirldisclaimer lol). Black and gold will forever have an elegant feel to me.

IMG_7616 Edited Nancy

I paired my brocade pants with a crisp white shirt and some black booties. Since we know that it gets a little bit breezy this time of year, I had to add my leather bomber jacket. I really love the whole marriage of colours in this outfit and I felt that the jacket spiced up the look a bit.  And just like that, the fast approaching cooler temperature is a little less daunting.

Falling into cooler climes is not my idea of a good time. I just can’t get excited about cool breezes that rob your breath, chilly walks to the office and the thought of not being able to enjoy a sip of sangria on a terrace under the blazing sun at 8PM. BUT, I can totally  get down with the fall fashions that we get to rock when the mercury falls!

I must admit that I’ve been excited about fall fashions since I saw some of the trends that were hot for the season during fashion week this past spring and here is one of the looks I could not wait to don this season.

IMG_6421 Edited LT

Tie-neck blouses or sweaters were not something that I would typically wear. I usually verre toward funky and this is a more conservative style for me. However, when paired with this leopard print dress, the funk factor is noticeably multiplied as is the retro “sexy secretary” feel.

IMG_6640 Edited LT

To highlight my small waist (and lend a little more curve to my slim silhouette), I added this slim patent-leather belt to this ensemble. I have a long torso, so I like to wear my belts a little higher than my waist-line to make my legs look even longer than they already are!

IMG_6410 Edited LT

Now, to keep with the retro feel this outfit gives off, I went with these gorgeous burgundy platform pumps reminiscent of YSL and oh-la-la Dominique Deveaux is now in the building and ready to create her “dynasty”!

My first fall lookbook outfit is inspired by menswear. Oh yay! I love a nice tall man that can kill-it in the style category, and many menswear pieces can transition well into women’s fashion. I often see women wearing nice menswear inspired suits that are tailored to their curvier frames. One item that I particularly love in menswear is a tie, which is always the first thing I look for when I see a man wearing a suit.

As a child, my dad always asked me to help him adjust his tie (aww, fond family memories). I also remember having a little red leather tie as a child LOL. So, I guess it’s no real surprise that for this look I decided to go for a “comme les garcons” type of style which is a departure from the very feminine and sexy looks I’m often drawn to. I wore a printed yellow, blue, black and white cardigan, with this fabulous white shirt that I found with a built-in tie. I must say I was relieved to find this shirt because it fit the vision I had for this look perfectly. Also let me be honest, for a second, I really didn’t see myself being able to tie a tie LOL.

I scored this shirt while browsing through Forever 21 in the plus size section. I love that it’s not tight across my chest and not too big in the mid section. Another thing I like is that the shirt does not gape in the front across my boobs and I feel very comfortable in it. Trust me when I say the struggle is real to find a proper white shirt that fits my body.

To complete my look I wore my leather-look shorts to give me a cool, edgy feel. I had a vision of wearing a necklace under my tie and having it look as though it’s also built into the shirt. I must say, I love how my vision came to life. It just takes my outfit to another level. The last piece is my wonderful black patent oxford shoes which I scored at Forever 21 a few months ago, and surprisingly they are extremely comfortable and they don’t make my feet look big, which is always a plus.

Gail’s Look

Ah, the fresh cool fall breezes will soon be upon us.  I’ve always felt that come September it was time to re-jig my clothing wardrobe – particularly my work clothes so as to incorporate new items so I can refresh my look.  For me the month of September will always feel like back to school even though I’ve been out of school for some time.  I fondly remember that my sister and I made our Mother a little nuts when we INSISTED that we had to have a fresh new outfit for the first day of school!! Ah our poor long suffering Mommy! LOL

Ever since Pantone dubbed Marsala (aka wine red if you ask me LOL) as the “it colour” for 2015 I’ve been seeing it every where and I admit that I jumped on the bandwagon too…it really is a gorgeous colour.

These twill skinny Marsala coloured pants are fabulous.  These pants have some stretch to them so they’re very comfortable.  The cut and fit are really amazing and they hug me in all the right places and there isn’t that horrible gaping at the waist which is the usual problem I have with pants.

I paired these pants with a printed tie-neck blouse, another hot look this season.  I’ve had this blouse for forever and I reach for it often.  It always pays to have great wardrobe staples you can reach for season after season.

That is also the case for this pink duster.  Again, I’ve had it forever and have featured it in another post seen here on the blog.

To complete my look I wore nude coloured pumps, pearl earrings and my baby, my LV Trevi satchel.  I’m now ready for my first board meeting of the day!
