Blue Beauty

I have two words for you: SHIRT DRESS.  Yes, there is one that is long enough for us and it happens to come in a beautiful royal blue color. 

It's the Long Tall Sally Long Line Shirt Dress and I am obsessed!  You are not seeing things.  It's true and I have the review to prove it.  Check it out!

LONG LINE SHIRT DRESS from LongTallSally.com. $85. Sizes 6-18.Don't forget to buy accessories!  Long Tall Sally has those too.  Check out the bangles I'm wearing in the video HERE. They go perfectly with the dress. Just enough blue to compliment it but not enough to be matchy, matchy.

8 PACK BANGLES IN SILVER/TURQUOISE. $25. Also comes in the GOLD/IVORY option below.

TODAY: Tall Remix

I am an avid watcher of the Today Show. I love their fashion segments. They are short, sweet and pack a fashion punch of information. Although I have yet to see a tall segment on the show (please note: I will come on at ANY time to show the world some TallSWAG:), they give great information for trends, deals and steals.

Here is a recent segment on spring shoe trends with Ann Curry and tall beauty Hoda Kotb:

Outside the Lines

Spring and Summer.  Two of my favorite words.  They bring warmer weather, summer lovin (watch out now), vacations and one of my personal favorites, new fashions!  This year spring and summer is all about color and print.  From bright and bold to cool, both are taking over.

The key to using color and print successfully is finding what works for you in the right garment.  You should never have one without the other.  For example, you may look good in an orange tribal print but if the garment makes you look 10 times bigger than you are, you will be the girl in orange tribal print that looks ten times bigger then she is. Capiche?

Below are some options and trends for Spummer.  I think you would look HOT in all of them but feel free to pick and choose based on YOU:)  Have fun coloring! Try not to stay in the lines.

COLOR. COLOR AND MORE COLOR. Use it to compliment YOU. TREND ALERT: Color blocking is a great way to showcase color.  Colored denim adds just the right amount of color and pleats make color unique. DON'T FORGET THE ORANGE. It's the "IT" color for spummer.

HEATHER SKINNY JEAN IN COLOR at HeightGoddess.com. $129. Comes in magenta, royal blue and dark mocha.  Sizes 26-33. Inseams 37" and 39".

TALL COTTON TRENCH COAT IN PICNIC ORANGE at Loft.com. $129.99. Sizes XXS-XXL. 38" long. Also comes in deep khaki.

B.F.T BY BAREFOOT TESS SANTA BARBARA HEEL IN GREEN at BarefootTess.com. $79. Sizes 11-14. 1" heel. Also comes in red and black.


 

BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. Make a statement by simply walking into a room. This season, the bolder the print, the better.  Don't go overboard.  Prints shouldn't have a party.  Stick to one and let it shine.  Tribal is popular but animal is still in the "cool" crowd.

GEO PRINT TUNIC at NextDirect.com. $66. Sizes 4-14. 38" length.

STEVE MADDEN TAILOR FLAT IN TAUPE MULTI at BarefootTess.com. $49. Sizes 11-13. Also comes 7 other colors.

HOT or NOT? Jumpsuit Edition

The jumpsuit is one of those pieces of tall clothing that is ridiculously hard to come by.  I find myself jumping (pun intended) at the chance to buy one the moment I see it. So, when I came across this tall JS I almost automatically clicked BUY but then I stepped back and really looked at it.  I thought, is this cute or is it just something I can't find and want to have in my closet.

This is where you come in.  Be my fashion glasses.  Is this HOT or NOT?

LEL. $89. 36" inseam. S-XXL. Flutter sleeves, flattering smocked empire waist, and full, flowy wide leg. Like what you see? Watch the video below to see how it looks on. Click the pic to order your own.
