Sock it to Me

Hey tall, beautiful people! It's been way too long. A little thing called the NBA season hit me like a ton of bricks (as I work for the Golden State Warriors). I had to get into a work-werk balance. I am here now. Let's talk tall style shall we? Of course we shall...

You may have heard me talk about tall-short length. It is one of the hardest things for us to find. When retailers cut tall garments, they often overcompensate on all of the clothing and go WAY too long on something that is supposed to be short. Yes, wearing short dresses off the rack is often a no-no for many reasons including unintentional flashes of your lady (we certainly can't have that) but that doesn't mean we have to go all the way to the other side and rock a dowdy dress. No can do. Those legs deserve to be showed off in a sexy, acceptable manner.

The Tall Black Check Dress from Next certainly fits the tall-short bill. It shows off the legs but keeps the rest concealed. It has a classic look with all kinds of sass woven into it. I also love the high collar and I wanted to accentuate it even more so I put on the Long Sleeve Jersey Body from TTYA for Long Tall Sally right underneath. I am a huge fan of a layered neckline.

I paired the fab dress with some knee high socks because that school girl look is always fun right? Plus they went perfectly with these timb-esk booties. I've been trying to tell yall that Payless is where it's at!

Lastly, it's fall and in the Bay Area that means it's just starting to get a little chilly so I threw on this Easy Knit Cardigan from Long Elegant Legs. I love the long length in both the arms and body. It's super soft too.

Wow, I must say that I missed you terribly for the last 16 days. I am so glad we are back together again and looking fabulous as usual:)
