High Tea

Group Edited IMG_9728

Scones, clotted cream and tea of every flavour – the ladies of Fab Four Fashion are off to enjoy a quintessentially English delight – afternoon tea.  Introduced to England by the 7th Duchess of Bedford after she complained of “having a sinking feeling” later in the day, afternoon tea became the perfect remedy.  Join us as we enjoy afternoon nibbles while keeping it oh so fancy!

Another day, another opportunity to glam up with the squad!

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.

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.

Business Casual

GRP IMG_0009 (1)

What does Business Causal means to you? Well as per google, business casual means relating to or denoting a style of clothing that is less formal than traditional business wear, but is still intended to give a professional and businesslike impression.   For FabFour Fashion Business Casual means casually dressed with style and flare. LOL if you don’t believe it scroll down and see for yourself.GRP IMG_9862

Although I work in a rather corporate environment, thankfully we do have casual fridays where we employees have the pleasure of dressing down while still looking pulled together.GT IMG_0273

 

GT IMG_0358

The basis of my business casual look were these white jeans and the royal blue waterfall collar vest.  I find that the vest smartens up the outfit making the whole look seem very pulled together.GT IMG_0337

I added my favourite made to measure check shirt from Sumissura.  I love where it hits me so that I don’t have to tuck it in but still look boardroom chic!  The finishing touch is my beloved Kate Spade bag.

ND IMG_0033I work in a corporate environment, so when we have meetings I definitely need to suit it up. But in general, our office dress code is very relaxed. Of course, regardless of the setting, I still have to do me and come correct!ND IMG_0219

I scored these amazing crop pants on J. Crew. The fit is just perfect and I just love the leather trim. I have to say a big thank you to the good folks at J. Crew for offering some tall options! This means that these pants were indeed meant to be crop… Tall women everywhere will understand LOL. Also, I don’t have the dreaded gaping at the waist, so no tailoring necessary!ND IMG_0191

Then I added this leather jacket that I am wearing as a top – by now, you all know that I live for multi purpose clothing! The jacket comes with hooks to allow you to secure the lapel and wear it as a top. I finished my look with my fuchsia pumps.

This look easily translates to after work play, but before then, gotta take care of bid-nass!ND IMG_9993

I have been fortunate to work in a place that allows their employees to wear business casual on Fridays but you already know your girl Judy still brings it LOL. I love that business casual attire allows you to still be dressy-professional but more laid back.JS IMG_9836

For me business casual is more of a khaki, polo or jeans, for my business casual look I opted for a simple stripey grey, blue, and orange shirt with my pleated black leather at the knee skirt. This look is still professional and quite cute for an after work outing with my Fab Four Fashion ladies.JS IMG_9770

To emphasize my stripe shirt I wore my suede dark Ivanka Trump pumps with my mix leather and suede dark wine clutch.JS IMG_9668

To finish my look I wore my camel wool winter Olivia Pop-ish coat and it looks like I’m ready to take care of business.

The infamous phrase “You should dress for the job you want, not the job you have” is a rule I like to live by.  So even when I’m doing casual looks, I still try to dress it up a notch. That’s definitely not to say that you won’t catch me in jeans, I love my dungarees, but I like a good business casual look.

LT IMG_9765

I’m still feeling that vintage vibe so I wanted to rock a look that made me feel it from head to toe. So I went with a look that makes me feel like I’d fit right into a modern day episode of the Jefferson’s! The tie neck blouse is perfect for the office and can give off that sexy secretary look and works well with a ton of other pieces in my wardrobe.

LT IMG_9796

For this look, I opted to pair my tie neck blouse with rust coloured culottes further emphasizing the throwback feel and these beige coloured boots that are in line with the simple colour palette and the overall look.

I kept the accessories to a minimum by wearing simple earrings and with that I’m ready for the office!

Sumissura

group IMG_4510

Quality foundation pieces are an integral part of any woman’s closet. They are literally the building blocks of a well rounded wardrobe; and a beautifully tailored, made to measure shirt is an excellent element to elevate that simple casual look, add flare to that business suit, or polish to those weekend boyfriend jeans.

Sumissura has the magic touch when it comes to made to measure, stylish shirts for women of all sizes! Pick your favourite style of shirt, favourite print and fabric, input your measurements and you’re on your way! See what the ladies of Fab Four cooked up when we stepped into the proverbial Sumissura kitchen!

group IMG_4478

Judy’s Look

I always get excited when I hear about Gail’s latest finds! This time she struck gold with this company that makes customized shirts and suits.

js IMG_3724

When I went to their website I was stunned to see the extent of the variety and selection they had to offer. I knew Fab Four Fashion and Summissura would make magic together!

Designing my shirt took some time because I just couldn’t make up my mind (too many choices!LOL) I was so impressed with the way the customization process is set out.  Once you’ve made a selection, style of shirt for example, you then see it reflected on the screen, like dressing up a mannequin (how cool is that?!).  The customizable features are exhaustive. You can choose the style of sleeve, fit, hemline, collar style, cuff style, the fabric and little added accents to make your shirt oh so unique.

js IMG_3697

Oh and let me tell you about their on point and accurate sizing system.  All you need do is enter a few of your measurements along with your height and you are then provided with an approximate calculation of your full measurements. I must say they are quite accurate. One added bonus is that if you are curvy and have a larger bust or a little tummy, this is factored in when designing the shirt to ensure great lines and a comfortable, tailor made fit.

After an extensive deliberation between 3 styles, I elected to go with this nice slim fit, long sleeve button-down shirt with a polka dot pattern in brown, yellow and grey. I must say I am very happy with the end result.

I can wear it to work, to brunch with the girls, or dress it up or down to suit a myriad of situations. For this look I went for corporate chic. I paired it with my faux leather midi pleated skirt and my camel coat. To finish off my look I wore my mustard pumps and a brown snakeskin clutch.

js IMG_3576

Bottom line, Sumissura is the business! It is well worth the expense when you consider that it’s made to measure. Their customized shirts start from around $49.00 which is quite impressive. I can’t say enough how impressed I was with their service. I give them top rating for their customization process as well. Even with a waiting period of a few weeks from order to delivery, it was well worth the wait. Next up Fab Four Fashion does Sumissura suits! LOL

Until next time!

Ladies. Can we talk about how hard it is to find the perfect fitting shirt?!! And extra small automatically implies that the sleeve lengths cannot possibly exceed 20 inches. And the bust! Oh the bust! If the bust don’t fit, you must acquit!! LOL.

nd IMG_4247

I don’t think that I need to mention that I’m always on a mission to find shirts with the right sleeve length. Also, I have an arched back, so my shirts often look like they are too big. Then add the bust and I always have that pesky gap which needs to be secured with a safety pin (because fashion tape isn’t actually sufficient!)

nd IMG_4292

Sumissura came to solve all these headaches! Their design tool is fool proof and so easy to use. You can input the obvious (measurements, style and fabric) but I was most impressed with the attention to detail. You can choose the colors of the buttons, thread or button-holes, whether you want epaulettes or not, you can even add a monogram if you want to!

nd IMG_4412

I decided to go with the polka dot shirt (a.k.a fugu) in slim fit, rounded hemline, classic collar, no pockets and shoulder straps. It’s a nice twist on a white shirt and can be worn in a million different ways: with a wide array of colors, solids or prints, for the office or for play. Today, I styled it for play by pairing it with simple jeans and a cape and studded pumps. I am truly happy with my shirt and certainly look forward to ordering many more!

Leslie’s Look

lt IMG_3765

I can honestly attest to the fact that I’ve never had a shirt that actually fit my shoulders, arms and waist properly without a quick trip to the tailor. But this simple striped shirt with flare from Sumissura hit the mark very well. Since it was my first time ordering from this company, I elected to go with a simple shirt that would get a lot of wear. The only extra touch I added was the French cuff sleeves that I just love!

lt IMG_3867

The Sumissura web site is very easy to navigate.  I was able to select whether I wanted a fitted shirt or relaxed fit, breast pockets, epaulettes, French cuffs, monogram, style of collar, fabric and print and this is not even an exhaustive list. The options are seemingly endless! Needless to say, I spent a lot of time trying to “design” my shirt. What is really great is that when I made a selection on the site I could immediately see what my selection would look like (you gotta love technology). This really puts you in the driver’s seat (or should I say designer’s seat).

lt IMG_3791

Next came breaking out the tape measure. Here’s where the magic really happens if you ask me. Make sure you put in your exact measurements. The system will provide a “guestimate” and from there you can make adjustments if needed. I had  a tricky time with this part as my guestimate was quite a bit off. But I know Gail’s was bang on so, it really just depends on the person. The moral of the story is, ensure your measurements are correct. If you run into difficulty, there is a trusty “Need Help” option that you can use to get all the guidance you need.

Then came the styling! I knew I wanted this to be a shirt that to be worn with one of my suits. And since, as most of you know, I’m a print junkie, I was more than happy to slip on my check print suit and striped pumps to turn the dial up on this look. To finish off the look, I threw on this brightly coloured overcoat to make sure I’m seen!

A well tailored shirt is one of the cornerstones of any woman’s closet – a wardrobe staple they’ll reach for over and over again.  Custom shirts offered by Sumissura equals quality, longevity and classic styles thgt can be dressed up or down.

Once again, we discovered a company that understands that women come in all shapes and sizes and thus they make their clothing available to all!

Sumissura not only offers great shirt and blouse styles but custom suits and coats as well and the fabric selections are wide and varied.

gt IMG_3482

The process of choosing the fabric and style of shirt was really quite easy and fun.  One got to choose not only the fabric to be used but the style of the collar, whether the shirt was loose or slim fitting.  One also got to select whether the shirt came with breast pockets or shoulder details and cuff details.  Once your selections were chosen they would be immediately shown on a mannequin so as to give the client an idea of what the shirt would look like given the choices you made!

gt IMG_3427

Once you’ve made all your selections for your shirt you are then prompted to enter your measurements.  The Sumissura site walks you through that whole process making it quite easy and their turnaround time for a custom shirt was lightening quick too!

gt IMG_3391

I decided to go for a slim fit blue check shirt and indulged my girly girl side by pairing it with this lovely black neoprene high low skirt.    I added gray pumps and a light blue tote to round out my look.

Farewell to Summer

It’s sad but true, it’s time to bid summer goodbye.  The ladies of Fab Four Fashion are putting away their short shorts, crop and tank tops and they’re saying hello to cool autmn breezes with a little hesitation.  But before they put all the summer clothes away they’re out for one last hoorah this Labour Day weekend!

You know how little kids sometimes hold on to their parent’s leg because they don’t want them to go? Well, that’s me holding on to summer’s imaginary leg!! LOL Seems like it was so short! Well, I’m not quite unpacking my fall fashion just yet because it’s not over till it’s over!

IMG_9003 Edited ND

This hot sunny day called for short shorts! Might as well enjoy them now, yes? The people with an eagle eye will recognize that this fabric hails from the mother land; more specifically Ghana.  So if you’ve been tracking with us for a little bit, you should know that very simple formula:

I decided to add to the fun by pairing my printed shorts with a printed top! This is actually a crop draped jacket that I’m wearing as a top. Of course it is, right? LOL I’m telling you, discovering ways to wear your clothes in different ways is always so much fun and kind to your wallet!

LOL  But before I don my turtlenecks and cords its one last hoorah for summer!

This black cropped tank top has served me well over the summer.  I found myself going to it a lot and that is because it is super comfortable and well….cropped.  As far as I’m concerned I don’t have any problems pulling if off…if you catch my drift LOL.

As for this skirt…I just died when I found it on the zulily.com website.  I just love the fact that this online sample site offers really great options for plus size women on a regular basis.  Anyhow, this animal print body con skirt had my name written all over so of course I had to snap it up quick!  I completed my look with a cute little black patent clutch, gold jewelry and by comfy yet stylish wedge sandals.  I’m off to enjoy a cocktail or three cause as Sheryl Crow sang, “I wanna soak up the sun, I wanna tell everyone to lighten up…”

This year it feels as though summer came and left so quickly.  This is our last time to flaunt our beautiful summer outfits, before transitioning to boots, scarfs and coats.  For my last summer look, I decided to wear this stunning skirt I found on eShakti a few months ago. Let me tell you I have been eyeing this skirt for months and even envisioned the different ways I would rock it!  This skirt has a beautiful mix of colors and the landscape print with gondola from Venice is just spectacular.  I really love the 2 pleat detail in front because it gives the skirt an A-line shape which I find flirty and feminine.

IMG_8150 Edited

As you already know from my previous polyvore posts (Flirting in a skirt and Mix and Match story) I love my skirts, especially the ones with patterns where I can remix them with different tops and accessories. For this outfit I was inspired by Creative Consultant and Fashion Market Director for Cosmopolitan Magazine the fabulous Shiona Turini. I often see her on her Instagram page posting pictures of her beautiful outfits and she seems to be a fan of crop tops and skirts.

IMG_8244 Edited

I paired my skirt with a simple white crop top, my blingy necklace and a pair of blush coloured pumps, just to keep the focus of my outfit on my skirt.  Another good thing about this skirt is that it’s from eShakti which caters to everybody type, therefore my tall, curvy and plus size sisters can all benefit!!

This look is the epitome of all things I love about summer: cool colours, perfect prints and a playful feel.  The belt helps to accentuate my waist, while the yellow colour of the vest acts as the perfect foil to show off  the dress to its  best advantage.

“To Stiletto, or Not to Stiletto: That is the Question”

LT feature

LT Intro

Now ladies, haven’t we all been in the situation where we go out to a cool, trendy venue, in our drop-dead gorgeous killer heels and less than half way through the event you find yourself thinking: “what kind of stupid event is this that doesn’t have any place to sit” and “when can we go so I can get these ridiculous shoes off my poor, aching feet”?! Well ladies, I know I’ve been there and while I adore my stilettos – the higher the better, I love my feet too and sometimes I need to give them a break and switch it up a little. That being said, be they stiletto or be they flat, they must always be fly!  Here are some fabulous flats that will look hawt, Hawt, HAWT with that little black dress or amp up those sexy jeans!

 

Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Satin Flats

You ladies probably all recall the beautiful Manolo’s Carrie Bradshaw wore in the first Sex and the City movie. Well sistas, they made them in a FLAT! These flats are absolutely stunning and come in a range of gorgeous colours! Dress or jeans, you just can’t go wrong with these bad boys!  And they go up to a size 12!

 

 

Manolo Flat

 

 

Valentino Rockstud Leather Point-toe Flats

These gorgeous flats are one of my “lust” items. I think that they can bring an edgier look to the simplest of outfits. They can easily transition from working the boardroom to twerking in the club –not that I know anything about that, and they won’t leave you feeling “flat” (pardon the pun)! These are also available in sizes to 12.

Tory Burch Bedford Flat

All I can say is I simply love these shoes! They come in three different colours (black, cobalt blue & cinder) and the heel features a gold plate detail with a small T insignia. Daytime, nighttime, anytime, they will keep you high-stepping and looking good doing it!

Cross-strap Flat from Zara

Zara boasts a fantastic selection of shoes and I admit, I have a section of my closet dedicated to all things Zara! These darling flats are the epitome of versatility, with a nude color that can easily cap off any ensemble. The cross-strap detail at the toe adds just the right amount of visual interest to keep these flats from being too simple and the patent finish gives them a touch of elegance.  And the pièce de résistance; at just $49.90, they’re not just easy on the eyes; they’re easy on the wallet too!

Sole Society – Chandler Flat

Ladies, ladies, ladies! These leopard print flats from Sole Society are quite honestly, one of the shoes of my whole entire life! They combine my secret, or not so secret, love of leopard print, a t-strap which I adore and have that sexy point-toe design…..Oh ladies, I’m feeling light headed! Boardrooms, classrooms, cocktails, clubs whatever you’re doing in your life, you need to be doing it in these oh-so-fine, soon-to-be-mine shoes!

SoleSociety

 

So ladies, next time you’re putting that killer outfit together, reach for those sexy flats. You’ll look fierce, feel fabulous, and your feet will not be the reason you leave the event early!

In this case, Alloy Apparel made my life super easy – you see, this jumpsuit comes in sizes 1 to 25 AND 32″ or 37″ inseams!

Ladies Who Brunch

Feature Image

Gmain After a busy work week of deadlines and meetings, we ladies enjoy catching up, when our schedules allow, to enjoy a delicious meal at one of our favourite brunch spots.  As we were about to make our way downtown we, of course, had to snap a few pictures to share our casual get together looks with you. Gkiki

Also, Leslie, Nancy & Gail took advantage of our friend Kennie‘s visit in town to get our makeup done! She is located in Montreal but will travel for events.

Leslie’s Brunch Look

I absolutely love throwing on my favourite  pair of jeans and some knock-’em-dead heels and this look pairs the two. Add in a print or two and I’m ready for the world or just brunch with the girls!

 Nancy’s Brunch Look

For this look, I borrowed from the boys. When I saw this sweatshirt in the men’s department at H&M, it took me way back to Grandmaster Flash (or Bad Boys if you’re into the remix) and I just had to have it. n1

Gail’s Brunch Look

Meeting up with the ladies is always fun and, of course, an excuse to get a little dolled up.  This sparkly scarf from Danier is the scarf of my life!  Canadian winters can be brutal so I’ll use any excuse to inject a little “za za zoo” when I have to bundle up. G4The gray turtleneck is from the Gap and I’ve paired it with white, yes, white in winter, pants from Eloquii.

 I’ve completed the look with calf hair boots from Nine West and a silver handbag from Kate Spade.  The 3/4 length navy coat is beyond divine and I scored it from Zara.

Judy’s Brunch Look

For a nice brunch with my ladies, I wore my leather shorts with my over the knee boots. Since it’s a day look, I made the look more casual by wearing my boots/short combo with a sweater over a jean shirt. To finish my look, I wore my camel Olivia Pope-esque winter coat with a nice fur collar  custom made by my lovely friend Kerry Ann.   J1
