New Tall PJs Brand – Lola Long

While I’m excited for all of the new tall brands that have launched this year (or will soon), I am particularly giddy about new tall sleepwear brand Lola Long for a few reasons – the PJs are ethically and sustainably made and are produced in my home state of California to boot. I have SUCH a hard time finding PJS that tick all the boxes but these do – perfect length, comfy, feel good on my skin, not frumpy looking and responsibly made. Lola Long kindly gifted me a pair of PJs to try in June. Read on for my […]

Custom-Made Tops from Kit – Project Replace My Favorites

Here’s a fun fashion trick to get more mileage out of your clothes! Go back in your camera roll to a time when you were regularly putting outfits together and take note of what you wore on repeat. I did this recently and was surprised by how much I wore my short sleeved white lace top when I lived in Germany and traveled all around Europe.  I unfortunately don’t have it anymore (and had actually forgotten about it) BUT after seeing how much mileage I got out of it over the span of 5 years, I knew I needed to […]

Zivaano Sneakers Review

Zivaano Sneakers Review – Cute, Comfy & Colorful!

You know what’s the worst?! Uncomfortable shoes! I made a BIG mistake in my recent 2.5 months of suitcase living by only packing one pair of marginally comfortable sneakers thinking I could get by with them. Well guess what?!? I grew to LOATHE them because they had minimal support and dug into my heels. Epic packing fail! As soon as I got to my new house in Germany and realized there were TONS of amazing walking paths in my neighborhood, I wasted no time in ordering these colorful beauties from Netherlands-based large-size shoe brand Zivaano. I’d had my eyes on these fun […]

Hye Fashion Review – Made-in-Canada Zip-Up Hoodie

This is the first article in my Project Replace My Favorites Series! The year is 2010. I am having a jolly scroll through my Twitter feed (which is so odd to me now because I’ve barely been on Twitter the past 6 or 7 years), and I stumble across a new tall activewear brand that makes its items in the U.S.  Intrigued, I place my first order (which you can read about in one of my very first blog reviews here). Fast forward a few years, and I have several items from this amazing brand (which then sadly went out […]

My New Fashion Challenge: Project Replace My Favorites

Did you know that I’ve been blogging off and on for over 10 years?! If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that I love to impose style challenges on myself. Over the past several years, I’ve done a “Shopping Custom Challenge” where I had to buy at least one custom-made item per month for 4 months, Project Remix where I focused on building a “remixable” wardrobe, my 2015 Tall Specialty Shop Challenge where I only bought items from independent tall shops for 10 months and my 2016 Thoughtful Shopping Challenge (which will continue for the […]

Jessica Rey Swimdress Review: Long Torso-Friendly Ethically Made Swimwear!

I’ve never been a huge fan of skimpy swimsuits…well at least as far as the bottoms are concerned. Even in my 20s, I gravitated more toward full coverage boy short bottoms or flirty skirt bottoms balanced out by admittedly skimpy bikini tops. In my 30s, I started experimenting with pairing my skirted bottoms with tankini tops, but I have yet to find one that I didn’t have to tug on every 5 seconds so tankinis generally annoy the heck out of me. I haven’t worn a one piece swimsuit since I was a teenager but decided to start searching online […]

Rothy’s Review – The Point Flats in Size 11.5 (One Year Later)

If you spend any time on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve likely seen ads for Rothys shoes. Or maybe you’re like me and you first got introduced to them when you noticed a friend wearing them. Either way, they have become very popular and with good reason! I bought a pair last year but have been a bit lazy about reviewing them, bad blogger that I am sometimes. Oops! Sometimes I feel like my procrastination is beneficial because I’ve now had the chance to wear these shoes a bunch and can provide oodles of details about them. Read on for my […]

Tall Mom’s Guide to Baby and Toddler Gear

Tall people often have a hard time fitting in in an average-sized world from squeezing into car or plane seats with laughable legroom to bonking our heads on all manner of things to the difficulty of finding clothing that’s long enough. Not surprisingly, it’s no different when tall people become parents! At some point during my pregnancy, I started frantically Googling things like “best stroller for tall people”, “best car seat for a tall toddler” and “best carrier for a tall baby”. Thank goodness for the interwebs and private tall FB groups where I found a wealth of info! I’m […]

Perfect for Spring! Tall Gingham Shirt from Allta

It’s been a few years since 6’0 Emma, owner of UK-based tall brand Allta, gifted me this beautiful wool blazer and I’ve been wanting more from this brand ever since! After I dipped my toe in the order-from-the-UK pool with my recent shoe order from Otto+Ivy and saw how easy it was to order from abroad, I decided to chance another UK order by buying the Aston gingham shirt from Allta. Sometimes you don’t know what’s missing from your wardrobe until you add an item and wonder where it’s been your whole life. That’s how I feel about this tall […]
