Tall Boyfriend Jacket Review

I was contacted by Long Tall Sally to see if there was any items I was wanting to review. One item that really caught my eye was their tall boyfriend jacket. Blazers are on of my favorite items and I must say that this one meets my expectations. The tangerine color is quite bright - almost has a red undertone.  The boyfriend style is a little bit roomier than most, which I actually appreciate. It has just enough room, but is not boxy and is quite flattering.  I wore it to church and reveived many compliments.  The sleeves were long enough and I don't have any complaints about this jacket as I love it! I also love the blue color and it I didn't already have a similar jacket in that color, I'd buy it too!     Disclosure: I received this as a free items to review. This is my honest review. … [Read more...]

Personal Shopping: Tall Travel Dresses

Client: 5'10" tall, 50 years old Sizes: Size 12, 36DD chest (sometimes 38). Shoes size 10. Budget: Whatever it takes if something fits and looks good! Wants: "I am going to Italy in June and have a trip for Memorial day in Chicago and it would be nice to have some nice new stuff for these trips. I love summer dresses - above the knee slightly - I like short sleeves rather than totally sleeveless but sleeveless is fine too as long as the bra straps are totally covered and the boob area isn't too revealing... I don't mind a bit of cleavage but I don't want my big boob bra to show! I'm a bit thicker in the middle but working diligently on that."   Tall Snob Responds:  I love that you directed me to your Facebook profile as I was able to stock look at your photos and style and see that you're a really beautiful and young looking 50!  For my picks in tall travel dresses, I included a mix of casual vs. dressier styles. Many of the dresses can be worn with sandals or … [Read more...]

White Tunic – Shop by Bra Size

I have a few minutes this morning before I take off for Spring Break, so I want to show you a concept I absolutely love. Introducing the shop by bra size tunic. I know that with my large chest, many button up shirts have the stinking gaping hole. If I size up, to fit my chest, it looks like a sack on the rest of my body.  These types of shirts may solve this problem.  I'm guessing with this not being tall sized, that this tunic may fit more like a regular shirt. But hey, it still looks like a great idea!  If you have tried this brand, I'd love for you to leave feedback via a comment below. Check out this white tunic at InStyle Essentials. … [Read more...]

Ikat Tall Shirtdress

Don't give up on me! I haven't posted much this past week as it's been an extremely busy week and I have had so much Mom business to take care of.  The kiddos come first. As much as I would love to blog every day, it's not always realistic. After today, I will be taking another leave for the rest of the week as it's Spring break. I will be out in the desert without any Internet access.  But, you can expect me back next week for sure! For those of you waiting on personal shopping requests, I haven't forgotten you.  It will be another week. Sorry! Today I'm inspired by the blues in this skirt dress. I'd rather be wearing this on a beach vacation, then the sloppy clothes I'll be wearing four- wheeling in the desert. Maybe when I return... Ikat Tall Shirtdress. Vigotti Blue Sandals to size 13. Lucky Brand Blue Drop Earrings. Hinge Bracelet Please let me know what type of things you'd like posted this Spring.  Any style challenges, etc. Comment below. … [Read more...]

Tall Personal Shopping: Tall Blazers & Colored Jeans

Client: 5'9" tall woman, age 37 Sizes: 4 or 26" waist, and 6 or medium in tops. 33"-34" inseam length. Budget: Not sure - maybe up to $100 per item. Wants: "I have the hardest time finding tall blazers, tall jackets and definitely tall denim in colors (grey and red) and stone wash denim. I will spend money for quality when it comes to blazers and jackets, but of course I will not pass up a good deal." Tall Snob Responds: I'm going to second what you said about finding "quality" tall blazers and jackets.  I will get one I love and then the same brand will produce a less than desirable quality the next time.  I believe it's because some of the name brands are outsourcing to different factories all the time and the quality control is not the greatest. So, I don't know what to tell you other than just keep trying and send back what doesn't work.  It's an irritant of all of us tall girls. Ugh.  However, one brand that seems to stay consistent is JCrew, but you will pay much … [Read more...]

Tall Personal Shopping: Tall, Plus Size Professional Feels Frumpy

Client: 5'10" tall woman, 49 year old Sizes:  Her weight fluctuates between 14W - 2X. She is currently a size 2X. Chest is a 42DD. Somewhat of an apple shape with a flat rear area.  35" inseam length.  Other Notes: - Empire waist is not flattering on her body and she feels insecure with bare upper arms. "Her closet is a fashion nighmare." Wants:  She works in an office selling property insurance and needs clothes for work.  She loves the preppy look and is inspired by Steve Nicks. Budget:  Tight, but can make exceptions for fabulous pieces.   Tall Snob Responds:  I understand that when you feel frumpy you think everything looks bad on you, whether it does or not.  I think your issue with empire waists is that with being tall, the empire may not even hit under your chest.  Plus with a big chest, you often see the empire curve really adding extra emphasis to your chest.  You get a bust roll and then viola the girls are definitely defined and curved. However, you … [Read more...]

Green Inspiration for St. Patrick’s Day

Have I told you how much I love the color green?  It epitomizes Spring to me.  If you look to nature, you'll notice that green is everywhere and acts as a background to make everything else brighter.

Here's a few items that make me Smile today: Tall Green V-Neck T-Shirt.   Green Floral Scarf.   Green Tall Skater Dress - save 20% off via code LUCKYDUCK. Ends 3/19 at 7 am ET.  Green Bermudas in Tall.   Green Wedge Sandals.   3/4 Sleeve T-Shirt. There's some great St. Patrick's Day sales going on now that you may want to check out. … [Read more...]

Tall Personal Shopping: What to Wear as a Court Reporter

Client: 6'1" tall, 49 years old works as a court reporter. Size: 14 with a 35" inseam length. Size 12 shoes. Wants: Help in finding clothes. She basically has 2 pair of black knit pants that she interchanges with blouses. She hates shopping and doesn't know what looks good together. Budget:  Moderately priced.   Tall Snob Responds:  I can see your dilemma. You work in an environment where the judge wears a bulky robe that masks every bit of body shape.  You are trying to cover the case without being the focus of the case. Does this mean you need to dress like a nun? No! You can still be a stylish women while still looking professional.  Now having said that, I don't suggest you wear fluorescent colors or get an extreme hairstyle.  But, you can office appropriate colored suits with a pretty accessory such as a shiny necklace. A few guidelines: Suits in darker colors, grays or tans. Classic pumps with low to medium heels. Blouses with at least short to long … [Read more...]
