38" Inseam Jeans

38″ Inseam Gray Jeans – Two Looks for the Holidays!

Remember my tall shopping road trip through Germany with a bonus stop at Copper Couture in Switzerland?  I was thrilled to be able to pop into this tall boutique on my recent weekend jaunt to Zurich and was equally as thrilled to end my search for the perfect pair of gray jeans.  Once I tried on these 38″ inseam gray jeans, felt how stretchy and comfy they were and almost fell over when I noticed that I had a nice bit of extra fabric at the ankle (which never happens, right?), I knew they needed to come home with me. Gray is […]

Long Elegant Legs Review Tall Sweater

Tall Textured Sweater – Long Elegant Legs Review

I’ve been having really fantastic luck with the Long Elegant Legs fall collection.  As part of my Tall Specialty Shop Challenge, I recently purchased three items from LEL, and I’m really excited by how nicely they all play together.  Take the gray Olivia sweater that I’m reviewing today for instance.  You already got a peek at it when I wore it under my Long Elegant Legs ruana wrap.  I’ve also been wearing this textured sweater layered over button-up shirts like my LEL tall chambray top as shown in Long Elegant Legs’ Top Looks page. Speaking of “top looks”, make sure you check out the LEL […]

How to wear a ruana wrap

Cozy Chic! Echo Ruana Wrap From Long Elegant Legs

Every now and again, I try to push myself out on a fashion limb by buying something out of my comfort zone.  That’s what I did when I bought the Echo New York ruana wrap from Long Elegant Legs as part of my Tall Speciality Shop Challenge.  When I first saw the cozy, blankety looking ruana wraps on LEL’s website, I thought “Hmmm…rrrrrruuuuuannnaaa! That’s kind of fun to say but what the heck is it”?  According to my research assistants Googs and Wiki, a ruana is a poncho-ish garment typically found in the Andes region of Venezuela and Columbia used not only as […]

BR Tall Trench Coat

Tall Trench Coat From Banana Republic

I really need to stop devouring food from outdoor markets whilst wearing my nice coats. I’ve had my tall trench coat from Banana Republic for years and have worn it all over the world from Asia to Europe to the U.S.  I love the way I feel in it – the way the belt perfectly defines my waist, the longggggg sleeves, the smart collar – it’s a classic and classy wardrobe staple!  Today, I managed to get a grease stain on my trench while eating a to-die-for grilled cheese at an outdoor food market, and I’m not sure if I’ll be […]

Majesty Peacoat Review

J.Crew Majesty Peacoat – My Cool Weather BFF

Raise your hand if you enjoy this time of year because you get to peruse all of your coats that have been tucked away at the back of the closet for spring and summer!  I’m not sure why tall coats thrill me so much but it’s probably because I never really had the chance to wear them when I lived in California so I still find them quite novel. This will be my third year wearing my trusty tall J.Crew Majesty peacoat.  I was looking through some old photos the other day and realized that this coat has been my cool weather […]

LEL Tall Chambray Shirt

Tall Chambray Shirt – Long Elegant Legs Review

I’m a bit late to the chambray party but now that I’ve bought my first piece I think I’m hooked!  As part of this year’s Tall Specialty Shop Challenge, I bought the tall chambray shirt from Long Elegant Legs, and I pretty much want to wear it every day.  The 100% cotton fabric is wondrously soft and lightweight which makes it perfect for late summer and early fall. The length of the shirt is just right so that it doesn’t look sloppy when worn untucked (but is also long enough to easily tuck in).  Sometimes, LEL styles seem to run a bit large and […]

Long Tall Sally tall blouse tassels lace

Long Tall Sally Review: Tassels and Lace!

Tassels, lace and pintucks! Oh my! I’ve found the perfect, pretty travel top for fall and not only is it comfy but it also has fabulous  eye-catching details.  Long Tall Sally kindly gifted me this lovely tunic, and I happily took it for a spin this weekend to see how well it would hold up whilst traveling on the train to and from the Rhine River. When I travel, I always keep two things in mind: 1) comfort 2) style Under #1, I would also add stipulation 1(a) which states that my top must be long enough to avoid any flashing of my knickers at […]

Tall Clothing Review – Amalli Talli Striped Tall Tunic

I am thrilled to bits to bring you the latest purchase from my Tall Speciality Shop Challenge – a fabulous button-up tunic from tall fashion newcomer Amalli Talli.  Ever since Amalli Talli launched its online store, I’ve been oogling all of the refreshingly on-trend clothing and just knew I had to get some of these styles in my closet. Since my heat-averse self is a bit obsessed with 100% cotton (and linen) at the moment, it should be no surprise that I zeroed in on this 100% cotton tall striped blouse.  At first glance, this blouse may look very proper (and maybe […]

Tall Floral Maxi Dress

Tall Shopping Trip Part 2 – Review of LTS Button-Up Mixed Print Maxi

Since it’s the end of July, it’s high time I review one of my Tall Speciality Shop Challenge purchases from June.  I already shared my mom’s fabulous finds from our Long Tall Sally shopping spree and now it’s my turn. My main shopping mission was to find a couple of wear-anywhere-in-sweltering-weather dresses for my hot summer vacation in Italy.  Of course, I had stalked the LTS website and had some ideas about what I wanted to try on when I arrived at the store. This black and white LTS mixed print button-up maxi has quickly become my summer go-to!  There is so […]

Tall Shopping Trip Part 1 – Visit to a Long Tall Sally Store with Mom

My mom came to visit me in Europe for a splendid 2+ weeks.  She just left a couple of days ago, and I’m crying in my beer wine because I miss her something fierce, but at least I can console myself by going through the 9837453980578932 photos from her visit. We definitely covered some major turf during her trip visiting 3 countries and several interesting sites.  More importantly, we trekked to a Long Tall Sally store and spent a sublime two hours shopping until we dropped.I just love that LTS has fabulous styles that are suitable for a broad age range […]
