A Vested Interest in Curves

Melissa McCarthy is delighting us again with her fall collection for Penningtons!

gt-edited-img_6658

What caught my eye as I was perusing the Penningtons site were these oh so fresh to death skinny jeans.  The fit is spot on and they’re super comfortable.  I love the cool zipper details found on the ankles of the jeans as well.

gt-edited-img_6781

Next came this printed top. I really like the print and look forward to pairing it with other printed pieces in my wardrobe.  Because I’m on the short side of the height spectrum I elected to tuck in the shirt in at the front and left the shirt tail out at the back.

gt-edited-img_6612

Now we’ve got to talk about this vest.  I absolutely adore it!  It provides the perfect extra layer of warmth on a crisp fall day.  The vest is quite light weight so do fret my pet.

To complete my look I added bold silver earrings and black wedge boots.  Et voila, I’m ready to step out in style!

Dog Days of Summer

Grp Edited IMG_9589

Well ladies and gents, we are almost at the end of our fabulous summer. This year we were blessed with an extremely warm summer season and had days where the thermostat reached record highs. Since all good things must come to an end, Fab Four Fashion has decided to give you at least one more post (possibly two) relating to the summer and give you great options of what to wear until Labor Day weekend.

Nancy’s Look

ND Edited IMG_9928

End of August. Can you believe it?! Say it ain’t so!! Thankfully, the sun is still shining (for the most part!) and the weather is still sweet. As much as I love fall fashion, I want to play in my summer wardrobe just a little while longer.

ND Edited IMG_0105

This outfit is precisely how you’ll catch me running through the streets on an easy breezy day and is just one example of how you can transition your summer outfits for the coming season.

I got this dress about a decade ago (!!!) while on a wonderful trip to Barcelona with my bff (hey Myrsha!). The print is what first caught my eye. I love the colors and plaid is just a timeless classic.

ND Edited IMG_9839 nd

To make the color further pop, I paired my maxi dress with this perfect yellow jacket. This jacket is such an eye catcher and a statement on it’s own. It makes even the most simple outfits go from plain to fab.

Now excuse me as I go bake under the sun before it goes away for another 6 months…

Leslie’s Look

LT Edited IMG_0324

Can you believe it? Summer is almost over and I for one feel the need to make sure I wear all my summer clothes while the temperature’s still hot. It’s also a great idea to start looking at what you have in your personal “summer clothing collection” that can easily make the leap into fall.

LT Edited IMG_0251

This jumpsuit I scored earlier in the summer and just never had an opportunity to rock it on the blog. I fell in love with the print and the style, but I felt no rush to jump into this little number as I knew I could easily wear it as the days got a little cooler.

This piece is perfect for a day party or just hanging with friends. For the tall ladies out there, the length is a 32-inch inseam so that one is a little tricky. I let out the hem so I could rock it with a tiny heel (I just love my heels!!), but even then, the heel has to be a tiny one.

LT Edited IMG_0370

To polish off my look, I went with all gold accessories; as the buttons on the jumpsuit are gold, it felt apropos.  Funky gold earrings, gold cuffs and gold flat sandals rounded out the look.

This fall, you will catch me in this outfit with a moto jacket and cute kitten heels (in a nice vibrant colour!). I say hallelujah to pieces that can span 2 or more seasons!

Gail’s Look

Yes, another summer is slowly but surely bidding us farewell.  I wanted to wear an outfit that was carefree yet sexy all at the same time.

GT Edited IMG_9744 cropped

These dark skinny jeans from Forever 21 Plus are simply perfect!  They have some stretch making them very comfy and they hug my hips and derriere perfectly!

GT Edited IMG_1421

 

GT Edited IMG_1122

I added this yellow knit cropped tank top because…why not.  I love the colour against my skin and surprisingly I found this in the regular size section of Forever 21.  Ladies, don’t be afraid to try on some items that aren’t in the plus section because you never know if you’ll score a winner.  If it doesn’t fit, no big deal, just move on to the next item in the dressing room.

GT Edited IMG_9754 cropped

Last but not least came these leopard print heeled Vince Camuto sandals!  If you follow us on snapchat (FabFourFashion) you would have seen that I scored these bad boys at the Off Saks Fifth Avenue store at Halton Hills (essentially our Ontario equivalent to Woodbury Common in New York state).  These beauties are very comfy and I got them for only $40!!!!

Judy’s Look

JS Edited IMG_0568

Since this summer was very good to me (i.e. nice weather), I had the opportunity to wear my most colorful pieces of clothing. This year I told myself that I wanted to find the right pair of culottes. Yes, finding the right pair of culottes is a struggle, because I need something that doesn’t gather-up between my thick thighs.

JS Edited IMG_0739

Well, the search is over as I found the cutest pair of culottes online from Lane Bryant (YAY!). I was a bit hesitant as I’ve never ordered anything from them before, as well as, in the past, my not being able to find the right pair of culottes to fit my body properly. I’m excited to say that these pleated culottes fit me perfectly and there’s no gathering of material in the crotch area.

JS Edited IMG_0671

What I love about these pleated culottes is that they look like a skirt. The material is very light and flowy, and as a lover of prints and color, I couldn’t be happier with the polka dot print on them.

I kept my casual summer look very simple, as it is an outfit that I would wear to run errands, business casual for work, or brunching in the city. I paired my pleated culottes with a simple white tank top, and wore my light blue jean jacket, which has become a staple in my summer wardrobe. To finish off my look I wore my ultra-high but oh so comfortable beige sandals, put on my white sunglasses and I’m ready to casually cruise the streets of TO.

Fall Lookbook Part 3

gr IMG_1609

It is officially fall. The season of cooler temperatures, muted candy coloured leaves, and wood-smoke scented breezes. In this our third, and final, installment of our Fab Four “September Issue”, we bring  you layered looks to keep you styling and profiling this season!

Check out how the Fab Four “layer-up” for fall/winter 2015.

Gail’s look

Take my breath away…who remembers that way back track huh?  This song was the inspiration for my laid back relaxed look – Top Gun baby!  Picture it, I’m strutting confidently across the tarmac as fog rolls in with me wearing a gorgeous smokey gray leather jacket with wool collar trim!  I’ve got my aviators at the ready as I board my fighter jet!  Ok so I won’t be hopping onto any fighter jet but you catch my drift.  LOL

gt IMG_1497

The jump off for this look was the jacket.  This jacket is THE JACKET OF MY WHOLE LIFE!  I found it while perusing Beyond the Rack, an online sample sale site, and had to have it.  It was tucked away in the “My Curvy Closet” section of the site.  Once again, I really like how online sample sale sites are providing PERMANENT plus size clothing selections to better serve their diverse customer base.  See fashion industry it’s not hard!

gt IMG_1408

I love the fact that this jacket is cropped as it hits me right at the top of the hip so that my God given “ass-ets” aren’t hidden. LOL

gt IMG_1480

Speaking of assets, these denim jeans are the truth!  Once again, Old Navy came through for me.  Almost all of my jeans are from this store.  Now, I know finding the perfect fitting pair of jeans can be pure hell – trust I know the struggle is real but oh so worth it.

gt IMG_1468

These jeans are jeggings with some distressing detail.  The final touches are the aviators, of course, my wedge boots and a clutch to hold all my necessities.

Mr. Cruise I’m ready for my film debut in Top Gun 2.0!

Judy’s look

ju IMG_1204

I love the all black everything sexy, classy, chic look and I went for it. I occasionally struggle to find what I’m going to wear in fall.  I’ll turn my closet upside down trying to come up with something. To be honest I’m still trying to adjust to the change in temperature…I’m just not ready for the fall season. Lol

ju IMG_1303

With this look I went with the theory of less is more. This timeless look is perfect for fall and gave me that confidence without having to do too much. Investing in classic pieces is so essential especially on those days when you don’t know what to wear.

ju IMG_1245

For this look I went for a femme fatale look. I paired my pencil faux leather skirt with a simple fitted black turtle neck with a pair of black pumps and my ¾ tweed vest. To add a little excitement to my look I added a full earring cuff and my pink candy yum yum lipstick for the perfect pout.

Nancy’s Look

Tis the season for layering. Fall is so unpredictable, so having multiple layers is the best way to conquer the day. For this week’s edition of our lookbook, I was inspired by the boys! This is yet another trend of this season, but does it really ever go away though? As far as I’m concerned, menswear inspired looks are always in.

nd IMG_1772

Blazers are a fall must have. They go well with most things and, most importantly, it’s a stylish way to keep the chills at bay! I love this blazer because of its structure. I’ve had it for many years and it still looks fresh and current. I paired my blazer with this fun polka dot fitted boyfriend shirt. I can predict that this item will also have many wears!

nd IMG_1870

And finally, the star of this outfit is these booties! I found them at the Gap and did a little dance! I saw them at the store in a size 10. For an unknown reason, I decided to try them on. They didn’t fit, but surprisingly, they weren’t crazy tight! So I ordered them online in the size 11 (because of course they don’t actually carry the larger sizes in store… The Gap, please show us big footed babe some love by stocking our size in store please?!? *end rant* LOL). They are soooo comfortable, the color is awesome and I absolutely love them.

nd IMG_1717

One of the recurring comments found in the reviews section is that these boots make the feet look big. While that may be true, I came to terms with this sometime ago. Old Nancy would have returned the boots based on this alone. New Nancy says: Yes! I am tall and I have bigger feet! They allow me to go about my business and help support my statuesque frame, so I am not going to bash them! So I say, screw it, go on with your big feet! So whether it be stilettoes, kitty heels (they’ve been getting a beating lately… LOL), or shoes that make your feet look big, wear what makes YOU comfortable and happy! *gets off soap box* LOL

Leslie’s Look

What fall/winter season would truly be a fall/winter season without a little fur, or faux fur, to add warmth, texture and panache to a look! It can be the perfect opening volley for any outfit you plan to rock this fall. Then, add a foundation of black leather and some knock’em dead booties and ladies, ding-ding-ding, we have a winner!

lt IMG_1096

The catwalks were filled with fur and leather during last spring’s fall/winter fashion week shows and these decadent pieces were a feast for the eyes that I gorged on unrepentantly! And though I had a fun filled summer, I cannot say that I regret having to dress for the cooler temperatures when I get to slip into these sexy pieces.

lt IMG_1135

The foundation of this look is this leather long-sleeved shirt that I purchased many moons ago but continues to stand the test of time. The sleeves were originally more bell shaped, but I had my trusty tailor give them a little nip and tuck. I wanted to pull a little Tracee Ellis Ross action by doing leather top to bottom recalling the gorgeous leather jumpsuit she sported for the Billboard Music Awards, so I paired the leather shirt with these faux leather pants that hug my curves in all the right places.

lt 1150

Since I did not want this look to fade to black, I knew I just had to fall into the fur. This faux fur vest adds  another layer of texture and visual interest that helps to break up all the black. I added this skinny tan belt to help define my waist and my version of “Kinky Boots” that are the embodiment of   all things hot to me (ya, I guess you can say I kinda like ‘em;-)LOL

The accessories were simple: gold rectangular shaped earrings and this quilted shoulder bag and I’m armed and ready to meet cooler temperatures!

SexyPlus Clothing

Updated Sexy Plus Collage

SexyPlus Clothing is a jewel of a boutique located in Mississauga, Ontario offering beautiful plus size cocktail dresses and trendy plus size casual clothing in their store as well as online (and they ship internationally as well woohoo!).  How refreshing it is to actually be able to go to a brick & mortar store and try things on!

Stefanie Augusteijn, a former Montrealer like me, has worked tirelessly to create a boutique that is welcoming, fun, flirty and feminine.  Walking into her store was like being in a woman’s private boudoir.

IMG_9796 edited

Stefanie and her team thought of everything so as to create  a warm and inviting atmosphere.  The changing rooms are bright, large and complete with a good sized bench and an actual clothing rod to hang the many items one would want to try on!

I mentioned earlier that Sexy Plus Clothing offers cocktail dresses, which by the way are to die for, but Stefanie has worked to now include trendy casual pieces from jeans to printed tops and rockin jackets all at an affordable price!

IMG_6909 jeans Edited

This black v-neck top and denim jeans are perfect for a date with that special someone.  I love the ruching found across the mid section to cleverly disguise anything one might want to conceal.  I also really like the flutter sleeves as it lends even more feminity to the look.  The v-neck detail is contiued in the back as well.

IMG_6931 back of jeans Edited

These Allistyle skinny jeans are incredibly comfortable and I really like the fading detail found on the front and back.  What I also love about this look is you can easily dress it down by swapping out the top for a cute t-shirt or tank top with ballet flats and you’d be good to go for a day or shopping or just  running errands.

I’ve dubbed this next outfit “Rock Chic”.  The moment I clapped eyes on this blue faux suede jacket I almost started drooling!  This gorgeous, limited edition, Joseph Ribkoff jacket had me at hello! LOL

IMG_6960 ribkoff jacket

I love that its cropped and has snug yet still comfortable fit and gives my look even more edginess.  Being that I’m short and thus short in my torso, most jackets are a little longer than I’d like – not this one though, it was perfect!

These pull on crackle print jeggings, from Point Zero Curvy, are the bomb.com.  They hug you and all the right places….I feel as though the above picture should come with a warning “Danger: Curves Ahead!” LOL  Now, I’ve only known Point Zero for making straight sized clothing so I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they now design plus size clothing as well!.

As I stated earlier Sexy Plus Clothing carries a beautiful array of cocktail and evening gowns from companies like Igigi and Kiyonna Clothing.  Speaking of Kiyonna….this hot little number is beyond fabulous!  This dress makes all kinds of noise and I am here for it!  The ruching found on the sides of the dress hug my every curve beautifully and is very comfortable.  The length on the dress surprisingly hit the mark as it was not too long.

I took advantage of the deep v-neckline by pairing this dress gorgeous dress with a beautiful gold and stone encrusted statement necklace also found at the Sexy Plus boutique.

Jeans Anyone?

Gr - IMG_2330

Gr - IMG_2281

Jeans…denim… dungarees! A fashion trend that has spanned the globe and continues to be a favorite among young and old alike!  Invented over 100 years ago, jeans are that one fashion item that has run the gamut from being synonymous with the poor working class to a symbol of wealth and affluence solely based on the name on the label.  Talk about a fashion renaissance!  I know many women can have a love/hate relationship with jeans, but the secret is to not stop looking until you’ve unearthed the perfect pair. Don’t settle for anything else. They don’t need to be expensive; they just need to show off your heavenly curves! Check out what the ladies of Fab Four have on the jeans menu for you!

Gr - IMG_2341

Judy’s Look

Oohh chile, God knows I have been searching for a good pair of jeans that can fit my curvy body for the longest time. There are a few criteria that I look for in a good pair of jeans:

  • I like my jeans to have stretch. I want to be able to move and be comfortable in my jeans and I hate when I feel a pinch at the waist because the they is not stretchy enough.
  • I’m a sucker for skinny jeans, so I want pair of jeans that is either low rise or mid-rise and when I sit down I don’t want to have plumber crack LOL.  Raise your hand if you had this happen to you in the past LOL –  I’ve  definitely been guilty of this over the years.

J - IMG_2455

Well the search for me is over yay yay. I found 2 great pairs of jeans that meet all my requirements. I discovered this brand called Second Yoga Skin jeans and let me tell you that they are every curvy girls’ dream. Their price range varies from $90 to $160, and you can easily find them at Jean Machines.

J - IMG_2452

The second pair I found, which is the pair I’m rocking on the pictures, is from Old Navy. It’s called the Women’s Sweetheart Skinny jeans in long. They are regular price $39.50 but I got them on sales for $27! They fit me perfectly and I love that they come in short, regular and long. I always go for long cause I love wearing a nice pair of skinny jeans with heels.

J - IMG_2475

To top my look, I wore a sleeveless peplum top – I think that peplum tops are a great combination with skinny jeans especially for curvy girls like me. To further elevate my jeans look, I wore my salmon peep toe sandals and I added my favorite necklace.

Leslie’s Look

My all time favourite thing to wear? Simple; jeans and a tee baby! My love affair with dungarees began at a young age and I’ve been ever faithful to this seemingly timeless fashion trend. Baggy, skinny, synched, bell bottomy (is that a word), I think I’ve worn them all over the years and continue to build my collection!

L - IMG_2836

These skinny jeans by True Religion are my favorite pair right now! They have been broken in and feel like they are bespoke…customized just for my willowy frame! The distressed detail, which I gotta admit  took me a little time to get jiggy with, is now one of the things I like most about them!

L - IMG_2931

The flap pocket is perfectly placed to give the illusion that I’m packing a little more heat (i.e. junk in the trunk LOL) and the wash and skinny leg style let me easily transition this look from day time hang out gear to night time party wear! All I had to do with this look was take a simple white t-shirt and jeans and add a couple upgrades.

L - IMG_2861

Speaking of upgrades…this gorgeous cape blazer, of course reminiscent of Solnage’s   wedding outfit is the piece de resistance for this look. After this cape-jacket I didn’t even need shoes cause no one would have noticed!LOL But since I can’t go barefooted, I chose to finish the look with mint green pumps and a silver clutch. And of course, my sassy shades! Note to my tall girls on True Religion jeans. While I do love them, they are not always faithful to the tall girls! I sometimes have difficulty finding a pair that fit me in both waist and length. I had to go through a lot of frogs before I found my princely pair! But it was well worth the search! See ladies, we can all find our Prince, well, at least in jeans!:-)

Nancy’s Look

I love dresses and skirts like the next girl, but in my heart, just like my girl Leslie, I’m all about jeans and a tee! In fact, 9 out of 10 times that you see me running through the 6, I do so wearing some variation of jeans. I dig a good pair of boyfriend jeans, love my trouser jeans, but can never part from the skinny. They easily go from casual Friday to drinks with the girls, and you already know how I feel about multi purposed clothes!

N - IMG_2651

Now, we tall ladies KNOW that the quest for the perfect pair that is LONG enough is NOT an easy feat! Over the years, I’ve struck luck with brands like Levi’s, J. Crew, Old Navy and Alloy Apparel to name a few. Here, I’m rocking my very first pair of jeans from Topshop and I must say that I’m quite pleased!

N - IMG_2674

With a 36” inseams, gone are the days where I have to pretend that my jeans were supposed to be “cropped” LOL. These also have the right amount of stretch: enough that I do not have the dreaded gap at the waist (my booty endowed ladies will understand!!) and not too tight that said booty will get squished.

N - IMG_2583

This color loving chica swapped her rainbow for an all-black-everything look because, well, why not! I kept my look simple with a bandeau top, leather jacket (which got ditched as it got surprisingly hot!) and strappy sandals. Well, ok, I snuck some color in with the purse LOL I can’t help it!! I love to offset my almost all black looks with metallic accessories, and here, I did so with silver earrings, bracelet and this glorious necklace.

Gail’s Look

Jeans are that quintessential item in a women’s closet that are just a “no-brainer”.  With the variety of styles and washes available, jeans can go from dressed up chic to casual unique in a flash.  It all depends on how you want to rock them.   Moreover, their versatility works for all four seasons.

G - IMG_2983

I decided to on a lighter wash as my look was on the boho casual tip.  For those plus size ladies who are hesistant in trying a pair of skinny jeans why not try a pair in a darker wash?  This is not about hiding your body, merely playing with a trend on your terms.

G - IMG_2980

I paired my light coloured jeans with a white bodysuit and floral kimono.

G - IMG_3062

As I’m sure you all know, kimonos are one of the hot items for summer.  They offer coverage for upper arm for those cool summer evenings.

G - IMG_2960

I polished off my look with a taupe and peachy/gray leather hobo purse and taupe sandals.

White Plus Size Jeans: Day and Night

White Jeans Collage

White jeans, that dreaded item of clothing that full figured women are supposed to stay away from.  I even bought into that notion.  Well, I say nuts to that!  If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, fashion is supposed to be fun and so taking some risks isn’t going to affect the space time continuum.  So, watch as I remix my white skinny jeans for day time play and night slay.

Day Time Chic

For my day time look I wanted to play with different proportions.  I paired my white skinny jeans with a more “boxy” top in fire engine red.

gIMG_3183

gIMG_3160

These jeans have a great deal of stretch which makes them incredibly comfortable and the boxy top ends at just the right spot to offer a little coverage to the tummy area.

gIMG_3319

I finished the look with a hot pink purse, Tiffany necklace, silver wedges and my trusty aviator sunglasses.

Night Time Sizzle

For my night time look, I took it up a notch.  I swapped out my red top for a lace one.  Lace happens to be one of the big summer trends this year.  As I said before, fashion risks are a-okay and rules are meant to be broken.  Gone are the days of plus size women hiding in baggy clothes.

gIMG_3516

I exchanged my silver wedges for royal blue stilettos for a pop of colour.  Last but not least I added dangly earrings and a black & silver box clutch.

gIMG_3392

gIMG_3458

If you’re a little hesistant in only wearing a bra underneath the lace top you could add a body suit instead for a little more coverage.

Fab Four Fave: Kimono Krazy

Kimono Krazy 1

It’s Friday so it must be time for another edition of Fab Four Fave!  Gail is coming at us with what she is currently lusting after especially for summer!

Kimono Krazy 1

 

Kimonos, in every print, colour and style, have been splashed across glossy magazine pages as one of the “It” things for summer.  I must admit that initially I felt like these kimonos were just cute little bath robes but as I’ve mentioned before fashion is about having fun and trying out some articles of clothing you might not normally consider.

Kimono Krazy Part 2

This cute kimono is from City Chic and I was immediately drawn to it because of the blue coloured print.  Blue is one of my favourite colours so any article of clothing with blue in it will usually end up in my wardrobe.  These jeans are also from City Chic and look great with just about anything really.

Kimono Krazy Part 3

Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE HANDBAGS!!!  This obsession is never going away….ever LOL.  This fringe number from YSL has my name written all over it and as I’m sure some of you know fringe also happens to be one of the big trends for this summer as well.

Now, what outfit would be complete without some cute shoes.  We all know how much Kanye West loves the Maison Margiela and I can see why.  These stacked heeled sandals are just too die for.

 

Kimono Krazy Part 4A

Last but not least is what I call the “frosting” of an outfit.  Accessories play a big part in any outfit and can dress up or down a look.  For this outfit I wanted to glam it up a bit and went with all gold everything.  The shades, are so cool they’re hot.  The necklace is from PacSun, the gold studded headband is by Miu Miu.  The gold plated bangle is from Malene Birger and the ring is from Aurélie Bidermann.

 

Ta Ta for now!
