Summer in the City

Summer is not only about shorts, tanks and bikinis. It’s also a great time to break out a cute summer dress or some spectacular prints and cool fabrics. The ladies of Fab Four Fashion took the plunge into summer fashion fun and are dressing up the way they do best!

I love wearing summer dresses when the mercury rises above that 25 degree mark. They are the perfect  piece to where to allow the warm summer breezes to help cool you down on a hot day, and give you some breathability.

This African print dress is one of my favourites to pull on on a hot day. The cotton material allows me to stay cool, and the flared skirt gives me maximum movement. I love this style of dress as it gives me a beautiful silhouette and gives us women the freedom of wearing any style of undergarments we like. If you want to wear something to prevent the dreaded thigh chaffing, this is a perfect piece!

Accessorising this look was a synch. You  have the option of dressing it up or down depending on your mood! I wanted to dress it up a bit so I went for bold jewelry and high heeled pumps. Yet another advantage of this dress and the beautiful print, one has the option of wearing many different styles and colour of shoes.

And with that, I’m going to hit a rooftop party with the crew!

I love maxi dresses, and this one from eShakti fits me to a “T”.  We’ve talked about how much we love this awesome retailer in the past as their clothing is completely customizable so you’re sure to find something in a size “you”!  No one has been left out at eShakti!GT Edited IMG_4074

For me, summer isn’t summer without an easy breezy maxi (see how I made that rhyme LOL).  I love the chevron pattern on this cotton dress and the fact that it has pockets!!!!!!  I added a simple black belt to highlight my waist.GT Edited IMG_4030

To complete my look I added silver wedges, dangly earrings and aviators because the future is so bright, I gotta wear shades!GT Edited IMG_3888

Summer is the time to bust out the lovely colors in your wardrobe, and to be more fashionably bold with your style, without having to wear a winter coat.  Let me talk to you about a cute summery look that can take me to brunch and transition well into an after work social networking event.

For one thing, I’m always attracted to bright colors, they tend to uplift my spirit and brighten up my days LOL. If you know me by now, you know that I love wearing outfits that can transition from day to night.  For this look I went for bright and light with a touch of pop art.

I wore this nice fitted yellow skirt that I got on sale a few weeks ago thru Eloquii.  Little confession though, in order to get the skirt fitted to my body, I had to get a size down. The skirt is the perfect, mid-length that comes in a scuba material which fits nicely.

I scored this yellow, pink, and blue printed top for $6 at old navy yay.  For that price I couldn’t leave it behind. The perfect summer coat for me is a cool jean jacket which can be thrown on over a summer dress, or rocked with a jumper and you are good to go. I was always on the lookout for the perfect jean jacket, and couldn’t find it until I went to Old Navy and found this one in a light blue denim. This jacket is the business! I love the light blue color and that it’s a bit stretchy so that I can actually wear a sweater underneath and not feel constricted.  Trust me, it’s the worst feeling being virtually trap in your clothes LOL.

To add a dash of pop art to my outfit I wore my white frame sunglasses, a silver cubed necklace, my famous Kashmir clutch frame with the incomparable Grace Jones and a pair of blush pumps, and I’m ready to brighten your day while I take over the 6ix.

On any given day, you will catch me in jeans or in a jumpsuit; but every now and then, I like to break out a sweet and girly dress. This dress hits the mark on all accounts. In a not so distant past, you would never catch me wearing florals… Yet, just in the past couple of months, I’ve worn florals over, over and over again. Go figure!

This dress is just adorable. It screams easy, breezy and beautiful. The material is lightweight and makes it the perfect piece on a hot summer day. The top part has suttle stiches which does wonders for our figure. It has a nice adjustable cross back along with a sweetheart neckline. To make this dress even more perfect, it has pockets!

ND IMG_3785

This is yet another piece that can be dressed up or down. I plan on wearing it with some cute lace up flats, but that’s not the route I took here! I decided to dress it up by wearing my dress with fushia pumps. I added a belt to define my waist and the right amount of bling around my neck.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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!
