Personal Shopping: Bra Size 40A

First off, I'm going to request that you don't leave snarky comments. When people ask for personal shopping help, they have real problems and are seeking real solutions: I received the following email: Hi Krista, I came across your site and was very happy, and just needed to share my experience and ask for some help finding some good options for bras. I am having a tall girl problem with finding a bra. I am slightly over 6' tall. I am athletic and have a small bust, but a larger rib cage. I haven't been able to find a bra that fit well in years, and I was wondering why. My roommate went and got professionally measured the other day and she was ecstatic to get a bra that fit her well for the first time. So of course I decided it was time to get measured. It turns out that I am a 40A, which is not carried in stores I can find. I started to look online, but I could only find either extremely expensive bras which are way out of my price range, or bras my grandma would wear (I'm … [Read more...]

Fur Real

After seeing a couple of fur items in tall sizes I figured this trend was worth blogging. Of course one of the items (a pretty faux fur vest) must have sold out but there's still plenty to go around.  I mostly love fur. I'll admit; it's a bit daring.  But these days there are so many sources of inspiration and instruction on how to wear certain trends that it's definitely doable.  As always if you can't find the trend in tall sizes or are too afraid to don a full faux fur piece, use accessories to get in on the action.  Just have fun with it! Tall Fur Jacket. I'd wear this with skinny jeans and merlot pumps or edgy black booties. Faux Fur Collar Tall Cardigan. A conservative take. Luxury Faux Fur Scarf. Add fur to any winter ensemble instantly. Cut Faux Tall Fur Coat. It's fashion forward and cool.Tall Navy Fur Collar Coat. Just a touch of fur gives this demure coat a sophisticated edge.  French Connection Faux Fur Clutch. A fun and edgy way to embrace the fur trend.  I love … [Read more...]

Tall Project Remix: Guest Post via Long Leggy

Today we are thrilled to have a guest post from our friend - Bethany of LongLeggy. Tall Project Remix - Tips & Tricks for creating a Tall Remixable Wardrobe Have you ever found yourself standing in your closet, staring at the myriad of items hanging there and feeling like you don't have a blooming thing to wear?  This was happening to me WAY too often.  I was even beginning to wish I could just wear a uniform to work.  After discovering the blog Putting Me Together by Audrey, I realized I was having this daily wardrobe crisis because I didn’t own enough "remixable" pieces. My haphazard shopping would result in me buying stuff that was all over the color and style spectrum.  I also had a bad habit of buying “loner” pieces that can only be worn one way (such as one trick pony shirts that I can’t tuck, belt or layer). Clearly, I needed a strategy!! Enter Project Remix. My focus for 2013 has been to remix my current garb (translation figure out different ways to wear what I … [Read more...]
