Black business suits for tall women

Business Suits for Tall Women (and How I Cheated on my Tall Specialty Shop Challenge)

A few weeks ago, I unexpectedly received an invitation to interview for a job.  I foolishly assumed that my black pant suit was in the closet and ready to go.  The jacket was there but the pants I normally wear were nowhere to be found. Yikes!  I rifled through my closet and found two more pairs of black dress pants. Phew! It seemed like I was in luck….or was I?

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 […]
