Jessica Rey Swimdress Review: Long Torso-Friendly Ethically Made Swimwear!

I’ve never been a huge fan of skimpy swimsuits…well at least as far as the bottoms are concerned. Even in my 20s, I gravitated more toward full coverage boy short bottoms or flirty skirt bottoms balanced out by admittedly skimpy bikini tops. In my 30s, I started experimenting with pairing my skirted bottoms with tankini tops, but I have yet to find one that I didn’t have to tug on every 5 seconds so tankinis generally annoy the heck out of me. I haven’t worn a one piece swimsuit since I was a teenager but decided to start searching online […]

Perfect for Spring! Tall Gingham Shirt from Allta

It’s been a few years since 6’0 Emma, owner of UK-based tall brand Allta, gifted me this beautiful wool blazer and I’ve been wanting more from this brand ever since! After I dipped my toe in the order-from-the-UK pool with my recent shoe order from Otto+Ivy and saw how easy it was to order from abroad, I decided to chance another UK order by buying the Aston gingham shirt from Allta. Sometimes you don’t know what’s missing from your wardrobe until you add an item and wonder where it’s been your whole life. That’s how I feel about this tall […]

Otto+Ivy Review

Otto+Ivy Review – Tilly Boots

Back in the olden days (around 12 years ago) before I even started blogging, I discovered the fabulous and witty tall blog All the Tall Things written by 6’2 Laura Schofield. It has always been my all time fav blog! Fast forward to 2015 and I was thrilled to bits to meet up with Laura and fellow blogger Sara of Girl in the Pretty Dress for brunch in London. And then fast forward to 2020 when Laura launched her UK-based shoe brand Otto+Ivy featuring gorgeous ethically made boots, heels and flats for tall ladies.  I can’t believe it took me […]

Thoughtful Gift Guide for the Holidays and Beyond

I have a bit of an odd relationship with Christmas thanks to the “interesting” (translation straight up weird) cult-like church that I grew up in. Christmas trees were considered idols so we weren’t allowed to have one lest we be tempted to dance around our house worshipping it. Exchanging gifts was also a no no and of course there was no Santa either. For all of the weirdness of this churchcult, I actually appreciate the way we celebrated (or rather didn’t celebrate) Christmas. Instead of exchanging gifts amongst ourselves, we usually focused on helping people who were in need. There […]

Striped fall sweaters from JuNi fashion

Tall Travel Style – Fall Sweaters from JuNi Fashion

You know what i love?! Fall fashion! And it’s even better when it’s tall fall fashion. I’m back with another installment of Tall Travel Style, this time showing how I’ve been wearing my fall sweaters from JuNi Fashion. When I first brought my purchases home, I felt like maybe they were a little too basic and boring and kind of wished I had bought at least one statement piece with a bit more flare. Now that I’ve had these sweaters for a couple of months, I realized that I keep reaching for them again and again when getting dressed in […]
