Fall Out of Summer

grp-img_6463

grp-img_6369Wondering how you can add some extra longevity to your summer wardrobe? Check out how the ladies of Fab Four Fashion transition some of their favourite summer sizzlers to fetching fall fashions.

Leslie’s Look

lt-img_5739

Don’t just fade to black because the temperature has begun it’s study descent toward freezing. There are so many colours that make up the spectrum, why not try incorporating more of them into your fall wardrobe and help brighten up those autumn days.

lt-img_5843

My look was all about colour! I truly feel that we should all extend those beautiful summer colours into fall! This is one of my favourite outfits  to wear to the office! I always feel great in  it (even when I wake up feeling like I look like Frankenstein’s bride!LOL).

lt-img_5850

The accessorizing of this look was very simple. Cool earrings, neutral pumps and a gold bangle and I was ready for after work drinks with the crew!

So the moral of the story is, don’t leave behind all those summer colours just because the trees are putting on their peacock like show. Strut your stuff in colour this season and give the tress a little colour competition!

Judy’s Look

js-img_5902It’s always great to have pieces of clothing that transition well from summer to fall. Whenever I get a chance to be creative I mix and match these pieces very well.

js-img_6044For this fall look, I decided to use my Mélange Mode African print skirt. I absolutely love the print of this skirt, and the fact that I can wear it in the summer with a brighter top (see Melange Mode post), and switch it up in the fall is a huge bonus to me. For my look I paired my skirt with a simple denim shirt. Since fall is all about coats and jackets, I also threw on my fave camel coat.

js-img_5907I would wear this outfit not only for work, but for one of the various events happening during fall. To complete my look, I added a pop-up colour, with a pair of wine suede pumps and a clutch.

When fall is around the corner, I know that I am eager to pull out my boots and coats and all those cool layers. But considering this weather, we are not quite there yet. That’s when transitioning your summer wardrobe becomes key. With that said, I have cheated a little bit. My transitional piece is this leather skirt. Leather used to be more of a fall/winter material but clearly, it’s now worn year round. So to be fall ready, I only had to swap out my crop top for an oversized sweatshirt.

nd-img_6195

 

 

nd-img_6188I love the oversize sleeves – which tall girls works for us! #winning. I finished my look with some striped pumps and a sexy handbag (which may or may not be the property of another Fab Four Fashion member… LOL).

Until Mother Nature decides to dip the mercury where we can wear our autumn best, I will continue to dip around in my summer wardrobe!

Fall is here and I’m all for it.  For my fall look I shopped my closet and my sister Leslie’s too LOL. I went all the way back to our Fab Four Fashion Pants post for inspiration.  I took my olive green jeans and paired them with this long sleeved blush coloured bodysuit that I recently acquired.  I love this particular colour combination.

I then swiped Leslie’s oatmeal coloured vest for added warmth.

For some sparkle and glama, yes, I mean glama LOL, I added these gold studded ankle strap flats. With that my fall transitional outfit is complete.

Colour Me Summer

LT Edited IMG_0088

LT Edited IMG_0048

So, I need some “audience participation” right now. I need you to first relax those tense shoulders…roll your neck from side to side slowly 2 times…sit up straight, then take a deep breath and let it out slowly, gradually relaxing all your muscles; your back, your neck, your arms, legs……

Now, hold it there…see that feeling you’re feeling right now? That moment, though brief, that precise moment where you feel utterly, shamelessly, blissfully, relaxed? THAT is how I feel on a hot, sunny, summer’s day …and this dress is the cherry on top, adding an extra sashay to my hips, making my shoulders and arms feel more languid, and ever so slowly parting my lips into a wicked smile that makes me look like the cat that caught the cream!

LT Edited IMG_0352

This dress and I met the way people talk about two star-crossed lovers: across a crowded room. Ok ok, it was a store. But location notwithstanding, it was all that story tellers write about; love at first sight! And when we got together, oh baby, it was electric!

LT Edited IMG_0269

 

LT Edited IMG_0366

The chemistry was just right. Perfect print, beautiful colour combination, silhouette that shows off my curves and enough stretch for those ladies packing a little extra heat!;-)

LT Edited IMG_0057

Now for some of the small details that I love about this dress that can easily be overlooked. While it’s very form fitting, the darker print of the bottom portion allows us ladies to be more flexible with the type of undergarments we opt to wear (i.e. it keeps our “Victoria’s Secrets, secret!). Subtle panty lines are easily hidden (whoot-whoot for us ladies who aren’t always wearing our sexy panties LOL) and the split in the back. Oh thank you Jesus for those designers that recognized that while we want the pencil shape look, we still need to actually walk….like with real, grown women steps or climb stairs without difficulty (yeah, I once mistakenly got one of them tricksy skirts that was  just not allowing me to be great!lol ß and yeah, I did call it “tricksy”, no typo!LOL).

LT Edited IMG_0299

 

LT Edited IMG_0239

But really, I love the sheer simple line of this dress. The style and print offer so much visual interest, that one really doesn’t have to do much to it. It’s really that quintessential throw on and go type of piece.

LT Edited IMG_0218

Being that I like to be a little extra sometimes, I wanted to accessorize to the hilt, and the name of my accessory game was all gold urvything!LOL. I feel like a warrior princess, with my battle field being the concrete jungle of the 6ix!

With that, I’m ready for anything!

When the weather warms up like this, it means one and only one thing: it’s time to get summertime fine! Lol Because I’m often quick to run to the store or online for a fly look, I challenged myself to get creative with existing pieces from my wardrobe.

ND Edited IMG_1124

Honestly, I know it’s really not that hard to pull pieces from your own wardrobe, but when your closet is in utter chaos (I can’t be alone on this one… am I? ?? Lol) it’s easy to forget some of the gorgeous pieces hidden in its depths.

Summer equals color, color, and more color. So when I rediscovered this Dedo Azu asymmetrical skirt, I knew that it would be at the center of my look.

 

ND Edited IMG_1222

I paired my dress with a sweetheart neckline top (which is actually a dress) that I wore here. Because I wanted the fullest full skirt ever, I added a tutu underneath. So I was basically wearing a dress with two skirts lol but it created just the right look that I was looking for and I didn’t drop a dime. YAY ME!

I finished off my look with a black cut out cuff for a dash of edge, some dangly black earrings and mustard pumps because it just goes! With that, I’m ready for summer night awesomeness!

I love wearing pretty summer dresses when  the weather warms up and this one is one of my faves! I’m sure you won’t be surprised to know that it was the gorgeous colour and super cool African print that drew me to this dress. The colour is fun and vibrant, while the print has the shape and symmetry that just appeals to me!

LT Edited IMG_1027

While this is a halter dress, I opted to rock it with a leather moto style jacket to give the illusion that it is actually a skirt. Truth be told, I also did this because I did not have time to have it altered and it’s still a wee bit too big!LOL But this just goes to show what you can do when you think outside the box!

The midi length of this dress is perfect for the tall girl and the flared skirt gives me some added volume on my bottom half.

LT Edited IMG_0853

The accessorizing of this outfit was easy. I wore a studded black belt to highlight my waist, and a little sparkle at the ears in the form of dangly earrings. To turn the colour all the way up, I added these neon yellow stilettos; and with that, I was ready to enjoy a warm spring evening and night out with that special someone, or with great friends!

Gail’s Look

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but I would have to add sequins to the list too.  So, without question this skirt is the star of this outfit.  It hugs me in all the right places and when the light catches just right, its as though I’m shining bright like a diamond.

Edited IMG_1870

As I mentioned before, this skirt fits me to a “T” and features olive green, black and white sequins arranged in a camo print pattern.  This non stretch skirt is unlined with an invisible zipper and has an inset elastic waistband so it goes unseen.Edited IMG_1737

Edited IMG_1864

I paired my gem of a skirt with this black mesh long sleeved bodysuit.  I layered it with another bodysuit worn underneath.  To round out my look I added black peep toe pumps and gold accessories.  With that my friends my outfit is complete!

Judy’s Look

JS Edited IMG_1375

Dressing up and dressing well is something that I love doing oh so much.  For my dressy look I went for a subtle feminine, femme-fatale red dress. I was fortunate enough to find this gorgeous red dress that almost looks like a 2 piece set, in my favorite scuba material.  Red is a color that a lot of people shy away from, however you can never go wrong with the right shade of red. I found this dress on my favorite website, ASOS, and since the dress was well priced (you know I’m always looking for a great deal) I just had to have it!

JS Edited IMG_1395

What drew me to this dress is the illusion of it being a 2 piece set.  Also, I’m a sucker for a voluminous puffy skirt. Since the top of the dress is fitted and looks like a crop top, the bottom part being puffy creates an overall effect that I simply love!

JS Edited IMG_1543

Another great thing about this dress is that it is made out of a scuba material; it always does right by me.  I love the stretch that this material offers, but more importantly, I appreciate that the material holds me in at all the right places. A thicker scuba material carefully smooths out my blemishes which is always a plus.

JS edited IMG_1414

To complete my feminine femme-fatale look I paired my dress with some leopard print pumps and a sparkly necklace, and voila, I’m ready to conquer.

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.

Leslie’s Look

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.

Casually chic at an affordable price perfectly describes Old Navy to me.  Here again, we have another retailer that offers fun affordable clothes for everyone no matter our size.  So basically, Old Navy’s got your back!GT IMG_8441

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.

A Pop of Colour

Despite the chill in the air, spring is here, and with it comes fresh air, warmer breezes and an array of colours! I love wearing colour irrespective of season and temperature, but there’s just something about springtime that makes me want to reach for those pieces in the neon electric side of my colour wheel wardrobe!

LT Edited IMG_5810

LT Edited IMG_5951

Coordinates were a hot thing last year, and I dove into this trend head first, but only recently pulled this little number out of my closet. With its black and white print that helps to make my body look a little fuller with the fitted pencil skirt and blousy top, it also provides the perfect foundation for paring with a host of colours, both bright and muted.LT Edited IMG_6086
LT Edited IMG_6108

I wanted to add a pop of colour that would leave a lasting impression on those retinas, so I pulled out my neon green coat perfect for keeping away what’s left of the winter chill, but bright enough to ensure that you get seen. This coat is not for the faint of heart or for those preferring to blend in! It’s for the woman that is not afraid to stand out in a crowd!

LT Edited IMG_6146
Accessorizing this look was a synch. Black and white goes with just about everything, so I decided to add a little more print to this look in the form of these snake print colouful pumps. The colours compliment the look beautifully and the print adds more visual interest and frankly, I just love ‘em.LT Edited IMG_6127

LT Edited IMG_7387I kept the jewelry super simple by rocking this funky geometric design cuff and pewter earrings. This look is perfect for an after work gathering or, if you switch up the earrings, would be great for a day at the office when you want to show your colleagues that “yeah, I still got it”!LOL

So have fun with colour this season and remember, don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd!

For my brunch look I went with the so called “Canadian Tuxedo”. LOL  Denim on denim was a definite no no for me, but I broke that all up by adding this faux fur vest.

GT IMG_9691

These skinny jeans are the bomb.com.  Now I know finding great fitting jeans or pants, for that matter, can be a difficult task.  When looking for the best fitting jeans, I always try to fit the largest part of my body first.  Yes, often times that means that the waist is too big for me but I just traipse on over to my neighbourhood tailor to have them altered and I’m good to go.

Next came the shoes.  I went for my trusty wedge booties.  Last but not least was this blushed coloured purse by Rebecca Minkoff!  I love this purse because it can be worn cross body or as a regular shoulder bag.  Now my “Canadian Tuxedo” look is complete.  Yo, somebody get me a mimosa!

LT IMG_0073
We’ve been lucky in the 6ix this winter and have not been hit too hard with the winter chill. So I tossed aside my winter parka for a cute punch of colour in the form of this coat.

LT IMG_0107

The rest of my look was subdued elegance. I went for a very neutral colour palette, donning a simple sleeveless oatmeal coloured funnel neck sweater and faux leather leggings.

To round out my outfit, I stepped into my leopard print pumps, threw all my “necessities” into my trusty LV bag and I was ready for my mimosa and some bacony goodness (sorry to my vegetarians out there. I just love my bacon!:-)

One thing I love is getting together with my girls for brunch! We talk, we laugh, and most importantly we eat.  For this post I will highlight what I wear for a typical casual brunch with the ladies. For this look I decided to wear a comfortable outfit that transitions well from brunching to running errands in the 6ix. 

I chose to wear a nice blue, camel and black sweater that I scored at H&M which pairs beautifully with my camel “Olivia Pope” inspired coat.

JS IMG_0333

I wore my favorite pair of jeans which are my “Second Yoga Skin” jeans. These jeans are perfect for curvy girls like me as they fit like a glove and they do not cause the gaping at the back of the waist – hallelujah! 

To complete my daytime look I jazzed it up with my grey ankle booties I got from BCBG a long time ago. The price was so good that I got the black ones as well. I don’t regret these two purchases at all cause ‘til this day I rock them and they still look like new!

JS IMG_0349

Awww … the struggle of having big feet makes you appreciate it all the more when you find fantastic shoes, and when you have them you treat them like precious gems!   

The finishing touches for my look were my camel coat and this cute camel and brown coloured leather clutch, and now I’m ready to start my day.

Brunching is one of those essential parts of life!! That’s when we leave our phones, social media and worries at the door and just focus on connecting. This time, we chose to check out a really laid back spot so I kept my look casual cute.

ND IMG_9839

 

Most weekends, you’ll catch me wearing jeans. They are comfy, fit for all kinds of occasions and are just a must have for my lifestyle. Because I wanted my look to have a little edge, I decided to go with these ripped jeans (which I distressed myself btw!).

ND IMG_9883

 

I paired my jeans with a high low sleeveless turtleneck and my trustly leather jacket to keep the chill at bay. Tall girl story about this jacket: it was a gift (from my now hubby) and I loved the jacket BUT the sleeves were too short… Shocking. So to fix that, we took it to a leather goods store and they were able to find leather that matched perfectly to lengthen my jacket! When I tell you that we have to be creative! Finally, because I don’t feel good until I have a pop of color, I finished my look with these hot pink pumps.

Now pass the mimosas… minus the OJ LOL

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.

JS IMG_9622

 

 

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.

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).

ND IMG_9235

 

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.

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!

Gail’s Look

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!

Spring Stepping

Spring Shoes

Spring is around the corner ladies! This means that we get to kick our dusty winter boots to the curb and step out in our freshest footwear. To get you ready, we compiled a list that will surely have you drooling. So whether you have wider feet, or need the highest heels on the planet, we’ve got you covered!

Our girl Gail loves a good flat. Here’s what she found.

Don’t get me wrong, sky high heels are beautiful and do all kinds of amazing things to one’s legs but they’re not too forgiving to one’s feet.  So, below are some of my fave flats that are also available in wide sizes.
Carina Flat Eloquii
These beauties come in blue, a floral prints and the stripes (shown above). Available in sizes 7w to 12w.
Estella Ball Flat Eloquii
A metallic flat is always a must! They also come in red and black, silver, and also in black and white. Sizes 7W to 12W.
3. Gemstone Peep Toe D’orsay Flats
Torrid sandal
Blinged out toes? Yes please! Available in sizes 7 to 13.
Leslie’s ascribes to the philosophy that higher is better!
If you’re a gal that likes her high heels the way I do, you will love these sexy numbers that will definitely give you an extra wiggle when you walk, not to mention some extra pizzazz to that outfit! One of my fave places to buy shoes is Office; a company out of the UK, and though shipping and duties can be a bit of a drag, for the right “gem” it’s worth it (yes, I am a shoe-aholic!LOL)
4. On To Point Court Heels
office 3
This is just the perfect pump and it boasts a 4.5″ heel. Available in sized 5 to 10.
Office 1
This stunner is such a statement piece. If you’re a size 5 to 9, they could be yours!
office 2
What we have here ladies, is a gorgeous two toned snake gem! Available in sizes 5 to 10.
Let’s talk about stilettos pump and Judy’s fascination with them.

I’m always on the lookout for the best pointed toed pumps that makes my size 11 feet looks sexy. When I found out that Ivanka Trump’s shoe line goes up to size 11, I almost did a back flip LOL. A few months ago, I purchased 2 pairs of Ivanka Trumps Carra Dress Pump. I can’t stress enough how much I love them. They have a perfect tip, are super comfortable (thanks to the cushion found at the ball of the foot) and true to size.

7. Carra Pointed-Toe Pumps

cara

These pumps comes in over a dozen different colors, patterns and materials such as suede, leather and patent. Available in sizes 5 to 11. Also available at Lord & Taylor.

8. Dea Pointed Toe Pump

sam 2

 

This is another pump that aims to please. Also available in many colors, and up to size 11.5.

9. Hazeley Peep Toe Lace Up High Heel Sandals

Nothing screams sexy like a lace up peep toe. These Dolce Vita sandals come in four different colors and from size 6 to 11.

Lastly, tall resident Nancy represents for the ladies with a larger footprint.

I was sitting comfortably at a size 11 until I had my baby. While I was eager to bring on this new life, I was not aware that my feet would further expand! Going from a size 8 to 9? No big deal. But going from 11 to 12?!!?!! That’s a life changing experience! (Dramatic much?? LOL). Thankfully, the extended shoe size offerings continue to improve, but there is definitely more room to grow (pun totally intended).

10. LTS Rome High Leg Leather Gladiator

You’ll be ready to conquer the world in these bad boys. These are available in sizes 9 to 15!

11. Aisha Suede Fringe Sandal

Sam

Wedding season will soon be upon us and these sandals will be sure to carry you through! Available in sizes 4 to 12.

Vanity Fair Part 2

GRP IMG_8660

Allow us to re-introduce ourselves, we have been here almost a year now, constantly giving you fabulous post after post. LOL Well, we know you missed us and we missed you too. It feels good to be posting again after a brief hiatus. Our only suggestion for you, our avid followers, is to stick with us because this year we have so much fun and interesting posts to share with you.

GRP IMG_8517

Judy’s Look

JS IMG_8780

We are baaack from a much needed hiatus but I must say if feels good to be back. This year I’m focused on my evolving style.  I have so many ideas and I can’t wait to share them with all of you.  For my first look of the year I went with this bedazzling two tone sparkly sequin dress. I thought this dress would be perfect for a proper return to the blogging world.

JS IMG_8841

I scored this dress at a store that, until recently, I don’t really go to very often but since I found this gorgeous dress there I will be sure to browse the Reitman’s store and website more often now.  What I love the most about the dress is the 2 tone copper and silver colours. It’s a very short well fitting bodycon dress with very good stretch fabric.

JS IMG_8854

I love this dress so much I intended to get the full use out of it and I have a vision of adding feathers at the bottom to remix it and to add few extra inch to this fabulous dress.

JS IMG_8790

To complete my look I put on my feather jacket, my ankle booties and my Mom’s vintage clutch and I’m ready to slay.

nd IMG_9144Don’t call it a come back! We’ve been here for… one year 🙂 For our first photo shoot post vacay, we decided to don our fav looks which make us feel like we can take over the world. And in doing so, I chose a LRD (that’s a little red dress) that is 100% me!

ND IMG_9005

 

 

ND IMG_9020First off, the colour is just divine. As a huge fan of bright colors, this dress had to be on the menu. Second, it’s backless! You already know how I feel about that… lol  I will repeat it for the sake of any new readers: I could spend the rest of my days in a backless anything. The subdued sexiness of an open back is just everything. And third, it shows off my gams! This dress makes me feel all kinds of amazing, which is just what I plan on being in 2016! Stay tuned for more!

Leslie’s Look

New year, new look! We couldn’t wait to get back into the action and share some sexy, sizzling looks with you all.

My look: bold and beautiful! This dress called out to me one day as I was perusing the web (a.k.a. on-line shopping). The pattern, fit and detailing were perfect for my style and shape.

LT IMG_9479

The pattern, coupled with the fit, showed off the curves I have and the scoop back was perfect to hide my bra, but still show off a little skin. I love the length of this dress as well, as it is long enough to make Mama happy, but short enough to let that cutie at a party know I got pretty nice gams!;-)

lt IMG_9622

All I needed to do to complete this look was add a little dangle in the form of these earrings from H&M and some nude shoes that keep the dress the focus of the look.

And just like that I’m ready for cocktails and caviar.

Gail’s Look (allow me to re-introduce myself lol)

As you all know, I’m all about the faux fur life so essentially I created my outfit around this fabulous fur stole!

GT IMG_9213

This nude faux suede front twist dress is the business.  I found it on the MissGuided site and knew I immediately had to have it for my come back look.  The ruching and vneckline does wonders for my curves and décolletage!

GT IMG_9274

 

GT IMG_9321

What I love about this particular retailer is that they cater to all sizes, regular, petite, tall and plus size!  Amen!

GT IMG_9228

To complete my look I added leopard print slingback kitten heels, and a little bling around my neck.  Oh and of course I’ve basically got the whole world dangly from my hand in the form of a “golden globe” clutch!  So, for 2016 and beyond I’m doing as Queen Bey commanded – I’m in FORMATION and ready to slay ALL DAY! LOL

RUE107: PART 2

grp IMG_2121

Rue 107 is about celebrating women and fashion, and helping them bring out their inner confidence! We, the ladies of Fab Four Fashion, are here for this and were more than happy to jump into four hot looks that compliment our curves and express our inner divas!

grp IMG_2158

See what happened when Fab Four Fashion and Rue 107 collide!

Nancy’s Look

Another day, another great find! Their tag line – Home of Confidence and Curves – says it all. I had seen Rue 107 but I did not know that they catered to all body types. AND I did not know that the founder was a fellow Haitian! Sa kap fet!! Now that this is out of the way, let’s dig in on the great finds.

ND IMG_2258

This saucy two piece made me forget that  -100 degree weather is at our doorsteps LOL. I fully embrace this resort piece that I will break out during my next vacation.

First off, the fit on these pieces is impeccable. The stretchy material embraces ones curves quite nicely. Despite not being a “tall line”, the length of the skirt worked really well with my long gams. The length of the crop top works really well too. It’s not too short where my entire mid section would be exposed.

ND IMG_2293

Then, the design is also on point. That peplum details on the skirt is the cutest. For someone who isn’t super “hip-py”, this sort of detail adds volume where it’s most needed. This allows me to compete with the Judy’s and the Gail’s of the world! LOL Ok, maybe not… I decided to cross the halter top strings forward for an interesting lookND IMG_2453

I wanted to keep my look in fifty shades of blue so I paired my two piece outfit with some blue pumps. I added two silver cuffs to give it that extra edge. And now we just wait for my winter get away where I can recreate this look with a bit more heat!

Top & Skirt (available in sizes 4 – 24): c/o Rue 107 // Pumps: Jessica Simpson //

Leslie’s Look

IMG_2605

Talk about a little colour to make a girl think of warm temperatures! This outfit is so great for you lucky ladies out ther that will be fortunate enough to be getting away from the cold this winter or who are lucky enough to live in warmer climes year round! But don’t be fooled, these to pieces can be rocked separately to create hot new looks that will work anytime of the year which is key for those of us that love to do wardrobe remixes!

LT IMG_2785

This white bodysuit is very comfortable with a ton of stretch to it. Paired here with this powder blue mini circle skirt, it can also be easily worn with a pair of jeans or a pencil skirt. Talk about versatility! And la piece de resistance is that it comes in sizes 4 to 24!!

LT IMG_2803

This circle skirt has flirtiness in spades! From the colour to the style to the length it just screams, “I am sassy, hear me roar”! LOL If you want to warm this skirt up for the cooler seasons, try rocking it with a cool tee and blazer or a cute off the shoulder sweater and some sexy over-the-knee boots and you’ll be ready to hit the streets!

All in all, spring/summer, winter or fall, you can look hot in this little number from Rue 107!

Ladies, I am showing up and showing out in this glorious 2 piece set from Rue107, founded by Marie Jean Baptiste. This collection epitomizes everything that the ladies of Fab Four Fashion stand for – stylish, chic, cutting edge fashions for ALL sizes of women!

GT IMG_2978

 

GT IMG_2973

This blue peacock 2 piece number is an outfit that is definitely outside of my comfort zone – but you know what, I’m going for it!  I imagine myself sipping a cool tropical concoction in some exotic locale, just taking in the scene.

The fit of this 2 piece number was pretty spot on.  I wore a size 2X for the top and a 3X for the skirt.  The only thing I would suggest is that, if you’re more voluptuous than me, I would recommend sizing up.

GT IMG_3019 re edited

 

Of course, with a gorgeous body conscious outfit like this, I highly recommend shapewear for a nice smooth look.  I’m wearing a bike shorts style shaper from Maidenform.

I rounded out my look with blue suede slingbacks, a pastel mint green clutch, and a bold statement necklace for extra umph!

Judy’s Look

Like I said in my previous post (seen here), Rue 107 understands that all women, irrespective of size and shape, want to be dressed in style. They cater to women who are confident, not afraid of bold color and print and want to celebrate their shape!

JS IMG_1880

For this look I went with a 2 piece high-waisted skirt and wraparound crop top combo.

JS IMG_1930

This print is bold, in your face and makes people stand up and take notice. It’s totally different from the common leopard print that you usually see. This print makes me want to roar, and screams “I’m bringing sexy back”!LOL Another thing that is great about both these pieces is the stretch factor, which gives you enough room to breathe while still hugging every curve.

JS IMG_1979

You would be more likely to see me wearing this cute 2 piece number on vacation at a hot resort, grooving to some funky tunes and sipping on a fruity drink with lots of rum!LOL. You best believe that this sexy little 2 piece will be traveling with me on my next trip down south!
