Affordable Tall Gray Suit

The great thing about buying suits separates is that if you are a different size on the top, vs. the bottom you can buy the size you need for a customized fit.  I came across this affordable tall gray suit which comes in separates and in 4 colors, but I like the gray. The gray has a subtle plaid pattern with a purple stripe.  I'm loving the sheath dress, suit jacket and pants, but I'm thinking the skirt at 24" long is too short for my legs and for my age. If you love this look, snag it fast as some sizes are selling out! Tall Suit Jacket.    Trapunto Tall Pants - 35" inseam Tall Sheath Dress.    Tall Pencil Skirt - 24" long. May not be long enough for some tall women. Purple Tall Blouse.    Nine West Flax Purple Heels to size 14. Purple Envelope Clutch You may also like these tall suit separates. … [Read more...]

Tall Project Remix - Tips & Tricks for creating a Tall Remixable Wardrobe Have you ever found yourself standing in your closet, staring at the myriad of items hanging there and feeling like you don't have a blooming thing to wear?  This was happening to me WAY too often.  I was even beginning to wish I could just wear a uniform to work.  After discovering the blog Putting Me Together by Audrey, I realized I was having this daily wardrobe crisis because I didn’t own enough "remixable" pieces. My haphazard shopping would result in me buying stuff that was all over the color and style spectrum.  I also had a bad habit of buying “loner” pieces that can only be worn one way (such as one trick pony shirts that I can’t tuck, belt or layer). Clearly, I needed a strategy!! Enter Project Remix. My focus for 2013 has been to remix my current garb (translation figure out different ways to wear what I … [Read more...]
