Happy Thanksgiving

 

Just a quick note to say HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and yours.

A few things I am thankful for this year:

  1. Those of you who come to read my blog. Then you come back to read more.
  2. The sweet emails I get letting me know that someone out there understands me.
  3. My bloggy friends. Y’all crack me up and I love y’all!
  4. Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, and Sweet Potato pie. I don’t need to eat anything else.
  5. All of the tall ranges that have popped up this year. Hopefully there will be even more next year.

Heavenly Father, on Thanksgiving Day
We bow our hearts to You and pray.
We give You thanks for all You’ve done
Especially for the gift of Jesus, Your Son.
For beauty in nature, Your glory we see
For joy and health, friends and family,
For daily provision, Your mercy and care
These are the blessings You graciously share.
So today we offer this response of praise
With a promise to follow You all of our days. 

 

 

My #dearsally Holiday Wish List 2014

0

I suppose I should be making a wish list to help you find something for the tall girls in your life. I mean, it would be selfish of me to only think about what I want, right? So here’s my story and I’m sticking to it… This is my holiday wish list from Long Tall Sally, but I’m sharing it with you to use as inspiration for your tall loved ones. Yeah, that sounds good. I’m so thoughtful!

#dearsally Holiday Wish List

 

Gold Foil Top

Does my face show how cold I am?

I’m asking because it was cold outside when I took this picture. My daughter is just out of frame with my coat to rush to me as soon as my unpaid, in-home photographer took these pics. My sister has always told me that my facial expressions always gives me away. Even when I’m trying to be nice. I’m still working on that…

Anyways, let’s get to the point of this post. The shirt I’m wearing is the Gold Foil Top and it was sent to me along with a few other items from the Long Tall Sally Holiday ’14 Collection.

It is a gorgeous shirt and I really like it, but it’s very sheer. The back is more see-through than the front and I had to wear a camisole under it to keep my bra from showing.

It’s hard to see in these pics but the front of the shirt these gold metallic looking threads all through it and it’s pretty, not gaudy as you might think it would look. There’s also this knot thingy on the front (which also can’t be seen very well in the pics. smh) that made me choose this top. It is one of those tops that can be dressed up or down. I chose to wear it wear jeans and my knee-high boots and the outfit came together nicely. Which you can’t tell because I didn’t get any full body pics. *slaps forehead*

This looks like I may be plotting something…

So what is the lesson we learned here today? I can not function when it’s cold outside. I will redo the pics so you can get a better idea of how pretty this top is.

P.S. Next week I’m gonna share some pants I got. Hint: they are looooong!

And yes, I will be taking better pictures. Dang, why are y’all doubting me already?  o___o

Tall Couture Closing

0

Welp, Tall Couture has announced that they are closing their online store. This means that you should be able to snatch some great items at cheap prices. The web store will close permanently on 12/12/14. (Christmas shopping for tall girls. #score)

Check out some of the pieces from their Under $20 page. As expected, there isn’t a large quantity of different sizes available so if you see something you like in your size, you better snatch it while you can. All sales are final.

Tall Couture is a place to go to if you’re looking for premium denim. They sell top brands like 7 for All Mankind, Hudson Jeans, Tallwater, Silver Jeans, Standards & Practices, and quite a few more brands. Despite the excitement of possibly getting these brands at rock bottom prices, it is sad to see a tall store closing. They mentioned on their blog that the premium denim brands are now opening their own web stores, so TC has decided to work with those manufacturers in finding the best deals in premium clothing instead of competing with them.

Is it getting cold there? Here’s 5 more Jackets for Tall Women

0

I am posting about jackets for tall women, and right now it is 95 degrees outside.
Despite it being officially Fall, the weather here in my part of Texas is like “Don’t rush me, but I’ll go ahead and let you enjoy 3 minutes of cool air, but then it’s time to turn up again”. Yes, yesterday there was a cold draft that felt like it lasted literally 5 minutes. -___-

I hear that some of y’all are experiencing some real Fall temperatures, for at least an hour, so I’m gonna go ahead and pick my favorite jackets for tall women. Let me know which ones are your favorites!

P.S. Since I schedule my posts out, maybe by the time you can see this, it might be a cool 75 degrees outside. -___-

Tall Maternity Clothes

0

I was asked about finding maternity clothes for tall women. Okay, yeah, that is even harder to find but I think I may have come up with a few good options.

1. RG Maternity – The pants and jeans have 36-38″ inseam. The shirts have extra length in sleeves and torso.

2. Mommy Long Legs 1st of all, how cute is that name? Long sleeve shirts have 27″ sleeve and there’s an additional 5″ added to the torso. The jeans have a 37″ inseam with a little extra seam to let out if needed.

3. ASOS Maternity I wasn’t sure if I should include this one, but the models are listed as being 5’11” so some of these jeans may be long enough for some of you.

4. Sierra Lane – Features designer maternity jeans with 32″ – 37″ inseams.

5. Long Tall Sally – You already know this was going to be on this list. Inseams up to 38″, but the leggings pictured only have 36″ inseam left available.

Out of these places listed, RG Maternity appears to be the most popular for tall pregnant women.

P.S. I tried remembering what I wore when I was pregnant with both of my kids, but I can’t. I’m sure I wore pants eventually during those 9 months… I think.

Prissy Duck – New Store for Women of any Height

0

Have you heard of Prissy Duck? I may have stumbled across another fashion option for tall girls y’all!

It was created by 6′ tall Stephanie Foster (yes, she does play basketball) and her creations are being described as an edgy, yet chic contemporary clothing that exudes confidence and femininity. She has said that while playing basketball she came across a lot of tall women who also couldn’t find fashionable clothing that fits right. This was her motivation to start Prissy Duck.

 

This is what is written on the About Us page:

Being sure not to leave anyone out, Prissy Duck is available in a variety of lengths and sizes for almost everyone to enjoy!  Helping women feel beautiful is our main goal, and we want women to radiate confidence, beauty, and individuality whenever they put on a Prissy Duck design.

One aspect near and dear to our hearts is the availability of longer in-seamed items to taller women.  Being 6’ tall and playing basketball her entire life, owner/designer Stephanie Foster knows many women who share the same frustrations when trying to find pants and tops that are long enough.  Frustrated with the lack of fashionable clothing available to tall women, Stephanie set out to create a clothing line that provides just that!  Using her own experiences and challenges as inspiration for her clothing, Prissy Duck has begun to bridge the fashion gap between taller women and fashionable clothes.

And here is one of the dresses she created:

She says that the option for custom work is available, but it depends on how fast you need it done, and exactly what you’re requesting. As soon as I’m able to get an idea of the price ranges, I’ll update and let y’all know. Until then, be sure to subscribe to my newsletter.
