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 […]

Hand Crafted and Made-to-Order Clothing for Tall Ladies – Interview with Eryn Shields from CAS Clothing

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that I like to impose shopping challenges on myself. Wayyyy back in 2012 (doesn’t that seem like eons ago?), I embarked on my “Shopping Custom Challenge” which involved buying at least one custom made item per month for a few months. I bought items from 4 different companies and scored a pair of jeans and two pretty tops that I still wear to this day. When I noticed that tall fashion newcomer CAS Clothing offered both ready-to-wear and made-to-order clothing for tall ladies, I knew I had to […]

Navy and White Polka Dot Top – One Piece Many Ways Linkup

Audrey over at Putting Me Together is having a “One Piece Many Ways” Linkup today. Woohoo!  These are some of the photos that I featured in my guest post at TallSnob.com but I figured it’d be fun to share them again here for the linkup.  The versatility of this navy/white custom made Capiche by Victoria polka dot top kinda knocks my socks off and makes me happy! So far, I’ve been able to wear this top with tan pants, bright orangeish pants, an orange skirt, green pants, jeans/orange blazer, jeans/brown blazer boots, a white skirt, grey pants/orange cardigan and have worn […]

Shopping Custom Challenge – Quincy Apparel (and a Dress Shopping Rant)

October’s buy for the Shopping Custom Challenge was the Elliott Blazer and Elliott Sheath dress from Quincy Apparel. I need a new suit for work and figured these would work well together and as separate pieces. They were both LOVELY but didn’t fit so back they went via Quincy’s (very convenient) free return shipping. Quincy’s sizing is a bit unique in that you take a “fit quiz”and the system tells you that you’re a 36A/B or 38C/D etc. for tops/dresses and 30 Tall (in my case) for bottoms. The 36A/B Tall Elliott Sheath was too loose up top but super […]

Interview with Victoria from Capiche by Victoria – Shopping Custom Challenge

I have oodles of respect for people who start small businesses in these (not so) jolly economic times.  I’m SO excited about the “tall” small businesses that I’ve discovered and this excitement makes me want to do my part in supporting them both on the blog and with my pocketbook because I NEED AND WANT these businesses to stay around. Love Me Forever Polka Dot Top from Capiche Enter Capiche by Victoria – a made-to-order fashion collection available online.  The owner/designer, Victoria, is 6’2 so you can bet your sweet bippy that the clothes she designs will look fetching on […]

Shopping Custom Challenge Part 4 – Capiche by Victoria

I’ve been out of commission with pneumonia for 3 weeks but FINALLY felt spunky enough to play dress up today.  Good thing since I’ve been doing a little too much online shopping whilst lounging in bed and am very backed up on my blogging. As you know, I’m smack dab in the middle of my Shopping Custom Challenge where I buy one custom made item per month.  September’s buy was the Love Your Forever polka dot top from Capiche by Victoria. I’m a sucker for polka dots (especially those of the white on navy variety) so after much deliberation about […]

Shopping Custom Challenge – eShakti – Mixed Luck

Shopping Custom  Challenge – Part 3 My dress, top and skirt from eShakti arrived a bit ago and I really should have had Mr. L3 take video of me trying to get the dress and top on. No matter which way I squirmed and contorted, I absolutely could NOT get the dress on for the life of me. It would have helped if the dress had a zipper that went all the way to the top instead of just a partial side zipper. O well. It’s all part of the adventure. Moving on to the ruffly top, the fabric has no […]
