Long Tall Sally Review

Long Tall Sally Review! Spot Bow Blouse and Stitch Graphic Tunic

Remember my Long Tall Sally spot bow blouse and stitch graphic tunic that I sported during my trip to Vienna? Well I’ve been playing dress up with them and wanted to show you some fun ways to wear these items that Long Tall Sally kindly gifted me! LTS Chunky Stitch Graphic Tunic (c/o) Size: Small Fit: The tunic is loose enough to be able to wear a fitted long-sleeve layering tee underneath (making it perfect for chilly weather), but not so loose that it looks saggy baggy. I’m very happy with the fit! Special Details: The texture of the thick white thread woven […]

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 […]

How to style ankle boots

4 Ways to Wear Chelsea Ankle Boots

I’ve been hesitant to try flat ankle boots for fear that my size 11 feet would look like massive, manly leather-covered blobs. When Long Tall Sally kindly let me pick a couple of fall items to try, the classic brown Chelsea boot caught my eye and I decided it was high time I conquered my fear of ankle boots.  When I opened the shoe box, I gave the somewhat large looking boots a dubious glance.  Slowly and suspiciously, I took them out and put them on, felt how comfortable they were, admired how classy they looked and realized that my preconceived notion about […]

38" Inseam Jeans for Women

Tall Travel Style: Chateau Gawking in my Tallwater Jeans

A couple of weekends ago, we trekked over to the magical Loire Valley of France for some chateau gawking and general meanderings through the French countryside.  I was eager to take my new Tallwater Jeans for a test drive and ended up wearing them two different ways.  While I adore the jeans, I ended up kinda sorta loathing one of my outfits and loving the other. Overall, my Tallwater Jeans held up great for my excursions, were super comfortable and made me remember why it’s sometimes nice to shed my skinnies for a pair of bootcuts every now and again. […]

Tall Clothing Review: 38″ Inseam Slim Bootcut Jeans From Tallwater Jeans

I have a rocky relationship with Mr. Jeans.  I remember the first time I tried on skinny jeans, I forcefully yanked on the pants and put myself into all sorts of contortions in an effort to get the jeans on.  Despite all of my squirming, I was only able to get the jeans on as far as my knees. Ugh!  I finally gave up for fear that I might seriously injure myself whilst hobbling around the dressing room trying to yank them up. Then there are the times that I breathe a sign of relief that I was able to get the jeans all […]

Entrepreneurial Tall Sisters For The Win!

Do you have a tall sister?  I do and I’ve featured her here on the blog a few times.  I really miss living near my 5’11 sister for several reasons including the stealing sharing of clothes, fun (and sometimes frustrating) shopping trips and of course the special sisterly bond. Since I’m now living on a different continent and I miss her, here are a couple of my favorite photos of the two of us together during recent trips home to California.  In both photos, we happen to be posing on my magical little Balboa Island where I lived for a few […]
