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 […]

Otto+Ivy Review – Tilly Boots

Back in the olden days (around 12 years ago) before I even started blogging, I discovered the fabulous and witty tall blog All the Tall Things written by 6’2 Laura Schofield. It has always been my all time fav blog! Fast forward to 2015 and I was thrilled to bits to meet up with Laura and fellow blogger Sara of Girl in the Pretty Dress for brunch in London. And then fast forward to 2020 when Laura launched her UK-based shoe brand Otto+Ivy featuring gorgeous ethically made boots, heels and flats for tall ladies.  I can’t believe it took me […]
