Studying my Closet – 4 Items to Buy in 2017

Do you ever stand in your closet and stare at your clothes? I know this probably sounds kind of weird and I don’t typically make a habit of it, but I found myself doing so the other day. I wanted to study the items in my closet that I find myself reaching for again and again when it’s time to get dressed so that I can figure out what I should buy this year. Here are a few things I noticed… I’m loving button-ups lately (and bonus points if they have patterns or texture!) I used to think buttons-up shirts were stuffy and […]

MARGE Clothing Outfit - Thoughtful Shopping

Thoughtful Shopping Update – Thrifting, 30 Wears and Favorite Pieces So Far

I’m way overdue for an update on my Thoughtful Shopping Series! The truth is I’ve been heavy on the “thoughtful” part and light on the shopping which I’m perfectly fine with. One of the shifts I’m noticing in my buying habits is that I’m slow as molasses in buying things now because I ponder my purchases for quite awhile.  If I do buy something, it’s usually because I really love the item, know it’ll fill a void in my closet and know I’ll wear it a ton. I can’t remember the last time I bought something impulsively. Since I haven’t been shopping much, I’m […]

Cycling to dinner in Copenhagen

Tall Travel Style – Cycling Around Copenhagen

The highlight of our trip to Copenhagen was being able to ride bikes EVERYWHERE. We rented bikes on the afternoon of our first day in town and kept them for the next 3 days. The bike lanes are super roomy and all over town making it very convenient and safe to get places. Being so active every day made me feel quite energized. I think it was a combo of the exercise, the breeze in my hair, the unpredictability of when we might get rained on and the thrill of exploring a new city. Read below for my adventures cycling around Copenhagen.

Outfits for July 4th

Red White and Blue – 5 Outfits for July 4th!

Although I think it’s a fabulous color combo, I don’t often wear red, white and blue together. I’m not sure why considering I have tons of blue and white in my closet, along with a couple of fun pops of red.  While this is not one of my go-to color palettes, I ALWAYS look forward to putting together a red white and blue outfit for the 4th of July. Since starting my Thoughtful Shopping Series, I have been trying to make do more and more with what is already in my closet as opposed to shopping a ton. I had […]

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 Fashion Alert! Interview with Kaersten Cooper of MARGE Clothing

I first wrote about MARGE Clothing in March and have been excitedly following the progress of this new tall clothing company ever since.  On July 15, MARGE launched its first collection for fall/winter 2015 which includes some absolutely gorgeous one-of-a-kind pieces and certainly fills a void in the tall luxury clothing sector.  I had the opportunity to interview the founder of MARGE, 6’1 Kaersten Cooper, and our chat runs the gamut from from the inspiration behind the line, to fabric selection, to the challenges and rewards of being an entrepreneur, to advice for aspiring entrepreneurs and more!

5 Tips for Tall Women on Finding Long Formal Dresses

How do you feel when you get invited to a dressy event?  If you’re like me, you get a surge of panic, sprint to your closet and frantically rummage through your dresses to see if you have anything remotely suitable and long enough. Why the surge of panic?  Well, formal dresses for tall women seem to be a bit hard to come by.  If I’m going to wear a long gown, of course I want it to sweep the floor (or at least get reasonably close to the floor).  I definitely DON’T want to look like I’m ready to go […]
