Tall Trends: Fringe and Tassels for the Win

I'm seeing tassels and fringe everywhere right now - on purses, tops, dresses, jewelry, shoes - the list goes on. I'm really loving that there are so many different ways to wear this fun, flirty and sometimes sassy trend. Tall ladies can rock some serious fringe since the long fringe detailing on a dress or top perfectly compliments long limbs. If you want to go all out, try wearing a little black dress with fringe details. If you'd prefer your fringe to be a little less obvious, wear it on a pair of sandals or a purse. Do you think the fringe trend is a bit too over-the-top? The subtler cousin of fringe, tassels, is just the thing for you. I love the understated tassel tie around the waist of the green maxi dress. The stone pendant necklace with a gold tassel at the bottom is something I'd continue to wear even after this trend fades. When I think of tassels on shoes, I typically think of a classic loafer. Why not try a more updated style by choosing a bright tassled … [Read more...]

Fruit Salad. Yummy, Yummy.

I come from a long line of fruit farmers.  As a kid I spent all of my Summers working on the farms and taking caring of the trees that would yield their delicious fruit.

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. With a length of 28.5”, the polka dot midi skirt is a great addition to your wardrobe for year-round wear.  The bright polka dots are perfect for spring and summer and the black fabric allows the skirt to span all seasons.  Plus, you can wear a myriad of different colored tops with the skirt thanks to the multi-colored … [Read more...]

Tall Outfits for Memorial Day

Memorial Day weekend usually means either going to a BBQ, spending a day at the beach or both if you're lucky.  It's always a good idea for tall ladies to stock up on some long torso swimsuits so that we're ready for some fun in the sun once beach season rolls around.  The featured swimsuit not only boasts a long torso but also comes in a wide range of sizes, including plus sizes. Pair this tall swimdress with basic flip flops that are easy to wash off once you've left the sand and a Panama hat to shield you from the sun.  Of course, you'll also need a cute straw bag to stow all of your beach necessities.  I love the lace detailing on the straw tote.  Don't you? Memorial Day Beach/Poolside Look Fancy a stroll to a beachside cafe for some lunch? Put a pretty cover-up dress over your swimsuit and you're ready for some beachside dining.  Not going to be near a beach for Memorial Day?  No problem! This look will also work for the pool. Long Torso Swimsuit (Sizes 8-24) Flip Flops. … [Read more...]

Paris Chic

It's a little slow on the blog this week as it's Spring break for my kids.  We spent last week finishing up the sale of Mr. Tall's business - which was his Spring break. He's officially a full time student. Since the Spring breaks were on different weeks, it put a kink in my family traveling anywhere. So today's outfit is inspired of me dreaming of a trip to Paris.  I've been working on one for a client.  I hope to return there again someday.   Dreaming....

Day to Night Tall Valentine’s Day Dress

A few of you have requested more options in tall Valentine's Day dresses, so today I'm showing you another option. Today's look is a tall wrap dress from Soft Surroundings. I have this same style of dress that they have made in past seasons and I must say that it fits really well. If this is the same, it is made of thicker cotton/spandex mix that hides my imperfections and is super flattering. {I'm a mom to 5 kids and need all the help I can get.} I do wear support hose underneath, you could squeeze into your Spanx as well.  I do wish it was an inch or two longer though as this is my common gripe with most of the tall dresses these days.  They are fine when I'm standing, but I hate having to pull them down a little when sitting. But, I wear it anyway and Mr. Tall loves it. I can see you wearing this dress to work with a pair of low nude pumps and then changing it up with the higher heels for date night. Tall Wrap Dress also in blue or black.  Cluster Pearl Necklace Love Moschino … [Read more...]
