Tall Shopping in Switzerland - I Love Tall boutique

Tall Shopping in Switzerland – I Love Tall Boutique

Another tall shop visit is in the books and it was an oh-so-fabulous experience.  In October, the husband and I jetted off on a weekend getaway to Zurich Switzerland  – home to world class chocolate, luxury watches and the tall boutique I Love Tall.  I had already included I Love Tall (formerly called Copper Couture) in my tall shopping road trip through Germany and Switzerland and, awhile back, I noticed some reviews of this tall boutique’s clothing on Susi’s Munich-based tall blog.  Since I knew I’d be heading to Zurich and would be wanting to partake of some tall shopping in Switzerland, I […]

Tall Specialty Shop Challenge

Recap of my 2015 Tall Specialty Shop Challenge

2015 has come and gone which means my Tall Specialty Shop Challenge is now complete! Just to refresh your memory, this challenge involved only buying from companies that exclusively sell tall women’s clothing from February-Decemebr 2015.  My purpose was to see if all of my fashion needs could be met by tall speciality retailers, to discover new tall shops and also to introduce these fabulous “tallpreneurs” to my readers. In case you’re curious about such things, none of the items featured in this shopping challenge were gifted to me – I bought all of them with my own pennies. While I do occasionally receive and review gifts from […]

38″ Inseam Pants with Zipper Detailing

And now for the very last review in my Tall Specialty Shop Challenge! Remember my 38″ inseam gray jeans from tall shop Copper Couture in Zurich? Well it just so happens that I bought not one but TWO pairs of 38″ inseam pants on my little shopping spree. Can you say tall girl JACKPOT!?! In addition to the length, these pants have a lot of others things going for them. First, they are made of the softest pima cotton I have ever felt. I seriously wish I could use the pants as a blanket. Whenever I’m wearing them around a friend, I […]

Talltique Review

Talltique Review! My Black Friday Steals

2015 may be winding down but I still have some Tall Speciality Shop Challenge purchases to show you including another Talltique review. My very first purchase in this shopping challenge was my beloved faux leather bomber jacket from Talltique, so it seemed fitting that some of my last purchases in the challenge also be from Talltique. After taking a chance and falling in love with my ruana wrap this fall, I decided to order a similar piece from Talltique – a burnt orange drapey sweater vest. Similar to my ruana, I’m still figuring out how I want to style this […]

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 […]

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 […]

6 Month Update: Tall Specialty Shop Challenge 2015

Wowee! Where is 2015 going? I am now six months into my Tall Specialty Shop Challenge and it’s been quite a ride so far.  Just to refresh your memory, this challenge involves only buying from companies that exclusively sell tall women’s clothing for all of 2015 (well for most of 2015 since I started the challenge on February 20).  My purpose is to see if all of my fashion needs can be met by tall speciality retailers, to discover new tall shops and also to introduce these fabulous “tallpreneurs” to my readers.  I hope that my reviews over the past 6 […]

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 […]
