Tall Travel Style Piedmont

Tall Travel Style – Piedmont Italy (Take 2)

For the past several months, the husband and I have been planning a grand European adventure for our goods friends from the U.S. We loved Piedmont Italy SO much last year that we made that our first stop. While I didn’t get photos of ALL of my outfits because I was more focused on enjoying quality time with our friends, I did manage to snap a few outfit photos. Read on to see my tall travel style and, of course, some travel photos as well. Activity: Private wine and food tour in Piedmont with the fabulous Anna from Italianna  What I […]

MARGE Clothing Review

Tall Ethical Fashion – Blue Silk ANNI Blouse From MARGE Clothing

MARGE Clothing has been on my radar for well over a year, and I’m finally the proud owner of a lovely MARGE piece – the beautiful ANNI silk button-up blouse in poseideon blue. MARGE fills a unique void in the tall fashion world with its focus on luxurious, sophisticated apparel and ethical fashion. Since I am on the prowl for well-made investment pieces this year, I find MARGE’s vision to be quite refreshing and impressive. Keep an eye out for an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at MARGE’s production and sourcing in the near future. In the meantime, here’s a quick snapshot as to why/how MARGE fits into my Thoughtful […]

Tall off-the-shoulder top

Handmade Tall Off-The-Shoulder Top – Thoughtful Shopping Series

I’m super excited to bring you the first review in my Thoughtful Shopping Series. Remember my interview with Eryn Shields, the founder of CAS Clothing? Ever since the interview, I couldn’t stop thinking about the blue tall off-the-shoulder top with a peplum hem from CAS and just had to buy it! The main reason that my CAS Clothing top fits well with my Thoughtful Shopping Series is that it was handmade in the USA. Here are some more details: Who makes the items for CAS Clothing?  Eryn hand-makes all of the made to order (MTO) pieces and many of the in-stock pieces for […]

Thoughtful Shopping Series - Discovering where and how clothes are made

New Shopping Challenge: Thoughtful Shopping Series

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 for month for 4 months, Project Remix where I focused on building a “remixable” wardrobe and my 2015 Tall Specialty Shop Challenge where I only bought items from independent tall shops for 10 months. I’ve been mulling over what my 2016 challenge should be. Since we’re rapidly approaching the halfway point of the year, I guess I should get on it, […]

Long Tally Sally Outfit - Tall Blazer, Lace Top, Chelsea Boots

My Love Affair With Tall Blazers – Long Tall Sally Riding Jacket

Some may say that blazers are for old stuffy hoity toity fuddy-duddys, but I completely disagree. Adding a blazer to any outfit ups the chic factor and gives you a more put together look. My love affair with tall blazers just won’t quit and I’m always keeping my eye out for blazers with interesting details, fabrics and colors. When I spotted the Long Tall Sally riding jacket, it ticked all three of these boxes. Interesting details? How about the subtle metallic thread running through the fabric that gives the jacket a bit of shimmer when the light hits it the […]

Workwear for tall women - Long Tall Sally

Workwear for Tall Women (And Life Lately)

You may have noticed that things have been a wee bit quiet around the blog of late and I have 2 reasons for that: 1) I started a new job at the beginning of the month; and 2) I’ve had a somewhat entertaining round of bad luck trying to get some outdoor outfit photos. First, the bad luck! I have an outfit that I really want to show you and have tried and utterly failed on 3 different occasions to get photos of it outdoors. I wore it one day on our recent trip to France only to discover that […]

Tall brand launch - Diane Margaret

New Tall Brand Alert! Interview With the Founder of Diane Margaret

I’m excited to bring you an interview with Diane, the fabulous owner of new tall brand Diane Margaret. Diane reached out to me via email to let me know about her new venture and exuded such a positive and uplifting attitude that I knew I needed to learn more about her. I was also intrigued by her passion for environmentally and socially conscious fashion and my eyes perked up when I saw that she was planning to launch some golfwear soon since I had a terrible time finding golf apparel when I tried taking golf lessons to impress the husband a few years […]

Tall bomber jacket from Talltique

Tall Bomber Jacket – Out and About

Sometimes, I buy an item and am so caught up with “new buyer’s giddiness” that I don’t see any of its faults. Then, once the glitz and glam of the newness wears off, I realize that the item is not as good as I first thought it was. That’s certainly NOT the case with my tall bomber jacket from Talltique. I’ve had this super fun faux leather jacket a little over a year and am still very much head over heels for it. I still marvel at how long the sleeves are, love the fit and am also thrilled with how soft and easy to […]

Customized clothing for tall women

Hand Crafted and Made-to-Order Clothing for Tall Ladies – Interview with Eryn Shields from CAS Clothing

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that I like to impose shopping challenges on myself. Wayyyy back in 2012 (doesn’t that seem like eons ago?), I embarked on my “Shopping Custom Challenge” which involved buying at least one custom made item per month for a few months. I bought items from 4 different companies and scored a pair of jeans and two pretty tops that I still wear to this day. When I noticed that tall fashion newcomer CAS Clothing offered both ready-to-wear and made-to-order clothing for tall ladies, I knew I had to […]
