Last week I went to the Sade-John Legend concert with my Dad (the concert was AMAZING btw...Sade killed it and furthermore has to know where the fountain of youth is...share it with us Ms. Adu:).
Seeing as how I was going with my Dad, I had to tone it down a bit. Now, pump ur breaks, don't go thinking that I usually wear a pot holder to an event BUT out of respect for my Dad, low cut tops and dresses were out. So I had to think of a way to be cute in a conservative manner.
My solution: a blazer. I wore it over a long form fitting top with leggings and 4.5" peep toe shooties. It was the perfect 'polish' for my outfit. As a matter of fact, blazers are so versatile that you can rock them up or down, to work, a concert, pretty much anywhere. Check out these tall blazers below and pick the one that best suits your plans!

Nobody wants to say goodbye to sunshine BUT everybody wants to say hello to fall fashion. This season is filled with 'ladylike' design, pops of color, print, mixed metals and stunning footwear. Fall11 is tall, fall fashion at it's finest. I can't wait to put my spin on these trends and SWAG them out...can u?
1. MAKE A STATEMENT WITH PRINT: This Long Tall Sally Check Jersey dress ads bold to a classic cut. The dress also checks off another trend: dresses the hit at or below the knee. $105. Longtallsally.com. Sizes extra small to extra large. 42.5" long.
2. SKY-HIGH FOOTWEAR: Platforms with a pop of color are a must have for fall11. They set off any outfit and make you feel incredible. My fav: Vince Camuto 'Jasper' Mary Jane Pump. $118.95. Nordstrom.com. Sizes 4-12.
3. ANIMAL PRINT PARTY:Never wear it head-to-toe but animal print in doses is definitely in. The Tall Mad Men Collection Leopard Print Trenchis amazing. Unforgettable and haute. Get it now. $198. Sizes S-L. Bananarepublic.com.
4. WIDE IDEA:Variations of wide leg pants and jeans are going to be everywhere this season. Although the skinnies are still in the mix, a bottom such as the 1969 Super Lightweight Pintucked Trouser Jean, creates a sleek, long look that will be included in every collection. $79.95. Sizes 4 to 16. 38" inseam. Gap.com.
5. ALI ALI OXFORD FREE:Oxford's are comfy and add a polish that not many flats can attain. Don't like flats? You are in luck because oxford inspired footwear in any form, heel to shootie, is a fall favorite. Check out the Brash Bobby Jazz Oxford from Payless.com. $29.99. Sizes 5-13.
6. LAYER IT: No, I am not talking about cake (but I like that too). Layers are so comfy and if done right, fashionable. The Layered Ruched Tunic from Long Elegant Legsis a perfect example. Not only does it 'lay' right, it also comes in a hot fall color: green. $58. Sizes S-XXL. Super long arms and 30" in body length.
7. CARD ME: The easiest way to 'pretty' an outfit up is with a feminine cardigan. There are plenty of tall ones for us to choose from including the Tall Contrast Stitch Open Cardigan from TopShop. $80. Sizes 4-12 (hurry, going fast...it's a HOT item).
11. LOAFIN AROUND: Nobody will call you lazy when it comes to footwear if you rock these. This pair of high heel loafers are must haves. They are the IT pair of shoes for fall11. Get acquainted with Unmixed from Nine West. Sizes 5-12. Ships 9/9.
12-14. THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Accesorize in a BOLD manner. Now, don't go overboard. Keep your bold statement to one piece.
If you haven't been to Long Legs you MUST go now! There are endless tall fashions for us long legged ladies:) Two of my favs are the 38" inseam Yoga Jean and the Summer Red Blazer (don't let the names fool you. You don't wear the jeans for yoga and the blazer can be worn in all seasons). Check out the vidviews and visit LongLegs.ca today!
*Please excuse my bad hair day in the blazer review. One of those days:)
I have been on vacation (I know...I have been slackin big time on my tweets and FB posts...my bad) and the number one question I have been getting while gettin my vacay on is, "where do you get your jeans?" So I decided to post ALL of my favs. No, I don't have all of these jeans HOWEVER if I won the lottery tomorrow I would have 2 pair of each (when you find some GREAT jeans, you have to buy a back-up pair:).
