Height Goddess Tall Charlie Blouse

Tall Clothing Review: Height Goddess Charlie V-Neck Blouse

My Tall Specialty Shop Challenge is humming right along and today I bring you one of the items that I bought for March – the Charlie v-neck blouse in the “tote basket” color from Height Goddess.  The fabulous Lameeka Weeks launched Height Goddess several years ago and the line includes a trendy collection of jeans, blouses, dresses, graphic tees and pants.

I was in the market for a neutral, blank-slate type of blouse because I had recently discarded two such blouses that I’d worn to tatters.  But no way no how did I want my new neutral blouse to be blah and boring.  It needed to have a little pizzazz and character.  This Height Goddess blouse – with its deep v-neck, gathered cuffs, flowy draped sleeves and subtle hi-lo hem – is anything BUT boring.  The Charlie v-neck is currently on sale and I’m not sure I’ll be able to resist buying the top in one of the other pretty colors it comes in!

I created a transitional spring look by rolling up my tall J.Crew Reid jeans, throwing on my Paul Green sandals and layering a couple of necklaces (the navy and gold one was a fabulous gift from my mom-in-law).

Speaking of spring, the blouse also pairs perfectly with an orange textured skirt (Ann Taylor tall) and my mixed metal necklace from Noonday Collection.

For a more business-like look, I threw on my Ann Taylor tall teardrop lace skirt, my super elderly peep-toe pumps from Nordstrom and my trusty Loft crystal pendant necklace.

And last but not least, I tried it with my bow belt.

Versatility: One of the things I learned from the Putting Me Together blog during my Project Remix style challenge was that the versatility of a top should not only be judged by how many items of clothing it can be paired with but also whether I can tuck it, tie it or belt it.  As you can see in the photos, this top can be paired with skirts and jeans and I would also wear it with dress pants and under a blazer.  More importantly, I can wear the top untucked, tucked or belted.  And the neutral color is just begging to be accessorized with pretty necklaces.  So many options! Hooray!
Fit: I ordered a small but do kind of wish I had ordered a medium since this might have given me a bit more length in the body of the blouse.  On the other hand, a medium may have been too baggy so I think the small was a good choice for me.  The sleeves are a perfect length and I like that the hi-lo hem gives a little extra coverage on my hiney.
Special Details: The deep v-neck, gathered cuffs, flowy draped sleeves and hi-lo hem all add a feminine charm to the blouse.  Mr. L3 has commented a few times that he likes the top on me so it’s definitely a keeper!
Wearability: Even though it has long sleeves, the blouse is lightweight and I foresee myself wearing this blouse in all seasons (except for the heat of summer).
Your turn…
Have you ever shopped with Height Goddess?  How was your experience? Do you gravitate toward  neutral, “blank-slate” shirts that mix well with different accessories and clothing items in your closet?

    This blouse is adorable on you! I love all the ways you styled it, too. I especially like it with the lace skirt. I'm always so timid when it comes to trying new brands, so your reviews are insanely helpful!

      Thanks Missy! It makes my day that you're finding the reviews helpful. I understand the timidity. I basically had to give myself no choice but to try new brands by embarking on this challenge otherwise I probably would have stuck with my habit of buying from the big brands. So far, I'm having great luck with the tall speciality shops. Yay!

    I really like the top with the black jeans and long gold and black necklace. but they are all good looking outfits. You are seriously inspiring me to go through my closet and purge! My loving daughters have assured me that they will be helping with that process:)
