Handmade Tall Off-The-Shoulder Top – Thoughtful Shopping Series

I’m super excited to bring you the first review in my Thoughtful Shopping Series. Remember my interview with Eryn Shields, the founder of CAS Clothing? Ever since the interview, I couldn’t stop thinking about the blue tall off-the-shoulder top with a peplum hem from CAS and just had to buy it! The main reason that my CAS Clothing top fits well with my Thoughtful Shopping Series is that it was handmade in the USA. Here are some more details: Who makes the items for CAS Clothing?  Eryn hand-makes all of the made to order (MTO) pieces and many of the in-stock pieces for […]

New Shopping Challenge: Thoughtful Shopping Series

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that I love to impose style challenges on myself. Over the past several years, I’ve done a “Shopping Custom” challenge where I had to buy at least one custom-made item for month for 4 months, Project Remix where I focused on building a “remixable” wardrobe and my 2015 Tall Specialty Shop Challenge where I only bought items from independent tall shops for 10 months. I’ve been mulling over what my 2016 challenge should be. Since we’re rapidly approaching the halfway point of the year, I guess I should get on it, […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Holiday Outfits and Eats – NYC Trip

Mr. L3 and I just returned from a splendid trip to NYC and one of the highlights was DEFINITELY the food!  Here is a little tour of my “out-to-dinner” outfits. First Night Out – Dinner at Mas Farmhouse in Greenwich Village I kept it “dressy casual” for our first night out and wore my 382 Long Sleeve Blouse in Delilah from Tall Couture (reviewed here), my Ann Taylor (non-tall) skinny pants (more info here) and my waterproof suede Aquatalia boots. I would have preferred to wear heels instead of flat boots but navigating through hoards of people on uneven streets in […]
