White Tunic – Shop by Bra Size

I have a few minutes this morning before I take off for Spring Break, so I want to show you a concept I absolutely love. Introducing the shop by bra size tunic. I know that with my large chest, many button up shirts have the stinking gaping hole. If I size up, to fit my chest, it looks like a sack on the rest of my body.  These types of shirts may solve this problem.  I'm guessing with this not being tall sized, that this tunic may fit more like a regular shirt. But hey, it still looks like a great idea!  If you have tried this brand, I'd love for you to leave feedback via a comment below. Check out this white tunic at InStyle Essentials. … [Read more...]

Client: 5'9" tall woman, age 37 Sizes: 4 or 26" waist, and 6 or medium in tops. 33"-34" inseam length. Budget: Not sure - maybe up to $100 per item. Wants: "I have the hardest time finding tall blazers, tall jackets and definitely tall denim in colors (grey and red) and stone wash denim. I will spend money for quality when it comes to blazers and jackets, but of course I will not pass up a good deal." Tall Snob Responds: I'm going to second what you said about finding "quality" tall blazers and jackets.  I will get one I love and then the same brand will produce a less than desirable quality the next time.  I believe it's because some of the name brands are outsourcing to different factories all the time and the quality control is not the greatest. So, I don't know what to tell you other than just keep trying and send back what doesn't work.  It's an irritant of all of us tall girls. Ugh.  However, one brand that seems to stay consistent is JCrew, but you will pay much … [Read more...]
