Made in Germany dress from Paul & Piske in Hamburg

Made in Germany – Tall Clothing from Grossartig by Paul & Piske

Imagine strolling around a hip neighborhood in Hamburg exploring the little streets lined with funky boutiques, cafes and coffee shops and stumbling upon a window front that says “Atelier”. You peer through the window and see a couple of sewing machines and stacks of different fabrics and you wonder what kind of clothing is made there. Now imagine how exciting it would be to discover that the clothing sewn in this Atelier is for the shop Paul & Piske a few doors down which is owned by a tall mother/daughter team and one section of the shop is dedicated to […]

Looking Ahead: Plans and Thoughts for 2018

Lately, I’ve been asking myself how in the world it is possible that it’s already March! I’ve been thinking a lot about what 2018 holds from many aspects (personal life, blogging, fashion etc.) and figured I’d more or less journal my thoughts here. Leaving Europe I started 2018 feeling rather glum because I could no longer say “we’re moving back to the U.S. NEXT year”. Now our move is THIS year and I feel like it’s coming toward me like a freight train. We moved to Germany in December of 2014 and the experience of living in and traveling around […]

North Clothing Blazer and Paul Piske Dress

Made-in-the-UK: Tall Blazer From North Clothing

The husband teases me for my love of blazers but I just can’t help myself! They’re the perfect extra layer under a coat in winter and make me feel polished and put together when I’m wearing them on their own. I bought the made-in-the-UK tall blazer from North Clothing awhile back and am pleasantly surprised by how much wear I’m getting out of it! If you love the looks of this blazer too, you’re in luck because it’s currently deeply discounted in North’s January sale.  Read on to learn more about North’s story and to see a couple of ways […]

Tall Travel Style – 2017 Edition

Is it just me or did 2017 absolutely fly by? For me, it’s certainly been a whirlwind (albeit a whirlwind in the good sense). I just had a chance to look back at my photos from last year and loved reliving the memories of our last full year of living in Europe. I say last full year because we’ll be moving back to the U.S. later this year (but more on that later). I realized I only did two measly Tall Travel Style write-ups last year so I thought it’d be fun to show some highlights of how I wore […]

Thoughtful Gift Guide for the Holidays and Beyond

I have a bit of an odd relationship with Christmas thanks to the “interesting” (translation straight up weird) cult-like church that I grew up in. Christmas trees were considered idols so we weren’t allowed to have one lest we be tempted to dance around our house worshipping it. Exchanging gifts was also a no no and of course there was no Santa either. For all of the weirdness of this churchcult, I actually appreciate the way we celebrated (or rather didn’t celebrate) Christmas. Instead of exchanging gifts amongst ourselves, we usually focused on helping people who were in need. There […]

Striped fall sweaters from JuNi fashion

Tall Travel Style – Fall Sweaters from JuNi Fashion

You know what i love?! Fall fashion! And it’s even better when it’s tall fall fashion. I’m back with another installment of Tall Travel Style, this time showing how I’ve been wearing my fall sweaters from JuNi Fashion. When I first brought my purchases home, I felt like maybe they were a little too basic and boring and kind of wished I had bought at least one statement piece with a bit more flare. Now that I’ve had these sweaters for a couple of months, I realized that I keep reaching for them again and again when getting dressed in […]

One of the main reasons I enjoy blogging is because I have so much fun discovering new tall brands and then introducing them to all of you.

Today, I am thrilled to introduce you to tall fashion newcomer JuNi Fashion located in Frankfurt, Germany which launched in early 2017.

Made in Denmark! Made-to-Measure Gingham Dress from Tailor’s Tale

When I moved to Europe at the end of 2014, I never imagined my little blog would bring me so many fun and cool opportunities. I’ve already had the chance to meet up with fellow bloggers from the Netherlands, the U.K. and Barcelona, attend a gala dinner for the European meeting of tall people and to discover several awesome tall stores throughout Europe. Just when I thought my experiences couldn’t possibly get any better, I am now the proud owner of a lovely made-to-measure gingham dress from Tina, an amazing tailor and fellow tall lady located in Denmark. I connected with Tina […]

I’m thrilled to be back with another edition of my new Made In… Series. This time I am chatting with Helen Pappas, the owner of the Bethesda, MD based tall brand Talltique, about her made-in-the-USA Private Label items.

Helen kindly gifted me a Tall Crinkle Maxi Skirt from the Private Label to try, and I am so pleased with it! First, let me start by saying that I had to take this 49″ […]
