Monthly Recap October 2013

Did you survive Halloween? We must have had 400+ kids at our home. Mr. Tall took the kiddos out and I handed out treats. I love seeing all the costumes. I did an informal marketing poll and let the kids choose their candy. It seemed the winner was the "Almond Joy" candy bars as when they saw them they grabbed them and expressed their joy! We are in the midst of creating lots of fun outfits and this is my favorite time of year for clothes. Here's our monthly recap of women's tall clothing for October.

Today's personal shopping request came from this Twitter tweet. Tall Client: 6'1" tall and size XL Client says: "I'm  desperate for a new heavy winter tall coat with a hood.  Pls help:)" Wants: The coat to hit mid thigh. She also told me where she had looked at some coats and wasn't happy. So based on our tweets back and forth, here are my recommendations: Tall Down Parka - many colors and rates to 0ºF. Stadium Tall Coat rated to -20°F. Sun Valley Tall Parka - I like how this one has more of a slimming shape. To 0ºF .

Camo Craze + Military Inspired Fashion

Over on Tall Clothing Mall I posted about the camo craze for men and have been meaning to do a similar post here.  This is a trend I love (maybe due to my military background?).  I'm not very into prints but camouflage is one that doesn't intimidate me (go figure).  I love the thought of pairing with neutrals and basics, using accessories, or of course pairing with chambray.  Just make sure not to overdo it or people will ask when you enlisted.  Without further ado here are some of my fave camo and military inspired pieces: 1969 Camo Front Zip Always Skinny Tall Jeans. Rocket Dog Beanie Boot. Up to size 14.  Free People Boiled Wool Military Peacoat. This is not a tall item but since a) it's gorgeous and b) it looks ridiculously big/long on the 5'7" model (who's wearing a size 0) I figure there's hope for a tall gal.  With free shipping and returns it's worth the risk! Steve Madden Camo Infinity Scarf. Call it SPRING Florian.  Up to size 11.  Women's The Rockstar Zip Pocket … [Read more...]

Tall Travel Wardrobe for Europe

Lara, a 6'1" tall woman, is really excited about her 25th wedding anniversary as she and her husband will celebrate by taking a trip to Europe.  She will start her journey with 3 days in Paris, then catch a 14 day guided tour and end in Rome where they will spend a few days in the Cinque Terre region of Italy. Total length of the vacation is 3 weeks. Doesn't this sound like a dream? They have to pack light - each with a small suitcase and a day pack. Lara has been gracious to share with us some items she chose for her trip. Tall Travel Wardrobe - Europe Chico's - Ripstop Utility Shorts - 15.5" inseam. She bought them in tan, black, and navy.

I got them in Asphalt Heather … [Read more...]

Kloe Kardashian Style

I'm not one to fawn over celebrity style as I feel they often wear clothes that are unattainable (ie.. too expensive) for most of us. Once in a while I see something that inspires me and it's fun to imitate. So, when I saw this photo on Facebook of 5'10" tall Kloe Kardashian, posted by Pretty Tall Style, I knew I could recreate the outfit in tall style. This outfit would be easy for any of us to pull off.  Enjoy!  Kloe Kardashian Style Recreation Tall Leopard Print Jacquard Jacket - wear with this outfit or a pencil skirt. Crew Neck Black Tall T-Shirt . 1969 Curvy Tall Jeans - 37" Inseam Gabriella Rocha Boots.  Kardashian Kollection Satchel.   … [Read more...]

Womens Tall Black Blazers

Jill sent me a personal shopping request for classic tall blazers. She has been looking for around a year for one she loves. :(  She would like one that can be worn to work as well as casually.

Cute and Bright Workout Looks

If you read my other blog, you know how I'm obsessed with NYC Pretty lately. {via} {via} The way she puts styles and looks together is incredible.  Lately, I've been super impressed with her workout looks.  She describes them as cute street looks she can take from downtown to a "sweat sesh," leaving no excuse to skip a work out.  Love that logic! I mean, just putting these looks together made me want to work out.  And that's saying a lot. ;)  So here are a few bright, trendy workout looks you can take from the streets to the gym--perfect to fulfill that New Year's resolution right? Oh and a bonus: EVERY SINGLE item featured comes in tall!  AND the prices start at just $7! Look 1: Crazy Cool. Most of us may not be brave enough to pull this off.  I may not have either prior to seeing Christine of NYCP look so amazing in patterned tights.  But would it help if I told you the crazy pants featured are just $10 on clearance?! Another note--the cool studded converse only come in up to … [Read more...]
