There are so many things I want to do when I find the one. Obviously, as someone who is waiting for her husband, sex is at the tippy top of that list (let's keep it real) but another more stylish point on my list of todos is to wear my man's clothes. I mean, it's a whole new, super comfy wardrobe that is already mine and he has no idea that he is building it for me right as we speak.

Until then, I have to make do with some select menswear inspired choices of my own and this oversized dress shirt from H&M definitely fits the bill. You can dress it up or down but the end result is always a sultry, fierce look. An oversized dress shirt is one of my must have options for spring and summer.

Today I paired it with a faux leather mini skirt but you can rock it with some ripped skinny jeans, shorts, really anything and create the same sexy style.

My foot candy is from a brand that is climbing to the top of my shoe heart with every style they release! The Mercedes is by Smash Shoes (also comes in black). They make some super hot styles in sizes 10-13. If you haven't checked them out...what are you waiting for!?! I have also reviewed the Rollie in a previous post and can't say enough about the brand that was created just for us!

This is also proof that you can walk in to a store and find something. It's an homage to #5 on my list of Tall Style Tips that Every Tall Girl Needs to Know...TRY EVERYTHING ON! You will have some misses but the makes are worth the trials!

PS. Yes I am aware that I need a tan. I tried a little DIY bronzing with some disastrous results (which I cleverly tried to disguise in my last post with makeup)  but until I master it, this is what you are going to get. A Tall Girls pockets can't pay for a constant spray tan and I definitely doesn't have the time or proper sun to lay out right now...ya feel me!

Catch ya later Tall Beauties! xoxo:)

#TTYA4LTS: SUMMER

Alicia JayComment

IT'S HERE! The first wave of the #TTYA4LTS Summer Capsule Collection has arrived and it is absolutely stunning. I mean, stunning really doesn't do it justice. It's completely breathtaking in the best kind of way.

While I haven't been able to rock every piece yet, the options that I have tried are very well constructed. They are simply chic and made specifically for our frames. A prime example are the crop tops. As you can see they don't look like a bra on us. They hit right where a crop top should. Also, peep the inner skirt of the Eyelet Mesh Pencil Skirt. Normally it wouldn't even cover our buns, but this option is appropriately short on our long stems. I'm pretty much infatuated with every facet of this eyelet beauty.

Another platinum star for the line is that you can mix and match for multiple looks from minimal pieces. You can work the crop tops with any bottom in the line as well as many of the pieces you already have in your closet. That piece alone can make a fierce change in your wardrobe.

OK. You know that feeling when you find something that fits like a glove and you shed some style tears? It happened with the Sheer V-Neck Jumpsuit. Real tears man. It's just so ridiculously chic and feels like butter. I zipped it up and a tear fell down my cheek. From the sheer décolleté to the deep-V (which is great for those like moi who are lacking cleavage) to the cut of the jumpsuit in the legs and torso, it was just too much for a tall girl to handle. I might change casual Friday's to Sheer V-Neck Jumpsuit Friday's just so I can rock it on a regular basis. You think I'm playin.

So. What do I think about the line so far? In one word: supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus. It's the only one I could think of that could do it justice. I am sold and can't wait to try the rest of the line!

The video clip of me rockin the line on Instagram and Facebook is a little sneak peek of a full video review that is coming soon. Stay tuned! Until then, drool over these amazing images from the #TTYA4LTS Summer Capsule Collection Lookbook!

Seeing Red

Spring is definitely peeking though (and we love her) but until she is here for good, I have been spending the last chilly days I have in casual chic style.

I will always rock a fierce heel but when I work a lot (which seems like always nowadays), I tend to gravitate towards low-key looks in my downtime.

Today's outfit is a perfect example of casual meeting chic. It's completely comfy with an edge. The longline vest (which can be dressed up or down), gives the all black a pinch of drama and the pop-of-red Jordans pull the whole look together. The oversized clutch really wasn't strategically planned. I simply picked it because a bag wouldn't flow but I had a lot of stuff to carry that day. 

Now you may notice that I am wearing my trusty Long Sleeve Jersey Body from the TTYA x Long Tall Sally collection and that is because I wear it with everything! It's one of those famed, basic pieces that you can layer with pieces that are not necessarily tall (like the longline vest). Invest in the basics and you will unlock a whole new wardrobe!

So that's my version of casual-chic dahling...what do you rock in your downtime beautiful?

Ah. The infamous tunic. You know...the shirt that is supposed to go past your booty but usually ends up just looking like a typical shirt on us. Yep. That tunic.

Well, today I have a real, tall tunic that shatters all of your tunic disappointments. It fits just like a bonafied, tried and true tunic should. Long, with long arms and full booty coverage. Cha-ching my tall friend!

The Two Pocket Tunic Shirt is one of the new arrivals in the Long Tall Sally Spring Collection. I am obviously in love with the fit, but also the versatility and vibrant color. This season, blue has in many ways become the new black so you can rock it in many different ways with many different colors and patterns.

I love pairing blue and black together and stripes are my jam right now so I whipped up this look and absolutely love it. And before I get any comments...yes...this is the hat you have seen in like 3 of my other posts. Listen, I wear things more than once (gasp). In addition, I have a rather large head which makes selecting hats a difficult task. Thus, when I find one that works, I rocketh it ofteneth.

I also have to talk about this crossbody clutch. I found the actual clutch at a used bag place in Oakland for $6.99. It had an ugly rope handle, so me with my DIY self, cut it off and replaced it with black chain and clasps. I love it because you can adjust the length really easily with the clasps and, well, it looks cool.

I really want to say something else whitty but it's 1amish and I am one tired tall girl so I leave you to sleep and have sweet dreams. Smooches!
