Tall Trends – Mad for Plaid

I bought my first tall plaid shirt last year and couldn't believe how much I wore it.  Plaid is no longer just for lumberjacks or aficionados of the 1990s flannel shirt trend. You can now find tall plaid skirts, pretty button-ups blouses, tunics, pants, shoes and more!  I'm thrilled to be seeing so many tall plaid styles for women this year and can't wait to beef up my plaid collection. Here are a few styles that caught my eye: Plaid linen-blend tunic (Up to size XXL; Also available in red plaid) Tall tunics are one of my all time favorite clothing items and I love the blue plaid fabric of this tunic.  It would look great with tall white jeans, black jeans or just jeans! The tunic comes in a breathable linen/cotton blend. Over-the-knee Boots: (Up to size 12; Available in 4 widths) I just love the plaid detail on these over-the-knee boots.  To make it even better, the boots can be adjusted to fit larger calfs and come in 4 different widths! Plaid tall midi skirt (Up … [Read more...]

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. When I think of a palm print, I typically see a green and white pattern in my mind's eye, but I've noticed several styles in other fun colors as well.  From workout clothes to dresses to PJs, frond prints are everywhere this summer. Check out some of my favorite picks:   Plus Size Dress - Length 43"  Black/White Shirtdress.    Green Tall Palm Dress.  PJs. Workout Capris.  Palm Print Tall T-Shirt.   Tall Shorts.    Trapeze Dress You may also like this pineapple top. … [Read more...]

Summertime Lace – Tall Eyelet Tops, Dresses and Skirts

I have an infatuation with all things lacy.  While a fancy lace dress or skirt still has its place in tall summer fashions, eyelet lace is the perfect fabric for everyday wear during the warmer months. Here are a few tall eyelet styles that have caught my eye. White Zip Top with Eyelet Details (Sizes 6-18) If you only want to wear a bit of eyelet lace, this top is perfect for you since the lace detailing on the shoulders is very subtle. Eyelet  Tall Bomber Jacket (Sizes Small-XXL) Maybe temperatures are already sizzling where you live, but I was still wearing a summer scarf and light jacket last weekend. An eyelet bomber jacket is the perfect spring/summer layering piece for unpredictable weather. Tall Chevron Eyelet Skirt (Sizes 0-18) This cheery, light yellow skirt can be dressed down with a white t-shirt and sandals or dressed up with a pretty blouse and heels. Eyelet Tall Midi Skirt (Sizes S-XL)  I could easily see this eyelet midi skirt in black or white … [Read more...]

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...]
