Tall Trends: Pretty Palm Prints

Are you looking for a bold summer pattern to add to your tall clothing collection that doesn't include florals?  A pretty palm print might just be the answer.  While I love floral prints, sometimes I want something a bit less "girly" and it's always good to have a bit of variety with the prints in my closet.

Pretty Plus-Size Look From the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale

Can you believe we're fast approaching the halfway point of 2015? One of the things I love about this time of year is the half-yearly sales!  Just because a store doesn't carry tall sizes doesn't mean tall ladies can't take advantage of all the deals and steals.  One trick I use when shopping these sales is to compare the measurements of a “non-tall” item with the measurements of a similar item from a tall line. Using this strategy, I’ve scoured the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale and put together a pretty plus-size outfit that will work well for tall ladies. Cut-out Detail Top.   Polka Dot Midi Skirt. Kate Spade Earrings.  Scalloped Peep Toe Pumps - to size 13.

Hightlights from Las Vegas Fashion Market

If you're following me on Facebook, you'll see what a blast I'm having this week at the fashion market in Las Vegas. I'll have new items for the store in a few weeks and even more in the Fall.   I'm digging through all of the designer samples to find items I love and hope you will too. My trusty tape measure is my best friend and I find I'm the only one I see that is measuring everything.   My highlight today was meeting supermodel Emme. I attended a fashion seminar where Emme was one of the hosts and she is down to earth and a great spokeswoman for body acceptance.  What a great role model! I also met the sisters from Amalli Talli - a new women's tall store in Minnesota.  I regret not taking a picture with them.  We ran into each other shopping in the same store.  Great minds!  It wasn't hard to notice each other as we towered over everyone.    It's late and I've got another full day tomorrow.   Talk to you soon! … [Read more...]
