Perfect Valentine’s Day Date Shoe!

Fellow Amazons!

I have never really celebrated Valentine’s day or got caught up in the hype but this year my husband and I are hitting the town and I think these Jeffery Campbell T-straps are in order. I love their vintage woven leather toe and flashy patent heel,  they will look great with a pair of cut offs  or cute printed socks and a skater skirt come the summer. Found these puppies at Nordstrom and they run up to a size 12!

Tall Muse Du Jour! Karlie Kloss

Heya Tallies!

From runway darling to cookie baker extraordinaire to amazing denim creator for all us long legged lovelies to philanthropist; Karlie Kloss has to be one of my favourite tall beauties ringing in at 6’1!

Karlie was born in 1992 with a background in ballet which she credits for her graceful, fierce strut on the catwalk. Her enormous acclaim doesn’t just stem from her popularity as a model, she has a lot going for her. Karlie bakes up a storm with popular baking outfit in NYC Momofuko Milk bar, making vegan, gluten and sugar free cookies for charity,  proceeds going to FEED which has provided  75, 640, 640 meals to date for people in need around the world. But her charity work doesn’t end there; she also helped raise $58,000 for AIDS charities amongst other charitable outfits.

So I know, this is meant to be a fashion blog for tall women, so get to the goods right? Well this is kind of old news now and I am surprised I haven’t blogged about it in the past but Karlie collaborated with Fame Denim and created some pretty hot jeans with 40″ inseam! Finally a pair of jeans I can put a stylish, deep cuff on and not have my whole ankle show.

I can’t wait to see what Karlie does next, I am sure she will continue to inspire and hopefully create more on trend stylish clothes for tall women around the world!

Happy Sunday!

Dot and Pete Makes My Shoe Dreams Come True Again!

Hey Tall Beauties!

If you wear up to a size 13 shoe in women’s and you haven’t checked out this fantastic Aussie outfit Dot and Pete they are definitely worth web window shop! I fell in love with the brand back when I was living in Sydney Australia and the shops  that catered to my size 12 foot were pretty non-existent . Dot and Pete don’t have a huge turnover of product but when they do create something new it is totally on-trend, well made and gorgeous. I am loving these gladiator sandals below for summer, which can’t come soon enough!

Happy Shopping!

Swimsuits – Shopping Tall with an Aussie line from Robyn Lawley!

Heya Tallies!

So buying a swimsuit is probably one of my least favourite purchases of all time, on numerous levels. Level Number One: I dislike cozzy shopping like 85% of  all women because I feel very exposed and it’s a lot to handle fresh out of winter with super pale skin and some extra “keep the cold out” pounds you so generously put on as it was an exceptionally chilly winter, coupled with a jungle of unkept hair that you grew  to insulate against that harsh windchill. Level Number Two: Being long bodied, I can never find a really great fitting one-piece swimsuit which is on trend and sexy. I end up with a solid black bathing suit, with tummy ruching, that is never long enough which creates this unflattering super-high leg that only Cindy Crawford circa early 90’s could pull off.   After my old lady swimsuit has been purchased I spend more energy and money scouring for a funky cover-up to hide my ill fitting bathing-suit but at least with wraps and tunics I have a bit more room to play with colour, patterns and shape

This year will be different, I will not succumb to my usual black burka set as I will be the proud new owner of a Robyn Lawley swimsuit! If you haven’t seen this incredible line of swimmers from the beautiful 6’2 Aussie goddess, you should totally check it out here!
