Hello Beautiful! It's been quite awhile since my last post. My bad. Life has been crazy. I have an amazing project that I have been working on (that I can't quite talk about yet) and the Playoffs (Go Warriors!) are right around the corner so I have been slammed. Please know that I missed you every moment I was away!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I raved about the H&M New Neutrals line. I love a great neutral and all of the pieces (which flew off the shelves) were right up my alley. I went to the store the day they were released and of course most of the options didn't fit BUT they had this amazing sweater that did. It's super comfy but has side detailing that makes the sweater polished. It has short sleeves, which make it a great option for us and also a surprisingly long body. I know I say it time and time again but it's a testament to the fact that you must try things on.

I put on a form fitting skirt to balance out the silhouette and threw on my babies...the Rollie from Smash Shoes. Side Note: Smash Shoes just came out with an over the knee boot in sizes 10-13 which you will see in a future post so stay tuned. And last but not least, I added one of my fav trends this season, a bag in a bag! You can bring all of your stuff in the bigger bag or put the essentials in the smaller bag and keep it movin...a Tall Girl loves her some options!

It's great seeing you again:-) Have a great day Luv...Stand Tall in everything you do!

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 Jay1 Comment

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!
