JuNi Fashion in Frankfurt - Clothing for tall women

New Tall Clothing Shop in Germany – My Visit to JuNi Fashion in Frankfurt

One of the main reasons I enjoy blogging is because I have so much fun discovering new tall brands and then introducing them to all of you. I think it is so important to support our fellow tall ladies who have taken a chance on starting tall fashion companies so that we can have easy access to well-fitting and stylish clothing. Today, I am thrilled to introduce you to tall fashion newcomer JuNi Fashion located in Frankfurt, Germany which launched in early 2017. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of day trips and I love them even more […]

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 […]

A Look Back at 2015

With 2015 now in the books, I’m taking a look back at some of the highlights that I wrote about on my tall fashion blog this year (and what a year it’s been)! Expat Life One of the biggest highlights of 2015 was our relocation from the U.S. to Europe. We arrived on December 3, 2014 and our first year as expats has FLOWN by.  In the travel department, we sure covered a ton of ground including trips to Prague, Strasbourg, Amsterdam (and Keukenhof!), Champagne region, Loire Valley, Piedmont/Tuscany, Rhine River, Paris, London and Zurich (just to name a few).

Tall Shopping Trip Part 2 – Review of LTS Button-Up Mixed Print Maxi

Since it’s the end of July, it’s high time I review one of my Tall Speciality Shop Challenge purchases from June.  I already shared my mom’s fabulous finds from our Long Tall Sally shopping spree and now it’s my turn. My main shopping mission was to find a couple of wear-anywhere-in-sweltering-weather dresses for my hot summer vacation in Italy.  Of course, I had stalked the LTS website and had some ideas about what I wanted to try on when I arrived at the store. This black and white LTS mixed print button-up maxi has quickly become my summer go-to!  There is so […]

Tall Shopping Trip Part 1 – Visit to a Long Tall Sally Store with Mom

My mom came to visit me in Europe for a splendid 2+ weeks.  She just left a couple of days ago, and I’m crying in my beer wine because I miss her something fierce, but at least I can console myself by going through the 9837453980578932 photos from her visit. We definitely covered some major turf during her trip visiting 3 countries and several interesting sites.  More importantly, we trekked to a Long Tall Sally store and spent a sublime two hours shopping until we dropped.I just love that LTS has fabulous styles that are suitable for a broad age range […]

Long Tall Sally Pop-Up Review From My Mom and Sister

I’ll never forget the first Long Tall Sally pop-up shop that I went to with my sister back in 2011.  It was such a fun, exhilarating experience to browse all of the tall styles surrounded by several other fabulous tall women.  Even though I don’t live near her anymore, my 5’11 sister has continued to shop at the pop-ups and this year, she took my lovely 5’11 mom with her.  I wanted to be there shopping with them so badly!!!  Now that I’m done whining, I’ll show you their favorite buys. My sister scored this gorgeous coral lace dress and when […]

Tall Shopping in The Netherlands – A Visit to Pretty Tall in Apeldoorn

I woke up on Monday morning in The Netherlands with that giddy “birthday morning and I’m ready for gifts and cake and ice cream and cupcakes and more ice cream” feeling because Mr. L3 and I were about to set off on an hour drive from Amsterdam to Apeldoorn to visit the tall shop Pretty Tall.  Am I the only one who gets this excited when experiencing in-person tall shopping?Before Monday, I’d only had the chance to visit a brick-and-mortar shop specializing in tall women’s clothes twice in my 30ish years so it obviously goes without saying that it is […]

First Visit to a Long Tall Sally Store

I remember when I was in high school, my mom and I made the 1+ hour trek to Pasadena, CA to visit a tiny ittle store that only sold tall women’s clothing.  On one of the visits, I bought a beautiful floor-length red gown that I still haven’t worn to this day.  I was just awestruck that a dress would actually be a little bit TOO long for me and I simply HAD to have it (you know…in case I ever needed to just throw a formal red gown on).  Miraculously, it still fits so if I ever need to bust that bad boy out […]
