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 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.

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.

Tall Personal Shopping: Day to Night Dress for Vacation

Client: 6'0" women Size: 6, 36" inseam Budget: $50 Request: My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to Washington DC this summer.  I'd like a tall summer dress that I can wear during the day while sightseeing but that can be dressed up for an evening out.: Tall Snob Responds: I love this request!

Don't you hate that?!).  I probably should have requested the client's age for a more specific search but here's what I came up with (and keep reading for some tips on taking dresses from day to night!). All dresses are under $50, with many falling under $40. Other than the dress on the top right, I consider these dresses ultra feminine in style.  The top right is a bit more classic with its shape and navy and white stripes. Tall Blue … [Read more...]
