Some Enchanted Evening

GT Edited IMG_8412

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.

GT EditedIMG_8425

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.

To  complete my look I added dangly earrings, nude pumps and this box clutch.  With that I’m ready to strut my stuff!

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!

“….And I feel like I just win a million dollars!”  The lyrics to a beloved soca song by KES The Band always gets me ready to jump and wave during Caribana aka JUMP UP to us West Indians!!!  From wonderful island rhythms to delicious West Indian food like roti, I just love this time of year!

I chose this sage green front knot body con dress with a plunging neckline.  Hey, its Caribana one has to live a little LOL.  I added this gold bodychain to accent the plunging neckline that I just love!

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!

Melissa McCarthy  has hit us again with a beautiful summer collection available through Penningtons!  The Melissa McCarthy Seven7 clothing line debuted last year to loads of hip hop hoorays.GT Edited IMG_8343

When I laid eyes on this kimono on the Pennington’s website, I was literally salivating.  I just adored the print and colours and that fringe….oooo wwweeee!

GT Edited IMG_7834

 

GT Edited IMG_8378

This kimono would make for an amazing swimsuit coverup as well being a great layering piece to give a little extra kick to a casual outfit.

 

GT Edited IMG_7844

Now these flared cuffed jeans are the bomb.com.  What I adore about them is that the fabric is so soft.  They don’t feel heavy at all.  I must confess that I’m not really a denim jeans type of lady but these jeans are the truth.  The jeans have a ton of stretch so I was able to go down a size.GT Edite IMG_8167

Now for those of you who are plus size and short like me, you will need to pay a visit to the tailor to get those hemmed to the right length for you.

To complete my look I haded some dangly earrings and some cool shades – and with that I’m sitting pretty enjoying a beautiful summer day!

Office Chic

GRP IMG_8232

Not sure what to wear to the office this summer? Check out some cute looks from the ladies of Fab Four that just might inspire you!

GRP IMG_8185

Nancy’s Look

Sun is shining, the weather is sweet… and as much as we’d all rather be moving our dancing feet, some of us gotta go to work! Thankfully, this season allows us to do so in style.

ND IMG_9246

Summer to me is synonymous with color, color and more color. That’s why I had to work this skirt into my office chic look. I have made full use of it for play time but now it’s just what I needed to werk it at work. The scuba material gives this pencil skirt the best fit.

ND IMG_9265

To remain sexy and cool, I paired my skirt with a lace top. To wear lace at work or not to wear lace at work, that is the question! It all depends on your work environment. Mine is not the most conservative, but nonetheless, I always make sure that I wear it with a tank top that provides full coverage. The goal is always to look professional and classy while being comfortably you. Just rock whatever outfit will make you walk tall like you own the joint (even if you don’t actually own it… yet!).

ND IMG_9563

Since it’s summertime, I try to wear pieces that can easily take me from the boardroom to the bar. So swap your pumps for some lace up sandals, add some bling around your neck and enjoy that cocktail!

It’s 7:30 AM, it’s already 25 degrees out and you’re getting ready to head out to the office, but first, you gotta figure out what to wear! This task can be daunting, especially when you can’t just throw on shorts and a tee. My solution to the summer heat + work outfit dilemma is the flared skirt.

LT IMG_9071

For me, a flared skirt equals great ventilation!lol I need the air to flow around me to keep me cool and I love that feeling of freedom (no pants restricting my movements.

LT IMG_9095

This look was super-dooper simple. I went for a tone on tone mix rocking this purple pleather, sleevless top and a mauve flared midi skirt. The shoes I kept neutral and then threw on some cool accessories to jazz things up a little. This look also transitions extremely well into an after work happy hour event or a nice dinner out!

So bring on the heat, cause I got it beat baby!

Gail’s Look

As the temperature rises, maintaining that polished professional look can sometimes leave you wondering what to wear to work.  As you make your way to the office, it might be humid and sticky but once you arrive it’s as though you’ve been dropped in a freezer because the air conditioning is cranked all the way up to Antarctica temperatures!  To combat these two extreme scenarios I make sure to have layering pieces in my wardrobe.

GT Edited IMG_9698

For this summer office chic look I went with this 3/4 length jacket to guard me against the frigid ac temp.  Although this jacket is a feminine pink colour, it’s very tailored and sleek.

GT Edited IMG_9713

I then paired my jacket with this cotton (read breathable) dusty rose coloured tank and a cream coloured pencil skirt.  Both of these pieces work to keep me looking business chic but cool and comfy for those commutes to and from work via public transit.

To complete my look I added blushed coloured pumps (worn only at the office and NOT durig my commute as I wouldn’t survive LOL) and the tote purse to hold all my much needed items.  And voila, summer office chic at its best!

JS IMG_8505

The office chic look is right up my alley. When summer comes around I’m ready to show up to show off.   For me an office chic look is when classic professional meets stylish fashionista. Some of my favorite office looks are dresses, pants and printed shirts. Having these essential items can easily allow you to transition from a day at the office to happy hour. Let me introduce you to my office chic look.

JS IMG_8638

For this look I went for my 3/4 olive high-waisted pants from ASOS . These pants are perfection, love how they hug my body. A high waist is just what I need to show off my hourglass figure. I don’t have to deal with the usual gap at the back when I sit, and the built in belt is just perfect. I have been looking for pants like this for a very long time so when I saw them online I couldn’t resist buying them, and I’m hopeful they’ll come out in many colors so I can purchase them all!

JS IMG_8816

Since we can now finally enjoy the nice weather, I decided to wear my high waist pants with a sleeveless high collar shirt. This shirt goes well with almost anything and I can easily put a sweater or simple jacket over it, and I’m good to go.

JS IMG_8761

To complete my cute office chic look, I paired my outfit with leopard print pumps by Sam Edelman, and just like that I’m ready to handle business at work than enjoy a nice cocktail at a cute spot for happy hour.

Summer Summer Summer time!  As the temperature rises it signals that its time to break some fashion rules!

Edited IMG_2341

With this outfit I’ve committed the 3 dreaded no-nos of plus size fashion:

1.No Horizontal Stripes

2. No Baring of Arms

3. No Crop tops

Well, as you’ll  soon see I said nuts to that and so I’m wearing what want!

I spied these bold HORIZONTAL striped shorts on the Eloquii site and had to have them (yes, let me say it again, I have the audacity to wear horizontal stripes…and whomever doesn’t like it can stay mad lol).  Undoubtedly, these shorts are the star of this outfit.  These shorts are uber comfortable, are made of a polyester – spandex mix, have a side zipper and have POCKETS!!!!!!GT reEdited IMG_2163

The shorts are generously cut giving my ample derriere lots of room but that poly- spandex mix I mentioned earlier means that these shorts hug my curves wonderfully!GT reEdited IMG_2320

I paired my cute shorts with this black tank top.  I love this top from bad ass retailer Rebdolls.  It’s cotton so its hella breathable and of course its cropped!Edited IMG_2205

2016 Spring and Summer Trends

The flowers are blossoming, the sun is shining brighter each day and we couldn’t wait to jump into the season in style!  The ladies of Fab Four Fashion decided to give you a little taste of some of the hot spring and summer trends that will be a prerequisite for keeping it cool this season!

Gail’s Look

Thank goodness the warm weather has finally arrived!  It’s finally time to store away the winter coats and boots and pull out the colourful clothing.

4F-3004_edited

I’ve purchased this royal blue skirt with net detail on the Eloquii site some time ago.  The netting detail is to die for and was seen on all of the runways.  From Proenza Schuler, Alexander Wang to Cushnie et Ochs netted clothing pieces are the thing for Spring.

4F-3024_edited

I paired my royal blue skirt with a seafoam blue netted top from Old Navy. I love the play of colours and it puts me right in the spring-time mood!  The netted skirt is a midi length on me and the waistband has an elasticized waist so its super-duper comfortable.  I completed my look by adding these striped pumps and this fun colourful necklace.

Trends. They come and go. While some are adamant about never following trends, I think they can be fun to partake in. While I wouldn’t break the bank for any trendy pieces, I like to incorporate them into my wardrobe every now and then.

DSC_3164_edited

The cold shoulder trend is all the rage right now, and I’m loving it. It was seen all over the runways from Proenza Schouler to Derek Lam. This is a subtle (and sexy!) way to show some skin this summer. Since my cold shoulder top is a crop top, I decided to pair it with high wasted pants. This way, my middle section isn’t Aaalllll out. Just a peak of skin just how I like it.

4F-3101_edited

I know that the post is supposed to be about the top but these pants, my tall sisters, are the truth. I’ve written about them before, but I still love them so very much! Fit on point, great color and, of course, the length is perfect! ZARA continues to impress me as I’ve spotted some pants with a 39″ inseam!!! These work perfectly for my long long gams. This is proof positive that we can’t always discount “regular” stores. And while the struggle is indeed quite real, sometimes, it’s worth just giving it a try.

4F-3084_edited

I was channeling my inner Carmen Jones baby! And while I didn’t have flowers in my hair, I decided to have them on my feet! Lol. With that and a red lip, I’m ready to take on the summer!

DSC_3272_a_edited

I couldn’t wait to put my winter jacket and boots away and transition into a lighter, more colorful wardrobe.  Since I’m always craving color, when I happened upon this colorful cape blazer I knew I had to have it. The search for this cape blazer actually started a few months ago when I first saw it on the Simplybe US and Simplybe UK websites. The only hiccup is that these 2 sites don’t ship to Canada. Well, since my middle name is “fighter” cause I never give up without a fight lol, when my American cousin said he was coming to visit us in Canada the light bulb went off in my head and I ask my good ol cuz to get it for me. Side note the blazer had gone down in price by 75% so I was even more eager to get it.
DSC_3229_edited

When I finally got the blazer I couldn’t stop looking at myself in the mirror, I loved it so much. The mix of colours in the stripes are a perfect combination.   This blazer is a big statement and a great addition to my spring and summer wardrobe.  The stripe pattern of my blazer reminds me of some of the pieces seen in Christian Siriano and Clover Canyon’s Spring and summer 2016 collections.

DSC_3264_edited

The blazer is by a company named Lavish Alice, and I must say, they make great pieces. I actually discovered them through ASOS, so now I will definitely be checking them out on a regular basis!

To keep the focus on my blazer I wore a simple black tank top, my black high-waisted pants and topped it all off with my blush pumps and I am ready for the warmer weather.

Spring is one of my most favourite times of the year. It’s like the build-up to the climax in a great movie; the delicious appetizer before the main course, or the beginning cords to that track you love to sing along to or dance to in the club– you catch my drift;-)

With spring comes some new trends, some timeless ones and sometimes those that are just making a revival! The spring trend I’m just loving right now is the low slung wide leg trouser. This trend calls to everything that is just me: low waist line, uber relaxed fit and looking effortlessly pulled together yet just a little boho!

DSC_3309_edited

Putting this look together was super simple. I started with a colour palette that I just love any time of year (i.e. grey), and slid into these wide leg trousers. The low slung look works so well for me since, more often than not, my trousers are a little big in the waist. This look means one less trip to the tailor!lol

4F-3352_edited

I then added a simple tank top and this oversized coat to complete the look. Then I moved on to accessories!!! I wanted to elevate this look with some bling, so I added this gorgeous necklace, kept the earrings simple, and added a large cuff. You can easily add a great colourful handbag to this look to give it some extra pop (and that is how you will see me when I rock this look in the streets of the 6ix:-)

And with that, I was ready to head out for drinks with the crew!

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Nancy’s Look

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

Judy’s LookJS IMG_9886

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.

Leslie’s Look

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!

Twirling in a Tutu

Tutus and tulle skirts have always been part of my wardrobe for as long as I can remember.

As a child my mommy used to make me wear these beautiful dresses with a tulle skirt underneath to give me extra puffiness. So it’s not a surprise that I love tutus especially the ones with more layers of tulle.

I have been looking for the perfect black tutu skirt but just couldn’t find one that I loved. While perusing Instagram I saw my girl Jessica Kane, CEO of Skorch magazine and Creative Director of Society-Plus, rocking a fabulous tutu skirt, so I decided to reach out to her and TADA!!!!!  I finally found the perfect black tutu skirt!

I must admit, I was a little anxious to receive the skirt. I really wanted it to be as voluminous as possible and was concerned that it wouldn’t be. Alas, I’m happy to report that the skirt is everything I was expecting and more! I went with the Premium Tutu skirt which boasts 5  luscious layers of premium tulle. The fit is true to size, and the sizes run from 1x to 6x. I also love the fact that there is an elastic band at the waist to give you room to breathe.

I think tutu skirts are a great addition to a women’s wardrobe. You can create a simple look by wearing it with a shirt or t-shirt. Or you can wear it under a skirt or a dress to give you added volume like I did in our Fashion Week 2016 post (seen here). However, for today’s post I decided to wear my skirt with a stripe black and white t-shirt and a black and gold belt.

Since I was feeling very feminine and flirty, to elevate my look, I wore my gold jacket and added black pumps with gold studs. I can’t wait to see if Society- Plus comes out with this skirt in other colors cause let me tell you, I will definitely be scooping up a few more of them!

Well, as Cindy Lauper sang: “girls just wanna have fun “, and believe me, I’m having  fun twirling around in my  tulle skirt.
