Are you struggling to find a gift for the tall girl in your life? Look no further because I’ve got you covered. Last year, we discussed last-minute holiday gifts for tall/curvy girls. This year, I’m sharing a few simple gift ideas for all of your tall friends on Santa’s “nice” list.
Happy Saturday! Recently I fell in love…not with a person but with three new pieces from Fashion to Figure and Long Tall Sally. The first is a black faux leather and chiffon vest from Fashion to Figure. This sassy number adds a little extra zest to any outfit. Here, I wore it over a plain black top for an added slimming effect.
For some of you, the jumpsuit trend has held a special place in your heart since the electric era of the 1970s. If you’ve been holding on to that last piece of vintage clothing, you’re in luck! The jumpsuit trend has come back this spring and summer, as evidenced by recent runway looks from Marc Jacobs, Chloe and Balmain.
If you still have yours from the 70s, run to your closet and rejoice. For the rest of us who didn’t experience the awesomeness of this trend firsthand, stay tuned as I share a few reasons why you should add a jumpsuit to your wardrobe rotation.
Spring weather calls for spring fashion and this season, I’m crushing on blush pink. Blush is a soft version of baby pink. It’s the perfect blend of class and femininity. Blush can be dressed up with pearls or rocked out with studs and bangles, depending on the colors you choose to complement it with.
This week, I’m featuring an awesome blush skirt from Forever 21 and a sexy cut out crop top from TTYA’s collaboration with Long Tall Sally. Note: This skirt color is limited and may only be available in stores.
Ahhh, don’t you just love spring? The flowers are blooming, temperatures are rising and we can officially start counting down until the first day of summer. Another great thing about spring is the fashion.
I’ve been looking for a new statement piece to really set off my spring wardrobe. Thanks to Long Tall Sally, I’ve officially found it. Introducing the Origami Flower Wrap Dress…
Happy New Year! The holiday season has officially ended and now it’s time to ramp up the fashion. I know we’re all still making our New Year’s resolutions, so here’s one to add to the list – NO MORE BLACK (outfits, of course…lol). Yes, you heard me right. We have to break out of the mundane of our dreary all black wardrobes and add a pop of color. That’s why this week’s topic is entitled, “Orange is the New Black.”
If you’re a tall and/or curvy girl like me, you know how hard it can be finding a great store that caters to your body and style. After weeks of blog research and Instagram stalking (I’m not afraid to admit it…lol), I stumbled upon a store called Talltique. Talltique launched in the beginning of 2012, and over the last four years, has grown to be a market leader in the tall women’s clothing industry. The store was created by 6’4 beauty, Helen Pappas, who grew frustrated searching for fashionable and good quality clothes for true tall women (not just the 5’9 ladies mainstream fashion denotes as ‘tall’). Don’t you just love it when someone in ‘the struggle’ helps to address the need?!? Talltique’s has both an online and brick and mortar presence. Helen is always available to answer styling/fit question and opens her doors to local tall girls by appointment only. Check out some of my favorite new pieces below:

Check out these holiday looks from Fashion to Figure and Talltique that will ensure you’ll be ready for anything from a last-minute date night to an evening holiday party.
