Tall Jumpsuits For Every Age

I'm sorry it's been so long since I've shared fun finds and inspiration with you!  I have a really good excuse which I blogged about on my personal blog today! (You can see that post here).  Let's just say I may be highlighting a few more maternity looks in the coming weeks! :)  I've been very sick on and off and have put any "extra" energy into the weekly newsletter!  But I'm feeling better lately and hope to be able to blog here more frequently! Today I wanted to highlight some fun finds from a favorite partner.  I love rompers, one pieces, jumpsuits--whatever you want to call them.  But it can be tough to pull off depending on your body type, age, and personal style.  I thought it was interesting that the three offered in tall sizes at Alloy right now seem to neatly fit into three age categories.  Now, I always have to give the disclaimer each time I mention dressing for your age or stage in life that there really are no hard and fast rules! If you like it and feel confident in … [Read more...]

Personal Shopping: 37 Inseam Pants in Tans & Black

Client: 6'4", in her mid 50's. Size:  34" waist, 42" hips, 37" inseam length. Wants: Pants similar to "Dockers" in khaki, mocha, black and brown. Style Challenge:  She says she is having a hard time finding pants that fit as she has a flat behind.  She prefers mid-rise pants with straight leg styles. Tall Snob Responds:  You mentioned that you had purchased some pants from Alloy, but returned them as they cater to younger clients.  I'm going to agree with you that although their pants are affordable, they are most likely not age appropriate for you. Unfortunately, its slim pickings for what you want.  So, I am listing the one that I have found. You will have to try them on and see if they fit and return them if not. Here are the current options: Straight Cut Tall Suit Pants - in 36" or 38" inseam. Also in tan. Pendelton Destination Pants - 37" Inseam Perfect Tall Khaki Pants - 37" Inseam. I hope this helps and if anyone else have an idea of pants that may … [Read more...]

Monday Blues with a Touch of Sunshine

How was your weekend? Did you do anything interesting? We decided to check out the Ice Castles. Every year artisans create gorgeous ice castles in a few places around the country. This year they are here in our town. I must say they are rather fascinating and I highly recommend you visit if you get the chance. By the way, Alex Boyé just created a "Frozen" Video at the Ice Castles. It's really amazing! As you can see Winter's not over yet here in Utah, but I'm ready for it to be.  So I'm calling today's outfit: "Monday blues with a touch of sunshine". I always feel happier when I wear something bright and pretty. Don't you? The yellow sweater and shoes remind me of the sun, which I'm hoping will come out soon! Yellow Tall Cardigan.  Jersey Tall Tank. Tall Wool Pants - 36" Inseam. Blue Scarf. Navy Tote Bag.   Multi-Strand Bracelet. Yellow Flats to size 15.

Would You Wear These?

So what do you think of the pajama pant (and sometimes top) trend?  I've recently spotted this trend in tall sizes and I wanted to get your take: {via} Here are a couple of tall satin pajama pants I stumbled across: Tall Julie Straight Leg Pant in Drapey Satin Crepe. Tall Marisa Straight Leg Pant in Drapey Satin Crepe. I think if you want to rock this trend, these pairs are a bit safer than patterned pairs.  It's like a taste of the trend without FULLY embracing it!  I think I'd pair these pants with a high quality tank, heels, and a statement necklace.  And maybe a cuff bracelet.  I think it's key to keep it simple.  For other tips on how to wear this trend check out this post over at Obsessed. Lots of great inspiration images as well! So how do you feel about the pajama pant trend?  Love it? Hate it?  I've learned to never say never when it comes to fashion but I can't say I'm in love...yet. ;)   … [Read more...]

I ♥ Pilates

If you're a newsletter subscriber, you may remember that in one of the Christmas gift guides, Tiffany suggested buying a Roku.  She was so convincing that I bought Mr. Tall a Roku player.  If you're not familiar with what it is, it's a small media player that hooks into your television and connects to your WIFI. You can then broadcast Amazon movies easily as well as hundreds of other channels. Think of it as the ultimate remote control. Mr. Tall loves it, but I may love it even more. I missed the "Downton Abbey" craze and am now watching all the episodes via my Roku stream.  I just about fell over when my teen sons admitted that they love the show too! :) Anyway, what I really wanted to share with you today is that I love the Pilates Anytime Channel! You know me, when I love something, I share it with you.   I'm still on the 15 day free trial period of this channel and I must say that I'm enjoying it.  My feet are doing my better after my plantar fasciitis, but I'm not … [Read more...]

Tall Womens Workout Wear

This time of year I always make a goal of getting in shape.  I'm actually glad that January happens in the winter as it's a good reminder to get my body moving. Otherwise, I may just curl up and wait for Spring weather as it's so stinking cold outside!  I splurged a little too much on holiday goodies and my body feels like crap. So it's time to kick it into high gear.  I wrote down my goals yesterday and I'm on a perfect streak of exercise (2 days in a row).  He he!  I'm hoping my feet will hold up as I've spent from June-December rehabbing them.

Slightly Curvy Tall Wardrobe: Personal Shopping

Client 5'11" tall, Age 32 Size 10, 36" Inseam, Size 12 shoes. Budget: $500 Wants: a capsule wardrobe for work for a smart casual to dressy office, but no denim. She chose the colors of  navy, black, and jewel tones. Accent cream. Additional info: Her body has changed since having a child as she has some "new found hips". She loves her new body, but doesn't know what to wear anymore. She's looking to get rid of almost everything in her wardrobe as most of her outfits don't flatter her midsection of hips. She has a pair of black riding boots, plenty of handbags and outerwear. Tall Snob Responds: First off, I tried to stay within your budget, but I felt like I couldn't do it. Tall sizes are limited and so I finally just decided to pick out pieces that will flatter your figure. Then you can decide what you like the best and possibly use this as a guide to build upon. You will need to add more shoes and accessories to the wardrobe below. Hopefully you already have … [Read more...]
