Back to School Tall Outfit

Tall Boyfriend Jacket Review

I was contacted by Long Tall Sally to see if there was any items I was wanting to review. One item that really caught my eye was their tall boyfriend jacket. Blazers are on of my favorite items and I must say that this one meets my expectations. The tangerine color is quite bright - almost has a red undertone.  The boyfriend style is a little bit roomier than most, which I actually appreciate. It has just enough room, but is not boxy and is quite flattering.  I wore it to church and reveived many compliments.  The sleeves were long enough and I don't have any complaints about this jacket as I love it! I also love the blue color and it I didn't already have a similar jacket in that color, I'd buy it too!     Disclosure: I received this as a free items to review. This is my honest review. … [Read more...]

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...]

Tall Personal Shopping: Tall Blazers & Colored Jeans

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...]

You can still be a stylish women while still looking professional.  Now having said that, I don't suggest you wear fluorescent colors or get an extreme hairstyle.  But, you can office appropriate colored suits with a pretty accessory such as a shiny necklace.

She loves outfits with bright colors in trendy styles similar to a "short" person's wardrobe. Tall Snob Responds: I've tried to give you as much as a mix and match wardrobe as I can.  By keeping the bottoms in neutral colors of tan and navy blue, it's easy to mix and match all the tops and sweaters. The accessories will also match all the items.  I hope this helps to maximize your budget.  I did tend to go overboard on the polka dots, so I hope you love dots. It seems like they are everywhere this season. As far as creating items similar to a short person's wardrobe, I have no expertise there and I'm not going to pretend that I do. Please embrace your height and play up your assets as you are unique and gorgeous and I sincerely want you to believe that!  Striped Tall Peplum Top. Tall Cardi. Tall … [Read more...]
