An Azazie Fairytale

grp-img_1391

What more can we say about Azazie? Considering that we have teamed up with them for a second time attests to the fact that we are big fans. Azazie is your go to dress shop, from bridesmaids dresses to cocktail dresses, especially since each gorgeous gown comes in every size, and a wide array of colors to choose from. It’s simple as 1-2-3: 1. Fall in love with a dress 2. Enter your measurements (and that’s multiple measurement points to ensure perfect fit!) 3. Rock your gorgeous dress. It’ll never be too big, small, short or long!

But don’t take our word for it, judge for yourself! Take a peak at our pictures, but then again you would have to see the dresses in person to truly witness how beautifully crafted they are.

Ethereal. Astonishing. Regal. These are some of the few words that people will use to describe you when they see you in your Azazie dress! Whatever your style, they have it. From floor length to short, conservative to skin-flaunting, there is something for everyone. If you’re like me, your biggest problem will be to choose just one!

nd-img_0167

Tall girls, attention please, attention please. With Azazie, your dresses will never, and I mean never, be too short. I always said that I would never complain that a dress is too long, and this one is veeeery long. I am wearing 4in sandals and there isn’t ever a toe in sight! Could this be the very first time in my life that I get anything hemmed???? Naaaaahhhhh LOL.

This dress is beautifully crafted and no detail is spared. The bodice is perfectly fitted all while taking into account your bust size (so much so that wearing a bra is totally optional – the girls will stay put and no fear of wardrobe malfunctions).

Only warning I have for anyone thinking of getting an Azazie dress: be prepared to dazzle everyone. All eyes WILL be on you so head high, shoulders back and sway them hips!

I really love Azazie for the fact that no matter your size, height or body shape, you can find a beautiful dress in a size you!

This sequin number is making all kinds of noise.  I love sequins so there was no doubt that I had to have this gorgeous dress plus this dress is completely customizable.

gt-img_0516

Simply enter in your measurements, Azazie walks you through this process, and boom your dress is in your hands in a matter of weeks.

gt-img_0562

The fit of the dress is spot on.  The sweetheart neckline is very flattering and the length is perfect as the dress puddles beautifully on the ground.  The dress also comes with built in boning so you really feel held in.

To stylify my look (yes, I know stylify is not a word LOL), I added this black faux fur stole, large silver dangly earrings, and silver pumps.  Just like that, I’m looking like the blak Mae West! LOL

Red carpet ready; that is how I would have to describe this gorgeous gown. Azazie has done it again, creating a beautiful made-to-measure gown that fits my every curve to a T. No need for that trip to the tailor when it comes to an Azazie garment. So long as you know how to use a tape measure, you’re good as gold!

lt-img_1003

I selected this particular piece as I love the silhouette it gives me, highlighting my curves and how it exposes my shoulders. I also love this eye-catching shade of yellow which sets you apart from the crowd. Some people tend to leave those vibrant colours behind with the onset of winter. In my opinion we need them more now than ever to counteract those grey days!

lt-img_1294

My accessories were oh so simple for this look. Big sparkly earrings, a blinged out bracelet  and a couple of bold bobbles for my fingers and I was ready to walk the red carpet at any formal event!

Lately I have been in the mood for the color yellow. From bright lemon to the color of sunshine I’m here for it. This time around I chose a dress in a marigold color.

js-img_0694

This color compliments my skin tone so well that I feel like a ray of sunshine. I chose this dress named the Fatima Bridesmaid which is a sweetheart neckline, A-line cut dress with straps that come close together, and is attached with a button at the back. This dress is floor length and even in heels you cannot see my feet, which elongates my silhouette.

js-img_0899

This dress fits my body very well. I love the fact that there is boning around the boob area, which gives me real support even with my strapless bra. The chiffon material flows beautifully and makes me feel like I’m floating when I walk. I am extremely satisfied with this dress. I can’t wait to wear this gown for a wedding or an elegant gala.

To complete my look, I kept it simple with long gold earrings and a gold bracelet.

With that said, Cinderella ain’t got nothing on me!

We are always impressed when women go for their dreams and this is exactly what Fike Ayeni did with Ziza Boutique. She saw that there was a need for individuality and diversity in the fashion landscape and she decided to do something about it. We are so glad she did!! She goes to the ends of the world (literally) to provide her customers with beautiful garments. Do yourself a favor: sit back, relax and enjoy the greatness that is Ziza Boutique.

Another gem found when Fab Four Fashion discovered the online boutique Shop Ziza, and we were ecstatic when  we realized that Shop Ziza catered to straight, plus and tall sizes.

While driving on the way to meet Fike, the owner of Ziza boutique,  I didn’t know what to expect.  I immediately felt relaxed and at ease when we  were greeted   by the  gorgeous and stylish owner Fike. The boutique is located in the basement of her beautifully welcoming home and is all at once chic, inviting and sets the stage for a truly wonderful shopping experience.

JS IMG_5608

What’s so special about this in-house boutique is that each piece is unique, and that she only orders a few sizes in each piece.  Limiting the orders, minimizes the chance of running into someone wearing the same outfit as you.

JS IMG_5592

I felt like a kid in a candy store when I entered the boutique, perusing through all the clothing on the floor, and the additional hidden gems in the back room. This boutique boasts a wide variety of both straight and plus size pieces. I was fortunate enough to find several pieces that caught my eye, however, my heart was captured by this gorgeous short sleeve dress. Very different from what I usually gravitate toward. I love the light blue color with the combination of the floral pattern. This dress reminds me of Haute Couture Gucci runway. It’s very feminine, classy and bold all at the same time.

JS IMG_5624

To complete my look, I paired my dress with blush pumps and accessorized with silver bracelets and earrings.

Fike told us that she regularly travels to Europe to visit different merchants and bring back pieces that she thinks her customers will appreciate. Well I’m quite happy with exclusivity, and in my new dress I’m certainly ready to rip the runway of the main streets of Toronto.

Finding a new place to shop is always great. Finding a new place to shop which offers unique pieces is amazing. Finding a new place to shop that offers great pieces in all sizes is the best! If you’re as excited as I am, you need to check out Ziza Boutique.

ND IMG_5894

Have you ever been to an event only to find someone else wearing the same [insert piece of clothing] as you? Annoying right? Well when you shop at Ziza, the chances of that happening are slim to none. Shop Ziza came into existence for that very reason and being unique is its’ raison d’être.

When we stumbled on the IG page, we were immediately impressed with their offerings. Going to the boutique was even more impressive. Owner Fike Ayeni clearly has a great eye for fashion and curates pieces that will speak to the sophisticated women’s sensibilities.

She even thought about us long legged babes! Her Tall section is actually tall and the offer some great options – in both straight and plus sizes.

This dress was one of the many pieces that caught my attention. This satin dress has such a regal feel! I immediately pictured myself wearing it with goddess braid, big gold earrings and red lips while relaxing on the hilly coast of Santorini.  Gotta say, I’m quite pleased with the result of my vision, now I just need one of you to hook me up with a plane ticket! LOL

I further accentuated my waist with a thin gold belt and wore mustard pumps to have my must-have pop of color.

Stylish, unique and absolutely divine are apt descriptions of this fabulous dress I discovered from Ziza Boutique. Print perfection, subtly sexy and boldly beautiful, this dress combines all the elements I love in my clothing: cool print, funky details and a little dash of sexy!;-)

LT IMG_6416

But for me, Ziza Boutique was as much about the clothing as it was about the shopping experience. Picture it, a beautiful, relaxed setting, in which you have access to unique clothing and accessories, painstakingly selected by the owner, who has created a boutique experience that will leave you excited about the pieces, thrilled with the variety of sizes, and the assistance of the owner who has an amazing instinct for what will look perfect on your body type and shape! She was amazing!

LT IMG_6388

As I mentioned earlier, this girl does love herself some print, as they give me the look of that extra volume that I know you all know I’m always on the hunt for…AND with the fire engine red belt to accentuate my waist, my hourglass shape is amplified! The style of the dress is so simple, yet the added details of the volume in the sleeve, small key-hole opening at the neck and bold print all come together to make it a show stopper.

LT IMG_6374

Styling this dress could never be simpler. All I added was funky earrings, and a stand-out cuff (which is actually 2 cuffs stacked together). I kept the shoes neutral so as not to have them competing with the dress and I was ready for my close up, and ready to hit the town!

Picture it, you get the invite to the party of the season, the next question becomes what are you going to wear?  You rush to your closet and riffle through and quickly determine that a shopping spree is needed ASAP!  You’re best bet in finding a truly unique piece that no one else will have is the Ziza boutique!  Once again, we’ve found another fashion retailer that offers clothing for women of all sizes!  Hip Hop Hooray for that!!

Gorgeous does not begin to describe this beaded gown.  This form fitting dress hits me in all the right places-accentuating my curves beautifully.   As one moves closer to the bottom of the dress it flares out prettily so there’s a wonderful “swoosh” when I walk so I feel like the belle at the ball!

GT IMG_5810

The details at the top of the dress is equally beautiful.  The red and clear beads sown in at the neck make this dress nothing short of Oscar worthy!

GT IMG_5678

To complete my look I added simple silver studded earrings, blush coloured pumps and simple silver bracelets.  With that I’m ready to dance the night away.
