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...]

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...]

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.

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...]
