Celebrate the Luxury of YOU

Tell me when was the last time you tried on a garment or pair of shoes that had the trifecta of luxury: custom fit, quality and great design?

I know. That's a tough one. Especially for us.

Fit is probably the hardest of the three however I've partnered with @PoppyBarley & @MARGEClothing to champion a message to tall women everywhere: Celebrate the luxury of you with clothing and footwear exclusively designed to your unique frame and lifestyle.

Poppy Barley is a premier designer of ethically handcrafted leather footwear in custom foot widths, calf widths and boot heights ranging in sizes 5 to 12. MARGE is a premier upscale womenswear brand designing luxurious collections and custom pieces for the tall, confident, modern woman.

Want a chance to win a little bit of this luxury? Enter to win a luxury wardrobe of your choice from Poppy Barley (valued at $500) and MARGE Clothing (valued at $1000) when you sign up to the #PoppyBarleyxMARGE mailing list (link in profile), plus, automatically claim your exclusive discount code just for entering. Indulge in beautifully curated, thoughtfully constructed clothing and footwear essentials. 

If I could enter, I most certainly would...there is nothing like a custom made piece and both Both MARGE and Poppy Barley craft key pieces that are custom made for Tall women. Both companies hold themselves to the highest standards of construction and ensure that their products are special for every customer. They value the process and the final product and that makes their shoes and clothes valuable to me in more ways than one.

I don't know about you but in The Bay the weather is confused right now.  In a way, I think it's having a spring-fall identity crisis.  For example the high today is 73 degrees.  Excuse me weather but it's October and I want to wear all of my fabulous fall clothes.

With that said, I am still in transition mode.  Because of the cold mornings and warm afternoons, I am  having to wear a lot of layers.  I am also trying to infuse a little fall while at the same time acknowledging the spring-like weather. 

My remedy? A cream blazer to spring it up and some fall hints to bring it all together. 

I absolutely love this pleated skirt from target.  I got it from the clearance rack last season.  It also has a fab faux leather detail at the waist that is perfect for this season.  For fall and winter I am going to pair it with a camel turtleneck, tights and boots.

The tall cambray shirt from Gap is the perfect piece for any season. You can roll up the sleeves or wear them down (yes, they are long enough for us), layer it or wear it on it's own.  It's a must have staple for our closets.

One of my favorite pieces to rock is a 3/4 sleeve blazer and this cream baby is perfect for transitional outfits.  Crispy, clean and effortless.

The shoes, THE SHOES! You know I love a good Payless pick-up and I almost passed out at my computer when I saw these (yes, I know I am dramatic).  Color blocking, animal print, up to size 13...need I say more?  You get tall girl points Christian!  Let me know if you want me to test some shoes for you (or ya know, just rock every pair that you make).  I am totally down.

What fits are you feeling this October?
